    Fellas - don't you all know...........as soon as DH leaves, he's going to the LAKERS.........straight up for Pau Gasol.

    These are the reasons of lakers "fans" from the LA Times:

    1.  He's from LA

    2.  He hates playing in MN

    3.  Mitch always gets the guy he wants

    4.  Gasol could play with Rubio

    5.  His uncle is a Beach Boy

     

    4 reasons which make me loathe living out here.  Their "knowledge " of the game is frightening, and I don't mean that in a good way.

    They also think that because of the new TV deal, they can just "sign" Chris Paul.........

     

    For the record, I would Love Love in BOS.  We need to show Love some Love.  He will bounce back this year, and MN will probably make the playoffs.  I can't see him going anywhere!

    Love can opt out of his contract and become a free-agent next year or the following year.  If he tells MIN he is unhappy, they will trade him to avoid losing him for nothing. 

    If Minesota loses Pekovic this summer or if they overpay for him, Love will be tempted to form a "Big 3" somewhere else.

    If the Celtics get rid of Pierce (trade or amnesty) and send KG for Bledsoe and Jordan you'd have to wonder if Rondo-Bradley-Green and Jordan as the 4 starters around him is enough to lure Love to Boston?

    That team would contend right away, especially with the Heat getting older or maybe breaking up.

    The contracts of Terry (to LAC in KG deal?), Bass (?) and Lee (maybe moved in a deal w/ Pierce) would all have to be gone though.

    Additionally Bledsoe and Sully (if Love arrives) could be moved for a SG-SF scorer to complement combo forward Green and combo guard Bradley.

    If the lakers want him they will get him unfortunately.  They are not afraid to pay to put together a contender, unlike the celts brass.

    Last year: Lakers player payroll=$101mil

                    Celtics player payroll=$78mil

    Obviously it doesn't always translate (eat it LA), but which team is more dedicated to winning?

    the salary cap is also a factor. decisions that are made this year will affect us 2-3 years from now. have the lakers been smarter? maybe. but it's not just about which ownership is being cheap.
