I don't think they will be able to offer the full max, btw... Unless they dump more players, the best they'll have will be like 27 mils. With the Davis trade happening 6th of july, they'll have 21.7 mils I think.
27 is what they have if Davis waives his trade kicker. 23 if not. As others have said, not enough for a max guy. Even if they get a Kyrie or Kemba (who would leave a lot of money on the table) there’s nothing but vet minimums to fill out the roster. Everyone wants to anoint them but there’s not any logic behind it.
Actually even without another max slot as smitty has pointed out 40% of the nba players are free agents this summer and there’s not enough available cap space to pay them all or over pay and it’s a great off season to find bargain role players.
Add in the fact that it’s LeBron James who just teamed up with AD whose arguably the best superstar he’s ever had next to him at minimum in terms of potential and it’s hollywood they’ll fill out the roster just fine.
It’s one thing to hate the lakers and root against them- I do that all the time and love it but there’s also being realistic. The injuries to the warriors has opened the entire league and created a clear path to the nba finals for the lakers. It’s not annointing to them, it’s being honest.
Baring injury it will be lakers vs whoever comes out the east in the finals
Wouldn’t put that in the books just yet. Lebron is getting older. I am also not ruling out Houston, kawahi with the clips, and Portland.
