You must be gamble to intact your Players again.You need to win for another Championship series.Then why not sacrifice to pay back odom/ariza/Brown as one of your starter players. Remember,Brayan can easy to unite your players to go in the basket.Only my suggestion !

to most people, basketball is a game, have fun playing the game that you love, enjoy the life style you earned from the game. money comes and goes, but memories or forever. how much money does one need, playing a game that you love or would be playing anyway, even if you where not a pro.

I hope we keep them all and if we do I know we will have another title! Go Laker's!!!! Thank you for giving us a wonderful season and another title. With everything going on in the world right now and with the economy being the way it is, it was nice to have something bring us joy. I hope the players know that and make a few sacrifices to stay with the Lakers and bring L.A. another title and give all Laker fans a reason to cheer and forget some of what is going on in our world.

Let's not forget it's a business. If you only have so much money, you have to pick and choose who can stay and who can go. You will always have the greed of the individual player. Basically we can only offer so much. If they want to take the big money, then enjoy your life in Toronto or Minnesota. Please remember that Ariza and Brown are role players. Do they really deserve that kind of money. Also, there are plenty of 6'10" power forwards available who might take less. Would the be less effective in the triangle? I say, do like fish and go get your money then come back when you arrive at your senses!

You talk about signing Lamar, Trevor, and Shannon which is great. But can't we get rid of other players via trade to open up more money. You need to see which teams may be interested in Sun Yue, Adam Morrison, Josh Powell, and even Andrew Bynum.

Dr. Buss can make more sacrifices as a multi-millionaire than his players. For Buss it's only a question of how much of his profits he's willing to forego in order to sign these guys.
