Because Lonzo missed half the season.

Just a reminder that Gregg Popovich, who loves to bitch about the Gasol trade managed to trade kawhi for YMCA Kobe and a late first round pick.

It would be poetic justice if Kawhi ends up with the Lakers.

Toronto's defense is worth at least 2 wins. They have the depth and personnel to give GS some real issues with Durant on the sidelines.

Iggy being on sidelines is what really hurts them.

Man, if the Warriors don't get Durant back, or he's considerably less than 100 percent, I'll give Toronto a real shot at winning this. GS's margin for error is next to nothing without him.

DO you guys think there's still a chance of landing Kyrie?

I would love to get Kyrie ? I mean Yes Kahwi should be #1 option, but Kyrie should be #2 option

This way we can use Ball to trade him and Ingram, #4 for Beal

Build around

Kyrie
Beal
Kuzma

land AD 2020:)

Kyrie and Bradley Beal? Or is there another better Beal I’m unaware of? They both make a lot of money and neither are good enough when paired with a declining LeBron to make the Lakers a contender....

No NOPE and AWWW HELLLL NAWWWW! To that!

Goals have to be Davis or Kawhi!

Today I learned that Brook Lopez made more threes this season than Kobe has in any one season. That's **** nuts.

This off season is going to be the most exciting by far in probably close to the last 10 seasons

Although I'd laugh so hard that I'd cry if lakers ended up just getting tier 3 type players - It would be funny as hell, but at the same time I'd cry.

I know it's gotta be DAvis or Kawhi ... But you gotta have a plan B and C just in case

Beal is a 25 5-5 player you ain't gonna get much better then that- unless of coursse it's AD/Kahwi

If we land Kyrie and can get Beal in trade why not? I don't think AD trade gonna happen and by the time FA comes around He'll probably change mind ?

The cherry on top of this **** sundae would be them announcing that AD has been convinced to stay for another season.

I assume AD reiterated his desire to be traded. I think pelicans will send him east.

If we trade anything significant for CP3, I'm done... That's not rhetoric... I'm done.

And by significant, I mean anything more significant than Pelinka's book collection.

And blocked more shots than KG ever did which threw me because I remember him goal tending all them free throws lol.

Would love to have Brook back and would have loved to kept him and had him and McGee last year
