Would Paul be getting MVP talk if he were a Laker? He’s right where he belongs.
I don't think that matters to Paul.

I’ve actually thought about this...if he leaves it’s going to be to the Lakers I’d assume...the only way for him to get paid and go there would be in a S&T for Schroeder...
Not necessarily. Paul could opt-out and just sign with the Lakers. Obviously the Lakers would need to create cap space, but LeGM has a history of pulling stuff like that.
Not sure they can find a team willing to take on enough salary to sign him without taking anything back. If he opts out, it has to be because he is getting a 3 year deal worth a lot more than the 45 he is owed.
I agree it wouldn't be easy to pull off, but it still makes me nervous that the possibility is there. He wouldn't sign for the minimum or something, but how much would he be willing to forego for a chance to play with his buddy and be a title favorite? He's made a ton of money already..
I think the main motivation to go to LA would be to be able to live with his family during the season.

Yeah, they got the finished Nash and we got the MVP Nash. I am not going to talk about Paul maybe going to the Lakers in the off season on the game day thread of our first playoff game in a decade and against the Lakers. That’s sacrilegious and bad luck for sure.
