  1. As it has been with their Ben and Joel, do we trust the process with Markelle as well? So far his offseason progression with his fitness and shooting have been very promising! what do you guys expect out of the final piece of the process?
  2. Michael Porter Jr 2018-19 Season Thread

    I currently own the 6th pick in one league (ESPN league in sig) and 7th pick in another league(not listed in sig) both dynasty leagues...both really active...contemplating on what to do with MPJ...ever since last season i had my eyes set on drafting MPJ and now i dunno if 6 or 7 is too high for him.
  3. Michael Porter Jr 2018-19 Season Thread

    so the question is...do we use a top 10 dynasty rookie draft pick on this feller? or is this another Greg Oden story in the making...
  4. LeBron James 2018-19 Season Thread

    Please keep this surface and try not to get emotional with this debate. This is a mere disagreement on what we think Lebron and Lakers are gonna be capable of with this team. There’s no reason for you to start pulling childish similes in a harmless debate. You think that Lakers will not be favored against any WC playoff team, I think they should be against at least a few. Utah I can see causing problems for Lakers however to call them clear favorites is tough. I even give you Minnesota. But Okc, San Antonio, Portland, new Orleans? I can’t imagine any of them being clearly favored of the Lakers. We agree to disagree.
  5. LeBron James 2018-19 Season Thread

    I only said Lakers would handle the Nuggets because you kept bringing them up as if they are seriously a top 4 team in the league...Lakers and Pelinka have already stated that this team has been designed to be a defensive monster rather than conform to the continuing run and gun 3pt or die trend happening in the NBA as the Warriors have composed a roster too great to beat at their own game. I’m sure that Lebron didn’t just come for the lure of LA without any basketball championship aspirations. You really think Lebron Magic and Pelinka just agreed to pay Lebron 154 million dollars to come and mentor the youth? You really think they brought in these players just to be coaches. If so, why not have Magic, the greatest PG of all time mentor Lonzo rather than Rondo? We never said that the Lebron and lakers would make it to the WCF but we said that they are a dark horse to make it...Houston doesn’t look like they improved on their team by losing Ariza and possibly Capela, two key pieces to their team. That 2nd spot for the WCF is pretty wide open if Houston can’t retain Capela. It’s easy to bet against Lakers to make the WCF, why not bet on Denver to make it instead?

    As presently constructed, this Lakers team will handle the Nuggets in 5 or 6 games...if they gel, they will give Houston a run for their money...but we can all agree that Warriors will likely handle them in 5 or 6 games
  7. LeBron James 2018-19 Season Thread

    Yes. I agree with this comment. As stated earlier, this year Lakers aren’t expected to win the WCF or the finals this season and that is why I also agree that they are more of a “dark horse” that can make some noise in the WC. But 2019 when Lebron can join Magic and Pelinka to recruit FAs in addition to this current squad, I’d consider them a very very real threat to the Golden State Warriors.
  8. Curious, how did your draft go in terms of first round?
  9. Yes. I guess if you need bigs it makes sense. But man that’ll be tough to draft him ahead of Knox Sexton MPJ SGA Bridges
  10. LeBron James 2018-19 Season Thread

    Both Denver and Lakers were out of the playoffs, Lakers got Lebron and a bunch of tough defensive players without losing much except Randle and Denver got IT2 which probably will struggle to see significant minutes in a Denver team stacked with guards and perimeter shooting. Jamal Murray has gained an extra year but doesn’t that go to the Lakers young core/the entire NBA as well? Yet Denver you think is better than everyone in the east minus Boston and Lakers with Lebron addition is rated below every western conference playoff team? Have you seen any sign of Lebron declining yet? Am I missing something here?
  11. LeBron James 2018-19 Season Thread

    Well I think this Laker team is a big improvement on Lebron's supporting cast last season but that's my opinion. You are right that they do not have a legitimate center. but neither did the warriors last season..in fact, they have the warriors' center from last year. You really think OKC, Minnesota, Utah, Denver, Portland, New Orleans are all clear favorites vs the Lakers with Lebron and co?
  12. LeBron James 2018-19 Season Thread

    First off, let's get one thing straight. I never said they would beat them and would be foolish if i did. Second, I agree that the Lakers beating the Warriors would be a huge upset that rivals the Miracle on Ice or dare I say the Warriors blowing a 3-1 lead however i still think that they can make the Warriors work more for their rings than most other teams.
  13. LeBron James 2018-19 Season Thread

    I agree. I don't see Houston being able to overcome Lebron and this Laker supporting cast of Youth and Veterans. Depending on how well this team meshes, i can see them causing real problems for the league(including Warriors) starting next season and even more so in 2019
  14. Josh Hart 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    I'd expect Hart to take minutes at pg, sg, and sf positions. I think Hart is versatile enough to be able to contribute effectively in 3 positions. I can see him getting 25-30 minutes. I think this Laker team is built so that the young core can contribute important minutes (25-30 mpg) and the veterans (minus Lebron) about (20-25 mpg). Honestly, I dont see any player (minus Lebron) averaging more than 32 mpg considering how deep this Laker team just got.
  15. Josh Hart 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    i agree that he isn't starting ahead of KCP however i definitely expect a significant increase in minutes from last season. As far as his future with the Lakers, I wouldn't count out the possibility of Hart moving as long as Kawhi is still part of the Spurs.
  16. Josh Hart 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    I wouldn't just disregard anything that happens in the Summer League as irrelevant. Just last year we witnessed Spida, Kuz, Tatum, Ingram(1 game), Lonzo ball out in Summer League and for the most part, they are all young studs going forward. Hart's Summer League performance has just increased his trade value tremendously and can become a key piece for the Lakers in a trade for a star vet.. I know he's been an appealing trade asset but i believe after this Summer League, teams are gonna want a piece of Hart more than ever before. Whether the Lakers decide to trade him or not, that is up to them but if anything, Hart has proven that he should play a significant role in the upcoming season..
  17. If you’re referring to jjj, probably not. I’d still go doncic ayton before jjj
  18. Got offered booker and 1.03(bagley, bamba, jjj) for Tatum and 1.01(doncic or ayton) in dynasty league...take it? also got offered kawhi and 1.08 for Tatum and 1.01...so torn
  19. team that drafted AD, Wall, Kyrie has a sick team.
  20. Sya, all i know is that if he falls to me at #4, im taking him lol
  21. My Bad, my signature team is another league. I guess, my roster in this league im asking for goes as follows: Lavine, DAR, G. Harris, Ben Simmons, Tatum, Giles, J. Valanciunas, Fultz, D. Bender, F Mason III, Justin Jackson, Zizic the league is 9 cat I currently own the 1.01 and 1.06 and was thinking of going Doncic and one of Bagley, JJJ, Carter Jr, or Bamba..whoever fell to me at 1.06. i know my bigs are quite weak however my concept was to always take the best player/trade asset available with my best pick and fill necessity with my 2nd pick. Hopefully this clarifies. Thanks!
  22. DRussell for 1.07 1.10 and 1.12 in rookie draft drussell and 1.06 for booker Tatum for Booker Drussell for 1.04 and 1.10 please rank these or let me know if I should stay put...I am owner of DRussell and Tatum FYI
