zero chance.  I have a better chance of playing in the NBA than the Lakers signing CP3 this off season. And I suck at bball.


MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.

No chance, but I sort of feel sorry for CP3. He is in the exact same situation he was on the Hornets. He really should leave.

Yes the Lakers stand a chance, especially if the Clippers get knocked out of the 1st round. like it appears they will. Paul in all likely hood would not want to re-sign with the Clippers. He can make a stink and demands just like any other superstar. It may not be a huge chance, but it's not inconceivable.

Is there any way we can trade Gasol's 19 mil for another trade exception + some fillers and then amnesty Ron Ron. I'm just throwing stuff out there...what are all your thoughts?

Always that possibility. That scenario is plausible

lol if you did that you probably could sign Paul but he'd have to be signed somewhere else and no one would give him up for a 19 million dollar blank space and no draft picks =p

it would make things interesting at the trade deadline though.

There is also the impossible, highly unlikely.

The Lakers just need to lay the bed they made in, and accept that next season isn't championship or bust, they can't make moves, they are stretched and they are fortunate to have everything expire going into a good free agency period.

A trade exception for CP3 wouldn't be ideal for either team, simply because the team that signs CP3 (which would have to happen first) will have to wait a few months before trading him for that exception (well, not exactly trading him and receiving the exception, but you guys know what I mean).

 

And no team has a reason to do that, because signing him, and then trading him for basically cap space, doesn't make sense for that team.  Just don't sign him.

I don't think Chris Paul bailing out on the Clippers is beyond reason, but I can't foresee a way the Lakers can get him.

What about the Knicks?

I don't care about the Knicks.

 

But they wouldn't be stupid to at least give it a shot.

We'll have to wait till 2014 for the Lakers to make a big run at some FAs. Should be an interesting summer, especially with Kobe's contract up then too. It could be either the end of an era or the start of a final ring push.

CP3 should sign a one year deal and give the Clippers an ultimatum. And then when they fail and 2014 comes along...
