I am a kings fan who is living and grew up in Laker land. But i do love basketball, though i am forced to watch my Kings play though horrible (free) online links, i do get to watch Laker games on the T.V. Though I am a HUGE Laker hater i do have to admit that the NBA is a lot more interesting when the lakers are decent. Now not saying that i like them top 4 in the West but bottom 4 in the west is fine with me! But as i drive around L.A Listening to sports talk, having conversations with my Laker fan friends. And ESPN keeps shoving down our throats that the Lakers will be BIG time players in FA next off season. Already 2 all-stars have decline the Lakers (Paul George and Carmelo)
Now i totally understand a LOT can happen in a season and BOTH players can change their minds (as NBA players often do) but who do you guys realistically believe you can get?
LeBron James - I don't see why he leaves Miami to help Kobe get his 6th ring (you know that guy everyone says he needs to have more rings than)
George/Cousins/Irving - all 3 are restricted Free Agents, and with the Bird Rights, the Pacers, Kings, Cavs all can match whatever offer the Lakers throw their way. Also George/Irving will be leaving, i hate to say this but, a better roster to join the Lakers.
Who do you guys believe you have a realistic chance at signing?? Now I know a LOT can happen in a season and in an Off Season. And who's game do you think would mesh the most with Kobe Bryant??
