With news from Ireland, that TheRealDeal posted somewhere in the depths of the DAR thread, that the Lakers could be remodeling this offseason with as many as 7 or 8 guys off the roster, where do you guys rank our young guys with each other? And who/how many are you willing to give up this offseason? What is your outlook on maximizing the young guys you want to keep?

For me, my list is....

1.) Ingram
2.) Zubac
3.) Randle
4.) Russell*/Top pick*
5.) Nance
6.) Clarkson
7.) Black
8.) Nwaba
9.) Hou 1st

(Guys that aren't included: Ennis, MWP, Moz, Deng, TRob, MWP, Young)

1-3 are my keepers, 4-9 can go in a trade to get a star player back. If we end up with a top 3 pick, that gets placed at 4 in an either/or scenario where a team can take Russell or the pick, not both. IMO to adequately develop players we need to limit how many we have and get great veteran players around them. If we keep everyone and get lucky enough to keep both picks, we will be going into next season trying develop...

Long time no post!

I'm going to the game tonight in Denver with my sister. She'll be rocking a home Gasol jersey, I'll have an away Shaq jersey.

We're going all out, and want to represent. I've been trying to think of a good sign to get on TNT - something creative, relevant, and/or funny. Of course, I also want to rep the Lakers in a good light - so I can't do a sign about D'Angelo's fall last night lol.

Any suggestions? Keep in mind, at this point I have just a couple hours to make it. Would be much appreciated. We may be able to get some autographs too, so I'll update you on that, with pictures too.

Thanks LB!

It was long past time for Jeanie Buss to head home. Her headache had turned into a full-blown migraine hours ago -- spots in her field of vision; throbbing at the back of her skull; the works.

It was 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 24, and she had a few last calls to make before she could turn off the lights, leave the office and close the book on this, one of the most tumultuous weeks in Los Angeles Lakers history.

Earlier that week, with the Lakers headed toward a fourth straight losing season, Jeanie Buss fired Lakers executive vice president of player personnel, her brother Jim Buss, longtime general manager Mitch Kupchak and communications director John Black. At the same time, she promoted Lakers great (and recently hired advisor) Magic Johnson to president of...
