Good read by Pincus. He makes an interesting proposition. Would Lebron be willing to take less if it meant filling out the roster to make it more competitive?? I doubt it but still an interesting idea.

Also, I really REALLY hope we extend and stretch Deng if we can’t ship him out with the Cleveland pick.

This is the difference between Scientist and NBA Experts:
Kyle Irving Trade in summer:
Experts: Cavs A+, Celtics: C-
Scientist: Cavs D-, Celtics A

Thomas Trade this week:
Experts: Lakers A+, Cavs: C-
Scientist: Lakers C-, Cavs A +

Experts opinions:
1. Lakers have a chance to sign LeBron and George in 2018, and Kawhi Leonard in 2019 free agency.
2. In 2017, Thomas won the all-nba 2nd team award, exactly same as Durant and Curry.
3. Lakers lost 2018 first round pick to Celtics, has already got it back.

Scientist opinions:
1. LeBron believe that Ingram and Ball are not ready to win the nba championship. chance 20%.
2. Scientist believe that Thunder and Spurs don't want Paul George and Kawhi Leonard to meet with Lakers in free agency. chance: 0%.
3. Lakers got Cavs protected first round pick (little value), not comparable to Lakers pick owned by Celtics.

Why Cavs get A and Celtics get F?
Cavs have improved a lot, which means they can defeat Celtics in the playoffs.

A quality post from BS???

DaRizzle say Lebron doesnt need to be the answer for the Lakers. You failed to mention Klay and Jimmy being FA next offseason.

DaRizzle believe Anthony Davis is ready to demand a trade....you heard it here first. Remember this. DaRizzle believe he should be primary target if possible.

DaRizzle belives in Ryan West. Ryan West has consistently found gems deep in the draft including 2nd rounders. Little DaRizzle met little West on Fourm court in 80s. Little West wouldnt let little DaRizzle shoot ball.

DaRizzle notice hate for Lakers is getting stronger. DaRizzle knows that means experts getting scared.

too bad he cant play D
Of course true...read somewhere he had the worst D rating in the last 25 years...BUT

The entire team sucked ass on D last game. Notable is that they still gave up a shit-ton of points when IT was on the bench.

I was semi-hating on IT after the Mavs game. He certainly causes holes in the defense that other players arent used to cover for yet. Overall he was a positive on the court and the majority of his shots were in the flow of the offesnse.

He did shit the bed at the end of the 3rd and 4th qtr though. Lakers could have had easy 2 for 1's at the end of each quarter and he botched both of those up badly.

He and the team will only get better together.

God I want the playoffs...fucking Jazz wont stop winning

well that plus Nance really is a plus defender and at least Clarkson has the size and the athleticism to be able to switch more fluidly means a net negative to the team defense - they can compensate as the Cs did last year but that's going to take some learning
