I still think it's a poor deal with NO unless they have plans to swap Ball and the 4th for something, and I still think the LA franchise is a mess. I'll hold off until I see their final roster, but I'm most likely willing to bet cash money that they don't win a Championship in the next 2 years, regardless of what the Vegas betting lines are.

I guess it was too much to expect you to come on here and admit you were wrong like a grown man. In some ways, though, this actually makes it better.

Lakers will almost assuredly sign another max player, and Kyrie will likely bolt (as he should). The Lakers are contenders again, and the Celtics are crumbling. This is shaping up to be a great offseason.
