What if indeed CP3 comes to the lakers, and we managed to get Melo and Wade will come out of retirement to join the banana team. What's your thought. Will the management gamble for this?

With the way Melo is playing with the Blazers, I think he can play even better with LBJ. The only problem is Wade's condition. He's out of shape right now. The only other problem is if Rondo is still in, will he and CP3 mend each other.

Why exactly? I mean might as well bring back bosh, deron williams, tyson chandler, amare stoudemire, carlos boozer and tayshaun prince at that point too

Only player we should consider getting back for another ring is Pau gasol.

Just remember what won the Lakers #17:

1) DEFENSE
2) All the role guys starring in their role
3) Amazing team chemistry

CP3 is too complicated unless there is amnesty in OKC somehow uses it. Wade talk is nonsense, but Melo could become a possibility. He would be a nice stretch 4 and may do it.

Wade is almost 39 and was already in decline before he retired a year ago. He has talked about how the players in the league were becoming too fast for him. He's gone through jersey retirement ceremonies and has been doing other things. I'd be very surprised if he comes out of retirement, and I don't see that he would be useful to us as anything other than a name.

Apparently, Melo wants a major role and major minutes on some team. Don't see that happening here.

I would love to see a trade for Paul but I don’t think it will happen because of what you posted, too complicated.

Spoiler Alert:

Carmelo Anthony was never on the Banana Boat.

No, management will not gamble on that boatload. Melo looks a poor fit with AD here. Wade is done done done. Prince more so still, he's been for a long time now.

Finding some other puzzle pieces for run at 2021, sure, the LAL will try to find some bargains and old guys - like everyone tries to do.

Now you made me reminisced about the 2008 Olympics Gold medal game when Kobe carried that team in the 4th against Spain. That was vintage Kobe, he was the alpha among the alphas and everyone on that team was looking for him and he pretty answered everytime Spain rallied to make it close.
