I know what it is. Masai Ujiri set his INTENTIONS. I think we were all humbled watching the Raptors end the Warriors Dynasty.

The Game of Thrones finale sucked. The NBA FINALE?

LA is targeting Kemba Walker? Say they get him - Kemba/vetmin/Lebron/Kuzma/Davis - no picks - capped out - that’s not a championship team

Lebron has been to so many finals his body is going to start to break down repeatedly.
You saw what happened to the warriors. It's too much of a grind.

We lost out on the only franchise asset that got traded.

Kwahi was another but he will eave the Raptors.

Butler most likely will leave phillie.

You wish. Butler wants the max, and we are giving it to him. Same with Harris. I think you guys were right to hold onto your assets and not sell the farm. But make no bones about it, our starting five will be back and it’s gonna be a bloodbath in the Atlantic. Forget the East, the Atlantic is going to be rediculously competitive. Good luck in the offseason

Apparently the Lakers could "only" get up to 27.8 million in cap room if AD waived his 4 million trade bonus which he reportedly wont atm.

If he does not then they could have 23.5 million. That is alot less than the max for 7-9 year players and 10+ year players. They might go after B level FA then. Think Harris, Butler, and C level, Cousins etc.

Just saw that, love it. The only way this deal doesn't ruin them is if they somehow get Kawhi to sign for 23 million.. given what sh*tbaggery they get away with, you can't rule it out until it doesn't happen.

I always expected Kyrie would find his way to LA ( I thought monetarily they could ) even before AD. I think he’s still a great fit and would be heavy favorites. If not I thought Butler made the most sense . I figured he could carry them more in the regular season and save Lebron to be fresher come playoff time.

It’s sickening to watch the Lakers organization make terrible move after terrible move and then get gifted with Lebron and Davis just because of NBA culture. LA sucks in so many ways - a really horrible place to live and yet the geography seems to matter more than anything for NBA.

I still think Lebron-Davis pairing is doomed to fail long term because that team is so badly managed. They might pull off a title this year however with GS down and out. In 2 years they will be the Pelicans.

What kind of garbage is this? Why is LeBron calling fellow players. Isn’t that the job of the actual organization?

Shams :

Phoenix Suns

The Suns have discussed forwards T.J. Warren and Josh Jackson in several separate trade packages, as well as the No. 6 pick, league sources said.

Suns getting aggressive for a stud PG? Who would be available? If Raptors lose Kawhi, Lowry could be on block. I like TJ Warren hes basically a better version of what Morris was for us but again not sure we can add him

On first read, I read "vetmin" as "vermin." Definitely not a championship team. :)
