      In the interview with Frank:

      Q: What do you know about the New York Knicks?
      A: That it is a great organisation…

    Lakerholic Capologists: Got a second question for you.

    The projected salary cap has gone down. What does that mean for our marginal spending/holds on the kiddies?

    Paging all Lakerholic Capologists!

    Just heard that the spurs are open to trading Danny Green – someone who defends and can drain a 3! (http://nba.nbcsports.com/2017/06/21/spurs-reportedly-open-to-trading-danny-green-which-could-be-final-straw-for-getting-chris-paul/)

    Can we just absorb his contract without sending too much back?

      The team has the cap space to absorb him outright. Just don’t expect him to opt out and take less money like the Spurs get guys to do.

    I just did a screen grab of the Lakers website – not clear that it’s completed yet.

    Just an FYI. I’d show the screen grab but apparently I’m not allowed to upload the photo?

    Hey everyone,

    Just wanted to pop over another resource for NBA news that is reputable. I knew about their NFL coverage, and now that I found the NBA coverage, I think it would be important to check it out – especially since draft speculation is starting to ramp up.

    Hope you all are having a good week so far!

    Question, for everyone who has been following Men’s NCAA basketball this season:

    Is there anyone out there who is ready to step in and play NBA defense like Justice Winslow? We need some players who can play D in my opinion. Throw some names/teams my way and I’ll do my best to check out their games while out here in the UK.

    Hope everyone is doing well!

          They lost to TCU in the Big 12 Tournament. But, he’s still one helluva defender.

  • Caliphilosopher

    Caliphilosopher 4:21 PM on February 13, 2017 Permalink  

    Just a thought: If there’s one younger player whom I’d give a max contract to in the off-season to bank on their continued improvement, it’d be Otto Porter Jr. We could use someone like him.

    He blasts triples, does a whole bunch of things well, and is on the career trajectory (4th year player who is still 23) for a bunch of growth.

    Hope you all are well. Back to your regularly scheduled programming. :-)

    Just a quick question: I am watching the Raps/Jazz game right now, and they cut to the intermission entertainment (Mini Raptor? Really?). Is it really that bad all over the league?

    Do they still do half-court shots and everything? At halftime, I remember heading downstairs to get a pastrami sandwich (extra pickles) at the Forum. That “Mini-Raptor” just ain’t cutting it.

        Another one of the intermission pieces was “Top 5 Viral Videos”. Getting visual click-bait? I’d prefer something basketball related -- like “Top 10 Ankle-Breakers of the week”.

        MM -- do they serve poutine at Raps games? If so, I feel like I’d be hard-pressed to watch anything over having some poutine. C’est Magnifique!

          Yes, they do…Cali…when we get around to publishing…I’ll have to show you.

          The Raps also have done away with handing out paper version of box scores and email them to media and fans.

          I hope more teams do this.

            Smart call -- especially if there is a Raps app (distinctive from the NBA app). Get all your stats as the game goes along (including the advanced stuff).

            Deal on the poutine then! I sure can’t wait to go to Canadia. I may be out in BC for a conference later this year. Gotta see if I get accepted.

      Halftime -- Jazz up 4. Gobert is a beast, but he had a sequence where he wasn’t focused. I expect someone like him to just blast when you are 2-3ft. from the rim, but he missed a few bunnies and couldn’t get a few defensive rebounds. Should’ve had a double-double by halftime.

        Superior Rim Protector…A lot of it is skill…he rarely makes mistakes and has the ability to anticipate correcting teammates mistakes…comes off as a film junkie to me…must be a studious person, has to be.

          Yeah, I love everything that he does -- right before halftime he took the ball after a dribble hand-off (as the screener), couple of dribbles, and then just blasted-off for a 2-hand jam. Given how talented he is, I just found that silly mistakes stuff to be unacceptable (for him).

          I’m expecting him to put up a triple-double (points, rebounds, blocks) at some point in the next year or two.

            Yeah, that’s gonna come. The game seems to come to him at a fixed pace.

            Dude averages 5.9 screen assists. An old school center, sets picks with a purpose, not just for style…like I don’t know…DeAndre Jordan. Lol.

              Lucas deserves more minutes…a novel idea but Coach Casey is playing the 5 guys who play the best for the Raps :) who knew that would work. Lol.

              I would like to see Bruno play more..given the way T-Ross and Norm are playing…not a lot of minutes to go around on the perimeter.

              Something about these Brazilians…they play the game the way it’s supposed to be played. Very hard, strong fundamentals and coachable.

              Still surprised the Hawks gave up LouWill and Lucas in that deal. Bully for Masai!

I just wanted to share that I am officially ABD (All But Dissertation) and am happy to have had some really excellent people to chat Lakers basketball with as I’ve been traversing the world doing this academia thing.

    Quick Question: Do the Lakers have enough cap room to absorb Bogut or Livingston?

    Should we help them out?

     
    • GDUBinDC

      GDUBinDC 11:35 AM on July 4, 2016 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      But wouldn’t Bogut pretty much be duplicating the Mozgov acquisition?

      And I doubt the Dubs’ll let Shaun go.

        Hi GDUB,

        Well, I was thinking that we need talent at all positions. Just want to have enough to have options for a rotation. Having Either Mosgov or Bogut in at all times seems to be an upgrade on Hibbert, even if they split the minutes evenly that can keep them both hopefully respectably healthy for a potential push after the all-star break. This is because I don’t expect Bogut to be full speed until December due to the injury.

        • GDUBinDC

          GDUBinDC 11:42 AM on July 4, 2016 Permalink | Log in to Reply

          Well, almost any option would be an upgrade on Roy. LOL But, I don’t think they would necessarily want 2 centers with the same skill set, Cali. I’m pretty sure Luke would want a backup that could better fit the so-called ‘small ball’ option. Don’t see either Timofey or Andrew filling that particular role.

            Yeah, that’s absolutely fair and understandable. Who do you project to be our version of Dray -- Tariq? I am interested to see what he can do since he didn’t get much burn last season.

            Also, I am interested to see if we could get Terrance Jones to play for us too.

          Oh, don’t get me wrong, Cali … I would LUV to get Shaun, I just think the Dubs may value his role on the team too much to let him get away. We’ll see tho.

            Yeah you’re exactly right -- especially for the job he did when Steph was out during the playoffs.

            I’m just thinking about gathering talent and seeing how they grow.

            BTW, what do you think about the Mahinmi signing? And the other stuff happening with the Wiz?

              I like the Ian deal, actually woulda preferred we had gotten him, but it is what it is. I also like the Nicholson deal, too … both those guys should be solid contributors. I think the Zards(Wiz) did about as well as could be expected with what they had left to work with after they decided to max Bradley.

        • mclyne32 (Director) 12:06 PM on July 4, 2016 Permalink | Log in to Reply

          What up Cali?
          If we didn’t already agree to sign Mozgov, I would be up for Bogut. To have both would wrap up a huge percentage of our cap moving forward for guys who pretty much do the same things. I think the edge in passing goes to Bogut, but in cumulative health over their careers, the scale tips towards Mozgov.
          Livingston would be the perfect backup to Russel. He has broken through so much adversity through his career that he can impart to all of our youngsters and is another lengthy body that is needed to play good defense.

        Why not, we’re five years behind them on the competitive time line.

        And why not help the players go to Luke. Good for them.

          Aloha Michael and Tom,

          I have been checking the rumors and it seems that the Spurs may offer Gasol a deal, so they may be out of the running cap-room wise. Shaun would make a formidable addition to the team. I am all in for getting him to come by, and perhaps we could add Rudez too.

          This has to be bye-bye to BobbySox and R.Kelly.

    Hey everyone,

    Free Agency is about a day away. Here’s whom I think we should be looking at to build the roster. These picks are with an eye towards growth and cohesiveness. Also, the list is not ranked by preference.

    1) Solomon Hill
    2) Jordan Hamilton
    3) Chandler Parsons
    4) Damjan Rudez
    5) Meyers Leonard
    6) Bismack Byombo
    7) Tyler Zeller
    8) Hassan Whiteside

    Just some bigs and F/C players I could think of offhand that are young and obtainable targets. This also presumes that the status-quo will hold for the guards.

    MM, Tom, Seely, Tate, Keen, Jamie, GDub, LRob, Justa, Yellow and anyone I’ve missed – your thoughts are always welcome.

    :-)

      My list was obviously an attempt at humor yesterday, but your list somewhat reflects reality. Jordan Hamilton? No. Love the Rudez idea, but how about adding Andrew Nicholson to that list? I also think there’s a strong chance that Brandon Bass returns. I might add Kent Bazemore to the list, too, if the Hawks go hard after Dwight Howard. Also, Jodie Meeks is supposedly on the trade market. A bunch of former Lakers from our crappy teams who got away. :)

      I have said for a long time that our final roster won’t look anything like the hypothetical rosters posted by WT and others. Were Lou Williams, Brandon Bass and Roy Hibbert on anyone’s shopping lists last year. Speaking of Roy, any predictions where he winds up playing?

        Hi Keen,

        You can definitely add Andrew Nicholson to that list. Hadn’t seen much of him during the season. Did he play more G than F? Or a bit of a combo?

        Off hand, why do you not like Jordan Hamilton? The per-36 numbers look promising for a young player.

        Keeping Brandon Bass would also work for me too. I like his game.

        1) Al Horford- he won’t sign here
        2) Hassan Whiteside- he won’t sign here
        3) Bismack Biyombo- he won’t sign here

        4) Kent Bazemore- very doubtful
        5) Nic Batum- not happening
        6) Chandler Parsons- if we offer him a max deal; hope not

        7) Ryan Anderson- nope
        8) Jared Dudley- sure, why not
        9) Alan Crabbe- forget it

        Like I said, your list does not reflect reality.

        Good morning Tom,

        I am worried that we won’t be able to get Horford. Bazemore I am slightly worried about because he and Ingram play the same position, and I’m pretty sure he wants to start. For me, Nic doesn’t shoot 3s as well but I would be glad to have him on the squad as a 3rd/4th option where he doesn’t have the pressure to try to drop 20 a night.

        Of the last three, I’d love to get Alan Crabbe (Go Bears!) but I think Portland will match anything. Back injuries scare me (Ryan Anderson).

        I think that we should get at least a few of the young ones so that we can start to build a squad like the Jazz.

      hey Cali

      would love to share any insights but don’t sorry don’t have much to offer on those guys.. mostly lower /middle tier FA haven’t seen much of except for

      whiteside- see his tremendous upside but have my doubts about maxing out a one year flash in the plan guy. esp since he was not consistently good in the playoffs

      chandler- he would be a great fit in Luke’s offense. yes for the right price

      Hope all is well my friend!

        Cali --

        Whether we tend a qualifying offer to Huertas, or, sign a FA, there needs to be a veteran PG presence to mentor Russell and Clarkson. Odds of landing Conely are nonexistent. Rajon Rondo, Aaron Brooks, Ronnie Price are available targets. As Mr. Keen alluded to, Jared Dudley, (one of the better 3pt shooters in the league) is a viable target. Jerryd Bayless (43.7 from behind the arc). Might even be able to rehab Ty Lawson. Lot of low hanging fruit out there, that can contribute.

      Like the Forward list. Hill and Hamilton get after it on D.

      Like Rudez, seen him in person. More than a 3pt shooter.

      I’d like Sergio Rodriguez, efficient.

      If we get any of those Bigs , I’d be jovial.

        Hey MM,

        Yeah, I think that if we just get a group of players together and give them a chance to really establish themselves, that something positive can pay off. Kinda like getting team together that has a “bench mob” mentality 1 through 15.

        For the bigs I just want people who really want to set some picks, clean that glass, and blast off Lamar Odom style to the cup (“Get out of my way, Saturn!”).

      Of that list, Cali … I wouldn’t mind having either of Hill, Rudez, Leonard, Biyombo, or Whiteside.

    Banned? Banned? 

    First – Hope you and yours are having a nice start to your 2016

    Second – I pop back on here and people are banned? Can anyone give me the long story short?

    Third – If I am partially responsible for the banning, I apologise. I think I’ll be able to pop up some content this term (as I’m working on dissertating from here on out, it looks like). I have some interesting thoughts that I would like to share with everyone.

    Hope your weekend is going well (and it’s roughly around 45 days until pitchers and catchers have to report haha) and I’m looking forward to chatting with you all again.

    Sincerely,

    Cali

    One thing I noticed about the Suns trades: Philly now has the rights to this year’s pick if the Lake Show fall out of the tip 5. So we really need to make sure that the team is focused on development or Philly could get 2 picks in the top 6!

    Just checking in for the game tonight.

    Again, hoping that Jordan takes another step in his development.

    Hope everyone is doing well.

        Hey GDUB, things are going well. Just working on some projects and a potential new opportunity for personal growth. Won’t know about that though for about a month.

        I just want to see plenty of positive development from the youngsters. :-)

          Good to hear, Cali … I’m lookin’ forward to seeing how the youngins do, too. I’m goin’ back and forth between this game and my Zards who r battling with the Nuggets in OT right now.

            Boy, the Zards escape with the W, but Pierce made a boneheaded inbounds pass with just a coupla ticks on the clock that almost allowed the Nuggets to tie it and force a 2nd OT. SMH

              Good win, just the same. It is too bad that Booz can’t go to a team that has a chance, He is about the best we have. Hill not too bad tonight and Bobbysox, woohoo! Gotta DVR the rest. We is just sooooo bad. And that’s a good thang (Pick) , huh?

      Checking in Cali!

      Word on the Jordan Clarckson Experiment is that he’ll be starting for 15-20 games. Not sure what that means for Lin as Price has stayed steady when he’s healthy. I hope we’re working on a trade for Lin…
