"If you have a bunch of cylinders, we're not running on all cylinders right now," said Kupchak.


That's why you diagnose the faulty component(s) and replace accordingly.

He'll prove a significant upgrade from Duhon and Morris in terms of being an offensive threat that can keep the defense honest. Which they don't have to worry about with Duhon or Morris.

Its about time to get desperate Coach D with the lineups go ahead & use the entire team & stop relying on MWP & Pau when they are giving absolutely nothing to that specific gm.

If all 3 bigs weren't injury prone we'd probably have not kept Sacre. But as it stands we can't take that risk.

Not enough. Blake is more passive than our other Steve.
To be honest, we need a back-up point guard closer to Bledsoe or Jarrett Jack.

Someone who is a scorer, who can penetrate and get our big guys easy shots and putbacks.


If not a scoring point guard, then a scoring combo guard like Monta( for Pau)

you can forget about Monta

But I'm surprised you didn't say Jennings as the Bucks are actively shopping him.

Brandon Jennings on our bench would be perfect in my opinion. You got your scoring point guard that is capable of going for 25, he's young. Doesn't have a huge contract(still has his rookie one) and is someone that would keep the defense honest and could run D'antoni's system.

The Bucks are shopping Jennings actively the Lakers should at least SEE who they would lose to get him.

Nash starting with Jennings coming off the bench would be good.

Jennings isn't a superstar. But he would be a GREAT addition to our bench 1 position IF he could take backing up Steve Nash.

Now for the traditional arm chair GM trade machine link that "will obviously be so obvious Mitch is dumzor if he don't make it happen!"

I R GM!! MITCH DO THIZ!! IT'S OBVIOUS THE OTHER TEAM WILL TAKE!!! GIVE THE WIZARDS 4 CENTERS THEY DON'T CARE!!!! :mitch: THANK YOU ALL THANK YOUS!!! :ronflex:

P.S. if you didn't know that trademachine was satirical... there's no hope for ya :(

Lakers plan to huddle and assess options over next couple of days. Don't expect anything major right away. Kupchak is a ponderer ;)

Don't expect anything major right away is my favorite statement when it comes to Mitch.
