He also has to play with Boogie again.

He has experience seeing Boogie go down with an injury and sweeping a Portland team without him.

He could very easily end up signing elsewhere after this season.

Frank Vogel...lol, my goodness.

Dunno if he has it in him to shine Bron and their joint agent Rich Paul, but after waiving his $4M trade kicker, AD has shown more than his share of good faith. He could walk away without looking back.

I'm still a bitter Lin fan at how the Lakers did him dirty.

I so want Lin to sign for whatever, 4mil or the vet min, and work his way into the Clipper rotation as the main backup PG. Then against the Lakers, EXPLODE, like he's capable of doing once in a while, and just clown on those fools.

Would provide for the perfect, Battle for LA narrative storyline of how LAL is a mess and that their former players love to dump on em.

Then combine with Avery Bradley just straight sucking. Bleh, i cant believe the Lakers wasted the full room exception on him.

I'm a huge LeBron stan, have him as my GOAT and everything, but let's be real: we were already in the Kawhi and Giannis era before this offseason. So many of the other big names from LeBron's era are either retired, washed up or out of the league, so the torch is being passed to the next generation.

POsts like this are exactly why I don't buy into the whole "LA BEEF" or whatever laker fans themselves say. People know damn well, if LA is in the finals , regardless of what team and they win a championship, the city is going to celebrate. For the finals, Laker fans will become clipper fans. We already saw it during the Lob city era.

I'mma say this now.. If we come out and play that hard nosed ball, dunking/poster-rizing dudes, swagged out, sh*t talking, 3 point bombing, winning games, entertaining, must watch television, etc. brand of basketball. Outside of the hardcore Laker fanss and the haters.. the entire city will be forced to f*ck with us. All the casuals and flip-floppers will hope aboard immediately! LA never and I mean NEVER turns down an entertaining product.

After making a social media spectacle out of giving AD number 23, LeIndian Giver will be keeping the number.

Just lol.
These guys can’t get anything right.

I don't like or buy the whole, "we're not rivals" thing.

Put us and them in a playoff series and there's gonna be fireworks.
We don't like each other and we don't have to pretend like that's not a thing just because they have chips and we don't.

We're rivals. Rivalries don't require equal accomplishments for both teams. Red Sox and Yankees have always been rivals but the Red Sox don't come close to Yanks when it comes to accomplishments.

We hate each other and that's enough to make it a rivalry. And Laker fans saying it's not a rivalry just proves their insecurity.
