Lakers Rumors: L.A. Still In Trade Talks With Cavs For Brendan Haywood
Lakers Rumors: L.a. Still In Trade Talks With Cavs For Brendan Haywood

The Los Angeles Lakers may have struck out this summer in terms of landing a big name in NBA free agency, but the team remains active on the trade market. Agreeing to acquire Roy Hibbert from the Indiana Pacers may be the first of many trades to come.

According to Sam Amico of FOX Sports, the Lakers remain in trade talks with the Cleveland Cavaliers:

After failing to convince LaMarcus Aldridge, DeAndre Jordan, Greg Monroe or Kevin Love to sign with the team, the Lakers shifted gears in free agency with second-tier options. Although no real game-changers agreed to sign, Los Angeles has done well this week with Lou Williams, Brandon Bass and the acquisition of Hibbert.

The Cavaliers have been trying to trade Haywood’s contract for the past week or so with a few teams showing interest. The Los Angeles Clippers and Brooklyn Nets were potential suitors with talk of Jamal Crawford or Joe Johnson heading back to Cleveland in return.

As for the Lakers, it is uncertain the asset(s) the team may be sending to Cleveland if they get a deal done. As Kurt Helin of Pro Basketball Talk states, Haywood’s contract becomes guaranteed in a few weeks time meaning Cleveland is anxious to get a deal done:

Haywood’s contract becomes guaranteed on Aug. 1, so as long as whatever team waives him by July 31 saves all that cash. Sadly, the piece of paper with Haywood’s name on it is worth far more than Haywood on the court right now.

Rumors of trade talks involving the Lakers have been circulating for the past few days. Nick Young may potentially be on the move as well as Jordan Hill and/or Jeremy Lin in possibly sign-and-trade deals.

Needless to say, it appears the Lakers brass is far from done in terms of rounding out the roster this summer.

They must be trading him for Young. & a draft pick most likely

  • Non-guaranteed contracts in the NBA now-a-days worth so much value than expiring contracts.

  • Lakers don’t really have anything to offer the Cavs for him. He will likely get dealt to a team who have the cap space to sign him so they can get a 10m trade exception to use either now or in January.

  • He’ll be waived by 2 Aug. They’re freeing cap space for HIbbert. We’ll see.

  • A few days ago I was just joking around when I said “I don’t care if we sign Kwame Brown, let’s just sign somebody”…….lakers FO took that joke way too seriously.

  • Get it done!!! Get a couple of draft picks and send Young n Kelly. That saves the Lakers almost 7 million. ..

  • Lakers want to trade young, Kelly and Sacre. If they can do this and get this guy, Lakers will drop him off before august 1st. Lakers looking for some cap room unloading, specially, Young contract. Still 3 years and 5+million per year.

  • The contract isn’t guaranteed. So they will cut him soon as possible. Sign Lou Williams & Brandon Bass, & Upshaw with the available cap

  • salary dump. why would anyone think the lakers would keep this guy. reading is hard stuff.

  • Do you know what non-guaranteed means? If not, it means that we can waive him and clear instant cap space.

  • I would like to know what the FO is doing… One day were looking good the next day chaos. One day were drafting Okafor next is Russell. Keep us in the loop.

  • That’s not the point. He’s a cap-saving move. We could dump Young and Kelly/Sacre and waive Haywood’s contract giving us ample cap room to spend.

  • Look guys, a lot of us wasn’t sure how the non guaranteed contract stuff works……..there’s no need to be insulting people for simply asking a question.

  • Damn dude, you need to learn about salary cap space before you comment and most importantly read the article.

  • I didn’t read the article all the way through, I made the mistake of thinking someone in the comments could give a simple answer WITHOUT insults or sarcasm ……..guess I was wrong

  • It’s all our fault that you can’t read the entire article and then someone gives you crap when you don’t know what you’re talking about. Welcome to the internet.

  • Lakers should’ve tried and offer a contract to Kevin Seraphin instead of trading for HIbbert.

  • too high of an expectation. You’ll learn soon if you haven’t already

  • If we’re doing the cavs a favor for a salary dump, I feel like we should get something good to sweeten the deal.

  • They don’t really need to make space for Hibbert. Current salary cap predictions show they are a little over the cap. If the cap numbers are more, which could happen than they don’t need to trade anyone. But, why have Young when you just signed Williams. It’s the same player basically.

  • Wait so the Cavs themselves can’t waive him? But the team he’s traded to can?

  • Did you read? He will be automatically waived and lakers get $10 M space in salary

  • I know it’s not my money, but I say just pay and don’t do business/help cavs/Dan gilbert

  • Why would the Lakers want more cap space?? Makes no sense unless they want to resign hill or have another trade planned.

    Sending Nick young to Cleveland would benefit both parties. Although, I’m sure Cleveland is asking the world for that non guaranteed contract.

    Then send Kelly n sacre to the pacers.

    In total, clears up around 8 mil I believe. seems pretty close to hills salary.
    Or, they might want that space for sign in trades. We shall see

  • Doubt we make a trade for Haywood, since the Cavs are really loading on talent (they they would use). The players up for trade are Kelly, Sacre, and Young. The Cavs are running out of cap (Irving, LeBron, Love, Thompson, and possibly adding Joe Johnson if trading Hayward to the Nets). They also have brought back Miller, Shumpert and other role players filling up the cap. In my opinion, Cavs will trade Haywood to a team they could get talent back that would be a vital piece in their team like a Joe Johnson.

  • As a fan i say the same thing, as a GM I do business. Like where your heads at tho

  • This site used to be a lot better, now you can find assholes that think they know everything, people that write things you can even understand, people getting personal with trashy wording.
    That is the unfortunate negativity of internet, any moron can send their opinion and there is no censorship of any kind.
    Let alone the trolls that spend all day trolling.
    In any case, don’t get discouraged, anybody is entitle to their opinion, as you have seen already.

  • so wait,instead of reading the article and getting a solid report,you chose to ask strangers and when you got insulted,it made you feel some type a way?

  • Salary’s don’t match with Joe Johnson. Its all about Jamaal and Swaggy

  • a 9 year old could comprehend that article.. and you didn’t. that’s some scary shit, bro. go crack a book.

  • I want the Lakers to clear cap space but I don’t want to see the Cavs improve I hope whatever deal the Lakers are working on it doesn’t included Nick Young, I would prefer him to be dumped on a non contender.

  • Cavs need team depth and versatility. They’re using Haywood to their advantage.

  • Good point, but I think they will go the other way, meaning, trying to dump salaries because they are already paying too much money. That being said, they will trade for non guarantee contract, and Lakers have none of those, i think

  • It remains to be seen. I think you can have a good player in exchange of young. If you can’t then why not. You better clear cap Space before you do your moves. I thought Kelly and/or sacre were gone in the hibbert’s trade. I guess we going to Know more
    The sure thing is that to do sign and trade we need to have more cap Space in order to be able to sign both hibbert and williams. I hope bb comes with the 2.8m room exception.

  • They’re going to do a trade regardless. Nick young is weaker than Joe Johnson, Crawford, and jr Smith.
    Might as well benefit

  • go hide behind a gang like you always do. you only attack when you see someone getting on them. 😀 thats hilarious

  • I guess if jr is out of the picture in cleve they are taking young as a replacement.

  • TOR gets: Nick Young
    LAL gets: Terrence Ross, Luke Ridnour

    we would get our starting SF and the raptors get a replacement off the bench for Lou Williams, we would also waive Luke Ridnour, or find him his 90th home lol

  • They haven’t agreed with Thompson yet…or did they? Cuz I heard they were far apart

  • Nope, he was the raptors staring SF this season, and SF is his actual primary position, SG being his secondary

  • Why would the Lakers want more cap space??

    Because they want to sign Bass. They are out of cap and only have the Room Mid-Level Exception at 2.8 mil.

  • Cavs trying to trade Haywood for Joe Johnson, or Jamal Crawford, or Nick Young. Hmmm which would they choose??? All good scorers.

  • Overall game. He can compete with jr Smith…but I think lebron would prefer Smith, Johnson, or Crawford

  • Luke Ridnour have to be leaving in a car now, the guy was traded 5 times already in a month. How many jokes can you make out of that?

  • ok..i would love and welcome Ross with arms wide open if that will happen..

  • After signing sixth man of the year lou williams, they’re looking to trade young and his 3 year contract, simple as that, they’ll send him to any team that wants him, they don’t have to get anything back, they just want him gone and want the extra cap space. It’s both a salary dump and for roster reasons. They don’t want young on the team, he clashes with byron, that’s why they signed williams, basically his replacement. And if they trade young it frees up an extra $5 million in cap space now, and frees up extra money in 2016, 2017.

  • I think lakers either get a veteran at a minimun, or they just ride with Kobe, Brown and Randle. Even clarkson can play it for a few minutes here and there with Russel and Williams in the back court.

  • if Nick Young gets traded, brown would be the second SF on our team, so he would have to backup no matter what anyways

  • Wouldn’t that be enough for bass? I assumed he would take the mid level exception. He averaged like 10 & 5 on a rookie squad, he’s 30 yrs old, and a bench player.

    If they’re going through all this trouble to sign bass at 6-8 mil a year…not worth it

  • Iso Joe may get him, but crawford and smith have the same game as young, create shots, attack basket and just score. I will say crawford and smith played better the past couple seasons but overall game is the same

  • whichever teams bites first… Joe Johnson would probably be the best option, he’ll hit the big shots for you down the stretch and he can start for you right away

  • well, it is better than having him at guard. Unless you want to put him as a water boy, that is his best position,

  • Bass is getting the $2.8 million exception
    By getting rid of Nick Young and Jordan Hill via S/T they would be under the cap by about $4 million or enough to sign say Gerald Green…

  • Whatever it takes to move Nick Young, I’m down. I’d pay another team just to take him far, far away from our young fellas.

  • Sacre wasn’t guaranteed. Why would they pick up his option and then dump him? He’s a decent back up Center.

  • Mostly a rumor, Cavs could load up with better talent/depth to help Lebron’s title aspirations.

  • i hope the Lakers will roll the dice on this one let N. Young go so they could sign a SF..

  • I am sure they will want to sing also Upshaw, unless he plays terrible in the summer league.

  • Crawford is a better ball handler and passer. Smith is more athletic but Nick when healthy is more consistent.

  • They will do it. otherwise they have a problem with LBJ. They are close, besides the fact that they have the same agent.

  • Cavs play in the East, so this does not really hurt Lakers unless they get to the Finals this coming season.

  • I would sign upshaw just so the clippers cant. he has too much potential to not sign.

  • Salary dump, lakers get the 2.8 M for Bass, trading Kelly and Sacre’s 2+ M for Hibbert’s 15.5 M + 3.2 M trade exception. Trade Nick Young for Terrence Ross.

  • RELAX PEEPS we are just trying to create roster spots.

    If they trade for him, it would be do dump either Nick Young, Ryan Kelly, Robert Sacre or a combination. I believe it was the Cavs that were interested in Robert Sacre last year. If we bring Hayward on we will dump him, and free up a roster spots to add the likes of UPSHAW.

  • I’m not saying this just because I’m a Lakers fan, but this team is going to be good. I don’t know if it’s playoff team good, but we’re going to be in it in every game. Think about it, the typical “young guys/rookies can’t help you win” usually that means 1 draft pick in his rookie can’t help you. Look at the young talent we have, Black who played like a solid big vet last year and will get a bigger role with Davis out. Russell is the most pro ready player in the draft and won’t play his best ball yet, but he will be a solid contributor. Randle has really matured since last year, and he’s watched a bunch of film, lost weight, and the word around the FO/players is that he has blown away everyone in their (why they weren’t reluctant to trade him), also has a 3 point shot added to his game. Anthony Brown played 4 years/graduated in college, which shows his maturity is already in line. Jabari Brown proved that he’s basically a replica of Ellington, so he can knock down his shots. Clarkson blew us away last season, especially after working out with Nash and Kobe’s mentorship, don’t forget he put on weight and I bet has worked more on his jump shot. Nance I also believe will contribute in spurts. Not saying these guys are making us a great team, but we’re not a bad team. We may also bring in Upshaw, whom I also believe will be a nice contributor.

    The only problems at hand is whether we can play defense, can Kobe remain healthy/efficient, what kind of Hibbert are we going to get (All Star Hibbert or bum Hibbert), consistent Young with D or neither (if he stays), and finally can every player remain healthy. I really like this team, maybe doubting Bass’ signing since we have Randle, Black, and Nance/Kelly, but even Bass may work out. Looking at the Spurs core and everyone saying it’s a Finals team, just makes me laugh due to their age, they got beat by a younger and hungrier Warriors team, how can they compete with them or the Thunder. The Lakers have a nice mixture of young talent, and maybe need a few more vets to be a solid team this year. No doubt in the future, this will be a good team.

  • Kobe at small forward actually helps him plus allows Clarkson, Russell, Randle to play together.

  • Reason we haven’t heard about Bass’ contract terms yet. They’re also trying to conserve as much cap space to sign players still. I get what you’re saying though. Williams cancels out Young and Sacre and Kelly are expendable.

  • Damn hope you get it together, unless you’re in the 2nd grade. *

    There, i fixed it for you.

  • i can see us being around the 9th to 12th seed, i’ll be stoked if we reach the 8th seed, but our ceiling right now looks around 9-12

  • They’ll be a 35-40 win team next year so 8th or 9th seed seems about right. Of course you can’t predict injuries but if they stay healthy I can see it. Much improved.

  • Major point here is Maturity, mentally and Physically. These are 19 years old kids that play how many games in college, 15? there is how many games in the NBA 82, without play offs? so they need to mature their bodies, and their mind. It is not easy, to play every two days and stay in it, game after game. But I am sure at least we can see some flashes of what to expect in the future.

  • Exactly, he does not need to push the ball, does not need to guard the fast guards, he can jump shot, and play the post in isolation.

  • It makes sense because we’ve heard the Cavs were interested in Sacre before trading for Mozgov in mid season and with Sacre being the backup; LBJ will make Sacre look like a decent starting center behind Moagov.

  • everybody is entitle to their opinion, if you do not like it, don’t read it. I agree is too long to read it, but let the guy express his excitement, we are all on the same boat, we all want the best for the Lakers.

  • stop trolling, get a life, men, really sad to be in a place you do not even care.

  • Weren’t the Cavs also offering a draft pick with Haywood so either Osman or Pointer?

  • Crawford’s a better fit. But if they deem Young worthy… then by all means.

  • I’m rooting for this kid Upshaw. Whatever the lakers end up doing – cap space, trades…I hope the kid makes the team. I think there’s a lot of potential! I’m as excited by what he may eventually bring as I am about Russell & Randle…

  • In a trade I would like either: a center to back up Hibbert and allow Upshaw, a true SF, or draft picks.

  • I actually have a life. Since it’s only one of me, it would be man, not men. I actually care a lot thank you very much.

  • Draft picks is what we need, we need some assets!, but a backup centre would be nice too

  • ME TOO…i like this kid i hope the team will sign him..he will be the next H. Whiteside in this batch of rookie’s

  • Sorry, I can’t undersatnd why we would do that. Let’s stay with the kids & if we need a backup we need to have one backup to play center.

  • Lol I was just kidding, but Lakersnation does mentioned that the two teams are in serious talk.

  • Everyone says we need draft picks. Aren’t J.C, Randle, Russell, Upshaw, Brown, Nance, and hopefully Justin Anderson enough for awhile?

  • lmfaooo jk but someone said that he heard cody allen was pulled from the game and has been traded with brendan hawywood for Jamal Crawford. Don’t know if it’s true.

  • Trading Young($5,219,169), Kelly($1,724,250), and Sacre($981,348) for Hibbert, and Haywood and then releasing him would leave the Lakers with $7,924,767 in cap space relief minus the extra 750k-1 million for Lou Williams and we can get all the kids signed including Upshaw, and maybe even Gerald Green so lets take a look at how we could look……
    PG-D’Angelo Russell
    SG-Kobe Bryant
    C-Roy Hibbert
    SF-Gerald Green
    PF-Julius Randle
    2nd Unit—-
    PG-Jordan Clarkson
    SG-Lou Williams
    C-Robert Upshaw
    SF-Anthony Brown
    PF-Brandon Bass
    Parolees….
    PF-Tarik Black
    SG-Jabari Brown
    SF/PF-Larry Nance Jr
    thats a damn nice team with a good bench and lots of firepower with some potential game changing rim protection….

  • The Cavs have until Aug 1 to waive him – it is a non-guaranteed contract, however, they want to trade his contract to a team that either wants him or wants to open up cap space. Williams contract basically used up the rest of the cap space, which leaves the Lakers with only the Room Mid-Level Exception of 2.8 mil.

    Example: Cavs get Young at $5,219,169, and say Kelly at $1,724,250 = $6,943,419. Haywood’s team option salary is $10,522,500. That leaves the deal 3,579,081 short. The max cash in a trade for the team in a year is 34. mil, so to make it up you would have to add say Sacre at $981,348 to get under the 3.4 mil max cash in the deal. Now Haywood would come to the Lakers who would not pick up his NG salary making him a UFA, and they would open up Young’s, Kelly’s, and Sacre’s Salaries to sign Bass and possibly another PG, with the $7,924,767 in cap space.

    Or if the Cavs had interest in Carlos Boozer, the Lakers could package him in a sign and trade along with Young, which would easily fit within the 10.5 mil of Hayward’s trade value. In this case though, it would only open up Young’s $5,219,169 salary in cap space, which could sign Bass.

    Clear as mud, but it covers the ground. 🙂

  • Looks like Cavs want Swaggy for Haywood. We get rid of Young and a lot of space after we waive Haywood to sign Bass, a small forward, and eventually Upshaw. Kelly and Sacre are probably heading to Indiana for Hibbert.

  • Well they cant let everyone know because people like you would sit here and argue over it, and besides that its NONE OF OUR BUSSINESS.Unless you have millions to help them out.

  • I don’t know what the point of signing Bass was. Tarik Black is more than capable of backing up Randle and even playing Center for some small ball.

  • experience and veteran leadership is vital in the development of rookies and other young players..

  • I think Black will see Center Time and hopefully let Upshaw develop. Bass at PF.

  • Final Roster?

    C: Roy Hibbert / Robert Upshaw / Tarik Black

    PF: Julius Randle / Brandon Bass / Larry Nance

    SF: Terrence Ross(ur opinion) / Anthony Brown

    SG: Kobe Bryant / Lou Williams / Jabari Brown

    PG: D’Angelo Russell / Jordan Clarkson

  • Don’t let it bother you they have all done the same thing as you, but they just like to act like they are better then every one else–and they really are not.

  • Is signing and trading Jermey Lin for Justin Anderson even slightly possible? Since they recently signed Barrea and have Harris/Felton. Seems like after trading Young, Kelly, and Sacre for salary space from Waiving Haywood and and acquiring Hibbert, we need to sign Bass with 2.8 of the almost 7 million. Either we sign and trade Lin for Anderson, or sign someone like Gerald Green.

  • Sign Vander Blue as well. Blue passes to Green who passes to Brown back to Green who swings it to the other Brown who finds Black for the dunk. I want to see that in a game.

  • I will be completely satisfied once we finally get rid of Sacre, Kelly, Young, and sign or trade for a starting Small Forward. Watching summer league July 10th will also be a nice relief.

  • Why would the Cavs waste their spot for a 10m player on Nick Young? Seriously they can get a lot of better players than this. Not to mention if they trade with a team with actual cap room they get a trade exception.

  • Because they know Smith is not coming back. Young is that type of player, and it looks like Joe Johnson is not happening because they’re already way over the cap without even signing James or Thompson yet. They give up 10M for 5.5M in young, and use that extra 4.5M on either lebron, Tristan, or delly.

  • Salary dump, waive Haywood, trade Young, Sacre, and Kelly. Receive cap space for Bass, Upshaw, and a Small Forward.

  • They’ve already signed their JR Smith upgrade with Mo Williams. Nick Young is a clown who makes JR Smith look like an All Star.

  • Mo Williams will back up Kyrie. They know Irving is injury prone so they have reassurance at that position.

  • He will do more than that, he will be their offensive bench guy, will play the 1 and 2 probably with Delli if they re sign him cause he is also a poor defender. Nick Young will not be netting the Lakers anything. Other than a throw in guy to make the Hibbert deal, or maybe find a team who will give up a second rounder for him. His contract is longer than people can handle his circus act.

  • 35-40 wins will not take to the playoffs in the West dude. You got to break above .500 wins to even be consider 8th seed in the West. Your comment would be true if Lakers played in the East sadly.

  • Must be a three team deal, because I can’t imagine what the Cavs would want from the Lakers.

  • The 7 million is going to Lou. We have no cap space, have to sign Bass on the MLE.

    Edit: nevermind, looks like you are talking about the money we would save from Hayward. I agree, we could use that space to do a sign and trade with Lin most likely.

  • My name is Hoang Nguyen and I hate the Lakers. I’m also a sixes fan pretending to be a bucks fan.

  • GET YOUR BITCH ASS OUT OF THIS FORUM BEFORE I FUCK YOUR SLUT OF A MOM IN HER ASS AND MAKE YOU FILM IT WHILE YOUR NECK IS TIED TO A BELT HUNG ON THE WALL

  • Can’t wait to finally find out where you live and murder your entire family in front of you.

  • His name is Hoang Nguyen. A fake ass Bucks fan who is actually a 76ers fan.

  • Ryan Kelly and Robert Sacre to Indiana for Roy Hibbert. Trade peanuts for Haywood to waive him and get the $10M to sign Williams and Bass. Trade Nick Young for Terrence Ross.

  • HAHAH he just serached up a random police station HAHAHA fucken clown pathetic.

  • Hoang Nguyen you must be a sad pathetic virgin to be posing as a Bucks Fan.

    76ers Takers for life LOL

  • He has played both the 2 and the 3 in his career. This year I see him playing the 3.

  • If we can make this trade,while also getting rid of sacre swaggy and Kelly and also somehow acquiring a small forward, I’d say as someone who has been watching this ugly decline, that we deserve an A+ for our off season.

  • I already could see this happening from a mile away. The Lakers will end up signing Gerald Wallace to be the defensive athletic small forward they seek. Wallace is getting waived by the Warriors and be sure to know the Lakers will sign him.

  • Well around the 7th-8th spot, the record should fall a bit, due to the Clippers losing DJ, Blazers losing Aldridge Batum and Wes, teams getting older, and other factors . I do agree with you that record won’t be enough to secure a playoff spot tho

  • Well, I didn’t mean they’re different. it’s obvious they’re similar.

    But the other guys Overall game is superior to youngs. Whether it’s consistency, fg percentage, handles, team importance, and ease of scoring.
    They all bring the same or similar things. But the other guys do it better

  • Lakers are back on the rise, fastest team on the rise is LAL. Scary team.

  • They probably keeping him as a bench player. He’s replacing David Lee.

  • Problem is, the agent is using the players as leverage, LeBron is using Thompson as leverage, and Thompson is dumb enough to wait for LeBron instead of cashing in with Cleveland or elsewhere.

    Things can turn sour fast.

    What kind of roster improvements was LeBron looking for???

  • C: Roy Hibbert | Robert Upshaw | Tarik Black

    PF: Julius Randle | Brandon Bass | Larry Nance Jr.

    SF: Gerald Green or Dorell Wright | Anthony Brown

    SG: Kobe Bryant | Lou Williams | Jabari Brown

    PG: D’Angelo Russell | Jordan Clarkson

  • What is he going to accomplish? His contributory capacity continues to dwindle it, and each morsel of salary-cap space is invaluable at this stage while it’s as inflexible as it is.

    Unless he’s going to be an immediate waive-off, which I’m trusting is the tactic behind it, this move is completely fruitless.

  • I think we could go after Dorell Wright after Haywood’s salary dump and trading away Young, Kelly, and Sacre.

  • Veteran minimum because he got paid huge in the last season of his super big contract, he will get bough out by GSW. Lakers get a steal of a deal, he plays great defense and he is a athletic player, he just got buried on the Boston bench because the small forward position was given to the young guys since Ainge wanted to tank very badly but it backfired on Danny Ainge and the Celtics made the playoffs with the young guys leading the way. Wallace was the odd man out because of his age and actually he is way more rested and ready to have a big season as long as a team gives him a chance to show it off.

  • The only fruit here is you homie. Trolling people behind a keyboard, get a life.

  • Better hope that vote go through or the Bucks will be in Vegas or Seattle. I would say you have bigger fish to fry.

  • Gerald Wallace is only 32 years old, he has a good 3 years left in the NBA.

  • Seattle? LMAO, the city that lost their 46 year franchise because they were bad a few years and fans decided to boycott them by not going to games? dont let a sonic fan fool you, they’re liars. Sonics had the worst attendance in sports from 2003-2008.

  • It baffles my mind that people think Clippers aren’t a playoff team just because ONE player left. Clippers got worst for sure on the defensive end without DJ but they are still a playoff team. I predict Clippers being 6th seed at best and 8th seed at worst. Most likely a 1st round exist

    Idk but my prediction is….
    1. Thunders (healthy)
    2. Warriors
    3. Spurs
    4. Rockets
    5. Grizzles
    6. Clippers
    7. Mavs
    8. Suns, Pelicans, or Jazz

  • lol Warriors wanted to get rid of lee cause of his contract. Why would they keep another player with a huge contract? Both in the final year.

  • Space. They can waive Haywood and pay nothing. Free’s up 10mil while probably dumping 1 or 2 guys to the Cavs as well.

  • Technically the Cavs are screwed if they can’t trade Haywood. Can’t trade Haywood means can’t sign Tristan Thompson. Can’t sign Thompson means no LeBron James since James and Thompson are a package deal.

  • Funny thing is you know she wouldn’t touch him with a 10 foot pole if he wasn’t an NBA star. Harden’s not the most good looking guy on the block, but him being a star athlete and his paycheck can make you change your opinion.

  • Those are two the Bucks have to worry. Milwaukee better fork over the cash for a new arena. 250 mil. That means no more free games on TV buddy.

  • no i think lakers should sign kenrick perkings and also joel anthony bench centers lakers

  • Nah I think its because Lee didn’t fit with Kerr’s game plan. Lee went from a starter to being replaced by Barnes and Green.

  • James can be such a drama queen sometimes. He has Dan Gilbert and the Front Office in a vice grip as well.

  • He’s not a Bucks fan. His name is Hoang Nguyen who is posing as a Bucks fan. He’s a fan of the 76 Tankers.

    Look this clown up on facebook, he’s from Philly.

  • 16 Mr. Hoang Nguyen. LOL what does that make you fake ass Bucks Fan

  • No one is reminding you of anything Mr. Nguyen. You’re here on a Lakers blog site idiot. Don’t want to hear it? LEAVE

  • Congrats. Probably the biggest achievement in your pathetic life. You’re mother must be so proud LOL

  • Forget about the Bucks, this guy is not a Bucks fan. He’s a poser for the 76 Tankers

  • How does that save the Lakers almost 7 million when Young is 5+mil yr and Lou Williams is 7 million per yr. We still don’t know how much BBass will cost us and Hibbert will cost us about 17mil for this season.

  • Haywood offers the Cavs a chance to add a player worth 12.5m to a roster that is already heavily into the luxury tax – could be paying as much as 250million. Or if they give up Haywood with an asset such as a pick, or one of the 3 guys they picked up in the draft to a team who has cap space, then they can get a 10.5m trade exception which means they can sign a player for that amount by the jan trade deadline. I think they will likely take this route as it offers them flexibility later on in the season if things go wrong with injuries etc.

  • So you’re a poser? Do you wear your mom’s high heels and wigs too? Do you pretend to be a chick name Yolanda? GTFOH!

  • Kobe Bryant: $25,000,000
    Nick Young: $5,219,169
    D’Angelo Russell: $4,252,600
    Julius Randle: $3,132,24
    Ryan Kelly: $1,724,250
    Robert Sacre: $981,358
    Larry Nance: $963,000
    Tarik Black: $845,059
    Jabari Brown: $845,059
    Jordan Clarkson: $845,059
    Anthony Brown: $845,059
    TOTAL: $43,807,794

    Minus:

    Nick Young: $5,219,169
    Ryan Kelly: $1,724,250
    Robert Sacre: $981,358
    TOTAL: $35,883,017

    Add:
    Roy Hibbert: $15,514,031

    Lou Williams: $7,000,000
    Brandon Bass: $2,800,000
    TOTAL: $61,197,048

    Cap Space is approx $69,000,000
    Which means that space that’s left will be to sign Robert Upshaw, and get a Small Forward whether it’s free agency, trade, or sign and trade one of our players from last year.

  • His name is also Hoang Nguyen and he lives in Philly. If you find this clowns real address let me know.

  • cavs-lakers-clippers possible trade:

    sacre&kelly to clippers
    crawford to cavs
    haywood to lakers

    not sure if this will happen though

  • Milwaukee was 15-67 2 seasons ago
    and last season were a 6th seed in a week ass east, where they were eventually beaten by 50+ points to get kicked out of the 1st round.
    They signed Monroe to a max contract who can’t defend the rim.

  • Screw the SF and let it be Kobe, Brown, and Nance. Save the money and just get Upshaw. Next year with the new NBA TV deal we will have EVEN more cap space. Get Kevin Durrant and another all-star in the same room and have them both sign max deals

  • You forgot Roy Hibbert trade kicker 2.3m which Indiana will pay but still counts on Lakers cap.

  • They can, but they want to find a team dumb enough to give them assets for Haywood instead.

  • 1st round exit without DJ Clippers fan. Your 4 year spot into the playoffs and still no chips.

  • Hi. My name is Hoang Nguyen and I hate the lakers. I’m also a sixers fan pretending to be bucks fan.

  • With the trade kicker and that eventual roster, the team salary will be around $64,000,000. Sign Upshaw if he impresses at the Summer League, and have whatever is left to see what last player they see fit to sign.

  • C:
    PF: Griffin/Davis
    SF: Pierce/Johnson
    SG: Reddick/Crawford/Stephenson
    PG: Paul/Rivers

    Congrats on your old ass SF, essentially 4 SG’s a fat ass for a backup PF, and absolutely no C’s.

  • By the time doc rivers and his son are done with the clippers, they will be back to the #1 lottery and drafting another Olowokandi.

  • What do you call something that has come and gone? The 2011-2015 Clippers.

  • With the #1 pick in the 1998 NBA draft, the clippers selected Michael Olowokandi.

  • Its really sad. Clippers been into the playoffs for 4 year stright and still no chips. Should have taken maximum advantage to take over LA while the Lakers are down? Hell they might not even have a division banner with the Warriors rising.

  • Hold on… we haven’t gotten rid of Streaky no D, Dance’in Sacre and Great Ryan Hope yet….

  • So the Clippers give up Crawford for Kelly and Sacre???? lol no way. Terrible trade for Clips. Unless you were going for that haha

  • available cap was 23 – 17 for hibbert = 6 mil leftover
    trade swag n kelly contracts (already on books) = 7 mill
    pay bass the 6 and pay lou the 7…we need that extra $$

  • Maybe after Mitch trades Young he could give Marshon Brooks a camp invite, right? 66 point scoring machine!

    You clown.

  • Your 2015-16 Los Angeles Clippers ladies and gentleman

    C:
    PF: Blake Griffin
    SF: Paul Pierce / Wesley Johnson / Jordan Hamilton
    SG: JJ Redick / Jamal Crawford / Lance Stephenson / CJ Wilcox
    PG: Chris Paul / Jordan Farmar

  • will scrap for the 8th seed…. never winning a championship. we’ll reach the WCF before they ever get out of the first round again.

  • Didn’t Farmar choose some Israeli team over playing for the Clippers another season? Don’t blame him.

  • Cavs might also include one of their draft picks to Clippers. That’s what they offered previous to the draft.

  • lol gotta feel sad for fans of such failure teams. lol clipper-chokers. lol still waiting to qualify for the wcf. you are a bunch of losers.

  • Stop replying to the troll and just flag, obviously he’s not a clipper fan, buck fan, celtic fan… most likely a Lin fan

  • and this trade is possible (for clips) because they already hit the panic button. lol

  • YOU are a 28-year-old virgin. A loser. You support three different teams based on your mood. You will end up in a mental asylum. Matter of time.

  • Shut up stupid fool. Dumb asses like you are not welcome here. Go back to Clippers website or Celtics or to whatever team your delusional mind makes you think.

  • Damn, that’s certainly gonna happen. I guess he’s the worst case scenario for a laker hater being tormented by our success lol. I guess I’d feel like him too if the celtics win 5 championships in the next decade

  • 2015 Vegas Summer League Roster:

    C: Robert Upshaw | Tarik Black

    PF: Julius Randle | Larry Nance Jr.

    SF: Anthony Brown | Will Davis Jr. | Tony Mitchell

    SG: Jordan Clarkson | Jabari Brown

    PG: D’Angelo Russell | Xavier Munford | Dwight Buycks

  • you are the one who’s gonna commit suicide. you are so bored, you make inflammatory remarks about a stranger. you let a team that YOU SUPPOSEDLY HATE influence your life so much. Feel sorry for you kid. Get some help. I’m serious. I’m probably double your age. Take my advice.

  • LOL!!! Odds say you’re 17,000 times more luckier to kill yourself than a laker fan

  • Letts get it done, staying under cap this year is important , the way it increases for repeat offenders is brutal soo staying under this year means when the Lkers do get the high dollar big names they will not be hit with double whammy too soon to make a run for the title. Cleveland is destined to be way over cap so if they can add some players they like and pick up a tradable piece it allows them to chase some players during the season. this could be a win for each team

  • In all honesty man just get a life and get off your computer. Go and be a productive human being in society instead of sitting behind your keyboard and trolling fans on a Laker forum. You are not funny or original, its just annoying.

  • you are the one who’s gonna commit suicide. you are so bored, you make inflammatory remarks about a stranger. you let a team that YOU SUPPOSEDLY HATE influence your life so much. Feel sorry for you kid. Get some help. I’m serious. I’m prolly double your age. Take my advice.

  • One hundred percent better effort than Nick the brick. That;s the issue. Duh, “Nick the brick the all-time best 6th man Lol.”
    #cone

  • there’s lot of help out there for folks like yourself. find a good therapist.

  • and rumor has it that the clippers had no interest in retaining deandre jordan’s services either.

    lol

  • tony mitchell will play some SG since J Brown got injured and out for 2 SL games

  • so if we keep Young, that’s 2 mil/yr cheaper and we still don’t know how much Bass is going to cost us, probably a lot more than Kelly ???

  • they’ll still be decent, but their days of challenging for a title are done.

    DONE

  • Here’s a therapy line (323) 284-4423. I believe it might be the first step for you getting back to living a normal productive life

    I pray for u

  • lol wonder when they were legit contenders.. maybe only last year.. but they choked as usual. it’s over for cp3. he should have been a laker, might have achieved some success.

  • Ok, Clippers fans, it’s on and crackin:

    1) Clippers fans be like: “Thank God Dr. Jerry Buss allowed us to rent a room at the Staples Center. I feared for my life at the Sports Arena.

  • yep. he’s on the wrong side of 30 now. i don’t see the clips getting out of the first round.

  • Deandre OHHH NOOOO, anyways they got McGee >>> Deandre Bwahahahahha, and paul pierce pretty solid team and a very young core too bwahahahahahaha

  • ^^what he says. we all want you to get better, kid. you can troll here all day long. we don’t care. at least get better.

  • Clippers fans be like: “How come Ralph Lawler don’t know how to pronounce ‘Los Angeles’ correctly?”

  • Stop replying to that retard and just flag his comments. He enjoys the responses.

  • feel kinda bad for him. definitely the best overall PG since jason kidd.

  • ralph lawler and mike smith are racists, just like sterling was. they should have gotten rid of all of them simultaneously.

  • lol and think about this. can understand if players or teams are tormented by our success. but this guy is just some ordinary joe. lol and he’s so tormented. god help him.

  • Hahaha hell yeah!! I remember when clipper fans used to get robbed on mlk and Hoover lol. Must suck being a clipper fan, seeing your team lose and then get robbed by some Rollin 40s hahahaha

  • Do you know how it feels when we are all talking about how his contract can save the Lakers cap space while you come out and ask why we need a player like this with a hefty contract

  • the clippers need to get the hell out of staples center… the lakers have hung five banners in that building. it will never belong to the clippers.

    NEVER

  • Why they’re last place in Los Angeles:

    1. Chick Hearn (Lakers)
    2. Vin Scully (Dodgers)
    3. Stu Lanz (Lakers)
    4. Bill McDonald (Lakers)
    5. Ralph Lawler (Clippers)

  • a recent poll of sports teams’ popularity in los angeles had the lakers at the top (naturally) and the clippers in fifth.. behind the LA GALAXY!

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

  • why? because he’s not white? all you clippers fans are racist just like sterling.

  • have you been to clits nation lately…it’s so sad there with your fans calling their own team as the “nightmare team” next season.

    I pity all of them much like the shitty Lakers the past two seasons…and you know what it’s not gonna end. Blake’s thinkin’ of leaving …tsk tsk enjoy your stay here we’re happy to have you.

  • this game is in the refrigerator, lights are out, eggs are cooling the butters getting hard and the jellos jiggling!

  • sure the kid has never a) kissed a girl, b) played ball, c) made a friend, d) smoked pot, e) had sex… lol

  • To all Lakers Haters seeing this please Describe to me how much you hate the Lakers in one paragraph?

  • When all a Clippers fans can say is “fakers” that’s when you know they’ve run out of shit to say.

  • What kind of person does this? I hope you’re not a grown man that would be sad.

  • No Barnes to protect Blake. No DJ to protect the rim. No David Stern to facilitate the next star player. No free agents coming to play with 30 year old CP3. Your time is running out Cinderella. LMAO! back to the lottery you go Clipper fans.

  • I fukin hate the lakers because they win so much…….so many championships……its not fair……….i just want to live to see the clippers win 1.

  • enjoy starting with ryan hollins and blake griffin on the front court. lol. durrat and westbrook got an easy ticket to the basket.

  • clippers fans are so dumb. remember when they were protesting sterling’s ownership of the team?? then they would buy tickets to the game.. not realizing that they were putting their money into the pockets of a proven racist slumlord.

    IDIOTS

  • In a couple of years CP3 and Blake are out so watch for them being on the trading block in middle of the year , the Clips are back being the clips !!! Go back to SD where you have always belonged !!!!!!

  • Lebron, CP3, Wade are vacationing together in the Bahamas, SOMETHING is in the works! Lebron & wade wanna reuinite Clipper Land, but i dont wanna get ahead of myself here, i would sound like a Faker tanker fan.

  • most of their fans are disloyal laker fans..it’s pathetic… don’t think clippers ever had a strong fanbase. all converts.. they ought to move to seattle or go back to san diego. go and jack it in san diego!

  • While some of you fans making fun of Kobe’s 25mil, Joe Johnson is getting paid 24.8mil next season, almost the same as Kobe.

  • maybe wade can sit on lebron’s shoulders and the two of them can replace deandre at center.

  • Here’s a perfect example why Clippers fans don’t know “winning.”

    Game 5, Clippers vs Rockets, 2015 playoffs, Clippers up 3 games to 1…Clippers are all of a sudden blowing their huge 4th quarter lead as Houston is thisclose to trimming the series lead and sending it back to Texas for Game 6…

    As the Clippers are malfunctioning, you would expect the ENTIRE Clipper fanbase to get on their feet and start cheering on their ballclub. Instead what you hear at Staples Center is SILENCE because Clippers fans don’t know how to react. They straight up panicked. LMFAO.

    Rockets showed these wannabes what’s up. And I can’t stand HOUSTON cuz they’re coached by McHale!

  • Al Haldie, may i remind you the women sensitivity group is down the hall, you wouldnt wanna be late. IDK how you guys end up in the basketball forum.?

  • Clipper Hall of Fame:
    Danny Manning
    Bo Kimble
    Benoit Benjamin
    Micheal Cage
    Gary Grant
    Micheal Oliwakandi
    Ken Norman

  • Yeah something is really in the works. MEANING CP3 will be out of Clits Nation before you know it. Nyahahahahahaha.

  • might not even be a trade for cap space it could be a trade for picks. we can trade for him and send back nothing

  • nice new logo, clippers. it looks like it was done by a remedial 6th grader in summer school.

  • The Clippers have lost their defensive anchor, and best rebounder, it’s a major blow both to their roster depth and their morale, there is a chance they collapse, not saying they definitely will.

  • the lakers are terrible, pathetic and not even close to being worth talking about. that being said, i will be here all day, everyday.. because for the life of me i can’t stop talking about them.

    — lakers haters

  • Hey Clipper, tell me who is the Clippers player from Kansas that the Clippers traded in order to get one of the 50 greatest players of all time and tell me who the Clippers acquired in this trade?

  • chris paul is going to be 32 in 2018 when he becomes a free agent and i guarantee he is going to leave the clippers………….also wont make it past the 2nd round.

  • This yrs lineup
    Russell
    Clarkson
    Kobe
    Randle
    Hibbert compared to last yrs
    Nash
    Kobe
    WJ
    Boozer
    Hill
    #Improvement

  • Dude I can’t wait once the Lakers take the season series against the lowly Clips this year.

  • watching highlights of Cedi Osmon. could be a nice project to take up. if we can get both Christmas and Osmon for this salary dump, Mitch needs to pull the trigger.

  • ‘d’angelo russell passes the ball better than any college player i’ve seen since magic johnson’

    — rick pitino

    so better than chris paul then..

  • More proof that the Clippers are wack:

    – They’ve got MALE cheerleaders. LMFAO

  • that would add money for us to spend but no sf’ that is better then young to add.

    we could just trade kelly and scare for him and a pick/s and waive him

  • The Lakers actually has a better chance than the Clippers. The Cavs wants Crawford more than Young, but without a good center as candidate, the Clippers may not find use for the cap space, and they will be reluctant to part away with Crawford without good use of the cap. Meanwhile, the Lakers just can’t wait to unload Nick Young.

  • Why are we even discussing the Clits , it’s over they are done . Clips will sign Perkins and officially become the Celtics old timers reunion tour , they should trade for Garnet and ask the NBA to allow bird and McHale to show up for cameos !!!!

  • fuck why am i working friday……im going to miss the game…….i never ever watch summer league games but this year i dunno im mad excited to see how our we play….for some reason I expect our team to go undefeated lol

  • Since Magic and Stockton, I’d say Kidd is the best pass-first PG. Nash was just simply overrated. After Kidd, it was CP3. Now it’s Russell.

  • i’m glad you limited it to mchale, because larry bird a’int walking through that door, folks.

  • The funny thing is, that’s the ONLY thing you can hang your hat on brotha. Lakers are something like 97-38 all time against the Clippers. lmfao. I bet you your HOnda Civic hatchback that the Lakers win ANOTHER chip before your Clippers make the Finals!

  • lol its summer league i aint calling in sick……but if it was regular season i would have

  • up 3-2 in the series..

    at home…

    up by 17 points with a minute remaining in the third quarter…

    lose the series in seven.

    that is the DEFINITION of a choke, folks!!!

  • Patrick, just from your posts, I can tell your hate for the Lakers is for real, you don’t want the Lakers to have any relief, not even cap space. Unfortunately, the Cavs front office is trying to do business instead of hating. The Lakers are far from contention right now, what are you even worrying about? Lmao

  • nash as a player was overrated. nash as a passer is underrated. nash has 5 top ten offensive teams in nba history under his belt.

    nash is the best passer in nba history

  • well sir you don’t know this sport then. most overrated 2x MVP of all time. he just thrived within a great system.

  • Clippers fans think Blake Griffin is better than Charles Barkely. LMFAO…that’s how you know Clippers fans barely started watching the game in 2010

  • MAGIC is the greatest passer in history. are you kidding me? Even Kidd was a better passer than Nash.

  • Fakers 2006

    up 3-1 in the series against the suns nash golden era

    year kobe scored 81

    lose the series in 7.

    That is the real definition of a choke.

  • But A Brown is a SF, its his position! I think kobe will play 3 only in small ball. Id put Bass or Randle there before i put Kobe, and yes Bass plays the 3… KG and Perkins on the floor Bass played 3, Olynk and Sullinger on the floor Bass played 3!

  • but they arnt. im sorry nash is the besst passer in the nba history and the stats prove it

  • Griffin is a mediocre defender at best. Just a good athlete. Decent post moves. Decent passer. Average IQ.

  • Barkley had killer instinct and a much much better FLOOR GAME. Barkley was a point forward who had a plethora of post moves. Blake is nothing but a leaper. Dude I bet you were born in the 90s.

  • Houston is gonna have a problem, the Kadashians will turn James Harden into Jaimie Harden

  • The Haywood rumor might be smoke screen since Cuban really wants Booz and Lin and the FO is playing the game .

  • They will be bad, but not to the point that some Lakers fans are exaggerating. Clippers will be 6th, 7th, or 8th seed and will be bounced in the first round period.

  • he lead dal a top all time great offenisve teams and the suns to 4 all time top ten

  • and he played in that system! thats whole load of rubbish, his stats shows hes not overrated!
    so u saying everyone that played in that system did well ????

    if u telling me Nash is overrated then im sorry u dont knw the sport

  • Small Forward:
    1. Lakers use the guys they are grabbing to trade for a decent
    3-and-D sf, or
    2. They shuffle Anthony Brown, Kobe, and Nance this year, waiting to focus on getting a great small forward next year

  • Was that Conference Finals or 2nd rd? Something you haven’t been part of lol!!

  • And how many times have the Clippers choked in the playoffs in the last three years? lol, that’s right…EVERY TIME THEY PLAYED

  • PG: Smush Parker
    SG: Kobe Bryant
    SF: Luke Walton
    PF: Lamar Odom
    C: Kwame Brown

    nuff said.

  • how do stats prove it?? Nash career Ast avg: 8.5, Kidd career Ast avg: 8.7, Magic: 12.3!!! ARE U FUCKING KIDDING ME? NASH can’t even hold Magic’s jockstrap. I watched every game Magic played. He’s the greatest passer in history. if you are gonna argue with that, you are either a) ignorant, b) stupid, c) drunk

  • nash as a player was overrated and did not deserve the mvps but he is the best passer ever

  • Trad nick young for haywood And cut him before the deadline. Then attempt to sign Gerald green to a cheaper contract. Save some money . And possibly make a trade or 2 by Allstar weekend depending on how the season going at that time and team needs. But honestly I truly believe if D russle tunes out the be as half as good as we think hill be in his rookie year along with, kobe, Clarkson, and Lou will. Will have one of the top 3 trio of guards in the league and . Kobe just gotta allow the young guns to get off. Not to mention J Randell who I believe has the potential to be LeBron and Blake griffin like when it comes to being a absolute nightmare match up for ANYBODY!.

  • Nick Young, because they wanted Crawford at first, I guess they had a problem talking to the Clippers, so they switching to Young, JR Smith won’t be back to the Cavs, that’s why

  • I am guilty of being a die hard fan and can’t wait to see the rooks play , hope my boss is not reading these comments , hate to get fired for summer league !!! LOL !!!!!! .

  • They were up 3-1…but wait, that never happend apparently, lakers never played the suns in 2006 according to faker fans.

  • whole load of rubbish? a young amare? a young marion? you are stupid and ignorant. nash is a top-10 passing PG. he’s not even an overall top-10 pg.

  • Just being realistic, unlike a lot of deluded Lakers fans who believe every rumor that comes up on this site. Logic dictates that Haywood is worth 10m at least, Nick Young is not even worth his contract.

  • Fakers 2004-05 Kobe sure lead them to greatness, oh wait he was in court, litterally in court.

  • Clippers – Billy Crystal
    Lakers – Jack Nicholson

    Clippers – Clipper Darrell
    Lakers – Denzel Washington

    Clippers – MALE Cheerleaders
    Lakers – The Laker Girls

    Clippers – Staples Center RENTERS
    Lakers – STATUES outside Staples

    Clippers – Season Tickets at swap meet prices
    Lakers – WAITING LIST

    Clippers fans be like: “I can’t win.”

  • Since the clips are rebuilding how about a trade , Hill , Booz , Lin , R Kelly urinating , Swaggy for Blake !!!!!!!!!!!

  • if anyone thinks Griffin is even a top-5 player, they are either a) ignorant, b) stupid or c) drunk.

  • 1.the top 5 nba offesnive teams all had nash as the pg.

    2.nash’s teams have the best offensive rate in nba history.

    3. nash has the best assits/turnover ration for his teams in nba histroy.

    you need to rember the era magic played in was as a hole faster which inflated his assists per game and he played with 2 top 30 players all time and another 2-3 top 100 players

    kid played with better teams then nash did too.

    the stats prove how great of a passer nash was nash never played on a team that was less then top 10 in the nba in offensive abelity

  • An 8 seed up 3-1 against the best team in the league in ’06. Have the Clippers ever done that? Thought so.

  • soft…..i still cant believe we made it to the playoffs and were up 3-1 against hands down the best team during those years…….now if we had no banners then u have a point but we have 16 so if some years we lose its not a big deal

  • That team had Kobe and scrubs. The clippergirls were Lob city can’t miss loaded with ” superstars”And those chokers were up 3-1 and 19 points with five minutes to go in the third quarter of game five jackazz. Now that’s choking like no other!

  • if they return to San Diego, at least most of the Hispanic celebs will cheer for them.

  • Bro some of the worst players in our franchise history have rings, the best players of your franchise have top ten plays on espn..?

  • I don’t think none of these guys, Mitch always pull some shiet we can’t predict, like Hibbert trade, Williams signing and Brandon Bass, it looks like a brilliant plan B now, and plan A maybe just a formality knowing the chance is close to none.

  • Howard, Harden arent superstars now? WOW! still salty because howard called your franchise fakers??

  • Clippers love to recycle the Lakers trash. Great recycling program.

  • The leader of the Clippers (Doc Rivers) has like a 0-8 record in playoff elimination games. No wonder they’re called the L.A. Clipchokes.

  • nash and d’antoni’s system fit like hand and glove. i’d give you that. still don’t think he’s as good a passer as Magic, Stockton or Kidd.

  • barkely would be trash in this era of basketball. vhe was only 6-5 6-6

    he was luck to play in the watered down 90’s

  • lol when clippers starting winning games they asked clipper darell to refrain from using the name “Clipper Darrell”………how u gonna tell a man to stop using that name but when u were losing all those years and he supported yall it wasnt a big deal

  • Any team that openly recruits Wesley Johnson has zero aspirations for a title.

  • Clippers have a HISTORY of signing Laker rejects:

    1. Antwan Jamison
    2. Matt Barnes
    3. Jordan Farmar
    4. Wesley Johnson

    Need I say more?

  • you do need a therapist. day or night, you are always here, using three diff accounts. you have no life.

  • Clipper Darrell was the ONLY attraction in Clipperland til Blake and CP3 came to town. Sterling and co. are bunch of clowns!

  • Not until we get a nice 3.
    Unless Mitch expects to go all in on an outstanding 3-and-d sf next year.
    Guess I can be patient and enjoy our new look.

  • at least we lost to a great team (young Amare, Marion, Nash). you lost to a horrible team like Rockets. Mind you after being 20 up in the third quarter.

  • Like what, trade him for Anthony Davis, lol, Jamal Crowford and Nick Young are what they looking for to replace JR smith, they got pretty much everything else already.

  • nash was grat in dal too. the stats say nash is the great’s passer ever but thats it hes not an top 10 pg of all time. he played nearly 0 defense

  • They went to the Fakers thinking they were gonna win but then saw they were tanking and decided to come to the winning team of LA!

  • Barnes couldn’t help Orlando win a chip.
    Barnes couldn’t help the Warriors of yesteryear win a chip.
    Barnes couldn’t help the Lakers get to the Finals
    Barnes couldn’t help a loaded Clippers team get to the WCF

    Barnes is mediocre bro. But he is tough and a hard nosed competitor, I’ll agree to that.

  • This dude is a freaking waste of time. Why can’t he go to the world champion la clippers website ,oh right that’s as rare as, no nothing known to mankind is more rare,as in has never, will never happen.clippers suck donkeysrunLa

  • Unloading those salaries of Swaggy p. AND crew is great and it opens up roster spots.

  • You sound like no one knows this. The Cavs went for Crawford first, but the Clippers may not be interested, because they haven’t find an good candidate to replace DJ yet, so that cap space for them is probably not worth it to gave up Crawford. That’s why Nick Young became their secondary option

  • Don’t worry about choking anymore . . . you’ll definitely be swept by whoever you’re playing SHOULD you make it to the playoffs.

    I still give the Clits the 8th seed, coz you got CP3 and Griffin.

  • Especially when he’s getting into it at courtside with Floyd Mayweather lol

  • Clippers fans be like: “I wonder if my team paid Floyd Mayweather to sit courtside at our games just so we can get some TV exposure?”

  • Thats what our team needs tho, someone to do the dirty work. Im hoping Bass can take on the bad guy role for us

  • WES relishes playing for worst teams like the Lakers were last season OR will be worst teams LFOL

  • Faker fans be like: ”I wonder if my bumass team will win atleast 20 games next year”

  • Now that’s just stupid.Nash was a great passer but couldn’t carry Magic’ s jock dude.

  • Faker fans be like: ”Jack nicholson sitting courtside at a clippers game :'(”

  • We NEVER wonder how many games we win, because we KNOW sooner or later we’re gonna hang another banner. It’s called PRIDE brutha, something Clippers fans know nothing of.

  • Clippers fans be like: “I never knew Mark Jackson and Ron Harper played for us! “

  • Right. If you were starting a team and you could take any PG in his prime you’re telling me it’s Nash?

  • the amount of assists you average does not say if your a great passer or not.

    dal ran a system that was not pg ran. they played pricstonish.

    if you put magics per 100 positions vs nash per 100

    nash averages .6 less assits but 1.2 less turnovers. meanin nash was the better passer.

  • i used to tease my brother and sister, hoping to get a response, getting under the skin. but that was when i was 8. you are a fully grown man who tries to garner responses from a bunch of strangers. you need help.

  • faker fans be like tank for simmons 2016, and then in 2017 tank for Thon Maker!

  • Clipper fans be like: “It’s SUPER EASY to sneak into the lower level seats at Clippers games.”

  • Clippers fans be like: “We’ve been tanking since we moved to Los Angeles!”

  • I love trolls when they try to get under your skin….love it soooo much! I don’t have any skin to start with LFOL

  • lol nah man.. ,maybe until the age of 10.. even i used to piss everyone off.. but this guy never gets tired of it.

  • History proves the Lakers are the best franchise in the NBA and the Clippers are the worst franchise in the NBA.

  • Clippers fans be like: “Donald Sterling is a dumbazz for trading Byron Scott for Norm Nixon. Now the Lakers have three extra chips because of Scott.”

  • NO! but im saying hes not overrated!
    there other PG id take

    i would take Michael Jordan as my SG over Kobe
    does that make Kobe overrated ? NO it doesn’t

  • Does that mean Lakers get Simmons and Thon???? That is just not fair!!! Let’s VETO it!!!

  • Anyone who has ever watched a Clippers playoff game knows that Clippers fans have ZERO CLUE how to get loud in the postseason

  • Riddle: I’ve been in the NBA for 45 years. I have won only two division titles, I have no conference titles, I’ve never made the conference finals. Statistically speaking, I am the worst franchise in THE HISTORY OF THE LEAGUE.

    Who am I?

  • Nash, you mean big sexy from wwe? Cuz that other Nash can’t play anymore.

  • Even the Pacers and Suns have made the NBA finals. Clipper still seeking first Conference Final in 45 years.

  • clippers fans better relocate to Seattle by then. you’re gonna be thrown out of town.

  • i’ll bet your KIA that Lakers hang another championship banner in 3 years

  • To use him as a trading chip, or in case we don’t get the cash to sign Upshaw

  • Well for most their teams are losers since only one team wins it all every year. And the clippergirls ain’t winning one anytime soon.

  • The Lakers have a much better future than the Clitters. D’Angelo Russell, Julius Randle, Jordan Clarkson, Lou Williams, Roy Hibbert, Robert Upshaw, Larry Nance trumps 30 year old Chris Paul and Blake Griffin any day of the week. What happened you lost you’re big franchise center D’Andre Jordan but LOL you got that scrub Wes Johnson LMFAO LOL HA HA HA!

  • lol we won a ring five years ago. what tables? you haven’t reached a conference final in 45 yeas. fucking losers.

  • Bro youre doing homework on these high school kids, are you preparing for something.??

  • ure gonna be thrown out for being so mediocre. no conference finals in 45 years. we are a city of winners. can’t accept such mediocrity.

  • think you forget that these lists are based on facts. when you don’t reach a Conference Final for 45 years, you don’t deserve to be in town. Losers.

  • Clippers fans be like.. Our young gun point guard Austin Rivers is gonna shut down Russell and Clarkson!

  • With the 1st pick of the 2019 NBA draft the Los Angeles Lakers select, Marvin Bagley, III out of ……….. University.

  • Is that the table you were hiding under when they chocked and lost three straight last year, or the table D’Andre Jordan sat at to sign his new contract with the Mav’s this year?

  • The Clippers Curse continues…

    Shaun Livingston annihilates his knee as a Clipper and wins a chip in Golden State.

    Blake Griffin suffers major injury against the LAKERS during his rookie season and won’t win a chip until he leaves the Clippers.

  • Clippers fans be like: “You can buy Clippers playoff tickets on Craigslist for $15, parking included.”

  • Looks like Clipper Elvis may have left the building. Is it time for Lakers talk now?

  • they got CP3 too because Stern’s nonsense. they’d have never made the playoffs if not for unethical administration.

  • nah not possible they’re already negotiating with Sacre for nxt season. 40 mil for 2 yr contract

  • With the 1st pick of the 2020 NBA draft the Los Angeles Lakers select, Shemar Morrow out of ……….. University.

  • What team is that, you didn’t win anything, the GSW won, everyone else lost…. unless you win it all you didn’t win, you see it’s that stinking “We almost Won” attitude that makes you and the loser Clitters, and US the Los Angeles Lakers 16 time world champions.

  • LOL…I heard they also might sign Sasha Vujacic to replace Jamal Crawford as their sharpshooter as well

  • Baxter Holmes@BaxterHolmes
    Lakers G Jabari Brown expected to miss the first two Summer League games after being poked in left eye in practice Monday.

  • With the 1st pick of the 2018 EuroLeague Draft, the Clippers select Ivan Drago out of Lithuania.

  • lol no conference finals in 45 years… just keep saying that to yourself. you’ll realize the mediocrity

  • Clippers have not made a conf finals in 45 years. I don’t think ANY OTHER TEAM IN ANY OTHER SPORT has this bad a record. just can’t think of anyone.

  • He is a mediocre Player himself….. he’s what made us mediocre last year, so you can have him.

  • What’s the Clippers favorite vegetable…. The Art of Chokes of course …….

  • Young would be cheaper than JR Smith. Basically the same guy. So, Young + Kelly and/or Sacre is probably what is needed to make the math add up on a trade. The latter 2 are on 1 year deals, so no long term hit for the Cavs. We’ll see what happens. Would open up another $7-8M in cap room for LA too. Any decent SFs out there still?

  • clippers run LA = 40 year old playing tag on the forum. Giggling with every post hoping someone responds.

  • How do you sensitive guys keep getting into this basketball forum.. The sensitivity and feeling group is down the hall dont be late.

  • josh smith(sf/pf),gerald green,dorell wright or caron butler comes to mind..but im sure theres more..

  • Let’s hope so, as long as a player gives 100% effort on the floor (both ends) then that’s all one can ask.

  • Clippers fans be like: “Here kitty kitty kitty…”

    Lakers fans be like: “What up dawg”

  • 40 marks the number of how much the Clippers are going to crush the fakers next season in the first meeting.

  • No, just people like you have nothing better to do than come to this site and post stupid crap.

  • I guess my misunderstanding was that i didnt know we needed cap space relief. I guess everyone needs that tho 🙂

  • and 45 marks the number of years Clippers have been sucking in the NBA. 45 years and no conference final. lol. what a bunch of losers.

  • UHH, if they’re willing to may a big trade then Joe Johnson’s been brought up tho he should be getting paid $10 mil a yr. Other options out-there lol.

  • 40 marks the number of losses the Clippers will have next season without DeAndre Jordan.

    That’s right Clipperland…42-40 and OUT of the playoffs while the Lakers take the 7th seed at 49-33.

  • I’d much rather have Hibbert than Howard. but who knows, if he keeps loosing enough, he might want to come join your Clitters, loosing attracts loosing, and you guys have it down to a science.

  • But their offense sucks. Utah will definitely contend. But I believe Hibbert, Upshaw, Randle, Bass, and Black can handle Gobert, Favors, and the rest of the Jazz frontline

  • we’re better offensively, yes. u know jazz allowed only 93 ppg last season (best defnese in the nba) and still missed the playoffs. they are on the right track tho. i’m not worried about Suns, Blazers, Dysfunctional Kings or T’Wolves. Only Utah. I know we can crush the Clippers. They have no defense. Their only defender is Chris Paul.

  • 6’6″ and he would STILL dominate the boards today, everyone thinks that the players are so much better today, but most don’t even have all the fundamentals down, Barkley knew how to get position, box out, time his jump, and pogo up a second time to get the rebound. He would get 10-12 rebounds a game minimum if he played today.

  • Kings might surprise people if Rondo can get it together. WCS and Cousins form a pretty formidable frontline. But the team I expect to do real well is the Pelicans and the Thunder will bounce back. Clippers are still the Clippers, they scare nobody.

  • YA.. but there’s something about that Kings team that doesn’t feel right.. look at the bunch of headcases. they will self-destruct. I agree about Thunder and Pels. I really hope Upshaw can do what Gobert’s done for Jazz. He needs to OWN THE PAINT. Like tell opp players to “drive at their own risk” coz they’re gonna get plastered by the big man.

  • I don’t know, Randle’s starting at the 3, it’s going to be
    Hibbert, Bass, Randle, Kobe, Russell,

    everyone’s like Kobe’s too old, or slow, or small to play the three, and then out of the other side of their mouth they say, Randle’s too young, or big or heavy to play the 3….

  • Okafor’s line today: 13 points, 9 rebounds, 0 blocks, 4 turnovers…. meh….

  • Even LeBron is scared to drive to the basket when Rudy Gobert’s manning the post. That’s the sort of PRESENCE and intimidation Upshaw must bring. Trust me, Gobert’s winning the DPOY this year. That kid is an absolute beast. I hope Upshaw can do something similar. Like tell opp players to “drive at their own risk” coz they’re gonna get hurt real bad. Upshaw needs to get real PHYSICAL.

  • His rookie numbers ARE better than Westbrooks, but why am I talking to a person with the intelligence of a tree stump

  • I expect Upshaw to make the team. He has all the resources and support he needs to make it in this league. Hopefully, he has the right peer group surrounding him. If I were Kobe, I’d take Upshaw under my wing and help him like he helped Bynum. If Upshaw can make an impact and if guys like Nance, Bass, and ABrown can contribute significantly as key role players a la Ariza, Horry, Fox, Shannon Brown, etc the Lakers will be back in the thick of things sooner rather than later.

  • His Mommy and Daddy don’t pay any attention to him at home so he seeks attention from others online……

  • if Upshaw goes berserk right away (like 3-4 blks a game), we are making the playoffs. He’s the X FACTOR. We can get all the scoring in the world from Kobe and Russell. We need that solid rim protector. Think Hibbert’s past his prime.

  • wouldn’t go as far to say that. think Okafor will be a multiple-time all-star. like I said before, we thought Hibbert-Russell is a better fit than Okafor-Rondo. we had to pick one of the two (literally). i think everyone in FO knew before FA started that we’d end up absorbing someone like Hibbert or Noah (both on final year of contracts).

    i still think Okafor is a great talent. Such a rare gem in today’s NBA. in any other draft year, he’d have been the choice. but it’s tough to pass up on a potential once-in-a-generation talent like Russell.

  • or D) all of the above, if presented with a multiple choice, always choose all of the above.

  • I wouldnt mind Randle starting at the 3 but I dont think he will, i think might rotate to that spot along with bass. We probably get a SF soon with deal, but if not we still have Young and A brown. Our team we have right now is very versatile, most of our guys can play two or three positions.

  • I agree about Hibbert being past his prime. Hibbert will have 20-12-3 one game, then the next game he’ll disappear and score 9 points and grab 5 boards and foul out. UPshaw definitely has the UPside we’re looking for at the 5 spot.

  • yes. and the only way to give him the confidence is to give him serious minutes. i’d be disappointed and shocked if BS gives Hibbert 33 minutes, Black 15-18 minutes and Upshaw limited minutes. We need to invest in Upshaw.

  • Lakers who are looking to acquire more cap space with Brendan Haywood trade could be looking to add a SF such as Gerald Green or Dorell Wright. Stay tuned!

  • LBJ would never let Shumpert leave.. but imagine..

    Hibbert/Upshaw
    Randle/Bass
    Shumpert/ABrown
    Kobe/Clarkson
    Russell/JameerNelson OR any other vet minimum PG

    Playoff team.

  • Maybe you’re right.. We’ll see what happens because that’s the biggest hole on the Lakers roster. Anybody is better than nobody and both of them bring a scoring punch the Lakers could use.

  • That picture was probably taken in 2010 when the entire team got up to get their rings…..and you photoshopped SA vs LAL into it.

  • I honestly think Hibbert is good for 25 min, and Upshaw should be Roy’s backup. Black should be used at PF to back up Randle and Bass. Randle can slide over to SF depending on the matchups as well. Upshaw should get at least 15 minutes minimum so he can develop.

  • It’s funny these dumbass clippers fan rank on the Lakers so much but they have nothing to show for it. oooo….2-3 years of making to the second round (not to mentioned that choke last year)? That team even gets our trash players (i.e. barnes, farmar, Jamison, there are other) NOW Wesley “I fucking suck” Johnson.

  • i’d say 15 minutes off the block, increase minutes on weekly basis. by mid season, he can swap places with Roy. NEVER know. gotta give this kid the shot he deserves.

  • If nothing else I hope that when the Lakers sign and trade Jeremy Lin to the Mavs they get rookie SF Justin Anderson because he’s a beast!

  • hey forget about the last two years. just think about this: 45 years and no conference final. i don’t think any other team in any other sport has a worse record. can u think of any?

  • Merely a pipe dream but I would love to sign Larry Sanders… Playing in Drew League but I doubt Lakers take the risk… If only this was Jerry Jones’ team lol

  • I think we’ll get a good glimpse of what to expect on Friday. If UPshaw immediately UPS his game to the next level and makes an immediate impact in summer league, I’m sure BScott will take notice. Upshaw also has to outplay Hibbert in practice once the season starts. I will be UPset if Byron doesn’t give him the opportunity.

  • think blocking a few of KAT and Okafor’s shots would go a LONG WAY in securing a contract and serious minutes.

  • Hibberts only 28, he’s IN his prime, you can’t have too many rim protectors, it’s to our advantage, each player can play with aggressive mindset knowing if they get in foul trouble, there’s another shot blocker coming in.

  • Roy’s game has dipped drastically since 2013 playoffs. perhaps a change of scenery will help.

  • 40 is the number of times you have tried to have a winning season but failed, and participated in the Lottery, no other team has even come close.

  • brah that’d be his ceiling. think for now, he should aim for Gobert or Ben Wallace. Mutumbo’s a HOF.

  • Assuming the salary cap jumps up by $2 million and assuming we trade Nick Young with Ryan Kelly and Robert Sacre to the Cavs for Brendan Haywood. Then we waive Haywood saving roughly $7.5 million in cap space. I would assume the Lakers would then throw a $7.5 million per year offer for 4 years at K.J. McDaniels so 4 years for $30 million in total. I am assuming the Rockets won’t match that offer nor can they without going into a unloading of contracts. That’s a steal for the Lakers assuming they pull it off.

  • The Lakers are going to need a backup rim protector because Roy Hibbert can only play about 28 minutes per game. Tarik Black is nice but a rim protector more of a rebounder and energy guy. Sacre is worthless. Upshaw is a rookie and we have not officially signed him and he has off the court drug issues. Larry Sanders would be the perfect backup center for Roy Hibbert, Sanders is a rim protector. I would pay him the veteran minimum and give him a chance to make the team as the backup center. I am sure the Lakers are interested they know what he did as a center.

  • What happened to the Lin talks, I would love to sign and trade him for Justin Anderson.

  • Would his agent Rich Paul let him sign for the veteran? He is nowhere near the rim protector Larry Sanders is but he can develop into a Better player.

  • IDK if they would go for a vet min, but i’d like a Seraphin & Black/Bass frontline for the 2nd unit.

  • Assuming Sanders is too much of a risk to sign, then my advice is to the Lakers FO is to sign Serphin fast he is about the best center left in free agency. He is a nice backup big man. JaVale is another decent center but a immature guy. JaVale is a rim protector also.

  • What good is a 2nd round pick?
    What good is a later 1st round pick?

    Draft picks are overrated.

  • This would be a great trade for Mitch Kupchak, this is a salary dump needed. Bad contracts unloaded makes sense for us in free agency.

  • How exactly do you make space with the Haywood trade?

    The team would have to trade OUT $7M in salary just to get the incoming $10M. And depending on where they sit, the $3M in savings might not be available.

    Why not just trade Kelly, Sacre and Young for basically nothing?
    Sounds like a lot of work to make $3M.

  • Okafor might be a Multiple-Time All Star — I agree…
    But Russell might be a superstar.

    The difference between the two is the ceiling, where mitch said Russell’s is “unlimited.”

  • If Hibbert can regain his swag…..
    He’s a 15ppg/12rpg guy.

    He was dominant until the Pacers wanted to change their scheme and basically ass him out.

  • The stats say –
    Young is an upgrade to JR Smith.
    Sacre is better than Perkins,
    and Kelly is a stretch they don’t have when Love is out.

    Trading all 3 actually improves the Cavaliers and saves them $.

    — We’ll see.

  • It’s 2 summer games.
    And based how he played at the end of the season, he’s a lock for training camp and a good candidate for a stash and develop guy.

    I’m not sure he’s got superstar genetics, but he does have a scorer’s mentality and moxy. To me, he’s exactly the kind of guy you keep in the system so that when he’s 27, he’s a 6th man of the year and an invaluable piece.

  • 2020 Draft?
    I’m not sure Mitch is keeping the 1st pick in the 2020 draft.

    I’m pretty sure Randle and a ton of 1st’s will be given up to OKC for Durant next year.

  • They would be trading them for nothing. They’ll waive Haywood and then all of that cap space would be free. They might need a bit of that space to sign Bass and Williams, but they should still have about 5-6 million available for another free agent.

  • The Pacer’s scheme is exactly what killed Hibbert—not only his active place in the plays and rotation, but more importantly, killed his confidence.

    Scott has a more old-school style that favors a Hibbert-esque player.

    The real question is whether Scott’s old-school style is still effective in the current NBA.

  • Is it possible for the Lakers to keep Jordan Hill instead of trading for Heywood? He is better than Heywood. We don’t want two castoffs (Hibbert is one) that their teams don’t want. We don’t want to be a dumping ground.

  • Fuck the cavs dont help give them depth we dont even need the space like that

  • We dont help the cavs……..

    JC,Dlo
    Bryant,lou,jbrown
    Randle,swagP,abrown
    Bass,tarik,nance jr
    Hibbert, upshaw

    There you go our 13man lineup, we will trade kelly and sacre for hibbert and future 2nd rd pick(asset)

  • Sacre was their fall back before getting Mosgow. Now he can be a back up. Kelly and Young give Lebron two shooters who can space the floor. It’s actually a favorable depth package for the Cavs bench vs Joe Johnson or Crawford.

  • we are done recruiting centers. Hibert, Black and Upshaw are our guys. Then if there is a big injury plague we might call up someone for ten days contract.

  • stop with the “byron scott has a ore old-school style” next year we will run A LOT.

  • too expensive. if cavs are looking to strenghten their bench they will go and make a deal with us.
    but hey things are not simple like that and maybe we are raising a cavs interest to force another team to trade. like “look a lot of teams are interested in our guys, they have value you deal with us or we deal with them”.

  • It’s the same old s_ _ t, we can’t for reasons due to the gross incompetence of Jerry.Buss and Kupchak attract any players of substance. How long are we going to accept this nonsense. If it weren’t for this being Kobe’s last year, I wouldn’t give this team the sweat off of my testicles.
    Fed Up!

  • Utah is a very peculiar team. On Defense Gobert is a true monster and he’s holding his territory despite looking so frail. Hibbert is not DeMarcus Cousins or DeAndre Jordan, he will not dominate the paint in offense.
    But the reverse is also true, Gobert is catching the rebounds and slamming hard from far away with his tentacles, but he spends a lot of time outside the paint like Noah, with no jumper and no 3 pointers, so he’s not a true offensive threat and Hibbert and Bass can handle Derrick Favors alone in the paint.

    No, the issue with the Jazz in offense is Gordon Hayward (and potentially Rodney Hood) and that’s where they will definitely kill us this year. It all depends on how fast our wingers develop in terms of defense, but they have a lot of experience to chase after. I’m willing to bet Nance can help a lot on that aspect, but I know nothing about Randle’s defense. And if Kobe has to defend on Hayward, yerk…

  • If Mitch can pull this off, he is a god. Getting rid of Nick Young without giving up a draft pick seemed impossible!

  • Actually we do need the space. If we want to be able to sign and trade Lin or Hill.

  • You are the definition of pathetic I’ve never seen anything like you on the internet is your life really that pathetic that you have to troll early in the morning? You go to sleep trolling and you wake up trolling you are one pathetic human being

  • Too late you idiot not “to late” lol see what happens when you troll instead of going to school

  • I say trade nick Young to the Golden State Warriors for Harrison Barnes

  • they were still called the Clippers. They were in Buffalo (as Braves) between 70 and 78. San Diego only for six years.

  • kobe can’t defend anymore. that’s why he can’t play the 3. Jazz is a key match-up this year. We usually play them 3 or 4 times.

  • lol you are back? you trolled all day yesterday, most of the night too. wow. lol.

  • they ought to just give you the “Master Troller: Basketball @ Internet” award right away. you are so dedicated to trolling. day and night. great stuff.

  • I wish some hacker would tell me where to find this dude I would disappear him from this site and this world, put that mofo out of his misery.

  • lol if you are really that determined, it’s not too tough to pull off. but the thing is, why let some troll on the internet get to your nerves. this kid needs psychiatric help. i hope he gets better. instead of hating, we should feel sorry for him.
