Analysis | 76ers are trading up for Markelle Fultz, and Celtics are taking giant leap of faith

Clearly The NBA Habit is changing with time. It used to be , the last thing you want to do make a team in your conference great to challenge your team. By boston giving Fultz to Philadelphia clearly they are making that team  much better to challenge them in the east.  I will be surprised if next year the Lakers tank   to try to get to the same spot as the last two years as it will not do them any good. so this time around they have no choice but try to do better if not make the playoff. How many numbers one players do a team needs to become great unless you want to use all those number one choices to get a great player. Jimmy battle although a good player I do not know if LeBron stays in the east will help them past them because you know LeBron will try to improve that team next year. now if LeBron decide to leave as all speculation has been running hot boston will become the goat in the east regardless. by making Philadelphia   great  any thing can happened. Can you Imagine Hambiid, Fultz, Simmons    and so and so in the same team next year. we are talking about 3 number ones with tallent trying to match their assets  and who is helping them , the team they may challenge in the east. Danny Ainge may just pray god that Philadelphia doesn’t become better than Boston the few years to come. That will be something for the boston fans to digest and I do not think it will seat well if that is the case . On top of it there is no Guarantee the Lakers will not jump on Jackson since they seem to be intrigued by him too although I think they will not pass on ball.  Continue to read

Lakers Nation. Winners And Losers From The NBA Draft Lottery. The Lakers got What They Wanted Regardless of weather Magic Johnson Knew In Advance That The Lakers Already Got The Pick so I guess The Gods are On The Lakers Side if One do Beleive That The League is in Fact Not A Rig. Right?

Well Just think about This Ramona Sherborn of The Lakers Predict that the Clippers will win In Utah game 6 And loose game 7 at Home  and the prediction look so perfect Ireland a Lakers reporter couldn’t believe it but yet it happened exactly the way it was predicted. Now The Lakers beloved Coach Luke Walton goes On National Tv and said Magic Already guarantee him The pick and the story look so good that the Lakers not only got the pick but move to number 2 in position to get exactly what has been being discussed on the media. Too good to be true Right. The league is not a rig. So say The Media reporters who are supposed to not criticize the league on the wrong way knowing their pay checks are the reason why the league exist. We are living in  A perfect world . This Is America. God Has given us all we want to look so perfect at all time. A Country that went from a Country that didnt exist 185 years ago to the most powerful country on earth.

We are the one who is Protecting The god’s land in Israel from being run over  In the Middle east so we deserve it. LeBron James down 1 to 3 in the finals last year and loosing badly the league find an excuse to suspend one of the warriors best player suddenly LeBron team became relevant again The world over let just give him the title of the best player ever. do not guess me wrong the man is a talented guy but put on a position they are forcing the world to accept he is perfect without flows and the world questioning every easy way he found to get there when Michael Jordan , the Kobe of the world didnt . It came to them naturally thru the course of their career not pick and choose not being helped by the league. Those who believe the league is perfect as if the world if perfect by itself will tend to dismiss the truth. may be the media need to ask The spurs how they feel loosing their best player the same way the Warriors felt when Green Was suspended last Year by the league during the final. Yes this is just an observation from my own seeing like it or not. but on a lot people minds out there they know I speak the truth with out reservation. So Continue to read The rest and enjoy it while you can Lakers Fans. No more heart burns at least from the draft next year. this was the end of pick number 3 or loose it. The Competition with Boston is coming and coming soon, isn’t that what the league wants? old revelry that will make the league relevant again to the roof .

The 2017 NBA Draft is incredibly deep, with all 30 first-round picks likely to produce for their teams sooner than later — and the Boston Celtics get their pick of the whole batch.The Celtics cashed in on the 2013 trade that sent Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn in exchange for the right to swap 2017 first-rounders with the Nets. Brooklyn, which finished the 2016-17 season with the worst record in the NBA, technically won the lottery, only to watch the pick go to Boston.Oh, and good news if you're a Lakers fan: Los Angeles beat the odds to keep its 2017 first-round pick, which ended up No. 2 overall.Now that the draft order is set, here's our first-round mock for the 2017 NBA Draft.

Lakers Nation: The Lakers Themselve, The referees And The Timberwolves at one point or The other affected the Game. The Lakers Eventually Went Down By 25 Points and Never Recover from it Despite the Fact They cut It Under 10 Points

I Think it is about time the Lakers start Playing the all games instead of going down by a big margine and trying to become Eros by coming back and winning games. that is not a recipe of success. In this young season They have already lost 2 winnable Games with Mentality of thinking like that. They just do not play hard the first 2 quarters as they should giving opponents more than 30 points the first quarter in particular.  Luo Deng looks more like a 37 years old world peace Than a 31 years old  Nick Young. I have not seen such a good players at 31 years old unable to score a basket games after games after games. I think the Lakers got cheated out of this country. Luo Deng doesn’t appeared to be 31 years old to me. Our African Brothers are known about rectifying their age.   At this pace I hardly see him staying 4 years with the Lakers unless things changes and soon. I usually do not  criticized referee . On this one I do not have a choice. if you are going to call touch falls you have to call it on both side. The 25 points deficit came with the referee help I shall say Luke Walton was so frustrated he had to say something. well some days it goes your ways others it doesn’t. It was just one of those days. The Lakers aided the slide by not playing hard on a back to back game on the road , you simply cannot afford to do that. Every times opponents Player do not play , they comme lazy and relax. That got to change.
