if we get lebron kahwi and pg we are going in WIN NOW MODE.
but if we are giving up kuz and ingram, WIN FUTURE is over
PG is 28.
Kawhi is 27.
KD - 29
Steph - 29
Klay - 27
Draymond - 27
First, please explain what YOU mean by "FUTURE". 2 years from now? 5? 10?
Second, please explain why we wouldn't be able to win in the future while GSW is considered a Dynasty for the foreseeable future? I didn't even add in LeBron who could play at an elite level for the next 3-4 years with Kawhi and Paul George as his "sidekicks". People seem to forget that Jordan had Pippen to do a lot of the dirty work that allowed Jordan to be the best. He didn't even make it to the NBA Finals by himself.
I bet on LeBron finding a way to beat GSW with Kawhi and Paul George. LeBron beat GSW (w/o KD) with Kyrie and Kevin Love! Kawhi is much better than Kyrie and PG13 is MUCH better than K-Love. Defensively, the comparison isn't even close.
Win a few Ch'ips in this DECADE and winning in the future will take care of itself. Ask every player in the NBA Draft when was the last year the Lakers made it to the WCF. I'd be surprised if you find 5 players who knew the answer to that. Why?
Those guys were in middle school or even elementary school the last time the Lakers were legit contenders.
