The lakers don't look like they will make the playoffs how should they start the Rebuilding process ? FYI the suns have their first round pick this year.

Shedding salary and signing the big names :shrug:

When you think of what guys like Metta, Kobe, Nash, Dwight and Pau are making...

I never liked how they traded away they young Potential guys or they let them walk because they wanted a slight pay Increase.

Fire dantoni.
Sign some decent
defensive PG for one year Mle money.

Sign back dwight.

Wait the year.


See how everone but dwight and nash expire.

Go chase the big name F.A .

Proceed to win title again.

Suns fan here, so obviously I'm rooting for the Lakers to miss the playoffs so my Suns get their pick (from the Nash trade), but the way DAL and UTA are playing, it seems like LA will still make the playoffs, even with their struggles.

how ironic though, IF the Suns get their pick and one of the reason is the poor play of Nash, the most revered Sun of all time :)

If you lose Dwight you probably should rebuild if not build around him.

Next year they will be paying:

Kobe - $30.5M
Gasol - $19.3M
Nash - $9.3M

They won't rebuild via trade because given their productivity those are some of the worst contracts in the NBA.

2014/15:
Only Nash in the books - $9.7M --> they can start rebuilding but this contract still hurts them

After that, they'll be fine. They are a sexy team, and most platers would like to play there.

They probably should do a competitive rebuild. They still have a pick next season. So try to offload Nash and Pau this offseason for whatever you get.
If you retain Howard, then play out next season and if you miss the post season, you at least get a lotto pick in a supposedly deep draft.
Then try for Lebron and Kevin Love in the following years.

Resign Howard
Hope kobe will take a secondary role as he is getting older
Get a new coach
and most import of all, hope they all stay healthy.

Hey dumdum a name that is most fitting for you both literally and figuratively being you are a sucker. How bout you pick a team to be a fan of and stay there. You are one of the biggest trolls on here. You are pathetic enough to constantly talk all about a team you hate all the time. Why? Do you like the attention? Are you bored? Do you have a job? Why do you have some ugly *** Kobe Adidas shoes as your sig? Do you think that really bothers laker fans? Do you think constantly talking **** about the lakers makes you have friends on here? Do you live at home in your parents basement? Hopefully these questions will take you some time to answer so that you can stop trolling the nba boards for a while. I'm giving you some attention which you want so take your time answer the questions.

He mad.

Lol there really should be an age limit for posting on this site.

Your little diatribes only serve to show you take the internet waaaay too seriously. My advice: graduate high school, get away from the computer for a few months, travel, accomplish something, and I guarantee you'll have a new lease on life ... or at the very least you won't be conducting yourself in such embarrassing fashion on the interwebz.

You are very welcome.

Speaking of English lessons, it's laughable that you are trying to give me one, what with your elementary school errors, fragment sentences, run-on sentences and poor punctuation. Your command of language is poor, very poor, but I'll allow it since you still have a few more semesters until you receive your GED.

Is English your first language?

This is all, ever. Sorry I don't use proper punctuation on PSD or check for fragmented sentences. I do know my sentences run like a train, but on here I don't care. It means I'm lazy on my proper writing skills here. Natural intellect is shown on here by no misspellings or ever saying ignorant comments like, "he mad." See I'm using proper punctuation and all for you right now. I received my GED yesterday and even then I still know not to say ignorant statements like, " he mad." See how I did that Ms Winfrey. Sorry I just can't respond to you anymore. I see the picture, the duct taped mouth, and all I hear in my head is, "he mad."

Oh sure, the whole "I'm just lazy, honest!" excuse for why you respond like a middle-school student :rolleyes: Thank you using proper grammar and punctuation, which just asserts and confirms I struck a nerve with you. All that just for me? How sweet, albeit very pathetic :laugh2:

This is clearly your first time on the internet, not including downloading of the thousands of pornographic jpeg files that are probably currently on your computer.

I asked a question if you can't answer it pray to #24. those sneakers are my sig because they are the worst kicks in all time and kobe took the money and put them on his feet. definition of a sellout. I it's not about him it's about the Lakers moving on from all this hate and misery.

It's not like this team is far off from contending.

One of the key issues this season has been health. Obviously with Nash being as old as he is, they want a good back-up PG (Calderon may be had for the MLE in the offseason).


The other key factor is coaching. 'Antoni is simply not doing a very good job.

Kobe is still an elite SG, and he seems to be willing to facilitate.

Dwight, even though he is still recovering from the back injury, is still the best C in the game.

Gasol has been hurt and how the team is being run is impacting how he impacts the game in a negative way.

MWP is starting to show age.

If they kept this current roster in tact, and had a healthy roster next season, with Gasol and Dwight starting and Earl, Jamison and Hill coming off the bench, that would be a great front court rotation considering how well Earl has been playing. On the wing they'd have Kobe and MWP. MWP is still a solid defender, though I expect they could potentially make an upgrade at SF, or add some depth on the wing (a guy that can play SF and SG). Kobe is not going to be outplayed most nights by whoever he is playing against, and Meeks is a decent back-up. Nash is going to need a back up that can split minutes with him, and hopefully the Lakers can get that done with the MLE.

With a new and qualified coach and a healthy roster next season, so long as the Lakers can sign Howard back, they will be contenders.

If Dwight does no re-sign, they are fawked. Still a playoff team, but not a contender, and they will have to look at bringing in somebody via free agency (maybe Kaman) that can hold the fort down with respectable numbers.

I don't see Howard resigning and I'm beginning to think that Kobe might call it quits after this season ( to give his body a full year to recover ).

I see the Lakers being bottom feeders ( stating this because for the Laker fan base and franchise, it's title or bust ) until the 2014 free agency begins (please Laker fans, Howard is not going to waste more years off of his career, waiting until the Lakers have cap space), then they grab two above average players & build around them.

Lakers will be back on top of the west by 2016, they should be able to win a title by 2020 (The league wont let that franchise stay down for too long).

This is not happening. Your conspiracy theories are bad enough to be honest but this even tops that.

1. Howard probably will re-sign, unless there is some major fallout/collapse between him and Kobe.

2. Kobe is NOT taking any time off, especially not the entire season willingly.

3. LA cannot get rid of D'Antoni and pay him, Mike Brown AND another coach. They are stuck with D'Antoni, like it or not.

4. I like the Calderon idea. Next season I think LA will be a decent team, if they're healthy. They won't bottom out but I can see them being mediocre until the next major free agent season after 2014, because LeBron, Wade nor Melo will be in purple and gold. Kevin Love, maybe.

Why does it have to be a major fallout? The guy was traded their, he owes noting to that franchise; the guy they traded away for him(bynum) didn't even play a single minute this season... They Lakers lost noting!

Howard can walk away with a clear conscious.




2. Kobe is NOT taking any time off, especially not the entire season willingly.

You are most likely right about this, but I can still see it going the other way too.
