Its a shot at Laker management to spare no expense in trying to win a Championship. Its a smart move.

AD is again showing his true colors. He's a baby and will leave if LeBron retires or they don't work out right away. I think he's forgotten how his first team kept sheltering him through his fifteen (yes I know exaggerating) different injuries.

There's nothing else for AD to do. Or shooting a movie together with other player(s).

If this situation is true then AD is a lucky man. At the end of one season, AD will want to get the hell away from James!

The only Jersey worth buying is Westbrook. Hes the only player willing to work hard and stay TRU. All these other players looking for the easiest way. Worst NBA in history.

Didn’t Davis say before the trade that he would not sign a new contract with anyone before free agency in 2020?

He knows he’s committing too the lakers , he’s going too toy with other teams next season. Acting like he’s going to sign with them so they don’t get quality free agents
kpobje Month ago
don't let this news story distract you from the fact that Rachel Nichols is 10x better then michelle beadle---she is able to get through a news story without making awkward jokes and laughing like a coked out soccer mom at everything---Rachel is committed, eloquent, even keeled. Give her more airtime.

They really don't have anything to talk about? Lazy journalism. How is this even a story? This isn't even basketball

If this was any other team besides the Lakers, they would be talking them up so hard, talking about this team is stacked and the immediate future is bright but because it’s the Lakers they have all the questions and concerns. Trash.

As long as lebron is there AD staying bruh rich Paul ain’t losing out

Good Players is smart they have leverage by signing one year deals. Davis holds who he plays for in his future it's good business on getting surrounded with good players or he walks to another team who signs players he trust.

AD IS a two way player, Dwight Howard is not. AD can be another Kareem type of Laker, he can be the next Laker 'lifer'. However the way Free Agency is going, players like the opportunity of making their own decisions.
Speaking of squeezing the juice. Rachel Nichols got some big california "ORANGES" that i would definitely squeeze

I think AD will re sign with the Lakers...it is so obvious
Noartist Month ago
meh, play for the Lakers for a year then when it doesnt work out sign with Toronto. Raptors could do the exact same thing with AD as they did with Kawhi. That was no fluke.
Josh Tyson
Josh Tyson Month ago
Espn always trying to stir drama for the lakers. AD is making no promises because you never know what will happen he hasn’t even played a game for LA yet. He doesn’t want to do a kyrie and state he’s staying long term then have everything go to shit and then bail
Richard Kanamaru
Pelicans win!!!
Uria85 Month ago
You know LeBron is talking to AD as a reason not to commit early. This keeps the Lakers in check. As dysfunctional as the front office has been, I don't blame them for doing this. Show us you are willing to provide some stability to where the Lakers seems like a desired location especially for veterans that want a ring that are still good but will accept a vet min contract.

Rachel sounding like Demi Moore
James Ballsworth
Paul George didn't ask to be traded to okc, Kawhi Leonard didn't request Toronto as a destination either. Anthony Davis requested a trade to the Lakers specifically. He's staying.

Rachel sounds annoying. “He doesn’t have to do anything” like shut up with that bs. We understood what he meant by it. Smh.

hahaha AD is a lebron look alike right now in contract extension decision, he will do a 3+1 deal

The pressure on Brian's chair is worrisome
Gregory Richardson
He's going to sign a 2 and 1, so he can opt out after his 10th year and get a super max contract. Also, he's not going to commit to the Lakers long term (and he shouldn't) to keep the organization accountable for putting together winning teams. You can't trust lakers management as presently constructed
Kawahi is secretly working for next year! If the clippers beat them all season???he just might move over!
There for a year then moves over to the Clippers!😅🏴‍☠️🏴‍☠️🏴‍☠️🏴‍☠️
RyRy123ism Month ago
if you use logic; he wants to play with lebron. Lebron has this and next year on contract, last year being PO. AD will definitely sign long term. BET
the black capitalist
i see a disaster in the making for the lakers.

He will do the Kawhi style left Toronto championship team. It's the fault of these owners paying all these players so much money.

Your 2020-2021 Lakers Starting Lineup: Kuzma, Caruso, KCP, McGee, 1st Rd Pick they get for LeBron next Summer.
Honestly Speaking
Lol its go be so funny if AD decides to leave after only a year with the lakers after all the media heads told boston not to do it bc it would only be a year rental. Yes AD wanted to play for the lakers but hes leaving hisself an out bc he knows how the bs around lebron can get crazy 😂😂 man this story is getting funnier and funnier first he doesnt want to play center now hes saying hes there to basically see how this year goes, i think AD will regret forcing his way to the lakers bc he wouldve made enemys with the fans for nothing

Winhorst also said we were not getting ad so I don't think he that pulled in to the AD camp
gorobot Month ago
Why is this worrisome, this is the new NBA. No one commits longterm to anywhere anymore. 1 or 2 year deals is the standard so they can run to where ever the new superteam will be.

if you haven't noticed the ESPN formula yet, it goes like this. Make a stupid, divisive headline that will get people interested/agitated/involved, get a couple of muppets to talk shit about that headline, then sit back and watch the muppet horde discuss/fight/click.

Would have been much better for the Lakers if he committed like Kyrie did last year...
mywordisfinal Month ago
He has to reach free agency to get the max deal with the lakers.
RealMenCry Month ago
Bruh shut up, he is fully focused on the Lakers right now. He’s gonna make his decision on his final year and be a free agent. He’s not gonna commit like Kyrie did and then y’all clown him when he changes his mind. He can’t say he’s thinking about testing FA because you’ll clown him like Durant all year Of course he’ll say “I’m not making any decision now” it’s very likely he’s staying but he’s not gonna say it since the Lakers will get complacent. Now they have to maintain and adjust during the season

Why the fuck is that an issue? Most players commit ahead of time and never stay. Find better topics.

So sad how they treat the black man black man talking they white hoe cuts him off and allows white bastard to talk if that ain't some bull black y'all need to speak up

Trevor Philips Month ago
**plot twist** he opts out after 1 year and re-signs a Supermax with all those picks in New Orleans imagine the planning for that haha. Davis: I wanna stay here but we have no pieces -- no path to the pieces I need for us to win New Orleans: hbu go to LA a year, they give us all their future picks, and then just re-sign here in a year anyhow? Davis: .... :D
Trevor Philips
Trevor Philips Month ago
it's probably because he wants to try sign a 'supermax' (not Supermax) 35% SC contract in 2022. if he extent in 2019-20 or resign in 2020-21 he still stuck at 30% SC. why sign or extent long term now if 2 years (after player option) your eligible for [super] Max (Max with 10yr vet boost from 30 to 35 percent). he can't get a real Supermax obvs so regardless if he extent or sign elsewhere as UFA, he gonna be at 30% SC. he 7yr vet so he needs 3 more years to get a 'supermax' (Max contract with 35% SC hit). he gonna test LA for 1 year. if it's good, prob re-sign for 2 years; if not, sign somewhere else for 2 years. then for 22-23 season he eligible for the 35% SC on any team (no longer just New Orleans) -- same year LBJ contract end in LA so LBJ can retire or sign a hometown discount for 1 more year -- and LA can offer AD a 10 year [super] Max contract at 35% SC -- presuming AD and LB have success and he wants to stay in LA and is the new face of the franchise if it don't work out in LA.... either in 2020 but more likely 2022 -- he can opt to sign anywhere for a huge [super] Max contract

These analysts are so bad. It's LeBron saying to AD to not commit. LeBron signed long term and immediately regretted it. He gave away his power. Now AD is there to put the pressure on the front office because LeBron can't.

He trying to see how much lebron fall off after this season to determine if he wanna commit now and end up being the only super on the team the new few years

Ever since Lebron ousted Windhorst from his circle, he has been reaching on anything related to LBJ.
