  1. stars leaving is not the problem, it is something that happens, the real risk is the fact that if they want to do it they can decide who wins the title each season
    just to make sure I am not talking about fixing games, I am talking about the top 10 or 15 in the league taking turns at the title, all it takes is their agents suggesting they can make more money from the opportunities that open after winning a ring than they can make from contracts in the NBA

  2. scrolling down the comments to see how long it takes before someone mentions windhorst's weight. seriously, comment on what he says, his opinions, his views, not what he looks like.

  3. Trading is Modern Day Slavery
    It's a system ran by rich white men over black men. Where you are hated by mainly white patrons if you leave. Every man or women MUST be able to go as they please. When ever they choose to go. This system of sports must be abolished. All white people or socially immoral person will say they are making millions so they shouldn't give a fuck. We'll you are not only a piece of shit person you have no comprehension of how these athletes truly feel and don't care. You along side these owners and league only sees them as dollars for your entertainment. Each and every single one of them. That is exactly why LeBron has spoken out in regards to this matter.

  4. Draft smart then buy a B rade player and a good bench and you got a chance.. Warriors did it with small guys no bigs then change the league

  5. as a laker fan. Im content with this answer. I'd rather he be honest that bullshit. If he walks so be it. It means we didnt meet his expectations. If hes the future of the Lakers then fuck ya

  6. carmelo and cp3 didn't work because houston wanted to be another warriors squad instead of just being their own team…OKC tried blaming melo too but they still didn't make it out the playoffs after all of their shuffling…plainly put it wasn't melo.

  7. Team song of the NBA team this year:
    clippers: Perfect Combination
    houston: Torn between two Lovers
    Lakers: HELP! i need somebody
    Raptors: Hello & Goddbye
    Warriors: Hold On
    Celtics: got to believe in magic
    Bucks: A whole new world
    Thunder: twinkle, twinkle little star
    Sixers: i believe i can fly
    Bulls: all this time
    Nets: Imagine
    Knicks: nothing compares
    Nuggets: Yesterday
    Wolves: complicated
    Cavaliers: hey dude
    Hawks: Just once
    Magic: faithfully
    Wizard: when the smoke is going down
    Hornets: you & me against the world
    Jazz: somewhere down the road
    Piston: eternal flame
    Spurs: total eclipse
    Blazers: blowing in the wind
    Grizzlies: let it be
    Pacers: sound of silence
    Heat: open arms
    Kings: tomorrow
    Pelican: top of the world
    Suns: i can wait forever
    Mavericks: My way

  8. I'm a Lakers fan and I understand where he's coming from. If the Lakers management proves to be incompetent, if LeBron isn't great anymore and if there's a shot to join a better team in a similar market, AD will leave. Ultimately, so much rides on this season for the Lakers. If the team flaunders once again, the team could potentially suck for the next decade!

  9. She said do you think Kobe didnt want D how to be comfy.Cmon man. Players from the past wasnt thinking about other players being comfy. They came to play ball and that was it

  10. Players want to break their contracts and leave but imagine the teams break their end and just don’t pay the players. God forbid the players get treated the way they treat a team

  11. "After a disastrous season with the 38 win Lakers, Anthony Davis decides to sign a free agent contract with the western conference finalist Clippers."

  12. They shouldn’t feel bad either, teams definitely don’t feel bad when they trade you in your sleep if you get hurt playing for their team or get older…so now it’s the player’s turn to fuck with the game 💯

  13. Davis already knows this Laker team ain't gon win sht. And they struck out in free agency. He's gone. A one year rental for a first round exit, if they even make the playoffs.
