First Things First: Cris Carter and Nick Wright




  • Do the Lakers need a third star to join LeBron and Anthony Davis?

    • First Things First: Cris Carter and Nick Wright yes because that’s the only way Lebron has won in the past

    • No because they’re not winning a championship regardless of who they sign. Lebum is washed up and doesn’t play defense.

    • Adam 818lakers he doesn’t see curry under achieving is why they lost every finals they lost that’s a fact curry doesn’t show up in the finals and he’s even less dependable with the game on the line which is why kd was added because Steph couldn’t get the job done

    • DC Riloo no it shows curry has had a better front office he’s not half the player lebron is and that’s a fact regardless of how good curry is he’s no Lebron who who would have beaten Toronto with the cast curry had curry isn’t clutch in the playoffs like harden he’s under achieved for years in the playoffs while Mj Kobe and Lebron continued to dominate in the playoffs and by the way box and one can’t shut any of them down like it shut curry down facts you think about that before you talk silly bro you know mj kobe and lebron are top 5 curry will never be that ever so stop it not only is Lebron terrible at scouting and recruiting talent but so are all the executives he played for there’s more to the game than shooting 3 pointers you have to show up and win finals mvp then you can make that argument curry is awesome but he’s no Lebrun James and you know that everybody knows that

  • 1:49 has to be the stupidest thing I've ever heard from an LBJ (_l_) kisser. Kawhi was 22 when he won his first Finals MVP so you're telling me Kawhi has always been a better player mentally than the greatest ever? Also, MJ was close to Lebron's age when he won his first title at 28 with only Pippen at his side and he didn't let the moment get to be too much for him in that Finals. LBJ had Bosh and Wade. WTF?!?

  • AD health is factor for sure. LeBron can score but plays no defense. And Kuzma is hot or cold on offense with no middle ground. Even if they sign a bench they would need to play impossible hard every night..

  • The difference between the risk the Raptors took and the Lakers are about to fully take is, the Raptors had a great core and gave up players that needed to be traded without messing with the solid blocks of the building other than Demar Derozan. They could take Kawhi for one year, even if he leaves and all the others affiliated with the recent trades, they still have a good future. The Lakers on the other hand want to have a castle finished and ready to go just overnight. They either are going to get another All-star caliber player or maybe two to three supporting cast medium guys. Nevertheless, it'll probably be a team that doesn't know each other well enough, will probably have a bunch of leadership problems and miscommunication. For now, it looks like it will be a season carried only on the shoulders of James and Davis. Whatever is left isn't much noise, though Kuzma is a very good player.

  • They 100% need a good center. If Kawahi decides to leave the Raptors, Marc Gasol said that he would likely leave as well. Picking up Gasol as their center would really make the team legendary

  • Absolutely! They need two key elements that they are lacking: point guard and shooting guard. Why aren’t they targeting Kemba?He would fit well in their system, especially since LeBron is a pass first, shoot second. Also, Klay would be a great addition. I think they are going to be really good defensively if they add Klay. Anyone agree?
