if we had dantoni from the beginning or phil than barnes would have stayed and been balling since hes healthy.

would have been a solid backup to metta but we prob wouldnt have given clark a chance to show what he can do. i like barnes over clark just bc we need SF's but i guess mike brown screwed us in more ways than one.

glock will be okay. nothing amazing, but we need guards and duhon/morris dont have what we need apparently. i liked duhon and his playmaking and 3's but i guess glock can do more now. who knows. guess well see if he gets minutes or is just for insurance/practice

Man if we had any shot at signing that guy in the future I'd be thrilled, he's gonna be special.

Who should be our future PG in the purple and gold, damn I can't choose !

Any of those guys would be great.. Hard to say no to the overall game of Wall or Kyrie but Curry is going to go down as the best 3 point shooter in league history. Would be an amazing fit with Dwight.

Tracy McGrady will sign with the San Antonio Spurs for the rest of the season, league sources tell Y! Sports.

Now would be a good time for Lakers to pick up Delonte West. I have zero faith that Nash is coming back

i'd 100% be behind steph curry....were it not for that glass ankle of his. i can't help but think at some point in the future, that problem's going to rear its ugly head in a big way

True, but it's a risk you have to take if you can get him & not the others. Especially on that contract GS signed him to. Locked up 4 more years at 10.5 a year. I'll take that over Wall or Kyrie at the Max.

Chill: Any free agent that was bought out/released after the March 1st deadline is not eligible in making a playoff roster (ie Stephen Jackson).

D. West is eligible to sign and join a playoff roster.

That 15 number doesn't really even apply for the postseason.

By Thursday (if we make the playoffs), LA needs to send in a 12 man playoff list to league offices. There is no IR for the playoffs.

Just how important is it to get that list just right....recall when the Lakers met the Pistons in the Finals. Ho Grant was Malone's backup in the regular season, but just before the playoffs, he got injured and we didn't put him on the playoff roster. When Malone went down, guess who was next on the depth chart?

Curry and Dwight would smash! How do you defend that?

You play Curry physical until his ankle gives out... Same way you play Kyrie or Wall at this point.

There has to be some info that teams have that we don't, because that guy is better than the backup guards on multiple playoff teams. Is he just completely nuts now or what?

True, but then... you could say the same thing about Parker, Rose, Rondo, Nash and almost any good point guard (replacing "ankle" with the "knee" or "back" as you see fit), with the exception of Westbrook. That guy does not get hurt.

Yeah I feel ya. I'm just really concerned about that kid's ankles. I really think there's something bad cooking in there.

To pair with Dwight? He'd be excellent. I'd also like Rondo actually. Rondo would feed him in the half court, defend well for him on the perimeter, and while he can't shoot a lick, he'd cut and move and still have a positive impact on Dwight's game.

In the immortal words of Slava, "...yeah..."
Vitti uttered three words that surely applies to how Bryant made two free throws on one leg, walked off the court on his own and processed his rehabilitation plan amid the pain, frustration and tears.

“That’s really cool.”
