Tmac would be a great fit for this team

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.
DWIGHT! I haven't been this excited since I was a heat fan

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.

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.
