    Kobe just put Lakers management on point with postgame statements to trade Pau Gasol or say they're not going to trade him.


    Quote:
    Kobe said he'd prefer Lakers don't trade Pau but said a decision needs to be made for Gasol to put his "whole heart" into game.


    Quote:
    Kobe called Pau "consummate professional" but said: "If your head's on the chopping block, it's hard to put all of yourself into the game."


    Bresnehan:

    Quote:
    Kobe on persistent Pau trade rumors: "I wish managament would come out and either trade him or not trade him."


    Quote:
    More Kobe on Pau: "It’s just tough for a player to give his all when you don’t know if you’re going to be here tomorrow."
    Needed to be said.. but they cant hamstring themselves by committing either way without a solid deal on the table Pau just gotta man the fuck up

    I hear we are making a push for Ramon Sessions, I like it he's a solid 4th option a good 3pt shooter that we desperately need and is less of a defensive liability then Fisher

    Also hearing we might get Beasley really really cheap. Things could get interesting post All-Star break.

    Great read here check it out
    Prior to the 2011-12 season, Lakers head coach Mike Brown was pretty excited about one of his (many) new coaching hires.

    Phil Handy, a former NBA player who had spent eight years playing professionally in Europe before returning stateside to run his own basketball training business, was set to be Brown's new player development coach. His mission statement simple, if not easy: make the players better.

    When the lockout was lifted in December, Handy packed his bags from his Bay Area home and departed for Los Angeles, eager to start working individually with every Laker from rookie Andrew Goudelock to Kobe Bryant.

    Handy joined us earlier this week to discuss how footwork and balance are the key to hoops success, how Kobe uses footwork before dribbling to create space (just like Michael Jordan), what drills he does with the rookies, how you improve a super-skilled player like Pau Gasol, what Metta World Peace must do to sharpen his jumper and more:

    it would be funny after all this speculation of trading one of the bigs, trading a draft pick, all this coverage on the Lakers' roster and absolutely nothing happens.

    Ugly win... but its a win.. love the aggression from pau

  • killapkillap Posts: 3,236 ✭✭✭✭
    Fish heard those trade rumors lol...Pau needs to know we need this every night
  • killapkillap Posts: 3,236 ✭✭✭✭
    Honestly though if we can scoop Beasley and Sessions without giving up anything major I say do it, it will sure up our bench a little
