Somehow the Shawne Williams thread morphed into yet another Bynum thread. :man10:

Seemed like a good guy, but the first thing I thought was hallelujah!
One of those random players D'antoni got obsessed with for no good reason.
Every time I begin to ask, "Is he really as great as I think he is?" ...He proves that he is.
Every time I begin to wonder...He proves it...That is why I won't lose hope in him.
You know who I am talking about.

half of tonights backstage lakers was about shawne williams. i feel kinda bad that hes gone now. he talked about how hed like to raise his family in LA and how his brother died the day he committed to his college. he also talked about how the lakers calling him was one of the greatest moments of his life.

Doesn't it have to be awkward to get waived by a team, join their minor league team, get called up on only a 10 day contract, and know you will be let go again in no more than 20 days?

Seriously, why don't we just sign Manny Harris for the rest of the season, if we're bringing back Williams.

Apparently we're leaving a roster spot open for when we don't trade Pau for the 10th time... er I mean for in case we trade Pau.

next weeks backstage lakers has a segment about him being in the dleague. the week he got cut, they also had a segment about him. i bet they planned this all along. nick young just happened to get injured so it rushed things a bit. this gives them 10 days to trade pau and see if theyll have room to sign another player for the rest of the season.

well, that's another 100 000$ for Shawne, easy money, and it's only 20 days.
But i am not sure why we didn't gave chance to Terrence Williams, i always liked him, and he is also with D-Fenders i think?

He's shooting terribly from the field in the D-Fenders. Barely over 40%.

I'd also like to see Malcolm Thomas.

That does make sense, IF Pau is traded in the next couple weeks, and there's a free spot, then they can look at signing someone for the rest of the season if we still have the need.

This is too funny now. But welcome back, Shawne. :man10:
