We have about a 3-4 year window to build up a team that’s when the lakers dynasty should be dying down

He didn't really start to slow down, he was averaging 27 ppg on some of the best efficiency of his career before he ruptured his Achilles and was done

I doubt that the Lakers will experience a dynasty. This scenario could be very similar to the time when everyone thought that the Lakers were going to be an elite team after they acquired Dwight Howard.

It is very possible that an injury could slow down Lebron's career at his age.

I mean, yeah, he's gonna slow down eventually. Really already has, his offensive numbers are still great but his defense is atrocious now

I was just saying, Kobe didn't start to slow down, he was great, then he got injured and sucked. Was pretty quick, not how guys normally regress

Cp3 routine is elite as well

Will he? Because in the 16 years he's been in the league, only thing that slowed him down was a groin injury.

I can see him playing till he is 40. He's a freak

Kemba, Kuzma, LeBron, Davis. They are winning the West.

They still have 28-32 million for a free agent. Could be Walker or someone else.

Easy trade to pull the trigger on if your the Lakers. Other than the #4, the other 2 first will be late first. Hart, Ingram, and Ball are not good prospects.

Have to give it to the Lakers FO. Keeping Kuzma, they held onto their most prized asset. They were 100% ok with parting with Ball and Ingram.

Only the Lakers could get away with trading "prospects" that are injury prone or bring massive daddy issues lol

It was unprofessional how LeBron conducted himself last year. But it was a freebie year. He will comeback 10 times more motivated this year

Have to wonder if the recent events change Houston’s decision on trading everyone not named Harden. GS looks vulnerable for a while and Lakers will need some time to gel. Might be Houston’s final window with CP3 to get to the finish line.

So pencil them into the playoffs.

The West is a buzz saw.

At least this might help out that DAL pick By potentially taking a playoff spot in 2021

That seems like a decent trade for the Pelicans. Not even Lebron can beat Father Time. Thats a melo haul and AD hasnt done squat by himself. Im glad we dint give all that. Thats a short window for so many picks.

I'll laugh if the Pelicans turn those picks and Zion into a better team.

They won't

History shows that Zion will likely request a trade in 7 years.
