    All things considered, mainly the Rambis/shadow owner shenanigans and constant leaks, LAL stumbled into a legitimate head coach and the 4th overall pick in the draft. Basically how the offseason has begun..in success. So fuck Gayle Benson..that's why the media is off and running with Zion's distaste for the Pelicans.

    Meanwhile, we're just gonna Mr. Magoo our way back to glory over here @ LAL, it seems.

    So after the league's victory over tanking yesterday, they're now looking to move up the start of free agency a bit. Feels like they know what they're doing. NBA offseason overshadows anything going on in June/July..the NBA trade deadline just KO'd the Super Bowl. I don't know how you can improve on the drama that the offseason brings, but we'll see what this does. They're tired of the all nighters, I guess and maybe that's the only thing here? The change will be enforced this offseason.


    At his annual news conference at the Las Vegas Summer League in July, NBA commissioner Adam Silver said such a change was likely to happen.

    "In terms of when free agency begins, I've not only heard from my friends in the media, but as I get older and the people I grew up [with] in the NBA get older, I think we're all tired of all-nighters," Silver said. "What I've heard from, again, several of my colleagues at teams are, does this really need to be at midnight? I think that's something that we'd need to find agreement on with the players' association. But I think we could change for next year.

    The allnighter is what creates the chemistry between the executives and media that leads to the moments of anticipation that build the type of dramatic tension that we consider quality entertainment.

    Garland is a great fit for the Lakers. Can really shoot it and score. Can hide him next to Lonzo defensively. Garland or Culver if we stay put at #4.

    Garland is drawing Lillard comparisons
    Don't mind if we do
    Definitely need another dynamic guard, but especially one that can play down the stretch in the 4th quarter..make free throws if he's sent to the line

    Right on target. Unlike a Lonzo FT.

    His downside is like Lou Williams before the NBA changed the rules to make players like Lou Williams great.
    If a rookie Garland could provide current Lou Williams level play then he would be considered right up there with Trae Young pseudo Curry types.

    Lol Pelicans. The ultimate squeeze play being rumored. Zion, yet to hire an agent or sign a shoe deal, is potentially weighing the option of returning to Duke instead of going to small market/football-centric New Orleans. God I hope this is true. Benson doesn't deserve Zion. Doesn't deserve David Griffin either.

    Force a pre-draft trade ala Philly/Boston. Zion is rumored to be leaning towards signing with Klutch, so Paul/LeBron could pull the power play.." we can talk Zion into playing there..if you sorry MFs give us AD in a fair trade "

    I think the only fits on the team are primarily bigs but most of the good bigs will probably not go in the top 7.
    The other options are maybe a shoot first speedy combo guard with potential or a dynamic scoring small ball power forward with a pro jumper, frame and ethic.
    I don't think we should draft any 6'5 to 6'9 swingmen with great potential but not exactly LeBron ready bodies and hearts.
    Besides we already have plenty of those.
    I think the best option at #4 for this team is Rui Hachimura the Japanese Freak soon to be known as Blackzilla. Normally I don't like these types of players but these guys have been working out lately and he would be like a low key version of Kuzma.
    Rui seems like the type of player who would play well on the Spurs. Those are good players.


    PG: Kyrie or Kemba, Lonzo
    SG: Lance, Ingram
    SF: LeBron, Hart
    PF: Millsap, Kuzma
    C : Deadmon, Hachimura

    Sign Kemba or Kyrie to max deals and give Millsap and Deadmon big 1 year deals and roll with them.
    Then sign AD when his deal is over and let the veterans come back to bench roles.

    Trade LeBron for #1 pick.

    Zo
    BI
    Zion
    Kuz

    #4 pick And room for a Max FA.

    Not gonna win this year, but good for the next 10

    Yeah, that'll do it for the Raptors
    Brook Lopez would probably be the 2nd best offensive threat for the Raptors Smh
    Should be Philly playing in this series
