That would be idiotic I have watched every laker game this season(except for OKC games because I don't want to see use get embarrassed) and will continue to watch every laker game this season

but you know what would have been crazy though?

What if we kept our picks we could be looking to get Shabazz Muhammed, Alex Poythress, and other top quality Lottery picks to pair with Dwight and Kobe to help us get young the CHEAPER way

We should have a rule that when you are being sarcastic, try to use green text. Other forums use this and I think it is great.

KOBE. #VINO. BRYANT.

You know, that's not such a bad idea.

Can't really make it a rule, people have trouble enough with the rules that are in place right now. But it would be kind of a good idea anyway. next time I post something sarcastic or meant to be that way, I'll give it a roll.

I don't think you've been watching Alex Poythress.

I have he's still ranked very high and still has a lot of pontial based on his size and athleticism but he does need TIME to become useful.. pretty much Kyle has taken up most of his minutes at the small forward positions.... the best 3 players on that team are Noel Nerlens, Ryan Harrow, and Archie Goodwin

Noel is a great defender and a even better defensive anchor... but is toothpick small and needs to atleast put on a lot of muscle if he's going to play in the NBA

Ryan Harrow also need to put on even more weight(he was even smaller than he is now) and also need to develop a mental toughness that is very glaring but even with those flaws he is still a low turnover PG that can spot up and hit the 3 while always trying to make the best decisions while he has the ball in his hands... and he is also one of my favorite PGs in college

Archie Goodwin has a Jordan Crawford type game before he reached his potential.. he has a score first mentality and attack HARD at the rim and also doesn't shy away from big moments in the game but his issue is that he's turnover prone and doesn't make the best decisions when he does have the ball but when he gets his offense going he can definitively be scary

There are plenty of minutes for Poythress if he wants them. But he is not performing, so he sits. NBADraft.net has dropped him from its mock draft.

Noel is no skinnier than A. Davis. He is arguably a better on ball defender, as well.

Whoa...now that's weird: we beat Utah with Kobe/Dwight two-man game, Nash playing off the ball more and through them?! I can't believe this!

Just can't!

On a serious note, Kobe will need to score more and pass less to beat the elite teams...but the whole point was, Nash has to establish himself as a threat. We got what...two assists from him tonight? He can give us 15 points and 7 assists every game...that would be enough. A 15/7 season would be perfect from Nash, and for us.

The statsheet should look like this:

Kobe: 25 PTS, 6 AST
Dwight: 20 PTS, 12 REB, 2 AST
Nash: 15 PTS, 7 AST
Gasol: 15 PTS, 10 REB, 4 AST

That's 75 points and 19 assists (giving Howard a couple) from our "big four" and leaving the rest up to Ron Artest and the bench play, who should be able to contribute 25 points and 2-3 assists easily.

We don't need Nash throwing 10+ assists every night, and we shouldn't ask Kobe to score 30+ points.

Play through the five-time champ and the big man superstar, not through the 39-year old PG. That's all that needs to be said.

What Kobe said he told Nash after Nash passed up an open shot: "'Shoot the m-----------r. What the f--- are you doing?'"


Yep.

They slowed the pace down so we didn't have to see Ron Artest trying to be LeBronze James
