2012-13 Los Angeles Lakers Thread

I don't think he will go to LA because he doesn't want to face the "had to run to Kobe" criticism. He already went through that stuff once, I don't think he wants to go through that again. Miami will be able to get guys around him because good players will always come to Lebron.

I don't think he really cares about "had to run to Kobe" criticism. Win a chip and finals MVP and no one can really argue that.

Anything can happen...but I highly highly doubt he leaves Miami. D-Wade better be fukin' healthy in 2013-2014.

If you read Simmons' hilarious plan for the Lakers he points out that they should ship Pau to someone like Chicago so that they beat the Heat because no superstar has ever left a 3-peat team. Anyone who wants to be in the LeBron sweepstakes next year needs to help their competitors this year. If the Heat 3peat I'm pretty sure they all stick together for one more run.



Simmons has nothin' better to do for a few years...then come up with these plans. It's not such a terrible idea...but IMO biggest factor in Lebron's decision will be the front-office and if they can put a team around him that has a chance of winning a chip. If any FO is making terrible deals, I doubt Lebron will even consider them.

I don't think he wants to go through that again. He has a good situation in Miami, and he should continue to build his legacy there. He shouldn't be hopping to different teams. He is too great. I doubt he goes anywhere.

I doubt he goes anywhere too. I won't mind if he goes back to Cleveland though.

Maybe tell LA that. He's the one posting Lebron on the roster.

I'm telling you because you have the stink hole. LA's hole smells sweet, like candy and daisies. And don't ask me how I know that.

LOL, that's hilarious.

I don't see them 3-peating either way, personally, and I picked 'em the last two years.
Lakers have extended a camp invite to Shawne Williams, who was a solid contributor with D'Antoni a couple of years back in NYC. He wasn't in the league last year because of off the court issues, but he's a talented guy.

It seems pretty apparent that this is a tryout year for several guys AND D'Antoni. With the addition of Nick Young, Wesley Johnson, Jordan Farmar, & Shawne Williams (and Kaman, to an extent), he has much more in the way of guys that fit his style this year. No one's expecting a championship or anything, but he'll be expected to win at a decent clip to stick around for 2014.

Each of those players, other than Kaman, are between 26-28 years old. All are on one year deals, and there are minutes to be had. If a couple of those guys can emerge from the others, they'll likely be part of the team from '14 and beyond.
Should've kept Goudelock he was tearing up summer league.
Trevor Ariza was spotted wearing a Kobe jersey. I wonder if he'll get kraep for that.
