Mike Beasley to the Lakers! Ferrell to Kings.
love the beasley signing
the lakers are going to drive teams absolutely bonkers next season between rondo, stephenson, mcgee, and beasley. bring on the hate
GMbron knows he needs someone to hit big shots for him in LA...
Agreed! Always liked your posts. Hope you're in the fantasy league.
Sixers traded Richaun Holmes to the Suns for literally
If it's good, yeah. The minute things go bad there that locker room could explode.
I have no problem with that, but trying to get a washed up Korver when you have Reddick makes no sense.
Opposition teams will be so far ahead on the scoreboard that it won't matter.
The Lakers won 35 games with mostly the same roster. They've lost Julius Randle and Brook Lopez, but have added the best player in the world. They aren't going to be chasing many teams. Maybe early on while everyone learns to play with one another, but I absolutely expect this team to be top-4 in the West.
Need 50 wins to make playoffs in WC. I'm not so sure they'll make it.
I think you're grossly underestimating the greatness of LeBron James.
Nah I know what you mean. It's just that I think West is a different beast compared to East.
The west most certainly is a different animal than the East; but Rondo's improved shooting, Walking Buckets giving their bench some pop, McGee's energy, & those kids, isn't exactly a barren squad for LeBron to work with. LeBron used to take much weaker teams to the finals in the east, so I'm pretty sure the Lakers at least get into the playoffs this year...even if we could soon see the 1st opening-round exit of LeBron's career.
Dwyane Wade Rumors: Xinjiang Flying Tigers Ready to Offer 'Monster' Contract
Would make sense given he just signed a lifetime contract with Li-Ning, the Chinese footwear company.
Exactly. Also Lance is a good, athletic player who can defend the 2 or the 3. I like how quickly darko abandoned his blowout post at the bottom of the last page.
It may be different, but this roster is also leaps and bounds better than the Cavs roster from last year.
I think they crack 50 wins rather easily.
Hawks sign Len.
people are really underestimating the lakers. not make the playoffs? really?
last year's lakers team won 35 games with ingram, randle, rookies like kuzma and ball, and guys like lopez and KCP
now you have depth in rondo, stephenson, beasley, and mcgee. oh, and lebron james is on the team too
they'll win 50 for sure barring any major injuries
Lakers won't win a championship next season but they have a pretty deep roster right now.
How I see the starters on opening day
The bench should provide some good scoring
lebron hasn't missed the playoffs since 2005 as a 20 year old
LeBron alone probably adds about 10-15 wins.
7/8 playoff teams from last season look like playoff teams again. NO being the team most likely to drop out. Denver finished 9th and I reckon they'll be better. I can see NO/LAL/DEN fighting for that last spot.
I don't see the Lakers as a team fighting for the 8 seed. They'll be a sure-fire team that gets in IMO as one of the top-5 teams in the West.
