    The ' have you stopped beating your wife' query is a well-known loaded question, which makes it a logical fallacy.

    My question is, was Rome proven to be a wife beater? Serious question ...I've no idea if he did or didn't.

    I doubt that was the intent.
    It was merely to remind Rome that he was asking a bad question for base reasons.
    Stern employed a classic troll move.
    Rome understood and said touche... You caught me cheating.
    Remember that this shit sport.
    And you gotta be a good sport.
    Rome likes to play in the edges of the rules of good sportsmanship because it keeps the clones locked in.
    But when Stern checked him he backed down.
    Rome knew enough to know that he bumped up on an old master and that it's best not to test the limits of his power.

    This is exactly what happened and Rome said so immediately after the interview and acknowledged what had just happened.

    If Rome wanted to advance the narrative that the NBA regularly manipulated a tool designed to be neutral and a fair way to get bad teams better.....with no facts other than fan conjecture, Stern might as well turn the argument against Rome using the same tool.

    Stern was an a-hole, but he certainly wasn’t stupid, and Rome knew when not to continue on that path.

    Bronny James/Sierra Canyon on ESPN 2 tonight while LeBron/Lakers will be on ESPN facing the Pels. Pretty special

    And Matt Barnes says Darren Collison and Doc Rivers didn't really get along when they were on the Clips years back, so advantage Lakers for his services.

    Hoping acquiring Collison would be the end of the Rondo "era." Fucker needs to be Old Yellered.

    At this point, it seems Rondo was only hot to start the season, but now he doesn't even finish layups and floaters anymore. And we know his defense is spotty. Rondo is definitely out. And Avery Bradey is hurt again. Yep..let's hurry and add Collison. 20 blocks last night, but obviously can't rely on that. I will say that somehow headband Caruso is even better than non-headband Caruso, so we have that in our favor

    Remember when I said Kuz better have at least one bag packed? Kuz now receiving interest on the trade market..Lakers not shopping, but open and listening. Tomas Satoransky or Bogdanovic (SAC) are probably the most realistic/best returns we'd get. Maybe get a draft pick in addition, as well - which could be a key in freeing Iggy.


    Marc Stein@TheSteinLine
    Sacramento is among the teams that has tried to engage the Lakers in Kyle Kuzma trade talks, league sources say. The Kings know they would have to include sharpshooter (and soon-to-be restricted free agent) Bogdan Bogdanovic, for starters, in a Kuzma deal

    Ralph Mason@Ralph_MasonJr
    This Bogdanovic rumor + the Collison report suggests Rondo’s days as a Lakers rotation player might be numbered

    You knew he couldn't just be a low key role player..

    Is this because of the Bradley injury?

    Bogdanovic>Kuzma.

    Get rid of Kuzma/Rondo and this Lakers team will be so enjoyable.

    In terms of pure talent, would say they're either equal or Kuz has the edge. Kuz is still the guy who scored 40+pts through 3 quarters a couple times last year. Probably safe to say that Kuz has more potential on the defensive end, as well..better athlete, more length.

    But Bogdanovic is the better fit for what LAL needs to make the offense go, so I can understand the interest. Better ballhandler/playmaker, more consistent shooter. And Kuz just isn't going to reach his full potential without maxing out on touches

    Bogi Bogdanovic was out - sick - yesterday, and Horton Tucker got called up, so people are drawing conclusions - thinking a deal may be coming down at some point soon.

    Not sure if I wouldn't rather have Satoransky in return, and just see Kuz off to the eastern conference. Bogdanovic = Satoransky, basically

    Yahoo Sources: Los Angeles Lakers offered Anthony Davis a max contract extension this morning, but they were informed he would be bypassing in favor of entering free-agency.




    Much-anticipated
