Los Angeles Lakers Thread: Lakers Nation 2019 and Beyond

Welcome to the new home of Lakers Nation

The circus 2018/19 pig of season without lipstick ain't over yet but Lakers nation is moving on to a new thread and another era. Who will survive the offseason purge/retooling?

facts from https://lakeshowlife.com/2019/03/18/los-angeles-lakers-2019-best-case-worst-case-offseason-scenarios/:

  • The Lakers are estimated to have just over $38 million to spend this offseason.
  • The Lakers will have eight players under contract going into the summer.
  1. LeBron James
  2. Lonzo Ball
  3. Brandon Ingram
  4. Moritz Wagner
  5. Kyle Kuzma
  6. Josh Hart
  7. Isaac Bonga
  8. 2019 1st round draft pick
  • According to www.espn.com’s trade machine the Lakers cannot make a 2-team trade for Anthony Davis over the summer unless they offer LeBron James to the Pelicans, because the combined money of Ball, Ingram, Wagner, Kuzma, Hart, Bonga, and a 1st round pick between 8-13 isn’t enough to match AD’s salary. That means it will be very hard for the Lakers to trade for AD unless they make a 3-team deal or they get really creative.
  • The same is true for Bradley Beal or any other player making $25 million or more next season.

most likely to end up banking on hope that a top free agent + other back-ups will come to help

worst case you end up with DeAndre Jordan + KCP/Bullock + meme team vets
decent case, Boogie Cousins or Jimmy Butler + 3/D players
best case, elite free agents, no need to mention who they are #tampering

where will the Lakers lottery pick end up?

also, who will be the coach? will changes be made in the front office too? will the circus continue to get worse or get better? so many questions moving forward

    new thread yes. wala na yung labron sa title. :lol:

    that block by hezonja was epic. kabit na kabit. :lol:

    saw jimmy butler's clutch shot vs celtics. epic pose lol. ganun dapat, hindi natataranta pag winning time. he knows what to do. mamba mentality. wala akong pinapatamaan ah. 

    on the other hand, celtics are going downhill.

    LaBron Lakers Thread started on 2014 and ended on 2019. how pages were done in 2019 all because of the invasion of LeBronTards?

    https://www.pinoyexchange.com/discussion/705032/labron-lakers-thread-gotta-believe-in-miracles-playoffmodeactivated



    2019 cap space: +66.1M

    it is not enough to get 2 max players and 5 vets to fill up the 15 man roster. they need to trade (LOSERBall + BIngram +1st round draftpick) package. but no team is too dumb to bite that bait especially, Ball and Ingram are now injured.



    pasok LeBronTards ... :look_at_the_time:

    uy uy ..... ang bilis kumagat sa bait.

    kaya bang mag-5K comment itong bagong thread sa 365days?



    psst ..... i was rooting for the Lakers since the start of the old thread but i never cheered for LOSERBall. i cheered for BIngram and KKuzma. does that make me bias too?

    feeling ko .... maghahanap uli ng trade bait si GMEJohnson para kay AnthonyDIVAs.


    trade value:
    LeGOAT = 200%
    KKuzma = +80% (cheap, long contract and healthy)
    1st round draft pick = +60% (if it is 9th or 10th)
    JHart = +40% (cheap, long contract buth bad knees)
    LOSERBall = ZERO (expensive, long contract and injured)
    BIngram = -25% (possible career ending blood clot illness)


    GMEJohnson does not have too many assets except for LeBest Player in DaWorld. no wonder, KLeonard is mum about the postgame comment from LeCHOKE.

    It's another sad sad, day for the dedicated brontards, espn, yahoo, abs-cbn and the rest of the media world.

    It's going to be even sadder if during the playoffs and the finals, the media brontards will still talk about their loser idol kahit tanggal na siya. It's going to be very hard for the biased media brontards not to talk about him as it will be mission impossible for them. :loser:

    I dont have a very positive outlook in the summer of this season in terms of signing people who will really help this team forward. Let's be honest, the Lakers are a sh*th0le right now, and even if they have a decent amount of money to throw around, it's that constant toxic environment reminiscent of the weeks and days leading to the trade deadline this year which will be a huge turn-off for free agents.

    Magic and Rob need to rethink their strategies. They were not only eliminated from the 2019 Playoffs, they are also still on course to finish the season with an even worse record than LAST YEAR. Yeah, think about that. This team is currently no better than last year's team that featured only 2 has-been All Stars (Luol Deng and Brook Lopez) and only 2 bench guys with championship experience (Andrew Bogut and Channing Frye). Shocking :lol:

    I know that the realistic expectations were not really very high from the get-go, but not being any better than the 35-47 team last year with only 10 games left to play this season is just utter disaster.

    Crazy to think that the Clippers might still be the better LA team for the foreseeable future.

    Very disappointing season for this team. Lakers fans thought upon signing lebron at least they will compete in the playoffs. 
  • gotta lick itgotta lick it Member PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    in the 2017-18 season, the Lakers were 8(W)-12(L) on their first 20 games.
    they were only 11(W)-9(L) on their first 20 games in the 2018-19 season.



    adding LeBest Player in DaWorld was a slight improvement. it is a sign that they need to form a BIG3 because LeGOAT cant or wont carry this team.
