Oh wow. Lakers give up Ball/Ingram/Hart/the #4 pick, and 2 future first rounders for Davis. I like the deal overall, but I wish they hadn't had to give up so many picks. Still, they have $ to throw at a FA, and 2 gaping holes at the guard spots.

I was thinking about the draft picks too, but really how many drafts picks might you go through to draft an AD anyways? There are so many misses with draft picks and AD is a known entity.

I'm sure rumors will fly about Chris Paul, but I hope he ain't the pickup. Duke is way past his prime.

Lifelong Clipper fan...
Not sure how I feel yet.
Not a Paul George guy... seems kind of lazy to me.

Luls. Ya should be beyond stoked. Now ya won't have to watch idly as AD and Bron Bron run roughshod over the "other" LA team.

Between both LA teams stocking up and KD and Kyrie to the Nets, the NBA is gonna look mighty different next year. Should be interesting (although I'm well aware KD isn't expecting to play next year). Plus, Westbrook might get traded out of OKC. Will be interesting to see where he lands?

The Clippers turned themselves into an immediate title contender. I can envision good players wanting to take pay cuts to play with Kawhi for at least a few years. My main question is how much they will dominate when their 2 elite players play the same position. (Yeah, we call both of 'em SG/SF's, but at this stage in their careers they are both way more at home as SF's). They even like receiving the ball at similar spots on the court.

True.
I figure LBJ will continue to cash in on the injury days that he hasn’t used.
Kind of like a Ford Truck... when it breaks down once, it’s the new norm.
As long as they keep Lou Williams and Harrel I’m happy.
Seems they do have a legit shot.

Hopefully he won't have to work as hard with one of the best players in the league as a second option. He's a very old 34 though. I was thinking it's more like a jag/range rover. High performance fudge that is a nightmare once the warranty period expires.
