So the Lakers sign Derek Fisher. Good move or bad? Only time will tell. They have needed a defensive minded guard who can shoot, so I get it from that standpoint. But they need a consistant post presence far more than another guard at this point. Bynum, though he is full of potential, hasn't been consistant enough at this stage (I know that he'll only be 20 next season). And Kwame Brown flat out sucks. He has stone hands, and, when the sun shines on a dog's **** and he DOES catch the ball, he either turns it over or misses a two-footer. As I have stated before, Caron Butler(whom Kobe was close with) is leaps and bounds ahead of this hunk of garbage and Mitch GAVE him to the Wizards. But I'm getting off track here. I know it's unlikely, but this seriously seems like a signing that would set up a big deal. I don't know if it's for O'Neal or (hopefully) Garnett, but there just seems to be a vibe that something is brewing. Why else sign Fisher? It's an obvious attempt to keep Kobe, as they are tight and have the same agent. It makes sense from the standpoint that the Lakers would try and help along a young pg, but they have TWO. Why would LA need to groom 2 point guards for the future? I know that a KG deal is HIGHLY unlikely and almost impossible when you factor in the contracts and McHale's hatred for LA(which further proves what a horrible GM he is, balking at a chance to improve the future of his franchise because he dislikes a team that OWNED him in the 80's), but that is the only deal that makes sense for LA. Kobe has reportedly stated that the deal would keep him in Laker Gold; and he would be the perfect Robin to 24's Batman. Other than that, LA should hold form. They were 26-13 and had the 3rd best record in the league last year before injuries hit. I know it sounds like biased Laker mumbo-jumbo(and it kind of is), but I honestly believe that if they can stay healthy, they have the ability to do some damage and compete for the title. Do they have enough? Probably not, but if they can compete and progress, they are only a couple of years away from being a legit contender.
