Podcast: Should the Lakers trade for Kyrie Irving if they miss out on LeBron James? (Idea is trade for Irving and sign George)

Look at these greedy Laker fans lol

I dont remember the last time these teams made a deal. Highly unlikely

But just for fun, who would you want in return for Irving from the Lakers?

LOL. There is literally nothing they could offer us that would convince Ainge to do this.

They have no guards who would start on this team, no wings and no bigs either. Unless DA and Brad want a team made entirely of wings they’re dreaming

let them dream.  Kyrie isn't being shipped out, never mind to the Lakers.  no one on that roster I'd want over who we already have.

So not even for Ingram?

I do like Kuzma and Hart but these pieces wouldnt be enough

My goodness, why do people think the Celts are going to trade Kyrie the summer after the Celts' own trade for Kyrie proved to be a disastrous mistake for the team that traded him?

Not sure how legit Jimmy Stewart from Felger and Mazz is but he claims someone from within fed him the info , the Celts are already gauging Irving worth

I don't get why anybody would feel that Ingram or Kuzma has more than middle of the road trade value.  Those guys both look like borderline starter material to me.

I want you to look closely at the bolded phrase and tell me what you think the answer is.

I don't understand why everyone assumes all of these high profile players want to play for the Lakers. From what I can remember, Shaq was the last elite free agent to sign with them, and that was 22 years ago. To make matters worse, why would these free agents want to get anywhere near Lavar Ball.

As for Kyrie, the Lakers have nothing to offer to a team like Boston, that is trying to win now.

I know, right?  Does it seem as though players have been having a lot of fun playing for the Lakers lately?

agreed.  I have difficulty understanding how either of those 2 players are almost revered as young players in terms of trade value yet Brown and Tatum are looked as having to be combined to bring in the value of either of those Lakers. 

from what I've seen, I wouldn't trade Brown or Tatum for a package of Ingram, Kuzma AND Ball.

I understand why Ingram is viewed in a similar light to Brown in terms of trade value. I personally would laugh at an offer of Ingram for Brown, but I understand why some people consider them in a similar range of value. Tatum is in a league of his own when it comes to trade value. Kuzma and Ball are likely a tier below or further than Brown.

You think Ingram is a borderline starter? 

17 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal, 1 block, 39.0% 3PT%?

Which bench players are producing like that, let alone at 20 years old?

Definitely not for Ingram, or any other pupu platter the Lakers could put together. Kuzma and Ingram could be decent to strong starters on solid teams. But neither would start here.

Ball is garbage
