    Oladipo has an interview with The Breakfast Club from yesterday, in which he says he's underpaid lol
    Not a great interview at all, because it's not sports or music heavy enough for me, but it's something to watch.

    From what I've been told from Laker Fans, Randle is garbage on both ends of the court and Clarkson isn't anything more than an average scoring Guard at best. Pass for me.

    Really? I mean, what we got was no great shakes, but that Lakers package is pretty putrid.

    I would have waived PG before accepting that offer. That is not an exageration.

    Yeah I think KP takes that package if Ingram or the #2 pick is included. Either one. So Randle + Clarkson + #2 + #27, or Ingram + Clarkson, or Ingram + #2. Ingram and the #2 pick didn't make their way into either package so KP wasn't interested in doing business, and rightfully so.

    He's really shown a whole new side to himself since he went further west. Not a good look IMO but then again he doesn't care what I think.

    I was going to say petty but then again people did give him a hard time for going to the Warriors and it turns out he made the right decision so to the victor go the spoils.

    KD is soft because wants to play with a great team and compete for championships.

    Kyrie is selfish because he would rather try and forge his own way instesd of riding the coattails of Lebron James.

    Im not a fan of KD's decision anymore than the next guy. Obviously these are two separate extreme, but the point still stands. its almost damned if you do, damned if you don't it seems

    Not very comparable at all. KD is one of the great talents in NBA history who took the easiest road possible to a title instead of having a challenge. Irving is a great player, but is nowhere near Durant's talents level. He was completely irrelevant before Lebron helped make him a household name.

    People criticizing his decision had nothing to do with winning rings. There's not a soul on Earth who is surprised that a top 2 talent won a title on a 73 win team.

    Players use personal motivations all the time. Not all that dumb.

    Yeah, but writing it on your kicks is a bit extreme.

    If Kyrie left to go play in GS, I'd imagine the backlash would have been something similar to what KD received. Perhaps not as nasty, but it would've been a hot topic of debate.

    As while I agree about the talent discrepancy, the same things were said about Kobe when he wanted to break away from Shaq (as far as him being selfish for wanting to forge his own way)

    The cupcake hat right after the Finals was pretty funny. I thought "ok, stick it to 'em - you earned it."

    And now he just keeps going...

    Really does reek of insecurity. Except that everything he does right now is probably going to sell like crazy, so keep feeding the hot hand in this case.

    But yeah, I liked him a lot more when he was quiet and humble. This BS can fly a kite.

    Wasn't he getting really mad at Skip Bayless last year too? He also seemed irked at Peyt's hilarious jokes at the ESPY's. He seems incredibly sensitive for an athlete who should be on top of the world. It's one thing to stick it to the haters, but writing on your kicks is a bit silly.

    Totally agree. If you're like, the walk-on underdog, barely made the squad but now you've gotta make the game winner, this kinda thing would be really cool, totally legit motivation.

    As the MVP, a champion, and one of the best 2-3 players in the world, it feels tacky and immature.
