still doesn't feel real!
Just saw this. I am in Europe so I have missed all the excitement. I am definitely pumped and believe this plus duh on and Meeks put us over the top. I still can't believe we got to keep MWP which I believe is equally as important.
So yeah it should be fun again next year.
I like it a lot. Nash has kept good care of his body, and I think he'll be able to keep it up in a Laker uniform. But he's still 38 years old. I think it's very important for the Lakers to keep him at 28-30 minutes per game.
I don't know if this is enough to get the team over the hump. I hope they don't stand pat and think this is enough. they should be trying harder than ever now to land Howard, imo. I like Bynum as much as the next guy, but his health can't be trusted long term. Nash-Bryant-Gasol-Howard is enough to get to the finals, imo. OKC won't be able to do anything about that.
He'll make our bigs look great, and it'll make things easier on Kobe. i just don't hope that we stand pat now. we need to fill out the team properly so kobe, nash and pau don't drain their legs in the regular season. this team will have to go easy on the minutes, and brown did a horrible job of managing kobes minutes later year. what do you think man?
I would do Pau nf Andrew if Anderson came back with Dwight actually. Hell Jrich intrigues me was a beast with Nash
Love Nash and would move one for Dwight and the other for pieces. I'd open the pain for Kobe to post up and cut away from the ball without congestion. Nash likes to run wheel routes and hit shooters and cutters. Kobe is a triple threat beast when he can just attack. I'd truly like Dwight who is mobile and athletic for Amdrew and 2-3 guys who can provide spacing and cutting for Pau.
If we didn't just f toronto I would take Pau for Bargani as i feel he fits perfect and is cheaper
yes sir. I started it a few days ago. Feel free to comment on what you think.
I had that deal originally, plus Bynum -> Howard, as my ideal trade scenario. However, I haven't been liking Williams' body language lately, even during his last few months as a Jazz. I'd still do the trade though.
Also, I have a feeling that Nash will get traded soon, although I'm not sure if the Suns would be willing to deal with us. And I don't know what they will be looking for in return. Ebanks + a draft pick + TPE ?
Although, if we get Howard for Bynum, and we keep Gasol, I don't think we should be in any rush to deal Pau, as the trio of Kobe+Pau+Dwight is still formidable, although Pau's stock is dropping as we speak.
Armin is doing well, he's gotten really busy lately so he doesn't have time to post. I'm trying to convince him to come back but to no avail. He says maybe soon
It looks like we agree with our points
I want to see how this team fares after about 20, roughly a third of the season, before making any sort of conclusive judgment about this team. This is still basically preseason for this team, especially with the new adjustments as Bynum comes back. We were balling against Utah and New York because our guys started to click with one another. Now with Bynum back we are set a couple of notches back and have to work forward again.
Of course, if Orlando were to offer Howard for Bynum straight up [ plus change, of course ] anytime soon, I don't think Mitch [ or Jim ] should hesitate because Bynum's knees are that big of a concern. Pau should be moved for a PG [ a young one hopefully ], since KB has at most 3 years left [ and that's being generous ], and after that it's gonna be Dwight by himself, and that's not going to be enough.
