Kinda excited to see how he does. Want him to shut the haters up. People act like Clarkson wasn't a ball stopper and iso player.


Clarkson accepted his role as a Super 6th man off the bench which helped enable and foster that playstyle and made it work with the team.

Will Isaiah accept that role?

I'd imagine a contender would be thrilled to pick up IT if he acts that way.

I think he'll be on his best behavior lest he loses a ton of $$$ in FA for being a malcontent/cancer to team.

Thanks for the laugh


I am actually with pjdiddy on this. BUT it is not outside the realm of possibility that he will contribute within the flow off the offense and I will be pleasantly surprised if that is the case.

Oh Gawd Man, you had to bring up Lawler. I was having a nice day here and now I have Bingo stuck in my head. Don't get me started on Lawler's Law:(

There was a lot of pressure put on IT when he came back from injury. Over here there is no pressure. Give him a lot of minutes whether is starting or off the bench. He knows Lonzo is the starting PG. If he acts up waive him.

Such a no lose all leverage position for us.

Play off the bench, handle the rock, score at will and showcase yourself for your next contract.

Act up...even a little...and you're gone and good luck getting a contract longer than 2 years and vet min.

We've been winning without you.

This is going to work out great for us.

Clarkson might have accepted his role but he was apart of our teams misery the last couple of years, whatever he did right wasnít making a difference.... actually as a whole the whole team just didnít have that winning mentality this is why some of the other players on the team should be lucky they didnít get traded like Clarkson and Nance... Magic has already said if players arenít willing to buy in they will be traded.... even if IT canít return to 80% of his Celtics form, he is elite offensively compared to Clarkson... he can erupt for big offensive numbers if heís on a roll.

The Cavs situation was a hell hole, with our environment he will feel more relaxed

Thanks. I just bought some ball hog gloves.
Hmm. Look at those bums in purple.
Can't believe most of those guys are not on the team anymore.

Welcome to the Bench you over rated Derrick Rose broken down wanna-be. You are an absolute waste of a player and my hope is that you blow out your ACL so I don't have to watch you put on the Purple and Gold.

Personally, I'm a fan of IT. He was great last year in Boston playing for a good coach on a good system. Sacramento and Phoenix are both crappy organizations, and Cleveland is pretty much an LBJ-run penitentiary. I'd love to give him a shot in these next few months and see what he can do. I think that when right he is a very good player.

Isaiah Thomas and Channing Frye are joining the team tonight in Dallas, and pending results of routine physicals, will be available for shootaround tomorrow morning and the game tomorrow night.

I'm glad I'm not alone @ LG rooting for IT to do well here!!

I was almost alone here years ago wanting us to get IT when he wanted to come here and was cheap. So glad we have a chance to see what he can do here with us for the remainder of the season. Had he not gotten injured we never would've had this chance....I hope it works out for us.

Can't wait for tomorrow's game!

Damn, why all the hate? This man is a Laker now, he's fam.

He can play alongside either Hart or KCP to balance off his difficulties on the defensive end.

Prediction: IT scores 15+ tomorrow and the haters all of a sudden change their tune.

Jeez guys, hating IT already? The guy has been through a lot of crap for almost a year.

Iím excited to see a potentially motivated and rejuvenated IT. He shot much better in his last game with the Cavs so he might be peaking back at just he right time for us.

Plus he grew up as a big Laker fan and wanted to sign here a few years ago.

You think Frye will get a lot of minutes right away? I think he'll play a little tomorrow but not enough score in double digits. IT will get the minutes but I have a feeling shooting % is not going to be good in his first game. Hope I'm wrong of course.
