I’ve been eager to find anything linking the Lakers and James Posey in the same article. Now, ironically enough, the Boston Herald mentions the teams interested in picking up Posey. Makes me dizzy, but hey, at least there is a report of us putting an offer together for him:

Herald: The Celtics forward reportedly is looking for a midlevel deal that starts at approximately $5.8 million and carries over 4-5 years. Posey’s hometown Cleveland Cavaliers are said to be putting together an offer, in addition to the Detroit Pistons, New Orleans Hornets, Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets.

    Interesting. We’ll see how it plays out.

    Talk about closing the barn door after the horse ran off…

    Why didn’t Mitch Clouseau sign him LAST year?
    He was “happy with his roster”?
    Especially with all of the guys that never play?

    Unfortunately, Danny Ainge had the foresight to sign Posey and as a result the Celtics get another banner. Good going Mitch!

    How lame, you’re going to blame Mitch for not siging Posey!! That’s one of the dumbest things I’ve heard. Hate to break it to you, but even Pat Riley wanted nothing to do with Posey, even after Posey won his title with the Heat.

    By the way genious, the Lakers were interested in him last year, however the Lakers used some of their MLE on Derek Fisher, so that took them out of the running for Posey.

    I swear I wish Jerry West was still in LA,’cause there is NO WAY IN HELL that a SMELL-TICS would EVER be apart of a LAKER ORGANIZATION.

    And people say Gasol is soft.If this goes down I don’t know if I could look at the Lakers the same,I mean that from the heart.

  • SliqRiq

    Agree with you DC, no matter how good of a role he played with them fuk former SMELL-TICS. This will be like my Raiders signing that A-HOLE Bill Romanowski from the Broncos I hated it with a passion.

    And here I thought you were a Laker fan. Don’t you remember Rick Fox, a member of our 3 world championship teams, played for the Celtics (Boston suck-a-d*cks, as I like to call them) before he was traded to the Lakers.

  • Lakers in 2009!!!

    I’m thinking he would more than likely stay with the Celtics, but I wouldn’t mind seeing Posey here. He’s almost, in SOME ways, a young version of ‘Robert Horry’. He’s long, plays some good D, and shoots from downtown. So we’ll see what happens.

  • DCLAKER

    That’s what I’m talkin”bout.We keep gettin’ SMELL-TIC players when there are other players out there that can do 10 times a better job than Posey.Will he help us win,HELL YEAH,BUT I LIVE AND DIE AS A LAKER FAN.I just don’t want people(fake Celtic fans) sayin’ we had to get one of theirs to WIN – IT – ALL,JUST LIKE WHEN RICK FOX WAS HERE.

    GETPIETRUS and be smart.

  • BringDFishBack

    The Lakers need to pass. They already have a big logjam at SF. If they were to get Posey they would have Vladi, Luke, Ariza, and Posey. They couldn’t find enough playing time last year, and adding another player? Im pretty sure he’s too slow to play SG and too small to play PF.

  • Gelo

    Stop with all the freakin ranting about we need this guy and that guy. Lakers are not gonna sign any new players unless Sasha and or Ronny do not return.

    Lakers will be intact come training camp. I gaurantee it.

  • MILO

    posey only cares about money! fu-ck that guy!

  • joseph
