I've been emotionally exhausted these last 13 hours, woke up feeling the same. I love this f*$# team so much!!! Nothing but respect to every player that decided to wear that uniform, with so much that's going on in the world, and then ball tf out! My thoughts were with all of ya'll in this chat room, the ones that go way back, when we all got excited for the Gasol trade, the heartbreak lost of '08, the redemption of '09, and then the Revenge in '10. For all those who took crap during the years where we were irrelevant and everyone was ragging on us, this is your time too!! Fck Da Haters, the Hate is real, you can feel it, and I LOVE IT!!! Let's run it back guys!!!
Back 2 Back!!

Not to jinx things but I raise you, brother Beethoven. A three-peat isn’t out of the question. Not if we lock down AD.

2020-2021
PG: Caruso, Rondo, Bradley
SG: James, Green or KCP, THT
SF: Kuzma, FA, Caroline
PF: Davis, Morris, Cacok
C: Howard, Kostas, FA

Go huge: PG James | SG Kuz | SF Davis | PF Kostas | C Howard

Yep! You’re 100% right. One step at a time.

Step one: sign AD long term.

Step two: three-peat.

^unfortunate but that stuff happens anywhere.

Any time an opportunity to loot, vandalize , and set fire comes up, the low lifes come out of the woodworks.
That is just society. You seen it w the riots recently.

Here’s the freaky part once we’re done celebrating: with Caruso, Rondo, THT, Bradley we could afford to lose or trade a combo of KCP, Green, Smith, Waiters, Cook in favor of a younger impact guard or impact swingman. A pure shooter like Bertans would open up our offense to unstoppable degrees.

I’d keep Howard and Kostas at C, add a FA big. Kuzma earned to stay if he agrees to a two year tiered deal (2nd year player option). I still think he can and will break out into third star status. Avery Bradley, Green and KCP all did well enough to merit staying.

Damn, what a team we have! Well done, Rob.

It was bound to happen. It always does. I still remember last time when I used to work at a coffee bean in DT as my first job..
The good old days when I was fresh off of high school.

I believe no doubt we can back to back. But we must LOAD MANAGE next season.

Load manage yes the right way.

Play in every game and methodically, strictly limit mins. This way we still develop play chemistry and learn knee jerk schemes to seamlessness and still give fairness to the fans who pay to watch.

Not the class-less kawhi method.

Couldn't think of this last night because of the emotion involved but man.. that's a huge monkey off the team's back, no matter what happens.

LeBron's legacy as a Laker. Stamped. 1 Championship is enough for #23 to be up in the rafters after he retires and goes into the HOF.

The front office's trade for Anthony Davis and giving up all the kids. They got one title. Even if AD never wins a title with the Lakers again and just keeps them relevant and having playoff runs every year, the trade has been vindicated. Honestly, even if AD were to leave in a couple years (which I honestly think he will), the trade was completely worth it.

Bring on the off-season and hopefully no more bubbles as we go.

#17 feels so good. I didn't sleep much last night but I feel amazing.

I'm already on to the next thing... Dodgers playoff run, and then Free Agency... I want that 3peat and we need more talent if we're going to do it...

"he retired because the Knicks were the only team to offer him a contract, and that indicated to him that his time in the league was up."
