Laker Faithful, Far & Wide,
First off... I'm happy to have finally found a seemingly rational and informative Laker discussion board. Secondly, I'm relieved to find Laker fans who seem as crazy as me.
now lemme git down to da bizzo...
Gilbert Arenas may be the best possible fit for the Lakers next year, but I'm curious about the specifics of his restricted free agent status and the Lakers MLE. From what I understand the Lakers can offer $4.7mil, while the Warriors can match offers up to $4.7mil... What gives? Where are the decimal points? What are the known technicalities?
Any other PG ideas? I've heard Jason Terry mentioned, though I firmly believe that Arenas is a future All-Star and we should do our best at snagging him while he's "relatively" cheap. If we can swing a deal for Arenas, most of our Laker retooling for the 2003-04 campaign will be in place. That may give us the NBA's premier back-up PG who is familiar with the triangle in Fisher. Our bench/depth would immediately be bolstered.
Do you play for the love or the money?
