Wasn’t this actually poaching?“It is what it is,” Paul George explained Wednesday, when he really meant it was what it wasn’t.The small forward with the big appeal, visiting Staples Center with the rest of the Oklahoma City Thunder, returned home for the first time since the Lakers were fined for tampering with him – something George said never occurred. Paul George ‘wanted to go home’ to play for Lakers; his hometown hopes he still does center_img Anyway, whatever happened last summer doesn’t matter now, not compared to what will happen next summer, when, based on overall sentiment, everyone plus a few people expect George to sign as a free agent with the Lakers.He grew up about 70 miles from downtown L.A., in Palmdale, as a Lakers fan, and has done an absolutely horrible job hiding his lingering affinity for the team and the city.When introduced before the game Wednesday, George was cheered almost as much as any of the players already with the Lakers.One fan sitting courtside showed up wearing a Lakers jersey bearing George’s name and number, even though “13” already has been retired by the team.If the signing does happen, that $500,000 already spent becomes less of a fine and more of a down payment, a wise investment stemming from an initial decision that didn’t appear to be wise in the least bit.LeBron James also will be a free-agent target this summer, Lakers fans hoping Pelinka and team president Magic Johnson are more precise with their aim than Lonzo Ball has been so far.It is especially fun to speculate on what the Lakers could become because talking about what they are – and have been for awhile now – is fun only to people who enjoy things like spasming stomach distress.Young and inexperienced and maddeningly unable to conceal either, the Lakers continue to flail away with performances completely lacking in any version of consistency.Forget for now trying to find their way as a team. These guys remain rightly consumed with trying to find their way as individuals.Wednesday arrived with fans here longing for a return to the glory days of this franchise, you know, back when the Lakers were winning summer league championships.They entered this matchup with the Thunder having lost seven in a row and 10 of 11, an extended stumble that dropped them to the bottom of the Western Conference with the unmistakable thud of a cadaver.This is still a proud franchise with 16 NBA championships and 11 retired numbers and one player currently unable to leave the state because he has to instead remain in jail.But, hey, things could be worse. LaVar Ball still could be mocking Luke Walton after every defeat.The Los Angeles Times couldn’t even wait until the start of 2018 to hold off on a headline announcing “This Lakers season can’t end soon enough …” And don’t you just hate when the media doesn’t have patience with a local team?Personally, I’m willing to give the Lakers until this summer, until they secure George and James, before demanding they travel backward in time and make this a 60-win season.But maybe we should temper the anticipation just a bit. Remember, uniting Steve Nash and Dwight Howard with Kobe Bryant was once considered the answer around here, too, and the Lakers are still recovering from that disaster.The difference today is this group is much younger, a reality holding back the Lakers now but one that has to improve with, well, with age.It rarely happens free of pain, watching a young team grow. But even the worst pain in life can’t last forever.The Lakers are banking on a couple trophy catches easing the suffering, and one of those catches was in town Wednesday.After several summers of free-agent failure, they’re bound to land a big one eventually, this big one in Oklahoma City today, though George still hasn’t officially gotten away. Tampering is considered a no-no in the NBA, the league preferring that teams refrain from negotiating with players who are already under contract with other teams. Seems fair enough.Reports in August indicated that the penalty was the result of an improper discussion between Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka and George’s agent, Aaron Mintz.But George said his former employers, the Pacers, were upset about conversations he had with Brian Shaw, a Lakers assistant coach and someone he worked with while both were in Indiana.George, who called Shaw a “mentor,” suggested the two talked only about “fishing and challenging each other on fishing trips.”I don’t know. I’d think a mentor and his pupil would discuss topics with a little more depth than that, but who knows, some people are really into fishing, I guess.last_img read more

first_imgDeja Bron.Yes, we’ve been here before … annually for four years … with LeBron James in the NBA Finals against the Warriors, who won two of the previous meetings and led the third 3-1 before LeBron led the Cavaliers in their historic rally to win the 2016 title.We’re off to a thrilling, almost shocking start with the Warriors in predictable post-Rockets lethargy and the Cavs blowing Game 1 before losing in overtime. I’d still put the over-under on Cleveland wins at one, in which case the Cavs can try to rally from 3-1 down again.A lot changed in a week and it’s not good news in Lakerdom. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersThe Warriors looked set to fall with the Rockets about to go up 3-2 when Chris Paul, who had scored nine of his 20 points in the fourth quarter, missed a turnaround in the lane and fell awkwardly with 51 seconds left in Game 5.Signaling he was really hurt, he didn’t get up and run back to play defense. (The Warriors didn’t score with Quinn Cook missing an open 3-point attempt.)That ended Paul’s season and, ultimately, Houston’s. The Rockets who opened double-digit leads in Games 6 and 7 but burned out and were run over in both with Coach Mike D’Antoni’s already short playoff rotations down a man they couldn’t afford to lose.More fans than Houston’s winced at the sight of CP3 limping, including those in Lakerdom.The Lakers’ anticipated pursuit of James and Paul George always depended on a number of things happening, which seemed to be thisclose to coming true. Their young team had shown promise. LeBron and George appeared to have no better options. VIDEO: Watch Kyle Kuzma’s game winner and what he said about it George’s Thunder had lost in the first round with Carmelo Anthony disappearing, showing the PG-Melo-Russell Westbrook combination didn’t work.LeBron’s Cavaliers had to rally from 3-2 to beat the young Celtics without Kyrie Irving. Showing how little that impressed anyone, the Cavs then became historic Finals underdogs with listing them at 10-1 meaning Warriors bettors had to put up $10 to win $1.Had the Rockets won a title, they still would have pursued James but not with their current desperation after falling short yet again … which is necessary since they’d have to dump most of their players.For his part, LeBron would have been leery about the way joining a title winner would have looked. Kevin Durant is still being sneered at for joining the Warriors and they were coming off their 2016 Finals loss to the Cavaliers.What had only been speculated upon is now happening … or being speculated on so much, it might as well be happening … after the New York Times’ Marc Stein assured a questioner on Twitter that “Paul has already begun his recruitment of James.”Speculative as it was, it’s safe to assume. James and CP3 aren’t just close, they’re best buddies with Paul the godfather to LeBron’s oldest child, LeBron Jr.Moreover, that means something to James. LeBron, CP3 and Melo have talked throughout their careers about their desire to play with each other outside the Olympics if they ever got the chance.Nor will it bother James to be in a second-tier market like Houston, rather than a glamor capital like Los Angeles. If the best players usually want the brightest lights and the biggest stage, LeBron is 180 degrees different. It has always been a personal conceit that wherever he is is a marquee market. He wasn’t even 21 as a young NBA player when he began convening an annual marketing conference – in his hometown of Akron, not even nearby Cleveland – obliging his sponsors to show up there.It’s true that LeBron owns two pricey homes in Brentwood, suggesting that he is, indeed, thinking about the Lakers … but that might mean little in the end.“These days it doesn’t matter because you can be known and be a star from anywhere – anywhere in the world,” Maverick Carter, LeBron’s point man, recently told syndicated talk show host Rich Eisen.“I mean, could he sell a few more sneakers if he was in a gigantic market like Boston, Chicago, New York, or L.A.? Maybe. But not as much as if he wins. What matters the most is if he wins. When you win as an athlete, that matters the most.”Sign up for Home Turf and get 3 exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.In the end, it will depend on what feels right to James.The Rockets would have to move everybody except Paul, James Harden, Clint Capela, Trevor Ariza and Ryan Anderson to clear enough cap space.(They could keep Eric Gordon and P.J. Tucker if they can find a taker for Anderson, the stretch four who fell into disuse, but with two years and $41 million left on his contract, it remains to be seen if GM Daryl Morey can pull that off.)Who knows?Maybe LeBron would prefer to be The Man, as he always has been, with George and the young Lakers, rather than a big piece in an ensemble cast on a team in a town that has always belonged to Harden.Dwyane Wade manfully moved over for James in Miami, becoming another of his close friends, but LeBron knows how hard situations like that can be. Philadelphia also will reportedly be in the picture, suggesting the 76ers aren’t high on their potential with Markelle Fultz, who’s no longer as universally admired as he was before his lost, injury-filled rookie season.Related Articles Jubilation, anguish as race for NBA’s Western 8th seed gets as close as ever First, the 76ers have to straighten out this story about GM Bryan Colangelo and burner Twitter accounts linked to him, or his wife, that tweeted bad things about 76ers players. Whether or not Colangelo did anything wrong, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe speculate that Colenagelo might be fired to eliminate any question … because they intend to pursue LeBron.Of course, you can hear CP3 from here:Don’t worry about it, Bron. We’ll bring in a bunch of minimum salary guys like Mike Miller, who followed you all over the league, to make open shots and rebound. We’ll plow those !@#$% Warriors under and I’ll shimmy in front of Steph Curry until he gets dizzy and falls over.Let’s see, am I forgetting any LeBron suitors?Oh, right, the Cavaliers.

first_img Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Many factors are feeding the fanbase’s unrest of late, perhaps nothing more than the dramatic dropoff from soaring expectations last summer when James signed with the Lakers. Fans such as 29-year-old Catherine Kim, a dedicated follower of the Lakers Reddit thread, assumed that James – who had fought his way to eight consecutive NBA Finals and won three – would provide an immediate lift to a franchise that hasn’t been to the postseason since 2013, a longer drought than any point in franchise history.A 37-45 season has been deflating, which has colored everything that’s happened since: Johnson quitting his role (without notifying anyone beforehand), Luke Walton leaving the team, a coaching search that was set back when the Lakers couldn’t come to terms with Ty Lue. Kim, who is expecting to give birth later this year, said she wants to see some cohesion from her favorite team before her baby arrives.“I’m really, really frustrated,” she said with an exasperated smile. “It’s sad to hear that nothing is really happening: It’s always drama.”The plaza outside Staples Center hasn’t been the only venue where fans have voiced their disappointment: Social media has been rife with such sentiments. A Wednesday Instagram post by Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea gained some traction online (more than 22,000 likes) when he vented about the failures of the past season, as well as the confusing direction of the front office while wishing for a competent and hard-working team over a star-studded one.“Right now, the Lakers are making no sense,” he wrote. “Explain me this: They have LeBron James, incredible young talent, all the cap space in the world, yet they appear to be in the most dismal place in franchise history. This is inexplicable to me.”That’s the picture many fans seem to have about the Lakers in their heads: a team with many assets and advantages that has been hamstrung by murky decision-making. At the protest itself, there wasn’t much consensus on who was the actual scapegoat of the organization: Some seemed to blame General Manager Rob Pelinka; some went after Kurt and Linda Rambis, who have been close advisors to the team in the last month; some directly challenged owner Jeanie Buss, who has yet to bring the team back to the playoffs under her stewardship since jettisoning her brother Jim Buss in 2017 along with longtime GM Mitch Kupchak.That team itself hasn’t helped unclutter the sense of organizational power: No top Lakers official has spoken publicly on the record since the season ended on April 9, which was when Johnson left. Cris Lehman, a 32-year-old Lakers fan who lives downtown, said the trait he’d like to see with the Lakers is structure, which he believes Jeanie Buss could put into place unilaterally.Related Articlescenter_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersIt’s a sentiment perhaps best expressed by 37-year-old Julian Payton, who shook his head as he passed the Staples Center scene while pushing his nearly 2-year-old son in a stroller.“Man, Clipper Darrell is trolling us now,” he said. “This is sad.”Born in Maryland, Payton is a lifelong Lakers fan who came of age during the Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal championship runs of the early 2000s. He wore a ballcap reading “MAKE THE LAKERS GREAT AGAIN,” and his infant son was sleeping in a Lakers hooded sweatshirt.Payton was more spectator than participant, but he related to the feelings that would push people out into the streets – particularly a sense that the Lakers’ front office failed to assemble a playoff-bound roster around LeBron James, as well as constant leaks and rumors about the organization’s ongoing coaching search that have made them look fractured and indecisive.“It’s a soap opera,” Payton said. “It’s been a soap opera all season, probably for the first time since Shaq and Kobe were fighting. But back then people still respected us because we had won. We’re more of a joke now.” Previous“Clipper Darrell” tells fed up Lakers fans that it is now is the era of Clippers in Los Angeles.

(Photo by David Crane, Los Angeles Daily News/SCNG)ExpandLOS ANGELES — Seven teenagers spilled out onto Georgia Street as noon struck on Friday. They were armed with Lakers jerseys, signs spouting over-the-top sentiments, and looking for attention.“Where’s the protest?” one of them asked, as they rushed toward the looming horizon of Staples Center.They found what they sought under the statue of Elgin Baylor, storming a small demonstration of several dozen fed-up Lakers fans and taking over the spotlight of the media surrounding and outnumbering the actual participants. Cameras tend to gravitate toward those who speak the loudest, and the teenagers attacked microphones with youthful enthusiasm, albeit with confused messages. The drama ramped up when Darrell Bailey, best known as Clippers superfan “Clipper Darrell,” jumped into the fray to shout that the Lakers’ era was over – and was subsequently shouted down by the rowdy crowd.But behind a hijacked “protest” outside the venue where the Lakers have underachieved in the last year, there was an authentic sentiment of frustration that is far more widespread than the small showing Friday afternoon. As the Lakers continue to seek a head coach and have no apparent plans to replace president of basketball operations Magic Johnson, there’s an undercurrent of concern that the team is lacking cohesion and direction at a pivotal moment. The discord he’s seen, particularly in the wake of the failed negotiations with Lue after which unflattering details leaked, doesn’t indicate that the team is working to instill that. He believes the Lakers can still recover that, given the presence of James, their cap space and their market.“Now that we’re in that position to succeed, we’re falling all over ourselves,” Lehman opined. “Because we don’t have the right people in place to do the right things.”What would sate many of the disgruntled is a clear sense of direction and established roles of influence. The Lakers’ muddled process has damaged confidence that the team can begin to bounce back this summer, when the NBA free agent market will include several high-profile players. Some concise decisions and direct messaging might put the Lakers’ faithful back into their ranks.Until then, Bailey – who seemed to be nourished by the schadenfreude of the spectacle – had some advice for frustrated fans across the hall, drawn from his fallow years as a Clippers devotee.“Hang in there and be patient,” he said, squeezing in words between breathless guffaws. “That’s the only message I can give them.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

first_imgAt the same time, despite his weekend remarks, he has enjoyed his time in Detroit, so he very well could be trying to raise his trade value for the good of the team. Either way, Castellanos is pointing out something and that statement could easily influence some of the conversations about his game. We’ll see if this changes his worth in other teams’ eyes though and results in a deal.One thing is for sure though, if and when Castellanos leaves Detroit, he’s not going to miss Comerica.”I mean, they can move in center and right-center field,” he said. “There’s no reason I hit a ball 434 feet off (Nationals right-hander) Anibal Sanchez and it goes in the first row. That shouldn’t happen. But I’m not in charge of that either.” “This park is a joke,” he told reporters, via the Detroit News. “It’s to the point where how are we going to be compared to the rest of the people in the league in terms of power numbers, OPS, slugging and all that stuff when we got a yard out here that’s 420 feet straight across center field?”Castellanos was a top-10 prospect before he made his MLB debut in 2013, but he has never quite developed the power many evaluators thought he would. He was given a future 70-grade power by MLB Pipeline in 2013 which has been given to only a few players such as Miguel Sano with the Twins and Joey Gallo of the Rangers. Related News MLB trade rumors: Cubs interested in Tigers’ Nicholas Castellanos MLB trade rumors: Cubs, Braves may be looking at Tigers’ Nicholas Castellanoscenter_img Despite those projections, he has never hit more than 26 home runs at any level despite power numbers going up across the board in MLB. The 27-year-old seems to have an idea why, and he says opponents even point out part of the problem.”We’ll get on second base or third base and they’ll come up and be like, ‘Man, how do you guys do this?'” Castellanos said. “We play 81 games here, man. I don’t want to hear about the two you hit that are questionable.”To an extent Castellanos does have a point. He has 104 home runs in his career with 60 of those on the road. In his six-plus seasons with the Tigers at Comerica Park, he has hit a home run every 34.9 at-bats. In road games, he homers in every 26.4 at-bats.That is a difference, but it’s not a huge one. It probably comes out to about two home runs hit in an average per year (3,118 career at-bats at 26.4 ABs per home run = 118 career homers or 14 more in total over seven years).So how does this matter in the bigger picture? Castellanos, 27, is a free agent after the season, and it’s unlikely that he’ll re-sign with the Tigers. So Detroit is trying to trade him, and teams like the Cubs are interested. And if he wants to be traded, which he very well could, he might be trying to get better teams interested in him, leading to either a World Series chance this postseason or simply a chance to get with a team he could feel out and possibly consider re-signing with. Nicholas Castellanos is one of the Tigers’ two best trade chips, and he might be trying to help his value in an odd way.The Detroit outfielder hit a walkoff home run in Sunday’s 4-3 win over the Blue Jays, but he chose to vent his frustrations while speaking about the game.last_img read more

first_imgWEEK 5 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerDraftKings Week 5 Picks: NFL DFS cash lineupWEDNESDAY UPDATE: QB Jameis Winston, Buccaneers at Saints ($6,200). We’re picking up $500 in cap to swap out Deshaun Watson and put that money toward a premium RB approach. Saints allow the most DK points to quarterbacks.RB Christian McCaffrey ($8,700): Running CMC again because he spits out 30 points! I’m hesitant about some of the other $8K backs for cash with Zeke having Tyron Smith out, and Alvin Kamara’s floor lowered without Drew Brees.WEEK 5 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endWEDNESDAY UPDATE: RB Dalvin Cook, Vikings @ Giants ($8,400). Even in a nightmare spot trailing at Chicago last week, Cook still got enough work to scrape close to 20 points — by far his lowest output. A much more favorable look ahead in the Meadowlands.WR Alshon Jeffery, Eagles vs. Jets ($5,900). With DeSean Jackson sidelined, Jeffery paced the Eagles in targets last Thursday night in Green Bay. This should hold true against a far weaker pass defense in Gang Green, who allow the third-most DK points to receivers.WEEK 5 DFS LINEUPS:Y! cash | Y! GPP | FD cash | FD GPP | DK cash | DK GPPWEDNESDAY UPDATE: WR Golden Tate, Giants vs. Vikings ($4,600). Tate ripped off four seasons with 90-plus catches in Detroit and was on pace to repeat before getting shipped last season. It being his first game regular season game with Daniel Jones does give me some pause, but the Giants paid him handsomely enough to continue this high usage.WR DJ Chark Jr., Jaguars @ Panthers ($5,000). Gardner Minshew got it to Chark even when elite corner Chris Harris was attempting to corral the breakout sophomore, slinging it Chark’s way eight times on Sunday. He’s the target leader for Jacksonville’s quite-functional pass offense.TE Austin Hooper, Falcons @ Texans ($4,500). This price remains way too low for a tight end coming off consecutive 25-point weeks. Hooper quietly edges Travis Kelce in targets, and the Falcons figure to go pass-heavy yet again as road dogs.MORE WEEK 5 DFS: Stacks | Values | Lineup builder Last week’s DraftKings cash ilneup hit on Christian McCaffrey and Kenny Golladay but got shredded by Sammy Watkins and Marlon Mack. The Vegas total and Darius Slay’s absence set up nicely for Watkins, while Mack was projected for positive game script and a heavy workload, before the Raiders went up and Mack watched from the sideline. No worries — we’ll go right back to McCaffrey while securing decent floors elsewhere in our daily fantasy football Week 5 cash lineup.We’re taking advantage of a Monday night development after prices were set to help us fill in the top running back and D/ST on Sunday main slate. FLEX Auden Tate, Bengals vs. Cardinals ($3,500). This free square let’s us fit a CMC and and Pats D. John Ross left the Monday nighter with an injury, and Tate has led Cincy in receiving yards over the past two weeks with 16 targets in that span.WEDNESDAY UPDATE: DST Titans vs. Bills ($3,000). It’s looking as if Josh Allen is out and we can save $1,300 off the Pats. Good defense catching mid-tier price at home against Josh Allen, who has multiple turnovers in other tough matchups this season.last_img read more
