HOF first ballot  so there's that.


Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

Draymond Green is getting on my nerves. I haven't particularly cared about Paul Pierce until they beat us in 2008; then I flat out disliked him. But who the [expletive] is Green to judge Paul Pierce honestly?

Book will be better if Phil and Jay Mohr get into it over Jeannie once Phil moves in with her

Also, IMHO Phil wanted out and engineered this by shopping Zinger.

 

Probably the best scenario he came up with when he decided he no longer wanted to be there.

 

And after the melo rift didnt do the trick he went to plan B, Porzingis (the nuclear option)

Until you realize he's had a 25 year run

bought the team for around 85-90 million.

Now worth north of 2 billion

its competing at highest levels, but no guarantee CP3 re-signs

along with a market top?? I think assets (RE, Stocks, Sports teams etc) are too high currently...

 

Only way this ends up badly is if its sold before an unexpected championship next year.

And he'd still walk away with $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

 

Alexander has done that franchise and city proud.

2 championships on top of that along with some former and future HOF'ers

 

Not bad.

Not the Lakers. Or Celtics. Or Spurs. Or Bulls. Or Heat.

But 6th best franchise id argue

 

(Some are gonna wanna move the Warriors up this list, but they had a 40 year championship drought and were pretty bad as recently as 5 seasons ago)

Got to meet Russell Westbrook today while on a test drive on a new Genesis G80 at Garden Grove Hyundai. He owns several Hyundai dealers in Orange County. Shook his hand and asked him about being a Laker. His response...'awwe [expletive] no'.

Traitor!

Still got mine, just passed 130k.

 

(Always loved the Genesis sedan line. Good luck if you pull trigger)

Has anyone seen Fultz shoot free throws ? It is scary bad. Look away if you're watching.

You'be been warned.

CP3 and Harden wrecking.

Hate to pick at old wounds but God damn the league so lucky that CP3 trade was vetoed. I cry inside whenever I think of the havok prime CP3 and MVP Kobe would've caused...

Cp3
Kobe

Kobe would’ve had 7 rings probably and would have been way more efficient.. think Kobe. Beginning of Achilles season. [expletive] Cuban and cavs and stern
