  • Its that "tuff luv" that leads to title after title .... Notice clippers fans don't do that. They don't win either!

  • danny green shot terribly for being danny green yes, but what casuals dont realize is that the level of defense he was playing was nba all defense level.

  • This broad Nichols is obsessed with a couple of kids talking trash on social media. This broad asked the same stupid question during the trophy ceremony to Lebron. So trashy...

  • Lakers is an elite franchise, the most successful in winning %, KCP is welcomed to stay, love to have him back.

  • Much respect to KCP! IMO he was the key "other" on the team.

  • Whoever ended up winning the finals (it was an obvious fix for the lakers), they weren't going to get the full respect because of the situation. This year's NBA champs don't matter.. every champ in sports this year, they dont matter... football, its paid off for Brady and Tampa bay bucs.. baseball, I dont pay any attention to but the Dodgers are gonna choke. Aye credit to lebron man, the dude just knows how to play the game and I'm not talking basketball. The patience of this man has and how hes able to see things unfold in the near future. He knows how to use his influence and knows the art of keeping his mouth shut.. if you know what I mean, you know what i mean. 4-10 in the finals, not a lot of people can say that.

Basically all of the players we lose can only go to a trash team but paid higher. If they leave they won't be contending minus Dwight in Golden State.
