It seems to me like there is this notion that for some reason Lebron will just look at Pat Riley, one of the most respected basketball minds in the NBA and say "screw you, im out of here" and become a Lakers. Then there is this notion that for some reason Melo will be moving away from practically his home town and his wive's Lala home town and start moving to the west coast just because he have a nice dinner with KB24. And there is also this crazy notion that Melo and Lebron will join forces and become a Lakers. Believe it or not but the optimistic views of some lakers fans can be very comical to me. Then there is another view that some how Indiana will just let Paul George leave without giving him the key to the city. To be honest, I actually think Paul might have a better chance of becoming a lakers than some fans who still believe Lebron will be a laker. Mainly because LA is PG home town.
but lets say none of that happens. Melo stays, Lebron stays, George stays. Or Melo and Lebron team up in NYC. What will be the Lakers plan B if we get none of those players? How great of a free agency class is it really? Getting Wade? really? Tanking the season so we can get Wiggins? You dont think people will call conspiracy theory if the Lakers some how get the first pick in the lottery? I think we need to be more realistic of the situation instead of having pipe dreams. Lakers probably wont tank the season and get a lottery pick. And even if they are in the lottery, I dont remember the last time they have the number one pick since Magic Johnson or was it Worthy? anyway, I wondered if the Lakers have a plan B.
