^Well, teams can't have ALL boy scouts and milk drinkers.
Nor can the Lakers get blamed for always making the right decisions over decades. At some point its not just luck or "gamble", its superior management and superior ownership.

You're thinking of Phoenix, GS, or even Charlotte Raja Bell, not the ancient current Bell that hasn't played a single game this season gcc. This would be no different than Tracy Murray or Jim Jackson or a few other old dudes we signed that used to be good that did jack.

Raja Bell WTF!!! we dont need him at all. If they want old player at SG or SF who is FA then sign T-Mac....at least he can score from the bench...my opinion is that we need big man NOW, K-Mart or Amundson would be nice to play with the bench

do we really need more geezers who can't defend? not much of a difference between Bell old arse vs. Meeks "chicken head off" defense if you ask me, one is old and slow the otherwhile young and relatively quick but is dumb/small, end result bad D.

I know and I agree. Bell did not play much at Utah so I am not really aware of where he is physically but just for one or two crucial stops a game, I'd be willing to trust him. It's unfortunate that Ebanks can't or couldn't muster up that role. Morris is just to green. Duhon is shot. Oh hell...I'd give more minutes to Meeks who is in and out of D'Antoni's doghouse. :man10:

Yeah I mean Bell would be good only for limiting Artest's minutes... Having a body to throw out there is better than nothing.

Nash/Blake/Duhon/Morris
Bryant/Meeks
Artest/Artest
Clark/Jamison
Howard/Clark

Just having that extra body could give us less Artest... and if Bell can do anything he can shoot the damn ball still. He's still around 37% or so from deep since going to Utah.

Considering we aren't playing a backup 3 at all in Ebanks, I guess it couldn't hurt. So yeah, less time for MWP and less time with both Nash and Blake on the court going small, which might be a good thing.

If Bell has anything left in the tank I'd prefer it to just not playing a backup SF. It would be better to have an option.

We know that D' Antoni would at least give him a shot.

Ideally I'd still like to pick up a big guy like Amundson, though. What's up with him?

Honestly, we don't need Pau. We need a productive backup C. I really like Metta/Jamison/Clark being rotated around the 3/4.

All we need is a big to run with these guys and play defense against the other teams big. If JO does get bought out, I hope he signs with us.

You can thank the greedy owners and the new CBA for that.
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.

This is what we've got for the season guys. This is it.

On a 100 million dollar payroll, I think that's understandable.

Well, isn't there a deadline for when players are released and can be signed on another team.

If Phoenix is letting go JO, I would snap him up. He stills plays good D and rebound.

That deadline I think is a while from now. It's just in case some injuries happen and whatnot and it's closer to the playoffs.

So some time in March I'm pretty sure is the deadline to adjust your roster. But I doubt the Lakers make many more moves unless Bell and O'Neal come available. And even then... probably not a whole lot of action.
