Very simple question: Who would you keep, Shaq or Kobe?
Kobe's a punk, and he's arrogant, and can't carry that team w/out shaq.
Shaq is not as dominant as he was a few years back since hes aging. I'd dump him to Dallas, get Nash + Finley + Howard and buiid from there with Kobe in the mix.
Dont get me wrong, he is still the most dominant player in the game, but he's going downhill and will continue to do so at a much more rapid pace for years to come.
I'd keep Shaq because he's got 2-3 solid years left in him and I'm the type of guy who wants to win now, they can worry about the future later. Shaq just needs to lose some weight to regain that quickness he had at 300-310 pounds. Kobe is another Tracy McGrady w/out Shaq
i hope they trade shaq so everyone can see how much the rapist sucks without him, and then they lose all their fake fans, go celts
I hope the Lakers blow up and don't make the playoffs...I hate the Lakers...Go Spurs Go!!! 2005 NBA champs...you heard it here first.
I would take shaq if he could get back down to 300-310 pounds. Until then i am with kobe. At the end of a game and you need a basket or a play made Kobe is the better choice.
No, I think we will keep it here in D town. Oh yeah thanks for getting beat by the lakers it made it easier for us to win the title. I think we would've had a tuffer time with the spurs.Originally Posted by Manu20
You sure would have.Originally Posted by rsray1975
Hey M20, whad'ya think about last night's draft picks?
Kobe. Shaq's asking too much. Greedy slob's already got two of the seven sins down to a T.
I think it may come down to who is more injury prone. Shaq has had his share, and keeps getting worse as he ages and puts on weight. Kobe is still fresh, but I agree he is arrogant, and I believe he takes a lot of unnecessary risks (on the court and off the court).
The Lakers should stay with who they built this team around in the first place, which is Shaq. They may need to cut his playing time down some to help preserve him for the future.
Shaq won't play for another coach, so if he goes so does shaq. Kobe is the better player and he is gonna be a ball hog when he is one of two players on a team.
BTW I am from Michigan so I like the Lakers, they made us look so damn good.
I thought the pick was ok...we needed a back up point guard and I didn't think any of the college guys were worth a guaranteed contract at that point. And I think had the Spurs been in the finals they would have beaten the pistons...oh well though guess I'll have to wait for next year.
You guys are spoiled, I'm a Warriors fan. I thought the Warriors pick was risky. They say he can play like Darko Milicic, I don't know if that's a good or a bad thing so what do you guys think, especially the Pistons fans ?
Yeah its hard to say what Andris Biedrins will do. I feel players like him and darko your not going to see anything for atleast 3 year min. Most players straight out of high school dont do jack **** for atleast their first 3 years. I know Lebron and Carmelo are the exception. I do Know that if we would have drafted Carmelo instead of Darko he wouldnt have came here scoring 20+ points a game. Also Players like Darko and Andris dont even play against the top comp in their country. They are a work in progress.Originally Posted by Iron Warrior
Well, that may happen with Jackson no longer being the Lakers coach.Originally Posted by bigmark1972
I thought both Udrich and Sato were both steals at their respective draft positions. Beno had the strongest showing of all participants @ the Chicago predraft camp and is probably ready to come in and back up TP now and Romain is a lockdown-type D guy who although is only 6'3" - 6'5" depending on who you ask has a 7' wingspan and a measured vertical of 36.5".Originally Posted by Manu20
You ever go on spursreport?
I had a feeling they were going w/Biedrins. Looks like the only reason I'll be paying a visit to NA Coliseum is to check out some of the other teams in the league.Originally Posted by Iron Warrior
I liked what I saw of Beno and Sato did good in the NCAA tournament. Thats a good site...I never knew of it...I live in SA so I usually just read the newspaper but that site has a lot of good info on it.Originally Posted by Supa Freek 420
at this point you stick with kobe bryant,,,who by no means is on the same level as t-mac,,,,hes on another dimension ,,,kobes defense ****s on tmac,,anyone can take 20-30 shots a game and score like tracy mcgrady...shaq is gone,,,sucks cuz u cannot replace his fat ass ,,, they should keep shaq one more year,,,,and then send his ass wherever and lure Yao Ming to LA when his contract is up,,,,the biggest chinese population is in LA,, and for sure Yao is gonna be the ****....i just hope shaq doesnt leave and decide to get in shape and come back on another team and tear it up
