    Top free agents have the chance of a lifetime time to catapult their careers and have an easier time establishing their legacies. You have the chance to join the best and most willing passer of the top five players of all time in LBJ. Also by joining LBJ, your not hoping to competing for championships, but your guaranteeing that you’ll be there the next 5 years, if LBJ gets what he wants. The best decision that top two flight free agents can make is to join the Lakers and create history.
    Be part of the team that stops a dynasty and starts a dynasty at the same time. I don’t know if it’s only me, but I’m pretty tired of GS’s laughing at the rest of the league and free agents that are not as smart as they are. The reason they’re in the finals for the 5th straight year, is because they put the personal glory backseat to team success by joining forces to have FIVE all stars in the starting lineup. Teams are lying to themselves if they think they can make one major move and some minor moves to beat GS. The ONLY reason that the Raptors are up 2/1 is because of injuries to GS.
    So by making little moves the only hope is that GS players get injured for others to have a chance, unless there are two top free agents smart enough to see what’s happening and know the only way to permanently beat GS is to join forces with a player that has had success against GS during their run. And he had that success before they picked up the best shooter in the game and one of the best centers in the game. DC will only get better, it takes time coming back from injuries. GS are smart enough to make moves every year, because they don’t want this run to end. There are NO teams with the rosters they have that can beat GS four games. And there are NO potential teams with all the talk about the Clippers, Knicks, Nets that have a chance of beating GS four games in a series. The only way any of these teams have a chance is for GS to have major injuries. The real permanent option is for KL and KD to make a bold move and join LBJ. You don’t have to worry about whose team it is, look at GS , as an example of when top players play together, it isn’t Curry’s team, it’s a bunch of talent that think of the team success more than individual success.
    Joining LBJ, it would be three friends having fun stopping a dynasty while starting a dynasty.
    #1 you’d WIN🏆’s
    #2 you’d get paid
    #3 you’d live in LA
    #4 you’d play for a historic franchise
    #5 have the game be easier the rest of your career

      Wow, shots fired at Sacramento kings. Me personally, I think the kings are doing a great job putting things together, but why give all the credit to
      New Orleans Pelicans who is about to enter a rebuild

                  The media in general, vastly understimate Barett. The Pels xould rather go for him in a trade with NY than go for trading Lonzo, Ingram or/and Kuzma

                    Golden State is an unbelievable team that can beat every team in the league except for one. Any team that Lebron is on. Lebron controls the tempo and limits mistakes giving GSW less fastbreaks and he can get to the basket anytime he wants. Enter KD! The only purpose of KD is to give the GSW an edge over Lebron James. Too much fire power with KD added. Remove KD all you have is a GSW winning all but championship. Lebron is aging now but he really is that dominant.

                            Sometimes people just talk to just talk. Nick shut up. RJ B is not just an unknown player. Warriors is not better without kd. And stop begging for AD Davis to play with your boy king James.

                              Blazers played an awful defense against Steph and I love Steph but Please don’t put him on a pedestal again just to be dismantled if KD doesn’t come back for the finals.

                                  Clearly ESPN NBA "analyst" don't follow all of the NBA. For that reason alone, we should all (including me) should stop watching these vids. They offer nothing but what the masses want to hear

                                        Lonzo is not better than Dennis Smith Jr. That's a foolish statement.

                                              I'm Lakers I go hard at Kemba Walker, trade Ball to Phoenix for 6th pick , or bulls for 7th , offer 4th 6th or 7th or Ball , Ingram , Hart ,for Anthony Davis but not getting kuzma ,

                                              Walker , James , Davis and if enough money also sign a Danny Green but I doubt it after the big 3 deals

                                                Trading superstar to the same conference you are in would be stupid. Lakers have no attractive assets. Cut the BS.

                                                                                    Don’t let the mainstream media blind u. I’d rather have what the Knicks could offer for AD. The 3rd pick, which should be Barrett, not sure what Nick Wright is talking about, putting him as a crapshoot pick, he was the consensus #1 pick b4 Zion came to college. The Knicks have six 1st round picks the next 4 years cause of the Porzingis trade and Knox and Mitchell Robinson showed promise at only 19 years old. Dennis Smith Jr has shown potential. That is better than what the Lakers have.
