    Consult, sure but not overpay for guys like TT or Smith.....and James had a hand in that.

    trust me if i thought it was the Cavs i would be saying it.

    I just dont think it is. I think he has an image of ruling LA and a big premiere for Space Jam 2 in LA with all the stars out, etc...he sees Kyrie making his shitty little Uncle Drew movie and wants to stomp the life out of it...

    could u imagine how big Space Jam 2 would be if LeBron was in LA? How much hype LeBron would get....hes the biggest story in the NBA, has the highest selling jersey, is everything anyone talks about if he goes to LA.

    if he goes alone though i think its hard for him to even get out of the 1st round and practically impossible to get out of the 2nd round- so its why i am still hedging slightly unless they can land someone- and while Boogie would be a good guy to land- will LEBron tie his future up in a mercurial big man that just had a torn achillees?

    I agree completely.......Vegas has LBJ at -5000 to sign with LA and that is greater than 90% and Vegas is not wrong very often.........I think its only a matter of time until he is a Laker................THe real question is does Boogie follow him.

    The fact that Lebron is not even going to the Philly meeting sure seems like a bad sign. He is going to be a Laker.

    I think they would be better off not making that deal. Cousins probably won't be back until Jan and Leonard is coming off an injury and LBJ is coming off a season in which he played a hundred straight games. He would be toast by the All Star break trying to keep them afloat if they traded all their young guys. They have a good young cast, add LBJ and keep him rested, let Boogie come back and then trade for what you need at the break IMO

    Because the Clippers are trying to backdoor you.

    If West can't beat you, He is at least trying to drive the price up.

    Harris, SG-A and Robinson is better than any Lakers deal that doesn't include Ingram.

    That's what the Paper Clips just offered.

    Wagner, Kuz and filler ain't gonna get it done.

    Damn good point. IMO if I were the Lakers I would wait it out and try to sign Kawhi next year.

    From what I've heard, if they sign Boogie, it would be a short term max deal. That way they can walk away if he can't play.

    I didn't thnk they'd have the money, but a sportstalk guy I was listening to earlier seemed to think they could clear the space to sign Kawhi next year.

    To be fair, I didn't hear how he proposed they could do that. the only way I could think of would be a 1 and 1 with a team option on the 2nd year. But that would mean they lose Boogie to gain Kawhi. If there's another way, I don't know what it would be.

    I don't know much about Smith's situation, but overpaying TT was the right move at the time, regardless of whether or not Lebron had a hand in it.

    TT wasn't worth what he got to anyone but the Cavs because there are plenty of guys who could provide what TT does for a lot less. But even if they let him walk, they still wouldn't have had the cap space to sign a cheaper alternative. So, they had to overpay the guy they had.

    Yeah, I expect that it the Lakers get Kawhi, Ingram's gone as part of the deal.

    Smith was the same thing.

    It was either pay Smith or get somebody on a vet min. And Smith was an FA re year after they won. It was literally a no brainer.

    Hill and Smith are gone after this year....after that the only contracts the Cavs really have are Korver- which is emmintently movable at about 7M, Clarkson at 1 year 13M which shouldnt be impossible to move, and then of course Thompson at 1 year 18M which wont be easy to move.
