You mean other than the fact it was a good thing we didn't try to sign him?!

the sad thing is it doesn't matter if it's his attitude or his injury that's holding him back. that is a really big red flag either way.

Washington may be the best destination for a Williams/Ridnour trade.

I don't think they have what Wolves need.

I'm not a fan of this. 13mil. for a backup C is too much. Honestly, he's not better than Pekovic.


Do you guys think the Lakers will even reach the playoffs?

I know it's still very early and they could definitely go on a run. As of right now they're 3 games below .500, though. And things are not looking good. Kobe is looking like a horrible chucker. Their defense is horrible at best considering they just gave up 117 @home against the Utah "We like to lose away games" Jazz.

Statistically, Kobe is having a really good season so far but what is obvious is that he's playing in Michael Beasley iso mode much more than in previous seasons. And he's playing too many minutes.

On top of that, there defense is very D'Antoni like right now. Kobe and Duhan are horrible defenders in the backcourt. Metta is average and Pau horrible. And Dwight can't do everything alone.

Add in that Nash is injured (although opposing PG's would pretty much blow by him too) and a pretty bad bench.

I honestly think they could miss the playoffs this year. Should've kept Brown as head coach. They can always score 100 but with D'Antoni they try to play a running style with a far too old team. It's not gonna work out in their favour, IMO.

They're bound to make the post-season with that amount of talent. They will go on some runs later on. Assuming they stay moderately healthy.

But it's funny to watch them struggle.

The question is are they really that talented? Their bench looking average at the very best. Pau Gasol is playing terrible as of right now and they have a huge problem defensively. Nobody but Dwight Howard and maybe Jordan Hill is an above average defender on their position.

Defensively they might be one of the 5 worst teams of the league under D'Antoni. Add in that his coach style suits basically nobody on this team other than an over the hill Steve Nash.

Gasol, Ron, Kobe and Nash are simply too old for a run & gun team. They need to play in a good halfcourt offense rather than this run and gun crap.

They also had a rather home heavy schedule up until now with 13 home games and 8 away games. Barely over .500 at home and .25 on the road.

Without further pickups I think they're a 7 seed at best right now and could very well even miss the playoffs.

Seems like Turner is flirting with triple doubles every game.

Lin is lighting up the Spurs without Harden in the lineup.

I'd take Ben McLemore right now, even with zero NBA experience.

Raptors are crumbling like crazy. Bargs goes down with an injury, Amir Johnson starts going after refs, meltdown city. Heads are going to roll soon barring a drastic change for the better.

OKC even has the rights to Toronto's 2013 pick as long as it isn't in the top 3. Toronto has the second worst record in the NBA.

That's ridiculous. If you read their board, it's pretty funny, people have completely lost it.

I'd bet my house on Toronto finishing with the fourth worst record then. :lol:

I don't see a stern fix this year. No clear #1, so there isn't a real reason to.

One thing he usually gets criticized for is the lack of rings on his hands. This is kinda true but when you consider which teams he ran into as a HC during the playoffs, particularly when his teams were contenders, it could be just bad luck.

Question: Does Reggie Miller get criticized for lack of rings? Karl Malone? John Stockton?
