Seriously, some people just can't accept the Lakers built a superteam for the next two years. Even their bench got a whole hell of a lot better with Jamison, Meeks, retaining Hill, and Ebanks should improve significantly as well....


Love Jordan Hill. Much better than McBob who is now in Orlando. Such a hard nosed player that will show up way more than the box score.

I loved McBob because he was an effort guy. Always was working trying to secure the rebound, or make the scrappy put backs. He's the one guy I wish they wouldn't have parted with in the trade. I'm still trying to wrap my brain around cutting Goudelock and CDR, and keeping Darius Morris and Duhon....

smh...

Like the "superteam" the Dodgers built? Nash & Kobe are done. Howard is overrated. LA will regret giving away Bynum for Dwight.

i must be in the minority but i like the deal. the rockets basically only game up one first rounder. the second one they recieved from toronto when they traded lowery. they had every intention of using that pick since they recieved it to trade for a player. i like a back court of lin and harden.

Lol get out of here with that trash. Nash is done? Kobe is done? Howard is overrated? Ok, guy. To call Nash done is one thing, but to call Kobe done is a whole other thing... if Kobe is done after a 28-5-5 season then I guess pretty much every player in the NBA is done.

To call Nash done is just as, if not more ridiculous. He is one of the rare guys that has got better with age. He doesn't know what he's talking about.

the lakers took a shot to be good/great for 2 yrs, bynum if he stays healthy can be a better person to carry a team than dwight. Howard is a number two since he cant be a go-to scorer, he is a putback pts kinda guy. obviously a great defender and rebound guy. Bynum is and will continue to be a guy you can throw into the post and get 23pts 9reb and a block a game, he is younger. but neither can stay healthy..... so point is kinda moot.

Nash, kobe, artest, pau, howard is the oldest starting lineup in the league, even more so than the aged spurs. There window is short and they have to find a way to stop westbrook and durant. In their lineup you see that is the 2 weakest defenders on the team at the SF and PG postion. as amazing as nash is on offense he is bad on defense, I personally think they were better of for the future with bynum but dwight helps more now.... the next 2 yrs the championships is going to be between the heat, thunder, and lakers in that order.

Good for Harden. I'm glad he didn't buy into the FO's bullshit about not being able to afford to pay the luxury tax and held out for a max deal.

I'm assuming that you are talking about the Lakers and Nash + Metta being their weakest defenders. I'm not really sure how you figure that SF is one of the Lakers two weakest positions defensively lol. Metta isn't a lock down defender these days, but he's still the Lakers best on ball defender and 2nd best overall defensive player (next to Dwight of course). A lot of people think that Metta is done, but he's in the best shape that he's been in since 2008 or 2009. I think that he'll be a top notch defender once again this season, instead of simply above average like last season.
