A number of us have made clear how vehemently opposed we would be to bringing in 35 year old LBJ in 2018 if he's wanting to come to L.A. to chase more rings. Others couldn't care less about who this guy is personally because of how great a player (albeit old player by then) he is and if it means we win a ring.

What if Westbrook stays healthy, gives it his Kobe like left everything on the floor again this coming season and it's of course still not enough? He's now hypothetically open to recruiting overtures from Magic, Rob, Luke, Kobe and fellow UCLA alumnus Lonzo Ball.

Seems to me, aside from the fact I would be out of my mind thrilled to see RW here over LBJ and could root like no other for that team ..... that Westbrook would be the much better fit and add as much or more of a winning dynamic to the squad than James. Mamba like mentality. Plus be younger and motivated to be home again and have a chance at his first ring, plus...

Oh well...pretty mad, so I want to voice my displeasure in a new thread so that it doesn't go down unnoticed....

The Lakers killed their entire momentum...everything that worked out so well for them ever since the all-star break went down the drain with the trading of Russell and Mozgov for Lopez and Kumaz or whatever the dude is called.

It seems like we went back a few years with this single move. The front office did exactly the opposite of what they were preaching in the months before. Patience, stick to the youth and not mortgage the future for shortterm glory. And then they come up with the most insane idiotic asinine trade that I could have imagined.

Maybe they knew something we didn't know...oh well I get it. But if that is the case, why the F would you drive down Russell's market and KILL any value he has before trading him for pennys on the dollar. Has any #2 pick ever been treated worse than Russell was? Constantly questioning him even though overall he was our most...
