Yeah, whatever. Lamar is piece of the puzzle....but he can be replaced, maybe not by the effort of one, but by a few.

There's plenty of things about him we won't miss either.

s&t would be a :man2: because lamar could say i will not play for so and so. and we would be stuck.

Lee would be the only one on that list that I'd definatly want and wouldn't be such a huge downgrade from LO, and I think LO would agree to a S&T to NY because it's another big city/market.

If we got him I wouldn't be so mad about losing LO.

Really? Come on, I think some people are going a little far with this. Kobe still has Artest, Gasol and Bynum, we are still a top NBA team and a contender and Mitch could still make some moves. I think it's underestimating Kobe and Co. to say we're not winning it all again and Kobe will just leave, I'm not seeing that.

That's right. You have to replace him with a couple players, a scorer and a rebounder. One of the main reasons Odom's stock skyrocketed during last season is because he was our only reliable bench player outside of Shannon.

If we can get a couple of quality vets on the cheap, we will be fine. Now I'm almost certain that Morrison's expiring contract will be traded out.

If we're joking with offers, why not take a jab at Dice, too? I hope Kupchak is kidding with this jokes. Theo Ratiff is better than DJ.

Obviously we have some big time overreaction here.

We are still the number #1 team with Lamar or no Lamar. I don't think people will realize how big of an upgrade we got in Artest until the season starts. We have 4 legit scorers that can beat their man on any given play. All you have to do is manage them around the rotations and we will do great. The main thing is that at least one of them must be on the floor at all times, but preferably two at all times.

SA has was able to win with just their 3 and some decent Vets, I know LO is important to our team but I for the life of me can't understand "FANS" giving up on a trio of Kobe/Artest/Pau. I'm not even going to mention Drew cause we still dont know what we're gona get from him day in day out. But he can do anything close to that 1 week span before his injury I say we still have good shot. So now Drew as well as Vujabrick better step up next yr.

Are either of these guys a significant upgrade over Josh Powell? I really want LO back and they better be able to work something out.

I'm sorry but I don't believe anything this guy says.... I know we all remember two years ago when he said he was close to Kobe and he said Kobe would never wear the purple and gold ever again

the guy is a tanned moron... but anyways I would want the Lakers to talk to Matt Barnes maybe he would come back home for the vet min for a year... he would be a lot better than those 2 old guys

i'd rather ship his [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.] to chicago for kirk and noah

hinrich/fisher
kobe/brown
artest/luke
gasol/powell
bynum/noah

our bench would be pretty good with some some vet presence, a leaper, a gritty rebounder, a passer and powell who can shoot from mid range.

It's either that, Joe Smith, Tim Thomas, Ben Wallace, Chris Wilcox, Leon Powe, Oberto, Jamaal Magloire, Donyell Marshall, etc.

Those are some names that we might be able to get without paying top dollar.
