    Really happy to add Marc to the mix. Perfect choice and I did not expect Rob to be able to pull it off.

    Rob learned from the playoffs. He couldn't play Javale and Dwight was problematic vs the Rockets small ball. With Marc and Trezz, the Lakers can play many different lineups.

    AD/Marc
    Marc/Trezz
    AD/Trezz

    All options would have a floor spacer and someone who can dominate the paint whereas Javale+Trezz just leaves us below the rim centers. Once again, Lakers snag the best pieces and all of them are great fits for the team.

    “Marc is like ball .... he is circle back to his roots”

    Slava probably. Somewhere out there.

    Yeah, he’s not exactly mobile, but he’s smart and proven, and has Finals experience now from 2 seasons ago.

    No man, it's "Basketball is like ball, it's all a circle." Come on, get the lingo right.

    Don't forget that Marc is probably the best passing Center this side of the Joker.

    Drafted by us in 2007 and we finally get to see him play in P&G. It's been long overdue.

    Excellent signing. Props to Rob. Please stay healthy.

    This is going to preserve AD for the playoffs, which is huge.

    And it's Hedo Turkoglu, not Slava. ;)
