Free Agent Frenzy: Wayne Ellington signed (423)

But that's not reality. Reality is that we have Morris, Duhon, Blake, and Nash at the PG position.

We've never NEEDED Derek. We NEED a backup/starting SF.

Of course not. But at $261,000 if a CBA genie showed up, I would absolutely take Derek Fisher over Duhon and Morris.

But realistically, no we don't need another pg. At the beginning of the year would I have taken Fisher over Morris? Probably..

Well yes, that'd be different. If we could switch Duhon for Fisher is one thing, but we can't.

^What this team needs is LeBron James. You put LeBron at the 3, with Nash, Kobe, Gasol and Howard, and let Artest(World Peace) come off the bench with Blake, Clark and a healthy Jordan Hill; and we walk our way to a championship this season. Incredible that one person(LeBron) could basically solve all of our problems right now. Sadly, it will only happen in my dreams :man6:

John Wall went for 37 points, 4 rebounds and 5 assists tonight against Indiana. He looked phenomenal. He had a phenomenal game, other than at the free throw line. The Lakers need to pray this guy takes that 1 year QO. He would be our most electrifying point guard we have had since magic Johnson. He looks like he is finally learning to shoot from outside. Once he does that consistently, he will be a top 3 PG in this league next year.

If we get him great.
If we don't sign him the laker's cap is really messed up and we can go after Josh Smith and Bynum.

He would be perfect. Throw in Lebron and a resigned D12 and Kobe (mini-MLE) and trade Pau for KLove, that would be about as realistic as you could get.

My dream would be to get Andrew Wiggins to come off the bench. Wiggins/Clark/Hill and throw in Eric Bledsoe and this team is about as realistic as we can get.

I have insider information that says this is the exact plan Mitch is trying to put together. Remember I was the one who broke that the Lakers FO was getting TWC into their offices instead of DirecTV.

Jeff Goldblum @JeffyG
Sources confirm that a multi-team trade that will send Lebron, Love, and whatever draft pick Andrew Wiggins will be selected with to the Lakers is imminent once the off season begins.

:man10: Just got back from re-watching Jurassic Park in 3D. There was this one scene with Jeff Goldblum that seemed extremely familiar but I couldn't put my finger on where from. This post just reminded me though. I had totally forgotten about JeffyG's awesome inside info during the Dwightmare and all the amazing .GIFs/pics that were posted in his honor.

Fake Jeff Goldblum was sourced as having info on Dwight. Lots of images, lots of fake Tweets.

IMO he takes the 1 year QO- his agent know we're going to have MAX money and need that PG to pair with Dwight.

Shannon to some extent and Farmar. They weren't fantastic. They weren't Crawford or Bledsoe. But they're a hell of a lot better than what we have now.

I didn't think lamar was good shot creator, I mean more a Crawford type who can go 1 on 1 when the offense is broken. I didn't see that out of Lamar, farmar/brown I agree, we need something like those 2.

I'm still on the Wall bandwagon too.. Would the Wizards take on Nash & Pau if Wall told them he wasn't going to re-sign? Get athletic guys like Wall, Ariza, Seraphin.. Hopefully we look into something like that.

I don't know.. Nene/Pau is a really interesting fit. Especially with Nash back in control of an offense. Then they still have their future star in Beal. Could work for them, especially if Wall tells them he'll walk for nothing.
