The Lakers will do great with Sun Yue. He will compliment Kobe and the lakers with his skills. He played great in the Olympics and will do well in the NBA.

This is a good signing for the Lakers. I think the Lakers should sign Shaun Livingston. It may cause a log jam at the guard position but they better their chances at getting at least two great guards to play in the front court with Kobe. The Lakers need to start looking at future replacements for Fisher and possibly Bryant (if he decides to go overseas). I also noticed that the Lakers will have some contract issues with Bynum and Odom this year. The wait and see game is a gamble but I hope it pays off. Don't be surprised if the Lakers pull off another mid-season trade. LAKERS will be in the 2009 NBA finals. But who will they play?

I can already tell you this guys not going to be that great, but he sure will sell alot of Lakers jerseys for Mr Buss in China. Great for the bosses bank account, not so great for the fans....actually he cant be much worse than "Borat" Radmanovic.

Sun Yue is a very nice, underated edition to this team. Phil will love this kid's game. He's smart, unselfish, athletic, can handle, AND play defense. I think it will take him less time than Sasha to get adjusted to the NBA, and his ceiling is MUCH higher than Sasha's.

Phil knows exactly what to do with skilled, big guards (Pippen, Harper) and he'll know how get the most out of this talented kid.

Sun Yue is a great addition to the LA team considering his ability to play multiple positions...he just have to improve his mid to long range shooting needed in the triangle...Shaun Livingston is also a potential good catch for the Lakers considering his height and experience playing the point...like Sun, he must have to improve his shooting and learn to post up against smaller guards...the possiblity of exploring a trade for marc gasol involving chris mihm and another player should be explored...LA needs wide-bodied physical players if they wish to go past the celtics...Laker's present lineup needs bulk and heft to match with the Hornets (David West), Spurs (Tim Duncan) and the Celtics (Garnett, Perkins, Pierce, Powe, PJ Brown)...the guard position is overcrowded as compared to the thin power forward position...i'm hopeful that the Bynum, Gasol and Odom troika will work out fine...

I think the Laker need to trade Omar Odom and somebody more consisten,because Omar when he want to play good he play,but look like he is lacy,the Laker need one good power forward.- other things,I want to comment about Laker and Celtic games,I don't see Koby play like he know how play,look like fix games.????.-

Dude what are You talking about the Lakers have a good PF is Pau.
Odom will be just fine in his new role of Small foward.
Another thing KB had problems with Boston cause, simply Boston had a more mature and better all around team,next season the Lakers will be a better squad with the addition of Bynum and Ariza to the team, people they didn't have in the last finals.
Plus Boston would not be the same team either they already lost some of their key players.
If they meet again the out come could be different since and undermen Lakers' team took them to 6 games a fulls squad may beat them for sure.

Dude, I don't think KB speaks Chinesse and he does great in China with sponsors, so don't worry beside they have him to get the support of the Chinesse community in L.A. he will be good player some day, but right now is all about Marketing.
