PSA: You Will Hear A Lot of Narratives in the Next 3 Weeks Until the Draft
"Boston is no longer interested in AD."

"Boston is only including one of Tatum and Brown."

"Why Jayson Tatum/Jaylen Brown/Brandon Ingram are the best young players in basketball"

"Knicks won't include RJ Barrett in AD trade."

"Knicks thinking about trading back for more picks."

"Anthony Davis reiterates he will only resign with LAL and NYK."

"Sources say Jrue Holiday is on the trading block"



Just as PSA for those out there. There will be a TON of narratives run over the next few weeks. Some of it will be posturing, others will be about gaining leverage, you'll have people reading too deep into innocuous comments, others will pretend to have inside sources, some will be people trolling to get a reaction, and very very few will actually have credible information.

My advice, you can take it or leave it, is try not to get caught up in the whirlwind and take everything you hear with a grain of salt.

This is gonna fall on many a deaf ear.

It's too easy for people to get caught up. Not to mention a host of fake and trolls out there who just want clicks.

All of this is true but I’m gonna probably get mad at least 17 times before he’s traded.

I couldn’t agree with ya more Deion. Unfortunately, it will more than likely fall in deaf ears like you said. Until then, prepare yourself for overreactions and tons of 2k inspired AD trades.

Anything you don’t want to hear— > false narrative

Things you want to hear—-> truth


A reporter says something you don’t like —-> mouthpiece

That in a nutshell Lester. That’s one of the main reasons why people hate Crewz on this board.

The few people who dislike Crewz are trolls or are simply jealous. Many on this message board like to read his input, it is refreshing...

Alvin Gentry is a fan of the idea of teaming up Ball with Jrue Holiday...

During an interview with ESPNLA 710, Andrew Lopez of the Times-Picayune.

I don't know how to add link.

Gentry Dreaming of Lonzo and Jrue?

Barring a stunning reversal, the New Orleans Pelicans will trade disgruntled cornerstone Anthony Davis at some point during the offseason. If the Los Angeles Lakers are the winning bidder, Lonzo Ball will be joining New Orleans.

During an interview with ESPNLA 710, Andrew Lopez of the Times-Picayune shared that Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry is a fan of the idea of teaming up Ball with Jrue Holiday?if the Boston Celtics don't land Davis.

"It's probably Boston first, and then I'd put the Lakers second," Lopez said. "The Lakers do have good assets that people in the Pelicans organization value. For instance, Alvin Gentry loves the idea of having a Lonzo Ball-Jrue Holiday backcourt."

Lopez added LaVar Ball, Lonzo's father, isn't a fan of that.

Zion Williamson is poised to usher in the franchise's new era, and having a pair of All-Star talents in the backcourt should only help his transition from Duke to the NBA.

And Alvin Gentry’s scouts and analysts will soon show him how having two non shooters who don’t get free throws in the same backcourt is a poor idea

Totally agree. Not to mention having a backcourt that does not go the free throw line. And is Ball even able to be on the floor to end games with his abysmal free throw percentage?

There would be a lot of Hack-a-Ball.

If Gentry liked Ball so much than he would have traded to AD for him plus many other assets. I think it’s fake news from a guy who isn’t not really connected to the team (like Jake, Will, or Mason) fueling the illusions to Laker fans.
