I wonder where everyone gets the idea we can land younger guys for Pau if those younger guys haven't requested a trade to the Lakers.


well considering about 90% of the league doesn't have a legitimate post player nothing is out of the realm of possibility for pau. pau is only 32 and bigs like pau last.

a team like chicago with no bigs may be willing, may not. they have no post players. boozer needs to be spoonfed, and noah as well. pau is a rare big that can create for himself and others, he's 7 foot. if you're on the cusp of contending, then pau is very attractive

We would have to take a gamble on a young player for that to happen

What happens when the game slows down in the post season?


Kobe says hello.
Pau says ciao.
Dwight says what up?

Calling it right now:

Andrew Wiggins will be better than LeBron James.

Kurt Rambis on ESPN

The reports that Jackson had part ownership, travel and other "unusual" demands among others is categorically and absolutely false. Phil had decided he wanted the job and his agent was flying to Los Angeles today to work out the details. The Jackson camp is dumbfounded by what's transpired.


If Kurt isn't lying, then just wow. How sad.

Why is the relationship shaky between Jim and Phil:

Plain and simple, how would you want to hire, overpay, and compensate for a man's every desire as he dates your sister?

Imagine an strange child who's punching you and your expecting to beat that if you will get serious

If you're saying we can't post up any of those guys in half-court sets during the playoffs, I disagree. Not only will we be able to go to the P&R anytime we want, we can always give the ball to these 3 (with Dwight preferably getting deep post position first) and let them go to work.

We will be ok during the playoffs. We have too much talent and too good of a PG to not find a way to make it work.

LOL when you say Pau is only 32 you make him sound young and attractive.

Not trying to clown, it just comes off that way.

I haven't heard about anyone being interested in Pau outside of Minnesota and they didn't wanna give us much in return, so what makes these other teams willing to pull the trigger and give us something we need?

Pau was a steal, smart teams are gonna want to rob us for him the same way Mitch robbed the Griz for him,

Unless a young talented guy comes forth and says "hey, wanna get traded to the Lakes" I hardly see
another CP3 like trade in the works but then again you never know with Mitch lol

Being that Rambis was part of getting the job I'm gonna guess he's lying.

We are in win now mode, but you may be right, if the Lakers are willing to gamble on D'Antoni I dont see why not.

The problem is making the salaries work though no?

Young guys salary don't match up with Pau's.

I don't think D'antoni will run PnR all the time like he did back in 06 with nash when you have talent like Kobe and Gasol , he should/must figure out an offense that can capitalize all four .. Its tough for him but once he figure things out it will result a chip or at least increases our chances .. Now Defense is another thing !

You guys keep forgeting Atlanta wanted Pau for Smith straight up, but we wanted to much.

Lifes a gamble folks. Who knows if you cross the road tonight that you will get hit by a car? You just try your best to make smart choices that will work for you. I doubt that Jerry Buss makes decisions out of his ass.

Agreed. The Princeton nor the Triangle will utilize all four of them correctly.
