WHy would LA sign with the Lakers... He's better off signing with the Spurs.

I don't understand why Aldridge will even come here. It makes zero sense.

Maybe all the things the FO has been doing with taking care of u players is paying off. Lakers pay there players big gucks while spurs always ask for paycuts.

Just really wanted Okafor.

What happens if Okafor is at 23 ppg and 11 RPG in 2 or 3 yrs and Russell is struggling to average 15 ppg on inefficient %'s.

I would have played it safe with Okafor, looks like more of a sure thing.

When Hill isn't our center next season are you going to come back and say you were wrong?

What if Okafor struggles on defense and cant be as dominate as he was in college while Russel is an allstart in a few years. No one knows. Just gotta trust the lakers FO here. They saw somthing in him just like they saw somthing in Clarkson.

I'm hoping we get Aldridge too, but at this point why does he come here?

Drafting Okafor, a more attractive player for a FA, would have allowed him to play PF, his preferred position. We would have had something nice going.

That doesn't matter cause we're both offering him the same max deal. For at least 4 years, that thought doesn't enter his mind.

Only thing I can think of is Spurs and Mavsstraight up can't afford him yet and the Lakers can swoop in with cap space asap

They probably know it's a long shot to get LMA.

 

I guess this just signals another year of hard core tanking next year.

 

I don't see DJ/LMA/Cousins coming here,
