There are only so many minutes. He whined when he got like 15 mins, and wanted more. But guess what happened? JORDAN MOTHA[expletive]IN HILL HAPPENED.

 

Anyway, give me a 2nd round pick. Don't ruin the chemistry.

2nd rd pick does nothing for LA right now. they gotta make it thru this season first. PAu is gonna claim nagging injuires like he hurt like he always does & miss gms, Jordan will eventually throw himself to the ground several times a gm & will have his nagging injury issues, they gotta keep Kahman around right now for insurance purposes at least.

I'd rather see kaman on the toilet w salmonella poisoning than shawne williams in the lineup. Williams has not impressed me at all.


Praying for 1. Kobe's Health, 2. High Draft Pick (Randle!) 3. Miracle Trade (Not yet), 4. Quality Free Agent (Boozer, kind of), 5. Brilliant Coaching Hire (Byron!...but the jury is out)

It's tough, he got sick and had that back issue and while he's out JHill just started beasting so there goes some minutes. Then Pau had that little stretch where he looked like he was coming around before his shooting went to [expletive] again so there were some minutes. Plus while he's hurt and sick not practicing Sacre is and is showing what he can do.

 

It's just a matter of the young guys taking advantage of the opportunity to showcase themselves while he was out. He'll get back into the rotation sooner or later once he gets feeling 100%. I can see him playing more when Kobe comes back and they can run a pick & roll/pop together.

The man can produce still, give him some minutes. If Pau and Hill are not being affective, give Sacre and him a few extra minutes. What's the harm in that?

Wouldn't put it past him. After all, we know what he did to our predator in New York.

Jordan Hill wasnt ready in New York. You want Kaman in over Pau?
When Williams wasnt playing well, we had Kaman in. It is what it is.

Pau and Hill are effective.

You have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.

Kaman is a big- and not stiff. And expiring.

Teams will have interest.

Put it like this, if CK can mind his manners, there will be a role for him.

With Farmar hurt and Nash practicing and Kobe returning, I can see a slow, veteran group of
Kobe, Nash, Pau, Kaman and maybe Wes or Meeks

It's unfortunate because I like him and thought he was playing pretty well, but you can't mess with the chemistry. 

 

Sure we're only 9-9, nothing to get crazy about but a lot of people thought we would be in a much worse spot and take a look at the records of other teams.

I don't think this is an issue...he'll reclaim his spot soon enough.  I think Hill may be better off the bench but if it's Kaman off the bench at C, we are still in great position.  I've got no problems with the lineups outside of playing Wes Johnson at PF.

 

I do think that there will be a trade soon enough.  That trade will clear up a LOT of the logjam at PF/C.  Either Pau, Hill or Kaman gets moved...and I'm not even sure we can trade Kaman...so...

 

In a perfect world?  Pau/pick for Jeff Green/Brandon Bass.  I'm not sold on Melo as the next face of the franchise.  This would be a great trade for both teams, giving BOS lots of cap flexibility this offseason (only 30M on the books) and give Kobe the young, athletic help (Green SF/PF -- Bass PF/C) he will need to chase that 6th and 7th ring in the next 2-3 years.

Generally teams don't give up draft picks for guys buried on the bench that are expiring deals.  2nd round guys may not have a lot of promise but unless some contender loses a back up big or in desperate need of one due to injury no one is trading for Kaman for straight salary.

Not much was out there.  They needed a big and he was the best one available.

That's why there isn't much to see here.  Kaman will get playing time...as long as he's patient.

I think the problem is that we have a deep team and kamam came back at the wrong time for him because he has to wait while someone plays poor.. 

I like his head is right now, just keep being positive and your time will come.

Any team that WANTS to make playoffs and is too small, will consider Kaman. From the Heat to the Knicks.
