LeGM is not happy.

Seems to be a common theme w/r/t who he wants on the team.


Lol do you work for a tabloid?


No. What I see is Russ talking to Lebron and Lebron isn’t even looking his way.

But again, Lebron can’t be mad. He wanted Russ like he wanted JR, etc.


LeBron defended Russ after the game yet again. It’s a big leap to assume that LeBron is upset at a guy he keeps heaping praise on.


Cool. Maybe he’s just pissed in the heat of the moment.

I’d love nothing more than Russ and LBJ to make this work, but if careers are any indication, it’s Russ that needs to adjust not LBJ.

LBJ playing center should be eye opening to Davis. He deals his guy and catches the guy down low. When AD gets back, that’s what he has to do, not run action for him, only to give him an iso look 18 feet from the basket.

Yea pretty much. I feel like the LeBron at center lineups can be a huge playoff weapon in spurts against the right team. For ten minutes or so in games with real stakes I can see LeBron doing all the little things he needs to do for that lineup to work (make early rotations, protect the rim, etc). But being forced to use LeBron at center during every minute he’s on the court is just not sustainable.

I'd gladly give up the bubble title to live in a world where we signed AD as a free agent and have a team with AD, LeBron, Lonzo, Ingram, Hart, Kuzma, Caruso, DeAndre Hunter, and KCP. We have 18 years of proof that LeBron is a terrible GM.

Not even Lacob could afford that roster

Nah. Not worth it. 7 years of misery followed by 1 title 2 b.s. seasons and another 10 years of misery. Nope. This is the Lakers. We shouldn't be bad for most of a 20 year span.

Especially in the same year we lost Kobe, without LBJ, who knows when that next title would have ever materialized. Many ownership groups out there have far greater resources than the Buss kids, you’ve got to try to get a title while you still have a window of opportunity.. You never know when you’ll ever be back in the Finals again.

Yep, you sign and go with Lebron 100/100 times, without a doubt. People that disagree are just haters, pure haters. Look at all the years the Lakers were irrelevant, even with having Kobe at the end of his career. No one wanted to play here until Lebron signed.

2020 title - Because of Lebron

You take that 100/100 times....

Now with the flawed roster, the turnover in roster, etc., that's on Lebron, Pelinka, Jeanie, etc. But as a player, Lebron has been great and I love having him here.

Exactly, I'm not trading that title for anything.

Championships don't just grow on trees, there are teams out there that haven't won anything in 50+ years. Even in some fantasy world where we keep all the young guys and sign AD a year later, there's any number of things that could go wrong and keep us from winning a title.

Fixed… First year has always been a trial season. Specially after we didn’t land a second star. Then became a punt season after Lebron/Zo/Ingram all got hurt. Last year also because of injuries and the team never established any true chemistry. But still had a lead vs the Suns until AD gone down. This year started already injured and just slowly getting players back then add all the health and safety protocols. Just hope they can make a move and AD stays healthy when he gets back. Hopefully they make a run after ASB.

Only thing I don’t like are roster overhaul each year after they won the title. AD move had to happen as they won it on that same year. But even LeGM with the Cavs never done that much roster overhaul until the last year when Kyrie asked to be traded.

I wonder if Bron has had that conversation with AD like "Yo, we effed up man."

I guess these fans prefer us to be bubble losers instead of bubble champions.

Yeah never quite understood that. But I do think anything less than 2 titles in the Bron/AD era is a failure. Hope we can get one more.

i wish that can be the case too, but injuries can happen to any team at any moment especially injuries to Lebron last season. if we get today's Lebron in the playoffs last season, we might have a really good chance of beating the Suns without AD.

Teams trade away their entire futures and get a conference finals at best out of it. We got a title. Not sure how any true fan of a team can say that getting a title isn’t worth it. Like, what are you rooting for then?

i always come back to this, we traded our so called assets for AD, but at the same time, people need to realize that AD is a huge asset himself. if any team wants to trade for him, they have to pay us a hefty price. although his decline in age and his injuries might have ticked down his value, but he is still an asset.
he was 26 at the time of the trade, you pay a lot for 26 year old superstars period.

That's a good point people overlook. It's not like we traded Ingram, Ball, and Hart for a 40-year-old guy. We traded them for a young superstar who might well be on the team for 5 years more.

That said, it's hard to fight the forces of "what might have been," because they can always imagine amazing alternative realities.
