Have to say I agree 100%.
Only whiny, spoiled, overly-priviledged LAKERS FANS would complain about HOW we win. Most teams would KILL to have a CHANCE to sign LeBron and PG13 this summer but noooooo....we have people here complaining about 4 guys who have been in the league a combined <10 years and how WINNING with LeBron will affect them?!!!
It's sad we have to go through this. Should be a no-brainer but instead, people are choosing to NOT use their brain and think with their HEARTS.
Lakers still have that huge TV deal with TWC/Spectrum...BILLIONS of dollars and their own channel. Magic and Jeanie know that they need stars. They aren't going to listen to the bleeding hearts that don't want LeBron because that would not make basketball or business sense.
Even if LeBron and PG13 don't beat GSW, they will win a lot of ball games, make BILLIONS in marketing/ad revenue and make LA a PRIME Free Agent Destination again. It's the first step in making this Franchise relevant again and not a laughingstock.
The Lakers still have guys developing who will be able to take over in 3-5 years...Ball will be 25, Ingram 25, Kuzma 27, Randle 28...near their primes with Ball and Ingram still about 2 years away from their primes...
As long as we don't trade away our youth to get LeBron and PG13, it's almost guaranteed that we will try to sign them this summer. No LOGICAL reason we shouldn't.
Can't agree with this more.
When we got Shaq, he was already one of the 50 greatest players ever as named by the NBA. We combined him, with our YOUNG TALENT (Kobe) and won 3 championships. I don't hear anyone complaining about that being unorganic.
If we get LBJ and PG -- two GREATS -- and combine them with our YOUNG TALENT (Ball, Ingram, Kuzma, Randle), why is that a problem? Doing that will make us COMPETITIVE again. That's huge.
