Nash.and Blake both made impacts upon returning.

Can anyone explain to me why Gaosl can't? And why he is getting a pass from some fans?
 

I've always liked Steve Blake.

Like I said b4 he was terrible b4 he got hurt so why expect anything better now while he still banged up & out of shape. Bench him & play him as D12 back up with bench

The only way we have a chance at doing anything in the post-season is if Pau somehow can be integrated into the lineup.

Right now, I put most of Pau's struggles on D'Antoni, who doesn't seem to have a clue on how to utilize two bigs in a lineup.

how can he utilize both at same time when Pau cant back his defender down & D12 cant make a post move vs any1 unless he is 3 feet away from hoop?

 

COach D needs to scrap trying to find a way to make them play together to start & finish gms. They only need to play together during 2nd quarters & beginning of 4ths. Cause right now PAus is a liability late in games on both sides of the ball.

One thing i really dont understand: why is Gasol starting? Why not let him come off the bench as the back-up 5, like he did earlier in the season with some success and then slowly work him into the line-up until his legs are back.

IMO this is another case of MDA being a complete retard. Clark is being pushed out of the lineup that won 11 of 14 post-all-star pre-kobe injury. Now he isn't seing minutes and the team have trouble finding their chemistry.

I think they should go with what they've been doing for the past month (excluding last 3 games).

Start Nash-Kobe-Metta-Clark-Dwight and then let Pau be the back-up 5 and then slowly get him up to playing 25-30 mpg.

However, like i said earlier: the only way for us to do anything in the playoffs, is if we can get a two-man game going with Pau and Dwight.

they wont make the playoffs with past 2 gm player rotations & decisions. Now MWP is hurt lets see how many gms he wont play who you move in place of him to start?

Call Indiana and work out a deal around Gasol and Granger.


I've been hoping for something like that since the summer Fido. Too bad Granger got hurt, there could have been some traction there. Even if Indy wasn't interested in Gasol, a 3rd team could have easily gotten involved, like the T Wolves.

If we trade Pau its gonna be for picks and small contract players...we owe $25 mil for Dwight, $30 mil for Kobe, thats $55 mil already taken up in capspace we're gonna be looking to drop salary

Well, Granger doesn't make as much as Pau. The Lakers can also trade Nash for less salary and amnesty Metta.

 

I think the Lakers will find a creative way to cut salary if they really need to and still try to compete.

I doubt they have use for Granger's expiring since they're already under the cap next season. Whatever the player(s), I think the Lakers can find a creative way to do things to improve the team.

 

If the Lakers are smart, they should try to trade Nash. His decent production is outweighed by his lack of defense. I think he's a net negative for this team since we can't hide his defense at all. But, a team that has great team defense could hide those deficiencies and get his efficient offensive production.

I don't think Dwight will have a salary of 25mil, probably more around the 19-21 range

Nash needs to go just as much or more than Pau! Somehow John Wall should be on the radar with Ariza or a three that can knock down shots and defend
