    Anyone else think this signing is a gamble for the Lakers? Remember, LeBron's right hand was pulverized after Game 1 of the Finals to the point he could barely dribble.

    Then we will say LeBron did not have enough help. We are going to say that anyways, but it will be even louder.

    In all seriousness, you put the Cavs team from this past year in the West, I doubt they make the playoffs. Seeds 3-9 were separated by only a couple of games. It is not the same team, obviously, but the Lakers won 35 games last year. Is LeBron worth another 12 wins? Probably so. They will be much improved with the King leading the way.

    Why? None of those guys are very good and most of them don't even make sense as a basketball fit with Lebron.

    My guess it is going to take a full season for that hand to heal. He will need a second off season of roster maneuvering by the Lakers before that hand heals. Unless Kawhi's leg miraculously heals and he joins LeBron with the Lakers. The we may see a miracle ... for both of them.

    If the Lakers still suck, I blame Magic Johnson before anyone else because if they don’t make the playoffs that means they didn’t get Kawhi and that is Magic Johnson’s fault. Now if they don’t make the playoffs and half the team is injured then there isn’t anything anyone can do about that.

    If LeBron does what he has been doing his whole career and the Lakers don’t make the playoffs whose fault is it?

    This team is built like an 80s style team. Whether that style works remains to be seen. I don’t see how they can run the same offense they have been running and truthfully with LeBron I don’t know if they can.

    Sent my gal a text and she said she knew since Feb. Says he told her husband and one other. Seems like they are pretty tight. It just cost her season tickets she said. LOL

    Celtics and Sixers have way more to offer. It's not close.
