I know but thats why this trade is exciting for them, Lebron will be trying to go that 110 but for once he wont need to in his career. Now with AD and one more star coming, Lebron wont have to go full crazy by himself 

even from the miami days, my favorite player dwayne wade seemed to be some shrug off #2 to him a lot of times. Now Lebron has a team where he isnt the best player by that much


The Cavs 2017 team was stacked....Healthy LBJ..Kyrie...Love...TT as a defensive rebounding center...3 Point shooters in Korver/Jr Smith/Channing Frye....Jeff Green/Richard Jefferson.....  LBJ in his prime....They got smoked...Lakers won't have a better team than that..

Also, if he didnt get hurt, this lakers team was on pace to finish top 4 in west, so idk where you get the 8th seed idea from

Might want to keep an eye out if you're black and are at a BART station. Just sayin'.....quiet


If there is video or eye witness of him hitting the law enforcement officer or a significant push....He needs to be suspended 1+ year...Dubs minority owner got suspended for a minor push after being crashed into....There is no double standard here..

Kyrie...Kemba...Jimmy....Go to the Fakers and you are the 3rd option...remember Chris Bosh.....Klutch Fakers...You Know LBJ and his drama is still #1 option...AD #2 Option...Take less money and give all the credit to LBJ and Klutch sports...

Everyone thinks the Lakers are a destination spot now with AD that other free agents will take less money to go there...All the top free agents this is their one and only shot get the biggest payday's of their careers in their primes...

exactly I know, I was just thinking of the best option possible. also if you do the math, thats only 3 mil more a year, if he wanted to leave for some reason, all is possible 


Its guaranteed $$..Will a 34 year Klay that had a torn ACL get $50 Million+ on a new contract if he signs with the Lakers.. He's won 3 titles already..He not a ring chaser...

If the Fakers do not win a title in 2020 its a bust.  Plain and simple....Gave up all those assets when they could have gotten AD in 2020 and kept every one all all their picks...

I believe since they have no free agents of their own, or restricted free agents, they are clear to sign with the rest, then fill with minimums and exemptions.


They have to get rid of Bonga & Wagner to make it work...Real shot is only Butler.... Kemba can get 5/$220 from charlotte or even ifCharlotte give him 5/$190 he still takes it..Can't leave $50 Million on the table as max he can get from lakers is 4/$140.   Kyrie is staying east coast....Butler can get more from Philly than with lakers.....Lot of $$ to spend in the offseason by teams so even the 2nd tier guys will get paid big bucks...

Max for player(s) with 7-9 years experience starting salary is $32.7 million with 5% increases each year for 4 years.  10 Years experience start at $38.15.   Kyrie...Kemba...Jimmy Butler all 7-9 years.

Impossible...No cap space.

Fakers got raped...Lonzo will be a star with Zion... They should have stayed put and keep everyone and get AD next year.....How LBJ ruined the Fakers franchise.

I think once they get confirmation that KD and Klay if they sign them will not play in 2020 or be 100% if they return..They unload Draymond and Iggy....Conceed the season and play Curry limited minutes...Get young assets/draft picks and develop them in this upcoming season..

Both will be and it does not matter to the Dubs as they own their rights and only team that can offer the 5 year max ...They will be over the cap signing either one or both and gladly pay the luxury tax of $200+ million.  The need to sign both because if they lose one...the still cannot sign anyone else of significant.

Because KD can make $40+ million next year on a 5 Year $221 million contract from the Warriors... or 4 year $160 million from another team, which will be more than his $32 million option.

It's a major story in Canada you Salty Dubs fan You guys are ridiculous. Go celebrate a win against a crippled team.

I recall Warriors winning a title vs a Cavs team without Love and Irving due to injuries...yet no one ever apologized for the bad luck Cleveland had with those 2 injuries...did the media ever make that excuse as part of their storyline? Nope...rarely ever mentioned how they beat a team with Lebron and no one else...it literally was 5 vs 1.

 


Why does everyone keep bringing up the 2015 title and injured Kyrie & Love.. GS was the favorites to win it vs the Cavs before the series started...They were going to win injuries or no injuries.. Same Dubs team in 2016 that set the NBA single season wins record and went up 3-1 vs the Cavs until Green got suspended. They were favored vs the Cavs in that Finals as well.   Raptors were not the Favorites vs the Dubs w/healthy Klay and Looney and supposedly KD coming back at some point in the series.   They won the series because the Dubs were injured.  If the Raptors were favored to win the series from the start and the Dubs had their players injured during the series it would not be a big deal.   Anyone that knows basketball knows a healthy Dubs squad beats the Raptors easily...You think Cousins would be out there in the 4th playing defense Kawhi/Van Fleet on pick and rolls.  It would be KD/Hamptons 5. Even you can admit that if Klay had not tore his ACL we would have a game 7 tomorrow.

No superstar player will ever take less than the max.  U want Kawhi to do it. Why didn’t LBJ take less than the max if he wanted other peers to team up with him.

Getting AD alone will not make the Fakers the favorites to win it all. LBJ is old and on the decline. Injury prone. Does not play Defense at an elite level like a Kawhi.  They need another all star, which they cannot get unless it for less than the Max and they get rid of Ingram.  Fantasy here
