What Pau trade?
Lakers picked up Troy Murphy, eh, not bad I guess. If he can just get back to the way he was playing a couple of seasons back. Dude was a sleeper in fantasy league back when he was with the Pacers. Can shoot the 3's, was a 13/10 guy, has length. Good back-up with McRoberts in the frontcourt, makes for good depth with the bigs in case someone gets hurt.
that's an interesting pick-up. he's a guy whose always hurt the lakers. at a certain point, maybe (just maybe) three superstars on a team is enough and what you need is role players who can do the basic things ... defend the pick and roll, offensive rebound, hit the open jump shot.. damn i wish we had a point guard, though.
It is a pretty good pick-up, if he gets back into form. I still wish Odom hadn't babied up and was still on the team. I still think he's worth all those other guys they've signed combined. I also wish they could have kept Shannon Brown. We really do need another PG, but I hope it isn't Baron Davis. Right now, I would guess these 14 + 1 other guy will form the Lakers' roster, barring other trades. But with only 12 allowed to be active, are they going to pay Luke $5.7M this year, not to sit on bench but to sit in the stands all year??? This team is looking pretty thin. PG: Derek Fisher; Steve Blake SG: Kobe Bryant; Gerald Green SF: Matt Barnes; Metta World Peace; Devin Ebanks; Jason Kapono; Luke Walton PF: Pau Gasol; Josh McRoberts; Troy Murphy; Derrick Caracter C: Andrew Bynum; Pau Gasol; Troy Murphy; Josh McRoberts The only unrestricted FA PGs are Carlos Arroyo, Marcus Banks, Earl Boykins, Antonio Daniels, Baron Davis, Pooh Jeter, Ronnie Price, Ben Uzoh....pretty slim pickings.
You forgot Arenas.
And Kapono can play SG too.
Completely forgot Arenas. I don't think he'd be good on the Lakers though. It looks like Phoenix signed Ronnie Price, so the PG list is even shorter.
The Timberwolves are looking pretty good.
Uh- are you counting Bynum amongst the superstars?
well you Kobe fanatics have a silver lining from this divorce thing...now that she's taking all his money he'll have to prolong his career to earn it back
I dunno. Tiger hasn't done too well.
^thanks for that
that was a good article about the CP3 trade. if it's true, it depresses me that Chauncey was this close to being on the Heat. he would have been perfect.
Baron Davis signs with Knicks and the Lakers might pick up Gilbert Arenas:
He might be worth a gamble for the veteran's minimum.
