another ronnie?

no thanks...

why wouldn't we need another ronnie? vlad / mihm can hardly be called enforcers, and that's who we have left backing Bynum and Odom.

Wow, I just found this on Real GM.

Ronny is 6-10 250 born Jan 13, 1983, Josh is 6-9 240 born Jan 25, 1983.

The numbers Ronny-- 18.7 mpg, 6.6 pts, 3.9 reb, 1.4 blk, 47.4 fg% and 75.3 ft%

Josh's numbers--19.2 mpg, 5.5 pts, 5.2 reb, .36 blk, .460 fg% and 72.4 ft%...


They're so similar and they even have the same number and hair style.

All he needs now is dance lessons! Not a bad pickup. We can't really trust mihm and mbenga to back up our bigs.

hopefully he has the heart and energy Ronny had.

"The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure.
The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences,
and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon,
for each day to have a new and different sun."

So I'm guessing that means we won't be getting Zo?

Unfortunately.

A writer on the LA Times Blog guessed that it's a one year guaranteed contract for the league minimum. That was just his guess though (I'd guess it was something like that as well) but nothing is known yet.

We just upgraded rebounding at our backup 4 position. This is a great low risk high reward move. The kind we have dreamed for Mitch to make and he is making them now.
Gooden>> Lamar Odom. Mo Williams>> Ray Allen>> Gasol. Nene= Gasol.

Eh MDI....useless no. We had to see it coming, we need to replace Ronny before getting another BIG, now the 'original(replaced)' is done, we can go for enhancements now.
