The Lakers should move on:

Ham needs to go- he knows nothing about coaching

I gave DLo a chance but he ultimately failed. No heart, no desire from that kid. He just play to play.

Hachimura & Reaves are so so role players. One needs to go, or both if they can get better fits.

There are 2 directions, one is to try and compete one more time with Bron and AD or make a complete shake up. Trade AD for assets if they want a rebuild. If they want to keep, go back to what makes them a winner in 2020. Defense, big line up.

If the Lakers beat the Pelicans in the play-in, they will be crushed by the Nuggets in 1st round. If they lose, will get smashed by Kings or Warriors in play-in round 2. πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

Jaxson Hayes to Lakers. Probably good for him to get a new start.

Currently

Pg Vincent/Pippen Jr
Sg Reddish/Christie
Sf James/Prince
Pf Hachimura/Vanderbilt
Ce Davis/Swider

Vincent is an interseting pick up especially that price. But here we go again Lakers retooling with these 1yr deals πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ And keeping the team small.

AR and Dlo might be returning but c'mon give AD some help down low πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

Rob Pelinka will come up with someone. The Lakers can still bring back Mo Bamba at a lower price or Mason Plumlee . Limited amount of centers on the market to begin with.

LeBron keeps proving all he cares about is his stats. The fact he played in the all-star game while sitting out actual games. The Lakers needed him to relax and heal up. Signing him was a huge mistake.

The 5 biggest mistakes the Lakers made in the last 10 years.
5. Draft Ball over Tatum.
4. Trade for Westbrook
3. Trade for Davis. Could of signed him a year later.
2. Sign Lebron. Single handedly ruined the Lakers.
1. Buss leaving. He was building a good team just needed to let them mature. Team would be a lot better with the young guys back.

Ball, Caruso
DLO, Clarkson
Kuzma
Randle, Nance, Wagner
Zubac, Bryant
And with the draft picks we missed.

You said a lot here. Just to point out first if the Lakers didn't make the trade which sent DLO out the pick for Kuzma wouldn't have come in. Also you forgot Ingram and Hart. So now lets look at that team with Ingram and Hart. First off the Lakers would be paying more for that team then the team they have now. Factoring in the draft picks they traded like #4 and #8 in recent years apart of the Davis trade. Next there wouldn't have been a championship in 2020. That's not happening. This overall is not a championship roster nor a playoff roster. So roster movement would have happened no matter what. I would say DLO, Randle, Clarkson, Nance and Wagner wouldn't have been apart of the team at this point. Ball and DLO wouldn't have made much sense together. I do agree Tatum should've been picked over Ball if they kept DLO. Now lets talk #3. Lakers would NOT have had Davis the next year. He would have been traded to Boston. A package was on the table but the Lakers package was better and the Celtics reluctance of trading Tatum. #2 Lebron James is a superstar talent. The issue is Davis has been injured and Westbrook trade didn't make sense. This year the Lakers could've won 10 more games if they just made 1 or 2 plays more and didn't give up big leads.

Here are a few mistakes I think they made.

*Trading Zubac away for Mike Muscala.
*Trading for Westbrook.
*NOT Trading for Buddy Hield from the Kings in exchange for Kuzma and Harrell.
*Select Ball over Tatum. However Davis wouldn't be apart of the team due to financial reasons if Tatum wasn't apart of the trade which Ingram was apart of anyway. Ingram, Tatum, Randle together? Not sure if that would work out. Randle would've had to be traded.
*Renouncing Julius Randle and getting nothing in return.

So after all this the Lakers would probably be in the exact same position and one less championship. With Lebron, Davis, and Westbrook Lakers fans would expect better. It's just an underachieving roster. Could shooters help? Yes but it cost salary cap which the Lakers don't have due to the contract of Westbrook.

Randle asked to leave because of LeBron. If he wasn’t here he would of stayed. I disagree they would be in a way better position with DLO, Ball, Ingram, Randle and Zubac. Not to mention they would have all those picks to up grade the roster. So trade a couple a get a real star. Davis and LeBron are great players but when is the last time they did not miss 1/ 4 of the season? So one championship and only because they had months off between. Is worth be more competitive for the last 4-5 years? The season before they traded for Davis they were 3rd or 4th before LeBron went down. Plan and simply they had depth with now they do not. The Westbrook trade was a total flop and that was LeBron and Davis wanting him. My reasoning behind keeping the youth is you could of traded for other stars that are not as old or injury prone. Media keeps saying how durable James is when he has missed 1/ 4 of the games every year except the season he had months off during it. To much money into guys that can’t play a full season.

I think we can both agree that Randle would've stayed if Lebron wasn't around and that the Westbrook trade wasn't a good idea. I wouldn't say it was a total flop but a $47M point guard off the bench is not what the Lakers really need. That will be corrected in the offseason. The only stars I could think of that would join the Lakers without Lebron and AD would be Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. Those guys are not leading the Lakers to a championship either. Lakers made an huge investment in both Lebron and AD. All we can do is hope that the team will start winning games and get back into the playoff picture. AD returning is a start. Lebron is 38 years old so I don't expect him to play 75+ games a year. More like 60 games. That's just the way it is. To me that's not a big deal as long as they are winning without him which they are not. The idea that Westbrook would be the savior when Lebron is out didn't make a different.

The fact is the lakers should never have traded their whole team and future for one player no team is gonna help lakers every deal since has been a desperation move from purging salary to a wtf were you thinking westbrook trade. Ok sign him he were bought out but to trade your entire bench of roll players made absolutly no sense with that salary . Pelinka is not a real GM they dont need a third star. Just some young reliable shooters and a thug center so AD. Can play without being punished in the paint. The jazz were gonna help. Not now the pacers are sticking to their guns the hornets well there was a reason they wanted hayward in the trade AD is only thing they have of value but the rest of league will never pay what the lakers did

Lakers have no need for a racist, misinformed, egoist gauard from Brooklyn. The Lakers will loose all manner of fans and credibility if they trade or sign for the malcontent that shall not be named!
Let's hear from Kareem, he's the intelligent moral pluse we should all listen too in the NBA

You can probably take it one step further which is no team will be interested. I think he may retire after this season.
