I do, but I am not sure if I need LP subscription for this, since MIN is not playing for months.

Yes! He doesnt even need to wear their athletic gear. Just wear a suit and cheer on the bench! I would pay minimum for him as a hype man

Lakers beat the Heat tonight to go up 3-1. Let's get this season over with and hopefully this is the last we hear from Jimmy Butler. Go LeBron.

They should have made a combine bubble. Plus no one leaves until they've been measured.

LOL, that would force every prospect to play in drills and be properly evaluated XD. That's how we finally get these guys to stop dodging workouts!

Jimmy scoring 22 with 6 assists in first half of game 5. Heat lead by 4. I like how when he was here he was treated like a third scorer, third wheel by so many. As if.

Jimmy Butler carried them hard in that 4th. Impressive man and fun to watch. At least the Lakers got to work for the title.

Green was good with Toronto last season but he’s been a complete **** show for the Lakers.

he's still a good defender, but he can't miss open threes all day. it's awful. And Morris channeled his inner JR Smith after the rebound. Heartbreaking loss for the lakers, but it makes the series more interesting. I still think, they'll win one of the next two games.

Last three years in playoffs he averaged 25%, 32.8%, 33.3% from 3PT. I think he has no legs after regular season.

Lebron is afraid to take the last shot of the game. Always calls the screen to force the pass. Instead he just needs to iso, two dribble pull up midrange jumper for the win. Take it in your own hands instead of throw your teammates under the bus after they miss.

Double team was coming too if MJ drives into the post but Michael Jordan doesn’t hesitate to one dribble pull up midrange & win the game on the last shot. Lebron needed to make that Kyrie shot over Curry against Jimmy Butler last night but he’s always “making the right play.”

Was that the Green shot? I don't blame him, dude was wide open, it's the smart play. Green is paid to hit that shot.

LeBron’s legacy is cemented, but he’s not Michael. He has to make the plays that fit his game.

Nobody treated him as a third wheel.
