How is Dion in the locker room? That's my concern.

Hmm... 12 man roster eh?


If you watched last night's Inside the Green Room episode, Jared and Danny said they were glad Lakers didn't make any trades because the chemistry in the locker room was one of the best they've ever been a part of. They also mentioned that the coach have rotations still in flux and that they would hope the rotation would get set sooner rather than later so they would be more comfortable with their roles come playoff time.


You be the judge, there are stories about locker room problems with Dion from Cleveland:

Maybe he wants the Lakers to sign J.R. cause the Lakers bench need some fire power. So sign the former NBA Champion & former Sixth Man of the Year? But then Dion is way younger. Former lottery pick and can score, can pass and can create his own shot.

Knuckle head but gotta take the gamble. Lebron cant do it all especially when the clips will put fresh defenders on him all game including KL PG. giannis will be on him as well should they meet.

I hope Seattle gets Waiters. The guy is a DOUCHE and highly over rated. He was a me first player at Syracuse and it NEVER changed.

This. Come playoff time he’ll come in handy in spurts. We have to counter the Clips with Their Lou Will and Reggie Jackson coming off the bench.

Shams is also represented by Klutch.

Dion should see how Dwight has salvaged his career on the Lakers.

Yes, he still is getting paid his full salary for next year thanks to Memphis, but still, his reputation is shot to shards.

And as you and others mentioned earlier, I’m more comfortable with a 28 year old than a 34 year old who hasn’t played in a really long time by NBA standards.

He’s also at creating off the dribble than JR.

JR is obviously the more gifted shooter. And shooters work with LBJ. But we have such a deficit in terms of guys who can theoretically score off the dribble.
