What Happened To You, Bro?

Nothing.













Massive bag of nothing.

Just wait til Kobe gives the okay sign...

Lakers just need willing bodies to play with Kobe.

This guy has lost it. If he could get his head on straight he would be an asset to many teams. You don't win sixth man of the year without having talent.

I agree!! Why not sign Lamar for the 2013/14 season at a reasonable price??

You tell me. His FG%, 3Pt FG% and FT% have dropped tremendously over the last couple of years.

Not to speak for OT but I think he was referring more to a live body. Don't think he meant the Lakers chances for a title run. I may be wrong but if this is what OT meant, I'd have to agree with him.

Same thing I was thinking. He can give Pau some rest and already knows how to play with Kobe and Pau.It's not like the Lakers are on a title run this year or anything. So why not?

Yes, that's what I'm thinking!!! :-)

Don't you think that your team has enough 'rentals' on the roster? Since they will basically be tanking this season it makes more sense to sign some young talent that may have a chance of sticking with the team in the future.

If you want a live body go sign T-MAC. LOL

Agree 100% and wish we had money and opportunity to sign young talent but with our hands tied this coming season, we're better with a one year throw away contract. If Lamar turns out to be Odom of old, we can extend him then. But for now, and again... our hands are tied!

Where and who are these "young talent" you speak of, that the Lakers can get for a reasonable price??

Good comment!!! That's the bottom line, the Lakers "hands are tied" this year!!!

Odom needs to organize his priorities. Does he want to be a basketball player, or a Kardashian?
