  • AD from Chicago so is it really a stretch? If Lakers win this year he might end up like Kawhi and sign with his hometown team. In both cases they were/are on expiring contracts.

  • I don't believe A.D will go to the Bulls next season, perhaps later in his nba career he might. I'm from Chicago too, but if I were an Nba star I wouldn't join a rebuilding Bulls team with a poor decision-making front office. I also prefer to live somewhere warm all year round. Chicago's corrupt politics and cold winters alone are hard to live with, not to mention its crime rate.

  • It doesn’t make sense for him to even leave the lakers in general, he forced his way out new orleans, because that team wasn’t going anywhere, and said he only wanted to be in LA, even if the lakers lose, I think he’ll still resign and give them a chance, but hey who knows? We’re all laughing now, but he could end up with the bulls😂

  • Both these children are idiots. AD like all super stars follow the money, fame and sentiment as to where they feel comfortable. If Chi is home to AD it will always be in serious consideration to his career so these kids broadcasting an indifference to Chi is just silly talk to fill up the moment. They are paid to sell stupidity and they do it very well.
