The short 3 pointer from the corner is Mo's shot but that's not how he should be used IMO. When he was in Sacto he was best when they tried to use his athleticism, on the break, getting alley oops, just finding open dunks, etc. He's a solid player but it sounds like they want him to be a poor man's Bruce Bowen(and also isn't that how Detroit used him?) which he's not.

thanks for that update, brad. la needs to take advantage of his athleticism, mo evans is an athleticism freak. also, i think mo is a solid defender. how did sacto let him go?

If I remember right we didn't have the money to sign Darius Songaila or Mo Evans AND Shareef Abdur-Rahim. Geoff chose Reef over those two. Looking back and seeing that Kevin Martin and Fransisco Garcia played well it's not a bad decision. Mo's a solid player and a good addition. He should definitely be better for LA than Jimmy Jackson was and he only cost them some guy picked with a 2nd rounder right? Mo is an athletic freak and he'll catch some alley oops if they're thrown up there.

BTW if LA gets that line up Hotsizzle has up there they're a 50 win team.

We let his ass walk. Signed with the Pistons and that got him alot of time. :rollingeyes:

Good thing we let him walk, would've stunted growth on Kevin Martin.

Mitch says he got 10 or more calls concerning Lamar via signed and trade.

hopefully the sign and trade deal with odom doesnt involve harrington

That lineup would be scary but....Kobe would slap Sam for taking his shots.

you keep posting this type of bs like it's true.

if you want to dog him for shot selection, it's all good.

otherwise you repeat something that doesn't have as much basis as you think.

No matter how good Cassell is (and he's really good), Lakers fans won't want this deal, because they won't have the precious "defensive PG" they so covet. Defense isn't exactly Cassell's strong suit, you know.

But the Clips would be stupid to not match any offer, since Livingston is still raw, particularly as a decision-maker.

yeah, that's his big draw back. we do lose a lot on the defense side w/him. faster guards would get past him.

Nah, they want a player as talented as Cassell who's also a defensive stopper. They also want defensive stoppers at the SF and PF spots, and a 15-17 ppg, shotblocking center. Basically, LA fans want it all.

Believe me, if they get Cassell, it won't be long until you hear the kvetching about how porous his defense is.
