A skeptic that he'll resign?

More of a skeptic that this pushís then over the hump to a NBA Championship next year. Iím not a Laker hater. I just donít have a warm fuzzy feeling.

I'm buying them as a contender, but we'll have to see how the rest of the offseason unfolds before I call them favorites.

Boston continues to crumble. One of the worst years for a team I can remember in recent sports history. I almost feel bad for their fanbase. Almost.

We've been teasing this Celtic fan at work; now he goes around yelling "LeBron is trash!" all day.

man I can't think of a turnover so drastic. Boston looked to be poised to be a contender for years. Ainge was a genius and Stevens was the man.

Ainge has become so obsessed with winning every trade that he is losing the war. He's been hoarding assets, but when it came time to cash in, he became too attached to actually extract the value he should have. I wouldn't be surprised if "Pyrrhic Victories" soon became known as "Ainge Victories" in NBA circles.

Barring something short of a Kawhi miracle FA pitch (I'd be shocked if he ended anywhere other than Toronto or LA), this team is absolutely toast. Major rebuild coming.

Report from Yahoo Sports that The Lakers are interested in D'Angelo Russell as a free agent. The Lakers are now officially in The Twilight Zone.

I kinda hope it's true, but Lakers have been linked to every FA since the advent of twitter.
