Delonte would easily boost the production of this team. The guy plays with energy, which is the main thing that this team lacks. Energy can be contagious. And once Nash is back, Delonte makes our bench stronger on both ends of the floor.

My gut feeling is that something is done within 48 hours. This team is WIN NOW and another 4 or 5 losses within the next couple of weeks could spell disaster for our title hopes.

Delonte West will take the nine-year minimum. I can guarantee that.

Delonte is better than Duhon too. It'll be awesome to see a point guard in LA that can actually defend. :/

Better than Blake tooo

West and house are both better then Morris

Dont know if they are better the duhon though


i respect your respect for duhon, because i have new found respect for duhon,buttttt, delonte west is 10 times better than duhon.. delonte can actually get the the rim and finish, and he has a midrange J that he can get himself open for,,,delonte's ability to create offense off the dribble is going to be the 2nd unit's savior - its what the 2nd units missing..

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

He noted that he would play for a non-guaranteed, league-minimum deal because, as he tweeted, "by the time I get there u see what I'm about&what I bring everyday."

and especially with DJO's contract being nongarunteed, its no problem to bring in Delonte.. (sry DJO, we all had high hopes for ya,but you SUCKED in a lakers uniform,let morris outplay you)

A PG isnt the reason they are losing. How about playing some [expletive]ing defense? How about getting some rebounds? How about making your FTs? How about moving the ball instead of 1 pass and a shot? How about not averaging 16 TOs a game? A PG is the least of this pathetic team's problems

^ Funny, over the past few games, our point guard has cost us at least 6 games. Our defense against George Hill, Nelson, Westbrook, Irving, Mo Williams

No, it doesn't. Nash coming back isnt going to make the Lakers start to defend and rebound better. He isnt going to make this team start playing with heart and look like they give a damn. He isnt going to make them start hitting FTs either. He MIGHT cut down on the turnovers but they have much bigger problems a PG isnt going to solve.

Most of all we need a PG who has speed and can play D. He should be able to defend pick and rolls. Dwight can definitely defend the pick and roll with his speed, but if the PG can't do the same, it's gonna be a problem, no matter how good your big man is.
We tested. We battle tested. We battle tested baby! We know what we gotta do.

pg isnt the reason we're losing,,,its a small reason, we need to cut down on the TOs.
but heres how delonte's gunna help.
our 2nd unit needs a player who can create offense on the wing, once nash comes back in 2weeks, delonte's impact on this team will be huge.
