Well, the Lakers have certainly addressed their shooting.

And they got rid of 2 of their best 3pt shooters in KCP and Kuzma. It looks good to say they added those guys when you ignore what they lost and who those guys are supposed to replace.

They're losing Schroeder also, hopefully theyre not able to get something in return with a sign and trade.

1Sun or should I say Andrew Light.....has the dubious honor of being the only person on my ignore list.
I've tried it before, it made the board a challenge to read. And then, as he dragged the mood lower and lower, it seemed to affect the posting of others. You can't let his nonsense go unchallenged, too many people can be swayed by his misinformation if no one is correcting or challenging it. JMO.

So...the Suns are setting themselves up to be forced to give Stix, who can't cut it in the G League, major minutes in an NBA championship run.

Ouch.

:thumbup: You are hilarious.

Probably on here already but local media says Curry will sign a 4 year deal to stay with Warriors

Once again, what significant power forward could the Suns have signed that didn’t take a hometown discount/go to a very specific team/or just cost too much?

Jeff Green
Trey Lyles
James Johnson
P.J. Tucker
Semi Ojeleye

Any would have been okay as a back-up to Crowder. Not ideal by any means, but certainly better than playing Cam out of position or playing Stix at all.

every one of those guys is a better shooter than Kuzma who was a pedestrian 36%.

they’ve got shooters and did a good job there. To say otherwise is drinking haterade. That said, I still don’t think that a mix that works in the playoffs. Likely wins a lot of regular season games where LeBron can take his foot off the gas and let Russ’ freak flag fly.

It's easy to dislike the Lakers because they attract all this talent.

is Malik Monk a talent? His team didn’t offer him an extension and he pretty much signed for nothing. That lets you know how he’s thought of around the nba

there going to have a hard time stopping anybody.

I don’t see anything special with the guys they signed. They can shoot but do nothing else really

Can that team play any defense at all?

The fact that in your eyes the difference between a successful off-season or a disaster off-season came down to us getting Trey Lyles or Semi Ojeleye is laughable and peak trolling.

Crowder is the starting 4, Johnson is the backup 4. And remember, there is a good reason that coaches such as Hubie Brown have often said that "NBA position labels are for fans that don't understand the game".

And yet the last two NBA champions had each position filled classically.

Hearing some reports that the Bulls are trying to get DeRozan in a sign and trade for Lauri and its down to the Bulls and Clippers, but there isn't much on the Clipers that the Spurs want for a sign and trade.
