I dont think Irving can overcome being in cleveland - maybe when he comes to the Lakers in a couple seasons his outlook will change

I'm so mad because I can't really argue that there's no way he'll go.


I mean hey, Nash and possibly Kobe will be gone, Gasol will be on the downswing, and its the Lakers, so why no just gift them a star. Its what happens.

you can see it, Howard + plus cap space + D'Antoni's PG friendly system + Gilbert being Gilbert, it's going to happen

By the time Kyrie can get to LA, Howard will be a shell of himself.

Where as I see Rose and Kyrie more as a score first PG, although they dish out very well as well. Just not like CP3.
He's NOT a pass first pg though and I'm shocked you would argue otherwise. I didn't say CP wasn't an elite penetrator (still). Just that he picks his spot and is just as likely to nail a step back j or teardrop. Lillard doesn't have that kind of change of pace.

Lillard is a nice player, but doesn't have elite potential in my opinion. It'll be Irving or Rose.

Re: 5 years from today the best PG will be?

Rose is the best point guard alive and if he comes back healthy it will probably be him. Paul, if he can stay healthy, and Irving/Rubio will probably be in the conversation. Maybe Westbrook too.

They can match any offer he gets as an RFA, but as I indicated I doubt there's any chance he even reaches restricted free agency. I expect that he'll sign that early over-max extension and pocket the money. So he won't hit unrestricted free agency until after his 7th or 8th year. Which, re-reading the thread, was Memphis' point. In five or six years Superman won't be.

Re: 5 years from today the best PG will be?

Its easy to put up numbers on a bad team. I like guys with playoff experience.

I pick Jrue Holiday or Eric Bledsoe. Jrue is so much younger and already in control of the team. Clippers have to make a decision on Bledsoe and some team may want to pay him more.

Funny how John Wall is no where on the list ?? LOL
