    PLEASE LAKERS, DRAFT VONLEH OR SMART

  • jeremy

    hoping for the best. lakers need a big or a guard. they really need any spot other then SG since they still have kobe

  • jeremy

    the cavs team Canada

  • TheTruthKills

    Lol Embiid didn’t want to go to Philly. He looked legit mad.

  • 3339

    Embiid looked fake happy about going to Philly, guarantee he wanted LA lol

  • jeremy

    hoop rumors have gordon to the magic did the pick come in

  • kookiebuger

    The Lakers can end up with Exum or Smart now it just depends on who the Jazz and Celtics pick.

    • jeremy

      hoop rumors say jazz take exum

    • TheTruthKills

      Exum is going to Utah

      • kookiebuger

        CRAP!!!!!!!!

  • JohnSmith00

    I don’t give a fuck about Embiid I knew he wouldn’t fall that much, but EXUM man!, EXUM!!!!! that came out of left field. Now he’ll either go to Utah or Boston, this is fucking bullshit man, once again last years need to win comes and bites in the ass. At this point I can only hope he’s passed up and falls to the Lakers.

  • jeremy

    lakers either get smart or surprise us and take lavine

  • JohnSmith00

    So many talented kids are going to have their youth wasted, in 5-10 years most of them will likely be on other teams, the lottery and draft is a joke. Well at least now we’ve got some solid choices in Vonleh, Randle or Smart.

  • TheTruthKills

    Smart is going to Boston.

  • jeremy

    smart to boston say hoop rumors

  • JohnSmith00

    Lakers better select Randle or I will go nuts.

    • kookiebuger

      They better not or I will go crazy.

      • jeremy

        it be funny if they pick lavine

      • JohnSmith00

        It should be between Randle and Vonleh and Vonleh just doesn’t have enough upside.

        • kookiebuger

          Well Randle is an undersized PF, who plays under the rim, can only
          finish with one hand (left), can’t spread the floor, can’t play defense,
          mainly used pump fakes and spin moves, and played a lot of bully ball
          against weaker defenders. He fell from a guaranteed top 3 pick to a top
          10 pick for a reason. I’ll take my chances with Vonleh or try to trade it for Emiid or Exum some way somehow.

          • JohnSmith00

            No stats bro no point in stats, at this point it’s taking best talent available.

          • TheTruthKills

            Basically a bust in waiting. Great smh.

          • kookiebuger

            He might be hurt as well.

          • JohnSmith00

            The kid will be an all-star, take a screenshot of my comment and if he’s not an all-star in two to three years. Feel free to call me out on it.

            Also, who else would you take?, there wasn’t anything else of value left.

          • kookiebuger

            He’s no allstar he will be above average at best.

          • JohnSmith00

            You have your opinion and I have mine, only time will tell now.

          • kookiebuger

            Honestly do you think he will be better then Blake, Lamarcus Aldridge, Kevin Love, Anthony Davis, and Ibaka? They are all potential allstar PF in the West.

          • DKWTTY

            Well Lakers fans can outvote all those other fanbases lol. Look at Dwight after he left. Got no votes!

          • JohnSmith00

            We can’t begin to assume what a player will be like in the future, do you think most knew Kobe would be one of two greatest players to play the game?, the Hornets sure as hell didn’t. I believe this kid has enough talent to find himself in that position, so to reiterate only time will tell.

    • A Fan

      Since Smart, Exum, Embiid, and Gordon were all taken, I don’t mind this selection.

  • TheTruthKills

    I was never sold on Randle, but it can’t be helped now.

  • DKWTTY

    Lakers better pick Randle.

  • jeremy

    trade to sixers pick so late

  • jeremy

    no it randle

  • kookiebuger

    CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • jeremy

    so lakers get a back to the basket player

  • sena

    wtf? i wanted marcus smart.f..k celtics. if only we had taken smart

  • JohnSmith00

    Fuck Bill Simmons, “I hate the Lakers” what kind of bullshit is that, he needs to be fired to being a little bitch.

    • jeremy

      yea i thought they couldnt say things like that

    • DKWTTY

      Totally unprofessional to have someone so unabashedly biased working for ESPN like that. Last season when he was commentating one of our games was even worse. ESPN crew sucks. I wish the guys at TNT got to do this.

  • jeremy

    now the hornets have two young PFS to fight for the starting spot

  • DKWTTY

    Why would the Celtics take Marcus Smart?

    • jeremy

      either for a trade or to have someone who can handle the ball incase rondo get hurt again

      • DKWTTY

        Somebody better tell Rondo he’s gonna be pissed lol. They can trade him to us for Pau then.

        • jeremy

          Boston need a big man more so it surprise me too

          • DKWTTY

            Smart has a temper too and we all know Rondo is another Kobe who don’t play that shit lol. This should be interesting.

          • jeremy

            well they might finally have a SG if they start him.

  • jeremy

    sixers a PG what the heck?

    • kookiebuger

      Maybe they will offer Emiid and Payton for Randle?

      • jeremy

        ill be happy if that happen

        • kookiebuger

          It would make a lot of sense for both sides the Lakers need help defensively and need to get younger Emiid and Payton will fill that void while the 6ers drafted 2 players at a position that they are already solid at and will need some interior scoring Randle can fill that void while getting another pick by trading Young.

          • jeremy

            or they can move MCW to SG and young to sf

          • kookiebuger

            I’m not sure about that, the 6ers will have spacing issues Payton and MCW can’t knock down the jumper consistently and Noel and Emiid can’t really spread the floor either.

          • jeremy

            well they said noel might be a back up not a starter

          • kookiebuger

            Payton was traded to the Magic it’s to late now.

          • jeremy

            for a guy that wont pay for 2 years

      • ZK

        I think the Lakers need to go after undrafted Center Sim Buhlar from New Mexico State Aggies. He needs grooming but the lakers need another big man. This guy is big 7’5″ 360 pounds

  • JohnSmith00

    “The teams that passed on me will regret it.” –@Julius Randle

    With the foot injury, all the negative talk about him as well as the fact that last year this kid would have easily gone #1 overall. It’s going to make him play with a chip on his shoulder and prove to everyone that he’s not mediocre or a bust.

  • jeremy

    lavin gone love will love him if he stays

  • jeremy

    bulls got a nice SF and nugget get 2 first
