I think it is safe to say that Crowder wants out of Phoenix

What is his problem, issue?  Why does he want out?  He is the starting PF/Swing on a championship contending team, getting good minutes.  Is his issue with the owner and that whole thing?  Seems like that was dealt with and he is selling the team.

No, his issue is that he feels he should be guaranteed a starting role and doesn’t want a younger player passing him.  This is why he got cranky in Boston before he was traded (Tatum and Brown were both expected to pass him on the depth chart).  He’s been on the block all summer for this reason, and it’s why he’d have been a bad fit here.

Wow, 19th season for Iggy. Iggy returning to GSW. I did not realize he was 18 seasons into his career already. He has been around a long time.

He has had a great career. I love how he plays; team first all the way.

Not to mention he (and LeBron) took out Hayward's ankle in 2017. Crowder is dead in my eyes.

Fultz fractured his toe in a preseason workout. Out indefinitely though no no surgery needed so may only miss training camp.

Lakers signed Matt Ryan to a camp deal.

Kid can shoot.

the takeaway I have is, if he was any good he'd still be in Boston.  If the Lakers end up with a real player, that is a problem

Lonzo Ball is reporting that he can't yet run or jump and that he feels pain climbing stairs.  His doctors aren't exactly sure what's going on.

They’re my pick to pop this year.  I put a bet at +210 on the over at 48.5 wins.

Did you see Zion at the Pels media day. Definitely looks like he trimmed down.

Dude has to stop with the heavy weight lifting though. His overall mass is still going to be an issue long term. Fat won't help his situation and he seems to have done something to alleviate that problem, but a reduction in body mass would help too. Lebron's mass has been reduced since his early 20's years old days. Zion can do it too.

Yup he looks a bit thinner. But let's see how he performs on court with a more trimmed body

He'll be fine as long as he can stay on the floor.

Yeah, talent isn't the issue. It's remaining healthy and being available to play that is his problem.
