We have Howard induced paralysis..... once the big undecided gets his fill of leading Sports Center updates he will tell everyone where he's taking his 50% free throw % and we can then react and see if there is anything left other than cast-offs left for us to take.

I'm indifferent to D12 staying. But, I don't see what the backup plan is. I don't see how the "2014 Plan" will payoff. Worst, I don't yet trust jimmy's leadership as far as the direction of the franchise.

I'm at the point now where I'm hoping we are in the 2014 lottery for Wiggins and just start fresh from there.

Bump

Earl Clark signs two-year deal worth $9 million with Cavaliers

This is what I was talking about in regards to Dwight yesterday. The Lakers cant make any moves at all until Dwight decides and now we lost Earl Clark. asdpofiuaspdfuasdof

Another awesome clueless move by our organization ... He isn't all that but still can improve ... AND you know he fits today's style of play ...

It's Dwight's fault we didn't give Clark 4.5 mil per season? :man3: Get real people, the guy had a great stretch here and then fell off hard, he's not worth 9 mil 2 years, Cleveland overpaid and good luck to them and good for Earl, glad for him. We could not give him more than 2-3 mil, and he was not worth more than that, if proves me wrong next season, great, but most likely he turns into Ariza after he leaves here, forgotten and bricking shots left and right. You guys that are mad have got to be joking, had we given him 4.5 mil per season people would be screaming we overpaid and what a dumb move my Mitch in the middle of next season when he would have inevitably hit a slump.

^I would agree with that assessment. He had one good stretch in his entire NBA career in which has been a model of inconsistency since is time in Phoenix & Orlando. WTS, I would have liked to keep him; nevertheless, with this new CBA, you have to use be cautious with with who and how you spend your money...

What in the flying hell are people complaining about now? This has nothing to do with Dwight or our front office, there's now way we could/should pay Clark $4.5 million per year.

I'm sad he's gone and would've hoped he'd come back to us for cheap, but happy for him that he found such a good contract offer and I hope he lives up to it in Cleveland.

4.5 M is a little more than expected but it's not like every player on this roster minus Hill isn't overpaid ... and Clark , unlike the others , is young and athletic

Good for him, he's not worth that much on this team. Not sure why he wants to go play for Brown though. I figured he was gone when he met with them in consecutive days.

With all the SFs we were targeting, it doesn't surprise me he's out. Kenyon Martin...come on down.

$4.5mil/yr is not that bad for Earl and besides we could've afforded him since we have his bird rights. We have no athletes on the wing now.

Overpaid. No way we pay him 4.5M. Good guy, works hard, but he is not worth that money. I wish him all the best.

This absolutely. Weezy too.

Good for Clark. He got himself a big offer for no reason from a team that is stacked at the position he plays. Good for him. I wish him well. He's not worth 4.5 million for two years. He's worth 3 million or so tops.

We are ridiculously over the cap. You don't pay a bench guy that has been average at best his whole career that had maybe 2 months of impressive play 4.5 million dollars to take a chance. You take a risk at 2-3 mil, not almost the full MLE. When you take a risk like that based on a little flash of good play in a contract year you can end up with Deaven George and Luke Walton.

Man you're freaking out over Earl Clark. a guy who only got a shot this year by accident. He had a good stretch, but dude is not worth 4.5 mil here. Take a step back, take a breath, and think about what you're this pissed about, what the Lakers didn't do. They didn't overpay for a player you can kinda replace easier than a lot of others, and Earl Clark is not going to be the difference in a championship for us. Go back and watch his last month of the season and playoffs, where he couldn't hit the ocean if he fell off a boat, then tell me we made a huge mistake not gambling with big money for him.

i am just disappointed earl left for $, when he said he really didn't care that much about the $. he isn't worth what he got in CLE, but now we have another void to fill. and if earl clark doesn't even want to stay, what about dwight?
