Tmac would be a great fit for this team 

Post#1 » by CodyB_ » Sat Nov 17, 2012 2:49 am

Lack of depth at the 3, plus a coach that utilises tweener forwards with point guard skill sets makes for a great opportunity for Tmac in Laker land.

I could imagine that TMac would thrive in the role that Boris Diaw played on the Suns. They are roughly the same height but Tmac is much longer and could serve a role as offensive initiator from the high post SHOULD we trade away a certain Spaniard.

Tmac was always a brilliant passer. He can still do a lot of things with the ball and relieve Kobe and Nash. With the right tweaks, he could even be neutral or a small positive on the defensive end as a help defender.

The Lakers could go big with Tmac, Kobe, Ron, Pau and Dwight. Play zone, shut down the paint and challenge the point shots. Probably not good for transition D though, lol.

The only player I could think more suited for this role is Lamar Odom.

Usually I'm against these types of pick ups, but maybe you're right. More importantly we need the scoring, I OK if the Lakers wanted to do it.

either of the Kobe titles... preferably both, so we could still tease Laker fans about Kobe being just a sidekick.

Go look at Tmacs production for ATL last year and you will change your tune and add in the fact he played in like only half the games b/c of injuries. Tmac is done.
