    i know no one said the Lakers sucked...Didn't say the Lakers aren't a glamour franchise either. I get the media loves to talk about LA as your mentioned they do have a but load of history and intrigue, I get all of that, never thought they didn't. I just think no matter where he winds up going it will be a media blow out and huge news and talked about 24/7... it's just that LA has a bigger media market and yes more history so naturally one would think he would be a "bigger" deal for those reasons if he went to LA.... I just think it would be very similar in any market.. the media would follow him no matter where he went...

    All those are longshots imo.

    I really think it is between two teams:

    LA and Cleveland.

    Cleveland is his home and maybe they can pull off some big trade but they have the experienced roster just not much flexibility.

    LA has a young team and enough for two max guys. They also have a very flexible roster. He also has homes in LA.

    Down to two. Who does he pick?

    If Lebron and PG13 do go to LA I will think Lebron will want them to do a handful of things and the first thing is trade for another All-Star.

    Trade Lonzo, Ingram (I like Kuzma the most out of those 3) and draft picks.
    Trade Deng.
    Try your to get Randle to take the qualifying offer or resign him. (Getting rid of Deng contract is huge in this process).

    He isn't going to Boston. Will Ainge kick the tires on it, you betcha but he's not coming here... I really hope they keep what they have right now and obviously get a healthy Hayward and Irving back...

    I think it's either LA or Philly and Houston has an outside shot... I think Cleveland would have had a good shot had they won the Finals but since they didn't and what they truly need to help Lebron they are out....

    He's absolutely correct. Lebron can't teach Lonzo nothing!
