^ Not if we get rid of Blake. :man10:

But I am optimistic that we can at least have a fun season, if not a successful one.

Damn you real, bringing me down from my Morris gone forever high in your own optimism thread. I refuse to believe we bring him back, if we trade Blake maybe we sign Bobby Brown, anyone but Morris.

Sorry Weez. :man10:

I think Morris is a last option, that's why we didn't extend a QO to him. I think we try to go in another direction first.

^ Who knows? I don't think they signed Farmar for crap minutes. I think he has a significant role.

But with Blake on the roster, I'm not sure how that'd work. Unless they plan on moving Blake to SG, it doesn't make much sense. And if they DO move Blake to SG, then they'll have to have another PG/SG, right?

Morris is very much in the mix. :man10:

Sorry fellas. Just got to be honest, though right? Who knows. Maybe they don't plan on playing Farmar much?

I happen to think that they'd like to move on from Morris. I think they'd rather go in another direction depending on who they can get and for how much. But if none of that works out, they'll settle for Morris again.

I can't see them going through the trouble of buying Farmar out of his overseas contract to not play him much. At least I hope not, he's backup PG material, not 3rd string, rot on the bench Morris material.

Say that's true.

Then what do we do with Blake? Are we comfortable with Meeks playing heavy minutes?

Sadly I can see Blake being our SG. Brown played him there before, 'Antoni has played him there, I can see it happening. I'd prefer to see him traded or amnestied over Metta though. Traded for a pick, traded for a cheap SF so we can then amnesty Metta, bring in Sasha at SG, I don't know, just throwin stuff out there.

I agree. Which leads us to the horrifying conclusion...

We need a 3rd string PG. :man10:

I'm optimistic about next season. I'm not expecting much; let's just have a fun season and surprise the hell out of everybody with how good we play...

Alright! Alright! Cocaine brownies! :man10: I may be the only one that gets this reference, but I can't hear the name Bobby Brown without picturing this. I don't know how anyone can watch this and not crack up

You know, considering what a nightmare of a season we had last year with injuries, coupled with the severe chemistry issues now coming to light, I'm thinking we'll actually have a better season this year if we stay relatively healthy.
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.

1.Amnesty Metta
2.Bring Farmar
3.Bring Nick Young
4.Bring Caveman
5.Diva12 is out of town


Lamar is on his way, and i hope CDR will show what he can do in summer league, so we can find place for him on roster, dude is 6-7 210lbs, he can play at three easily.
The second place means you're the first loser

Lower expectations... Actually, the public perception I sense is that this crew will be downright horrid. It will take time integrating the pieces but I think the Lakers will be more than competitive.
