So get a bunch of lunatic players worthy of being on Hard Knocks, when they get suspended for antics, blame the coach for the losses without starters? The heck kind of crap is Magic trying to pull over here?

My first thought was wait a min this is nuts, doesn't this go against everything we were told all season regarding the expectations in year 1 and then it occurred to me, no that was the most commonly repeated suggestion from the media, I dont remember Magic actually echoing that. So I guess not surprising?

And people laughed at Cavs fans for feeling 'relief' after LBJ's departure.

Obviously, we'd rather have him than not, but there's no denying how annoying the circus is through the regular season when he's on your team.

And that's when we were generally WINNING in the East and in the playoff picture. I can't imagine the drama if we had LBJ and were losing.

It's gonna be a loooooong season for Lakers fans. Make the playoffs and it'll all be worth it, though.

Edit: Unless you're the 8th seed - then you'll just get swept by GS.

When things go south, the easiest move always is to fire the coach because at least that way, Magic doesn't have to own up to the fact he put together a crappy supporting cast. Expectations are always unreasonably high in Lakerland, and LBJ's presence escalates that to large degrees.......

same, would be a huge mistake to fire him so early on in the season. Definitely see how this year unfolds before making that move. His rotations last game was much better, hoping he found something with the starters and how his rotation went.

Actually its the lousy signings of Rondo,Lance. Also Butler said Lakers would of been a great destination for him next summer. At least until they signed LeBron. Guess maybe some bad blood between LeBron and Butler back in the days with Cavs/Bulls? Also seems odd Kawhi has Clippers and Raptors way ahead of LeBron's Lakers for a destination.

Who are the Lakers last hope for free agents? KD may stay with Warriors. Not sure if they can pry away Klay or not. Cousins last hope for Lakers? Warriors already said Cousin is just a one year deal. He wont be back at a discount again. AD already said he want Cousins back on the Pelicans next summer.

I think it's just because they don't want to deal with the circus that it is lebron. When you play with him you have to sacrifce your game, be blamed when you lose, not get credit when you win.

Yea, from a players perspective I can see some of the cons that come with lebron, constant trade rumors, constant hot seats, constant cryptic messages to the media where he reinforces that HE is doing HIS job... I'm sure kyrie loves his Boston situation much better than his lebron situation. Don't get why Cleveland traded him, he was their piece they coulda built around..

HPF! Haven't seen you on PSD in a while!

I do agree. I think I said it in the offseason but here's the Lakers timeline:
First 1/2 of the year, tread water.
At the deadline, they'll move 2-3 of these expiring deals to a team slightly worse for better role player.
Make the playoffs as the 6-8 seed with some of the young guys having a slight impact.
2019 Offseason, sign another star.
2019 Offseason/deadline, trade their youth for a 3rd star.
2020 playoffs be a top 3 seed.

The minute LBJ signed and PG stayed in OKC, there was a 1.5 year clock that started to click.

2019 offseason sign another star. Which star? KD sounds like he will stay with the Warriors. Butler said he loved the Lakers as a destination until LeBron signed there. So that leaves him out maybe. Kawhi has Clippers or Raptors as 1a and 1b. Klay? Doubt he leaves. Cousins maybe. Yeah Bill Simmons predicted Ball and KCP will be traded at the deadline for Lillard. Doubt Blazers do that. That's a bit lite.

Not so sure MJ parts with Kemba. How many more season's will Lakers sign one year deals to carry cap over to following years? That's wasting LeBron's time. Cavs could trade Love at trade deadline if they decide to tank. Right thing would of been LeBron stay with Cavs one more year while Lakers bottom out with another high lottery pick then sign with Lakers in 2019.

Magic Johnson jumped the gun for buying out Deng. He was the big salary filler packaged with the kids for a legit second star. But that's out the window. Lakers have to wait till trade deadline almost to trade any of the new free agents signings as in Rondo,KCP,Lance,Beasley as salary fillers. Unless they go after a cheap star like Kemba for Ingram and Ball.

But I think Michael Jordan will give Kemba the super max like CP3/Wall got. Kemba will be the lone franchise piece.

That's a very good comparison for Ingram, actually. He's exactly like Beasley. But I would still think the potential of Ingram, Ball, and Kuzma are far more valuable than Kemba - who really hasn't been winning anything in Charlotte to warrant that much talent.

I figure the only unrestricted free agent "stars" the Lakers have a chance at is getting Butler and Walker in S&Ts, and the combination would likely cost those 3 and more.

Then in that case trading Ingram, Ball, KCP and draft picks to New Orleans to get AD makes sense...AD can play the 5, JaVale at the 4 with Tyson Chandler coming off the bench with 2nd unit, LeBron at the 3, Kuzma or Hart at the 2 playing SG and Rondo at the 1 as your PG

that would be the best fit for the Lakers because not only can they get AD but also another top tier free agent next season. If that AD trade works out, I think they're already the favorites to win the championship. AD pretty much solves all their defensive issues since he's a great perimeter and interior defender and with the Javale pairing, he'll have a lot of help defensively. Pelicans are just a bad team right now without AD and he's already complaining about not having enough help. If AD pushes for it, I think it happens.
