07:59 AM ET 12.06 | Here's wondering if Mike D'Antoni considered how sideways things could go in Los Angeles, where the headlining drama this week revolves around the future of Pau Gasol. Rival executives believe the most likely landing spot for Gasol is Toronto, which could offer Andrea Bargnani in return. ... Sources say Raptors GM Bryan Colangelo has shown no willingness to part with Bargnani, but if pressure mounts for him to bolster the team's youth movement and win now by adding a veteran with All-Star credentials like Gasol, that could change. On one hand, if Lakers fans thought Gasol was soft, wait until they get a load of Bargnani. But he's younger (27), makes half as much (though he has one more year on his deal) and would be the ideal floor-spacer.

Damn, I hope the Lakers can wait for Nash in order to see how Gasol will perform with him. Give a try before pulling the trigger.

Bargnani is a floor spacer on defence. Actually no wait, he's dead weight on defence.

For Gasol's sake I hope he gets traded now so that the fanatics could stop blaming him. Get rid of his sorry **** Kobe, Dumbtonie, and the fanatics wants him traded so bad. I can tell you he is not the problem. It's Dumbtonie's bad coaching and having no control over he's superstar.

You hate dumbtoni more than I dislike him. lol

No...place the blame where it truly belongs and that on the shoulders of Kid Buss for pickin Dumbtoni, and Dumbtoni, well, for being Dumbtoni. A very stout 3-5 record since being hired and a team with major defensive flaws and well no direction, a very typical Dumbtoni team. Just look how he had the Knicks, until being fired, now look at the stability there now. Lakers you will truly regret this dumb move in Dumbtoni. Kid Buss, Jerry Jones, Jimmy Boy Dolan, and Danny Boy Synder are too egotistical and stupid to realize this though!

Considering they fired Brown after a hiccup of games, I wouldn't count on patience.

If that means Phil back, that's fine with me.
