    The JR Smith, Lance, Waiters types just turn me off big time. racist

    In critical moments, I expect dudes like that to lose the script and take a dumb 3 or turn the ball over.

    Guess I will just have to trust LeBron's judgement as he will be the one to make the call.

    Preferring the guys that present the least amount of drama is understandable. Majority of LAL fans probably feel the same. Safe to say JR and Lance are capable of doing something silly. Also capable of doing some good..LeBron doesn't block Iguodala in that Game 7 if JR's not sprinting back in transition to make Iguodala change his shot. They're a bunch of Joc Pedersons to a degree. Mercurial guys. Can LeBron turn mercury into wine?

    Don't know where all this Waiters stuff is heading, but again - a 2nd meeting is weird and seems like it could just be positive PR spin for a guy that they like. He definitely needs some shine coming out of that situation in Miami. Cook signed a 2 year deal, so the obvious guy to waive would be Daniels. They're also waiting until March 2nd to have this meeting with Waiters, so maybe they're waiting to see if a guy like Moe Harkless gets bought out?

    Of all the rejects out there right now the least reject of them all is Lance imo.
    And Lance has balled hard for Vogel before.
    Plus he is not trying to get into basketball shape.
    He has been playing and can step right in.
    Not the shooter that JR and not the potential that Waiters has.
    But he has more size than Waiters and more playmaking than both of them.
    Plus I feel I could trust him more than the other two.
    Lance is happy go lucky but not in a flakey/space cadet type of way.

    He is always trying hard.
    A little too hard.
    Which is probably his problem.
    He's talented but not as athletically gifted to match his talent and skills.
    While the other two guys are highly athletically gifted and have more refined skills but IMO Lance is more talented overall as an actual basketball player.
    And to me it seems like he cares about the game.
    For instance I am sure Lance would wait till he gets home before he starts taking edibles.
    Or maybe Lance isn't silly and goofy because he smokes week.
    Maybe he's just like that by nature.
    But he I don't think he is a wild and crazy guy like the other two.
    There is a weird kind of self confidence in Lance's game.
    Not in a cocky way though.
    Although he is the most entertaining guy in the league.
    Bring back the air guitar!

    He's played for seven teams in the league since 2010 and only one (Indiana) for more than one year.

    There's a reason. Also a reason he's playing in China and not the league.

    Hard pass on the Air Guitar.

    Imagine if someone like the Orlando Magic had drafted Draymond.

    He'd have been an absolute nobody.

    His comments were funny as hell but Draymond has always annoyed the hell out of me.

    Such big energy for a role player.

    His usual triple single.

    Kerr was pissed too.

    Dray and Harden are easily the top two most annoying players in the NBA, but at least Harden does score.

    Moe Harkless will finish the season with the shitty Knicks. One hurdle cleared for Waiters

    And they were without Jaren Jackson/Brandon Clarke.

    Just a shitty performance by the Lakers.
