PTM2020 -  I hear you,

but I was saying the same thing about Artest & Barnes when we signed em.   The Laker org has proven are the best at redirecting these troubled but  talented players.

yeah, brookes will probably go back to phoenix
 

 yes but Arenas is done imo. He hasn't shot over 41% in 6 years. He's not worth the risk because he's not the same type of player anymore. He's never been a good team player anyways. Plus it wasn't so much the Lakers org that was great at redirecting them it was Phil Jackson.

Plus I don't think he brings what we need off the bench. We need a pure pg. Honestly I'd rather see Morris get the minutes than him because I think Morris has a very bright future. Either way we need someone to either step up from our bench or we need to acquire someone because our bench hasn't produced anything lately.

Btw Kobe with 40 again. Although I think tonight was the first one of these three games where he shot the ball too much. Bynum looked like he could of taken the game over earlier if we would of gotten him more involved.

 Yeah, I was hoping for Bynum to take more shots too.
Mike Brown has gotta put his foot down and call more plays for Bynum.

You're right, Phil has alot to do with it.

 no one has the balls to stand up Kobe. We were cruising as a team and playing very well and then Kobe decided he needed to chuck up 30 shots. Kobe is our best player and still, after 16 years, a top 3 player in the NBA but he needs to learn when it's time to defer to other players.

Nothing worries me more than thinking about Kobe when he's 37 years old and when Bynum will be by far our best player yet Kobe won't let him be because of his ego.

 ughhhh.... that sucked tonight.  I was in a room full of Clipper fans and had to endure it all.

We're sorely missing Blake and a solid SG backup.

It's not going to be enjoyable to be the second best NBA team in LA.

PTM,

How do you feel about the Lakers getting away from the triangle?

 It's still early on but I do believe it was necessary, it was time for a change.   I love that they are using the high pick & roll more often because they had great success with it last year during the long win streaks, yet for some reason Phil buttoned down on it and then got away from it completely towards the end of the year and playoffs.  This year it's been killer for em.

 Yeah, Drew is just a habit or two away from reaching critical mass.  His stats have been comparable to Dwights this year and he's not slowin down.

I'm in the camp that says to stick with him and go for a high powered Guard with the TPE.   I think this team is just a Guard away from being a top 2 or 3 contender.

 Gaaaaddaaannnggg faaaack.

ughhh. that heat game was hard to watch.

I guess it's pretty obvious what our holes are.  Magic may be right about this team. Theres alot of talk right now about Pau for DWill.   As much as I love Pau, I say Kupchack should make the trade.

We'll see.

I'd love to get Deron Williams, it just sucks to have to give up Pau.

Maybe if Odom were still around that wouldn't be as hard to swallow.

Losing streak... Mike Brown should be thinking really hard about limiting Kobe's minutes to a reasonable amount.

MY COD THIS GOUDLOCK aka The GLOCK




What a diamond in the ruff Mitch has found. This kid can BALL!!! Handles the ball very well / keeps up with other teams speedy guards / fearless and deadly from range / quick off the drible to the basket / nice consistent teardrop shot.

 Best win of the season yesterday against the Heat.   Despite them being Boshless it's a tremendous confidence booster for the team.

I'm really curious as to how the Front Office  is going to react to it.    It just may hold off them trying to trade Pau.

The trade rumors I'm hearing are finally sounding like they could improve LA. Would love to get Kyle Lowry or Rajon Rondo.
