    Meh - Give Magic a chance. I'm sure he has lots of people to lean on and he's already making some good moves. Besides - the guy is pretty brilliant at most things other than coaching.

    I think that was true until Jeanie cleaned house. Jeanie-Magic-Pelinka seem pretty aligned to me, at least so far.

    By 2018 our lineup will be...Ball at the point, George at 2, Ingram at sf, LeBron at the 4, and Cousins at center...then we pass the green weenies for total chips...happy days are here again :yay::pillowfight::yess:

    Eh, I like Clarkson as the shooting guard. Hasn't he proved enough?

    He's a fine player, but he's not Paul George.

    Clarkson could be a 6th man on a playoff team, but he makes too much money ($12 million) to afford that Big 3. Hart will take his spot, and they may keep KCP, who is better than Clark anyway.

    His $12M isn't that bad if he can become Lou Williams 2.0. I think adding KCP makes Clarkson more viable, not less. Clarkson doesn't have to worry about guarding all the "predator" twos in the league and can just focus on being a scoring point guard off the bench. He'll never be a lockdown defender but he could certainly become adequate, especially if he's only charged with guarding second-stringers.

    Here's hoping. As it is the Greenie Peenie Weenies are a helluva lot closer to a 'chip than we are. That said the NBA tends to change quickly. This could be a pretty exciting time here in the next 12-18 months.

    Hey now! Buck us lol. You know you want another Boston/LA finals!

    Hoping we can take the Brooklyn pick and that other pick I forgot who's pick....hmm is it the Laker pick, yes the Lakers pick and turn it into K Irving now that he wants out of Cleveland.

    All kidding aside by 2020 we could be looking at some Laker/Celtics finals again. Those are always fun!

    I was hoping that'd catch your eye! :)

    And yes I'd love another Boston/LA finals.

    I think the Cavs will find a way to move LeBron first, since Kyrie is their only long-term hope.

    It did lol. They really should, but that's probably why he wants out. Probably like Lebron is leaving next year, don't want to be stranded here. Smart play by Irving by the way. It will never happen but would to see him in Boston.

    Lakers are gonna make that pick worthless by making the playoffs next year. That's right, I said PLAYOFFS...

    Lonzo Ball is the Way, the Truth, and the Light :wow:

    I actually think your right lol. If the Laker pick does not land there we get Sacramento's first in 19. Ball looks legit and looks like he is going to make you guys better for sure.

    He'll make it more fun, that's for sure. Losing sucks, but losing boring is the even worse. Hey that sounds kinda like our Rams!

    Lol, I honestly expected them to lose that pick by now. I think they'll be just good enough to give you guys that pick.

    They tanked enough the past few years to acquire some talent in the draft. Its probably about time they give up that pick.

    Ball looks like the real deal. While I don't think Randle and Ingram will be superstars or anything like that, they will be dependable, solid players. If Ball eventually becomes that superstar, I can see them competing on a regular basis. Still a couple years away, but I think the talent is there.

    Probably means LeBron will go to the Lakers next year. No reason for him to stick around for a rebuild in Cleveland.

    Not sure I want LeBron on the Lakers, dude has a lot of mileage and I can't stand his complaining and flopping.

    Did not see that coming. They sure gave up a lot though, never thought they'd give up that Brooklyn!
