I could realistically see the Lakers giving Gasol a 3 year, 25 million deal. Somewhere in that range.

I don't see that team making the playoffs.

Really?

 

I think if you added a healthy Kobe to this year's team, they would have won about 10 more games. Add Lowry - one of the best two-way PGs in the league - Ariza, who's an elite defender/3pt shooter - a defensive-minded big, like Gordon or Vonleh and then get a coach who knows how to play to the strength of the team and we'd be a tough team to beat. Basically, you add four defensive-minded starting caliber players, including two who could/should be all-stars (Kobe and Lowry), to our current team that only have one nba-caliber starter (Pau).

 

The thing is, if Kobe comes back like Kobe - or 90% of Kobe - then this team would be very good - perhaps not a championship contender, but very good and who knows what deal we may be able to do during the season. But if Kobe isn't coming back as Kobe, but rather a 50% shell of himself, then we wont be able to do much regardless of who we get.

 

For the record: my ideal situation is to get Wiggins, Parker, Exum or Embiid (maybe Smart), sign a B-level star, like Lowry or Ariza, and make a run at K-Love in 2015.

^ Where is that reference from? It sounds awfully familiar, but I can't grab a hold of exactly where from at the moment. Is it 'The Cable Guy' by any chance?

Once he's back, Pau Gasol wants to play alongside Chris Kaman: http://lat.ms/1liR8iY , something that hasn't been part of D'Antoni's plan.

Highly doubt MDA gives in. He's almost as stubborn as they come.

Would Oklahoma sign Gasol ?

  1. Mike D'Antoni will start Pau Gasol and Chris Kaman vs. Portland http://bit.ly/1iapceq

here's the downside though 

 

“Chris played really well. It’s something we have to look at, but it’s going to affect other people,” D’Antoni said. “We’ve had this discussion. Somebody is going to pay for it. We’ll see how it goes.”

D’Antoni declined who will become the casualty in what will mark the Lakers’ 32nd starting lineup of the season. But in recent days, he has said his reluctance to play Kaman partly entailed not wanting to reduce playing time for Robert Sacre, Ryan Kelly and Jordan Hill.

The problem is that Kelly, Sacre or Hill are going to lose minutes because of this, you could play Kelly at the 3 but then X, Wes, or Bazemore loses minutes(depending on who starts). 

Let's see the starting lineup

 

 

Marshall

Meeks
Bazemore

Kaman
Gasol

 

Bench
Bazemore

Young
Xavier
Hill

Sacre   

In this scenario, Kelly is odd man out, if we put Kelly at the 4 then Hill is left out, if we put Hill at the 5 and Kelly at the 4 then Sacre is left out.     So it's quite a conundrum.    And then when Farmar gets back?  Wow the minutes that would be cut all around.  imagine if Kobe WAS playing.

Pau Gasol says he doesn't know if it was the best idea that he played tonight. Didn't feel confident out there. Unsure if he'll play tom.

Who would you guys rather have moving forward.

Bazemore or Henry (implying that they both are paid the same amount)

bazemore he can play 3 positions and is more under control. X still has work to do but is stronger and more explosive

  1. From LAL PR: Pau Gasol has had a “severe recurrence of vertigo” and will not play tonight.

    LAL called Gasol “incapacitated in his hotel room” in SAC. He’ll fly to L.A. when able, either tonight w/t team or later commercially.

     



Pau should stay out the rest of the year, there's nothing new we can learn from him.  Sit out so Kaman, Kelly, Sacre, Hill can get minutes.
