    First reaction: wtf

    Hmm. . Not really ecstatic about this dude but I don't mind having a knuckle head harassing Durant or Klay or Harden.

    But he can't shoot and is a potential locker room issue. But with LeBron we now have a leader who probably owns the locker room and can keep him in check.

    Terrible , Maginka was still probably celebrating Lebron decision .

    Exception should have been used on Lopez

    I would have preferred Napier by a landslide.

    It's inevitable we get enforcers

    We still have a need for a backup PG. Napier could still possibly be had for a minimum deal, Portland just let him walk, and I haven’t seen his name linked to any other teams.

    This guy is a riot. Feels like the kind of guy we're going to appreciate.

    Every good championship team needs that crazy guy thats willing to mix it up. Be scrappy in the playoffs.

    Like I said yesterday. There are going to be a lot of time this next year that we like him and are laughing at his antics and other times we're yelling at the TV or through the forums to slow down and relax out there.

    I forgot who first said it on here but the comparison to getting Matt Barnes when Kobe was here is a carbon copy to this.

    Yeah, there is a long line of championship crazies that contributed more than stats to their teams:

    Rodman / Artest / Draymond are the best examples. Lance would fit right in with those guys.

    Conflicting tweets about his defense on the perimeter? Which is it .... bad or good?

    I saw him in the Cleveland series, looked good on Defense from me.

    Plus, he will be an asset to get into Draymonds head should they meet in the playoffs.

    That stat him as the worst perimeter player in the league.

    It isn't for a lack of effort; but he just isn't very good.

    This was mostly a locker room signing. He adds moxie and as a bonus can give you some mins; he is versatile, can handle a bit. Etc.

    I absolutely HATE this signing. Literally, hate this signing.

    All is forgiven though since we got LeBron...but seriously wtf were we thinking with this?

    I don't see anything good about this signing at al...somebody make me feel better about it?

    Is he going to be our back up PG? Ugh.
