    *ideal situation* doesn’t mean it’s gonna happen. The two main deals is butler and Jordan everything after as I said is just whatever. That’s why I say “hopefully”. Trust me my expectations are in check.

    I said this many times, butler wants money and his agent doesn’t want risk to lose money.

    If butler is injured like Durant, ——

    You would take a 4 time all star, 4 time All defense and 2 time All NBA player over a guy that barely made our rotation last year and another guy that spent half the year in the G league? Bold statement

    There is NO perfect fit with Harden's ball dominant, ISO, little defense style of play until proven. I am not falling for that crap.

    CF said Howard was the perfect fit, then Ryan Anderson the perfect fit, then CP3 and Capela the perfect fit, heck even Marcus Thornton was the perfect fit at some point

    maybe but definitely not good here. as with the cp3 fa documentary, we saw how wrong the media was about him from the beginning. maybe they could be wrong with JB as well. we shall see.

    I think Chris Paul was opted out for like a month before he was opted in and traded to us.

    We aren't getting Butler. Sign J. Randle and explore trade opportunities. If none are out there you run it back as is with Randle at the 4 and Tucker at the 3.

    No other star player would want to be second fiddle to Harden .... and most of the time stand still at the 3 point line waiting for the ball while watching hero ball...once in a while they'll receive a pass ...but when the shot clock is about to expire.

    Lol, we’re talking about morey here. Obviously we’d have to lose players and he’d have to take a pay cut if that were the case. Obviously the scenario is very unlikely.

    Chance is one of Lakers stars injured.
    Paul has to be healthy conference finals.

    It’s too sad. Morey won’t allow Randle to do what he’s best at and that is his post game. He’ll force Randle to play PNR which he won’t succeed at

    We need to change our philosophy if we did acquire him!
