I don't think this handcuffs the team as much as people might think. I'm not saying it's not a lot of money for an aging player, but they'll still have plenty of money to spend after Kobe, Nash, and sacre get paid. Which, IIRC, are the only players under contract after this season. I don't think Nash will be back, so they'll be alright.

Nice job staying calm after Ninerjohn has been coming at you like that.

STFU. I explained that Stoney is probably the most loyal Lakers fan in here. I just think his love for the Lakers and Kobe clouds his vision a bit. To say I have been "coming like you like that" is total BS.

It seemed like more of an attempt to flame something between Stoney and me than a joke. I dont get the humor in it.

It wasn't an attempt "to flame something" between you guys, NO HOMO. I wouldn't do that and I thought it was pretty obvious. Sorry.

No worries. I said after my first post that I had worded it wrong and didnt mean to imply that Stoney wasnt knowledgable. He is a loyal Laker fan come hell or high water and I appreciate that. No band wagon in him.

Bad wording. Stoney is such a Lakers fan that I think they could pay Kobe 50 Million per year and he would be happy. I mean, there isnt a bigger fan than him. I just think Pete is more likely to be unbiased when it comes to the signing. Thats all.

You think wrong.

Well that's $8 million less than he's making this year. lol
I'm not comfortable with being compared to Stoney in terms of fandom. He's a great, diehard Laker fan, and just because I disagree with him it doesn't make me right.
Regarding this extension, to put it simply, I don't know how you construct a championship team out of a 35 y/o+, post-Achilles tear Kobe Bryant, Robert Sacre, & $34-35M of cap space.

They've completed effed up this rebuilding effort. This isn't the first domino to fall, but it's the most damaging. My best hope is that we land a stud with the 15th pick (even though we should have tanked and been a part of the monstrous Top 7 in this draft ), pick up one of the max level FA's in '15 (Rondo, Love, Aldridge, Gasol, Hibbert) and then Durant in '16 when Kobe expires.

Doesn't make you wrong, either.



I just don't see any of the max players actually wanting to come here next summer. Lebron isn't coming here. Melo already said he doesn't want to play here, and frankly, I don't want him to. So they're looking at getting some 2nd level guys to stack around what we already have. Kobe's new contract doesn't prohibit that. And IMO, I think Pau is going to come back at a discounted price. Does that put us in a position to be a serious title contender? Probably not. But that's just how I see it going down.
I definetly was trying to start something between Stoney and John lol

finally...this was the lineup i was begging for since the season started. blake played amazing, that was one of the best passing games ive ever seen out of him. he truly looked like steve nash on those bounce passes

we stick with this lineup, we can be a 6-4 team every 10 games, and that will just good enough until kobe comes back.

This team isnt going to play .600 ball without Kobe. Get real.

4-2 and so far
