Should have started this a few years ago when we won titles  ;D  anyway, for the LA fans, who you want to see in the mix next season and for whom?  KG is a free agent, a little older but I think he would be a good addition if he wants to come to LA in place of Pau. 

Is Aaron Brooks a free agent?  Would like to see him in the mix at the point, not really sold on Sessions.

During the off season Kareem needs to work w/Bynum some more, he still missing some umph

If we can get Aaron Brooks and James Harden we will be legit! They could take anybody with the exception of Kobe and Bynum....and maybe Hill, he has potential.

Nobody ain post nutten bout that Steve Nash trade yet ;D If he stays healthy, we might stand a damn good chance but I still think we need one more explosive type player to keep up with dem OKC players.

One another note ah see de Knicks pick up Kidd to mentor Lin dey say, now they hadda try and keep Lin from going to Houston.

Serious?  Been so engrossed in the olympics did not see this.  Interesting, personally don't think the performance gap at center between Dwight and Bynum is our biggest concern to motivate a Dwight trade, I think we have a bigger gap with the other twin tower

Yep Olimpics kind of kept this in the background. So now is earthquate in the Staple center. Orlando just can't keep superstars, sorry for them. But I think it is the right thing to do. The impasse with the Magic management was becoming a next LeBron episode. Well we will see was KD and the Thunder are made of. Boy imagine if DH was on the US Olimpic team. Maaannn!

Soccerman yuh wha Harden,  :rotfl:, OKC not breakin up dat team, dey good to go.

Yuh see hoss, Harden gone to Houston as he rejected the $55.5 mil deal OKC offered him. I knew it would've been hard for them to keep him with the current CBA when they signed Durrant and Westbrook to blockbuster deals.

The sad thing is Houston only paying him $60 mil, I figured he could've made that with endorsements and such at OKC as they'll be a contender for years to come but I guess he wants to blaze his own trail. Hope this moves works out for him :beermug:

Mike Brown is ah shyt coach....all he good for is eating sunflower seeds.
If Phil had this team they would run through the west with the only possible obstacles being OKC and San Antonio.

Soccerman, hard luck on Harden, yuh was rite, I was wrong, in de end dollars talk.

As for this pre-season game vs Dallas, ah hear we was absent.  No seen, ah geh a tweet from Kobe after sayin there minds was on de east coast, so again, no seen, all yuh leave meh side alone, we still need to gel wid all de new additions.

Futbolfan, yuh rite, I eh no big Mike Brown fan, so if at de end ah dis season we doh challenge, Kupchak bette show him de door

We started 0-2 last year as well so I'm not too worried since we have 80 games to play. Was Nash firgure out how to orchestrate this offense and making passing to players in the spots they like, we go be rolling. I'm giving them until Feb or so to get everything sorted out, once we balling after de all-star break we go be legit!

Lakers will be fine... as long as they fire Mike Brown.

I having this same dialogue with a few clowns on FB... this whole "fire Mike Brown" talk.  Firing Mike Brown wouldn't improve the defense, wouldn't make the bench stronger and wouldn't make Kobe, Gasol, and Nash younger... and most importantly, wouldn't make Howard back better.  But it will make a bunch of people happy... and I guess happiness counts more than eventual results.

Yea we ain waste time atal...

Lakers fire coach Mike Brown

By Marc J. Spears and Adrian Wojnarowski | Yahoo! Sports


After losing four of five games to start the season, the Los Angeles Lakers fired coach Mike Brown on Friday.

Brown's agent, Warren LeGarie confirmed the firing, saying Brown had informed him of his dismissal.

It is unclear whether the organization will make a run at bringing back Phil Jackson, but one candidate prominently being discussed as a long-term possibility: Mike D'Antoni.

D'Antoni has been without a job since leaving the New York Knicks in 2011. D'Antoni had knee replacement surgery in the past couple weeks and not yet on his feet. Would still need time to rehabilitate before he could go back to work.

Indiana Pacers assistant Brian Shaw also could become a candidate though that's a dicier proposition, given the acrimony that ensued between the Lakers front office and Shaw after the team chose to replace Jackson with Brown over Shaw.

USA Today first reported Brown's firing.

In conversations held over the previous two days, Brown made a case to management that he could get the Lakers into championship contention, sources said.

Lakers ownership made clear that buying out the remaining three years on Brown's original $18 million four year contract wasn't an obstacle to making a coaching change.

Within the organization, there was a sense that Brown has frayed his connection to the locker room with long practices and game-day shootarounds, sources said. Brown began to address that issue recently with shortened sessions.

The irony is that Jerry Buss' son who runs the day-to-day operations of the franchise, Jim and not Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak was the primary advocate in the hiring of Brown and the firing of him. Kupchak was partial to Rick Adelman as a replacement, sources said. Nevertheless, the Buss family lost patience with the team's sluggish start to the Princeton offense, and didn't accept the excuses of a weak bench with such a star-studded starting five of Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, Dwight Howard and Steve Nash.

Nash is sitting out with a broken bone in his foot, and won't return to the lineup until later this month.

Fans love the move... most basketball people (at least those who are commenting publicly) panning the move.  Brown is very well-respected and many don't like what went down, but is Buss and dem ball.
