    I wish we can trade Amare to the Bobcats and get an inspiring contracts and maybe one their prospects in Walker or Biyombo.

    I can't wait until that game where the Lakers are getting demolished on the boards, and MDA keeps Dwight on the bench cause...ya know....substitution patterns...you can't break from them.

    It's the less tangible things that MDA does that really pissed me the **** off. Unwillingness (incapability???) to adjust on the fly. Supreme stubbornness to the point it seems he'd rather set the ship ablaze and watch it burn and sink as opposed to even remotely consider steering it the direction that someone else suggested, especially when your route doesn't seem to be taking it anywhere.

    Just wait...I can see either a combo of Lee/Bogut/Ezeli or Thompson/Cousins/Hayes, grabbing boards left right and center, and Kobe is looking at MDA like "why in the hell is Jamison still out here??!?!" and MDA is like:

    In other news, this is the worst day of Jordan Hill's life. Back in the ol' D'Antoni dog house.

    Amare and Kurt Thomas for Pau Gasol and Jordan Hill?

    ohhh man that would make me harder then a morning bone if we somehow got young talent in return for Amare but what scares me is if we do trade him Novak, Smith, and/or Shumpert would likely be wanted by the other team

    Yeah every Lakers fan I've talked to who wants Amar'e also wants JR Smith with him.

    I don't wanna turn this thread into an Amar'e Stoudemire trade thread but all the analysts who talk about how "Untradeable" Amar'e is is ridiculous. There are plenty of lottery teams and small market teams who need to sell tickets and would be happy to give us a solid offer for Amar'e. The Pistons, Bobcats, Kings, and Cavs just to name a few.

    It starts and ends with talent. Coach plays a factor, but to an extent.



    If D'Antoni wants to be successful, he has to be a players coach for the Lakers. Nash, Bryant and Gasol are all qualified to be player-coaches. These are probably the smartest group of guys you can assemble on a court together...if D'Antoni pulls up some crazy play...I can see Bryant losing respect for Mike real fast.
    Agreed. And he is not going to pull off this crazy Princton offense stuff with Dwight on high post. I mean, thinking out of the box is a good thing, but turning the NBA's most turnover-prone big man into a high-post player? What was Mike Brown thinking?

    Mike and Nash had the best offense in the NBA of this decade.

    Just need Howard and World Peace to be defensive anchors.
    I bed to differ, Kobe and Phil only won 5 chips and went to 7.

    How the hell does D`Antoni keep failing and then getting a bigger, more high profile job at successively bigger teams? It`s a complete mystery.

    I can`t wait to see Dwight on the perimeter shooting threes.

    OKC should hire him

    But they won't because they have zero ambition. (see harden trade and who they got in return)
