    KD put on a few, not a lot.

    But, enough....

    Signing both would make them a contender. Signing just one, would not.

    I do agree with your point about the chemistry of the team. That's why whether they get any FA's or not...I'm good with it either way.

    The more I think about it, the more I think Kuzma will take LeBron's spot in the starting line up. Being tied for the team lead in scoring, on a 35 win team, means you're awesome.

    Yeah, if Ingram can do the same, he'll be fine.

    KD and Anthony Davis have the same issue. Ingram will never be a bruiser, he just needs to be able to hold his ground like those 2 now can.

    LA was a draw to Mozgov & Deng.

    It's never good when your GM acts like a homer fan.

    LA is definitely a draw. So is New York. And Miami. But so is winning and that one is a much bigger one.

    Hmmm. Maybe. I think it would make them a contender for WCF defeat. Without a big step up from the young guys, and assuming that Randle left, the Lakers roster with Lebron and PG seems a lot like the Cavs roster but you replace Love with PG and the over the hill but experienced guys on the Cavs with the young and inexperienced guys on the Lakers. Lakers would be even thinner than the Cavs.

    Yeah I think you should trust what Magic & Co are doing. They seem to have a plan. I don't think they would mortgage the future to bring in two vets and make an unlikely run.

    LaMarcus Aldridge showed what the Lakers pitch was about when he said after the meeting that he wanted to talk about basketball and they were pitching Hollywood.

    For players today, LA is still a draw, but they also know they don't HAVE to go there for marketing purposes.

    It's more of a tiebreaker now. Everything else being relatively equal, being in LA gives the Lakers an edge. But things need to be a lot more equal now than they used to.

    I don't think it would necessarily require a big jump. Natural progression should be enough. Ingram was much better this year than last. Should be able to continue that.

    Because of how he plays, Lonzo doesn't really need a big jump as far as his passing, rebounding and defense. He still needs to improve his shot, but the presence of Lebron and PG would remove much of the urgency.

    Yeah, Magic basically said it's land a whale or 2 this off-season or wait until next off-season. He said they aren't going to spend money just to spend money.
