I think the Pacers can win this staring contest. If the Lakers start out 5-15, the noise will be deafening and the asking price will remain at 2 FRPs.

Lakers have much more to lose than the Pacers here IMO.

I'm pretty sure everyone in the league is projecting us to be a 8-10th seed. I think the fans have accepted this as well. I think the fans have also accepted that even a Turner/Hield trade does not make us a top 4 seed.

I'm convinced that we'd rather be a play-in team than trade both FRPs for that package.

If the Lakers are like 12-8 and Pacers 3-17 and Turner asks out?

Very different circumstances - enough that LA may not even want to make a trade

From what I watched yesterday, we looked beyond a Turner and Hield from a title.

It could also work the other way... where we do so badly, that we just throw in the towel and go into rebuild mode.

I get that the first half was okay... but those new players were absolutely terrible. I'm not saying there weren't promising moments but they lost 35 points of ground to a mediocre team.

I don't know how LBJ and AD compete even if Russ is doing better. They need some sort of decent second unit and just adding Schroder and Walker won't help them beat Golden State.

So, if I were Indiana, maybe I try to get something in case the Lakers go down the tubes, before it's too late.

So third-string Lakers didn't do well? That's relevant, how, exactly?

lol
