    Management is weighing offers to see what fits best. We have time fellas. Glory isn't in the regular season. So patience is needed children...we got this.

    That would be very ironic. Like a cloud of smoke, you wake up one morning and he's gone...

    I'd still be fine if we were a .500 team. But you can't win a championship if you don't even make the playoffs.

    What's up with Kobe?

    I love the guy, but he's shooting way too much. Howard is disappearing on offense. Lakers aren't going to win that way.

    Who the best in the league? You tell me...

    Offensively, Dwight needs to be more assertive and not stand in one place all the time when he is double team.

    This team's real problem is turnovers and DEFENSE. Steve Nash isn't going to make us a better defensive team. We need to get Nate McMillan to come in as our "defensive coordinator".

    Unfortunately they won't. We never should have hired MD. We didn't have the right personel to fit his system. I know the Buss family wants to bring back showtime and hated the triangle, but we didn't have the legs or shooters to make it work and it just hurts our defense.

    Another bad coaching hire by Jim Buss. He has hired the last 3 coaches not named Phil in LA and they all have been bad decisions.

    If we're 5-5 or worse over our next 10, it's time to change things. No reason why we shouldn't win 8 of the next 12 at least.

    If we don't. It's time to pull try something different.

    Shooting too much and not getting others involved. That being said, we blow defensively. Giving up 111.6 ppg in 6 of our last 7 losses. We can't stop the other team at all

A deep playoff run should be enough to keep him around, but a first round exit won't be. I honestly don't blame him for leaving if we suck that bad. For him to leave 25 mill on the table + a big market for a smaller market just shows how much in the **** this season had been.

    Still to early I agree. But it needs to get fixed. The west is way too talented
    I don't disagree with anything you said. But you're not going to keep Howard by freaking out or making panic moves. Howard's played on dog teams before. He knows what kind of players are on the Lakers' team, and how important Nash will be over the next two or three years.

    For Howard I think the only surprise is that he's gotten healthier faster than most people thought, while other team members have gone down to injury.

    There's nothing to do but wait and be patient. If the teams stinks when it's at full strength, that's another issue. But panic isn't the solution to anything right now.

    Jordan Hill has Shown that given the minutes he is a 10 and 10 guy easily..that's why I think they trade Pau now for some defensive help...they obviously don't need offense.

    I agree. Panic moves are bad, but there's also a thin line between a panic move and being too patient.

    We have to monitor Pau's situation closely. If he isn't the same physically, we need to trade him the next day.

    Needs to take less 3 pointers and take his shots more within the flow of the offense and take quality shots. His efficency was excellent at the beginning, but now he is struggling with his shot and has been more of a volume scorer. All of this doesn't bode well for a team that is having so many issues on both ends of the floor.
