If any team wants to stop GS they better pick some of those guys from that team and break them up...LeBron should worried about Clay Thompson,and Livingston...instead of kawai or kyrie or AD....and get pat riley or spolstras!

Jeanie called Pat, told him she wants him & will pay him anything he wants.
Pat asked Jeanie that if he takes the job can he hire his own GM & coach,
Jeanie's responded NO!
Pat said thanks but NO THANKS!

All the speculation means nothing. They’re getting paid to hype shit up that’s not even true. These talkshows are just too opinionated from people can’t even play the sport, from people never played a sport before, from people who were not good at playing the sport before and it’s fucking pathetic

Max has a hard job working with Stephen whether it’s admitted or not. The man hardly gets to finish a point without Stephen jumping back in after he’s talked for the longest.

People Jerry West is 80 f****** years old... why the hell do they keep talking about bringing him back to the Lakers??? To do what
??? sit in the rocking chair??? come on man ... where are all the Jerry West disciples????
Turn the organization over to LeBron James AND his management team... the Man has been in the league 15 years... He knows how to run everything...
I say let LeBron run the team for the next three years... take whoever He suggests and if they don't win in the next 3 years ... it's on Him...

Hes got a good thing going in Miami with a major offseason coming up next year. Why would he go to Lakers to delay a rebuild longer?

why the hell would Riley leave the Heat for the LAL? He has too much stock in the Heat, hell, he might become part owner when he retires from being president. And dont be surprised if he goes after some free agents next year. there are some interesting Free Agents next summer. Hayward, Drummond, AD, DeRozan have player options in 2020. Eric Gordon, Jahil Okafor are UFA. Sabonis, Ingram, Ben Simmons, Hield are RFA. So a lot of options.

LeBron needs to stop passing the ball and drive to the basket like a ball hog. If the lane is clogged up, then shoot a 15-foot jumper. Rondo is one of the best passers in the league. There's no reason for LeBron to play the point forward. All they would need after that, is a big man who grabs rebounds and blocks shots.

Why the fuck would Pat Riley go to Lakers? He is at front office heaven Miami Heat. Heat owner Mickey Arison doesn't care about winning anymore, happy to pay luxury tax, and he is not involved in any team decision. Pat Riley is 74 all he needs to do is cruise control until he retires.

For everybody saying no way this could happen, I read this article a few years ago basically it is an article about leaving Miami to retire in Malibu, when all this talk started happening I thought about it, if Jeanie Buss can make a Godfather type deal to Mr. Riley I think it is possible

Riley going to LA would completely ruin Riley and his twilight years. The Lakers are cursed and bound for disappointment and frustration and criticism for another decade or more...😇
GRABA85 - 29 days ago
Just change the name of the show to 'Fake Take'. Neither Jerry West nor Pat Riley is coming. Lakers will not get a top tier free agent. Lebron is aging and the franchise is dysfunctional for years and also AD will not be traded to LAL.
Tré - 29 days ago
I’m convinced people just make shit up collectively and everyone runs with it
There are some VERY. STUPID. PEOPLE. commenting below. In-Sports PEOPLES WORD MEAN (NOTHING)!!! Just because Pat Riley "said" he's going to stay in Miami, does not mean he's not just saying that as a Negotiating tool, to get MORE MONEY & POWER from the Lakers before he Leaves Miami.

Lakers do need an OG back in the front office. Whether it's Magic, Kareem, Jerry West, Kobe, Phil Jackson etc. Help the morale/culture going forward. Just doesn't feel right without one of them doing SOMETHING.
