we have Odom getting better
and something everyone wants KOBE
The only problem is Mckie
I think we should keep the lineup and use Mihm as a backup or teach one of our two centers to play PF
Yes, I know Parker was playing Nash, but he did a terrible job of guarding him and he absolutely fell apart in the playoffs. He has to prove he can handle the pressure and improve his game.
Evans will prove to be more than just a shut down defender.
Kwame is a good center. He really started to come into his own at the end of last year. Depending on how Bynum does in the summer league, Mihm may not be needed. A player like Ely, who can play both the 4 and the 5 would be more ideal for depth because of his versatility. Turiaf will be better and I read that he is working out with Kobe.
I'm expecting Odom to have a career year next year. He played great after the all-star break.
Kobe is Kobe and with more weapons around him, he will be a team player. He wants to be. His teammates needs to play well. Radman will be the receipient of many Kobe passes. Just knock down open shots big man, and you'll be loved.
We don't need Cook. Trade him along with Aaron McKie.
I liked last year's team. I didn't think they were as bad as a lot of people were saying. I'm high on this team, too, even though many teams in the west are improving. It's a possible western conference finals contender, depending on if Mitch will make more improvements. We could use a scorer to come off the bench for example.
