Lol Howard said they gotta play like they like each other. I definitely don't see him coming back next year.

Oh well, it's not like he is making a big difference out there...

You Laker fans should be more appreciative of Pau Gasol. You would'ntve won those last 2 chips without him. It's tough for any big man to thrive playing next to you know who.

Yeah, I'd imagine that as a big it'd be tough playing next to Nash since he likes to spread the ball around and in antoni's system it is usually spread around on the outside.

Lakers should trade Dwight to Dallas for Dirk + a backup

Moves Gasol to the low post, provides much better court spacing. Just commit to the 2 year title window and forget about trying to rebuild around Dwight later.

Dirk, Mayo, and Collison.

Make it happen Mitch!

If there is ever any news that Howard will not resign, trade him to the Wizards for their next 3 draft picks. Atleast the Lakers are guaranteed something in return. Unfortunately, the trade of Howard means 0 chance of Kobe ever winning another Championship.

Either way, Gasol helping win 2 championships has nothing to do with what he is doing now. It's no secret that he is playing like Charmin.

Wow I guess all of the reports of Dwight and Kobe feuding are true! Here is a picture that was obviously leaked from Kobe's twitter account!

Kobe is such a cancer. He takes out his coach and then turns his attention to Dwight and further injures his shoulder.

(Howard, Gasol, and Hill are out for at least the next week btw)

This season is abut Jim Buss.

Kupchak first master minded a Chris Paul trade which Stern vetoed.

Whatever.

Then Kupchak master minded the Howard deal.

Meanwhile Brown gets run out of town and due to ego problems Phil Jackson didn't come back, Dantoni was hired.

Dantoni is a square peg in a round hole for this roster.

At some point Doctor Buss is going to have to pull a Jerry Richardson and fire his kid.

Until then, the Haters are loving it.

Funny thing is that with Howard, Gasol and Hill all sidelined indefinately Antoni will be forced to field a small lineup his offense is made for.

Only the Lakers dont have the necessary parts.

I cannot believe how this season is turning out. Just hope Dwight finally gets 100% now.. & IF we make the playoffs we'll be scary. Just because that will mean we figured things out because we have too get on a roll to even make the playoffs.

    • There's merit is there is discrepancy between words and action.  For instance, Saudi Arabia not being held accountable as they are saying all the right things but doing the opposite of following through.
    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
