Haha, battle of LA is going to be good, I’d be backing the clippers though.

The Staples Center is going to be sold out every night in the NBA next season.

Cousins signed for the Lakers for $3.5m, too. That is going to be a good frontcourt for the Lakers. But the real story is Kawhi and Paul George to the Clippers. Wow.

Poor Westy. He should be a beast but the game literally changed from right underneath him. His skill set is not desirable right now in the current climate of NBA basketball. Feel for him.

I don’t. Never really warmed to Russ.

All the talk is he goes to Miami. Would be hilarious to see him and Butler on the same team.

Also, how stupid have some of these jersey retirements been?! KD joined an existing super team, wins a couple of rings and then gets his jersey retired.

It’s an unofficial retirement for as long as the current chairman is in place. Definitely trying to save face for bringing Durant back way too early and him missing next season. Even the official statement for the “retirement” is a whole lot of kiss arse. Durant could probably sue the team for wrongly clearing him to play but this makes it hard to do because it wouldn’t be a good look. Smart of the team in fact.

If the GSW want to officially retire a jersey though. They should begin with Andre Iguodala.

Houston to petition the league to start allowing 2 basketballs on the court at the same time.

Westbrook and Harden on the same team? Yeah, what can go wrong.

Feel super sorry for CP3 but that Houston team is going to be ******* hilarious to watch.
