I would too. I missed him in a Laker uni last season. Yeah, he had a disappointing playoffs for us thus to some extent leaving a bad final impression on many, but the criticism was a tad unfair since he was clearly affected by injury and his play showed it. Outside of that, during the season, he was easily one of our most rare consistent players outside of Kobe of course. He always gets after it, plays tough on both ends, doesn't back down. His passion can be contagious and a bonus for the team, especially when or if the starters get off to a slow start. Sometimes you need that spark or boost of energy off the bench to get the guys going.
All that being said however, unfortunately I highly doubt he'd consider choosing us over the Clippers at this point. Yeah, he & Kobe are still rather cool with one another, but he's also close to Chris Paul (probably more) and flourished way more in the Clippers more uptempo free flowing system with the better more equipped personnel around him. Clearly, we didn't utilize him to his best capabilities when he was here getting out more & running getting easer opportunities. His departure from us just in general seemed to leave somewhat of a sour taste on both ends and even more since we didn't really make much of an effort to keep his services. I'm sure he remembers that well as evidenced by some of his comments after he left in reponse to the time he spent here.
