    I don't know what the hell they are going for.

    The Lakers do know you don't win anything for signing the most players, right?

    Lebron went from playing with 1 major knucklehead to 3 plus Lavar Ball.

    There is now a chance for a Lance, Lonzo, LeBron, Rondo and Javale McGee lineup to happen and I cannot wait to see LeBron's expression when it does.

    It's kind of amazing that Lebron wasn't going to be able to win another championship with the cavs in the East

    so he goes to the Lakers in the west with an objectively worse lineup

    Like, he must clearly not give a shit anymore

    The millions of dollars and not having to work in Cleveland probably makes it easier.

    If they trade Lavar I'll feel alot better about rooting for them.

    However, they got rid of Randle which is a negative.

    At this point the Lakers are playing for next year, which is smart. They have LeBron committed for multiple years, something Cleveland was never able to do, and they’re more than willing to continue to let their young core continue to develop. I know most of you didn’t watch the Lakers last year, but they were way more competitive than people will give them credit for - split season series with the Celtics, 76ers, Cavs, Rockets, and took GS to OT multiple times. Now you add LeBron and some veterans to help that development, and they should be able to get to the playoffs this year.

    Then, all these deals are for one year, so they again have a max slot next year, where they can then sign Kawhi (or Klay Thompson) or any number of free agents outright without giving up assets. This isn’t a “let’s win the championship right away” thing like LeBron’s last 2 moves, but clearly a longer-term outlook.

    Seems like an odd play to punt the 1st year of 3 you'll for sure have LeBron for. But maybe they're playing 4D chess and they'll snag enough dudes to counter Houston and GS

    It's clearly a move revolving around GS. The Lakers are assuming the cap situation becomes untenable for the Warriors soon, either making it so they don't end up with much of a bench, or that they can swoop in and grab someone (probably Klay but KD keeps getting thrown out there) with their extra money. To go further, it'll be easier to move Luol Deng's contract next year when its an expiring deal, thus freeing up more money.

    But again, the Lakers last year improved by 9 games despite having the vast majority of their minutes played by guys under the age of 24 (the only consistent rotation piece over that age was Brooke Lopez). It's not unreasonable to assume that improvement continues going forward.

    The Lakers literally traded Clarkson and Nance to the Cavs just to free up the cap space to sign LeBron, and those two are awful.

    The Lakers roster without LeBron is clearly better than the Cavs roster without him, and I'm not sure how that is even a debate.

    Blazers let Ed Davis go for 4.4 million, missed out on Hezonja to the Knicks, and signed Stauskas to the minimum.

    So, not great!

    100% correct and it's frustrating how many people are acting as if this current roster is them in immediate win-now mode. The big second act comes next year when they stretch Deng and can sign Kawhi without giving up Ingram, Kuzma, or even Lonzo. Gutting their young core for an asset who wants to be on their team and they can sign outright next year makes no sense, it removes a large portion of the basketball incentive LeBron had for going to LA in the first place.

    PG re-signing in OKC was a wildly irrational move. I think all of the free agents in the known universe being considered as good as in Los Angeles for the past 5 years has been absurd as fuck, but LeBron with a long-term contract on the team changes the dynamics considerably. Not to say they won't change again if Kawhi ends up in any number of other basketball situations.

    The Lakers actually have a path to be competitive in two years, and that path does not involve overpaying for Kawhi this season.
