Re: Vladimir Radmanovic
I was under the impression that the only players to receive rings were the current roster, so the 12 guys who played in the Finals plus Yue and Morrison.
That turned out to be a very astute trade from Kupchak. The fact that we were able to dump Radmanovic and his inconsistent, soft, defensively-challenged play and wind up with a player who contributed in the playoffs and was only supposed to be the throw-in to the deal, was superb.
Who knows if the Lakers would have won the title with Radmanovic? Probably. We're in a much better position now though. Good times.
