Crazy how many guys have been linked to the Lakers.
In the real world, the day Steph awoke at 9 a.m. to begin his Ustream show, Kobe Bryant probably awoke at the same time, even if it was 6 a.m. in California, and lifted weights.

Meeks / Barbosa / Miles....

We have to get 2 out of 3 of these guys. Definitely Miles, either Barbosa or Meeks is a must.

We seem to be interested, but nobody is signing.

Wouldn't mind it as long as he's good with Nash.. He's still really quick & can score.. Not very efficient but he's a nice bench player & has worked with Nash for most of his career.. Barbosa or Meeks + Miles & our bench is set.. We could even dump Blake for nothing without it really hurting us, which would pay for both guys & then some..

I'd say definitely Meeks and hopefully Miles. Two young athletes who can bring something unique to the table and have room to grow is a better fit than an older guy, declining, still capable of scoring but not much good for anything else.

Well, at least we're interested in all these guys, which means Mitch is really trying to address this backup guard hole we have on the bench. I hope we'll get at least one of these guys. I don't even care too much which one. They can all score some points off the bench.

Miles and either Meeks or Barbosa

Meeks is def the better 3 pt shooter, but Barbosa's speed alone is a game changer.

When Barbosa was at his best, he was the best 6th man. I doubt he'll be at that level anymore, but maybe with Nash/Kobe/Pau/Howard he can get back to that level. He's definitely the far more proven commodity

Meeks is fiery and I think that's what this bench really needs...

Tough call. Barbosa as the name and experiece but Meeks has got the range, aggression, and maybe still has some room to grow.

In December, Steve Nash filed for divorce from his wife just a day after she had a baby, and now we have found out the reason behind the divorce.

Rumors were speculating that Nash had left his wife because she gave birth to a black baby, leading to the obvious discovery of infidelity and cheating.

The allegations were confirmed when Aljejandra gave birth to a black baby, and now the farther is said to be Nash's former teammate Jason Richardson.

The Suns abruptly traded Richardson to the Orlando Magic in December, around the same time the baby was born, which only ignites the rumors and speculations even more.

Although we know this is an embarrassing and humiluating rumor, we can't help but wonder, does Nash get's the assist for this one?

i'd be happy with one, really. all are significant upgrades on goudelock and eyenga, who could actually see playing time if the roster stayed as is.

everyone keeps talking about the lakers using their mini mle to accomplish this, but i'd guess they'll try to s&t one of these guys for mcbobs, a decent backup pf who's totally squeezed out of the rotation at this point.
