O ye of little faith.

 

This is a great pick up. I've always liked how they gelled together as a group. I'd rather have the Lakers lose while giving it their all, than lose with a half-concerted effort. At least this team will be worth watching again. Trevor Ariza anyone? Is he available if I may ask?

Now all the Lakers need to do is take Pringles up to Canada and set him adrift on a piece of ice and they'll be all set...

I just picture Farmar, Vujacic, and Odom like the gang in Always Sunny in Philadelphia entering the locker going "AYY OHH!!!" with Kobe and Pau screaming it back.

Considering what the Lakers have to offer free agents (no money and no opportunity at a ring), pickup seems fine.  This season is going to be brutal.

He was solid here in Turkey but inconsistent. There are so many games that he saved his team with his scoring and he sometimes did a good job as a playmaker but he was mostly a scorer and inconsistent.

That's the kind of player you want on your team. What you don't want is someone that takes 30mil less to get away from the lakers.

It's obvious that the lakers know they aren't winning so they are generating good will by putting a team out there that can market nostalgia

when you put a previous championship team back together, you are going to try to contend even though you don't have a chance because the league has changed rapidly.

 

BTW, did i read Nick Young was gonna come here? wtf. for the min?
