This whole thing is a joke. The roster was built with no shooters and a bunch of clowns. Beasley is trash. Lance is all about dancing and showboating. Bron is old. He is too heavy and not very limber.. His body will continue to break down. They let Randle walk for nothing. DLo is balling out in Brooklyn. We are stuck with a huge mess and horrible team morale over trying to acquire an injury prone superstar.

Just trade Kuzma for picks to stockpile assets. Rest Lebron the rest of the season and tank it out. Restart again next year with the cap space we have. The playoff picture just got tougher with Kings & Mavs significantly improve, so i don't think we won't win anything.

Wise move will be Fire Luke and make Shaw the interim head coach rest of the way. I also believe Luke is pushing back Lonzo and Ingram. I felt bad, we did have 20-14 record but just downhill ever since.We shall see.

Bad idea to fire Luke. Shaw interim coach for the rest of season is a terrible idea. He never was a good coach everywhere he went. Injuries is what killed the lakers good season, but that goes with the game. You just do not blow up a good young team just because of injuries. In the first place the Lakers were not suppose to be in contention for a title this season anyways. It was suppose to be next season when we would fill the other spot that the Lakers had created with cap space.

Sorry but your idea is terrible. Be patient!

What a turn around this season has been. Went from developing the youngsters to throwing them under the bus. All in the pursuit of nothing. Well unless you want to call signing Reggie Bullock in a mad dash to try make the playoffs as a freaking 8th seed something.

People used to berate the old regime but this clown outfit is worse. What a joke, the Lakers are turning into the clippers of old. A laughing stock of the NBA.

If the tradedeadline pass and we stay as we are right now somebody should loose his job...because if they won't do anything while everybody in the league is making big moves it means that they didn't have any emergency plan...and I'm not even speaking about the joke that this FO turn us to...I mean Atlanta Hawks a Charlotte are laughtin

The saddest part is they gave so little playing time to Svi we don't know whether he is good or not. Likely he is a "P and D" guy -- Practise and D-League guy.

But there is always the possibility he could turn into Klay. I did see a practise tape where he sunk 30 threes in a row. But without playing time, how could you know?

This regime is every bit as bad as Kup/Jimbo.

Heard them say on ESPN on way to work this morning that Wiz probably hold on to Beal, unless they get a offer that blows them away, which I don't think he's worth.

They should offer them multiple picks, the same picks they were ready to offer for AD. Tanking teams prefer picks over players. Throw some players as well to match salaries. Beal is a young promising player(borderline star) who is trapped in a very unfortunate situation in DC. He is the perfect piece this team needs. Forget this big game hunting and do the right thing for your team. Then look at signing DMC in the off season. It can still be fixed but Magic needs to control his emotions and take a vacation for some time. Let Kobe’s ex agent do some damage control.

Jerry West would not of made a difference when it comes to us trying to trade for a big time FA. You think Demps, Spurs or Indiana would of made deals with us if we had West instead? No they would have still done the same stuff that was done regards who was in our FO. West is not our savior.

If our youngs can't get past this then oh well, guys get traded every year and get their names ran through the mud. At least our guys name was in the same sentence as AD. Harrison Barnes got shipped out in the middle a game for nobody. It's not like we were trying to move our guys for nothing like they are a piece of c***.

On the other side we have Boston youngs who names have been connected to AD just as much, but how are they acting? If AD doesn't get traded to us, then it's very likely Boston already committed many of their young to the Pelicans. Tatum even joked one day and said I would trade myself for AD. If they can't get over this and play, then they will probably fold just the same under playoff pressure.

It doesn't make any sense, Lakers don't pull off a trade for AD this summer and we only get Reggie Bullock. But then those same Lakers fans saying that are getting pissed that our FO is trying to trade our youngs. You can have your cake and eat it to.

It wasn't the fact that they were trading the youngsters. It was the fact they were willing to give up ALL of them, take on dead cap AND give draft picks. That was a terrible trade for a player that is only going to depreciate in value. If he still had 3 years plus on his deal then sure.

That's what doesn't make any sense. LBJ, AD and close to $10 mill in dead space because they keep stretching people will not win a championship. Period.

Do you really think free agents are going to come here knowing they are most likely going to be traded once LBJ throws his tantrum?

This was a bad look for the franchise in every single way. Unless you care to name some positives that came out of it.

You to get em AD because that is exactly what they are doing. Good for him. We do not have many defenders in this league. It's good to know that we have at least one.

I was originally against trading for him now, but seeing how the entirety of our team chemistry flew out the **** window over this drama, we may just have to if the opportunity arises. At this point, I'd take the trade just so the doushe bags Celtics will never get the opportunity. That would make me very happy. Of course, we will have to dump our entire squad for him, but at least we will have that.

Magic Johnson should have talked and offered the deal not to GM Dell Demps, who is a disciple of Popovich (who hates the Lakers) but to their owner Gail Benson. He could have sweet talk her more than Popovich's clone.

Worst of all, he leaked all of the Lakers offers to the media to burn bridges between players and management.

If we want payback, screw with the Celtics first by recruiting and signing Kyrie in the summer. If we get him, Boston will not send Tatum for AD, that's a given. Then when the Pelicans call and wants to negotiate, Magic should call Benson and ask for Demps head before enganging in any trade discussions.

Are you saying you are okay with the deal if AD had 3 years on his contract? The guy couldn't be doing any more to show he will resign with us if we traded for him. So what does it matter if he has 3 years left on his deal for us?

LBJ / AD / 10MIL (stretched) = 70 million

Salary cap is expected to be about 108 million, so that would be 38 million to fill out a team. that is a decent chunk of money to fill spots, am I saying we would win, I have no clue but a team could be built.

I guess we will find out this summer if FA will come here this summer, we can argue that back and fourth but won't know till this summer. We do know that AD wanted to come here though.

I would agree there is no positive for us, unless maybe this was a blessing in disguise that we didn't make the deal. But in the NBA you are always a trade asset if you qualify for the following.

  1. You are on the last year of your deal.

  2. You are talented and on a cheap contract.

If you listen to every NBA media person and analyst, they pretty much all agreed that the fair trade value for AD was 3-5 youngs and picks. We the **fans** all seem to think the offer we gave them was way way over the top, but most people in the actual NBA world who do this stuff for a living, didn't think our final offer was ridiculous. So to say our FO was stupid to make such an offer, is coming mostly from fans who just love to watch the game.

To me I don't think it was stupid for them to try and get AD, sure our youngs got their feelings hurt, whatever grow up and collect your check then. Play the game, NBA is a business.

If he had 3 years on his contract the Lakers wouldn't be able to get him any other way. No one is going to wait 3 years.

What he does have is 1.5 with the deadline today. After today he has 1 season. You don't go throwing crazy amounts of assets to trade for him. His value is depreciating!

So I would understand offering all that to them IF he had a longer contract.

Lebron, AD and a $10 mill cap hit is 74.4. throw in Wagner and Bonga they are at $78. Cap holds and they have something like $25 million to bring in 3 starting players and fill out the bench. Good luck with that.

I guarantee that what ever AD ends up being traded for is less than what the Lakers offered this past week.

Trading the whole team for AD is dumb period. To tell me that NBA experts are all saying it was worth trading the whole team for one player does not sound to me like they are much of an expert.

AD is a good player, but he is no super man. How long has he been with the Pelicans? Have they ever won any championships? The answer is hell no.

The move that I thought the Lakers were making when they decided to tank four years ago was to build a team through the draft which they did. Fact some of those players though they are still young have come a long ways and were headed this year to making the playoffs. I thought that the plan was to get two super stars by next season, not this season, but next. We already got LeBron which I was against, but we got him. All the Lakers needed was one more super star without trading any of our young core of players that they had been developing. By next season with the young core that we have and IF we could pick up that super star in free agency, that would make the Lakers the favorite in the NbA.

What has happen now is that Magic under pressure from a lot of fans that do not see the big picture threw all the team under the bus by going all out for AD. He completely forgot about the big picture and the patients to develop young players.

It is not too late. The Lakers found out how much they are hated by other owners and managers and are ganging up on them. So they are not going to do anything that will help the Lakers. Finish the season with the players we have and this summer go after super stars that are free agents and you will see that these young players with just one more super star how good they really are.

AD is not worth giving away what we have. The Celtics are not jumping to trade Tatum plus for AD.

That's the thing Axle, every one keeps saying well the young core are never going to be superstars, well they don't need to be!

LBJ, Kuzma, Ball, Zu and Ingram with another years growth in the off season and whatever they pick in the summer with the cap space is a hell of a lot better than LBJ, AD and fillers.

The problem from the get go was the composition of this year's roster. That is squarely on the FO. Why do people believe they can get the right pieces around LBJ and AD when they couldn't even do it last year.

Ask any "expert" what LeBron needs and the first answer is shooters. Not goons that offer toughness.

The list of great players with no rings is very long, so to say that about AD is doesn't make much sense at all.

The Lakers tried to make this move, because there is a good chance we don't sign another all-star this summer, so this was our chance to ensure we got that 2nd all-star and not just an all-start and MVP caliber player.

You can say what you want, but you find me an NBA analysts that said the trades we offered for AD were bad trade offers? But I bet you can find about 1 million Fans who thought it was just the worst thing in the entire world. So it is the the fans who just watch NBA games that think what we offered is the end of the world.

I am fine either way keeping our young or trading them because they all have the same thing in common, they go on streak of being amazing then die out for a little while. Not a single one has kept their stock up for even half a year. They all fall back down, sure I get it they are young and I do think they are good. But I like a sure thing, that's just me

Do you remember when this whole site was hyped up on Josh Hart? Where has he gone. Kuzma has faded away with no LeBron, come on he has to keep that same level regardless of who is passing you the ball. Ingram has been up and down every other night since he cam into the league. Lonzo the same way as Ingram. Maybe it's Luke, but the potential our guys show, they should not drop off so much and so easily and so often. That Is is exact why I am okay if we traded for a guarantee talent, because these guys are not guarantee all-stars by any means

I think the Celtics will throw in Tatum if AD says he will resign or if Kyrie says he will resign. However I don't think they throw in Tatum with no guarantee from AD or Kyrie

But what if we don't get an all-star this summer? Is this exact team good enough to win next year? Probably no. Let's be real, we are probably like 50/50 on getting another all-start this summer.

    Kwahi - About every report says he is not coming to us.

    DUrant - About every report says he is not coming to us.

    Butler - 76ers are looking good, would he leave a contender for us? We were never on his list to trade (even though we couldn't do a trade anyways).

    Kemba - Jordan must have inside scoop on him staying or they would of at least looked around about trading him.

    Cousins - He probably hates us, we shut the door on him this past summer, why would he sign with us, when we didn't want him?

    Irving - This seems like it has potential given some recent events. Irving is very stubborn, would he really come crawling back to LeBron?

    Klay - Owners already said we will pay the most, he is not leaving a winning team with his best friend.

So finding our 2nd star is not looking good for us this summer, so our FO took it into their own hands to find one in AD.

Here are our most likely targets:

    Tobias Harris

    Khris Middleton

    Nikola Vucevic

Even you don't have faith in LeBron in 2 years from now, what if it comes true and we don't have anther top player to help carry us and keep us going while LeBron is battling injuries and getting to old? Are we back in the same spot we were post Kobe? Maybe?

If you don't get the all Star and you are pretty sure AD is coming you are hoarding cap space. You get to make a decision on Ingram and his future. Or you trade him for an asset.

Which goes back to what I said in the summer. The team did not need LBJ and they shouldn't have signed him. The goal of the season should have been development and seeing what the core can actually do.

You can't jump start rebuilds, young players don't learn from superstars. They learn from experience, play time and getting reps. Not standing in the corner waiting to shoot a 3.

I'd far rather have KL, or Durant this summer over signing LBJ last summer. Because yes I don't have faith in LBJ, time is not on his side.

The franchise tried to build a contender around an aging high mileage superstar not so long ago. Look where it put the franchise. Yet people are saying roll the dice all over again. It just isn't a long term solution. Building a team around LeBron is a very short term fix that most likely doesn't win a ring. Gambling for the sake of gambling instead of waiting for a better hand.

The new rumor is Pelicans never had intent on giving us AD, they just wanted us to make offers that would sabotage our young players by having their names all over the place. Which I believe.

I really hope Paul Rich and AD stick it to NO for this whole situation and basically tell the Celtics, "AD will not play a game for the Celtics next year if you trade me there". NO wants to sit a healthy AD, then a healthy AD can purposely not play for a team he is traded to. That would hurt the NO offer quite a bit if that happened, I would laugh. I feel like AD and Rich Paul are getting close to doing something like that to them next summer.

They get laughed at for their stupidity.

Rich Paul got outplayed by the Pelicans FO, just like the Lakers FO. Spoiled brats that didn't get their way. Boo hoo.

Indicator of a Lonzo hater. Lavar has been quiet all season long, Magic’s full forced efforts to trade our entire roster were made public, Lebron not taking blame for anything going on, nor willing to hold players meetings, and sitting away from the rest of the team, and Lavar opens his mouth once and all of a sudden, THAT’S a distraction. 😂 that’s rich.

On another note, I don’t believe how Zo still has haters league-wide pertaining to his game. There’s people who still think Zo is a bad player when it’s clear he’s the most impactful player in our core. It’s awful that our core has to be introduced to the league through a **** show called the Lakers

LaVar spoke a lot of truths when it came to Luke. This hasn’t been an issue just with Lonzo, he did this with D’Angelo and Randle. I just don’t think Luke is good at developing young players. And when it comes to them looking out of sync, a lot of that is due to him not establishing clear roles and rotations for the players on the team. Bringing guys in at random times even though they haven’t played for weeks, benching guys after they make a mistake even though they played well before (Zubac). It just reeks of a coach that lacks experience and isn’t sure what to do.

I don’t blame him for the blowout to Indiana, as a lot of that was due to the trade rumors. But he’s not blameless here at all. When you ask has he gotten the most out of the players the last few years, I believe the answer is no. And he hasn’t put together a good staff to help him improve and tell him when he’s screwing up. Hence why we keep seeing him make these head scratching decisions over and over and over.

I swear if they sign Melo I'm done for the season. I guarantee there will be people here trying to justify the FO signing him using Per 36 or some other non sense stat. Trying to justify how the FO are in someway competent.

Hearing here in Phx. That Suns want Zo bad but they have nothing Lakers want. Won't give up Booker or they're 1st rd pick this year.

Also saying Suns called Pels about getting in AD trade to get Zo, but Pels want him. Saying it's not so much Pels getting back at Lakers, it's more Lakers don't have players (except Zo) that they value that high or picks.

Just curious of all players traded this year, which should we have gone after and traded a young guy for them? Our Young’s are our only trade chips. So who was it we missed out on that got traded else where?

I'm watching the trade deadline show on the jump. They were saying that the league doesn’t view our core to have any players who have potential star quality. Lol.

Seriously? I just don't understand why Zu was never given a fair shake. Like Tyson Chandler and JaVale are that much better than him?
