I think there is a big chance. Every big player at lakers won a chip. Big excpections with warriors around. His legacy takes a hit. If he brings this franchise to finals at this point it looks better. KP is 20 +10 player in 18/19 and this is a destination to lure klay thompson, unhappy fourth violine or somebody..

"I could see him going to New York before L.A.," Clippers forward Blake Griffin said on the "View From The Cheap Seats" podcast, per Complex. "I still think, when you go to the Garden, it's a completely different feeling. The energy, there seems like there's just a consistent buzz the entire game…even last year when you go play them, it's still there."

That buzz is from residual THC in the locker room left over from JR Smith's days.

I'm not saying I expect it to happen but to say you would rather rebuild than have that team is foolish. That's legitimately a finals winner/contender. Given the option I take that team over any bullchit rebuild line-up people post here daily.

blake's felt that way since before he got drafted. of course, there was no way in hell he would have bailed on the clippers with all the money they threw at him...

So was the wedding nice? Did anybody show from the groom's side?

Also, is his foot bigger than an NBA center's foot? Nike wants to know.

If the Knicks were paying me $12M a year to sit by the lake with my feet up, I'd put whatever the hell I wanted on my twitter bio.

We can laugh at Phil, but he robbed Dolan blind. Maybe that's his best accomplishment as president.

Larry Brown and Phil made a lot of green (no pun intended) in their short tenures here.

Tell me something, if the Knicks don't rebuild how far do you think they'll go? Not on their best day would they be good enough to get to the second round. For now, the league belongs to the Warriors and Cavs. But in 3-4 yrs who knows. So plan NOW, grow assets, and get stronger, younger deeper so when that day arrives the Knicks are an actual threat and not a desperate team doomed to rebuild every 3 yrs.

OJ Mayo still serving another season to his 2-year substance abuse ban, regrets what he did and hopes he can return to the Bucks. Don't worry the Knicks will overpay for this clown who is destined for the Chinese league.

But first he must shed his Eddy Curry weight.

For Lakers, instead of #2 pick they will have to get #3 from now on.
Greenie: Disagree. I think Tatum is going to be better than KP. I don't know about DSjr.

I'm officially calling bluff on Westbrook's fake hustle loyalty. He's a turncoat. Won't sign that extension. To me, he's the epitome of just a bitch, as was evident when his best chance at success made a smart, grown-up decision in his life.
