    I'm not really sure why people have such a problem with trading Bron.

    In any scenario where you have a star player who has one year left on his contract and who in all likliehood isn't going to extend, then the logical next step is for the team to trade him for assets in his final year.

    Lakers have the choice of keeping Bron, not contending and then losing him in a year or not contending, trading Bron and picking up some assets. It's really a no brainer.

    At this point the Lakers should be trying to get as many picks as possible in preparations for a rebuild. AD should also be traded for picks or young players.

    Yall kill me with this. The overwhelming majority of teams would trade 6 years worth of picks for ONE title.

    The people who think that's the move are...I don't even have a word for that shyt.

    You not getting rid of Russ and he plays much better without Lebron, the logical thing to do was always to try and move him and even possibly AD and build around Russ.

    Of course people will go huh..but even if Russ shyts the bed, he's got one year to be himself with personel he can actually play with and then you plug someone else into that system once you get off his contract.

    People have their head up Bron's ass so far that they can't fathom that he is the piece that 'fits out' in this scenario.

    The overwelming majority of teams don't already have umpteen rings.

    Jeanie did that to validate her tenure, not because LA was starving for a chip. Not to say they don't want to win every year, of course they do. But you can't compare most NBA teams to the Lakers when it comes to how desperate they are, or should be to trade away assets to get one.

    Phil Jackson flatlined the knicks organization and the only thing lebron haters can bring up is what he did with Jordan pippen Kobe and shaq. The reason they play is to win titles and LA knew what Bron was about when they brought him here. Don’t cry now muhfukkas you should be going all out trying to win another title while you can instead of listening to Mr Posse. You was shyt water before Bron got there and you gone be shyt water when he’s gone so you better get what you can get before he rides off in the sunset with Bronny

    fukk Phil Jackson


    I was happy that Lebron had the guts to call his racist ass out. People like to conveniently forget about the book he wrote with some very shall we say…:mjpls: takes on the difference between black and white players.


    Also the second book he wrote shytting on Kobe. Phil’s got issues with BLACK players exhibiting authority and fully utilizing their power and influence to put themselves in the best positions possible

    What honestly could they even get for LeBron? He has a max of 3 years left, so I'm confident that no team is going to trade a star, or a series of top draft picks for him.

    The only way that would happen is if Bronny turns into a "can't miss" prospect, but he'd enter the league in 2024, and Bron's contract is up in '23.

    The Lakers wouldn't get shyt for him.
