Re: BREAKING NEWS: Artest expect to sign with the Lakers
While I am sad to see Trevor go, it was ultimately his decision and he chose to not take the MLE offer. I would much rather have Ron at the MLE then pay trevor 7-8mil. Additionally, Ron is a much better on the ball defender and should prove valuable against, RJ, LB, PP, should we face any of them in the playoffs.
Further, I agree with some people's concern about his shot taking decisions, but he tends to make those poor decisions mostly when he is the main option. When he played with TMac and Yao he played with himself and the system. When TMac went down he opened up a little but not too bad. He really started chucking after Yao went down. He will be the 3rd or 4th option at any given time with the Lakers.
