CP3's knees

Forum rules
As you may have noticed, there are two new sub-forums in this forum -- Sourced Rumors and Trade and Signing Ideas.

All threads should go in one of these two places. And here is how you will determine where to post (this will also help you know where to look for particular threads):

All topics created in the Sourced Rumors forum should have a source (hence the name of the forum). State where you heard/saw the rumor and a link if applicable. Good sources would be an online article or a respectable blog by a member of the media. Radio reports or summaries from TV reports (ex. Bucher on ESPN News) are also accepted, but the staff will have a quicker trigger finger with regards to these two, especially if they are being posted by a member who's credibility is questionable or if no one else heard/saw the report. This is due to the fact that people often fabricate reports for various reasons. Only sources which directly mention the Lakers or a Lakers player should be reported in the Sourced Rumors sub-forum.

Trade and Signing Ideas: in short, this is where everything else goes. Suggestions of who the Lakers should sign or trade for. Reports of other teams' players being on the trade block. To differentiate these from general ideas/suggestions, please continue to use list the source in the title, just as we did with the sourced rumors prior to the creation of the sub-forum (ex. ESPN: Nuggets looking to move Melo). Such reports would not go in the Sourced Rumors forum because they do not directly relate to the Lakers and any discussion that the rumor would spawn would be speculation and trade suggestions. Any "inside" rumors from family, friends, or other sites should be posted in the Ideas forum. Once it is supported by a sourced member of the media, it will be moved to the Sourced Rumors forum.

If you are still uncertain of where to post your topic, post it in the parent forum, Lakers Trade Rumors, and it will be redirected by a staff member.

CP3's knees

Postby paulri on Fri Dec 09, 2011 10:50 am

I'm hoping that the Paul trade goes through, although I'd like to get some information from those who have seen Paul play, and know about his health:

What are CP3's knees like? Are they healthy?

Since we're at it, I haven't seen NO play that much at all. Is he really an awesome point guard? Over-rated? What do folks think here?

Since this is a sourced forum, here is an article that discusses the trade:

Just looked up his stats. He's started six seasons, and missed half the 09-10 season, and 18 games of the 06-07 season.

A remark I read led me to believe that he had missed a lot more than that. I know you can't always believe what you read. :freak2:

He is missing one of the main ligaments in one of his knees (the right one?). He's definitely an injury concern, but so is Kobe Bryant. Sometimes it doesn't matter.

Issue with Paul is that he has a pudgy build and as age increases he's more prone to adding weight in the upper body and that adversely effects any knee issues in the future.

You could say the same for Deron but he's enjoyed a clean bill of health for now and he relies a lot on his strength to overpower lighter PGs than Paul.
