You can't judge Bynum yet. He's 18 years old. The youngest player ever drafted into the NBA. You don't want to trade him to another team and watch develop into a top flight NBA center. Give the kid some time. He wasn't drafted to help the team in the immediate future.

The only untouchable players are Bryant, Odom, and Bynum. The Lakers needs to get a point guard who can shoot. Quincy Douby would be a nice fit for example.

They need scorers to come off the bench and they need youth. Kareem Rush should come pretty cheap and he can help right away. He's familiar with the system.

If Phil is moving Odom to Power Forward, the Lakers need to get someone to play the wing alongside Kobe. Caron Butler would've been nice. Luke Walton isn't good enough. If the Lakers can trade up to get Shawne Williams from Memphis, they should consider it.

If lakers Were to trade up, it should be because they want to draft Shelden Williams. This is just specualtion but Post players that are rookies can make an impact right away. Shelden is Physical and hes rough down low. He can do anything in the Post.

We should draft him. and if not, Ronny Turiaf makes great contributions already

I agree, Sheldon's a beast. One of my favourite 3 players in the draft, along with Reddick and Morrison.

Sheldon could help the Lakers a lot. He is very much like Emeka Okafor, except that he should be able to stay healthy.

All the Lakers need is small forward.you cant stop Kobe. Lamar is a All-Star. Smush is improving. Kwame has talent

Vujacic started to come into his own in the playoffs. If the Lakers are getting a new point guard, trade Smush. A cheap backup point with experience as a starter is very valuable. Kwame needs to learn patience. Also, they have to play him at center.

I wish we still had Caron Butler.

Vujacic can be that Steve Kerr or John Paxson of the bulls. Only he can actually dribble, pass, and shoot and defend as well.

Call me crazy but maybe if Sasha does well enough shooting over 40% then maybe he can be our starting PG...i dont see why not.

Once again though Mitch Kupchak I am speaking to you and i am telling you if you want to do smething right this time...DRAFT SHELDEN WILLIAMS GODDAMNIT.

keep Turiaf, draft shelden, and trade Brian Cook. We all Know that Cook is very good to throw in a trade. Lots of teams called at the deadline to get cook But lakers declined.

To ge a Good PF like Boozer we can throw in Mihm and Cook as the main Parts along with Aaron Mckie's Expiring Contract.

I think we should keep Our Main 7 Guys.

Kwame, Lamar, Kobe, Smush, Walton, Turiaf, and Sasha.

Everyone else needs to fine ways to contribute.

Lakers did bad drafting Wafer (reminds me of waffles). so they should let him go along with Green so we can Make room for Kareem Rush and Laron Profit.

And through the Midlevel add Marcus Banks.

not only does kwame need to learn patience but also his footwork needs help...those are the things he needs to work on this off season

and would love to see sasha start cuz i would rather see smush as a spark off the bench...sasha has the heart to play every single minute of the game...smush gets lost at times

not that he gets lost...sometimes he shoots too much threes that they dont go in and he loses his confidence....someone like him with his hops and dunking ability should drive it in every time and get some free throws.

then he will be better

That I agree with also.

I just feel bad for the guy that went undrafted and traveled sooo much after that.

I just wish he stays in LA and gets paid as our backup PG. He has done great things as a laker anyways and proved that belongs in this league.

Sometimes he does take some forced threes when he isnt doing that well. he wants to score the ball. you can see it on his face. He want's to score and frankly i dont blame him he wants a Job somewhere long term.

To get to the next level I believe they should make the Odom to chicago trade.

I think it Might turn out well.

Or make the Carlos Boozer deal where we trade Chris, Mckie, Brian, and I think it was George but he might not come back at all.
