Contrary to what about about half a dozen different credible Laker writers with excellent track records and inside sources have all independently observed over the past several years. THEY'RE the one's talking out of their ***, huh? It was Jim Buss' genius that brought Jackson back, and then he proceeded to not talk to him for over a year?
All right. Well, we know where we stand.
I am tired of people pretending that today's Pau is the same Pau from three years ago. The reason why he hasn't been traded yet is because all other teams recognize this simple fact. As far as I am concerned, Pau should have been traded when he laid down in the playoff because of a woman. And if it wasn't because of a woman, it was because of an equally lame girly dispute with Kobe. Whatever the reason, management should have foreseen the disaster ahead, just like they did with Odom, and traded him.
Who should they trade him for? Who ever fits this offense!!! Either a good shooting 4, or simply a scrapper who hustles every time down the floor. That's what this offense needs and that's what Gasol is not giving them. We won three championships with so-so power forwards during the Shaq-Kobe era. We should be able to get someone better than so-so for Gasol. Once that is done, and we stop having Chucky Atkins/Smush Parker part II, we should do much, much, much better.
I blame Chac's prediction contest.
