Bottomline...Lakers can't move this kid...He's made a much better effort at adapting to D'Antoni's offense than Pau...6-9 fgs...14pts 8 rebs in 21 minutes tonight...Endless energy on the boards...solid defense...Overall Pretty impressive for a big man sub...With D12 being foul prone, Lakers need to look at other pieces to move...
True,but we need a better pg coming for NAsh and we need a better 3 behind Meta. I do not think the Lakers will hesitate t move Gasol or him if they see a good prospect at any of those positions mention before. they are going to wait to see what happen until the end of January.
if this kid isn't a dennis rodman shell i don't know what is. he's an offensive powerhouse, plays hard, and is a decent defender.
how many rings does rodman have and he at the end of his career couldn't shoot at all.
that stretch 4 could be setting screens freeing up other teammates
he may not have as much talent as pau but at least he gives 100% metta and j.hill have the PF position on lock
looks like meeks is at SG and kobe at SF
John Feinstein in a CBS Sports Minute posited that we would be better off trading DH12 than Pau. Pau is still a very decent player but he doesn't fit with Howard out there on the floor. But just think of the pieces we could get in a Howard trade. Pau would look a whole lot better if he had a run and gun PG and a SF that could stretch the floor.
You have Jordan Hill who can make the hustle plays and clean up the garbage around the rim. And with a stretch three Pau would get better isolation plays to do his thing. But actually I love this team just the way it is with Nash back. I think we're only going to get better and better with Nash back. I just have this really great feeling of hope.
