    I got that Lebron wants to be in LA, and I got that Kawhi wants out of San Antonio. What I do not get is the fervor for what Kyle Kuzma can fetch by way of trade. Did I miss something about this guy? He is Ryan Gomes with a little more agility.

    LeBron thought he was superteaming with PG/Leonard.  Now he is looking at having Magic/Kobe/Lavar in his ear every two seconds, Lonzo’s guy doubling every LeBron drive, Kuczma and Ingram not giving a shit about defense, Lance and Javale :lol: doing whatever stupid shit it is they do, and those fakkakta “fans” expecting a championship right from the jump.  Call my doctor

    Who is he going to do his gay intro press conference/event with, Kareem and Magic?

    The JR Smith play had to have been the last straw.  Like I’ll put up with all the aforementioned Chico bullshit and won’t have to listen to my wife and kids yappa yappa about why a multimillionaire and his family are living in fucking Cleveland and I’m tired of playing with these dummies.  Where do I sign.

    Really hope the Spurs call Kawhi’s bluff, re: sitting out another season. I mean isn’t it better for them to go Kawhi-less against a Kawhi-less Lakers team for a year than give in to his extortion?

    “Yankee Stadium hopped and it shook and it throbbed in a way that we’ve only seen on rare occasions. If you closed your eyes, you could almost believe you were back in the old park, with all the old acoustics, where the sound of Red Sox-Yankees could cause your heart to quicken and your pulse to race, April or October, as long as those two ancient combatants were sharing the field.”

    That’s what you want out of a $35 tour isn’t it?

    “People on board a duck boat sailing past the Longfellow Bridge spotted a body floating in the Charles River on Monday and authorities are now on the scene investigating, an official said.”

    Laker fans that I know are NOT as overly optimistic as the braindead media is. Most realize they have almost no chance of getting by either Houston or Golden State no matter who else they sign this offseason. For as bad a rap as LakerFan(tm) always used to get, I think that is the minority and more like the Joe Gill superfan who pee their shoes after the first 3-and-out of the Pats season. Most are pretty realistic and live in the real world. It was sort of a letdown actually.

    Are they at all sheepish at the fact that nearly all of their greatest players came to LA by weaseling their way there and forcing trades or stiffing their previous teams in free agency? Wilt – Kareem – Shaq – Kobe – and now LeBron?

    Japan holding up against Belgium so far. Bill Parcell approves.

    JAP PLAY!

    And then Belgium’s chance to answer clangs off the post. Very interesting.

    OK. Japan up 2-0 on Belgium in an elimination round might be the most unexpected scoreline of the tourney so far.

    Crazy Belgian goal. A popped up header meant to set up a teammate floats over the GK and into the far side of the net like a chip. No one would ever try that.

    Lakers doing Laker things and designing the appropriate mix of Has Beens and Never Was’ around LeBron.

    Three straight years of drafting at #2 overall and they landed D’Angelo Russell, Brandon Ingram, and Lonzo Ball.  Year before that they get Julius Randle at 7.   What a bunch of fucking garbage.  You can’t miss like that on multiple picks drafting in those positions, which makes the Ball pick last year that much more terrible.  Go ahead, sign Lebron.  He doesn’t care anymore, you almost wonder if he’s thinking going to the finals 8 straight years I need a break, get done by April/May for once.  Money’s the same, shut the wife and kids up, which is like signing a supermax deal in itself, and you don’t live in Ohio anymore.  Lakers need to try to be relevant somehow.

    Rondo to LA.

    Is Lonzo a rich man’s Rondo, a poor man’s Rondo, or Rondo 2.0?

    I swear between signing Javale, Stephenson, and Rondo added to the Ball family, the goal is more to stock the Lakers with entertaining personalities than a basketball roster that makes sense.

    What the hell is rondo going to do when at every critical point in a given game LeBron decides to be the point guard?  Knock down open threes :lol:

    If LeBron shares the court with Rondo, Lonzo, Lance, and McGee then Rondo is his best outside shooting option.
