Name the good european players that are in the draft. There is 1 player that will be a difference maker. Do you think that some teams will move out and in the draft? LA has an $8.9m trade exception that can be used by December.

    Lakers are at $83,794,290, for 9 players (including Sessions option). Lets say the give Hill 23 million of 5 years, thats another 4.6 added per year, so totaling around 88 million. Lakers are going to shed salary like they did this year with Fisher and Odom. I doubt Jim Buss is going to add more salary especially with the new CBA taking into effect.

    [QUOTE]Wow Mark/Gina gives a new definition to the term 'sour grapes' and mployee, Bass had nothing to do with it... if Jermaine was going to give us a 22 minute, 6 point, 8 rebound, 2 block season in 80% of the game and 100% of the playoff games... then I wouldn't have wasted our cap space on West But obviously nobody assumed that was going to happen
    Posted by rameakap[/QUOTE]

    Guess I didn't look at it that way ... I always saw West as a transition from KG to West at PF with KG spending more minutes as JON's backup and the balance at PF until West was 100% ... too bad LA messed up the Dallas destination for JON with their trade of Odom or West would have been here.

    He didn't DENY he said it - he said he didn't know where the reports came from!!  Can't deduce one from the other.  By the way, he'd be CRAZY to opt in - it's only one year, and he'd be one of the lowest paid starting PG's in the league!!  STILL waiting for your admission of the back to back playoff games, which I TOLD YOU would happen this year!!

    From today's LA TIMES:

    Sessions is expected to decline a $4.55-player option next season and become a free agent, but he said it was "100% clear" Kupchak and Brown wanted him back.

    "I definitely hope to be here. Hopefully everything works out. ... We'll just see what happens," Sessions said.


    He has until June 20 to inform the Lakers of his decision.


    When was the last time MarkfromCT was right about something??

    Yes I guess it could have had something to do w/ the LA deal, although I wouldn't say 'too bad' unless I knew that a Bynum-Kobe=Chris Paul team was still going to lose in round 2.

    As for West at the time of that rumored trade we already had Bass and Wilcox, so I assumed we'd just have Bass and West share PF, like 24 mins each, until West was 100% healthy, and give KG like 32 and Wilcox 16 at C. come playoff time Wilcon woulda been down to almost no minutes.

    Posted by aciemvp[/QUOTE]

    Great post and many of us have discussed the bad signing of Jermaine many times.  He didn't really help the Celtics and wasn't healthy most of the time.  He had a couple of good games that I can remember in his 2 years with the Celtics.  At least, Rasheed was a great help in the playoffs.  If we had a decent/good center we would be a much better team  Although, the loss of Chris Wilcox hurt also.

    dummy, a writer has said that he expects sessions to opt out.

    LA wants him back but they want him to opt in.

    The new luxury tax penalties don't take effect until the 2013-14 season.
    LA will most likely keep the amnesty available in case they decide to amnesty Gasol or Kobe a year from now.

    The difference between our season and LAs is that we did not have a championship level team, then Bradley came along and made us a huge longshot, now he's out and we're definitely not a championship team. 

    The Lakers on the other hand were a championship team but Kobe was unwilling to pass the ball. Must be rough to be a Lakers fan though we don't have any of them anymore in this forum. However, Mark from Ct, if you do run into a true Laker fan sometime you can pass this along: 


    Your franchise will not be championship caliber for years so we'd all appreciate it if you joined the rest of the troll contingent who were sensible  enough to move on.

    LINK????  While it MAY be true that Sessions has not said anything, I believe the agent does all the talking.  And you said so yourself (among many things like he would average 13 points and 10 assists EASILY and the NBA doesn't schedule back to back games in the playoffs, period) - LA wants him back, but they want him to opt in!  Of course they do, but they have no control over it.  And my comment has as much validity as yours does (more so after your other comments)

    Well the Bulls and Heat are going to be really tough for many years so that is not entirely true. And the Spurs don't have the lasting ability to remain at the top b/c once Duncan/Ginobli are gone they are no better than Boston or Denver or LA Clips (all teams with good PG's and young wings, assuming Boston has Green and some other FA's/draft picks to keep them elite).

    But yes now the Lakers will experience what the 80's/Celtics had to go through as far as the OKC Thunder being good for a long time.

    Philly '80-'85 was always a top 3 team

    Detroit '86-'91 was always a top 3 team

    LA didn't have to face them in their conference finals... and went 2-1 vs. Philly and 1-1 vs. Detroit in the finals

    Meanwhile Boston had to face those teams EVERY year, get beat to cr*p and if they advanced (5-4 record) they got to face an LA team that had a much easier time reaching the finals... oh wait... LA CHOKED and lost to the Rockets TWICE in te 80's.

    The 'what-if' game is obviously pointless... but in addition to the well-known issues in the 80's:

    1. Cowens retired 5 years earlier than he had to
    2. Max and Bird were hurt in '85
    3. Bias DIED
    4. McHale played on a broken foot, Walton/Wedman hurt in '87
    5. Red passing on McHale trade option (Schrempf/Sam Perkins) and on drafting Tim Hardaway (Michael Smith) in '89.

    There is the well-know FACT that had Boston played in the west they would have made nine straight NBA finals, LA likely would have had a rough time in the ECF with the '80-'86 Sixers and the '86-'90 Pistons and it would have been Boston with 5 titles and LA with 3.

    Of course you have to pay them.
    If LA amnesties Gasol or Kobe before the 2013-14 season, they are looking at saving tens of millions in luxury tax savings.

Sessions agent doesn't get asked the questions about it, Sessions does and did. If I don't know who Sessions agent is, I doubt you do or have heard him "do all the talking".

    All the years LA loses in the Western Conf. Finals or NBA Finals while Boston didn't make the playoffs or was eliminated early i nthe playoffs, Boston fans say "it's only about the rings".
    So, NOW it's about getting deep into the playoffs even if they have no chance of winning the title? I thought the only thing that matters is the titles?
