DHoward to Lakers Finalized! Four team deal

83 posts in this topic

Lakers could be great if Kobe realizes he doesnt need 25 shots and learns how to play off the ball.

Judging from the olympics he has a ways to go

This is not good for the NBA. There simply aren't enough talented basketball players for so many stars to be on the same team. They should start considering contraction.

This super team stuff is overblown. The Lakers have a 2 year window to win a title before father time catches up, Boston's entire run managed just one championship, and Miami isnt a dream team unless Wade finds some miracle cure for his injuries. Oh, and I guess I should mention Brooklyn's new lineup just to laugh at it.

Long term the Thunder and Bulls are still the best constructed team, and both built through the draft

Oh, and lets not pretend that the NBA is any different than it was 30 years ago when the Lakers and Celts were rolling out dominant lineups or 50 years ago when the Celts won every f*cking time

Actually the Lakers will have two players in contract come 2014, Dwight & Nash. You should check up on that 2014 class, it's better than 2010's. We'll have Dwight as the center piece, & money to blow. We're the Lakers... Everybody loves us. We'll get some great FA's and still be running the NBA like we have throughout our history.

King T seems scared as hell of this team btw.

Scared of what? LOL. LeBron's got the ring, you guys are CHALLENGERS. So if you wanna be champs you have to go thru the Heat. You guys want to be where LeBron and Wade are at right now. Depending on 34 and 38 year old backcourt, no shooters, and no bench, in a "Mike Brown Offense" good luck with that.

NO BENCH?!?!! HAHAHAHAHAHA I want what he's smoking.....so a 17 ppg player, a great shooter who plays excellent defense on the perimeter, good rebounding backup big, combined with a lot of young talent who will improve throughout the season isn't a decent bench??? I know it's not the best, but that's far from "no bench" ....

The Lakers are my 2nd favorite team but some of the Lakers fans in this thread really makes me dislike the team.

Why? Because we're calling a spade a spade. KT saying the Lakers have no bench after the offseason moves they've made is about as asinine as you can get....

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
