    he will be hailed as the savior, but after a few losing steaks and tough loses, laker fans will be calling for his head. just like their last few coaches

    He was never coming to Houston anyway but I wish they could have still interviewed him. Oh well.

    This time the crowd won't be chanting "Luuuuuuuke". They'll actually be booing.

    After they get the #1 pick, imagine all that passing with Russell and Simmons. Clarkson and Randle are great prospects with Lou Will as 6th man. I'm sure with all that cap space, Luke is going to try and steal away some of the Warriors free agents like Barnes, Bogut, Ezeli, Speights, Livingston, Iggy, Barbosa. Or just get Durant.

    C:Ezeli?
    PF:Simmons/Randle
    SF:Durant/Young
    SG:Russell/Lou
    PG:Clarkson/

    Wait for Westbrook next year in 2017 and then sign Harden in 2018.

    Durant, Westbrook, Harden, Simmons, Russell, Randle, Clarkson in 2018 lol
