Slight preview of after NBA final in Staple Center?  >:D

It was the fight that broke the internet!  :D

It had the following: Paul poked Rondo’s eye, Both Rondo and Paul threw punches at each other, and Brandon Ingram pushed James Harden then he threw a punch at Chris Paul. LeBron was the peacemaker. As the crowd were chanting Rondo after the ejection and during the post game recap!!

It wouldn’t be preview of NBA finals because they are both from the same conference. (1 team from the west and east goes to the finals)

Deep recap and analysis. I was saying this.

I'm not worried that Lakers are 0-3 with Lebron.

Just like when he went to Miami and then back to Cleveland, it will take some time for everyone to get used to each other. And it's not like they are playing scrubby Eastern conference teams.

I think Lonzo's shot is better, a bit quicker on the release... but still ugly and wildly inconsistent.  They are going to need some shooting to keep defensive sets honest... BI looks okay but still very immature (as noted by his run-in punch on CP3)... not sure he can evolve to KD level other than being skinny and tall.

I still think they are playoff bound... it just won't be as easy in the West. I thought Spurs would be their first win but I guess this shows what a good coach Pop is.

Agreed. I'm looking for them to compete, and in each of the first three games, opportunities existed in Q4 to win. Zo's stats look very good, and his effort level and effectiveness on D look even better.

Hart needs to play 30 minutes and KCP needs to play 15. I don't think Zubac will be developing into anything. He's gone after this season. We struggled against bigs in Denver and San Antonio. Not a problem that'll be fixed any time soon...

Phoenix to waive Tyson Chandler and then sign with the Lakers.

I was hoping to trade for him this offseason! This is pretty awesome. Depth at center was our biggest need (assuming the rookie for Michigan won't be able to contribute too much).

So, uh... AD coming to LA?

Who would you trade for him? Everyone?

I would give up Lonzo, BI and whoever else... just keep Kuz.

I'd give any of the younger guys up, just need to pick up another decent PG along the way when the roster clears up. We don't need Melo if there is a seat open, need more depth at the PG position, can't have Alex Caruso come off the bench running point.

I don't think Lakers need a good PG, just someone in that position because LBJ or Rondo can run the offense.

Melo would actually work (I know he's a ball stopper) because it's just another scorer other teams need to worry about and he's LBJ's buddy... gotta keep The King happy. :)

Think he'd be plenty happy if they got AD.   I get you could run offense through Rondo and Lebron, but Rondo hasn't been in more than half the games in a Laker uniform this season IIRC, and Lebron is coming off his longest stretch of missed time due to injury. Best to relieve all some of the responsibility and get someone decent out there in case Rondo gets injured again and to keep Lebron's minutes down so he can go all out in the Playoffs.

If they kid AD then I think Lakers don’t need McGee and Chandler.

Hopefully they keep Zubak.

Just pick up guys from the G-League.

Bron, Brow and 3 scrubs can make the playoffs. :)

Make the playoffs yes, but I'd rather they make a deep run in the playoffs and not get knocked out in the first round with the 3 scrubs.   :)

Lonzo's camp is tampering with the AD trade by projecting that he's not interested in playing for the Pelicans. Makes him an undesirable trade to the Pelicans which makes it hard for the Lakers to gain value out of him.

Makes sense for his camp to say that, I'm sure Lonzo's dad doesn't want a smaller market either...BBB! 

Another rumor is that Klay may want to come to the Lakers if they get AD.  It's time to let go of all their younger guys if they want to win now.
