Mike Brown is going to have a hell of a time managing these whining bitches. At least Nash is a true professional but he's old and can't play heavy minutes.

I don't know the plan, I never claimed to, I do not think people saying he will be 3rd or 4th are right. I am wondering how and why people are thinking this, why they want it to be true, and if people agree with me that it's a bad idea.

What are you talking about OP? What legit basketball analyst has stated Dwight will be a 3rd or 4th option?

Some of you all are desperate to see Dwight leave LA, huh?

This is more of a response to a few unintelligent Laker fans than the view of real analysts. Read some of my other posts I don't honestly take it seriously.

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.

I disagree, the pieces fit perfectly as long as Kobe is good with a few but eaiser shots than before.

I think Pau will be doing a lot of stuff like this off of Nash pick'nrolls only better than Hill because he's bigger and a good passer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPSpvdpnxUw&feature=player_detailpage#t=12 3s

Who becomes the 2nd/3rd/4th option will ALL rest on Kobe. We already know who runs and dictates the offense (and its NOT Mike Brown). Nash will most certainly listen to anything Kobe says or demands.

Centers in the princeton offense don't play like that. It's a posting and cutting offense. That's just wrong.

What I worry about is with Nash basically deciding who the 1st option is, if he dumps it into the post more than he does to Kobe, I worry about Kobe just stopping the ball movement whenever he touches the ball.

Because he wants to win. Deep down inside Dwight knows he's not a go-to scorer. That's why he came to a team where he would only have to be third offensive option, and why he wanted to go to a team with an elite PG, to help feed him easy buckets.

He was traded he didn't come in free agency. Calm down with that.

People really badly want Dwight to leave, huh? If it's you personally, would you? Leave Los Angeles where they are going to treat you like a god and you have a chance to win titles and get paid the most?

Be real here.

Do we really think Kyrie will stay in Cleveland once his contract is up?

Funny thing is, some of the Kobe stans actually think LAL will risk running Dwight out of town just for the sake of appeasing old man Kobe's ego. Not gonna happen. They're gonna give Dwight the keys and whatever else it takes to keep him satisfied.

He's coming from Orlando where there is nothing to do. He's now in LA, where movie stars are going to be fawning over him, the weather is nice every day, Addidas will be pushing him to stay because it's large market, as will his agent, his friends, his 49 baby mommas. The Lakers are going to basically point out to him how the media is going to kiss his ass while he is there. He's not leaving.
