    With Dwight, LA can sign 2 max players next year+Kobe. W/o Dwight, 3 max players+Kobe

    This Ken Berger article is giving me the goosebumps

    Thing is; there are only 2 playes worthy of max next Summer: Lebron and 'Melo. I'm not counting RFAs that will probably have offers matched by teams holding their rights.

    Anyhow; the cap in 2014 is expected to be $60M. If Nash is stretch waived; they'd have about $56.7M available. That would be about $36M available if Dwight is there.

    Thread title makes me laugh because it's simple math. Dwight is the 3rd max contract, so obviously without him they can sign 3 plus Kobe

    Don't see what Dwight isn't understanding about this franchise.

    Dwight + Kobe on the cheap + another max player + role guys= championship roster

    The article fails to mention how this would be done financially.

    With the salary cap at $60 mil: Dwight $20 mil + Melo $20 mil + Lebron $20 mil
    That is the whole cap right there. Does Kobe re-sign for the MLE and the rest of the roster is filled out with minimum contracts?

    I would rather have Lebron, Dwight, Kobe and use the rest of the money on some role players. Melo is overrated anyway.

    We don't need Melo if we have LeBron, Dwight and Kobe. Plus, Melo is a bigger ball hog than Kobe in 05 when he averaged 35 a game

    I'd say there is about a 0.0000045 chance we get Lebron... More likely to get melo

    Funny thing is 'Melo would be fantastic in the triangle. Kobe initiator and 'Melo pinch post.

    THIS IS WHAT I'VE BEEN SAYING. The media is so ******** making it seem like Lakers are such a train wreck with no future. One bad year and then we're back on top. The Rockets have bad contracts that won't get them a max player but we'll have enough to sign 2 more + kobe. Why is the media so down on us?
