A guy like Ariza is a BAAAAAAAD fit for the rockets. The rockets didnt need a guy like Ariza. Why/.? They have Shane Battier. They needed a guy like ARtest. A guy that can create his own shot, create for others.
The lakers dont need a guy that can create his own shot. Not with mr Bryant,LO,pau,Bynum on the team. We dont need a guy that takes up a lot of attention.
What the lakers needed, was a guy like ariza. He was the perfect piece to our puzzle. With artest, I'm just afraid he might be too much of a player and quite frankly, the piece might be too big to fit into the missing hole of the lakers' puzzle.
