Well You just describe all the bigs in the league with the inconsistency thing including Howard.
I don't know what a good deal for him would be at this moment, since the Lakers are looking forward to all their contracts to expire for the free agency of 2015.
Well one I know I will not change your mind about pau you like the guy a lot, I like him too but cant stand that you need to motivate him to play hard, and his defense is terrible, I know bynum and odom had to be motivated too, but at least they could play defense pau was terrible especially at center, always said that.

I wouldn't deal him just to deal him, but if the lakers feel there is a good deal out there, now is the time. I don't think the lakers are looking forward to pau and howard walking away without getting anything, if pau agrees to come back for significantly less money then I can get off his back, but hes getting paid too much right now.

Well lakers played 3 good quarters then in the fourth decided to start taking long shots and went away from the post, got them selves in running game and got their head handed to them.
The only thing D'antoni has done right is let the players change the offense up, it seems like this team is coaching it self, what a sad year...HOwever I still gotta give mike brown some blame he had the whole off season and he came up with crap.

Well his size and skills are very valuable in today's NBA, he is getting up there in age and he still have some value, I like that value playing on my side that against me, You gotta take what You get.
I see it like this, Tim, Pau, Andrew,Dirk and Dwight are the only real skill big guys out there, every one else either mediocre or has some real issues that You don't really want nothing do to with.

The deal has to be really good, but I can't think of anything realistic worth parting with Pau.

Yeah Brown did screw up by getting all caught up in his quest for Princeton offense of bust!

I agree they are doing their own coaching and that's what Phil used to make them do and won titles like that.

From today's game I'll take the 3 first quarters as a positive sign,'cause before they would be so far behind after 3 quarters they it was embarrassing, yeah they had collapse in the 4th but it's part of this work in process in row games, they loss focus.

Phoenix is going to a retro black and orange uniform that game. They were worn on their road games. They were popular with their fans, enough so that they changed their court to those colors.

Wouldn't retro for them be more Blue with the western ok coral font? Think back of the Paul Westphal days.

I will have to take a look. I have to laugh at Shaq and the boys tonight. They said, Memphis is crazy to trade Gay at this point, they should have waited. They look horrible tonight. Well its all good for us. I hope he puts an end to one point losses.

I'm glad you are happy with the trade. Nobody knows the Raptors as well as you.

Cavs are happy with Speights and Ellington. Selby got sent to Cavs D league Canton Chargers. I really don't know what we're going to do with all these draft picks. I'll send ya a link sometime regarding what all they have collected.

Got the Super Bowl coming up Sunday. Do you all up north get into it like we do? It's close to being a holiday. lol I'm rooting for San Francisco.

yes B. Its bigger than our own league CFL. As you know we are tring to get a team here. When the Bills play home games its a sell out 60,000 plus. Every food store has some kind of Superbowl display. Wow didn't realize they sent Selby down. Is Canton far from you? D league I hear can be quite entertaining. I sometimes catch games on NBA tv. I like to see ex nbaers trying to climb there way back like Jamaal Tinsley. He tore up the D league last year.
Yea I know my Raps. One thing I notice is Bryan Colangelo always tries to obtain Raptor Killers example Anthony Parker, Jarret Jack and now Rudy Gay. We could have had Gay before over Bargnani.

Yeah, I remember you talking about Buffalo quite a bit. I haven't heard much lately, but I know Buffalo fans will be devastated to lose their team.

Canton (including the Football Hall of Fame) is only 20 minutes from here. Saturday the HOF will be announcing the new inductees. We went to the ceremonies for Jerry Rice and Emmit Smith when they went in.

Well, I still got some tree and shrub orders to get in, so talk to ya again.

What the lakers probably just need is role players who fit, they have enough star power, the point is I only make a deal for pau to improve the lakers, otherwise just hang on to him.

Lakers have found a system that works, the problem is time is running out, I think they were a bit tired, and they let their guard down, I still think they would have won with Dwight, but I think when he went out that just let the air out of all the lakers, this team does not have anyone who can play good interior defense.
