That should mean lebron to PF too, right? I believe that's what they said they discussed before RW signed. So what's the expected power line up?

1. RW
2.?
3.?
4. Lebron
5. AD

From what I saw Ariza and Wayne are the starters. Last 5 minutes, Melo and Rondo?

From what I read - that'll be decided in the Training camp. Ellington and Ariza are favorites going into the TC but nothing is set other than those 3 positions. Also, AD said that Dwight or DJ will start if they're playing certain centers.

This is really exciting though.
If AD plays at Center 75% of the minutes - I think it will be his best year and he'll be an MVP candidate and a top 3 player in the league. It's time for him to take over as the best player on the team - at least during the regular season.

That's pretty cool.

Also reading that Monk has really stood out so far in the camp. Do want Monk to do well. He's so skilled - just needs to put it together. Will be amazing if he can do it on this team.

Between Melo, Monk, Ellington, and Nunn - I think the lakers got enough shooting around Westbrook and Bron finally. Baze and Ariza can shoot too but those 4 can really let it fly.

Pau was always Pau. Most didn't know because he was stuck in Memphis. I was a huge fan of his before the Lakers. I was ecstatic when we got him.

The whole league was pissed when Lakers got Pau - and wanted Stern to investigate that trade. I think that pretty much tells you what other coaches and Gm thought of Pau. Of course playing next to an all time great will enhance your game.

Also - I don't know how anyone can make someone into a HOF player. Players get in HOF bc of themselves. Others help but no one makes you into a HOF player.
