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?

You guys act like Lebron is the only guy on the team. He's getting exactly what he deserves.

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

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
