Man the Clippers gave up top notch assets for PG,

2022 1st round unprotected pick (Clippers)

2024 1st round unprotected pick (Clippers)

2026 1st round unprotected pick (Clippers)

2021 1st round unprotected pick (Miami)

2023 1st round protected(1-14) pick (Miami)

2 pick swaps (2023 and 2025)

Gallinari

Sha Gilgeous

Also I'd be pissed if I was Westbrook and OKC, Kawhi reaching out to a player signed on another team to convince him to demand a trade and join him, that's a b**** move right there, lost a little respect for KL on that move.

I still like our team better then Clippers. We sign Danny Green and KCP

WTF????? After all that KL goes to Clips? Which was rumored to be his preferred destination for months? That's why he took so long, coz he was trying to pry another top player to leave his team to join him? WTF???? PG goes with him and leaves OKC, after saying he was happy there? WTF?????????!!!!!!!

Nuts... honestly the league should not let player force trades. Its ******** to give these guys so much power... Paul George should be fined for tampering.

It took him so long because he wanted a 2nd star with him in LA and it took a long time for Clippers to get PG traded to them. If it wasn't for the PG trade Kawhi would not be a Clippers. He knew he needed a 2nd star in this league to win. He never wanted to join and create a mega super team with Lebron and AD, but he would have if he didn't get PG to Clippers

I'm just glad it's finally over. We will just have to beat Kawhi, PG, and the Clippers. We added Green, Pope, and, McGee plus others we signed. Kawhi will learn to regret his choice. When we win multiple championships, he will be regretting this decision. Lakers will dominate the Clippers. We have Anthony Davis man. Kawhi is injury prone and the Raprtors had players that took him tio the championship. He wasnt even the MVP in my eyes. We will see which L.A. team wins. I love it. Time to battle. Let's go.

$16Mil for 2 years for KCP. No one else in the NBA would pay him that money. Overpaying again for a player who has zero leverage in the league. Dumb.

McGee coming back on the other hand .2 years for $8.2 mill (total).

If they don't get Cousins, which they should, then all that's left is Rondo, maybe Korver, Justin Holiday, Caruso, and some G League players. Unless they can deal for Iggy. Which seems rather unlikely.

I'm not afraid of Kawhi an PG. Let's see them try and score in the paint against AD. See if they can stop LeBron and AD. I am actually happy it went down this way. How awesome would it really be if we had all three and won a championship? People would say it was unfair and not legit. We would get no love. Now we have a chance to have a team to be proud of when we win it all. I think PG and Kawhi played us all along so we couldn't sign top tier players. It's going to backfire on them and they will end up regretting it. I'm fired up. Let's do this......

Don't forget PG has shoulder issues that plagued him the last 2 seasons in the playoffs. Won't take much to derail the Clips atm. We shall see. But we need Cousins.

Never underestimate The Logo. We should of had Kawhi. I think we'll be great but we could have had the superteam for the ages.

The Lakers did their very best. I'm not even mad. Even with the logo, Rob and Jeanie held their ground. We got Lebron & AD, make room for cap space for Kawhi & were close on forming a big 3. Important part was weve secured free agents to play with us as a Plan B. Mcgee,Pope,Green. Hoping for some more. Clips have given up so kany assets and are in max now. It was either way. Clips couldve had Lebron & AD. Ours have PG or Leonard if we’d traded them in the first place.

To widen the perspective, if Kawhi comes here we have no depth with no money left. We still have to keep our eyes open as we could get Iggy ,Morris or Avery Bradley. We ain’t done yet.

I'm sorry, but Kawhi Leonard is a piece of s***. He held this team hostage knowing full well he had no intention to sign with us. To be completely honest with you, I thought for sure he would resign with the Raptors. The Clippers were an obvious shock. He was clearly just waiting for the Clippers to find him another star to play with. I hope he is booed at every single Laker game.

The team in its current form does not look better than the Clippers in my opinion. Our first moves after the Kawhi decision are KCP, McGee, and Green? Not impressed. Why the f*** are we not signing Cousins?

Clippers gonna win the title for once. Kawhi is an absolute beast. You guys lost respect for him. I gained respect for him. What a boss move. Plus he’s brilliant, he didn’t say get me a Kyrie type player. He wanted the next best 2-way hard playing wing in George. Smart. They also have a better coach, the BEST 6th man in the league and, IMO, the only better defender than Kawhi in Patrick Beverly. The might need some more depth, but they took the Warriors to 6 games without either Kawhi or PG. They’re gonna be legit!

What a troll. Perhaps get out of this site for being an alleged clippers fan. Youve just been added to my Ignore list. Youve posted too much negativity on the site & should warn the moderators for your negative behaviour. This is a lakers fan page not an “anti laker fan page” , who i believed should share their good & bad opinions of the team.

Too much emotion boiling over you just because Lebron is on the team. Thats a year off brother and u should move on and enjoy this team. We dont need a toxic mindset here.

Peace out

Dude. Cousins havent had a market for a while now. He sucks now and we could use that roster space for a young & serviceable role player like Morris perhaps.

Man that clippers backcourt is gonna be insane defensively though. Beverly, PG Kawhi??? All of them have been in the running or have won defensive player of the year awards. I could see cousins now going there too to bolster their front court lol

I was shocked PG actually wanted to stay and play with him last year. Westbrook is like the typical woman. When your dating them they are the exact girl you want and then you marry them and their true sides come out. Lol

Haha my bad man, no worries I am still a laker fan through in through until I die. But looking around the league there are a lot of tough teams. These front offices did a really good job at building teams. This is the first year that I can’t narrow it down to only 4 teams being contenders its a lot more than that this year.

There is no doubt about it, that team is going go be sick. This whole thing has made me despise the Clippers more and I can't wait to see all the bandwagon Clippers fans just randomly show up. Probably wasn't a earthquake we felt last night. It was the bandwagon Clippers fans returning from Golden State.

The Clippers became the last line of defense for the balance of power in the NBA. Exactly my point. Why was that their responsibility? The last line of defense? Coz they were the only team with enough cap room to do it. This offseason was conspiratorial. At all costs, keep top players (FA) out of LA Lakers. Like GS was even part of it taking on DLo for big money he wasn't worth. That was a strange and punk azz move. And most assume he will be traded out when Thompson comes back. Another "keep him away from the....

What a loser mentality you have. Because I have another team credit for the first time ever on this site, deserved credit I might add, I’m a troll and a fan of their team? Perhaps you should leave the site with that ridiculously biased attitude you have. There’s not a rule for being negative genius. By the way, I dealt with everyone’s negativity on here for years and didn’t cry about it like you. The Mods should probably look at you with you personal attacks and name calling because someone has a smarter opinion than you do. Feel free to stop coming on the site or actually do what you said and add me to your ignore list, then I can do without your lame azz responses. Thanks.

Baad must be so conflicted right now. Lol just messing bro

Leonard doesn't know what he is getting in to with Doc and his constant b1tching. I'm Not worried about the clippers in the slightest.

PG has gone missing the last 2 playoffs and Leonard needs his load management in the brutal west. I'm pretty confident of going all the way this year.

Clips really do have a curse on them. Something bad will happen and they won't get past the second round.

If Cousins can become Cousins again, this is a phenominal team.

Nets: don't underestimate the danger of an Achilles. Look at how long Cousins is taking and he is younger.

Probably most mad at the fact Kawhi had us waiting for a PG trade and not for a decision. It all adds up. Woj said he would have signed with us if they couldn’t swing a trade by noon today when the AD trade goes down. There’s something extra crummy about making a team pass on all of the potential star level assets, but in the end their fate depends on another team, their rivals at that. I hope all the hell on Kawhi and Paul George in our matchups

Haha nothing wrong with telling the truth of how good a team is gonna be. The entire league is the most balanced I have ever seen. Typically I can narrow down to 4 teams who could win the championship. Now I can’t narrow it down below 8 or more teams that have a legit chance.

I'm not one to attempt to control content and I could care less what you write on here. There is, on the other hand, a site just like this one for the Clippers if you want to stroke them off. Just a thought. 😀

We all get it. That team is going to be sick.

You have to give props to the Clippers. Jerry West worked his magic and gave the clippers a championship favorite team. LA is one hell of a sports city now, the NBA is balanced, and I am all for it.

You do realize that part of having conversations on this site is to evaluate where we fall in line out of the top teams. Who is going to be tough matchup who has advantages over us, where we have an advantage on them. That’s kinda the point of this page. So I guess if you don’t like that aspect of it you can just ignore these comments that the rest of us like to discuss. Just because you talk about other teams and good additions they have made don’t make any of us less fans. I am a basketball fan first and foremost and the team I choose as my team is the lakers but I still love watching other teams play and respect their games. If your not ok with that then maybe don’t come on the site? Just a thought.
