THT was off the table for Lowry but he's available for Westbrook? Really? These are all reports, but if its true at all, Pelinka needs to be fired.

Why does Rob Pelinka think he’s building a team for 1981 and not 2021? Dude has refused to sign shooters for three years now when everyone knows how great LeBron is with spacing.

Pelinka needs to be fired before he can do this trade.

Did you watch the Finals? The team with exterior finesse & shooting got beat by a team that trotted out a huge lineup and dominated inside. Lakers bullied teams inside on their way to 2020 title, too.

I still don't see the Lakers giving up all 3 of Kuzma, Schroder and THT for anyone outside of Dame or Steph (which also isn't happening). A S&T for Schroder + Kuzma + this year's FRP is the best package anyone is getting. I believe Caruso & THT are also borderline-untouchable not because they're so great but because Lakers need them badly for depth & fit purposes.

They can do that with LeBron and AD already? They need spacing, not Westbrick

Congrats on beating the Suns, but thats the exception. They also almost lost to a broken BRK team, making them, one of the worst defenses in the league, look competent by just ignoring non-Middleton shooters and packing the paint. That series was for more difficult than it needed to be, specifically because the Bucks couldnt shoot

It's not every year youre gonna get through the CF/Finals where the best player you face is Chris Paul or Trae Young

They need another bowling ball to get into the lane and create ball movement, to take the load off from LeBron (who's basically the only guy left on the team to do this once Schroder is gone). Russell is one of the best at this in the league.

Didn’t watch a second of the finals actually. But the Bucks had the 4th best three point percentage during the regular season at 38.9%, better than the Suns. The Bucks had shooting too. Westbrook isn’t exactly Giannis. He’s not a 7 footer who dominates inside. He’s a 6’3 point guard with diminishing athleticism who shoots 32% from 3 and 66% from the free throw line. He’d be an absolutely terrible addition to this team.

It shows quite evidently.

Bucks shot 35% from 3 for the series and won the championship.

Guaranteed starting job and can likely shoot the ball as often as he wants…I’m thinking Beal may want out if this occurs but not sure if he even deals with Westbrook that much anyway.
