Being a GSW fan, you'll see soon enough why. Dude couldn't even catch an alley-oop to save his life.

Srsly. Throw some money West's way, throw some money at Nene. throw it at any decent player. If you have to get to the min, fine, but sheesh. Hopefully the expiring contract will be worth something and that is why they did it.
I hope they re-sign Reggie Williams.

Yeah, I saw that interview too. I really hope something big is about to happen.

That Kwame signing is a joke.
Really surprised Jerry West OK'd that one.

F Josh McRoberts to sign two-year deal using mini mid-level exception with @lakers, source tells Y! Avg 7.2 pts, 6.2 rbs w/Indy last season.
Wow. The Lakers are on a ROLL!!
First, they sign Kapono! rolleyes.gif
Then, they get rid rid of Odom! rolleyes.gif
Then, they sign GG! rolleyes.gif
Then, they sign McRoberts! rolleyes.gif

The only mistake Mitch has made so far is in not signing VladRad....rolleyes.gif

And i think McRoberts is pretty good value for the mini-midlevel.
Milsap would be OK. Kapono - Odom + GG + McRoberts = no.

Hell, I'd rather have Milsap + Glen Rice at this point....

McRoberts actually sounds like a quality pick up.

Come on. Has Josh McRoberts EVER been relevant in the NBA?

If the Lakers don't sign a gamer like Howard, where are the they now?
Lamar > gone. Shannon > gone. 2 excellent, fast, exciting players, to rivals no less.
Instead > in are Kapono, Green, McRoberts + we still have Metta Weirdo Artest and Frozen Hand Luke....

The Lakers are NOT better right now, not by a long shot.

Honestly I don't know him that well. He obviously is not a superstar but from what I've read he is very much a quality player that can give good hard min. score a little, play D and do what you ask him to, the type that you NEED if you want to win championships.

Is he a sure ticket to the finals? No, of course not. Nor is he a equal replacement for Odom. But I think people get too caught up in the superstar hype and tend to ignore the fact that winning teams always need these types of players on them.

I agree with you. I also agree that the Lakers need more bench power.
All I'm saying is if the Lakers don't add anyone else, they were probably better off keeping Lamar than adding Kapono/Green/McRoberts.
If they can add a tough like Milsap, Varejao, someone like that, maybe they'll be OK; but they still won't be chip material imo.
To be real contenders, they need to add Howard first, add a decent PG, and then dump Artest, who I think is really a liability and will be more one with Lamar gone.

Actually, to be real contenders they need to dump Jim Buss above all else.

to be honest, i didn't mind odom getting traded (though i would have liked to see them get back more than a box of pop tarts for him.) the problem with having odom, pau, and bynum was that you could only play two of them at a time. and i think odom eating away bynum's playing time has kind of stunted bynum's development (well, that and his glass knees.)

 

so ideally, this opens up some room for bynum to reach somewhere close to his potential. and if that happens before his knees fall apart again, maybe they can flip him for dwight (mostly wishful thinking.)

also, call me crazy, but i think artest is salvageable. in two years, i don't think he ever understood the triangle. 

post #4798 of 27197
bynum's knee as bad as yao ming's foot?
post #4799 of 27197

i wouldn't say that, though i guess only time will tell. greg oden seems to be more in ming territory than bynum.
