I'm a Laker fan! The reality is that Danny Ainge doesn't care about any of his future picks as players, he's gonna throw most, if not all the picks plus a few players for Anthony Davis. He's probably planned this for a while and Boston will win the Davis bid. Even without Davis the Lakers can create a championship team literally for the start of next season without even losing anything. Lakers can go the Bradley Beal approach and give up on Ingram, KCP, 1st Rnd pick. In free agency, if Cousins is back to healthy, Lakers should offer good contract for his services. Lonzo, Beal, Bron, Kuzma, Cousins with bench of free agents (rondo, stephenson, maybe jeff green) plus youngsters of Hart, Zubac, Wagner and Myk! Sounds like a championship team right there and highly possible! There's always different ways to get back to the top!

Ingratiate is Steven A. Smith favorite word but he’s right keep Kuzma trade Zo he can’t shoot and once he gets to the hole he’ll miss or pass it...great defender and great court vision but my guy Kuz is about his buckets and didn’t need the whole dad hype me up bcuz I’m not that good package deal

Lakers should offer hart ball Ingram and 4 first rounders. I have a hard time believing the pelicans say no to that. also allows lakers to keep kuzma

They do NOT need a Superstar like these fools keep saying. The Lakers lost to Cleveland without Lebron. Let them go through the fire. Let them sow and grow. LeBron will love it come playoff and finals THIS YEAR! A lot of this rhetoric will be on my compilation video at the end of the season and postseason when the Lakers win the FINALS. Yep, I said it! The Lakers are the best team in the NBA right NOW. If LeBron can get to the finals with K. Love and the funny bunch, he can win the FINALS with the deep bench he has NOW!

Ingram is the one they need to get rid of. The kid holds the ball for too long. If he's going to attack the basket he's got to be quick about it or pass the ball. I hate watching the lakers move the ball well until it comes to Ingram and he'll dribble like six times trying to figure out what he wants to do. Let lonzo, lebron and Rondo facilitate the offense. Ingram needs to catch and shoot, catch and pass, or catch and dribble penetrate, just like Kuzma.

Lonzo ball is going to be a great player. Court vision, basketball IQ, athletisism, defense, rebounding. It was not a mistake to draft him. The only hole in his game is shot creating / scoring. If he can fix that part of his game he'll be an all star. Only people who dont know the game of basketball or harbor a grudge because of his dad think hes trash.

Why are we giving lonzo ball a pass, he has games where he scores 0 points in 36min. That is disturbingly low.
