I agree D.A. about Stackhouse, too, he IS a cancer. No wonder Detroit wanted to get rid of him...But as far as Malone, don't forget deep down, he still wants to finish as the top NBA scorer all-time, passing Kareem, and that would mean he'd have to average something like 20+ points for the next 2 years....the way he talked in some interviews, for some reason, that seems to mean more to him than a ring.
I just don't think L.A. is the place for him. Like Deeohh512 said, he has GOT to figure out what it is he really wants. Also I am still not sure on Pippen...it all depends on Fox's condition...I think we should spend the $ on another PF, like P.J. Brown or J. Howard, and solidify our PG spot w/GP or Arenas.
