    Mavs will be fun to watch. PG spot and bench though looks bad....

    Well we added Rashard Lewis, so there is that...I hope we can get Mo Williams and give Tyson Chandler a real run for his money on the defensive end with that stacked offensive.

    Poor Tyson at this age.

    Well, also hope Marion comes back to take some of that weight of his shoulders.

    Also Lance to Charlotte seems a done deal. How could the Hawks be so arrogant and sleep on him.

    After what happened to Paul George I'm very happy that Love was pulled off of team USA.

    Stupid NBA pundit talk.

    Kobe already won everything and Kobe wants to be a Laker. Its like staying true to Barca the last few years after winning everything with them and not joining another trophy hunt somewhere else. Its like the people asking what if Kobe had stayed with a solid Charlotte team in his rookie year. Kobe wanted to be a Laker back then already. Kobe does what Kobe wants.

    And money? Well I think Kobe, looking at his roster and the Laker situation knew a paycut wouldnt help them to the extend that they could build a real contending team, Dirk knew that a paycut would give his team in his situation that.

    To be honest, I was of a similar opinion. I mean, I imagine at the age of 36, having spent 18 years at the one club with 5 NBA rings, most people would just see out their career in the place they are comfortable. I mean why get a trade to another club for one year and risk your reputation when there's a very high chance you won't even win a title.

    Still though, I just find it interesting the NBA employ these pundits who are critical of the game and players in it. It's very much an American thing, if not just an NBA thing and it's nice to see.

    I'm a Lakers fan since a was 5 and Kobe's fan as well. He's right about owners shifting the blame on the players for maximising their salaries while making huge profits themselves. And he did leave almost 10 million dollars on the table with his latest ridiculous contract. He was eligible to get a 34+ mil salary, instead he opted for 25 mil. Plus, comparing revenues (and subsequently salaries available) of the Lakers and, let's say, San Antonio is laughable. There's that.
    However, I can't watch Lakers this season, and Bryant as well. It's just too painful.
    My only hope that in two years, when he retires, Lakers can pull a magic trick and bring in my new favorite Anthony Davis...
