    yeahh!!! now we have 15 players & please don’t waive Gaffney and Thomas Kelati :)

  • laker fan who hates flukes

    the lakers would be silly to waive off thomas kelati since hes a better shooter than sasha period.

    I dont know about this, I mean its good they waived these 3, but I dont have good hopes for Kelati and Gaffney. If this is the roster that won us a championship, why change it?

    Unless Kelati and Gaffney can show me what they can do, Im not impressed, I give them next game to prove to me they are Lakers material

    Thank God. None of them looked like NBA material out there. Then again it didnt help that their minutes were when all of the rookies were out there. I mean Farmar was running the offense and they didnt score for like ten minutes.
