    False. D'Angelo was hated by Magic and Byron Scott. Clarkson, Nance and Randle have been close with D'Angelo. Dumping Mozzy's contract was the main goal. In order to do that they had to throw in D'Angelo and since Magic took over he has quietly hated on Russell every chance he got. Makes sense now. Magic is a bum. Just like his boy Byron.

    If they don't get LeBron in 2018 then this is all for nothing.

    He wasn't hated by his teammates. He was hated by Magic.

    Nope. I just used a Lakers tee shirt to clean up dog urine.

    Wade has opted in his contract with the Bulls for next season. Smart move, he isn't gonna be getting that type of money as old as he is with any other team.

    You would think so but apparently not to Boston

    Man don't be mad at me I was repeating multiple reporters take during the season. Plus no lottery team wanting him does not look good.

    The national reporters have no clue what is going on in the locker room. I'll trust the local reporters and his social media accounts which tell a different story.

    No lottery team wanting him goes both ways. What were the Lakers asking for in return?

    Aldridge says Butler has said he'd prefer to stay in Chicago instead of going to Cleveland.

    Two years in ... my "prediction" of Booker having a better NBA career than Russell is looking less outlandish.

    From what I just read, this trade will allow them to have $64 million in cap space in 2018, enough for two max deals, PG and LBJ. It's a good deal for the Lakers, they will have to pay 22 million for one year of Lopez, which is better than three years and 48 million for Mosgov. I can't wait to see Russell's Fan Duel pricing elevate on the daily.

    They wanted DAR as apart of a trade for a pick. DAR was a non starter. According to Zac Lowe it was two thing locker room chemisty and health. First I heard about health or injuries associated with DAR.

    For the record I'm not hating on him but I'm an NBA twitter junkie and DAR leaving the Lakers was a foregone conclusion this week. I just don't think they got enough. But it was about dumping Mosgov salary.

    Butler not wanting to go to Cleveland has to have the Cavs fans nervous.
