    and Clarkson is another young player who is sitting there with a PER of 17 - he's no world beater but he's effective.

    Cleveland is definitely better with those two. A win, win.

    So this clears the way for Bron Bron to LA next year?
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    Yeah, I just had a notification saying they acquired IT. Now that I see the details, I like it. Although I liked Clarkson and Nance.

    I haven't been paying much attention to the NBA yet this season - why did Cleveland have to get rid of IT?

    he was killing them on both ends of the floor and was becoming a cancer in the locker room. he was shooting 36% FGs, 25% 3pt and was the worst defensive player in the league.

    ultimately was just a terrible fit and they couldn't win with him.

    KD isn't trying to ride Lebron's coattails and clearly doesn't need him to win a chip. It's like dude said in the video. Lebron needs these dudes more than these dudes need Lebron. Kawhi I could see just b/c he's trying to get out of dodge anyway.

    you mean, he didn't need him to win championships - just as Curry didn't need him, Duncan didn't need him, etc. LeBron isn't the only guy winning championships. of course Durant didn't need him. Nobody needs LeBron to win championships. Everybody has options.

    But when LeBron, Kawhi and PG are winning championships in LA, KD will be on the outside looking in. If KD wants in, now is the time.

    Dude you forget that Utah will be dominating the west next year with team basketball and this Big 3 bullshit will look really silly.

    So now will Laker fans finally admit that LeBron is better than Kobe?

    I’ll be forever disappointed in LeBron for this move if he doesn’t knock off the Warriors. If he does, all is forgiven.

    I'm betting that LBJ shows up in October with a new nose and breast reduction surgery. New hair plugs too.

    I've never hated LeBron and I'm looking forward to the start of a genuine rivalry between the W's and the Lakers, as i don't recall when both teams were good at the same time (with the W's failing to hold up their end more often than not). But I don't see LBJ as being enough to put the Lakers over the top, unless they come up with a couple other pieces. And by the time they do, I wonder about the mileage on LeBron. If you include his several playoff runs, the guy has as many miles on his odometer as a 36 year-old. I assume that's why he agreed to a four-year, as I suspect his value is going to drop significantly over the next couple of years.

    And I shall now leave this thread and take a shower.

    Ha ha Lakers now have 7-2 odds for the 2019 NBA Title and Cavs fall to 500-1.

    It would take Lebron, Kawhi, and Paul George (PG now not happening) before 7-2 odds would make sense.

    I'm not the world's premiere basketball mind, but... how is this Lakers team better than last year's Cavs? They don't even have a Kevin Love or a Kyle Korver.

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    Cap space to land another big name next off season. The play is not for this year, but the next 3 after that, IMO. Also, Kuzma is a more complete wing than anyone on the Cavs last year, and Ball is a legit trip-dub threat on any given night. They definitely need a couple more pieces, but they are already nearly as talented as that Cavs team, and they have another 50 million to spend. The trick is going to be to avoid the inclination to spend it all now to win this year.
