Winner! Winner! Chicken! Dinner!!!

According to this John Hollinger from ESPN’s Insider, the Lakers are winners during the off-season. We’ve only just began… Hopefully.

11. Los Angeles Lakers
(added Javaris Crittenton, Derek Fisher)

I’m not sure if this is enough to make Kobe rescind his trade demand, but it helps. The Lakers point guards were disastrous last season, so adding the veteran Fisher to take over for Smush Parker should pay immediate dividends (although the Lakers overpaid and will hate themselves for this two years from now, that’s in the future — remember, we’re just looking at the impacts for 2007-08 today).

Crittenton was supposed to be a long-range pick, but he played well enough in summer league that folks may reconsider that position — especially since at 6-foot-5, he has the size that Phil Jackson craves in the backcourt.

    Hey Fatty,

    I hope you’re OK man, you left suddenly with that headache of yours. Give us a sign that you’re alive and well. I hope Taylor didn’t drug you too, like he did it to KG.

    This is a sweet deal for JO

    LAKERS:JO,Danny Granger
    PACERS:Bynum,Radmonivic,K.Brown,Farmer

    This is a sweet deal for KG

    LAKERS:KG
    PACERS:Farmer,K.Brown,Radmonivic
    MINNY:Bynum, JO

    With both of these deals we need to sign Steve Francis dirt cheap and also a Big dirt cheap(probly combined for less then $845,000).That so it will make a roster of 14 players.

    This is the way I see things!!!!!!!!!!

    You’re forgiven…with those hilarious quotes (in our fav banner) who wouldn’t? lol.

    RE: Stein’s article. This team has had a lot of unpopular moves (by unpopular I mean unwise in some eyes)…but we’ve always marched on. They said drafting Bynum was puzzling at best, since we could have gotten someone that would help us win now (a choice I would have made)…but if Bynum is what it will take to get KG…then ha ha, we’re brilliant lol. Nevertheless, it’s nice to hear that someone else thinks Java and Da Fish were positive decisions.

    New logo’s background is blurry. Other Laker jersey was better.

  • Q WUOR

    I just read on lakers topbuzz, what we were really offered for shaq, and it makes me and sick to my stomach.

    Nash
    Howard
    Jamison
    and the # 5 pick for Shaq……..LMAO OMG..

    and that # 5 pick could’ve been used for

    Josh Smith , Al jefferson, luol deng , anybody but devin harris since we already had nash.

    Our team would look like this.

    Nash
    kobe
    howard
    jamison
    Mihm

    Im sure by now we’d have a big to go with this lineup.

    Wow, we could’ve won 2 more championships for sure by now , with another 2 – 3 to go.

    Just thought I’d pis# you laker fans off, of the thought with what could have been.

    Why didnt we, mitch didnt want to play shaq 4 times a year, only twice.

    LOL. wheres the brains ?

  • showtime88

    BTW, tennis observers report that Garnett didn’t look amused when he was shown on the video screen and public-address announcer Ted Sobel intoned, “There’s a team in purple and gold that could use you.”
