    I mean with Davis they probably will and not just that, it no longer needs to be the top star.

    Folks forget Lebron is old. Not sure why Davis wanted to be paired with old man bron

    Lakers have room to sign a max player.

    With this trade, you bet players will want to come.

    If they add another star or make a bunch of solid moves, maybe they will. But LeBron is older than CP3. It's going to catch up to him soon.

    Still think the Rockets are better as long as we add some shooting and size. No big name additions needed. West is wide open.

    Do they still have enough caproom to sign a max guy?

    They have two legit top 10 players. They can pick up flotsam and jetsam and be pretty damn good. With this much capspace to work with? They are loaded for bear, IMO.

    Well, he's also LeBron James. LeBron and Chris Paul are not the same people. LeBron is arguably the most athletic human being of all time, and spends over $1mil a year on his body alone. He'd still be a hell of a second option in two years and you know it.

    Same here but you know, they will likely get a third star or a pretty good player, they have a max to spend, someone will take that to play in L.A. and have a solid chance to win.

    Great haul for NOP, like seriously; the Lakers clearly wanted to give NOP no option but to take their deal.

    griffin in NO, 4th pick given to LA, kuzma not included -- all the hallmarks of a wholly rigged league

    Lebron is older now and Davis is injury prone. This may not work out like they hope. Imagine Davis getting hurt again and lebron no longer has the role players around him either. I know they will add more players but that would probably cause them to repeat this years disappointment. I guess we will see what happens.
