Analyst say a lot of dumb stuff just look at Barkley

"Kobe bryants days of scoring 30-40 a night are over"

:laughing:

Another statistic I found.

in terms of usage or someone either scoring or assisting a score  number 1 in the NBA was LeBron James at 43.1  number 2 was Kobe Bryant at 41.8(or something like that)

pretty amazing info...even more showing Charles incompetence.

Plan B in my opinion would be to sign Al Jefferson.

Or place Pau at the 5 and Paul Milsap at the 4.

West Coast: He can still make more money and for a longer term in L.A., than anywhere else.  not to mention the off-court marketing and promo opportunities that come from being the #2 market in the world.

Plan B = 2014/2015 FA
Bring in Kyrie and another star. Rebuild.
Acquire championship.

Mike D'Antoni is GARBAGE.

Cavs hold a club option on Kyrie in 2014 and he is a restricted FA the following year.  Assuming he continues to develop, why would the Cavs trade him and what do we have to offer?

Plan A: Dwight.

Plan B: Sign-and-trade Dwight - Griffin-Bledsoe for Dwight?

Plan C: Firesale. Amnesty Kobe, Trade everything and everyone for Picks and aim for the bottom and hope for Andrew Wiggins and 60 million in cap-space come 2014.

Griffin? No.

If Dwight doesn't come back you won't see a Lakers championship for well over a decade.

Takes a long time to build a team into a contender, longer than most Laker fans realize.

 

Been through the 88 - 99 drought and if Howard didn't come back, you'd be looking at the same scenario gearing up.  Back then the CBA's and money was far easy to navigate around as well.

A decade? C'mon, worst case we are back in contention in 2014-15 season.

Yeah, i hope so. But seriously, without Dwight we may struggle just to get an 8th seed. I'd rather see the Lakers hit bottom and start the 2014/15 season with 55 million in capspace and a high draft pick in what is going to be an awesome draft.

Oh I know,  I was simply responding to the post that said he CAN'T go anywhere else as if he has no options.  He does have options and teams will be after him, but I don't believe those options are better than LA. 

 

I've said since Dwight arrived that he'll re-sign because of the extra year and extra money, plus the opportunities he'll have here in Los Angeles.  For a guy with his personality, I think being Mr. Los Angeles really appeals to him. He loves to have fun and nothing says fun like Southern California.   

 

If he leaves, I think it's because Dwight doesn't like the pressure of being a Laker.  Some guys are made for it, some guys are not.  I hope Dwight is made for it.  I hope the motivation of being swept in the first round and wanting to prove doubters wrong is burning within him right now.
