Default D'Angelo Russell is playing the Lakers

Mark my words



No way in hell he signs back with the Lakers.

There are reports they want d'Lo and D'Lo is "interested". WRONG.


Not to mention they apparently want to offer him a $19 mil deal, which is WAY LESS than he's worth.

He's just using them to up his offer from OTHER teams AND to stick it to the Lakers.


Lakers gonna be once again outplayed and be stuck at the end of the line for Kemba and end up w Vucevic.


D'LO IS NOT SIGNING W THE LAKERS. HE'S PLAYING THEM

Every player wants to go to LA. If the Nets (or whoever else) don't offer him significantly more than the Lakers (and they can't if they are getting KD and Irving) he's going there. Unfortunately the city of LA is a huge built-in advantage to attract free agents plus now they have great players that they lacked when he was there. With everyone that was there when he snitched on Young gone there's no reason not to return if he can't get more money.

D'lo isn't "playing" the Lakers. Him and his agent are floating out the idea of him signing there to increase his value. Same thing Doc Rivers did. Do you really think the Lakers want him? Who is being "played" in this scenario?

Lakers would go after Brogdon as a mid tier free agent before D'lo.

The Lakers definitely DO want D'Lo. He's the perfect fit on a team w Davis and LeBron.. do you not see the comments of Laker fans praising him?


He's playing them

D'Lo is not turning down an extra 7-8 million when a team like Dallas or Knicks will easily offer him.

Sad times to be a Celtics fan.

Biggest splash being discussed for you guys is Julius Randle or trading for Steven Adams.

i think the interest is mutual. but ultimately it will come down to $$$ and other teams will have the better offer.

If LA offers him all that they can it's still a great payday and for as long as James is prime he can play for championships. James may not have much peak left but they should contend for one year at least. Knicks have no clear path to greatness, Dallas may be a good spot but Dallas is being linked to everyone.

Lakers are going for a big name or are getting depth. D'lo is an 43% chucker that the Lakers do not want.

I see comments from Lakers fans calling D'angeslow and snitch... if that's what you mean.

Just stop.

No young player is turning down $7-8 million in their prime. Maybe at the end of their careers but you have no common sense.

You think a young man in the prime of his life would reject the city of LA and somehow I lack "common sense." I suppose, hiven that you're you, you can think that way.

This is not some privileged upper middle class white folk like you who doesn't understand the opportunities to provide for ones family.


Such an ignorant fool.


Name how many young players in their prime turned down $5 million + to go to "LA" or "NY" or some contender.


You can't. Because it doesn't exist.


Fcking moron. No wonder you're from Boston.
