Gay is perfect for this system. He can defend, shoot, and play with athleticism. He is also consistent. Athleticism doesn't only mean dunking. We don't need to fix our offense in the first place... If you really think offense is our biggest problem you have no right in saying that I don't know much about basketball. We can fix bench production from a different approach. Gay will fit this team perfectly but getting him is highly unrealistic. I wouldn't be shocked if Mitch somehow came up with him however.

Mike D'Antoni is GARBAGE.

Starting to not care about the Pau trade, if we keep losing we should just save him till next year.

nash really plays well with players who cut. ilyasova would be great for this team, he cuts and hits 3s, rebounds well. plus udrih would come over too, the 2nd unit sucks because no1 can create off the dribble. do it mitch

"The West aint close, now that the LAL got Dwight, who gon stop him on OKC!????" - Chris Webber (nba tv -August)


Big 4s are OVERRATED. you think Nash/Kobe/Dwight cant carry the whole Offensive load!?

Gay doesn't play defense. He's actually a below-average defender who is lucky to have Marc Gasol standing behind him.

David Stern [expletive]ed the Lakers organization big time with that veto.. We would've been so good right now.

Dwight Howard would be standing behind him this time so I'm guessing that wouldn't change =p

Dwight is also standing behind Steve Nash, Jodie Meeks and Antawn Jamison, who are horrific defenders. Marc Gasol doesn't have it that bad in Memphis, and he's 100%.

Chris Paul? One of the most competitive players in the NBA? Someone who can make a team better?

No Pau Gasol?
 

Trade for Austin Rivers, say, Hill & Johnson.

But if we're going by starting lineups

It would be

Nash
Gay
Kobe
Metta/Hill
Howard

Would probably be the lineup we see. So it wouldn't be like he'd be out there with Meeks and Jamison that often.

Rudy would fit alright. All running and gunning.... But no defense. Just what D'antoni wants.
This is one tough as season.. I haven't seen this since Cedric Ceballos, Nick Van Exel and Eddie Jones were Lakers. Damn

Chris Paul also actually plays defense and isn't afraid to score. I am not saying Nash can't take over, but there are times where he needs to be selfish and shoot the ball. He is the best shooter on the team. Also, Paul is young and can be our future point guard and he always wanted to play with Dwight.

KOBE. #VINO. BRYANT.

Howard would be out there more than he is right now, because we wouldn't have Gasol playing center anymore.

We'd have to get a productive PF out of the deal as well, and I doubt that would happen for just Gasol, if we're landing Gay.

Yeah a productive PF AND Gay would be hard to come by.

The only thing I could think of was if we did a three way deal with Minnesota and we gave them Gasol and got Williams, and Memphis sent us Gay while taking Kirilenko from Minnesota. But I don't see that happening.
