you dont need a center or a pg with that team
well when is the last time any superstar came or said they wanted to? Not including drafting them and/or some kinda packaged sign and trade?
Disclaimer....who wasnt ring chasing or at the tail end of their careers
if a player wants to come to you...you make room... you do whatever it takes. Come on as great as a owner the lakers once had, trust and believe if a big time act wanted to come trust they would make the moves....
This is the same team that pulled highway robbery and got Gasol to come... I mean using that excuse pretty much ish on arguable one of the greatest gm/owners in bball
I doubt it but what will happen is one of two things....every one is gonna try to pull a Celtics/Heat move and get a big three, or some of the players especially the ones who looking for a big payday is gonna go to who ever paying.
you say that as if they are not back to back champs
lol exactly lakers, who arguably had the best ownership in the last few decades, cant sign a big time superstar because of cap space...yet new owners, hell owners who aint even from this country or no squat about bball can and has done it time and time again....
I mean la fans kill me, dudes up in here literally spitting on a great mans grave, all to save face on a sneaker sports forum. I don't know whether to commend them for iuno I guess in a backwards arzz way being a fan, or lol at the amount of foolishness and stupidity they say at times just as a die hard fan.
ron artest isn't a superstar....you basically saying lets see over the last few decades, barkley, prime rodman, pippen, dominque, a few others, tmac, LeBron, amare, melo, deron Williams, the list goes on...all really wanted to play for la, but it was because of cap space and them winning was the reason despite a lot of these guys went to teams that were winning..... Hell pippen/barkley went to a Houston team that recently won back to back chips...
Last big superstar who up and came to la was lew alcinder, and hell for awhile he was even pissed at the lakers.
i dont see why the lakers would go for big superstars post shaq. We had prime kobe who was the best in the league at the time and obviosly wanted to build around him. Put the perfect supporting cast around him and traded for pau and u got 3 finals appearances. Its crazy how quick dudes forget, we were jus the team to beat a few years ago. Every summer teams were gearing up, building a team to try to beat the lakers like teams are doing for miami.
