    PG:Mo Williams/Steve Blake(MLE Money)

    SG:Kobe Bryant

    SF:Ron Artest(for Vlad)

    PF:Lamar Odom

    C:Pau Gasol(for Bynum&Kwame and well, 1st pick if theyre pushy and they will be because we are building a champ team so theyll take advantage)

    id say we should:

    resign Luke… bird rights i think. now, besides that wed still have Ronny, Cook, Evans, Farmar and Sasha.

    so our reserves:

    PG:Farmar

    SG:Sasha

    SF:Evans/Luke

    PF:Cook/Ronny
