I'm still in line with the thinking Pelicans will not trade AD to us under any why not try the opposite and give them James to appease AD. Klutch gets to basically run the pelican as they see fit from top to bottom, we get #1 and #4 with a cleared deck of any drama queens, accelerated time line, etc. Maybe it becomes more appealing for Leonard to come as he'll be the de-facto star with a whole bunch of cost controlled talents. Just something to for debate, not that it'll happen but would still be a good future for us. Discuss.....

Closed the coaching search thread. Frank Vogel is the choice. Let the criticisms commence!

Hello everyone,
since I have been getting a lot of inquires about a variety of Laker topics, thought it might be best to create a dialogue here. Happy to respond to the best of my knowledge. If I don't know the answer, I will do my best to ask and find out (this may take a few days, as I am currently traveling). Please do take info with a grain of salt. Basketball rumors are rumors for a reason! And I have been told info that did not materialize in the past! ;)

I wanted to bring this topic up for debate. Its seems our FA plan is 2max or we can't be true contenders. To counter that, some may or may not agree with me but out of the 7 remaining teams (NOT counting GSW) in the playoffs, only 1 has 2 true max players (Hou, Harden/CP3). Den does not have 2 true max, I dont even consider Jokic a true max guy but he's the only one on Den that's on max deal, Bucks only have 1 max (greek), Phi has 1 max (Embiid) but I'm guessing Simmons will eventually get maxed, Tor only has 1 max (Leonard) as I dont consider Lowry a true max player either, Bos only has 1 max (Irving), I understand Gordon is paid as a Max player but his contribution currently is NOT a max lvl player, Por only has Dame on a max deal (i think). So with that said, why do we continue that stance with our FA plans IF we miss out again this yr on a max lvl FA, i.e. cont. 1yr signing and rolling the cap again? GSW is the exception to the rule, NO team can replicate what they have...
