I see Klay being the first to leave of the 4 also


  • UKUGA and MaceWindu like this

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!!!

The only reason I dont want Lebron is mainly b/c I want this team to have it's own legacy and for the young guys to grow into something hopefully.  Lebron can help them become a contender but at this stage of his career he'll always feel like a "hired hand" instead of our guy.  As a fan of the TEAM that matters.  Paul George is still young enough and doesnt have a legacy that can overshadow everything else going on.  There are also guys on this team that could be more popular than him.  No one is ever going overshadow Lebron until he retires.  I just dont want that circus here at his age.  I want something new and organic.  

 

I agree with you about the difference between PG and LBJ.  PG is still young enough and hasn't accomplished enough that he'd still be joining the team as a part of the team whereas with LBJ it's all about him and his legacy and the team is secondary.  The age factor as well.  Sooner or later his production is going to fall off or god forbid he gets injured and I prefer if that didn't happen while he's in a Laker uniform.  Already went through that with Kobe.  Gotta hope that if he comes here he stays relatively healthy and gives us a few great years.  Gonna be 34 next season.

TBH I dont want LeBron

I just dont want him in a lakers jersey, cause to me that is just ehh.. wrong in a way.. He is not a true champion for me. He needed help and he always needs help.


Oh yeah kobe did that [expletive] all alone

The thing about klay is he’s going to end up with 4 rings by the time his contract is up. Yet by the end of that run who will people be talking about?

Curry first, Durant second, draymond third, Kerr fourth and then klay

But hey maybe he’s content with his nice contract and rings. Maybe he doesn’t need the spotlight. Also I can’t help but wonder if Durant pulls a lebron and goes back to okc

That’s the one I’m not sure on. But let’s just say for a moment that the thunder don’t resign Paul George

Does Durant in 2019 say bye to GS and hello to okc

Not sure. It’s all a very strange scenario to me lol. If Durant goes to okc then I can see klay staying in GS on a massive contract

Klay won't leave. The Warriors make enough money to handle the tax, trust me. They're the 3rd most valuable team right now ever since they got good, and they have a fairly large market to take advantage of.

 

Klay would rather be remembered as a 4x champion than a Reggie Miller.

If we want Klay, it would probably be better to try to get him this summer.  If KD wants a big payday and the Warriors feel like Klay is superfluous, they may be willing to move him.

I would love klay. It’s who Devin booker is trying to be basically, but better defensively and more efficient

Could be but they could trade Draymond instead.  KD can do a lot of what he does. 

 

I see Klay being the first to leave of the 4 also

Clarkson is wearing #8 and Nance is wearing #24 in Cleveland, coincidence?

I understand your reasoning but I don't see it.  KD can do everything Klay does also but there's only player on that team that anchors the defense and is willing to do all of the dirty work all of the time.  If I were GSW, I would trade Klay and keep Draymond...but that's just my opinion.
