Laker brain wrote:The reason why I want Artest, is he plays hard w/ intensity and is a winner, Jermaine Oneal wants him to be traded, and I think that he is making those incidents because he doesn't want to play in Indiana. I think Artest could be the defensive stopper we need, and I think Devean is the only bait we have to get him. Did you know that Artest held TMAC to 18pts, and he is very strong, I dare Doug Christie to serve him. I think the Lakers need a killer instinct, and Artest and Payton could do give us intimidation in the back court. Devean George is athletic but he is levels below Artest, Artest is Indianas 2nd best player, when he was on point Indiana was leading the east.
Think about it
Payton-16pts 4rebs 7asst 2stls/Fisher
Kobe- 27pts 6rebs 6asst 2.6stls
Artest 13pts 6rebs 2.5 stls
Shaq 27pts 11rebs 2.5blks
this is 79 pts per game between these 4 players.
I think Phil can handle Artest, he did a great job w/ Rodman
I'd pull the trade as fast as I can say "The jello's Jigglin'....
Go Mitch make us better please....
