Listen: Lebron James Anthony Davis, Lakers And Rich Paul discussed on The NBA Show
"As much as we make fun of Lakers. They LeBron James Anthony Davis in two summers. Exceptionalism is thick. Yeah. Right now which it hadn't been for several years. But they didn't necessarily like alleviate my concerns about the front office by giving up like your entire future in order to get Davis. We talk about Davis in a bit. And just like how good he is. Because I think that like that's kinda just underrated really is, is this good is really gonna come down to what they could do with these next couple moves. Right. And it is interesting, especially because Davis for most of his career, we've, we've said like that the front office in New Orleans, just failed him. They weren't like the environment that he was thrust into wasn't able to surround him with the necessary talent, while he's entrusting. The second half of his career to rob linka, right? An organization that at this point, I don't think anybody in the NBA has much faith in, so I think if they can go out and maybe just get a Kemba and do the same thing.

I've literally never they've also got some dead cap with dang. And then in their orbit forgot about dang. They've got some dead cap with LOL. And then they've got cap holds on Casey p Rondo Moskalov. Stevenson Bullock, Chandler, McGee, this squad. They all the guys that they were we laughed at them for bringing last year. Yeah. They have all those guys they, but they can get rid of you could write Casey PM pen, right? Like he's not going anywhere. Attends van because you made it to Lincoln joke, and I, honestly like high of admire rich. Paul for orchestrating this mean. I mean he he got exactly what his client. Apparently wanted his clients are both happy. He's happy. You know, if you told me tomorrow, that Rich Paul was divesting himself of clutch and becoming the president of Lakers, I wouldn't I wouldn't blink twice. Really? I don't think he needs to do that. I don't think he does either. But"
