    A shocker today. Paul George resigns with OKC. LaBron just lost one of his chips. Or pawns or rooks or whatever.

    Another chip gone. Chris Paul re-ups with Houston for 4 years, $160 million. Looks like Magic Johnson is going to strike out unless he can get Kwai and LeBron.

    Lebron would have a better team around him in Cleveland in only he goes to LA. Plus, he'd have to play in the West. If championships are the goal, it'd be pointless to go basically alone to LA.

    Lebron signs with the Lakers. Other than the Celtics, is there now any Eastern Conference team that could make the playoffs in the West?

    I bet the people in Cleveland are ticked he has left them again

    Not nearly as much as when he took his talents to South Beach. He retured and brought the Cavs a title and 4 trips to the finals. No matter where he goes he will always be loved and revered in the city who's lake once caught on fire.

    Look for Kwai Leonard to become a Laker. I don't think LeBron would have signed without knowing there was some deal in place. Kudos to Magic Johnson for landing the King. Look for the Queen (Kwai) to be along shortly.

    I still think the Warriors would be much better. Maybe the Rockets too.

    I think it may have been a river but not sure.

    The Spurs will not trade Leonard to the Lakers. I think I saw where it said he may just sit the year out so he can get to UFA status which is dumb imo but whatever. Another year on the legs of LBJ.

    LA probably doesnt make it out of the 2nd round

    I have to agree. Warriors and Rockets will both still be better. I don't see why OKC wasn't better last season but look for them to be a lot better this year.
