  • Lakers ended up getting AD for less than the Clippers paid to get Paul George. But that's none of my business...

  • Lonzo ball was a bomb in the lakers great move that lakers trade him

  • NBA is straight garbage now.... all a bunch Divas.

  • They need to get past the rockets first....

  • Hahahaha, how is Big Baller Brand doing today??? Just like I said bruh, he has ruined his sons career's. La Loser

  • I think raps should get buzzmak biombo And smash teams throu the inside well ha 've super big right through the middle and spicy with the shake and bake!!! If I was Toronto's coach I'd make the league call me mister👤👤👤. #2 is in the past now. And Toronto is gotta get ready cuz nex year every team out there is gona wana beat the NBA CHAMPIONS. Nex year really is TORONTO vs. Every1. But for now TORONTO RAPTORS#1. " let it burn" by usher, dedicated to you haterz

  • Woj- "there hasn't been a steep price than LA gave up for davis. LA Clippers- hold my beer woj!

  • Lakers maybe make the 8th spot. Swept or maybe win one game in round 1. AD has only played 60+ gm.s in a season once. Lebron will need lots of Kawhi time . The third 'super star' they need will wipe out any serious bench prospects and even if its Kawhi they will struggle because none of them can play every game and their back ups will be a bunch of spares. The Mavericks beat OKC with westbrook, KD and Harden then beat Miami w/ a prime Lebron, Bosch and Wade . Neither team had a bench that could run with Dallas and the Mavericks ran them to death in 6 games. They were done if you watch that 6th game over. Same thing will happen this year. If Lebron or AD goes down for any significant time they don t make the play offs. I cant wait to see the Pel.s upset them and Zion run Lebron to death one on one. I think the Mavericks land both Kemba and Deandre Jordan back and theyre the team that takes the spot in the west and not LA. I said LA wouldnt make the post season last year and that Luka would be an allstar and people were laughing at me. Im saying now Luka is going to throw up harden like stats when Lebron is 'resting' out games and be a more significant player in the league next year.

  • LeBrow!!

  • Lakers will win it all next year

  • The Lakers build a championship team with LeBron and AD and I think two other superstars should be signed as a free agent and I think those two players should be Nikola Jokić as their starting center and either Paul George or LeBron’s old teammate back in Cleveland Kyrie Irving as their starting Point Guard and I think they should trade Moritz Wagner and Isaac Bonga to the Phoenix Suns but I according to my sources I think that Wagner and Bonga will have no playing time with the Suns and will be brought to the G-League and I think that the Lakers might be playing one of their playoffs series against Zion Williamson and the Pelicans.

  • LeB*tch will never be a GOAT. He always needs 2 other Top players to win. Tell LeB*tch he will never be at Jordan. Seat down little cry baby LeB*tch.

  • Kawhi will not play with Lakers he don't need super stars his not like kd if you can't beat them just join them big ass saleout

  • Lakers should get Khris Middleton

  • In the thumbnail LeBroom and AD look like they're both about to sing the patty cake song from The Color Purple.

  • Like if the warriors dynasty is done

  • Lakers got fleeced

  • Kawi went to squad thats why it worked ibaka lowry siakam gasol dam vanfleet out nowhere danny green big men dominant big ups to ibaka an siakam they balled out vanfleet

  • Just want topic to talk about

  • Yea all good till injury hits old man then wat an somebody gets jelous never work specially in la they wont get a title guarantee all for nothing mark my words

  • And three first round picks. Yeah....

  • This trade is an ethical disaster, and provides insight into collusion present within the league.

  • Gonna be a 500 team.

  • Now do Kyrie irving!!

  • Wow. This will make the Lakers a contender right away.

  • no shit, pelicans gm on pcp when he made this trade!

  • AD- "Yo your hair line go way way back" LEBRON- "Yea your eyebrows look like windshield wipers"

  • these people said the same shit last year, and the lakers didn't even make the playoffs.

  • Please get kawhi

  • Lebron lookin like Thanos out here. Making niggas disappear real quick lol

  • Where and what the hell are the pelicans?wait let me Google it

  • They look gay in a f__k up gay world. cover your booty cheeks next time

  • LJ and AD= Title contenders 😎

  • We got him

  • Just because they got Davis dont mean nun

  • NEED a new PG...they have SF PF and C but....SG and PG are pretty wide open.

  • Come on back Kobe

  • Pelicans won... a new drama season.

  • Lonzo, Zion , Ingram , Randle , BolBol .

  • Pick and roll all day . Lakers looking good to go again. Big Bodies to help Lakers win again



  • It seems like the Lakers are going to make the Pelicans into a playoff team.

  • So what happens this year when they get knocked out 1st round or not even make the playoffs again

  • Nah, LeBron too old now

  • Everyone who sees this sub to my channel and say you did in the comments and I will give you A shout out

  • Okay let me tell ya'll something the Lakers are getting to the Finals but look the Pelicans are going to get into the Playoffs they got Williamson, Ball, Rondo, They even got Julius and he had a great season but they definitely going to get into the Playoffs because it's not no little kids over their Williamson ain't no little kid he a big dog he the next big thing just watch he gone be something special. Next ya'll gone see me with a Marshall jersey on the Lakers man, if ya'll don't know my real name is Quavious Marshall. But all the people that got traded from the Lakers gone have to eat a lot of Gumbo.

  • This team has potential win it all but LJ and AD got stay healthy!!! they need Kobe come out retirement lol and pick up kyrie Irving that be sick lol

  • His has to be one of the dumbest trades the Lakers have ever done.

  • Yall smoking if yall think AD alone gon change that. Both them aint make the playoffs last year alone. They need 1 more to have a chance.

  • Good riddance those young dudes were doing jack all

  • Zion is fat and out of shape. He'll be out for the season by Christmas. Mark my words.

  • 湖人总冠军

  • Bron May be 35 but it’s still bron don’t forget he’s still the best player ever hands down

  • LA should give up KUZ
