Geez Mitch...you'd think after like 30 years with the team they might hook you up with an office bigger than mine. Renegotiate Mitch!

And a more expensive guitar...or is that thing a game guitar.

My preference Ernie Ball Music Man Luke guitar.

 

Welcome back Nick. Thanks for the hometown pride and discount.

Love you back on the squad.

 

...take it easy on the chucking!


Praying for 1. Kobe's Health, 2. High Draft Pick!, 3. Miracle Trade (Not yet), 4. Quality Free Agent (Nope), 5. Brilliant Coaching Hire (Still waiting, wow)

I was thinking catch and shoot. When he is on the floor with Kobe he should be able to get open.

Nick Young did great as a spot up shooter last year and seemed to really embrace coming off the bench, I think that will be his nitch for us. If he can keep up the production going into the 2nd year(15-17 off the bench) then I think if we do well as a team he'll be in contention for 6th man.  He SHOULD have been last year honestly.

When u think of the perimeter relief Kobe has had since 2011

 

Metta shooting 3s, GGoudeluck, Meeks his 1st season here,Ebanks, Duhon, Blake (hurt).

 

Now you got Lin, Xavier and nick Young

 

 

Thats legit

 

If you get ANYTHING from Nash or CLARKSON, ALL WE NEED KOBE TO DO IS BE SMART ENOUGH TO put people in positions to succeed when you have the ball in your hand.

 

I wonder if Hill and Davis can add something to the game for Boozer and Randle

 

If so, plus Wes playing a little better next season

 

 

This team can be similar to what the Suns and Wolves were last season

 

Even if Kobe doesn't come back as an All Star

Nick Young talks about Kobe mentoring him; On the Court and Off the Court

 

Young said playing alongside Kobe Bryant has made an even bigger difference for him personally. 


"He's been great, really," Young said. "He's been like my mentor, really, right now. He's been calling, texting me, talking to me, motivating me. I think that's big. Growing up, who would have thought Kobe would be the one doing all that? I didn't ever think I'd be working out with Kobe or talking to him." 

Pascascio, who also works as Young's assistant, said he has noticed the change in his cousin since he joined the Lakers. 

"He grew a lot," Pascascio said. "He matured a lot last year, learning from Kobe. Learning more than just getting buckets. He did other things. It was good. And he was looking forward to coming back."
