AD and Cousins are tight


He's eligible for a ring? That seems a bit odd, but good for him. Hope to see him with our team next season.

The Elgin Baylor Ring...hell at least Elgin played 9 games. Come back and help us repeat and surpass Boston and earn your ring Demarcus. Become our Artest.

Give him a ring (he will probably decline), resign him to vet min, and let's see if he can make an impact next year.

Low risk high reward.

Next season will be even more unfriendly for bigs. I don't expect to see either D Howard or McGee next season.

One of our greatest strengths was our ability to morph into different teams. Need to go big? Dwight is up. Need to go small? Kief is up. We need the ability to go big to deal with Jokic.

Yes. Another guy we can go to offensively. The upside is high so he’s worth a roster spot,

The Lakers can give a ring to anyone they want.

These comments are odd..

Do you guys remember how bad he was playing?

He can't guard anyone.. He already was a poor defender to begin with. With the injuries it's even worse..

That's not the point..

Dwight was about the only player in the league that doesn't get absolutely abused by him. It's not about stopping him, it's about slowing him down and making him work.

Didnt we say the same about Rondo and Dwight when the season started? Again, if we can get him cheap and motivated, I can see him doing damage. The guy was a top 10 player at one point and can shoot.

For the vet minimum I’ll take a swing at him. Low risk high reward imo... Worst case they cut him again. Who do you have in mind for vet minimum?

Actually no.. we weren't..

Dwight did what I expected him to do.. Play good defense and board..

Cousins can't defend, and he'd be even worse in pick and roll defense where he's switched onto a guard.

Our defensive rating will dip significantly with him.

No thanks to Cousins.. You guys need to go back and look at some of his last performances lol... Especially how he was playing with the Warriors. Terrible..

You don't need an aged 7 foot center for that purpose is my point.

We did fine with McGee and Dwight this year.. One of the best defenses in the league.. If it aint broke leave it alone..
