Cap will be lower next year making it totally impossible no matter what Lakers do. Unless they trade LeBron and AD.

no you dont, cp3 was having a good series in that wcf, its arguable Hou couldve beaten gsw had he not gotten hurt, if lakers could keep bradley, kuz and caruso, gsw wouldnt stand a chance against Lakers

Of course it's arguable. But he got hurt. And Houston lost. Move on.

But that's another topic. Laker fans don't want CP3?

ill take him if we can hold onto bradley, caruso n kuz....we can find some cheap ring chasers to replace green/kcp....gsw would get recked against a cp3/james/ad linep

Well, I disagree that GS would get rekt. But hopefully you guys do trade for him somehow and we get to see these teams play next year.

Lakers give large contracts 1yr 2nd TO to Rondo and KCP add that to Green Exp plus Kuzma you can get CP3 at the deadline.

CP3 and Lebron would sign for exemptions IMO to allow for another star in 2021. Then max deals 2022.

Especially if they don't defend the title.
Lakers are that rich.

gsw has no 1 to handle james nor ad anymore, Green could barely check ad back in 18', cp3 would make this offense that much more potent

Like I said though, I want you guys to trade for CP3. We're on the same page here.

Pre KD Green and Warriors were 17-3 vs AD.
Warriors also have winning record pre KD to Lebron in Curry era.

Maybe Warriors use TPE to get Iguadalla they then have a match up with Lebron plus Wiggins who is athletic enough to try.

Maybe Warriors trade down with Knicks get
C Robinson Plus the draft another wing at 8 like Okoru or Vasell.

Maybe they get D12 for MLE

It's a long off season

CP3 is a great player but he can't replace six guys. Would be year 1 Miami again with stiff bodies for role players.

See Lakers resign KCP Rondo with big 1&1 contracts to potentially trade for big deal like Rondo.

OKC might take that if the Warriors offered both their lottery picks, but the question is does that make the Warriors any better? Their problem is they can't grab a rebound or stop anybody with size, CP3 ain't gonna help with that.
