CDR dropped 49/7/8/3 couple days ago .. The guy could add to the bench, worst case he wont be as bad as our bench production

CDR would get time on the court, probably over Ebanks. I don't see why we continue to believe in him. CDR is actually a better player than he is.

The only reason CDR was waived, in my opinion, was because Ebanks had the guaranteed contract, and I believe a no-trade clause (based on a technicality, just like Morris). Otherwise, if we had a choice between the two, and the ability to give one the same amount of money as the other...Douglas-Roberts would be on our roster.

But I dont know if the the Lakers wanna offer him something? I mean think of the perspective as CDR.. he did the offseason with the Lakers, then got released 3 days before tip off.. I mean how bad can you feel ? And then see an offer from the same team which just released u? Would you accept that? I dont know... (we are not talking subjective perspective that its the biggest franchise in basketball history) lets stay objective in this one..

btw. CDR wont return...i dont see that happen. uh uh...

I'm pretty sure a spot on the Lakers roster, in the city of Los Angeles, with potentially the best chances to get a ring? I don't care what happened in preseason, he wouldn't let that factor into his decision. I'm sure he realizes at this point that the NBA is a business.

50 in the D League has no bearing on what he can do in the NBA.

I can't believe that so many of you put so much stock in D-League stats and apply it to the NBA.

Obviously we know 50 in the D league is not gonna translate to being dominant in the NBA, but that can translate to being serviceable(unlike everyone on our bench besides Hill) look at all the guys from the D-league in the NBA that are decent role players who never dominated the D league the way CDR is.

Thats the whole point of the D league is for guys is for guys to work on their games and hopefully shine there so they can make an NBA roster and actually contribute to the team.

50 points is pretty impressive. And CDR is already a proven NBA caliber player.

Okay so he put up 30 against Miami and Chicago (two of the best defensive teams). Tell me when Ebanks has done that. Thanks.

Why are we judging the bench now when we have 3 rotation players not playing? (Nash, Blake, Ebanks)

being the honest, former player that Dantoni is,,,,i can see him eventually(sooner than later) going to the FO about the bench and just being like - I CANT DO IT, I JUST CANT DO IT, i need different personnell.. (bye pau, or , hello delonte) ...


..and yes , i understand this is my dream but i can see it happening!

Kobe and Randle led Lakers lead the team to a 32-50 record. the Lakers select Myles Turner with the 5th pick.

Actyally I think ever sense MB was fired he lost ay chance of playing time. I think the whole DUI was just a coincidence at the time.

I'd like this. Great shooter and I think Pietrus would be a good fit in Mike's system.

Problem is neither of those guys are all that good at creating their shots. Clippers have Crawford and Bledsoe. Close to masters at doing such.

I think we should of tried to keep Sessions. He would be a great fit in Mike's system also. He is putting up good consistent numbers with the Bobcats. He's averaging 17, 4, and 5 over there.
