Typical Ballmer move in biz and in sports... Doc takes the fall for Paul Georges complete ineptitude when it matters.

I'm rooting for JVG... i don't want to hear Lue's voice... although Doc to Ty Lue is a all NBA wtf voice combo.

If we get Jeff as Clip coach... we need some being drug by Howards Leg's sigs.

If Tyrone Lue is hired by Ballmer, good luck to Kawhi’s knees come April-May.

I might do DGreen and a pick or DGreen and Kuz, but not all 3... Not for Heild... I just don't trust him to be a reliable role-player on a team between AD and LeBron or whoever we get to replace LeBron down the road. I see a Low-IQ chucker there... Like a glorified Swaggy P.

Hield shoots better, but he's basically a shorter, less disciplined KCP... They're the same age. If we got out from under KCP I might give it a shot though.

There are thigs that D Green does both offensively and defensively that help us win that Heild or Wiggins would never even dream of doing.
I'm not sure I'd make that trade TBH.

I guess the question with Wiggins is, could he be better if you put him around veterans?

He has the tools and his offensive game is fine already. His defense is the issue but it can be a huge boost to perimeter defense ability just having a guy like AD or Dwight backing them up.

He is going into his 8th season and I'm just not that impressed.
It's an interesting thought about him being around veterans. That may work.
The problem is he makes $30 million a year.
If I'm paying that much for my 3rd best player, he better be a Butler or PG13 level talent which is water under the bridge.

Lakers will be operating as an over the cap team anyway until their championship run ends. They will be trading for talent.

I never gotten into those MJ v Lebron debates they get into on the GB. Didnt even care. But I entered into one, and then added a couple words on the board. And HOLY SHEEIIT, the MJ and Bron Legacy protectors are for Real. Weve got legacy runnin throughout our Franchise. Winning is not the main thing round here, Winning is the ONLY thing. And I'm happy that Bron was able to accomplish that here. Nevertheless , the testiness between the MJers and Bronnites whenever one name is mentioned over another is off the charts. Im just happy Bron is here, and he is doing his part to lead our team to hoist #17.

Coupla Funny things I heard last night.
Mark Jackson: The the Lakers will start Caruso tonight, I would have started Mcgee.

Van Gundy: Do you think Coach Vogel took a sip of the Champagne at halftime?
