<quoted text> Yea that big contract Pau has kills a lot unless there is a three way some how. Not sure but he is eating up too much for nothing really. Unless something miraculous happens
Actually Sammy Pau has clause that if traded they have to pay him a big chunk of $$ in cash, just like Odom did in his contract when L.A. got him from Miami.

That makes it even harder to trade, the team that gets him gotta pay that cash, that could turn off teams from wanting him.

I say fire D'antoni and bring in Sloan its that simple. I said Sloan all along.
Hmmm I like that thinking.

How similar is Nash game to Stockton's game?

One thing is favor is that Nash is a mature player, so are Gasol, KB, and Artest.

These are no excuses players, plus a young Howard could make this very interesting.

I would love to see what Sloan can do with deep talented squad, not just three players keeping the whole team full of below average player glue together.

Sammy except for the clippers it will come down to market $$$, is not the first time we see this and season and half later players become free agents and bounce to where $$$ is at.
Clippers is even worse they just didn't want to pay $$$, cause the market is big enough for clipps and Lakers.
If they keep paying the salaries and bringing the talent they will stay as top squad for seasons to come.
Dollars aside RR, I knew the clipps since I watched them in Buffalo . They were always crap period. I wasn't discussing accounting figures just merely the fact that the weaker teams are replacing the slots of the traditional stronger teams. However you just answered the reasons why.

ok sure, now besides clips explain GSW, Memphis, Dallas, phoenix declining, OKC rising each year? of course it evolves around moola but OKC is not exactly big city LA. Dude the divisions are changing no matter how you look at it. You can't debate that.

Well Sloan could be a bit rusty now.

<quoted text> Question though, If those guys are playing so well as you say then explain the record? Forget the system that's only a part of the equation as some would say age. Secondly, Knicks are old? Really? Is it because Sheed shoots up the average? Just wondering. If I look at the Knicks bench I wouldn't say they are old and that brings the average back down. Just my take.
Last I heard they were one of the oldest teams in the NBA, Individually nash, howard and kobe have played well, they just haven't put it together as a team, I hope that makes sense.

Well You said it BUFFALO!!!...lol

Well my point is that we seen this before, how weaker team are replaced stronger teams, until free agency hits and they lose all their key players to the bigger markets and they go back down.

Clipper being the exception since they could had avoid it, ever since they arrived in L.A.

Well since You ask I will.

All these teams are full of young talent with small $$ contract, once these young players hit free agency.
All these players are going after their big contract, forcing their teams to concentrate on who they want to expend their big money on, the rest are not going be able to resign them for big cash and that's when the big market team step in take all that young talent from them.

OKC, had the two big pieces in Westbrook and Durant before they move to OKC that's why they are doing well right now, but for the same reason they lost Harden they can't keep adding big talent to their squad can't afford having some many big contracts.
You gotta give credit to their GM, plus aside from the thunder what else is there in OKC to compete for fan base?

Another good example is Portland, you take out the Blazers an what else is there to compete for fan base?

Yeah I understand, but these Lakers team is old school, I don't see a huge gap in ages.

Sloan is the type that likes D and play hard no excuses, I don't think he is not rusty enough yet.

At this moment this what is happening it has happened in the past before and then all these teams lose their talent to the big market and they go back down again.
There may be a exception to the rule like when Kings stayed competitive for while, but that was soooooo long ago.

Lakers are in unique situation call D'antoni suck balls system, You take the Lakers out the black hole and they could be doing a lot better, the talent is there in my opinion is not being utilize correctly.

For sake of my point let's wait until the next big wave young free hit the market and You will see how quick the big markets will take them away.

<quoted text>So if we deal Gasol what players are out there that we can get him for? Like we all know Pau has skills and like you said his skills are just being wasted right now. Also Howard is not healthy at this point since the back surgery which has slowed his defense down. D'Antoni in my opinion will not be the coach after next season even if they make the playoffs because this team looks like what their record is which is the 11th spot in the west. David Stern and now Lakers management has cost the Laker dearly with not getting Paul and not getting Phil. Who knows what's going to happen next lol.
rudy gay :) reunite pau with memphis...ya its a pipe dream

While I was in L.A. this weekend, I spoke with 4 @Lakers that told me the team dedicates only 15-20 minutes of practice time to defense

Chip Kelly thinks he's going to be the Pats next coach! He'll hold out until BB retires. Cohwer said not for another 4 years.(there's that Pittsburgh connection again) Saban's still riding the Tide's high after the Championship. At least, so far, they are going for quality coaches. What can you tell me about Bruce Arians, the Colts OC? Looks like he might be in the running.
Seriously, you're going with Houston? OMG If the Pats lose to them, I won't watch any more of the playoffs. lol I'm sure the spot you got is really close to the field, since your team went home earlier. lol j/k with you and your very lucky coach.
Cavs have lost Andy V for 6-8 weeks ... split quadriceps surgery! Maybe that will help make Tyler Zeller become a better center. lol
To be honest with you I really don't think CHip Kelly will leave the Irish because he actually has made Notre Dame relevent and also his style of coaching won't work in the NFL. As for Burce Arians I'm not really sure because we both have seen a lot of coordinators of really can't cut is as a head coach. The % of them actually being able to are very slim. I'm not going for Houston because I don't see them beating the Pats in New England. The Pats will lose in the AFC title game to Denver which will be in Denver and Mannings last ride. Brady vs Manning one more time and I see the Broncos going to the Superbowl. I hope lol. Rex should have been fired when the season ended.

<quoted text> ahaha maybe. Well look at the Lakers, Suns, Dallas these days. They should be filling spots of GSW, Memphis and Clipps. So yes it has turned around.
IK agree because it's like a huge rotation right now. Also I know these other teams are very happy they get to beat up on the Lakers for a change lol. Pandas are going to be a tough out this year. Clippers, I hate to say, are in that same boat also.

Yes very sad indeed, cause it's not utilizing the whole potential of this squad, phil's system was better for these players.
Lakers could play inside out game and run of their defensive stops, instead of jacking up 3's and take their bigs of the game.
Phil system would have been better, but what would have happen to Steve Nash? Do you think Nash could have made adjustment to his game? The good thing is that he can hit oope shots if he had to. The Lakes right now don't have a identity and we all know their best chance at winning games is running a half court offence using their bigs. It's a complete mess right now, but still have a lot of games left to be played. First things first we have to get all the players back healthy.
