Watching this implode is sad. A once proud organization smh.

Kurt Rambis is now a player in basketball operations. Jesus people. And didn't want Lue.

As much as i don't like Lue, He wanted to bring Tom Thibodeau with him and Frank Vogel. Would have had a great staff, but they wanted him to have 3 yrs and not 5.

With Rob Pelinka in charge .... Might as well get used to being in the lottery

Lebron James need to demand that Jeanie Buss hire Lue or trade him. I've been a Lakers fan for 44 years. But Lebron doesn't deserve this. No Superstar would even be considering the Lakers if he wasn't there. That's just facts. Lebron do what's best for your family.

Yea i read that yesterday and was like WTF.

Did you see where the whispers are now trade Lebron? Honestly i say do it. Send him to Boston for Tatum , Rozier , and the 14th, 20th and 22nd pick. And let's build our franchise

The only thing wrong with the franchise is the incompetence of the owner and the front office. So it doesn't matter who they trade for. They are living in the past of an NBA that doesn't exist anymore. I stand by my statement on what Lebron should do. He deserves better then this.

As much as I hate the Lakers (and low-key enjoying watching you fans go crazy) as a fan of the league...it's just better when you guys are relevant. I never would have thought the Lakers would be going through this.

 Question for you diehards because you guys know the front office and roster better than I do.....Is it a quick solution out there especially with LBJ or is this something that is going to take a complete rebuild?

If it was me , I would send LBJ and Ball to Boston for Tatum , Rozier , and the 14th, 20th and 22nd pick. We also would have the 11th pick.

I would then use the picks for sign and trade bait to target players listed

Anthony Davis - C
Nikola Vucevic -C
Kemba Walker -PG
Klay Thompson - SG

Then go after
Boogie Cousins -C
Julis Randle - PF

I believe we could pull  Nikola Vucevic, Kemba and Boogie. I would also sign Julis Randle. So a starting roster of

PG - Kemba
SG- Tatum
SF- Ingram
PF - Kuzma
C- Vucevic

with Hart , Boogie , Randle, Rozier coming off the bench 1st. And use one draft pick on a 3 point threat. That roster gets us to the playoffs

Lol i listed a realistic starting 5.

PG - Kemba
SG- Tatum
SF- Ingram
PF - Kuzma
C- Vucevic

with Hart , Boogie , Randle, Rozier coming off the bench 1st. And use one draft pick on a 3 point threat. That roster gets us to the playoffs

Kemba and Vucevic would get max deals. Tatum on his rookie deal. So is Ingram. So is Kuzma. Cousins isn't going to get top dollar because he's hurt again. LBJ salary can cover him, Rozier, Randle and the draft pick . Lebron makes 35.65 million per year

I'm a 44r year Lakers fan. Save that for some troll you're debating. The facts are nobody let along any superstar were even considering coming to the Lakers until Lebron signed up. Because the franchise has been ran by a bunch of idiots who has made it the laughing stock of the NBA.

Okay I'll play along. Why is he getting exactly what he deserve?

Lebron is only about Lebron.  He has zero heart.  As old as Michael Jordan is, he'd crush Lebron in one on one, tiddly winks, marbles, and the Oklahoma Drill. Jordan will always do whatever it takes to beat you.  He'll not complain when the going gets tough.  Jordan would have never quit like and bitched like Lebron did in San Antonio because it was a little warm.

If I was building a championship team Lebron would never be considered.

So basically your argument that he deserves what he's getting (as you see it). Isn't  base on anything of substance. But some juvenile primal devotion to Michael Jordan that's been retired since dirt and has absolutely nothing to do with this. Smh...for Christ sakes. Make the insanity STOP!

We are paying 35.65 million for 2 wins. We won 35 without him and 37 this past season. He made a 2 game difference

We won 35 with a healthy team, and won two more with a team plaqued with injuries with him. Missing a Total of 202 days combine between the core players of the team.

How that has anything to do with the fact that no superstar even considered coming to play for the Lakers until after he signed. I have no idea.

This selective memory base on irrational dislike/hate is truly a psychological phenomenon.
