I also see the Lakers addressing the pf problem. The best fit, even though I don't want to see it, cause I looking at long term, will be Malone. I see the Lakers going after Malone. He will work out cause of his ability to hit 15 footers which he will have all night long with Shaq & Kobe on the floor. The only difference will be this time they will be open uncontested 15 footers. Malone will help Shaq tremendously on the boards. You won't see Shaq running around next year saying can someone other me get a f*&%#@! rebound. I see the Lakers only going after Howard and Brown, if Malone don't work out. If the Lakers do try to address the pg position, it will be with Payton, not Kidd. Payton would more likely accept less than Kidd would. At any rate, Clark would not work for us. We all saw how he stunk up the place with Sacramento, and they were expecting big things from him and never got it. From thier point of view at the beginning of the season, even with Webber going down in the playoffs they should still be able to win with Clark. That didn't happen. So that speaks for itself about Clark, stay away from Clark.
