    Hey at least Magic hasn’t spent his last 8 years helping the Lakers division rivals become championship contenders and win championships

    Ok but that’s how he is and I doubt he will change. So as long as he is part of the meetings/recruiting process he will let it be known. IMO the pros of him being part of the meetings/recruiting process outweigh the con of his huge ego.

    I understand all I'm saying is that in this case based on the reports and the timeline of events he didn't really ruin anything for the Lakers and if anything probably helped that he talked to Kawhi. But at the end of the day, the Lakers were Kawhi's fallback choice in the case of the Clippers not getting anyone to pair him with. Here's an article on Kawhi recruiting KD. Notice this all was prior to the start of free agency. https://www.cbssports.com/nba/news/kawhi-leonard-tried-to-recruit-kevin-durant-to-clippers-before-start-of-free-agency-per-report/

    Well he obviously would rather be the main star on the Clippers than join and be a 3rd wheel on the Lakers. Plus he got in contact with KD to team up well before the Magic leak so as I said teaming up with another star was his #1 option way before Magic leaked the meeting

    Yea I don’t buy that. The real reason Kawhi went to the Clippers is because they were able to get another star to go and play with him. That was always his #1 option as evident by him getting in contact with KD to see if he would be down to team up. Had the Clippers not been able to trade for George he would have come to the Lakers no matter what Magic tweeted/leaked or what Kawhi thought about Jeannie or Rob.

    And you rightfully corrected me that he’s not

    Why would that squeeze Kuzma out? IMO AD and Boogie is too much in the paint at once especially with Lebron driving into the paint as well

    It's not even that, the starting lineup would to be traditional, for example Bradley/Green at PG/SG, they will be guarding the other team's PG/SG. On offense, they would act the role of SG's and Lebron will be the PG

    If Lebron really is playing PG, there is no way Boogie starts. Imagine Lebron driving to the basket with AD and Boogie already there.

    No he would just play the pg on offense and fall back to SF/PF on defense

    Whoever is starting at PG/SG

    Sure AD won't be won't be standing out on the perimeter all the time but at least when he does, teams will have to respect his shot and the ability of taking the ball off the dribble. Boogie, not so much, he will either clog the paint or be left wide open behind the arc. AD, Lebron and Kuzma are more than capable to getting the boards and adds another shooter the the offense

    That's what I would think, he obviously isn't going to be guarding PGs/SGs

    What do you mean how it would work defensively? Lebron would play PG on offense and fall back to SF/PF on defense
