ARTEST and MARION 1st.....RJ is walking injury all he ever is is injured.....
And you now have a 3 year deal with 42 mil same as you ahve with Lamar, albeit, you might get more balanced production from RJ, but Lamar is a freak, can ball like guard, post up, rebound....
You are losing a little not gaining a little....
Artest and Marion are pipe.
Artest told Marc Stein he's not going to accept the MLE. Marion is in the process of re-negotiating a contract which will keep him in Miami. That leaves the Lakers with RJ.
At this point, I don't think they'll even try to get RJ. He's too expensive and hurts us financially. I think Mike Miller may end up being the option since he's cheaper and wouldn't be asking for a whole lot of money once his contract expires. The Lakers are probably comfortable with Ariza as their defensive player.
Agreed with everything here.. Miami seems like they are going to lock Matrix up..
SAS was on the radio yesterday and said he spoke to Ron Ron and there's no way he's going to accept the MLE. Ron said he's never been paid like he deserves, and his next contract will pay him what he deserves.
I would welcome Mike Miller or RJ. To me Miller's defense is in question, but offensively.. wow he would fit in perfectly. He's a smart player who can hit a shot from anywhere on the court.
