: : :: : The kid and his family are an embarrassment to the Laker's organization. Pull the trigger and trade him ASAP; otherwise, its Magic and Pelinka who will look inept and foolish subjecting the tarnished organization image another year.
: : :: I agree. 100%. Dissing teammates in rap albums? Grow up. How long do we have to deal with this?If Jerry West was in charge he and Kuzma would be gone(remember Nick Van Exel Cancun and Cedric Ceballos Havasu? Both All-Star caliber. Both gone immediatley after that. Lakers got better) I told you this before..The apple does not fall far from the tree. LaVar and Lonzo..smack talking loudmouths. it's just that Lonzo is just now discovering his inner LaVar he had all along. By being away from dad..he is becoming dad. Embarrassing. Remember when Worthy and Magic dissed each other on the rap albums..? Oops, wait, that never happened. Professionals. This is the Pros. This is The Lakers.We don't,as fans,have time to sit and wait for these kids to grow up. It's about titles here. Not babysit and wait. DeAngelo and Swagyy, now Lonzo and Kuzma. What is this? Pull the trigger Magic..
: : :: I dont' wanna hear from you BBB (Big Ball Baffoons) either.
: : : Trade the guy and make him another team's
: : : problem, seems like he gets a lot of injuries
: : : during a season anyway, it's money down the
: : : drain for the organization.
: : Ceballos was not gone immediately, the Lakers traded Lynch, Peeler, and Vlade before dealing Ceballos mid-December (8 months post-Havasu). Ceballos was dealt b/c his touches were severely limited with Shaq arriving and Eddie developing. Once Horry became available after he "threw in the towel" with Coach Danny Ainge, West dealt Cedric for the player who fit better.
: : Right now the Spurs are looking for the best deal for Kawhi, supposedly Brandon Ingram is what they want from the Lakers in return. Even though Ingram may be better now, Lonzo/Kuzma are a better fit for this team and its projected targets (PG, LeBron). These "incidents" happen within every team when young players test each other's triggers/tempers, only dumb move here was deliberately making it public. However, there is no actual problem between the two. Trading a guy for making a Chappelle's show skit where he called someone "Pepperoni face" is a panic move. Both have been silent since Magic called them in, making it a non-issue.
: : However, it is very likely the Lakers are only left with two of Kuzma/Hart/Ball/Ingram should LeBron/PG/Kawhi all end up here (Randle is definitely gone in that scenario, can't afford the $12.4M cap hold). Deng's salary needs to be cleared if the Front Office wants to form a big three, and it would cost the Lakers several young players to clear Luol's salary and acquire Kawhi.
: I think most Laker fans, at least the ones I know, are over the Ball circus at this point. We just want a product on the court representative of the Laker tradition. If Lonzo is dealt to make it happen then so be it. Actually I'd be happy never to hear from Lavar again although it might be humorous to see his reaction if Zo did get traded.
You guys have moved away from kush and are now using the heavy stuff huh??? Lonzo is an all star and will lead the Lakers to a "Ship.
