        LAL has messed up their team over the years. They literally had the #2 pick in 3 straight drafts. If they were considering 'the process', well they messed up completely. with those 3 #2 overall picks: D'Angelo Russell, Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball.
        Lets really look at it. in 2014, LAL drafts Julius Randle at #7. after that, the next 3 drafts, they pick at #2.
        2015, D'Angelo Russell. i know he had an All-Star season this year, but we all know the LAL have been good when they have had a big man underneath. So im saying instead of Russell, they should have drafted Jahil Okafor. you gonna say, WTF? Well if you look at his first year, thats what Okafor could give you, he was the starter, 30 mpg 15 shots/game 17.5 ppg 7 rpg 1 apg 1 bpg. And what is weird, when AD was out, NO was playing Okafor next to Randle, and both played well.
        2016, Ingram, when i think they would have been better suited to get Buddy Hield.
        2017, Lonzo. :-( fell for the hype. When they should have drafted D'aaron Fox. Weird, Hield and Fox are the back court for the Kings, that could have been for the LAL.

            The media indirectly created the anti lebron movement by comparing him to Kobe and Michael which creates a hatred of Lebron that goes 2 or 3 generations back. That's at least 5 million people that hate lebron.

              I think Lebron is a good player but who named him the GOAT I though what Shannon sharpe said his the king blablablah Anthony Davis doesn’t need lebron he needs Anthony but imagine a lineup of dangerous russel with lebron , Anthony , Kuzma and just some other player in the lineup but he won’t win a championship in LA he should of just retired and walk through the big door as a king know his legacy by not making the playoffs is damaged known his last years of playing with the lakers as a cry baby who always complains with the referees

                Fuck the Lakers fan base they've been losers 5 years prior to him being there.. what good is coming the Lakers way nothing good is coming their way because of Rob pelinka or Jeanie Buss.. there's not a coach out there or a Pat Riley or Jerry West that can cover up the stench of Jennie Buss and Rob pelinka so trying to brainwash people about LeBron James there's a laker stench that's Jeannie and Rob

                  LeBron does not have any ties to LA...we are not going to embrace someone that is not about Lakers basketball.

                            You have CC Sabathia on your show there are a million amazing questions you could ask this wonderful baseball player and you talk about LeBron James. Jesus Christ man talk about his weight issue talk about his alcoholism talk about being a Yankee. talk about retiring. Talk about Yankee baseball. Or just talk about baseball. Come on Stephen a Smith you stiiiiink

                                        Man, At this point, this ain't Lebron's fault y'all ride this niggas dick so much. I know I clicked but damn this is ridiculous. Why are we fucking asking CC Sabathia about basketball let alone a team, not in the playoffs. Also, this shit is a sad state of affairs for baseball when you're not even talking about the actual sport he is apart of. Soccer is gonna eventually eclipse that boring ass sport.

                                              To the slow ppl in the comments: his profession isn't relevant to the subject. You don't have to be a basketball player to have an opinion on basketball. If you're getting worked up over shows like this, about trivial shit, you seriously need to re-evaluate your life.

                                                        Why don't the Lakers try & build a title contender like Golden State did? Klay, Draymond & Steph were all drafted. Lakers always wanting immediate success. Look at the Spurs.

                                                          Edward Muzungu probably easier than starting a complete tear down and rebuilding with a 34 year old.

They Won't give anyone who wasn't tied to the lakers a shot to run anything. The Buss Family is dysfunctional since pops passed in 2013. They have this deal with ESPN so the media won't take the spot light off them, which adds un needed pressure to a team trying to pass 30 something wins. This Teams is doomed unless it does a complete 180 and forgets about immediately competing for a Title. Win 40 games first. Then Make the Playoffs, Then the 2-3rd round of said playoffs before you even think about title talks! But Nope Lakers will Hire a new coach and the talks will go right to " They are 1 Star away from winning a 'Chip !" LOL @ LAL
