    Lol yeah, that’s pretty soft... doubt that would alter his decision.

    I mean, Artest ran up on Kobe and kinda head butted him iirc when he was in Houston and I think the next year he was a Laker lol

    Kanter could've STARTED in LA this season. He chose us instead.

    I don't think he'll go there.

    Reporting that Boston is frontrunner to sign Kemba Walker. They would then have the room exception of $4 million to sign a center. Maybe this is the reported interest they have in Kanter.

    We can offer Kanter the tax MLE $5.7million so I don't see Kanter choosing Boston for less money.

    Maybe we can keep Enes, that would be great!

    I don't think Kanter will go to LA. However, Lance Stephenson was a mortal enemy (lol) of LeBron and then.......

    How was he a mortal enemy? He tried to give him a kiss and whisper sweet nothings in his ear.

    That was fantastic. You could tell by Lebron's reaction that it amused him.

    Going somewhere else for more money isn’t that noteworthy.
