I had mentioned the same thing about Kawhi. When you make some of that NBA cash, you gotta look out for the family

It’s hard to watch what Ingram is doing right now and feel like we shouldn’t have pushed harder to keep either that #4 pick or Lonzo. If BI keeps this up his value is going to detonate.

#4 pick was the most valuable asset and Ingram and Lonzo had to be in the trade to make the money work, there’s really nothing to look back on.

Our future with Davis and Bron if infinitely brighter than if Ingram was our central player. To even be debating this is really silly IMHO. Ingram will be a good player, maybe an all star but he's just not a guy who's going to lead a top 5 team. When you can get a top 2 you have to. I was against trading everyone and was even mixed on the final trade because of the picks but when I saw the $$ and the fact we kept Kuzma I can live with it. When you get even 2 or 3 years of having the best duo in the league you have to do it. That has happened to the Lakers 3 times in 40 years. To other teams hardly ever.

Just me, or was Jrue Holliday over-rated as hell by playing next to AD?

They got to figure out this offense also... It's completely bi-polar... Either it's initiated by Ingram and Jrue isn't involved, or it's initiated by Jrue and Ingram never sees the ball.

Hasn't Jrue been dealing with an injury through training camp until about when the season started? ... or am I confusing him with someone else.

Their offense looks a lot like ours did over the last couple of years. Ingram can score but seems to need isolation to do it. That's hard to integrate into a modern offensive system of ball movement. My guess is that's why it's bi-polar.

Make the money to work, if we wanted to keep an open spot for a Max FA only right?

I’m pretty sure this is the correct answer.

The thing is, even with #4, Ingram, Ball, Lakers still needed to throw on a bunch of firsts and swap rights, so idea that they could’ve held out and kept #4, Ingram or Lonzo isn’t logical when they still had to add a bunch of stuff on top of those 3.

Well, I’m specifically talking about holding out either Lonzo or number 4 (preferably Lonzo). It wasn’t a terrible deal by Rob but it definitely feels/felt like an overpay.

Ramona got the full golden boot I see. She doesn't really talk about the lakers or know what is going on with them. She's become the clippers and any other team scraps reporter still leaning on her coverage of Sterling.

Seems like the Pelicans are everyone's guilty pleasure around here. Count me in, too. Keeping an eye on the Wizards, as well.
