I guess it boils down to the fact that I don’t really like the NBA anymore.

Doc still has it! It's like the only players he knows about are the ones he already coached.

IT is the most talented guy left. Whichever team lands him is going to be happy as fuck Just make sure he gets a player option.

Boogie is 1 of my favorite players in the league.

Whatever he’s down with, I’m down with it, too.

Celtics’ changed the game with Pierce, Garnett and Ray Allen.

LeBron only countered it.

That, they did.

Warriors were championship bound for the 3rd consecutive season, anyway, so there’s really no harm and no foul on Boogie’s behalf. From what I’ve read, it was either Golden State or Boston.

With us in a full development phase, I do take solace knowing that we don't have to compete with GS right now, and at some point, in the not so distant future, that team will no longer be what it is. And when they and all of their WC buddies start declining as those stars age and teams disassemble, we'll be there rising from the ashes like a Phoenix and ready to take the league by storm.

What a waste it would be right now if we were truly trying to win the championship this year or next. We're developing at exactly the right time. And hell, we may even sneak into the playoffs and get some playoff experience.

Good to see you back on here Bob, doing your thing. Some peeps were trying to overtake your Kareem-esque posting title.

Or he goes to the celtics (the other team he considered) and the Knicks are super fucked. Its a 1 year deal. The warriors can't afford to keep him. Its always the apocalypse to nba fans as if the rockets werent one game away. Who knows what kyrie and hayward will do next year. Who knos if boogie will even be the same player again. The lakers have too many fucking titles. I have no problem with golden state locking them down for the forseeable future.

We're the same fanbase that mortgaged our entire team to get superstars. Everyone's entire ambition is to draft talent that becomes all stars and then get superstars to come play with them. Thats exactly what the warriors did. If it were the Knicks youd all say it was karmic payback for 40 years of suck. It was only a few years ago that the warriors were a team with a notoriously rabid fanbase enduring a championship draught dating back to the mid 70s. Of course they are piling it on. Of course their fanbase is obnoxious. Do you understand how obnoxious all of us would be with this sort of overnight success? Let frank wake up being klay, let knox become durant, let kp turn into cousins, draft a steph, win 73 games, sweep whoever the goat flavor of the decade is, and see if i give 2 shits about other teams and the sake of parity after 40 plus years of this bullshit.

Free Agency has only been open for 2 days though. Philly was apparently in talks with him too. Find that hard to believe.

You see stuff like this and immediately think of Ron Baker making 4.5 million. :taunt:

I think he assumed he could build a new super team in short order because thats what LA does. I dont think he thought there was a chance in hell they'd strike out on PG, Cousins, and Kawhi. No lakers fan ive talked to thought that could happen to them. They're the most entitled fanbase in all of sports


Speaking as a fan of both teams (knicks first of course), I can say you are 100% right.

Report: Lakers passed on Cousins because they didn’t want to wait on his return https://nba.nbcsports.com/2018/07/04/re ... is-return/


Also, I didn’t know Lakers were 12th best defensive team in the league this past season.
