    Which makes me think Ball will not see the rock nearly as much. Plus like T said hes not as good 3 point shooter so how is he gonna score

    That's the problem with LeBron. He has to have the ball. He can't coexist with a point who wants to run the offense.

    The Bulls dealt with that dilemma eight years ago when they wanted to sign him. They had Derrick Rose at the point. Derrick Rose wanted the ball in his hands. No way Derrick Rose and LeBron James were going to work together.

    The Lakers are f*cked.

      There's a difference between derrick rose and LeBron. Lebron makes his teammates better. Derrick Rose just wanted to put his down and drive to the basket until his knees were gone. The offense should run through LeBron . He's the best player on the planet

        I guess. He plays with a pair of 2 guards. Phucks up the glass, but it's produced three NBA titles. Hey, Michael phucked up things, too. You adjust.

        I agree that there’s a solid chance he gets shipped somewhere. Wonder if it’s in a deal for Kawhi?

        Hell, it dont matter. The warriors just signed cousins. Has there ever been a team with 5 all stars? All in the prime of their careers. If cousins is healthy for the playoffs they won't lose a game

            I'd like to know how GS juggles the numbers. It's virtually impossible to pay that many great players market value at the same time.

            Just change to color from pink to purple and put a Lakers rocker over it.

              That and deferred money. Teams have to juggle the numbers and players have to be willing. Cousins is a huge get.

              They just raised the ceiling last week so teams can stockpile for a few years and pay off the debt later. Raised it by 75 million. Tag that along with the Bird rights they have from great drafting and it becomes unfair almost but you can’t punish them because they were smart.

                Of course he is. He’s 20 years old and averaged 7 rebounds and 7 assists a game. As a PG. And as a rookie. That’s remarkable.

                As for personalities - he and his dad are douchebags.
