Would the league even allow the lakers to buy out a 158 million dollar contract of Chris Paul's and sign him for the league minimum or does the league have no decision in the matter?The only other think if I read right is Chris Paul can forfeit some or all of his money on the buyout and sign with the lakers but why would he do that?It is said on a player per player basis so kind of confusing.

Anthony Davis trade, you have to add at a minimum Danny green and boogie cousins to the list of players the lakers get in trade. Because they don’t get those two players on the roster without AD recruiting. So it looks like lakers have the edge.

Hell no! CP3 is poison.

I don’t ever agree with Ryan....BUT you just heard boogie and AD praising rondo and he personally recruited boogie to come to LA. How terrible would that be chemistry wise to kick that player for his arch rival? On paper I would too but the chemistry does play a huge part.

The worst thing about Chris Paul that people to this day still don’t get is the hallow expectations. That by itself will ruin any team. I wished someday I will be lucky 🍀 in life like Chris Paul, get paid so much for nothing. Who said that god isn’t unfair ??

Can you permanently replace Ryan with Dominique Foxworth.Foxworth didn't even play basketball and makes better arguments and more sense than the ex NBA player.

Christopher Fischetti
while I don't think Rondo isn't that bad I believe he needs to switch it up in order to still be a help for the team.
Robert Nelson Jr.
When this man said Rondo was better than Cp3 he officially lost his basketball card. He should be banned from talking basketball forever 💯

Rondo is better than CP3 ----- CP3 is Great but regular season - but "PLAYOFF RONDO" trumps "NONPLAYOFF CP3" 100 out 100 times.

Rondo is not better then chris paul. But his attitude by all means is better then chris pauls i am sorry. So if i had to choose. I would choose rondo. The playmaking is almost equal between the two. Chris is a better shooter. But he just seems like a spoiled little brat. You can say ohh rondo has a worse attitude. But i dont think that's true. I think rondo has issues with coaches not players really. Unless you're a straight up dick like paul. Not to mention, the last thing we need is a little A whole like paul to join the team. And AD not like him. And then end up having AD sign somewhere else next offseason. Rondo has already showed that he is good friends with lebron, AD, and cousins. Perfect fit if you ask me. Hate ryan hollins though. Man's a idiot.
