Can we see Paul in a Lakers jersey in our lifetime? ( II )

If Paul wants to play in Los Angeles, the only obstacle now is the sign-and-trade between the Suns and Lakers. Paul would have to make a personal sacrifice and decline his $44 million player option for the final year to have a chance to win the Cup in Los Angeles with James and the Brow.

It’s a hard thing to do, even for a player who has made hundreds of millions of dollars in his career, and it’s almost impossible to put money on the table.

Richard Jefferson has talked about Paul’s title bid, saying, “Honestly, I wouldn’t give up $40 million at the end of my career if I were you. It’s silly to even talk about it. I think Paul will be more like Kidd at the end of his career. Kidd was a dominant player on the court, and he went to the Mavericks as an on-court ball handler. He’s not putting up triple-doubles every night like he used to, but he’s still a good point guard. So, I think when Paul’s contract is over, he will play 1-2 years as a starting point guard for a championship team, and his salary will probably match his performance better then. However, if Paul really wants a championship ring, have him ready for $44 million and I can give him my 2016 one.”

So why would Paul do this?

This is how Ben understands it, because a championship might be more valuable to Paul. He is destined to be one of the legends of the sport of basketball, but there are still questions about him from the outside. That he can’t stay healthy in critical moments or even touch the Western Conference floor, let alone be able to lead his team to the NBA Finals. He played with star players like James Harden, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, but never made it.

The Los Angeles Lakers, who won the championship in 2020 and had a chance to defend their title, would be the favorites to win the title in 2022 if Paul joins the team. The Lakers could send Kyle Kuzma, Mondriz Haller and Dennis Schroder to the Sun.

It’s time for the Lakers and Paul to renew their relationship.

In 2011, the NBA vetoed one of the biggest trades in basketball history – the Lakers failed to acquire Chris Paul. The main voice of the veto came from Cleveland Cavaliers owner Daniel Gilbert. He said that if the Lakers got Chris Paul plus “The Beast” Howard, no team in the league had a chance against the Lakers led by Paul and Kobe, except for the Miami Heat, Boston Celtics and Dallas Mavericks at the time.

Apparently he was so stunned by the super team that he complained to former NBA president David Stern and vetoed the deal.

Ten years later, the Lakers have another chance to acquire the “god of point guards”, only Paul is not the same as he was ten years ago, but what remains the same is that he is as smart as he was ten years ago.

What jersey number is Russell Westbrook wearing?

Russell Westbrook wears jersey number 0. Because the NBA players who wear jersey number 0 are some players with great personality. And the players who can wear the No. 0 jersey are very powerful superstars. For example, Lillard, Cousins and so on are invariably first-class masters. Will less than 2008 through the draft into the NBA, with Durant, Harden, Ibaka formed enough to make the whole league tremble “Thunder four”. And with excellent play in 2012 to kill the NBA finals, when the Thunder four are still too young, both technical aspects or age mentality are not mature enough. So against the veteran and long-established “Heat three” is still a big gap. So there is no doubt that the score is still hanging.

At that time, Russell Westbrook was very frustrated, because it was still very difficult for the young and vigorous Russell Westbrook, his inner revenge anger is also brewing for a long time, but the team’s management in order to save 4 million yuan of luxury tax but traded away the then one of the core giants of Harden. Later the Thunder also entered the Western Conference finals but the distance from the championship and the finals is getting farther and farther away.

It was later reversed against Curry’s Warriors. What followed is familiar to everyone, as the Thunder’s big man Durant defected to join the Warriors. This also stirred up the strongest Russell Westbrook, who in the following days won his own scoring king and regular season MVP and had four seasons averaging a triple-double, finally succeeding in surpassing the historical triple-double king Big O Robertson, becoming the new triple-double king.

Russell Westbrook later also flourished, as age and explosive power decline, Russell Westbrook began to wander in the Rockets, Wizards incessantly. The once regular season MVP fell to the league’s outcasts and vagabonds. Until this season joined the Lakers, teaming up with James, Brow and others to form a reigning league “Lakers Big Three”. Although Russell Westbrook in the Lakers play and adapt badly, slow to find their appropriate position and role.

After losing two games in a row in the opening, Russell Westbrook is getting better and better, in today’s game where James is absent cut 33 + 10 + 8 quasi-triple-double data dream back to the peak, I hope to re-clothe the Lakers 0 jersey Russell Westbrook can play better and better, early to assist James to get the coveted championship it.
