Love got traded to the Cavs and will be a free agent at the end of the season.

 

Not much different than Dwight, in some regards, except Dwight got traded to a great organization in a great city, and took a step back on both fronts when he left.  (That said, he went to a better team.)

 

Love grew up in LA, played several years in the frozen tundra and then got traded to Cleveland.  Not exactly glamour spots.

 

Can't blame him for at least trying to find out if California has an opening for him after this season.

 

If I was rich, and could live anywhere in the US, I'm pretty sure I would choose Los Angeles.   It's wonderful.  Especially for the wealthy people.

Yeah La is a big place. But when you have the cash, you can live like a king anywhere, car, house, etc... <br /><br />What I don't like about Kevin is the kind of character he has, sure he is an all-star but I still have that but with him. <br />Who can tell us he won't jump ship if he comes here and things go south?

^^^ There is very few players that you can say for sure they wont jump ship when things go south. Hell Lebron was the son of Ohio and left Cleavland because he didnt like things. However, if he wanted to come to the lakers would you say no because his character certainly shows someone who bolts when things look bleek both in CLE and MIA. The answer would be no because of their talent and same goes with Love. Also you have to have faith in the organization to put a team together to win around love.

 

Dwight left when we had MDA as coach and the guy who was suppose to be running our offense (nash) was no more a bench warmer due to injuries. Mix them together on top of Dwights mindset of course he bolted to a more talented team. Kobe is one of the few players we have seen this generation stick it out with a team when they sucked and even then he had his own doubts. Getting great players is not the only mission a team has it also has to put a team around these players to give them a shot to win. Sometimes that isnt possible and things go south but that doesnt mean you should be gun shy if you have a shot at a top talent player. Worry about keeping him after you got him. I mean if love comes here hes most likely wont be on a short deal like Dwight (unless he wants to waits until kobe comes off the books and salary cap rises which is possible) Even with that a year after we would supposedly get love we would have most contracts off the books and a hella lot of cap space to throw at players.

weak mentality? you realize what team he was on for years before the cavs?

because he said he wanted to play with LBJ in Cavs. But now after a little turmoil he wants to leave the team (if the reports are actually true). Thats some weak [expletive].

I don't really think the Lakers can be picky as some fans and turn away Love. If he wants to come for whatever reason, you pay him. No other big name free agent has really shown much interest in the Lakers since Dwight left. I won't count Melo, I don't think he ever seriously considered LA over NY and Chicago.

He's not leaving. They already have a handshake. You can't break that bond.

After he saw what a mess the Lakers is, I'm not surprised he denied it. Only the brave is willing to step into the world of Jim Buss


MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.

I expected Love to admit it was true and that he hated Cleveland & wanted out.
