Default Why do people think Dwight will be ok with being a 3rd option?

I've seen people say Dwight will be the 3rd or even 4th option for that team. Sure they may do that but there's a 0% chance he will resign if that is the case and the Lakers should be more focused on resigning him than anything. If he doesn't resign it will officially mean a legitimate rebuild for the Lakers. See if they remember how to draft.

He should've just demanded a trade to Houston like I wrote to him in that letter.

He won't be the third option.

That decision will rest on Nash to decide.

He is gonna be the primary post option. Pau is gonna shot 20 foot jumpers and 3 pointers and play bad pick and roll defense. They need to get rid of Pau for Smith if possible because he isnt a good enough defender at the 4 spot at this stage of his career.

This team is being massively overrated on here. They are old and the pieces don't really fit. OKC and Miami are clearly better imo.

Kobe seems to have made that an impossible scenario.

Pau is going to feed Howard too, I don't know why people insist on labeling players as "options", it's a way of oversimplifying basketball. It's all situational, surely Pau and Nash will have higher scoring games than Howard but it will also happen the other way around (and probarbly more often).

besides insidehoops amazing analyst, who else have you seen saying dwight would be a 3rd of 4th option? If its not coming from the Lakers coaching staff/players, we wont know what option he is until we see it in action.

you're dumb to insist that he'll be the 3rd option when Kobe himself said that Dwight will get more touches here in LA than he did in Orlando. And if he is then who cares, this ain't his team anymore. As long as he plays good D then that's all that matters. Kobe's Tyson Chandler lol

I'm insisting he'll be the third option?
I'm saying others on here have said that and I said IF that were true he would not resign.

There's where you went wrong to begin with. Who the hell knows what the Lakers plan is offensively.

This is nothing more than yet another bogus scared hater thread. We've seen anything from this team will implode like the '04 Lakers, to this team can be beaten by just doubling down on Kobe. All before they've even played a single game

exactly what someone else said, YOU nor these people know what the Lakers plan is and why wouldn't he resign? Did you not see how happy he looked during his press conference? why wouldn't you resign knowing lakers can give you the most money, nash/kobe will retire in like 2 years, and the lakers will easily build another team around you.
