Earl Clark has Lamar Odom potential, if Dantoni keeps giving him minutes he will only get better. If we could trade Pau for bench pieces we should do it asap.

Nash
Kobe
Metta
Clark
D12

That has been our best starting unit all season.

Clarksanity!

It all depends on what your personal expectations of him are... If you expect him to replace Pau in the starting lineup and be a consistent double/double threat while playing solid D, I think you might be a little disappointed sooner or later...
If you expect him to be an impact role-player off the bench, I'd say he's legit... Something like Hill was for us.

I think he COULD be a Lamar Odom-type player for us, but I don't think it's fair to say he's already there.

I think the thing that's great about our roster is we don't need Clark to be a double double threat as the starting PF. We have plenty of offense in our starting 5, what we need is defense and hustle which is what Earl brings each night and something we can expect if he continues to start. Clark is the glue guy you need in a starting 5 with multiple star players that can bring things Pau can't.

Pau can bring more offensively, but we don't need it with Nash, Kobe and Dwight already being incredible scoring threats. He's being horribly underutilized offensively in the starting PF role due to Dwight needing the low post, and even worse he can't defend PFs which makes him a overall liability to the team in that role.

Praise the lord! MD is starting Earl Clark tonight...at least for now

"Head Coach Mike D’Antoni confirmed at shootaround today that Pau Gasol WILL play tonight, but Earl Clark will remain in the starting lineup. Clark sat out yesterday’s practice, but said, “I feel better today, ready to go.” He’ll start out on Bosh while Metta World Peace guards Lebron James.

D’Antoni will re-evaluate after tonight’s game and possibly start Gasol this weekend at Toronto."

Earl has put together a stretch of games that are far MORE impressive than any stretch of games in a row that Gasol has played this season. No doubt about that

Pau sucks this season though... Hill out-played him too... It's not that big a deal. Unless your name is Jamison.

I'm a huge Clark fan, but it's been a handful of games... Not a big enough sample size to appoint him starting PF. Yet... Now if he plays well on significant minutes tonight against a team like the Heat... Maybe it's time.

With regards to the starters, Williams can cut off the ball and is an ok shooter from deep. His defensive abilities at the 3 especially would be a very big boost to L.A.



Still shocked TWill hasn't stuck with a team. Too much talent to fail

Earlsanity played a good game. This time he got some help defense, but played Durant well putting a hand in Durant face..

Durant scored a lot of points from the free throw line, some of them were bogus calls.

Earlsanity made some mistakes at times taking the wrong position on defense, but he is a great asset to the Lakers, especially with these new breed of big SF's playing the PF position

I don't think he can become an LO type guy, his passing or handle isn't that good. What he can be is a more athletic defender, I see him more as our Trevor 2.0. Especially since Devin didn't pan out.

He will be offered more than we think is reasonable and will go somewhere else.
Book it.

I'd love for him to stay but I just am not sure we want to invest in a player like him for the long run in this financial market.

In fact, as much as I don't want to see him go, it might make sense to try to trade him as an expiring.

Who or what do you think we could get for Clark? 2nd rounder? end of the rotation guy?

Well, he's on a 1.2M expiring contract, but I think he's more of a filler than an individual straight up trade guy... But I firmly believe someone will drop 7-8mil/yr for as many years as he can get, on him in the open market, and we won't match.

You package Clark and Ebanks with Duhon and you give a team 2.5M that comes off the books this season and 3.5 next. You also give them a young solid starting caliber Forward, a young backup Forward, and Duhon, who's a decent locker room guy and an expiring next season.
Or maybe they go in a Pau trade.
But I think with every game played he get's more attractive.

we thought that with Jordan Hill and he stayed for less, Minn offered him more than we did.
