Sedano, Michael Wilbon and Marc J. Spears then (2:25) discuss whether this is a sound strategy in 2019, when they will compete with the LA Clippers and others for the likes of Kawhi Leonard, Jimmy Butler, Kyrie Irving, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, Kemba Walker, Tobias Harris, D'Angelo Russell, Marc Gasol, Kristaps Porzingis, Khris Middleton, DeMarcus Cousins, Nikola Vucevic and more.

    Andre Ingram has BROKE THE NBA

  2. TOP DoG

    Each like I won’t fap for a day

  3. ESPN why are we still talking about this.

    *Lakers win a game*
    ESPN: Remember the Anthony Davis trade

    • Matthew Withum

      That’s what happens when you make someone your agent who’s not actually an agent.

    • Darryl Thompson

      At least this means they won’t talk about the trade too often😂😂. Just every blue moon.😅

  5. Martin Brown

    Every non Laker fan think they know what real laker fans want. Let me tell yall it aint A.D.

    • LakersLegend 2414

      Martin Brown nd we wouldve had one of the best defensive squads . Lonzo is arguably the best guard defender in the league . Once ingram fills out a little more he has a chance fo be a top five defender, nd A.D. is just a stud on tht end .

    • Anthony Mckinley

      No, its KD

    • Anthony Mckinley

      Well the Knicks is best at never developing young players. Y’all might get Kevin Knox after this season… Hell… The whole young roster for a Snickers… Thats satisfied

    • Anthony Mckinley

      +PG Loso N.O always had a team, and top 7 across the board where it come to where the team rank. They even number 2 in scoring in the league and 4th in rebounding. They just don’t have defense

    • nellymacc91

      KLUV they’re not overrated. They can’t be rated because they’re still developing

  6. he’s getting traded to the east. teams ain’t gonna trade their superstar to a team in the same conference 🤷🏽‍♂️

  7. Jarvis Juice

    I’ll never understand why they got rid of Brook Lopez…🤦🏻‍♂️

  8. The trade deadline is over so this topic is dead

    • KniGht1st

      +MrOunce3 Celtics aren’t going to offer Tatum for a 1 year rental of Davis. I guess you believe Jaylen Brown and Hayward’s contract is more valuable than Lakers young core

    • KniGht1st

      +MrOunce3 There are plenty fish in the pond. If GSW doesn”t offer the max contract to KD and/or Klay, Lakers might get them. Same as Cousins. Lakers can also gamble to offer a max to Middleton. They have plenty of salary room and trade pieces. Wizzards are looking to trade Beal. Cavs might trade Kevin Love to free up reduce the luxury tax. Pelicans might trade Holiday since they are rebuilding. Good players that want to win and get decent amount of money would gladly choose Lakers.

    • MrOunce3

      +KniGht1st Everything you said sounds silly and wishful. Talk some facts. Buyout candidates already passed on the Lakers. Even Melo and he got no job. 2nd Ingram got blood clots that could end his career. Lonzo been hurt more than he has played. He been benched multiple times and has been thrown in EVERY trade conversation. His father makes it worse. Only Kuz has value.

      Every piece the Celtocs have are proven. Tayrum, Rozier, Smart, Morris, Brown, Hayward, Horford. Thats not even a discussion.

      Lakers have the worst possible deal and they are desperate. The NEED AD because if he dont come which he cant unless the Pelicans are that stupid or Kyrie just misses Leron that much there in NO GOOD REASON for ANY star to come.

      Dont tell who won risk a 1 yr rental when teams are already doing that for Lenard and OKC did it for PG.

    • KniGht1st

      +MrOunce3 Um, are you dumb? I didn’t suggest anything those are just Lakers options for this offseason. Did you actually read the article about Ingram? He doesn’t have the same issue as Bosh.Expected to have a full recovery in less than 6 months. If Lakers are trading for Beal or Love, they don’t have to throw everyone in like they did for AD. I know you are a Celtics fan, but wake up bro. Hayward is a hot potato no one wants due to his injury history and his trash contract. Marcus Smart is producing nothing while having a big contract. Horford is averaging 13/6 and he is getting 30mil next year. Brown, Morris, and Tatum are only valuable pieces they have. Even with Kyrie on board, they have to trade Hayward/Horford, Smart and Tatum for AD. Derozan is aging and becoming worse and worse, the gamble wasn’t as big as trading a future top 10 player. Raptors are fucked if Kawhi doesn’t sign with Raptors, and Celtics are fucked if Davis doesn’t sign with them.

  9. Richard Bailey

    They should have resigned Randle and Lopez.

    • DCherryASU12

      No they shouldn’t have. Idk where this notion came from. Randle’s skill set is horrible to pair with LeBron and Brook is horrible defensively. That’d make 3 of the 5 starters bad defenders because Bron is pedestrian and so is Kuz. Dead this.

    • G.0.A.T to Hell

      Yeah you are brook is good 3pts but in defense not to good he is slow catch to quicker player just like marc gasol and randle is good in attacking the rim bcuz he is quick and physical player but again he not a good defender because he is small and not good rebounder

  10. If I had a dollar for every Lakers topic this year I could move to la😂😂💯

    • Rap Brown

      It’s the Lakers though… What you must be from Milwaukee. LMAO

    • Antonio

      Yeah but then you would have to actually live here and I make $95k a year but it’s not even enough to buy a house here!!!!!!!!!!

    • Rap Brown

      +Antonio 95k a year??? Are you hiring? Lol

    • ITaBS-Auckland

      Nice one lol

  11. Surrounding LeBron with shooter has not been proven to be the recipe for winning. 3/6. How about LeBron sacrificing some of game and play team ball the right way.

    • Anthony Mckinley

      LeBron needs shooters. I knew it wasn’t gonna work when he went there and the team started getting pieces that weren’t shooters. I knew right away it’ll be a problem. Now they can close more in the paint. LeBron can’t drive and kick anymore because I know they gonna miss. They can run but can’t spread the floor properly

    • Shalamar Man

      J Shaw Sacrifice HIS game ?! Like Jordan and Kobe did ?! Play team ball ?! STOP IT !!!!!!!

    • Carlos Abrego

      3/9

      He is 3-6 in the Finals though.

    • david hojnacki

      Nick Casillas then why didn’t other teams with the better records make it?

    • Anthony Mckinley

      +Carlos Abrego don’t matter… No one in today’s nba went to the finals 9 times besides bill russel

  12. ToneCre8

    That Magic passing is a beautiful thing to watch!! 😍

  13. Dont let this distract you from the fact that Lebron didnt defend his number 1 supporter shannon Sharpe on live television from that blonde mustache blue hair mental case Antonio Brown

  14. Matt Pomeroy

    Who’s actually dumb enough to buy ESPN+????

  15. Sweet James Jones II

    U need to surround LeBron with shooters so they can carry him…🤣🤣🤣

    • Shalamar Man

      Sweet James Jones II LMAO !!!! OK

    • Sweet James Jones II

      +Shalamar Man come on bro be real u know the east weak….u can’t beat a bunch of scrubs then act like u hard….🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂😂

    • Shalamar Man

      Sweet James Jones II I was DONE with Boston wouldn’t make the playoffs.

    • Sweet James Jones II

      +Shalamar Man ya they looking tuff against the 8th seed Kings now…..🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣😁😂😁😂😁🤣😁🤣😁🤣😂😂

  16. Lakers play a game ESPN: well AD could spruce things up. Me: well you know AD could make 28 other teams (excluding NOR and LAL) better

  17. Tlev1984

    The problem with the Lakers.
    1. Impatience. They rush their young guys to be great and dont let the develop
    2. They dont really know how to develop young players. Kobe was the last young player for the Lakers to develop and become an Allstar/Champion.
    3. Lebron is a problem, why? He doesn’t know how to sacrifice his game to better other players. Players always adjust their game to him, never the other way around. He doesn’t take a step back and let these young guys do their thing. Just some of the problems with Lebron. Not a hater actually a fan but truth is truth.

    • ian fitton

      +Shaolin Fantastic jordan didnt need to sacrifice anything because he consitantly won,never went missing in clutch time and just had a killer instinct and desire to win that rubbed off onto his team ,whilst you cannot underestimate pippens role in the success jordan was the man who pushed the bulls over the top and drove them to levels of greatness that made that dynasty what it was!

    • Boss Playa60

      Shaolin Fantastic Kobe beat 2 teams LBJ loss to in 09’,10’(Magic/Celtics)… MJ/Kobe would never be 3-6 in the finals… Kobe’s played every team LBJ has played because he’s coming out the West idiot!! Only team Kobe didn’t face reg/postseason is 2014-2018 GSW… Kobe’s Achilles game he was cooking GSW 34/5/4… willed us into the playoffs @ 34 wit injuries piled up… Prime MJ & Prime Kobe would give GSW major problems…

    • antwon carroll

      +Shaolin Fantastic Jordan played his role which was score and defense. He let pipped run the offense, he let Phil run the team, and even though he hated Jerry Krause the GM, he never tried to mold the roster. Jordan let people do their jobs. Lebron wants to much control.

    • Tlev1984

      +Shalamar Man
      Alrighty then, no need to sky dive into your feelings. Stop acting like players came in the league perfect and didn’t get better later in their career. That’s why they have the Most Improved Player Award. Notable recipients: T Mac, Paul George, The Greek Freak, Victor Oladipo, Kevin Love, Jimmy Butler just to name a few these are players people really weren’t looked at early in their career. Also, as you can see with the other replies Jordan did sacrifice his game and so did Kobe and guess what else they had to develop their game as well when they first got in the league. Funny, you would think the best player in the world would know how and when to adjust his game, oh well. Last, please if you dont take anything I said listen carefully to this
      Lebron is a human being, he is not a real king, that is just a nickname he gave himself. No need to get personally offended. He is nowhere near perfect just like the rest of us.

  18. GodFatherPain

    Lakers have been in the lottery for 7 years now

    Sixers tanked for 3 years and nba changes the rules

  19. Camera Buff

    The Lakers were not adamant about “not being like Cleveland.” The people who put this video together just made that up. The Lakers were adamant that they “could not beat the Warriors by outshooting them.” Completely different.

    • b atman

      “We are trying to make sure that we watch his minutes but also that we don’t run everything through him because now it is Cleveland all over again and we don’t want that,” Johnson said in an interview on SiriusXM NBA Radio. “We want to get up and down.”

  20. OnceUponaSavage

    They really gonna blame Magic for LeBron playing no defense and throwing in the towel 25 games before the end of the season.
