Had Jordan Clarkson signed in July before Lakers used their cap room up - he would have been eligible for a 3 or 4-yr deal -not today though
I don't have guarantee details yet but Jordan Clarkson's contract with Lakers is for 2 years at min
Lakers only have the min to offer Jordan Clarkson - 1 or 2 years - need cap room to do longer
Given Kobe/X/Young can play 3 - Lakers arguably have 9 forwards - though Hill likely mostly a 5 this year
As already tweeted - I hear Lakers liked Beasley workout - though given their long list of forwards, MB may be looking at other options 1st
Lakers make signing of Jordan Clarkson official
The Lakers have signed Jordan Clarkson
Is it too early to make a Clippers-Lakers analogy with City and United?
Watching lakers vs kings game 4 in 2002.. I'm on like a kid in the candy shop. I'm excited as hell.
New Vegas odds via Bovada. Cavaliers now w/ Love have 5/2 odds to win title, while Spurs have 4/1 odds. Lakers? 66/1. Sixers? 300/1
The Los Angeles Lakers have 66/1 odds to win the 2015 NBA championship. The same as the Charlotte Hornets.
Not sure if it was intentional but shoutout to Adam Levine for wearing the "Fletch" Lakers jersey on the red carpet.
Why should we care what Kobe's trade value is? The Lakers don't. He's not being traded no matter what he's paid.
Watching the 2008 Lakers playoff run. (I'm bored.) Amazing that team made it to the NBA Finals without Andrew Bynum and Trevor Ariza.
In fact, I was fortunate enough to cover Lakers/HEAT in LA last year & LBJ spent at least 5 minutes with us simply showering Bean w/praise.
Lakers PT guru Judy Seto on Kobe's acumen: "He could speak to another medical professional and keep up with the conversation no problem."
"Conspicuously,no one wears generic Lakers gear. They do not care about the team, only Kobe" Still cant tell if this is China or my mentions
I think it's worth noting - Lakers have a pretty light version of an 82-game schedule - few b2b, no extended road trips, etc.
I have Lakers like last year's Wolves - who were in it for a while til they weren't - once they weren't they shut it down-dropped to 40 wins
If Lakers realize they are out in March - that could lead to a dip in 5-7 wins overall vs. competing on bubble through April
Finished my run through the Lakers schedule - will post my take in the morning - issue is LAL needs West to get worse - tall order on paper
