Or maybe we potentially could have gotten AD a year earlier and made a run in 2019. Let’s say we drafted Tatum over Ball and kept Randle. Could we have done Randle, Ingram, Zubac, and picks for AD? And then made a run with LeBron, AD, Tatum.


Not going to comment on the possibility of this or that but Tatum next to Lebron and AD would have been a 3 peat somewhere in there.

I get the fascination with Tatum but he would never have been an option for the Lakers in that draft. It made sense to do the Dlo trade for cap space to make up for the Mozg/Deng debacle so a PG was gonna be the choice regardless since it was an area of greatest need and Ball/Fox were PGs projected top 5. I’d take Fox tho!!! He looked better than Ball to me anyway based on their college head-to-head results.

We should probably be thankful Philly took Fultz so he wasn’t available for the Lakers as PG.

Lol. He isn't Kobe. Thinks very highly if himself, but Lakers made the right decision.


Right, giving up a lottery pick for nothing is the right decision. That you Pelinka?


Don't know about that. I'm talking about not building around him or paying him a huge amount of money and signing him long-term.
