Huh? LeBron wasn't a free agent. He would've been under the Lakers contract while demanding someone from another team get traded. Kawhi was not under anyone's contract. I've yet to hear anyone blast the Lakers for trading that package for AD especially now that they've created some depth. Maybe before all of the Kawhi watch was over when the Lakers weren't making any moves and they didn't emerge to be a legit landing spot for Kawhi because AD will be a FA next year and it could've been a one-year rental. But now with the Lakers having a contending squad, no one is giving a f*** about the Lakers trading their future. Maybe because Ingram will never be as good as AD and Lonzo was never worth being the 2nd pick. The Lakers looked to be running out of available free agents to sign while waiting for Kawhi but they recovered. You're always looking for a reason to make everyone look like they're out to get the Lakers when in reality, they're getting all kinds of love now after years of ineptitude under the Buss kids.
