Yes, I was the one who posted it. They got those same guys now as they would have gotten then. And they got No. 4 overall (which turned into 8/17/35/future first) instead of Kuz. My initial reaction was a lot like yours but the more time passes, the more I like the package they got.

They were offered two firsts plus the same three guys and Kuz.

>...is this more...?

They declined to not cave into the Klutch meddling but their hand was pretty much forced here. Even with essentially unilateral negotiations, the Lakers had to up their offer by including 1) a more valuable asset in place of Kuzma and 2) pick swap options that weren't there previously.

He got fired because he had been there forever and they are starting over. Do you think the OWNERSHIP let him handle this all on his own? Please, they were involved every step of the way and if they wanted the deal at the deadline, it would have gotten done.

What woe is me? All I am stating is the obvious, that they went all in on LeBron's tenure. That makes sense. Not sure why you're mad about it, but then again many of your thoughts are mysteries to me.
