Thanks man. NBA.com has the game archived already.

Sun Yue is playing a critical role in this mini comeback. A nice putback to tie it up at "70" and several indirect assists down the stretch!

It will be interesting to see how this kid turns out.

Go Sun! Go Lakers!!

Yi with a game-winner himself. Who helped set up the play? Sun Yue!

Box score doesn't reveal much. I enjoyed his performance down the stretch.

Great finish! CLE goes down to Team China!

Go Lakers!

Will he beat out Farmar for the starting position? Hmm...

Time will tell.

Go Lakers!


I wouldn't jump the gun on that yet, I'd feel fortunate if we get some minutes from him this season instead of being over in the NBDL all year.


Nah, he is a player...don't look for a huge dropoff out of him...he will be starting by Christmas...if not before.

:man13: I think we may have found ourselves something special. It's hard not to be so excited about the Crit :man11:

Seriously though, it was an awesome debut. I can't wait to see this guy play some more. I can't get enough Crit!

JCrit is finally showing we can have an aggressive PG...


Farmar tho...that was terrible...hopefully he will hit back strong the next game...

this kind of performence against SPL talent is unaccaptable and lowers his trade value.

I think its fine for us to start getting excited... as bad as we've been at the point, its great to see someone out there playing inspired ball.

To be fair, I think he was used alot as a 2 in this game, but being that he averaged 5.8 apg in college (against stiff competition) in only 31 mpg, we shouldn't worry too much about his assists in this game (it also doesn't hurt that he's 6'5' and a high flyer).

It's a great thng to get at #19 the guy that was projected on all the mocks at #14.

Its something to "start" getting excited about, but there's alot more that has to happen this summer yet (and will)...

oh absolutely...Crit certainly is very exciting but he is not enaugh to keep Kobe happy and give the fans the much needed boost before next season.


Crittenton tho...the guy has some serious size if he can translate his playmaking to the NBA. He made some pretty crisp passes, especially the outlets were absolutely on target a couple of times. I like what I saw. He has the tools that Jordan Farmar lacks a little bit (the physical part of the game).

I personally think something will happen, it simply has to, otherwise the Lakers have definitely simply failed as an organization.

Absolutely! We are two solid moves away from keeping Kobe (and the fans) in Staples. KG, as we all know, is almost for sure not happening..(we've been wishing for years), so I'm thinking JO is very attainable for what we've got to trade, plus one or two others by trade and MLE, maybe Fish or Francis for chump change to mentor our young guys.. and we're in business.

I think we all know, its not aquestion of "if"... its "when". Like him or hate him, we should all thank Kobe for forcing the issue... even if it coulda been done with more tact..

mo williams?

^ Regardless of how well Crittenton plays in the SPL, if we don't throw the full MLE at Mo Williams, I'll be pretty disappointed.

We have to at least "try".. It may not be enough though. Crit is a great pickup...but, yeah, don't look for rook to save the world first year.

Is Mitch smart enough (do you think he even has it on his priority list) to physically sit down with Mo (like Riley did) and discuss his future and possibly the MLE? I'd be surprised if he did all that, he'd need to if we even want to have a chance at Mo... then again, I think Mo is looking for (and can get more) than MLE-type money. God I'd be happy if we got Mo though. I wonder if he's a city-guy (LA).

Did ya catch the replay? :man9:

^ You're probably right, I doubt Mo will accept the MLE. But it's happened before ... hopefully we get lucky.

By the way, anyone think Jeff Graves (#33 with headband) moves like Kwame a bit? :man10:

It's not even about Mo accepting it (yet). Do you think Mitch will even try?

mo williams?


That's the bottom line...I've supported Kobe through everything that he's been through and I was on board when he did what he did this time. My only hope was that it didn't damage the psyche of AB. If we get legitimate, productive activity out of the FO, some fire out of Bynum and Odom and some smart trades and acquisitions...I think we have the makings of a successful off-season.

Agreed.


It's really not about "saving the world" at this point. Yeah, there needs to be a couple vets added to the squad but we really aren't that far from fielding a very good mix of players. Crit will not have a problem picking up the offense, he can move over to the 2 when necessary and he can create offense for himself and others. Being in Atlanta, I've had the opportunity to follow his career from High School and he's excelled at both levels and even though I've liked both the Farmer and Bynum picks, neither one will have the impact that this pick has. If he's given the opportunity to play that Smush was, I see him as a 13 - 5 player this season. Last night's game was just him doing what he does. I'm not worried about the free throws, he should stroke them better next game.

I think the FO needs to use the MLE wisely...if they go after a point guard Francis wouldn't be a bad move IMO simply because he is talented enough to come in and provide an immediate impact. Also, I believe that he and Crit would push each other in practice. As for Mo Williams, of course you'd like to bring on a player of that ability but it's isn't as necessary as it was before the draft. I think we could benefit from a player like Andray Blatche or another active, athletic big patrolling the paint from the weakside and getting out on the break, if he's available. Not a big move but an effective one IMO.
