I just want to get everyone's view on what these two loses mean for the Lakers. Now I know alot of people will say this is not the time to overreact we will bounce back. Me personally I feel like this whole season has been abysmal. In my opinion I feel as if we need to blow up the roster. I know it may be harsh but I refuse to watch us fight fight and fight then get eliminated in the second round of the playoffs again. No one can blame it on a lack of practice or no preseason. We have just been horrid. Some will say well we are still a few games behind the clippers. That doesn't matter. We could be 1 game behind the clippers if the playoffs started next week we would get our @sses kicked. If we are going to lose I would rather it be because we are transitioning for the future. Give me your thoughts. MAJOR tweeks or MINOR tweeks??

We don't need to blow up the roster, that's a silly hyped up fairy tale that a "blown up" roster would help us.

We as a team are actually very close to being a deadlier team. We only need one or two adjustments. Everyone points to the "We need a distributing" PG. But honestly what we NEED is a bench center that can contribute, and a second consistent scorer on the bench unit. After that a PG will be nice but not the be all and end all.


For instance if we got Beasley for our bench, and Arenas for our 2nd bench scorer we'd be fine.

We could also get Beasley for our bench and Sessions as our PG to eventually get the starting spot after taking it from Fisher and acclimated with the team and the system. and after that point we just need a backup center and we're good.

ONE major change isn't gonna fix anything. Few minor tweaks here and there, we already are pretty close, just a few small tweaks will do the job. "blowing up" the team would cause a WHOLE bunch of new problems that can be avoided with a tweak here and there.
 

I've always liked Steve Blake.

We need a PG and a SF who can score off the bench. That's it.

Minor tweeks will do nothing but put a band aid over the true problem. This team doesn't have the athleticism to compete with the younger championship contending teams. I would trade Gasol to the rockets for exactly what they offered in Scola Martin Dragic and a 1st round pick. I would keep Scola to replace gasol and send everything else including one of our first round picks to Boston just for rondo. We won't need Bass. Espn has already reported Boston is still trying to trade rondo. I would propose to them this deal and get it done. Then our lineup would be Rondo Kobe Metta Scola Bynum. Thats what I mean by a major change that can do nothing but help. Then going into the future we have Rondo and Bynum to build around.

Maybe not so much pride haha. Leave the egos at the door. Let's just hope they don't wait till the 15th waiting on Dwight and ultimately decide to do nothing...

Blow it up! Pau & Bynum dont play well together on both sides of the ball = they have exhausted their full vlaue for Lakers. Get rid of both and get Howard and stop bullsheeting

I don't know about Howard but I posted a trade idea in the trade section that would make us contenders instantly and everyone involved is happy.

Major, I don't think we can survive a 7 game series with minor tweeks.

I think it should be major tweaks.

As much as I like Bynum, Gasol, and Kobe as a trio, our dynamic that we had in our two titles disappeared last season. I had said that when you go with a core roster for so long, it's eventually going to catch up with us and it did last year. Our size is great and everything but it's not a major factor anymore and it hasn't been since two seasons ago.

Going forward it has to be Kobe/Bynum with a very good point guard. It changes the way teams prepare for us and changes how this team plays offensively. My hope is Rondo because that's the only top pg that's available.

i think tweaks would be better; mainly a quick PG who can defend.
