Not to mention I'm not a fan at all of who he is and his attitude.

I'd much rather try and get a backup at SF like Carlos Delfino. He would be perfect, but will likely choose a slightly bigger role with another team and or take more money else where. Same with Pietrius, who again likely wants more money, but that's what Jodie Meeks was saying and yet we got him on the cheap too.


I'm sure management would reassure that he's willing to play behind them when Dwight returns.

I'm pretty sure too, but I'm mainly nitpicking as to what possibly go wrong with that signing

I'm not sure exactly how you want to define efficiency, but you can't look at FG% alone (unless it is only convenient for one to do so). Based on last year's numbers, if you gave both players the same number of shots and FTs, Bynum would have produced more points. That makes him more efficient offensively.

That does not make sense. Production does not equal efficiency. Kobe Bryant can score 27 points on 43% shooting, but that wouldn't make him more efficient than Paul Pierce who scores 22 points on 45%. Efficiency is not dictated by output, it's dictated by the amount of output in comparison to the amount of work/effort (shots) being put into the equation.

Efficiency actually is dictated FG%.

OMG people who cares who's better on offense between Howard/Bynum? Bottomline Dwight is on our team and is the better fit/player. Drew I love him, but he's not a Laker anymore.

K-Mart could be a really big difference maker for us while Dwight is out.. Jamison can score but he's old & not very efficient.. & he doesn't play defense at all.. Him & K-Mart will be night & day in their roles.. Jamison - instant offense, K-Mart defensive stopper that gets points off put backs & oops.. We have Jordan Hill as the hustle rebounder, but he'll be the primary backup at Center while D12 recovers.. God forbid we suffer an injury to any of those 3.. Then we're depending on Clark or Sacre for serious minutes.. They've already went all out.. I don't see why you'd take that risk with our frontcourt when you can just spend another 1.5 or whatever & guarantee our success.. Gasol/Jamison/K-Mart/Hill can handle an unexpected injury & not cause us to lose a ton of games..

I expect Dwight to start in the opener. Be positive.

I don't like douchebags on our team, Lakers are all about class.

Well if those are his options, right now I can't imagine anyone picking the Knicks over the Lakers in their right mind.

I hope he chooses the Knicks...... he belongs on a team with Melo and Stat..... Not on one with Kobe....

If he does come here they need to make sure that mom of his isn't allowed in the building.....

Reasons you don't want Martin....

1.) Earl Clark brings the average age of team down

2.) He's a "fugazy"

3.) Crazy stalker chicks would stab D12

4.) He's a freak
