Dude, NO may try to sell AD on pairing up with Zion. They could be this generations Duncan and Robinson

Welp, those 10 minutes were about the most excitement I've felt as a Lakers fan since our last championship.

They should’ve but the camera on him soon as Knicks came out at #3, lose lose for him with Memphis and NO.

Anyway, for our FA goals, glad to see NY out of the top 2.

#4, Ingram, Hart for AD. Let NO start over with Zion and another top pick.

Of course we all want to win the lottery but this is actually a really good result for us. The Knicks didn't win, which makes them a lot less attractive for FA or an Anthony Davis trade.

Will we trade number four and one of the core for an allstar?

pick 4 is such a huge get. That's a great piece for the team or trade piece.

Now that we have the 4th pick, had anyone looked at our cap space to see if we still have max for Kawhi?

:o




pretty sure we are gonna get AD.


as good as zion is, i don't think this changes AD's mind. A 19 year old isn't going to do much for AD's decision, no matter how good. If anything, this is going to make NO more willing to take the best offers the Lakers give and go all in with youth. Boston will be out of the running if Kyrie signs elsewhere (and they were already not really in the running in AD's eyes). NY's pick is better than ours, but the Knicks don't have the "trade Zion for AD" option anymore




#4 BI Kuz for AD (no need to include Zo now)

Lakers build around Lebron, AD, Lonzo and whoever else we can get, with Hart & Wagner still on board.


Pelican get Zion and another top 4 pick, along with B.I and Kuz.


Knicks get Kyrie KD and have a large collection of young players/assets, along with the third pick to get a third start.



Boston gets screwed.

Who can we get for number 4? Would you guys consider drafting Bol Bol?
