    I really felt that this would boost his confidence since he missed soo many 3 pointers on wed.

  • MILO

    this guy should be traded along with fluke for Artest

  • mikedeezy2k8

    man he has some insane passing skills, lets get him to develop fast like bynum did

  • Keep Odom

    could this mean that the Lakers are trying to clear up a roster spot to make and addition? The trade deadline isn’t for another couple of days…..hmmm sure makes you wonder.

    Perhaps the Lakers are going to pursue Kidd now that they know the Dallas trade is about to fall through.

    Definitely should be an interesting next week or so.


    Me think a trade is coming soon and the fact that Kobe is hurt.Trade C.Karl and Mihm for JJ Reddick or Gerald Green/Antoine Walker(at least that trade worked espn)OR JUST GET JO OR ARTEST!
