There's a common theme here. Make re-signing Randle the off season priority regardless of the cost. I agree. I also agree with the order of your top three. It's interesting that Boogie isn't in there, but he's already verbalized that he wants to play for a contender. So has Randle. So do ALL of them! The interesting part about that is that perhaps Julius has no interest in playing for the Mavs and wouldn't consider the Hawks or Bulls either. Are the 76ers the team who will sign him to an offer sheet? I think he'll return.

On a personal note, I apologize for not posting recently. My wife had a complication with the VP shunt she had implanted in her head at the end of January. She underwent emergency brain surgery on Wednesday morning for bilateral subdural hematomas and did well following the surgery, although yesterday was a bit rougher and I have this knot in my stomach about today. She was in an extremely weakened condition going into the surgery and has dementia. I am very emotional right now, but need to stay strong. I'll keep you guys posted.

-Yeah one of my options I should've added was Re-Sign Randle and Sign Boogie. I don't like Boogie's injury though, an Achilles tear especially for Big's are tough to recover from fully.

-Sorry about your wife Kenny, my prayers are with you. Just keep us Posted Brethren.

I have to apologize as well, just been busy with random stuff. Kenny I have had the pleasure of meeting your wife and I know she is so blessed to have you there. Best wishes for her health and for yours as well - try not to let stress get the best of you. Would be nice if we had some good Laker news but we're in limbo right now, waiting on whatever decisions are going to be made in regards to the team. I've been watching ESPN and several analysts think Boogie might be headed to LA. The addition of him and George would make us instant playoff contenders and keep us young. Boogie doesn't have to be a beast, he just needs to patrol the paint and maybe become a better passer. His growth, maturity and humility should make him a great team guy at this point, and with the squad we have now I think his presence would be near-perfect.

Marcus Smart isn't leaving the Celtics. Clint Capela isn't leaving the Rockets. J.J. Redick isn't joining this Lakers squad at this point in his career. And again, I don't see LeBron leaving Cleveland. If he does, it'll be to another Eastern team. Of course I could be wrong about all this!

"Kuzma averaged 16.1 points and 6.3 rebounds a game while shooting 45% from the field and 36.6% from three-point range. Ball, who averaged 10.2 points, 7.2 assists and 6.9 rebounds a game, led all rookies by averaging 34.2 minutes of playing time."

So unexpected . . and so appropriate that both Kobe and Shaq missed signature shots before the ball was tapped out by Vlade :roflmao: to a ready Big Shot Rob.

Lets see how close I come but here's my projection of what the 2019 Lakers will look like:
PG Lonzo Ball
SG Brandon Ingram
SF Paul George
PF Julius Randle
C Brook Lopez
6th Man - Kyle Kuzma
7th Man - Josh Hart
8-12 is impossible to project as it could be a number of guys. The only way we can bring back IT or KCP is if we let Lopez go because of the Salary Cap. I would rather bring back Lopez because of our Center situation. IT will be 30 in February and injury prone as well and a huge Defensive liability. Hart is on a cheap contract which is great. KCP would want a huge contract.

-I think we re-sign Randle and bring back Lopez. We don't have a trueCenter that is any good without Lopez. Randle can play Center and probably will play a little Center when Lopez isn't on the court but he is a natural PF. Lopez is a Good scorer and can stretch the floor, I bet we re-sign him. Our only big Free Agent signing will be Paul George but it's a big one. Ingram will play the 2, George the 3.

-I could very well be wrong about Lopez and the Lakers FO may want to re-sign IT or KCP instead but that leaves our Center position very thin. When it comes to Bryant we have no idea what kind of player he will be? Zubac has a long way to go before he can get Good and he may not ever pan out?

When we Sign LeBron, what do you guys think about Nuggs changing the background to Kobe, Magic, Kareem, and LeBron? If he does that, he will never have to change the background again until LeBron retires. So that may be 3 or 4 years away.
