The Clippers defense is going to be very very legit with Kawhi, PG13 and P. Beverly. These guys are going to harass opponents, especially at the top and perimeter.

They have no answer for AD though.
Re: The NBA Begins by Nobody: 2:07pm On Jul 06, 2019
Get Mook, Bradley and korver and i am 100 percent fine with free agency. Give mook whats left of our cap, bradley the level exception and korver the min. Fill out the rest of the roster with melo and other bums.



Lets see these fools keep the same energy once the season starts. The ceiling was so high these dweebs think we've fallen all the way down. LOL!

But they have 2 neutralizers for LeBum in either PG13 or Kawhi. Neither LeBum nor AD is capable of playing 70 games, if they dare such, there will be nothing left for the postseason.

See, this has rendered all those Chris Broussard and co as false journalists that I knew they were. Chris Broussard collected money from the Lakers to sell the propaganda about Kawhi. I knew it when he started going to shows saying the Lakers were the best fit for him. This is the same Broussard who would not stop hounding KD. He has lost my respect.
i used to believe he is intelligent and not bias.He is the only sport Analyst I follow on Instagram.Dude just lost all the respect I got for him.

No such thing as a lebron neutralizer. This is why getting mook and bradley is important, our rim protection is solid with AD and Javale but Mook and bradley in addition to Green will make our perimiter defense solid as well. Mook especially gives us someone we can put on Kawhi or PG. Well Kawhi, PG is going to choke when he sees his dad anyway.


PS ADs best playoff run came after a 70 game season and he torched the blazers and won one against the warriors.

There would be some GM willing to gamble on Westbrick. I guarantee it. They should trade him

I'm telling you.

But PG is better off in LA, after all, they've been longing to play at home.

The Clippers have depth, a second unit, and owner that doesn't want drama.



imagine, Lou is still coming from bench shocked

Danny Green? You are banking on this same D. Green we just watched? Lol, dude is washed up and done as far as I concerned and I mean on both ends. I would rather have 1 leg Iggy than this D. Green. Mook is perhaps the only respectable name and maybe Bradley. I do agree Javale that the Lakers interior game looks good.

More crucially is that LeNomad cannot guard a paraplegic right now so it's smooth sailing on offense as well. Wait they still have Lou Williams off the bench??

LeBum has lost significant lateral movement especially on defense and I saw clips and instances last season where he was just uninterested in playing any D. Oh!!!!!! Sweet Lou!!!!

Danny almost singlehandedly won game 3 for the Raptors. Hes a career 40% 3 point shooter and shot 46% from 3 last year and his scoring average also increased from the last two previous years, i dont know what you are talking about. His defense too is still solid, the Lakers FO maybe dumb but they're not that dumb. They overpaid yes, but hes not a complete bum. Green, Mook, Bradley and I forgot about KCP too, and our perimeter defense will be fine.

These niggas paid $15 for Danny green. Look, I am happy a black man is getting his bag tho

LOL Zubac was a bum until LeBron started spoon feeding him. He went to the Clippers and turned into a bum again. I don't think they'll even re-sign him. Harrell is tough but AD will light him up easy.

Lebrons defense is not about movement but mostly lack of effort. Hes always stepped up in the playoffs though always tries to guard a teams best player down the stretch. He can even keep up with guards if he wants to. Its just about surrounding him with enough defensive help to coast during the regular season.
Re: The NBA Begins by Nobody: 2:46pm On Jul 06, 2019
Beware the return of the king.

Re: The NBA Begins by Nobody: 2:48pm On Jul 06, 2019
I like that the lakers FO have so far gone after the 3 and D players. This has always been the recipe to win with lebron and they will get loads of open looks with him and AD on the PnR. Great improvement from last years sh.it show.

I think Kawhi to the Clippers is the best move for the NBA. As a fan of the Lakers I lowkey didn't want Kawhi to come, cos after thrashing the Warriors for 3 years it would be hypocritical of me to want a superteam of three top five players.

Kawhi coming to Lakers was only going to leave a dent on whatever championships LeBron was going to win (you can see what's going on with KD). And I couldn't bear to see LeBron take the backseat for anyone, like we all thought he'd do for Kawhi.

And for those who think we don't have a squad, chill. Raptors won the chip with basically 8 players, including one superstar. We have 2 superstars, and there's still some good role players in the market. We've already gotten Green, KCP and Javale. Add Rondo and one more player and we good. If that is done, we'd have;
LeBron
AD
Kuzma
Green
Rondo
Javale
Daniels
Dudley
Caruso
Williams
KCP
Morris/Cousins.
Talen

Laugh all you want at this roster, but we're winning with this.

Now we can all sit back, relax and watch the best of LeBron James without any form of restriction. And AD, phew, watch out for those pick n rolls. Enjoy a wonderful 2019/2020 season. See you in the playoffs.
LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL. IF U DON'T GEDDIFOK.

According to Woj, Sam Presti pursued a deal that would send Russell Westbrook and Paul George to the Raptors for Pascal Siakam, but Masai Ujiri couldn't match the haul of draft picks the Clippers were willing to sacrifice to unite George and Kawhi Leonard. �

The team i'm most scared of? The Jazz.


The pelicans and the suns will also be intriguing to watch. They're my wildcards to make the playoffs.
