Already posted a long farewell message a page or two back, but I'll just add it sucks the announcement of Young's signing comes is coupled with this unfortunate official announcement.

Guess that means Blake HAS to be on the move via trade.

Huh, I honestly didn't know what to expect up til it happened. In guess maybe Young will play the 3 now? Wonder if any other signings are lined up for the SF position. I'll always apprecoate his contributions to the 2010 title, game winner against the Suns, 3 pointer in game 7 vs the Celtics and his defense on Pierce.

Crap. These past few days I was actually getting up hopes that it wouldn't happen. But it was pretty much an inevitability once he picked up that option. Damn. I'm really going to miss Ron Ron MWP. :man6:

I'm more sad than I thought I'd be... I had finally gotten used to the idea of him being around still...

I wonder what we do to fill out the SF spot then? Unless we're running super small ball all the time.

Expected...doesn't mean I'm happy about it. Maddening and endearing all at the same time. Thank you Ron/Metta for four years. Will ALWAYS be a Laker to me.

If MWP becomes a free agent his top two choices will be the Knicks and Clippers.

I know he loves LA and all, but please don't go THERE. Rather him go NY/IND/CHI for a year and then come back here for the vet min.

To say the least, next season's locker room will be much different. AK RT @MettaWorldPeace: Mitch Called me first.. Thanks


no question. The locker room will be a lot more quite :man5:

How much can the Clippers give him? Don't people under the cap get first dibs?

...not an ideal scenario. New York could use a defensive presence and he gets to be home. Rivers though can be persuasive.

I don't like this move at this point. I feel like we could squeak into the playoffs. I figured Nick Young would start at SG for Kobe until he comes back. But now that MWP is gone, I guess Young will start at SF? Who the hell is going to start at SG until Kobe comes back?! Meeks? Blake? Eh.

Yeah, but I mean why do we want to just sneak into the playoffs when the worse we do the better our draft pick is? We're not exactly playing for a title this season, so paying to keep Metta just wasn't likely. I don't want us to ever tank, that's not what I'm saying, I just mean the Lakers aren't trying to play big luxury taxes for a maybe 8th seed roster.

Power of Lakers: Artest came in as a "loose cannon" w/ baggage, leaving as champion, mental health activist. Perform in LA, sky's the limit.

I really hope some team under the cap picks him up, I know for a fact he will run to Houston if he becomes an unrestricted free agent. He may talk of NYC but he loved LA and HOU far far more

...sometime in the summer of 2014 after the Laker season comes to a close. Bryant in the shower will hear a familiar voice "Pssst, Kob, I can help you win a championship!"
