10 things that could derail the Lakers

Interesting to see, some could be true, others obviously not so true.


O.C. Register: Last season the Lakers took on all-comers and came away with the NBA trophy. Can they do that again, or will extenuating circumstances and the Celtics or Cavaliers be too much for them to handle this season?

    Whether they win it all this season or not, the Lakers need to tweak the roster next year. Re-sign Farmar in the off season and trade him and Bynum to New Jersey for Devin Harris and Brooke Lopez. Bynum goes back to his hometown to be the man in the middle and New Jersey opens up the starting point guard spot for John Wall. Lakers plug Devin into the starting line-up and that solves our PG issue. Acquiring Brook Lopez helps the bench. Lamar slides to starting PF and Gasol to center. Resign Fisher for 2 years at no more than 2.5 million a year to come off the bench and sometimes close out games because, hey, the guys clutch come playoff time. Shannon opts out looking for a bigger payday and we let him walk because why? He’s not a MLE player and we already got too many overpaid guards and players on the roster already that don’t deserve the money. Try and sign Raja Bell who’s an URFA in the offseason to backup Kobe. Use Sasha’s expiring contract for a good shooting SF or an athletic PF to come off the bench. A swap with Goldenstate for Ronny will make me happy! Complain about Luke Walton and his contract for another year because realistically, he’s here until his contract expires. No one wants him! WFASE = worst free agent signing ever! Let Josh Powell go because we already got Mbenga as insurance for a big man. Sign a young insurance guard instead for under a million. Done! Lakersnation creators, “Please forward this blog to Mitch Kupchak!” Drake Ramoray signing off! Goodnite!

      I should be given my own column on this site. My words are so strong and opinionated I can even make myself believe this can happen!

      • Steve Avery

        Anything’s better than my articles!

      • Marwan Marzina

        Theres nothing wrong with Steve’s articles. Its just the format of his are different to Anna’s and people prefer Anna’s more. Doesn’t mean that Steve’s are garbage either.
        Just keep up the great work Steve :)

    imagine having this:
    starters:
    pg/ devin harris
    sg/ kobe bryant
    sf/ ron artest
    pf/ pau gasol
    c/ brook lopez…………. or have lamar start and be the pf and let pau be center….. the lakers wouldnt show a weakness anywhere.

  • willmo

    I like Brook Lopez but let’s be real, this trade will never happen and Devin Harris is not a Phil Jackson type PG and he is always hurt, look up his games played the last 2 yrs and plus the lakers need a tough defender at that position. All we can do is stick with what we have for the next 3 months. The schedule is not as rough as let’s say Denver’s and we don’t have any major injuries, so it’s time to get it going.

    Are Kobe and Pau really fighting each other or is it just saying if that happens?
