Jeanie can’t sell the tram. Each sibling owns a controlling share. Dr. Buss made is so that it’s incredibly difficult to sell the team outside the family.

LaVar will buy the Lakers, they'll get the 1st pick and he'll draft LiAngelo.

Wouldn't you focus replacing Magic first and let them pick who they want or at least they're compatible with the new HC....?

Oh I forgot, LeBron is really in charge.

Jeannie, stop it...

I’m so glad Luke is gone. His execution and player dev are super bad and he refused to hire anyone other than his Arizona friends. Three years with no improvement as a coach.

As of right now Pelinka is in charge and they are likely looking at the people he and Magic talked about.

Griffin is the best available candidate unless they can poach someone like the Logo or Myers (which still seems highly unlikely despite the recent buzz). Those coaching options are pretty uninspiring though.

I don't see any other viable coaching candidates out there unless you get some new blood or poach from another team.

Maybe Dave is the best of the bunch? Or maybe Vogel whom has been out of work for a couple years now.

Celtics and terrible ping pong luck name a better duo. At least the Memphis pick has a solid chance of being top 8 which is great for the Celtics.

I think the Grizzlies pick potentially not conveying this year is much more important than the other tiebreakers. That's really good for Boston and really bad for Memphis. Cavs still the lottery 🐐.

Celtics win-win whether the pick conveys or not. If it conveys they can offer it in a trade for AD. If it doesn't convey they might get a better pick next year.

I would pretty much guarantee they don't want it this year just because of the quality of this draft + the decreasing protections + the logistical nightmare that draft night might present. They presumably wouldn't know whether Kyrie is staying or leaving on draft night and thus whether they are potentially drafting on behalf of NO or for themselves.

Top heavy draft. Celtics don't want any part of the pick this year. They want the Grizzlies to be so bad they get the unprotected 2021. That would be the ideal scenario for the Celtics/NO if they trade the pick. 2021 is the rumored year in which the one and done rule is going to be eliminated. So there is a small chance this pick is going to be crazy good.

Yup. If this pick conveys this year they are going to have 4 firsts which is a problem.

Is there anyone beside Sam Amico reporting the Mark Jackson stuff? Amico is sketchy as fuck.

I'd feel bad for fans getting him as a coach, but holy shit! Not having to listen to Mark Jackson call games?

Mark Jackson Head Coach. Little Van Gundy GM. Do it Jeannie.
Breen and Doris would be the 🐐 announcing crew.
