Martin is using us as leverage which is ridiculous because anyone with a brain can see we have no room at the 4 or 5

He's good but the only reason to get him would be if we were trading away hill in a howard trade package but I dont think we can even do that for a while cuz we just signed him. To me it sounds like K-Mart is just trying to get a better deal from the nets.

Lakers were interested in signing K-Mart last year. I wonder if they're still interested in signing him.

I bet K Mart's just using us as leverage. Unless we get rid of Mcbob, forget it.

You must be joking. Heck all your posts are jokes.


Maybe Kevin, not Kenyon


:facepalm:


LOL if you guys really believe Jamison is going to be that great for us when he shot terrible last season while playing little to no defense???

do you know how productive Kenyon would be with steve nash running pick and roll? and he is still a solid defender on pick and roll!!! this is a player we need more than another offensive threat idk why everybody is so obsessed with offense when we really NEED defense.. smh

We were dead last in bench production. Jamison provides us his versatility with his perimeter shooting and he has a solid offensive game. He will have a proper adjustment with his fg percentages in our team. Kenyon is degrading, he is slow, not the same guy before. I say his defense is a tad bit better but we need quality bench production and Jamison gives us that.

Okay let's see how everything pans out when the nba season starts..... I really don't think Jamison will help us as much as everybody thinks but hey I will be happy if he does cause I want to see the Lakers win but If he doesn't it will be another one of my points that everybody disagrees until it blows up in their face so lets wait and see.. he wasn't productive with most of the shots he took so I don't think he will be productive with less touches and less shots

If acquired, Martin would probably set the hardest screens on the team...but I agree this was a negotiating tactic to get other teams to up their offers (or make an offer).

@MikeAScotto: Lakers and Knicks are both pursuing free agent power forward Kenyon Martin for the veteran minimum (Via @JaredZwerling)


WTF mitch still not done lmao!

Jared Zwerling ‏@JaredZwerling
The Lakers are pursuing Kenyon Martin. The Knicks are likely too. But will he sign for the vet min? He makes a lot of sense for both teams.

I don't see how Martin would choose the Knicks over us if the money is the same.

I don't think he'd get many minutes with us but at least he would be good insurance to have if there were any injurys
