I know Lakers fans will be like whoa whoa Pau's not a bench player, but he'll be a year older with more miles on his body. He can only play Center and he doesn't provide a defensive presence. I can see Kobe and Pau taking a pay cut 2 year deals with player options on the 2nd year, but management can't screw up. They have to land at least one big free agent and sign some young players with potential. No, oh well we gave it a shot, we'll just fill up the roster with min. contracts and wait for 2015. That's just not a good way to do business.
Oh and stop getting into internet beefs! It aint that serious
Great stuff!!!! I like your ideas.....and yes, Pau off the bench would work much better than as a starter.
Yeah, you are right about staying out of beefs, but I'm a competitive, feisty old man
