Are we gonna' do ANYTHING? We can pick up a solid player with this no? It's not like we can't fill any more needs or help.


let it expire, get cap relief.

I cant believe we traded Sasha AND a 1st rounder for Joe Smith who never played and this exception and we're gonna let this exception expire too. WTF is going on?

Calm down its better to let it expire. Sasha is garbage and that 1st round probably won't amount to anything.

This is just straight up [expletive]ed up.

Fisher is our starting pointgaurd? Seriously? I didn't know whatever happened to Jerry Buss [expletive]ing blind to our biggest need.

Nobody with even a hint of sanity can be satisfied with this roster. We got swept out of the [expletive]ing second round and now we regress? Look I love Josh McRoberts as much as the next guy but he is by no means the answer to [expletive].

Kobe's not getting any younger. I honestly don't know if Fisher can get much older. Everytime Bynum [expletive]ing jumps it's like rolling a die on what's going to happen with his knee.

Things need to be straightened out. And fast.

I understand that, but I can't honestly believe that the Lakers were going into this season thinking Chris Paul or bust. They are the richest team in the NBA, letting this TPE expire for clearing cap space is like Bill Gates buying a recycled computer to cut down on costs.

Don't know why no one listens to me. I said yesterday that it expires tomorrow.

But noooooo, everyone rather freak out and stress out over stupid stuff.

^ So in other words, by you're statement, you're saying & sounding pretty confident that at some point tomorrow this will end up being used after all is that correct?

Either we use it tomorrow or let it expire for some cap relief. The LO trade exception will be more important to us in landing a quality PF.

Kobe said this today


"I don't expect this to be a situation like it was in 2005 when they said, 'You know what? We're just going to cut payroll, we're just going to cut everything and not contend for a championship,'" Bryant said. "I don't expect that to be the case. I expect them to still try to be aggressive and make moves to build a championship team and if that's the case, I'll stand out of their way and let them do what they do."

If they gonna nickel and dime and watch every penny without addressing glaring needs, yea we might have a small issue.

Its not about Sasha, its his contract, it was expiring, it was a big fat contract we gave it up easily for a player who rarely played and gave up a 1st round pick too. Fail. Just gotta use al lthe tools you have, we still dont have a decent backup SG and a backup Center

Considering we need some depth in our front court, I wouldnt be surprised. That TPE from the Odom trade is what's going to bring us a quality player
