again, we all believe that Lowry is the better basketball player.
**** calderon. even if we traded Lowry for whatever, Calderon isn't leading this group hapless players to the playoffs.
he's had 6-7 years to do. enough of this ********.
While I dont agree with the idea of trading Lowry over Calderon... If we are going to do it what about the possibility of acquiring Paul Millsap?
Utah is reportedly looking to trade one of Millsap or Jefferson for a PG with Kanter/Favours waiting in the wings. A trade of Lowry and Ed Davis for Millsap could benefit both teams and would work under the cap.
I'd rather keep Davis than trade for Millsap...
and there's no way ATL trades Horford. Jsmoove is most likely leaving so there's no point in trading Horford...
next year, if Calderon resigns and is still our starting PG, i have no faith in Calderon leading us near being even a strong playoff contender. some other leader is going to have to appear from the ranks to get this sad franchise to the next steps.
Lowry and Davis is never going to net Teague and Horford, no offense. If the issues off the court are true, then it's a foregone conclusion he won't resign and you must trade KL sooner rather than later. Atlanta could offer up Teague and a 1st for Lowry otherwise we may not be the best trading partners.
Please not Pau. I thought these rumors about him coming here were over.
S E A N....M A Y N E
Pau Gasol would be probably in the top 5 best/most accomplished players we've ever had within the organization that can still produce. Remember what Oakley & Davis did for this team in turning it into a "winner". Pau would bring championship experience and a high basketball IQ to this team.
That team has pretty great potential if you ask me. Give them the rest of the season to gell and no playoffs so Pau can rest his knees. Combine that with the fact that we have the Lakers ex head trainer in Alex Mckechnie who took care of Pau before I don't see why this would be a negative.
