    should the Lakers try to sign Al Farouq Amino and Anthony Morrow?

  • jay

    or what reasonable free agent you’d like the Lakers to sign?

  • HardcoreLakerfansinceNickyVan

    Someone tell Kobe that Duncan took much less money and the Spurs can build solid teams because of that. That is why Duncan is always in the playoffs and contending. I can’t stress enough that stupid deal Kobe signed. It sets us back a few yrs.

      What does his contract have to do with this article? take ur dumbass comments to a heat forum, Imbecile.

      • Gekko

        If the most important thing to Kobe is the money in the contract, there is nothing wrong with that. However, Tim Duncan is one of the best power forwards ever and he took less money in order for the team to stay competitive. Less money for Tim duncan is more money to spread around to a solid supporting cast to stay competitive in the playoffs. So yes, contracts do have an effect on a team’s spending power.
