howard is the better player but our perimeter D sucks and is the reason why we lost paul is a great PG he isnt the best shooter however is maybe the best passer in the nba and one of the best if not the best defensive PG in the nba

I'd rather have Paul too, especially if we would be able to keep Bynum.

Chris Paul creating open looks for Kobe and Bynum would be unbelievable.
i'd rather make a play for Deron Williams!

I think it may also depend on who's your coach.

Bring in Shaw and let him other play besides the triangle.
he can switch style of offense ran and Deron would be a better fit than Paul, in that aspect.

Willaims is a shooter and a playmaker. Everyone know we coils use a shooter especially at PG.

I would take either PG with no complains. If I had to pick between a PG or a PF/C, I would pick Dwight! maybe they wont get traded and we can make a run for them on next years free agency.
100% Awesome!

Kreidler, a well respected journalist brought up the fact that the city of LA isn't Adelman's type of thing. Hell, he rarely spoke to the Maloofs if at all.
So long Phil.

Phil Jackson is the Gold digger and Kobe ran out of gold.

And then he started talking about Kobe. Other than Jackson's health, the biggest reason he nearly retired last June was because he didn't want to be coaching Kobe Bryant when he stopped being Kobe Bryant. If you remember, Kobe struggled in Round 1 of the 2010 playoffs, rallied in the next two rounds, then gave the Lakers just enough to survive a seven-game war against Boston. Looking ahead while factoring in everything he had just witnessed, measuring the lessons of history, counting Kobe's NBA miles … the coach couldn't tell for sure. Either Kobe had one elite season left in him, or he didn't. Jackson's instincts were telling him no. His heart was telling him yes. Once his players started pressuring him to return, then the fans, then his girlfriend, he caved and came back. One more year.
I love Simmons, but I always crack up when he tries to speak for people like that.
