Not sure why Ibaka was taking forever on this decision. He could've landed with us if he just picked up the pace a little bit. Oh well, I'll take the younger player and reigning 6th man of the year.

Ibaka is an odd fit on the Clips. Good reunion with Kawhi. But they don’t have a FVV directing the traffic in Clipperland.
He would have been a better fit with us but I love the Harrell signing .

The Knicks didn’t offer FVV the brinks truck is why. Every outlet expected them to offer an overpay to him but all reports says new front office didn’t. If they came out and overpaid or over offered from the start Ibaka can go back to Toronto and get a balloon payment before free agency.

Sixers are stupid if they don't pay Illysova and Bellineli the vet min. Simmons had such great synergy with them and they spread the floor great for him

He was a decoy. Just like Kawhi last year. Thankfully, Rob didn't fall for the same trick twice.

Great signing by the Clippers, makes sense for them. If they don't win next season they implode. Still prefer Harrell for any other reason than going all in for the season.

They still have a problem though. Ibaka worked best with Gasol and Lowry/FVV in Toronto, both types of players are completely missing on that Clippers roster.

I'm actually all for swapping our veteran legion for new hungry ring chasers. It's risky, we know vets like Howard, Green, Rondo, KCP and Bradley worked well for us last year. I do believe that they achieved their only big purpose left to shoot for and next season would lack the hunger that propelled us this year. Getting new blood eager to show up every single night and work hard next to the 2 superstars is the best course for us.

I like our off-season so far, makes me more confident than I was last year. Stay healthy AD and keep Father Time in the background Bron.

Nicalus Batum's Agent.

“Six teams have contacted us and showed interest in Nico: Nets, Warriors, Jazz, Clippers, Bucks and Raptors,” Medjana said. “Nico is in the best shape of his life. He’s been working hard with coaches for two months. He lost ten kilos (roughly 22 pounds)

If I was him I would bank on the Raptors to have Lowry set me up. The Warriors already have BAzemore to reclaim as a project.

Can't believe the contracts Gallinari, Hayward, and Bogdanovic signed. All that protesting in the bubble was completely futile. White privilege on full display right under their noses.

How we land Bertans at this point is hard to see but with Rob beasting it so far I’m not ruling anything out.

Imagine that starting lineup. $100 million that would translate into 15 wins.

You basically were told if you aren’t a white guy and floor spacer you ain’t getting paid this free agency sans Grant.

Whiteside averaged a hell of a double double on a playoff team while being healthy and causing no locker room problems but can’t get a deal. Harrell won 6moy and got the mle. Tristen was a double double and got mle. Ibaka averaged 15 and 8 while shooting 40 from three and got the mle. Rondo after being playoff Rondo got 7mil per year. A euro league guard got tax player mle to be third string for **** sake while Austin Rivers was told settle for 3 per year. And the bae was given to a guy like matthews who was a top defensive wing last year.

There wa some privilege

I’m predicting the WCF to include the Pelicans. They got Adams, Zion, Ingram, Lonzo. I will not be surprised if they go to the WCF.

I don't even think that team makes the playoffs. Here's the 8 that made it last year


Los Angeles Lakers
LA Clippers
Denver Nuggets
Houston Rockets
Oklahoma City Thunder
Utah JazZ
Dallas Mavericks
Portland Trail Blazers


Also keep in mind the sun's picked up CP3 and the warriors are getting curry back. The West is tough.

I think they have a shot at the 7-8 seed. I expect the Rockets and Thunder to either barely squeak in or miss the playoffs. I could see the Pelicans battling with the Suns/Rockets for the 8th seed.

Return to Los Angeles Lakers
