Lopez might not be a big name player, but he's been performing exceptionally well this season.
19/7 with 2.3 bpg in just 29mpg.
He's also only 24.
If all signs point to Dwight being the problem, I see no reason to not trade for Brook Lopez. Stats point to Dwight being the culprit. His attitude during games point to him being the culprit. His interviews and calling out his teammates point to him being the culprit.
Look at what he did to Orlando. SVG was one of the best coaches in the NBA and he got him fired. Then, he left Orlando after all of the drama he caused.
In short, **** Dwight.
I'm not even saying that it's definite he's the problem. I'm just interested in seeing how we do during the games so we get more insight on what our problem exactly is.
Trade Dwight for pierce and rondo

I just hate how obvious it is that Dantoni small ball is so wrong for this team. Bickerstaff with Kobe and Nash figuring out any final or special plays would have been much better.
The guy averages 5 assists a game.
Duhon, Morris, Sacre, Clark, Ebanks are all D-League players.
They should not be on our roster. That's FIVE productive roster spots we are wasting.
Thankfully, Duhon has a buyout clause for next year and the other 4 come off contract.
We can still turn things around for next year. I say we trade Pau for defensive role players and start getting our chemistry together for next year.

I am dumbfounded.
We are a terrible team.
If Gasol can come back right away - soon enough to have some games w/out Dwight - and the game results bear out what appears in the numbers (that the Lakers w/ Gasol & w/out Howard are better than the Lakers w/ Howard & w/out Gasol) maybe it gives the front office some leverage to rationalize keeping Gasol and (*gasp*) contemplating a Howard sign 'n' trade. I think, as much as anything, trading Howard is just too ballsy a move for them to even consider right now. An epic failure of a season, with a stretch of good games from a Howard-less team, could possibly change that.This at least allows us some insight. We get to watch games without Dwight and Gasol. Then with Gasol and without Dwight.
But highly unlikely.
