    Why is the girl in the middle trying to get her point across so bad? isn’t she just the host?

      Apparently Stephen A is laying down pipe on her like he’s a construction worker, so maybe that’s why

    Lakers have no off-season moves to make

    • Jay Noel

      May 6, 2022 at 11:52 am

      Trade Westbrook for Hayward and hopefully rozier or Kelly oubre, trade talen and nunn for some type of wing 3nD, sign cam reddish, Tj warren and maybe even victor from Miami

      He’s not injury prone he just doesn’t play

  5. Erik Coleman

    May 6, 2022 at 12:06 pm

    If Kyrie & Bron were cool then i would agree to trade AD

  6. Devhardy

    Molly shut up can’t you see two men are talking

    GUYS! GUYS! THE LAKERS ARE OUT OF THE PLAYOFFS! WE HAVE AN AMAZING EASTERN CONFERENCE THAT IS NECK AND NECK AND THE WEST HAS A DOGFIGHT SERIES AND A CERTIFIED GOOD MATCHUP IN THE WCF! STOP TALKING ABOUT THE LAKERS!

    • edd edward

      May 6, 2022 at 4:25 pm

      they’re the biggest franchise in the sport bro.. whether we like it or not

    • caper087

      May 6, 2022 at 4:55 pm

      @edd edward no there not lol.. Lebron is

  8. Stephano

    May 6, 2022 at 12:23 pm

    At this point just trade all of your picks and prospects for KD lol

  9. Chaebean Bak

    May 6, 2022 at 12:24 pm

    just imagine thinking that the lakers woulda taken john wall for westbrick when wall hasn’t even played and the rockets were the ones that traded brickmaster for him and are totally rebuilding and still won’t take him back. lol.

    • mrpzpdx

      May 6, 2022 at 12:32 pm

      Yep Basketball IQ matters Russell gonna loose you games he makes poor decisions in crunch time over and over again and doesn’t wanna learn and change his game and he’s a point guard that can’t shoot.

    • Chaebean Bak

      May 6, 2022 at 12:48 pm

      @mrpzpdx I can’t even say at this point that he is a point guard. But the only way for him to do anything in a game is for him to have the ball.

    • Veganpotter Thevegan

      May 6, 2022 at 12:51 pm

      The real crazy thing is that Westbrook got the Wizards to the playoffs and the guys the Wizzards got for him couldn’t get them to the playoffs

    • Veganpotter Thevegan

      May 6, 2022 at 12:55 pm

      @Chaebean Bak He had over 11 assists per game last season. Only 7.1 this season, but he also had 7 a game the year before he got 11. So he can definitely still playmake. He obviously gets plenty of turnovers but it’s not so terrible when he gets 11 assists per game. This season, he got his normal turnover rate but less assists. But much of that is not only his fault. Most of the Lakers shot like trash this season so they couldn’t close on at least 2 assists per game

    • Chaebean Bak

      May 6, 2022 at 1:16 pm

      @Veganpotter Thevegan beal was hurt man…. if the main guy is hurt then of course. You can’t even compare that really…

  10. GrindTime

    May 6, 2022 at 12:30 pm

    If they want kyrie that is also injury prone. I would bring DAME TIME instead to pair up with Lebron. Now thats lethal

    • JayDon

      May 6, 2022 at 1:35 pm

      They would have to trade for him and guess what…….they got nothing to trade besides LeBron!!!!

    • GrindTime

      May 6, 2022 at 1:43 pm

      @JayDon trade AD then blazers trade AD again for picks and other role players. Portland is in rebuilding phase anyways

    • Kris King

      May 6, 2022 at 3:19 pm

      I like the Dame trade but Portland will want picks or a young star or a lot of picks for him

    • GrindTime

      May 6, 2022 at 3:28 pm

      @Kris King would be crazy, maybe if they pull off a 3-4 team trade

  11. SAGE

    May 6, 2022 at 12:36 pm

    PUT HIM UP FOR TRADE, AND LETS SEE HOW MANY TEAMS WOULD CALL ASAP, YOU POSSUM FACE CLOWN 🤡

  12. D J

    May 6, 2022 at 12:42 pm

    They need some young talent to keep them up with the rest of ‘em

  13. Kreyzaim

    May 6, 2022 at 12:42 pm

    Keep Lebron, AD, Westbrook, Monk and Melo. Those spots on a good roster should be secure. Build around that. We need wings, at least one young Center that’s able to switch, and one good shooter.

    • Jason Menso

      May 6, 2022 at 2:44 pm

      With what capspace? 🤔

  14. Charles T.

    May 6, 2022 at 12:50 pm

    They need to trade the whole team including Lebron. Lebron’s scoring this season was all garbage and completely inconsequential to the lakers winning any games.

  15. Opinionation

    May 6, 2022 at 1:01 pm

    So many points to look at in this situation. AD and Russ value is down and so is Kyrie value. So if possible you trade AD for Kyrie and probably a pick or another player involved, what happens with Russ because at this point who wants him on their roster with that contract? Then you have to look at how Ben AD and KD play together on paper it looks pretty good but who is the vocal leader and the guy to get people in line because it obviously wasn’t KD this year and neither one of the other two stars have shown they can be trusted. It’s way too many question marks for this possibility. They are better off trading AD to a young team for youth and younger stars to be competitive but also build for the future of the franchise. Then look into free agency for a Brad Beal type of player to add with Lebron.

  16. Lucas Garces

    May 6, 2022 at 1:02 pm

    I like perk but proposing AD for Kyrie is insanity.

    • Rodney Ersery

      May 6, 2022 at 4:36 pm

      Exactly like that blew me for good bro that was the most stupidity I’ve heard since Max Kellerman said Brady was falling off a cliff lol and I still think perk tops that

  17. Devin Moore

    May 6, 2022 at 1:46 pm

    So what their saying is that the Lakers should trade a guy that is always injured for a locker room cancer. Sounds about right

  18. Armen Assaturian

    May 6, 2022 at 2:05 pm

    LEBRON DOESNT PLAY ANNNYYY DEEEFENSE!!!!

    • Hotboiibash

      May 6, 2022 at 2:54 pm

      Hes like 40 lol I wouldn’t be sitting in the that chair ether

    • Floopy Fool

      May 6, 2022 at 11:14 pm

      he will play defense when it matters

    • Armen Assaturian

      May 6, 2022 at 11:21 pm

      @Floopy Fool he hasn’t played D in 2 years so…

  19. Purple Plantain

    May 6, 2022 at 2:17 pm

    give Melo a bigger role and leave Russ at someone’s doorstep. The young guys may develop, but a seasoned roleplayer is what we need

  20. Corey D

    May 6, 2022 at 4:15 pm

    Shut up Molly.. we don’t care!

  21. Fitu Lefefe

    AD IS NOT GOING NO WHERE

    Hire Lebron as the next head coach. 13 current head coaches in the NBA have less than 3 years experience coaching. 5 have only one year experience. Ime udoka is coaching the Boston Celtics; who are currently in the playoffs. 1st year as a head coach. Lebron James 19 years experience as player and some say player coach ( without the title of coach). 9 title appearances. Has transferable management skills from his multiple business ventures. Combine his attributes and talents and you have the perfect candidate for a 1st year player/head coach.

    Raleigh Simmons Coached by Fred Tex Winter. Lakers will TOUCH KYRIE and LA. will win it all.
