    He will have a super solid core with Zion, ball, ingraham, Hart. He’ll be able to get a marquee free agent to team up with him for a better chance at a ring.

    They have a bunch of lakers picks that will be super valuable because the lakers will suck with an old lebron leading the team and nobody good will want to join that lakers. Those could be traded for a butler or beal type player.

    If Lonzo becomes the Lonzo he was supposed to be and Zion is what they say he is, they could have a team with 4 all stars on it.

    Maybe AD has been planning this all along :)

    Ha. That would be amazing, but some deranged Lakers fan might actually try to kill him.

    Nah, AD isn't an alpha, and he wouldn't have the balls to do something like that.

    Big men who can’t run the point are not as valuable in today’s game

    Lolwut?

    Zion, Ball, Ingram and Hart are all in their teens or early 20s how exactly is that team supposed to beat superstars in their prime like Clips, Bucks, Sixers and of course Rox?

    You dont even know the status of Zion, Ball and Ingram, Zion is like 40 pounds overweight, Ball is coming off a season ending injury and Ingram has blood clots. Even if AD pulls a fast one and goes back to NO highly doubtful they win anything he is better off starring in Space Jam 2 with Lebron.

    Lol embiid is 25 and Simmons is 23 and they are favored to win the east. Zion, Davis, Ball, Ingraham, plus two more superstars in their prime that they could definitely get with the LA picks along with their 2020 pick and the allure of winning a ring are better or at least as good as any other team in the league. Also, idiot, I said that if Zion plays the way that Zion is projected to play. They’re saying he’s the most talented rookie since lebron. Even if he’s not, they could still easily form a big 3. With trades alone.

    You are the idiot here Sixers are favored because they have Al Horford and Tobias Harris in addition to Embiid and Simmons and even then they're only favored to win the East and not win the championship. Nobody is saying 20s year old Simmons and Embiid are better than Clippers, Lakers or Rockets.

    LA picks can get you 2 superstars? Like Who? Pretty sure if those picks can get you 2 superstars Clippers wouldve trades those picks themselves. What trades alone are you talking about? How about some concrete examples instead of talking outta your ass?

    Zion just had more hype than Lebron, nobody said he will play better than Lebron as a rookie and those projections went to the gutter the moment he showed up massively overweight and injured himself after 10 mins of play.

    C - AD
    PF - Zion
    SF - Ingram
    SG - Jrue Holiday/Reddick
    PG - Ball

    Sign AD after season. Tank this year and get #1 pick again.

    Still have all of LA picks which would hold a ton of value / already under the salary cap / tradable contracts to make a trade for another superstar.

    If the above happened it would be GSW all over again.

    Lol you keep showing yourself as a moron to the forum.

    Clippers have nothing to do with anything I said. The pelicans got 3 lakers picks, as well the right to trade picks with the lakers in the year after lebron leaves.

    Those picks and pick swap were NOT considered very valuable because LA would ostensibly be keeping AD, and NO would ostensibly be rebuilding. If AD goes to NO, the lakers picks would be valuable because Lakers will probably suck at that point with a bunch of money tied into an aging lebron.

    NO would essentially have 2 Lakers first rounders, 1 valuable lakers swap, and their own 3 first rounders to trade for superstars. 6 first rounders are going to get you 2 superstars. If Miami is sucking, they’ll give butler for 3 firsts. If Washington is sucking, they’ll give Beal for 3 firsts.

    Beal, butler, ball, Zion, AD, ingraham plus all the veterans that take pay cuts to join a contender will win it all.

    Diabolical...

    But davis is a beta and has neither the drive nor the will to pull off something of this scope.
