My thoughts exactly.
Some of you really overrate Prince as your number one option to get for Odom, yes he is somewhat of a hometown boy, that's nice & all, & he's a cool guy, etc.. but don't let those things sway you so much, of course indeed he is a fabolous player as well, but I truly believe RJ would help us out in a lot more important ways & with greater toughness in certain areas we lack, not saying by any shot he's a better defender than Prince, but he's solid and can be close to great when he puts his mind to it & wants to be, especially with that athleticism. Prince's outside shot to me just seems awkward and too inconsistant to me at times. I've seen on several occasions where the defense makes the adjustment, kinda like on Odom most of the time, & just dares him to shoot outside cuz they know what he really wants to do is just go inside, too predictable, & then he'll start clanking shot after shot from the outside.
For those who don't have the benefit, well I don't know, but I personally HAVE league pass, and if you do, and you watch a lot of NBA games in general cuz you're a pure basketball fan as well, then you would've probably seen a good dose of the new jersey nets this past season & seasons before & followed this guy somewhat. I think unfortunately, & to those who don't have it, not exactly your fault, you don't know any better, but some people are kinda' just makin' statement based off of reputation & who SOUNDS more exciting or gets highlighted more & displayed by the media, which would obviously be prince, & oh because jefferson is on a not so good team doesn't necessarily diminish much from him in comparison to prince, PRINCE just has WAY BETTER overall teammates and a BETTER team. RJ doesn't have much control over that. Anyway, my point is, if you TRULY know basketball & actually watched a ton of this guy's games, not just when they play the lakers, but league pass & other stuff, then I can't see how you can't be more excited about the prospect of getting RJ instead of Prince.
37 % 3pt (Almost 40)
Gets to the Free Throw line At least 8 Times a game, by far would be the closest to Kobe & shoots em' at 80%.
Played & started ALL 82 games last season.
Attacks the basket with reckless abandon, physical, tough, can post up, has a fade away, can create for himself, shoot the mid range shot as well as the 3, athletic as hell, dunking machine, fastbreak, runner, slasher, tenacious, etc.
We could finally have our number two bonified scorer on the close to the wing to help Kobe. Yes Bynum & Gasol will do their thing, but this is a different kind of threat, a pure bonified scorer that can create for himself in a lot more ways than Odom offensively imo AND Prince.

in that order
for anyone who watches more than laker basketball you know that is the correct order
Whole Post Quoted For Truth, ESPECIALLY that last line. You know what's up. I'm sure you must have League Pass or something like myself.
