I think the Lakers get better and younger. Think Timberwolves go for it?

LOL!!! dude, you got me in tears laughing at that trade you plugged into trademachine.

Only the Lakers would agree to that. Terrible for everyone else involved.

Whatever we do, I hope we don't sign Steve Nash like all this talk has been circulating. He is garbage on defense, and a queer, literally. Plus we need to get younger and more athletic at that position to deal with the Westbrook's and Parker's of the western conference.

So Nash was blocked by Suns owner

Dwight still up in the air

R Lewis has a mutual interest to hop on board

A Jamieson is busting as well

Snoop tweeted Mayo

Then there is Gasol to Rockets or Minny.....

Anything else I miss???

Gasol has also strikened interest from Philly and Atlanta. Lakers signed Ebanks and Morris so far.

I heard we don't want him, we'd rather keep Bynum. Such a terrible move by us.

I feel like Josh Mcroberts aint solid enough for Pau's back-up... idk why..

Back up PG and PF.
I wouldn't mind keeping blake though, he just has to step up his game a little bit.

Most of the Canadian fans I know root for Toronto mildly, but they cheer for Steve Nash maniacally. And that's including people in Montreal, Vancouver, and Winnipeg.

Those of you saying Toronto is overpaying are missing the point. They're completely prepared to have Nash age into a withered husk during that final year (maybe even two years), because they figure the renewed interest, legitimacy, and revenue Nash will generate at the beginning of his contract will more than pay for it. Their intent from the outset was to blow away the competition's bids, because only offering a little extra per year might not have cut it. Hence the exorbitant offer, and the personal message from Wayne Gretzky, and the personal Canadian bikini massage team, or whatever the hell else they promised.

And those of you saying you'll lose respect for Nash taking the bigger money are either being cynical or overidealistic. Offer any rational human being the choice between a 36 million dollar contract and 3-to-9 million dollar contract, and he'll almost always take the extra 27 to 33 million dollars, irrespective of context. And so would you.

If you're not a millionaire, it's tempting to say, "He's made more than enough money in his career," but that's not how people generally act. There's a reason why billionaires hide their money in off-shore tax shelters, even though they have "more than enough." There are reasons why Steve Jobs' salary at Apple was 99.99999999999999999% paid in stock options. There's a reason why Kobe won't entertain any thoughts of cutting his salary, even though it's making it hell for Mitch et al. to build a team around him. And it's not (just) because they're greedy assholes.


When the dust finally cleared, Steve Nash agreed with me........go for the ring, screw the money!!!!!!!!! Now no one can say he doesn't care about winning a championship

No disrespect with playing in Canada but........if you eliminated the top 15 teams in the NBA the Raptors still wouldn't win a title with Nash
Didn't make sense to go out that way.

Absolutely! The guy still can't defend any PG in the NBA, but it's been a long time since LA has had someone who can run an offense at that position. If the Lakers can land Howard somehow, they'll be the favorites.

Unrestricted free agent Grant Hill is "leaning towards" signing with the Lakers.
This news comes from the same source who broke the Steve Nash to Lakers deal, so we're inclined to take it seriously. Hill has reportedly received convincing recruiting pitches from Nash and Kobe Bryant, and those are two guys who can be awfully hard to turn down. If signed, Hill would be a savvy pickup for Los Angeles.

Bynum/Sacre

atm this is what our roster looks like, Im guessing we are also gonna resign Barnes so that makes us have 15 players. Sacre and Eyenga will probably get dropped so that the team has room for any other veterans who wanna join the team. But man, whens the last time our team was this old? 2004?
