There's no doubt that we're going to miss LO's versatility. I'm just worried over a potential Bynum injury. That's our absolute worst case scenario especially considering CP3 is no longer an option.
Boozer and Iggy are stars.
Okay, but so you took 1 word I used and turned that into a debate. Fine. In your eyes Lamar is not a star.
You still said McRoberts is "cheaper" replacement for Lamar.
He is not.
Nobody in the NBA does what Lamar does. Certainly no bench player.
You also said he did not act professional. What is your basis? He did not go out in the media and demand trades or smear the Lakers name. Emotional-- yes.
But it seems like there is a large double standard in the NBA. When players complain or leave their team, blasphemy. When owners cut ot trade players out of no where, it's part of the business. The Lakers should have told Lamar and Gasol. Hey- we're thinking of trading you. That's why Lamar was so upset. He got treated like just another number. I get that.
