Russell Westbrook to the Lakers

Im CACKLING.  Of all the moves, why is this the move the Lakers needed to make?  Lebron and Westbook both need to be ball dominant.  Westbrook looking off AD and Lebron in crunch time to be heroic?  LOVE IT.  The stat hunting combo of Lebron and Westbrook will be hilarious

The Buddy Hield trade would have made tons of sense.  Dude would have had so many open looks and got back to being a 42-43% shooter he was before everyone key'd in on him.

I'll crack up if this further cements the Wizards moving Beal and he goes to the Warriors for Wiggins, Wiseman, and picks and they return in 21/22 with a 3 headed monster of Curry, Klay, and Beal and the Lakers trade 2 of their better shooters to run out a Westbrook/AD/Lebron trio who all shoot under 35% from 3 on a good day.  Sub 30% quite often.

I think you are being too rough on Westbrook, but I agree with your point. Either Beal or Hield would have been a much better fit for the Lakers.

You're also right about 3 point shooting which you gotta have to win in today's NBA. I don't know where that is going to come from.

I exaggerated a bit but Westbrook is who he is at this point.  He's a very talented player who can do some amazing things...but just doesn't win.  He's won 1 playoff series without Durant.  And he wasn't on teams with bums either. 

He's been especially bad in the playoffs.  Under 30% from 3 and still taking 4+ a game.  And his eFG has hovered around 40% which is horrible. 

If he was willing to play more like Rondo, it could work, but I just cant see that from him.

Portia resigns in Milwaukee for $9M over 2 years, second is player option. That's a steal.

Thats INCREDIBLE value.  He clearly likes it here and sees residual value in staying.

They got him for $1M more a year than Mike Muscala got in OKC.  Wow.

Lakers add a geriatric Trevor Ariza and a mediocre Wayne Ellington.

Just a great example of where this franchise has come. Not too long ago, this would be the franchise dropping $100M on Jarrett Allen

Honestly, thats not THAT bad of a deal.  He just averaged a double double and I didn't realize hes still only 23.  He's got a lot of upside

Unbelievable job by the Bucks to resign Portis.  Have you seen these contracts?

I said earlier I’m glad we have no cap space to keep us from doing a Plumlee type deal.

 Rumors were the bucks were going to re-sign PJ Tucker but he’s going to the Heat. Think the bucks will sign a quality back up PG.

Who are they going after?  If Tucker got 15m for two years the Bucks made the right decision.

Trying to land someone for a year on the mid level exception. Oladipo, Monk or Patty Mills.

Some people on the Heat Reddit said Bucks offered more, but he chose the Heat. Can’t really blame him.

In my limited knowledge of the salary cap, it seems the Bucks biggest loss here is that they lose his contract for trade flexibility. They don’t free up any space due to him leaving because they had his Bird Rights.

Mills would be a nice fit. 

I don't think people realize how dominating Giannis will be the next 7 yrs minimum.  I believe the floodgates are about to open.

Interesting defensive flyer. He's not Tucker, but his fit could be similar. More importantly, though, I am super here for garbage time with both Semi and Thanasis

So what’s the difference between the Bogdan sign and trade situation that was “tampering” vs all the other sign and trade deals that happened yesterday right at the start of free agency?

I want to know the difference of that and the Lakers deal where Lebron had Westbrook over to his house to talk about teaming up a month ago.
