    The plan is to play Davis more at the 5, and James more at the 4. No shooting issues with that lineup but it makes Davis even more injury prone imo.

    Westbrook is a human turnover machine.
    He's the only player in NBA history to average over four turnovers a game.
    And now he's paired with LeBron who holds the record for most turnovers in a career.

    Lakers now have the number one and number two players (active) regarding turnovers.

    This is a recipe for disaster.

    I think it actually makes them better. The issue they had last year is other than lebron and Davis there wasnít a single player that could get his own shot off the dribble. Schroeder could sometimes but when he went inside he got blocked. Westbrook struggles with his jumper but heís very good at getting to the basket. I think itís going to create opportunities for James and Davis.
    They still will need a few random outside shooters but I think this was a good move for them and they really gave up nothing that is going to matter in this league

    They need him to play when LeBron and Davis are hurt. Regular season it will help them. Playoffs of course not. Can't wait to fade these morons . LeBron is washed up. Yes he can still get 20 points but who cares. He is destroying try future to try and get a last ring. The Lakers are garbage for the next decade.

    Lakers should've nabbed Davis Bertrans while they were at it.

    Good trade for Lakers. Westbrook is tough. Also a playmaker.

    Lakers fine with Schroder last season. He was exactly what they needed; his scoring in a pinch, his tenacious defense. Then they get a few significant injuries and inevitably crash and everyone says it didn't work.

    Not sure if this trade will make the Lakers any better?

    Giving up KCP in the deal hurts the Lakers on the perimeter. That was a really good shooter and competitor they just lost in the trade. Kuzma was garbage last year so who cares with him..

    If all three are reasonably healthy, they win the title.

    They'll pick up a bunch of shooters on min deals. Everyone knows it. They'll get even better in March when the entitled washouts are demanding a buyout so they can jump on the championship wagon. Stupid league

    If people think Davis and James are the "best of friends" you have another thing coming. At first they enjoyed playing together... it's not fun anymore. Davis shows this more than anyone. You're going to have a meltdown of some sort...

    If the Lakers get knocked out of the playoffs again... this will be the last year Davis and James will be teammates.

    Davis will demand a trade....

    Davis is the passive aggressive pu$$y

    James is the obnoxious pu$$y

    Expected LA to wrangle a deal for CP3 somehow after he got so close and he'd go for a ring with a team so heavily lacking at PG.

    Not sure why this deal is getting such a hard time though? Lakers problem is they had no one that could create a shot or even a play outside of LeBron and AD who have never been elite at creating for other players. Now they have a guy that's arguably the best in the business at creating? Call him a stat padder all you want but at the end of the day he's going into the HOF and deservedly so.

    It's always going to be a hard task trying to beat that stack they have in Brooklyn but this team will give them all sorts if they stay fit and get out of the West. Lakers played great D last season and not like any of the guys that left had a huge deal to do with that. Like Harrel but he just didn't fit I guess as had a very average season, excellent at the Clippers though so will be a great pick up. KCP a nice NBA SG and probably needed but you've gotta pay a price, Wash have better 3pt shooters to be fair anyway. Kuzma had his chances and we wouldn't really even know him if he didn't play for the Lakers, easy piece to trade as he is overvalued.

    I love to hate the Lakers too so hope they get beat! But think this team looks very good, turnss a lot of James' turnovers into points, AD is money from anywhere left open so who needs 3s when you can defend as well?

    Davis played like that at the Pels though to be fair, it's his game I guess. Still an elite big in the league and with Drummond he can do that. Is Drummond still on the books? Assume so if they got rid of Harell.

    Washington got great players that can shine there. And a 1st rounder. Lakers 3 old superstars will NOT stay healthy all year thats what will kill them. Also, not much $$$ left to go after pretty much anyone, bunch of veterans have to take minimums or lower contracts good luck with that. But I am glad he will take some pressure of these young buck guards tiring the shit out of an aging LJ. Lakers just cant keep up with the guards of the league. Westbrooks motor is high, but Lakers sorely lacking a center and a shooter, still. They will not win the west. I have LAC+ Utah still better...Phx was a 1 year wonder they will not make the finals again.

    If Davis and Lebron can stay healthy for next season that will be a miracle.
