    Like Cousins, this is another move that has potential to provide more value than what we paid. Its worth the "risk".

    Can't believe after all Rondo did last year (punching CP3 in the face) you would do him like this?

    Green, Cousins, Bradley, Dudley, and Cook. Those were really smart low budget FA acquisitions that have now added more punch to the roster.

    This beats prematurely exiting Kawhi-stakes and trying to overpay for middle class free agents and the likes of Kyrie and Kemba.

    As I said before that was something from kawhi-gate we should be thankful for. Kawhi thought he could sabotage us but he only made us deeper

    People are prisoners of the moment. Avery has a lot left in the tank. He was just in bad situations. Hes only 28

    So are we giving Pelinka credit for Bradley, or are we discrediting him because he basically just signed a former client of his?

    LOL the media just flat out destroyed Rob but winning cures all. Pelinka himself would probably prefer that he would operate in anonymity but we are the Lakers after all

    Lakers overloaded on Guards...
    Rondo, Caruso, KCP, Green, Bradley, Cooke & Daniels. My guess is, they’re gonna see who fits best & look to move the others at the trade deadline. Klutch knows this. That's why KCP got the No Trade Clause.

    It’s always impressive to me that Heinsohn is able to call games with a gullet full of clam chowdah.

    I read how he isn't what he used to be etc...the guy is 28. Its not like he is over the hill.

    I remember Kyrie Irving, when he was in Cleveland, saying nobody in the NBA can defend him as well as Bradley.

    He has had a couple of rough seasons and has been hurt multiple times. It doesn't mean he will rediscover his mojo but there is a solid chance he will.

    Look at the price. Bradley could easily command in the 10-15 mio. range if he was his old self and we would have no shot at him. We are paying him 4.9 mio. and he might.

    There is a reason the 2nd year is a player option. He obviously believes he can make more money elsewhere next year. Doesn't sound like a guy who thinks he is done.

    At the end of the day, we can only judge players off their recent form. For the last 3 years he has been dealing with issues and just hasn’t been the same player. Going off that amount of time and form, we aren’t getting an all team defensive player. However, his age provides some hope that he can pull it together if healthy and he hasn’t lost a step however.

    Credit since it's likely Bradley hated him too. ;)

    A very good addition to the squad the talk is that the Clippers have the edge because of their defence so this is shifting the balance of power to showtime lakers in my opinion.

    Seto is going to have her hands full, but let's hope she can get our guys right. Healthy Lebron, AD, Cousins, and Bradley all season? Give me that lineup with Danny Green all day.

    Still not clear if Judy is replacing Marco Nunez or if that is a separate vacancy still to be filled?
