Default Rumor: Lakers want Ira Newble

This is on the ISH rumor page. Check it out.

From what I heard about Ira is he's a physical defender and I am guessing the lakers are missing ariza's defense, in which case they would bring Ira in for a little bit.

This move doesn't make sense to me only because at this point he isn't eligible to play in the playoffs.

That's the beauty of it, he is. He was waived before March 1st.

I'm all for this move, the guy is supposedly very tough, physical and even perhaps a little dirty which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
If he can help shift this teams mentality to the tough and defensive side with all of the aforementioned qualities that he possesses then he might prove himself to be valuable beyond of what we can imagine right now.
The only question is how gooad are those defensive qualities and tenaciousness, just something that sticks out for a scrub or perhaps even playoff quality good. I like it. A lot. The risk factor is below minimal and we need a player like that.

He is playoff eligible. I say sign him for depth, we could use somebody who likes to grind them out and play dirty with Ariza most likely out for season.

The only thing I know about him is that he once jumpkicked Mike Dunleavy. That alone makes him worthy of a roster spot.

Too young, too inexperienced, we really dont need a player to develop. Rather a guy who can help us with our defensive needs.

I would really like us to get Newble. He is a very solid role player and above avg perimeter defender. There is a dark cloud over Ariza that he may not return for us so I think getting him would help alleviate some of that. He doesnt do much that shws u in the box score but he can score a little, pass a little and most importantly defend. Great pick up if we get him

It is kind of funny how quick these threads pop up when someone gets waived . But in all fairness to the resident freak itís the top story of the ISH rumor page that the Lakers are looking at the option so there is some merit to this thread.


Oh and the kick for those asking was 06 if Iím not mistaken.

Defense wins championships.. And SoCal you are a funny guy. Green, Newble or whoever it takes to win is fair conversation for me. I enjoy listening to everybody trying to put key players together to join the lakers.
