    If so, how many?

    I'm thinking he'll win anywhere from 1-3, depending on how next year's offseason goes and depending on how long he stays a Laker. He can technically opt out after 3 years, could leave after 4, or could stay even longer than 4, who knows.

    I voted 2, not too confident in that though. Warriors aren't going away anytime soon, although I'm hoping Klay leaves after this year.

    Got a feeling lots of people will say 0 lol, but I really doubt that tbh..They'll get another star at some point plus Ingram at the very least will be great out of the young core, probably 2-3 others will be very good or great as well.

    I think he’s gonna get one. No chance this year though, next year if he gets a co-star (ideally Kawhi) and a better supporting cast, I think he’ll have a 2-3 year window to win a championship. He also has to hope the Warriors start to break apart in anyway in the coming years. But every legendary Laker won a championship with them, it’s hard to imagine LeBron not doing that as well.

    Yep he’s gonna get at least 1, maybe 2. Would love to see him get 3 and tie Jordan for rings, but who knows how much time he has left.

    I would say yes, but not this year, and maybe not even next year.

    I think he has a decent chance, but it all depends on several factors. First, he's already played for 15 seasons being the focal point of his team every season. He's played at least 66 games (only counting regular season) in each of those 15 years, a decline has to come sooner rather than later. Second, a big free agent(s) signing next year and then if the Warriors stay together. That said, personally I'd love to see him get one or more in LA

    Yes I think so. Unless after the first year, things go terribly wrong and none of the young players turn out to be good. Enough to piss Lebron off and he leaves. I could see winning 2 titles, if LeBrons teammates hold up to their hype.

    Maybe. Really depends how long the core of that warriors team stays together lol. Also, who Lakers pick up next offseason is huge.

    Scottie Pippen not walking through that door :lmaooo:
    I don't he has a chance unless they get a big FA next year like Kawhi, JB, Klay, Kyrie, etc.

    I think he gets at least one. I see Klay joining him in LA.

    I don't see how Klay to Lakers is a believable option. He clearly enjoys being a Warrior and everything that comes with it. But IF he joins the Lakers next year, the core improves and they get Kawhi (which I consider it to be a 80-90% sure option), it's a wrap. GSW will have Cousins, Durant, Curry and Green (which is hard to belive due to contract issues but who knows) and Lakers will have LeBron, Klay, Kawhi and the rest of the core and if they get better there's that. It's Lakers and GSW in the West next year, 100%.

    That reply was implying that they do. I don’t think the Warriors have more than 2 more dominant years in them either. The west could potentially be wide open, and with a young improving core + a big FA, the Lakers are in solid shape.

    Why wouldn't they? They're not gonna let Klay AND Dray walk. As long as you have a big 3 of Steph/KD/Klay I don't see them falling off

    They will more than likely eventually lose one of those two cuz of their cap situation. KD isn’t about to take a vet min.

    With a ton of very good free agents available next year, I don't see how it's even possible the Lakers don't get 1 of them..I mean is it really gonna be that hard to find a top player who wants to team with Bron in LA with a lot of talented young players around them and (likely) compete for a championship? Doubt it, they'll get someone.

    Klay and Kawhi seem like the most believable options at this point, but I dunno I'd have to take another look at the list and see. I'm more worried bout losing some of the younger pieces once their rookie deals are up, hope they can keep Kuz, Ingram and Hart for good.
