luigi>mario has an OK reputation so far
Default Laker Salaries

I was checking out the contracts the Lakers have, and I think next year is your serious championship run year. Farmar, Bryant, Odom, Gasol, Bynum will have gelled, and Farmar/Bynum will have arrived. That ought to be plenty to keep Bryant from even thinking about opting-out.

But I was wondering, I know the FO doesn't care too much about the cap, but how much can they manage to give to Turiaf this summer? If I were them, I would be looking to move Odom to keep Turiaf, but I am used to salary cap teams. What do you see coming?

The Lakers will not give up Turiaf... and they can re-sign him within the terms of the CBA.

Buss has said he will pay the lux tax as long as he is working toward brining titles to LA. If so (which he has demonstrated so far), we should not be concerned about that.

The old coot has surprised me, I will admit.

All we have to do is win some championships and that will offset the lux tax for Jerry Buss...
