I think our money situation will dictate a choice,,,it's CP3 or the choice of Howard. My choice is CP3. Too much money already on DJ and Blake. A lot of guys here are on the money thingy,,so to you guys, how much are we already over the luxury tax? DTS is rich and is spending,,but I don't think he is like the Buss family that spends twice as much for a player then they need by having....

I don't think D12 would work for Clips as tempting as the notion is. I believe the Lakers lack of success is partially due to the fact that D12 needs to be the focal point of the team, which will never be the case as long as Kobe is there. With the Clippers it would be much greater as the team relies heavily on chemistry and guys knowing their roles. Signing D12 (judging by his track record....

I wouldn't want Dwight under basically any circumstances. He's a chump and overrated as a player. Maybe if he signed for the vet's minimum - and even then I'd have to think about it. ....

The clippers success is mostly due to balance between starters and bench, the exact balance the lakers don't have by putting all their eggs in one basket, they lose because their bench gets smoked everynight. Clipper GM's have done a stellar job, don't change a thing! Keep as many of the bench mob as possible.....a second rate center like Andre is fine because blake and everybody else has the ball....the Clippers have no problems, and don't need to trade for....

I don't think Howard coming here is a real possibility for many reasons. But the notion that people here wouldn't want him because he's overrated is beyond me. I can't stand him as a person, but there's little doubt that he's a top player. He's not back to his old self yet, but he's still one of the best(if not the best, when healthy) defensive players in the league. He's putting up 18 and 12 with 2.6 blocks. And if....

The reason why The Lakers suck ( got it right) is because they are old and can't compete with younger teams. hell, they can't compete with any teams. lol Even the Lakers fans are now realizing the excuse of Nash coming back to fix things is pretty much laughable. I said that a team like the Lakers would suffer if they lost one starter...Check! I said Nash doesn't fit the system or makeup of that team...Check! So what do the Lakers....

As overpaid DJ is, he's still cheaper than a max contract to DH, and he's grown on me over the last couple years, so I say keep DJ and let DH go find greener pastures elsewhere. We need the money to re-sign CP3 anyway. ....

IMO, the reason the lakers suck is because of the perimeter D. Dwight healthy or not, will struggle defensively because D12 is not an imposing defender like Bynum who can play D without leaving his feet. People are saying what we have seen for years, Kobe is not the first rate defender he has been getting credit for being. MWP still has fast hands and mouth, but he doesn't move his feet fast enough to be consider an elite defender anymore...after....

you put Howard on this team in DeAndre's place, with a great point guard and better pieces around him, you don't think this team would be better?
He makes too much money to not be the first option, so there would be a grand effort to get him the ball.....he gets hacked, and then 50% ft time, he dramatically slows down the game.....this is blakes show, lets keep it that way. ....

I don't know how many fans or analyst would agree with the notion of DJ being overpaid anymore He may still need work, but he has proven that he can, probably will get better. ....

I'd rather have Wade, and that is a total possibility.

Love Wade! Was one of my favorite players for a long time. With that said, I agree with Barkley. Wade is not the same player and he seems to be getting worse by the game. No thanks on Wade. ....

I'm not expecting Wade to be 2006 Wade, He is the ideal 3rd man on our 2014 roster and would only need to score 20 a game. I'm getting excited just thinking about....

^Don't think that amount for Blake includes the extra $ to the contract when he makes the All-Star team as a starter again and the "D.Rose stipulation" kicks in. ....

George comes after Butler goes. And I don't want Howard, he can't make free throws, he's declining, with that ailing back of his. He's an Awesome C, but we don't need one, DJ is slowly but SURELY improving, sweet stroke at the line, nice post game, and he's only 24, plus he and Blake work VERY well together. Proof of it last night. Dj is starting to live up to his salary, and he's only gonna get better. ....
