    The Los Angeles Lakers have a long history of knowing about and promoting the 'infidelity' sex culture to accommodate its players. 'Magic' and the showtime Lakers comes to mind. This tattle tell little b**** don't fit withing the boundaries of that culture. He's got to be moved.

    A guy that nobody wants to play with regardless of what they say in public is a cancer for any team. I remember it being mentioned over 10 years ago that the Lakers actually have a private social club that accommodates its players with the most exclusive escorts. Former players have mentioned this in documentaries.

    Hmmm maybe the Wolves would be interested with the 5th pick. Russell and Towns are best friends apparently

    Will they take Brewer? He was selected 7th overall, and has a top 5 talent.

    It is true that Minny is fed up with the liability that is Bricky Scrubio. So they might be interested.

    They should trade with the Knicks. We know how Melo feels about snitching.

    lmao Chad Ford is a hack. If Russell was in the draft, he would be competing for the #2 pick right now. Calling BS on this. Lakers aren't going to trade a kid who's shown star potential.
