    Danny should bring him in for a look. Young and Athletic is whats good, could be a replacement for T Allen.

    Re: Shannon Brown anyone

    Your team can have him as we picked him up off the scrape heap a couple years ago.  We're going in a different direction by adding barnes and ratliff to artest and fisher to create a defense to be reckoned with this year.  Gotta love having artest with the take down of pierce and then having barnes come over and step on his arm to finish pierce off.  I can hear pierce now crying like a little baby while he is being carted off in a wheelchair.

    Make no mistake that Brown is a decent player, but it will not break us if we don't resign him.  I have a funny feeling that Mitch does not want to give anything to DA and his band of fools.  If Mitch can resign him obviously we would love to have him.  If Mitch continues to work the phones and resigns Brown then the Lakers will be 10 deep and probably the strongest bench in the entire NBA.  Enjoy!

    Sorry but Shannon Brown will most likely re-sign with the Lakers. Nothing but crumbs left for the Celtics. Tongue out

    Re: Shannon Brown anyone

    Mitch Kupchak had a huge off season. He took a championship roster and made it much deeper. The Lakers hold Shannon Brown's Bird rights, and can pay him more than the Celtics. Shannon is going to get more than the minimum from someone, so the chances the Celtics get a sniff is slim.

    Well the S & T for Barnes was good, the signing of Blake is meh. 
    What else was that great?  ROTFL if anyone is thinking Ratliff or the back of the bench rookies. 

    The C's don't have any great need for Brown. Thanks.

    Re: Shannon Brown anyone

    The Lakers bench is somewhat better than last year with Barnes.  Barnes is a solid addition.  Blake is a better alternative than they had to back up Fisher. 

    It's a good thing Orlando was willing to play ball on the S & T for Barnes. 

    That's about it until the younger players prove themselves.  I'd say the same about Bradley and Harongody.  I  been watching the Summer league and the three above who participated looked decent enough - for what that's worth.

    He's a very good young player. He would be a big addition if the C's land him.

    In Response to Re: Shannon Brown anyone : You forgot Ebanks.  I'm sure Caracter and Ebanks are the Second Coming to lakers fans.   We, of course, can tell " a lot" from summer league." Blake and Barnes are okay throwaways from other teams.  Also not sure how you can list Walton when your previous post said he may be out for the year.  Ratliff doesn't scare anyone, O'Neal is better, and Daniels is better than Barnes. Bye

    No, I did not forget about Ebanks. I am not sure he will make it through training camp. And no I don't think either of these players are the second coming. I do think Caracter has a reasonable chance to make it through camp onto the roster to fill Powell's former role though. These players you refer to as throw aways for the purpose of denigrating these roster moves, are in fact very solid role players. 

    You need good role players to win a championship usually. Daniels is not better than Barnes, as he wasn't good enough to even hardly play last year, and no one was vying for his services for a reason. In fact, if the Celtics would have been able to land Barnes, most Celtics fans would have been real happy to acquire a role player of that caliber for the bench. Ratliff is a 2 minute a game veteran reserve, he isn't designed to scare anyone. O'Neal isn't going to be measured against Ratliff, he will be filling a starting role, and playing against Bynum and Gasol, while Ratliff mostly sits.

    Rasheed Wallace is done, with no replacement yet, and Allen left with no one to come in to replace his important role. Perkins will be lucky to see the floor next year, and when he does he will be nursing a rehabbed knee. Losing Perkins, Wallace, and Allen, while adding O'Neal isn't exactly progress. What the Lakers have done is a far cry better than what the Celtics have accomplished thus far this off season.

    Also, signing Barnes kept him out of the hands of the Lakers' biggest threat. This was a no-brainer signing. If you have the chance for a steal that can be used against the enemy instead of by the enemy, you do it and be happy about it.

    There was no sign and trade for Barnes. Barnes took 1.75 million that was left of the MLE straight away.

    In Response to Re: Shannon Brown anyone : Blake - no one was after him, either Barnes - 8 teams in 8 years, and I never wanted him Ratliff - 800 years old Walton - prob out for the year Sasha - Sasha Too bad Phil doesn't play rookies, maybe next year Ebanks and Caracter will contribute Lost - Powell, Mbenga (so far) , Farmar, Brown (so far) and Morrison Celtics - lost Scal, Finley and T Allen Perk is hurt. Added or resigned - Robinson, Daniels, JON, Bradley, Harangody and Erdan. We still have Sheeds contract, Scal's contract and Vet Min. Right now, it's about even in terms of additions.  JON is actually an upgrade over Perk offensively.  If we get Shaq, would you still say the lakers off-season was better? Plenty of time left - and JON is Sheed's replacement.  Perk will start WHEN he comes back in Jan or Feb

    You can twist, dismiss, and spin this all day long, but the fact of the matter is the Lakers are coming off back to back championships, and as difficult as it is to improve a team in that circumstance, the Lakers managed to do just that. Considering the financial restraints the Lakers were forced to work within, they did an excellent job with their roster. You blatantly try to spin the Celtics moves into the best possible light, and the Lakers moves into the worst, and you still are left with a big pile of bullocks. 1 though 10, the Lakers have a top notch roster, and the Lakers are better than they were last year.

    Farmar goes, Blake comes in as an improvement. Again, spin this all you want, but this guy Blake is a much better player than Farmar, especially in the triangle. This guy upgrades the pg position, and improves the shooting from distance. Blake was one of the best free agent point guards available this year, he fits the Lakers offense perfectly, and yet, you still try to denigrate the signing of this back up PG. Biased much?

    Morrison, a consumate (DNP) goes, and in comes Matt Barnes as a replacement. How you find ways to denigrate this upgrade is beyond me. Eight teams in eight years, bla bla bla. This position was empty last year for the Lakers, and was filled by committee. This move is going to enable Kobe and Ron to get more rest, and this guy is the third best rebounder at the three spot in the whole NBA. So, the Lakers acquire a very competent wing defender to throw at all these small forward scorers currently wreaking havoc in the NBA, as well as rebounding and decent long distance shooting for 1.7 million and you still find ways to denigrate the move. Ridiculous commentary on your part.

    Mbenga, another habitual DNP goes, and a defensive, shot blocking Ratliff comes in to replace and of course more ridiculous denigration of the move. 

    Farmar to Blake is an upgrade.

    Morrison to Barnes is a huge upgrade.

    Mbenga to Ratliff is again an upgrade. 

    Powell to Caracter is a move for the future, and Caracter was a steal in the second round. This is a positive development any way you spin it.

    Bottom line, when the Celtics won their championship with this current group, the bench they employed was deep and balanced like the Lakers currently have going into this coming season. Since the Celtics won, they had a downgraded bench last year and lost, and so far, their bench has gotten worse this year. The Celtics lost Sheldon Williams and Tony Allen to free agency, Kendrick Perkins to injury, and Rasheed Wallace to retirement, while adding Jermaine O'Neal, and you are trying to creatively spin that into something comparable to what the Lakers did with their off season, and it is just ridiculous.

    Celtics are in same financial straights.  Barnes is not taking Morrison's "minutes".  Barnes is taking Sahsa and Luke minutes.  Walton may be out for the year, and they are trying to dump Sasha, but I'm sure you knew that.  Caracter taking Powell's "minutes" is another good one.  Phil doesn't play rookies, but I'm sure you knew that, too.  Ebanks is a better player than Caracter anyway.  Hence the potential Sasha dump!

    We lost Williams and TA - big deal.....oh and Scal and Finley.
    We KEPT Robinson, Davis and Daniels, and added JON, Bradley....and possibly two other pieces.  Our bench at the start of this season is better than the start of last season.  Lakers is also, but it is YOU trying to dismiss the Celtics moves.  I'm not trying to compare the two.  Right now, the lakers have improved their bench more......right now. But to say we have done nothing and are worse, is not accurate typical lakers double-speak.

    I'll await the spin on this one!
