Did he not know those teams would be in the association when he told other in 2018 he was coming to our crappy team? Unless Ball is an all star next year we are set to be doomed until 2025 by your estimation. 

Not necessarily.  I actually think Cousins is an easier get/sell and that the Pelicans have a better chance of 'disappointing him' than OKC does with George.   Especially considering they just went out and maxed Jrue Holiday after being what I felt was a piece away (which is why I was nervous they'd get CP3, but they just re-signed Jrue instead with all that money).  

That and Cousins close relationship with Randle could also play a factor in it too.   I personally think our target should be Cousins, particularly if the Pelicans don't make it happen again this year as I personally don't think Anthony Davis's career isn't going anywhere till he leaves the Pelicans.

But that's neither here nor there right now.

You had me till you said we should sign cousins. It's okay you've made great progress in this heel run you got going. We need to keep cousins out, he's a head case who's shown he can't be controlled. Maybe... if he was coming off a year without tantrums. If he can't keep it together in a contract year he isn't worth the risk IMO. He's a great player but not worth the risk IMO. We need that perfect fit, like the Pau move. I'm not even sure who that player is. After the kids games have matured more we'll know better. Does that make sense?

Well we're gonna need someone to help drown out Lavar.

 

I think Cousins does everything Lopez does but better. Probably played for more coaches than almost anyone in league. And his game has improved to what should be All NBA level.

 

(Gobert made 2nd team? What?)

 

Not sure if Lakers get one max guy next season let alone 2, but we're going to need a center (as Zu wont get as many minutes now to improve enough with Brook).

 

If PG still comes over (and if i were him i wouldnt unless RW leaves) and we could have our choice of anyone, Boogie would be Ok.

 

Not LBJ ok, but a solid win in free agency and a reason to be hopeful again.

 

This season will suck balls

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!!!

IMO Boogie should Boogie on down the road, has been a head case and I don't see him holding a trophy.

Has there been any interview, introduction, anything from PG since he was traded? Can't find anything.

Even though it's only like 3% chance but if we could land Westbrook and George that would be great

Ball
Westbrook/hart
George
Ingram
Zu

^ Doesn't look that good. Better in the OKC orange jerseys.
