Kobe doesn't need to go back to being "score mode' with Pau out. Only if the guys he finds don't hit shots.

Ron may actually play the 4 more now because of that.

The Heat play small ball with have Chris Bosh as their Center.

This just means that other guys have to step up.

Anybody think Pau might end up getting traded? He is not returning in 2013 because we have to pay, Dwight and Clark if theres a deal out there where we can get a Center and a couple other pieces would you do it? Last year remember the Warriors traded for Andrew Bogut even though he was injured

It could happen. The receiving team would need to waive the physical, and whether they would do that for an agining, declining, terrible contract like Pau is unlikely. However, if Pau calls it a season and opts for surgery, which has a better chance of healing, it may happen. It would be a big chunk of money for a team, but he will be a HUGE expiring next season in case he isn't 100%.

well in a rotation like this, you're looking for 3 point shots from Artest , Jamison and Nash.. He'll probably go 25/7 till the end of the trip ..

Prob is kobe's shooting has gotten really bad lately ..

I wonder if this will possibly make us attempt to acquire Garnett. We do not have picks nor any attractive pieces, but what we can do is possibly give them Pau who's contract is expiring next season and will be a great trade bait next season. Celtics might receive a better return. Maybe get a third team involved?

Pau and dwight being out shouldn't stop kobe from passing. We just need to focus more on clark. I can see clark averaging 15 points a gam easily if he's given the ball.

Pau has 0 trade value until the offseason. Why would a team want to deal with pau's contract for a season and half when they can just deal with it for one season.

^ didn't mean he'll never pass but not like he did lately .. He'll try to be more aggressive at the rim ,,


Yeah its Clark time, last time both pau and dwight were out he started his career, i'd be happy if he takes his game to another level since they're out too lol.

This hurts our already slim chances of a title even more obviously but I still believe we can make the playoffs without pau provided Dwight is healthy. It just puts a little more pressure on bench guys like Jamison and Meeks to score more. We should definitely sign Kenyon Martin though

I am pretty sure we are 2-0 with Kobe, Dwight and Nash playing and Pau out. I think we'll be okay, especially if we acquire another big body.

We should win if Dwight plays. It'll be very hard without him.

Real Deal, what do you think about K-Mart as an option? Do you prefer Sacre?

Nah, I've been fine with us signing Kenyon. He can defend multiple frontcourt positions, even at his age. He's 34 or 35...a combo of things just didn't happen for him to get signed. He wants to contend for a ring, wants big market teams, and may have wanted more than vet's minimum. After not accepting less money and being passed on, he would probably consider it...but we aren't exactly contending, either.

In 2010-11, he didn't have that bad of a season for Denver, despite the limited minutes. Those numbers weren't that bad (9/6/2 and 51% FG in 26 minutes a game). That's close to a double-double season if he gets around 35 minutes a night.

He's injury-prone, though, but at this point, most everyone is going to be that OR unproven.
