The title alone irritated me by reminding me that the moron had a chance to go to the Warriors, have a better chance of winning a title next year, and give us a piece or two for the future. Idiot.

Klay isn't a terrible defender. He gets lost, but he has good tools, good length, and decent athleticism. and he's a solid shooter. He's a guy I'd really, really like to have on this team.

I'd love him if he's available and affordable. Can't hear the video at work, what does he say?

I'd guess it's something like "Of course you always have to listen if the Lakers talk and I'd love to play here one day, but right now I'm focused on Golden State". Right?

What he's been doing in the offseason: golf, his dog, chillin' with family.

Big GSW signings.

"Hopefully, top four in the West."

"Lakers and Blazers favorite teams growing up."

"I try not to look much into the future. We have a good thing going in GSW. It would be great playing for the Lakers, but I can't speak for the future."

If Kobe came to you, could you turn him down? "I could. I'm happy where I'm at." (But obviously he likes the Lakers.)

Thanks t.

He seems like a good kid and he still has room to grow I think. He can be more than a one-dimensional player. Hopefully the moves Golden State made don't stunt his growth. There's only so many minutes to go around with Klay, Barnes, and Iguodala now.

So far Paul George & Klay have been hit with this question about how hard it would be to turn down a Kobe recruitment pitch. Hopefully both pitches take place & work. We'd be set on the wings for a decade + & I think PG can get a bit stronger & play some stretch 4 like Lebron/Durant/Melo

Yep. Not sure why some people say he can't play D at all. Klay is a very capable defender. I guess it's a stigma of being a shooter. Same thing with Ray Allen. People say he can't D either but he's been solid on that end his entire career.
