The Lakers should have kept Turiaf, and traded off
Chris Mihm. Bad move for La La land, but Being from Boston I love It. Kobe they did it to you again.

Turiaf leaving is a start he did not help out much in the points department.The next one to go better be Luke Walton, actually he should have gone first.

it's all over, the Lakers will never win the championship next year. They might as well start rebuilding today.

nice player, really nice guy, but no way a guy maybe 3rd of 4th off the bench worth 4 mil a year. Take the money and run, thsm will not hurt the Lakers.

The Warriors need to develop the game in the paint.
Having two different players at C/PF, one who finesses the ball and the other who's got the heft
and the energy, both of whom fit into the Nelson game is the right way to go. To the Lakers, he's not worth the money, but Turiaf might just be a building block that fits in the Warriors rebuilding.

Oh, yes, because Ronny was such an integral part of their success last year, and he did so much to get them through the playoffs and into the finals. His skill for benchwarming and pine-riding will surely be missed.

Ronny was a good decent player but, I don't think he is worth 4 million a year either. The Lakers losing him will not destroy the team. He made his decision and the Lakers made there's.

Radmonovic is a great player, don't get rid of him. Walton on the other hand is a lazy piece of crap.

When are the Lakers ever going to learn that Mihm just doesn't have the health or the skills to make any worthwhile impact for the Lakers. Thought they were soft in the finals this year? Mihm will make the frontline soft as a marshmellow.

If somebody can refi the deal on their home loan, why can't NBA refi their deals? Odom should reduce his deal from the over-priced $14 million a year he was getting down to about $8 million.

Ditto. It's all over. The sky is falling ! May the Lord bless U Roni. You're always a Laker in our hearts. If 1/10 of the league had 1/10th of your heart and passion, the world would be a better place for it.

Peace on your journey brother. Maybe it will come full circle. It can happen (see Fish). Catch me when U settle in at www.pvforeclosures.com and we'll turn that 17 into 25.
