    The last time Lebron pushed for a specific PG, it ended disastrously. LBJ needs to just focus on getting healthy and leading this team by example, on both sides of the court.

      DLO would cost less by maybe 10mil. hes already getting 30mil... id be surprise with him taking a discount while in his prime years... especially if he continues to play well and is averaging career highs across the board .. and is only 3 years younger than kyrie .. i really like DLO thats a smooth game BUT
      with that said... kyrie at 50mil... and already knows how to play with other superstars and got a chip is worth the extra 10 mil is a no brainer... i hope this comment is a joke lol.
      DLO "definitely cost less" is expected for 1x all star a few yrs back...for that extra 10-15mil you get:
      Kyrie 8x allstar STARTER who is an almost 50-40-90 w/ less than 2.8TO a game EVERY year lol... the best ball handler in the HISTORY of the game, the best UNDER rim package in the HISTORY of the game...top 10 in FT almost every year, the top 4th qtr scorer in the nba (and top 5 usually every year) , and while 9th is ISO plays ,hes the most efficient at 1.28pt/ possession/ top 3 in clutch while giving at LEAST 25/5/5..and will constantly and consistently draw double/triple teams and yet will NOT turn the ball over like that... THIS is what youre getting bruh lol... Dlo is good but NO WHERE near anything i just mentioned there... and irving ALREADY knows how to play with lebron.
      so YES exactly lke the suns did for durant... EXACTLY what brooklyn did to get harden, EXACTLY what atlanta did to get Dejounte murray , Exactly what clelveand did to get Donovan Mitchell.... you trade/give the crops if you can build a mega farm. sometimes it goes well (every team except minnesota) sometimes it doesnt (giving up everything for rudy gobert is wild lol)

    I think everyone in the org. has moved off Ky, nobody expected Palinka to make those moves. LBJ wasn't the only one that wanted Ky before that. But the way Reeves, Dlo, Vando, Rui, DS, Brown Jr. have been balling you gotta keep them.

    The Lakers will only have 134 mil in cap and will only have 4 players signed this summer with Bron and AD taking up 90 mil of that. Christie and Vanderbilt will take up another 6. That leaves around 38 mil left to fill out the other 11 roster spots. Kyrie is already making around 36 a year. The Lakers need to bring back the good young pieces they acquired and fill out the roster with really good role players. I’m not even a Lakers fan.

      @Wzrd Hndrixx Kyrie is looking for a 50-56 mil per year for 4-5 years deal. The Lakers can’t afford to pay him and fill out a decent roster with depth. Also, although Kyrie is a fantastic player, he has injury issues of his own.

    Yall never learn do you. This js the most one sided, erroneous argument to go for Kyrie solely based on desire. What are they gonna do with ANOTHER DEPLETED roster once they have him!?!

    • Beau838
      Beau838 2 місяці тому

      I’ll preface my comment with this: Kyrie might be my favorite active NBA player to watch.
      That being said, I agree with you. Kyrie is too unstable to have on my Lakers
      Kyrie Stans won’t ever address the question of what happens when Kyrie, Bron, and AD all miss games at the same time b/c of Injuries. It’s not a matter of if they will it’s a matter of WHEN it will happen. It’s going to happen. A lot of them got their heads in the clouds thinking just magically when all 3 guys get together on one team will suddenly be durable players
      A top heavy big 3 team can only work if at least 2 of your 3 stars can be counted on to stay healthy. All 3 of AD, Bron, Kyrie are all injury prone at this point. Getting Kyrie is just asking for problems.
      Say bye bye to DLo, Rui, and potentially AR too if we S&T for Kyrie who will hard cup us. Also say bye to our 2023 1st rounder who DAL would 100% ask for in a S&T scenario

  • Cuong Quoc
    Cuong Quoc 2 місяці тому +8

    If i remember correctly, the Laker has no cap space to give Kyrie the money he wanted. The only way they can get him is through a Sign and Trade with the Mav, Laker would lose a bunch of assets for a guy who is also as injury prone as AD and Lebron without the depth. Now that is not a good thing

    • Beau838
      Beau838 2 місяці тому

      Exactly what I’ve been trying to tell Kyrie stans
      Say bye bye to DLo, Rui and potentially Malik AND AR if we S&T for Kyrie. Also best believe DAL won’t play ball with the Lakers in a S&T scenario unless LAL includes their 2023 1st and 2nd rounder. So say bye bye to that depth as well that’s on a team friendly/under team control contract for 4-7 years.

  • Uncle Skeeta
    Uncle Skeeta 2 місяці тому +6

    Only way I would want Kyrie.. (he won’t do it but) but if he was willing to come in and sign a low deal like harden did so we could fill out our roster better.. BUT his ego would not let him sign a non max

  • TheHuskyK9
    TheHuskyK9 2 місяці тому +7

    Too many non-Laker fans that don't know the situation trying to give their two cents and try to say not going for Kyrie is foolish. As a Laker fan, first off, Kyrie is too expensive. If the Lakers got Kyrie, they won't be able to pay for the quality depth they've built. Guys like Reaves, Vando, D'Lo, and Rui won't be able to come back, and the Lakers would have to sign old and slow players on vet minimums, just like what they did last year and what happened then? And to the "Kyrie is NOT Russ" rebuttal, Kyrie may not be Russ playstyle-wise, but financial-wise, it will have the same impact as Russ. 3 star starters with no bench, and I can say most of us real Laker fans do not want to go through that again.
    The smart move is to run it back with this roster. Best defensive team in league since the deadline and this post-deadline Lakers roster is MUCH more competitive than the roster they started the season with. Reaves literally just dropped 35/6/6 tonight, D'Lo with 18 pts, etc. LeBron needs to do what Pat Riley figuratively told him in Miami, shut up and stay in your lane. Seriously, the only player from Bron's "recommendations" that has worked out is AD and even then he's been on-and-off due to injuries

      @GorcSauce69 Bron's out injured, Curry just returned from injury. Both the Lakers and the Warriors are fighting to be play-in teams...that's not what a winning season looks like. Could they maybe turn it around and salvage it, maybe, but neither team is looking to win a chip this year. Could it work next year...maybe. Peak in the NBA is considered 28 years old btw(it doesn't end at 28 and you've got more in ya, but that's the peak).

    Don't make the mistake like you did with Westbrook. You have a good thing going with Russell. Kyrie is a risk and could be an overrated trade regardless of how Kyrie's perceived talent is, at the end of the talent isn't everything it's about chemistry with the team.

    Here's the thing - if Bronny is good enough to get into the league after 1 year in either college or the G League LeBron's gone in '24. What would you have then? An older AD and ol reliable Kyrie on a long-term contract taking cap space where you can keep more of this unit intact

  • Lavi LAv
    Lavi LAv 2 місяці тому +1

    This Lakers team is ok so far. It's what it should have looked like at the start of the season in order to just be decent. We need more, if DLO needs to go, sorry to see him go but we want to win. I would probably keep DLO, Vanderbilt and AR. Trade Brown, Beasly, Shrouder and AD if we have to just, to get Kyrie Irving. We can get a decent center that can play defense and leave most of the scoring on Bron and Kyrie. Kyrie won't be a streek scorer. He will put up at least 20 a night if he is playing, and upwards of 50 if he goes off. Yes we need Kyrie and Rob Pelanka better get him a center worth a lick and trade mombamba too please....

Not only helps him but also keeps the team from being in shambles when he leaves.

    Kyrie is a far better player however he is unreliable. He is injurie prone, his character makes it hard to bond with teammates and its often a issue. Costs more than Dlo so I don't think its worth going after Kyrie for a player who you don't even know what you are going to get. With Dlo you know what you going to get and he managed to be a good teammate and stay out of controversy unlike Kyrie that it keeps following him everywhere. And I'm saying it with all the pain in my heart bc I was a Kyrie fan.

    They could have had Buddy Hield and Myles Turner but got Westbrook instead. I have to applaud Rob Pelinka for doing successful damage control on Lebron’s awful free agency decision making. He’s not a GM, he failed as a GM, he needs to play ball. He has every right to ask for more talent and request specific players but I highly doubt Westbrook was Pelinka’s first choice considering the excellent roster he resurrected with sheer willpower.

    • Bbenw
      Bbenw 2 місяці тому

      The Myles Turner addition would have been excellent. It would allow AD to play the role Vando is playing now with more floor spacing and Hield would play the 2 with excellent 3 pt shooting and he’s certainly better than Beasley. Schroeder could then be inserted into the starting lineup with Bev coming off the bench to provide a spark on defense.

    NO TO KYRIE… keep the team that they have right now and run it back next season. The Lakers have a more improved, YOUNGER, and hungry players. Why would they let go of such good players to get 1 superstar who is mostly unreliable and don’t know what he’s going to do in a season? Then they have to adjust and rebuild team chemistry? NO THANK YOU. It doesn’t work that way..
    It also depends on what the new players want to do in the off season. Some of their value will go up and I’m sure a lot of teams are going to try to get them. If it is possible, I hope the Lakers FO will be able to resign all of them, but the reality is…I think some players will probably leave either for more money or to have more playing time. So maybe they can pick up another big guy or SG or SF.. again depending who stays or goes.

      I agree. Restructure around the youth, a "post LeBron plan". LeBron can help the Lakers in creating a strong core to bring future success.
      To restructure a team around LeBron is high risk, he is not an individual that has demonstrated a level of accountability in which they should place the future of their organisation upon.

  • Driver Jay

    Bron has tired my patients with his misguided need for control. He doesn't care about anything but talent, and his contractual leverage over squad desicions. He has gaslighted himself into his basketball brilliance, when his squad desicions have been largely trash, AD not with standing, but his body has gone back to being unreliable.
    Griffen got kyrie out of Beleiveland cause he got his Chip, and went back to being all about himself to the detriment of Lue's ability to coach the squad. Lie kept having to make adjustments to keep kyrie happy and cooperative, which meant allowing him to have kyrie show off time, and to let him have the team at teams without James on the floor, and to allow him more on back time when Bron was on the floor. With the ideal kyrie would play team ball when they needed him to, and just enough not to break team spirit.
    Young fella, your pretty good at analyzing on the floor basketball, but you miss the politics of basketball, which in this day and age is more controlling of what happens on the floor than EVER.
    Stop just believing in talent, it's a misnomer that basketball character doesn't play a part in going deep into the playoffs, and most certainly winning a Chip.
    When James arrived back in Cleveland, kyrie saw that as a way for him to get that Chip kashe quickly, then was ready to take back over.
    kyrie is a narcissist, there is history of his behavior, especially his dangerous grooming on social media. But y'all have been sold that talent makes gods, and you can not question the relevancy of a god.
    kyrie is a master basketball talent, and similar to harden, can do whatever in basketball that he wants to do. There in lies the problem, what does the narcissist want at a given time ! Y'all see his behavior, except his explanations, hell, I've seen people make up explanations for him and kanya.
    There was this thing called common since, but our relationship with hollywood knocked that down, so now famous people who entertainment us our are guidance for life, males are calling other males gods.. This behavior is not the behavior of a free people, cause your vision is ALWAYS blurred.. cataracts 🧐

    Maybe it’s not just what LBJ wants or what Rob P. Can do … if Ky comes to LALs blame it on the limelight the attraction of star power ….IDK….right now let’s get in the playoffs…get another 5 from somewhere…

    And get a good solid first round picks
    And getting much younger players hungry to win some championship

    They literally only been healthy for 2 games. This team he healthy is great. Give them a full training camp, they’ll do better. Kyrie is far and abras better than Kyrie, but DLo is a much better teammate, cheaper, younger, and hungrier to win.

    Bron is leaving for bronny anyway you have you put all your cards on the table and get kyrie. They got good role players with Austin, Vanderbilt, Beasley then all that with AD. Lakers have to get Kyrie

    DAngelo is younger, cheaper, but also very much saner and seems more overall mentally dependable than Kyrie. There's that.

    I think Kyrie joining the Lebron is going backwards in life. Kyrie got so much more to lose than lebron if they join together.Even if they were to win another championship together, everyone including the media will be like “LeBron does it again, LeBron 40 years old still winning championships that why is he is the best in the world, LeBron LeBron LeBron, oh yeah And Kyrie helped.... a bit” Lebrons ego will always take all the credit.
    LeBron ego only cares about How good hes playing, that’s why the majority of players don’t reach their max potential when she’s on the court. That’s why the Lakers are striving Because he’s injured. Everything will switch once he is back. If he comes back before the play ins they won’t make the playoffs. As good as LeBron stats are this season he makes his team worse.

      Every good player removes something from the potential of others, even Steph, but you are right about the ego. Luka did not played, but he was just sitting - LeBron on the other-side was having a show on the sidelines.

    I like the team. Except AD. Tbh, he is a future ball of famer. But he is just.. not that guy. If you don’t agree, I really want to watch the FULL game w you (not the highlights) and show you all the bad AND good things he does. Then I think you’ll agree when I say that, yes he is good, but he is not worth it. I rather have 2 good players that will play games even when they are tired or “hurting” then 1 guy who (WHEN he decides to play) can be great or straight passive trash.

    • Natasha Kuzmanoska

      He is probably nagged with some type of injury or possibility of injury, he also seems to be feed up of something. Kyrie will probably be the same if he joins.

      @Natasha Kuzmanoska He, the medical and the coaching staff all said he was pain-free. If you are not injured or experiencing pain, then you play. Also, idc about Kyrie rn. That is not an excuse nor a reason for him to be playing like a $10 mill a year player instead of the $40 mill a year player he was being paid to play like. You’re a PROFESSIONAL so act like it.

    I think it's a joke how ppl give the credit to Palinka. Whenever everyone in the league want's those guy's. Yet with zero resources. They get all those guy's..? No one finds that strange. The NBA did this for LeBron and the Lakers.. No way those guy's would have even been allowed to go anywhere else. Bet. Makes no sense how my Pacers as smart of a front office they have wouldn't have done more to get a Vanderbilt, Rui at least. Idk, seems pretty strange to me. Any team could have gave more.

    I rather trade DLO, 2023 pick, 2029 unprotected first and 2030 swap for Makil Bridges. Then Sign Schroder to the MLE. Austin Reaves makes DLO expendable. Bridges is as elite of a 3 and D player as there is in the NBA right now. Vanderbilt, Bridges and AD is almost unfair defensively.
    That is for sure the best defensive starting line up in the league. And they are able to do that without clogging the lane on offense. That offense should be top 3-5. The bench would also be one of the best in the league.

    Lakers are better off to have D'Lo and all the young bucks.. Getting Kyrie will be another injury prone and flakey player you can't rely on. His focus isn't winning championships. That's what you have to remember.

    The Maverick Owner got Kyrie to keep him away from the Lakers. (Check out the history between the two teams). D’Angelo Russell is a better fit for my Lakers and should be resigned in the off season. #lakerfanb4logowaslogo💜💛#lakeshow💜💛 #lakerfan4life💜💛

    Kyrie, as great as he is, he is just one guy. He can't play multiple positions on the court. If Lakers roster as it is, is healthy come playoff time, it will be quite a nightmare of a matchup for any team in the league. More dangerous than if they had Kyrie and g-leaguers... They currently have enough firepower to cover for an off night from LeBron or AD, but if it was only Kyrie, they would all have to perform for them to win...
    And the defense would be vastly different... Kyrie is no stopper. LeBron is starting to lose a step or two on defensive end. Now they have some defensive talent to take on the tougher defensive matchups so LeBron or AD can conserve energy on defense.
    Lakers with the youth are way more dangerous than a team without any depth.

    AD is the only one that needs to go. He's not the leader we all thought he'd become. We need to trade him before he loses anymore value, just my opinion. We need a LEADER! LBJ is old, he wants to pass the torch!

    The squad they have now seems to be perfect. They jus need more time which they don't have. One summer together and they should be a force. Beasley needs to work on his shot this off season cause dude id extremely inconsistent. They should put Lonnie back in thr line up instead of him.
