Sad to see him go....but with McDermott here. he wasnt going to play.

Glenn was unlucky..Had he been healthy last season, held have played a lot and we'd' have valued him

Hopefully, he'll get another chance in Detroit

I don't hate the signing as you can never have too many three point shooters, but we pretty much already have a player just like him in Bog. I'm not sure what he will add more than what we get from Bog. We will see I guess.

He'll back up Bogdonavich....we'll always have a shooter on the floor..like you say.

..and Bogdonavich is at the end of his contract

4 reasons why I like the signing:

1. Like you said we will always have a shooter on the floor (McDermott is a 40% career 3 point shooter) and if Bogey is off, then if McDermott is on it offsets Bogey having a bad day.

 

2. McDermott is a Chemistry player, he wont disrupt our Great Chemistry.

 

3. We got him for cheap. 

 

4. He's only 26.

Golden State is showing interest in Tyreke Evans

Apparently, their general manager used to be Evans' agent..

.but all they have is %5.3 mil..mid-level exception

 

Im not finding anything that says we're making an offer

I havent seen anything either. I wonder if we just bring Lance back?

That makes the most sense...Our coaches know him..our players know him

..Lance played every game last season...and he played hard.

We don't make the playoffs without him

 

He can play 1, 2 or 3....we lack depth at the '3' and we're a little soft without him.

He stands up against Toronto and Cleveland..and those are our key rivals

Yeah I heard about that, even though were plenty of entertaining times in the playoffs Pacers vs Heat/Cavs, ect I'm glad to get him out of the East.  That being said, man the West is much more competitive.  Rockets, Warriors, ect will still be hard teams for him to get past.  On the other hand Pacers should be in contention for the East next year if they continue to progress.

East will definitely be the Celtics, Pacers and Sixers to lose. Maybe Toronto but its hard to take them serious until they win something.

Yeah I agree, Celtics will still be the dominate East team but I do feel the Pacers and Sixers as well should be up there.  Yeah the Raptors lol!  They'll win 50+ games and take a dump in the first or second round.  

Now the question is who else will the Lakers get to pair with LBJ?

LeBron going to Los Angeles is good for the Eastern Conference. 

 

Already sick to my stomach on how many bandwagon Lakers fans there are on social media. Gross.

Yeah, definitely will be interesting. That gives them 3 guys that need the ball in their hand. Makes me wonder what the intentions with Ball are? Maybe he is on the move?

Jim Buss and Mitch Kupcake ruined the best franchise of all-time over the last 5 years. Magic Johnson comes in and in his first year signs a Top 5 player of all-time LOL. Lakers will make the Playoffs now at least. 

.If the trade for Chris Paul (that the NBA blocked) goes through, the Lakers dont go through the down years

Big winners:

Magic Johnson: He got a star to come to L.A.

Dan Gilbert:   Gilbert can finally own a team where he doesn't pay millions to go over the salary cap and still get blamed for everything that he hasn't done

The Boston Celtics:  Its their turn to get back to the NBA finals

The Toronto Raptors:  They can actually believe they can win the Eastern Conference

Kevin Love:  He can finally stopped being ignored during his team's wins and blamed for their losses.

 

ESPN: They have a home base in Los Angeles

Unless LBJ changes his game dramatically....Lonzo will play a lot less

 

..and I dont think you pay a guy 38 mil a year to change his game dramatically

Predictions:  1.) Kyle Korver and JJ Reddick will be traded to the Lakers

2.) ESPN and TNT will cover a total of 'zero' Cavaliers games next year

3.) The 2019 NBA finals will match Houston and Boston

4.) Lance Stephenson will sign a free agent contract in the summer of 2019 to return to the Indiana Pacers

Aaron Gordon was always going back to the Magic and I knew GR3 wouldn't be back. Not too upset about losing Lance either.

 

Funny how many on here expected LeBron to stay and PG to go to LA and it was the opposite.

 

I don't think we have enough to sign Tyreke either. We still have a hole at backup SG and maybe backup PF unless TJ Leaf proves he's ready to play this season.

They spoke about moving Ball to the Spur.. they denied that.. no way Ball and Lebron can coexist the court lol. Lavar will be complaining the best player in the world controls the ball more than his "boy"

Makes one wonder if LeBron didn't want PG to go there. Because you know PG wanted too probably pretty badly.

I do not understand what Paul George did.

He told us he left here because he wanted to play in LA and he wanted to win, right?

 

OKC ..was out in the first round and the Lakers got LeBron...OKC is stuck with Carmelo so they cant add anything but low-cash boys. He knew that. So he still wants to say in OKC where they were the 5th seed...The Pacers were the 5th seed

So maybe he just didnt like our management.? Fine

With LeBron, the Lakers were at least the 3rd best team in the west...  Lance was going to the Lakers.

PG still stays in OKC. I'm confused.  In 3 or 4 years, LeBron will be retired and he can go to L.A.?

 

Unless he is just very, very comfortable in Russell Westbrooks shadow...and doesnt need to ever get to the finals

If that's it, more power to him...

So at this time, how much have the Pacers improved or declined?

Currently I don't see them being better than last year.   We'll see what other signing they make.  

Good question...

We basically swapped Lance and Joe Young for Doug McDermott and Aaron Holiday.

 

...I worry that we're soft..in a physical conference with Boston and Philadelphia

We need somebody like Marcus Smart

 

Meanwhile..on to the summer league

That's real/////    The Lakers who are welcoming LBJ may not understand that a couple of them have to turn into Kevin Love and Chris Bosh who had to forget about how good they were and go stand in the corner

....LaVar will be bad mouthing the dominant player of his era....

 

..and you are 1000% right... Popovich isnt even thinking about trading for Lonzo

I give PG some credit for staying with OKC.    Good for him.   He'll still be on a competitive team in the NBA West.   The fans will love him, and he won't have to play second fiddle to LeBron.   Another year of PG and Westbrook playing together should provide more stability.   They just need to get rid of Carmello, who they never should have brought in.

    • you’re correct, and I honestly don’t know why that’s the case lol.   i even remember the chiefs game and was thinking to myself how he may be our guy at FS.  He even had 4 picks in ‘22.   im definitely not going to go back and watch any film on him so I’ll write it off as me having blue colored shades on due to a 7th round rookie having some bright moments lol
    • FWIW:   The consensus around here is that Thomas had a nice rookie year for a 7th round pick out of the Ivy League.   But then he suffered through a very disappointing second season.      But for that crowd, here is a head scratcher from PFF.   Thomas’s grades are almost identical.  His second season might even be fractionally higher.  
    • I’m sorry, I agree with @Hoose on this one.  FS is a glaring weak spot for us right now.  Thomas regressed a lot last year.  Cross, he’s ok but I’m not sure if he’s the answer and I too would feel a lot better with Simmons back there.   I really don’t understand how our corners catch flak on here and the FSs get away clean lol.  Brents would grade out either ok or good when he played and Jones was getting recognition asking rookie corner.  Thomas was bad and cross would look solid and then would show us he’s not ready to be that safety blanket.  I will say, I do have some faith cross can be.  But Thomas, idk.  He was good first year, horrible last year.  
    • YOU are probably wrong regarding all of this.
    • Thomas was one of the few bright spots in 2022. I’m not sure why he regressed so much last year in both coverage and tackling.    Cross played good last year.  I’m not so sure he’s a FS though.  I always thought of him as more of a SS.  Having two safeties that can play both free and strong will help them disguise coverages though. Cross “Mossing” Pickens last year was impressive.  They traded up for him so they may feel now is the time for him or it never will be as a Colt.     I would feel better with Simmons or Diggs though.  I would also prefer a vet corner that pushes Baker off the 53.
