Perhaps our favorite is Kevin Garnett. While some people label it as “dreamland,” others believe – given the right circumstances – it could be a reality. Then there is Ron Artest, who is apparently out of Sacramento come next season. And lastly, there is J. O’Neal.
While all three sound great and are of high interest to the fans, JO is the one who stands out in terms of being rumored more than idle speculation. The question is, who is the “large” piece that can change the Lakers organization?
The blogger at igottabasketballjones speculates that the “large piece” will come after the draft:
“… which is why I still am a bit frustrated that Phil couldn’t get everyone to buy into his system… well, one guy (and please, don’t worry- a LARGE piece is coming- right after the draft lottery is concluded and we know what could be).”
O’Neal? Artest? Garnett? Hmmm…
