    Every time I drive up to Palmdale and see the Masters College sign I think of Penberthy.

    Yup. Just a few years ahead of myself. Saw him play a couple times back then before his LAL stint, random runs

    Cool to see him back with LAL.
    I know Shaq is happy. He loved Penberthy back in the day, still likes to bring him up every so often

    Those size 22s weren't going to shine themselves.

    One time Shaq was doing some of LAL's highlights and when Caruso made a shot he yelled, " Mike Penberthy! "
    Almost fell out of my chair

    Feels like overkill. Wanted Ainge to get a taste of AD/Lakers on opening night..or Popovich..or Kerr.

    Yeah, I don't like the opening night one since PG will be sidelined. Don't want to hear any excuses.

    Definitely glad the sorry ass Knicks aren't playing on Christmas this year.

    Cray Cray signs 4 year extension. Why didn’t he wait till the off season and get a 5 year max deal?

    Clippers are gonna be super load management champs. Don't know why people think they'll be the 1 seed.

    Knicks are so sad. Porzingis demanding a trade was damning and it ended up playing out the way it was supposed to, with them on the short end of the stick in NY

    Probably wasn't getting a 4 yr max offer on the open market. Could've even took a short term deal to hit the market again when the cap goes up, but yeah this is probably him acknowledging a weak market. He's breaking down some physically, coming off a long run. Locked in the money, gonna have stress free, fat and happy vaca this season with team expectations lowered. Shit, he got fat last season, before he had the money locked in

    Idk his net worth is listed at 20 million and in the next four years he's going to make 5 times that
    Just on the chance of an injury or erosion of skill sets I think it's a wise choice

    Of course, they really value his mouth and call him the motor/heart of their dynasty. And he definitely played a big part in their playoff run this past season, but he also basically used the reg season to get in shape. Obviously, they've played a ton of ball over the past 5 years, so some would probably give him a pass.

    They did him a solid with this deal, for all that he's done..almost reminds me of Kobe getting the big extension at the end of his career for all that he had done for LAL. Similar in some ways, but I am surprised that they found themselves having to overpay Draymond since they're supposed to be " light-years ahead of everyone ". Guess they also have the opportunity, with this deal, to sort of look good with the players since they've been under attack as of late for their medical team's decision to clear Durant. Taking care of Draymond looks good, even though a lot of players don't like him

    Durant's "team", including the physician who performed the surgery on his Achilles also gave the OK for Durant to play. Lots of so-called blame to go around there.

    They did, but only one entity was pressuring him to return. GSW.
