Buy or Sell
 
A little game based on the "Around the Horn" segment. When you have answered this question start another one and keep it going.

Buy or Sell: Lakers can make it back to the playoffs next year.

traditionone 06-20-2006 09:24 PM

Buy because the Lakers lost a lot of close games early in the year and that won't happen next season. They'll have a legitimate point guard who can defend. Kwame Brown will have productive season manning the center spot. Turiaf will bring hustle and energy. Walton, hopefully, will work on his perimeter shot. We'll be better than last season and if Odom is not traded and plays like he did post all-star break, we'll make the playoffs.

Buy or Sell
Lamar Odom will be traded before the season starts.

I'm going to change my buy or sell question.

Buy or sell
If Buss signed Shaq to a 30 million dollar per year contract and paid Kobe the max, would they have won another title?

Sell. It's almost a little late for him to win however I expect him to win 1 or 2.

Buy or sell: Laker's will win the division next year

Shaq + Kobe = 50 million dollars
That's basically eats up your entire cap.
Add in a few more players and you're at the luxury tax threshhold.
No way they would've won another title.

Sell. Phoenix is a regular season team, much like the Indianapolis Colts. They will win the division, but lose in the playoffs.

Buy or sell
The Lakers will make a blockbuster trade (*cough* Odom *cough*) before the season starts.

LakerFan1086 06-21-2006 11:31 AM

Sell. Our GM said not to expect any big moves this off season. There are only a few trades that could work and none of them seem very likely to happen. Just expect a few signings like marcus banks, a big man, and maybe a back up sg/sf but nothing too serious.

Buy or Sell
The Lakers will have a better record than the Clippers next season.

phanofsports17 06-21-2006 12:36 PM

Sell- Although the Lakers are still improving and the sky is the limit for them...i dont think they can do as well as the Clippers next season.

Buy or Sell- Kobe averages above 30 ppg next season.

insidehoops 06-21-2006 01:12 PM

Sell. I think he certainly can average 30 ppg if he wants to, but in the ideal world the Lakers will get more talent, and Kobe averages more like 25-28 ppg, and distributes the ball and racks up more assists. They need it.

Buy or Sell - Andrew Bynum will get more minutes per game than Kwame Brown sometime in his Lakers career

Buy, he has proven so much and doesnt have anything to prove. he's the NBA's greatest closer and he has won championships before.

Buy or sell: Lakers will become a top 4 seed next season

I have to sell that. Right now, I can see them getting a 6th seed, maybe a 5 if Odom stays and plays the entire season like he did the end of last season, Brown finally plays up to his potential, Banks signs and has a monster year, all our bench players play great. I still have Phoenix, Dallas, San Antonio at the top. That would mean we would basically have to finish above everybody else and I don't see that happening.

Buy or sell
Kwame Brown will have more double double games (points and rebounds)than Shaquille O'Neal next season.

Sell, No matter how old shaq will get he will still average about 9 rebounds. something Kwame works extremely hard at. While Kwame might average 15 points and 8 rebounds shaq will average 14+ ppg and 10 rebounds.

Buy or sell: Kobe will win the MVP award next season

buy...hopefully. hes in his prime, the supporting cast is more used to phil's system. they're all more experienced. theres no reason why lakers cant improve about 10 games than last season, considering they blew away so many close games this yr. kobe will trust his teamates more. stats will improve and he will be crowned mvp.

buy or sell: lakers will make the playoffs and advance past the first round

lakerfreak 06-22-2006 12:55 AM

Buy..especially if they Get a high seeding it increases their chances of advancing.

someone else make a buy or sell topic.i ran out lol
