I think Magic was under a lot of pressure since he did not do much to get Kawhi. So when the AD thing come into focus, he felt that he could not let an opportunity like that get away from him this time. So he went all out trying to make up for the previous fiasco on the Kawhi trade. But I think he went at it all wrong. The Pelicans saw him coming and they were not about to trade their main star who is still under contract. On a interview with Alvin Gentry he said it right in front of the camera's that AD was not going to the Lakers. He was actually very upset when asked about AD. Magic did not stick to the original plans by the Laker organization and that was to build a team through the draft and see them grow up into a championship team. Get a couple of super stars eventually and mold them into these young talented players which would give the Lakers at least seven year window to get another championship. That is what is good about having young players. They can give the team several years of service. First big mistake was getting LeBron at age 33, now 34 and the window is closing fast on him. So that also has put pressure on Magic to make the dumb moves he was willing to make. The trade was not to be which in my opinion is good for the Lakers. Now they can wait until free agents are available and add some more pieces to the puzzle this summer. I also blame a lot of the fans that do not understand that when a team commits to rebuilding through the....

Noticed you didn't list Zo, Axle. Before he got hurt, he was looking just as good or better than other core. Don't want him retained???

Or are you doing same thing you're blaming other for.

That is what I am talking about. It is barely his second season with the Lakers and look how good he is already doing. Lets be patient and see how good this team can be with kids we got on the draft. Kuzma, Ingram, Ball and Hart. Lakers should build around these four young players. They will be real good by the time they get to the prime age of 24-25 years old.

Too many fans fall in love with these aging players that were super stars like LeBron. But athletes once they hit that magic number 30 it is all down hill, with the exception of very few, like Vince Carter. He is still shooting good, but that is rare to see a player that old that can shoot that good.

If anybody is serious about all star games defense...its a complete joke. Even a granny can play better defense. Tatum is 50% fg and played extra 4 minutes than kuzma who is 55% fg. If you compare the rank these players are drafted, kuzma seems a steal for the lakers. I think there are a lot of overhyped when it come to tatum.

Brian Windhorst says James is playing around 280 lbs because he can’t work on conditioning due to his sore groin. That can’t be good.

That candidness included Davis addressing one of the biggest questions surrounding his future leading up to the NBA's trade deadline: Why weren't the Boston Celtics -- the team almost universally hailed as the one with the most assets to acquire him in a trade -- not on his list?

"They are on my list," Davis said.

Yeah, he said he just wants to win and all 29 teams on list. Great way to stop people asking him over and over again.

Considering all 29 aren't a winning situation. Lol

Speaking on that Allstar game, very predictable that Lebron's team would comeback and win but I was very surprised when Steph bounced a pass to himself and backwards dunked. That and his pass to Giannis was the highlight of the game.

  1. Why exactly did we tank? We had Julius and DLo and they are on their way to being All-Stars on other teams.

  2. We had Brook Lopez and he is gone. We had Lou Williams and let him go. We had Zubac and traded him for a guy not much better than me.

  3. We had Thomas Bryant and he is gone for nada.

  4. Apparently we have a washed up Superstar/GM who will only get worse with time.

  5. This new GM duo is worse than the old GM duo. At least they got us Pau and 2 titles.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?

1st let me say would have loved to see what team could have done with Dlo and Randle on it. But let's be real, Dlo was an all star because players ahead of him got hurt. Nets would be a lottery team in West. Pels are a lottery team with Randle , this team with Dlo and Randle and no superstar would be a lottery team. Imo

Agree with 5. Also with 2 and 3 ,but they weren't going to resign them anyway.

4 dead wrong this year, have to wait and see next 3 years.

I’m hearing that Magic May have found another player to join the Lakes. He seems to be Infatuated with Zack Randolph and believe’s that Zack is the superstar he’s been looking for. He thinks that Zack and LebrOn will deliver a defensive nightmare for opponents. I’m amazed that all our cesarean close to 49 years old
