    I understand what blazekor said and that that would not happen. I then suggested a pick swap occur in 2029 with the Lakers getting the worst of the 3 picks (probably Boston) as it is likely to be worse than the Lakers’ pick. Getting an unconditional pick in 2030 from the Lakers gives them time to suck worse.

    Yeah I really like this deal. We still basically get the draft equity of two unprotected picks but the Lakers can try to sell it as they only gave up one pick.

    2029 lottery would be crazy as any of BOS/MIL/PDX/LAL win and we get that pick. Dream scenario would be amazing if were a contender around that time and still have 3 chances for the #1 pick.

    Laker podcasters want to trade crummy 2nd rounders for Walker Kessler .... I think they're forgetting, Danny Ainge is a legendary Celtic who battled with Magic's Lakers.

    no deal

    oh geez, now they want all the good players in Utah for Vincent & a pick.

    don't let Laker fans near a microphone. They think every Lakers trade can be Kwame bust Brown for All-Star Pau Gasol

    Bronny shot 0-8 from 3pt land. The mean Lakers fans are out in force. It's extra whiney and screamy on my YouTube algorithm

    Some Laker fan will find a HOF PG who went 0-8 from 3pt land in SL and they all say Bronny is the next whoever that is, lol.

    Laker fans are getting Tom Haberstroh skills by watching Blazer games.

    Bronny might need Scott Foster's help.

    latest Laker fan comp:
    since Michael Jordan came off the bench in high school, then became *one of the best players ever. It means Bronny's bad high school and college years don't mean a dang thing.

    *Laker fan mindset; LeBron, Kobe, Shaq, Magic, Austin Reeves all better then MJ.

    I just looked because I haven't been to Subway in forever and their average footlong is now around $13. Most of the best sandwich shops in Portland average around $13 or $14 a sandwich and while they aren't footlongs I would almost guarantee that they weigh more. No wonder I haven't heard anyone say, "You wanna get lunch at Subway?" in over a decade.
