NBA Free Agency: Kent Bazemore Would ‘Love To Return’ To Lakers

After being acquired in a mid-season trade, Kent Bazemore shined in an expanded role for the Los Angeles Lakers last season. Unable to see court time as a member of the Golden State Warriors, Bazemore proved that he can play in the NBA.

Now an unrestricted free agent, Bazemore has drawn interest from a number of teams, and has already met with the Atlanta Hawks. Despite the interest, Bazemore still would like to return to Los Angeles, as he said in an interview with Basketball Insiders’ Alex Kennedy:

With Kobe [Bryant] coming back, one of the greatest players to ever touch the ball, I could learn a lot from him. That’d be great [...] I’d love to return to that franchise, but we’ll see how things shake out.

Bazemore has spent the entirety of his short career in California and would like a return. But with the Lakers in limbo while waiting on the decisions of Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James, Bazemore understands he will have to wait.

In addition to his meeting with the Hawks, and interest in a Lakers return, Bazemore also has meetings scheduled with the San Antonio Spurs, Boston Celtics, and Charlotte Hornets. One of the deciding factors for Bazemore will be minutes available via Kennedy:

I only played 23 games down there with heavy minutes for the Lakers; I only averaged like six minutes with the Warriors. My [sample] size is very small. I just need a chance to prove myself again, so minutes are definitely the first thing I’m after. Everything else is just basketball.

Bazemore can provide a lot to a team, not only on the court, but off the court as well. Wherever he decides to go will have a great young contributor on their hands.

    He is an athletic defender who can score. I have no idea why the Lakers haven’t locked him up yet. We will end up losing him just like we lost Farmar. He should have been one of the 1st bench players resigned. We can’t keep losing young, valuable pieces just because we are waiting on Melo to make a decision.

    • Jim213

      Agree, he can play the 2 or 3. No point in waiting for other decisions given Meeks and Farmar have moved on. Bazemore can even start certain games while helping the team at the 3 or 2 depending on who’s on and off the floor.

      • Zimmeredge

        With Kobe just coming back he could get 18-25minutes per game.
        We should offer him the biannual exception. Then we cut the Mle in two for young and Hill add Kelly and Marshall to that group there you have a great, coherent bench mob.
        Marshall bazemore young Kelly Hill
        Marshall fo has high hopes about him. I feel they can imagine him as our own steve Nash incoming

        • Badazztj12

          When he gets into his grove. His max min might be 30 min

        • VillainKing

          Hill, Kelly and Bazemore are good all I can say is “YES” but Marshall “NO”!!

          • Chrmngblly

            Do you know anything at all about basketball, VanillaKling?

          • VillainKing

            Yeah I know and I play it..Your the one that knows nothing about basketball Chrmngay!!!!!

          • Chrmngblly

            You are a liar. Otherwise, you could talk it and think it. All you do is blurt out things. You never have any reasons for the things you say.

          • VillainKing

            My reasons Lakers needs DEFENSE right now and Marshall cant provide that defense!!especially at point guard position understand Chrmngay!!!

          • Tune

            Except we’re talking about the bench. I don’t know how much you understand when it comes to the NBA, but most backup players aren’t great defenders. Even most starters aren’t good defenders.

          • TheZuluNation

            Good point.

          • VillainKing

            YEah but defense is the most important thing in winning a game..

          • A Fan

            Well, Kendall Marshall is young (only 22 or 23 years old) and he’s on a cheap, un-guaranteed contract. Might as well accept the fact that FO isn’t trading him and he’s here to stay

          • DKWTTY

            Who cares if he’s young? There are young people everywhere that doesn’t change the fact that he’s a terrible player. He’s young but moves like molasses, can’t shoot and can’t defend. That’s not good. He’s basically useless.

          • Chrmngblly

            Look at the numbers. Marshall has better numbers than you might think, to watch him play. Good enough that Mitch is bringing him back, anyway. Look at his numbers and you can see why, with the shooters we have, that’s the kind of pg we need.

            It would be better if he played better defense and shot better, but he will do for now. That’s all I can figure.
            Maybe Clarkson or Kane will take his spot. Pg is the least of our worries right now.

          • VillainKing

            Look at him when he plays in the court so fuck up no heart and no effort at all..I think he only wants to play not thinking of winning the game..

          • Chrmngblly

            You are a pussy. You think you can tell everything just by the roar of the crowd. You are not an intelligent basketball player if you really play ball anyplace beside your driveway. Geez.

          • VillainKing

            Your the one that a bitch pussy Chrmngay..and also your very DUMB and you don’t know how to play basketball because you only want to play are the dicks and the balls of your boyfriends..heheheh..Chrmngay your so GAY!!!heheheh..

          • Chrmngblly

            You are a pussy, alright.

          • VillainKing

            Your the one having a fake pussy Chrmngay stop your ambition to become a pure woman you are a GAY forever..

          • DKWTTY

            I really don’t understand the Marshall fan-club. The only thing decent about his stats are his assists and this was in a D’Antoni system were they put up 120 points and got blown out by the other team by 20 and 40 points. I really don’t think Mitch cares or thinks about him. He’s just there because his salary isn’t taking up too much. We don’t need a PG who is slow footed, gets his shot shoved back down his throat and can’t stop opposing PG’s. I’d rather someone who can get 6 assists, put up 18 points and actually play some defense. He’s also clueless half the time he’s on the floor.

          • Chrmngblly

            Clueless? I don’t understand the ingratitude of the clueless. He flew in and basically took over the team straight from the airport–remember? No camp, no practice. First game he shot 21 pts,and 9 assists. Give him a break. He wasn’t even here half a year. We are going to find out if he is coachable, as soon as we get a coach…:-)

            The dude performed when we had no one else and still shot 37% from 3. That’s respectable. I don’t know if he can do all we need for him to do, but he earned my respect and patience. He’s so young. Lighten up.

            I don’t know how he does what he does but he passes better than anybody but Nash. That’s not nothing. A guy like that will make good friends with Kobe and Melo and LBJ if he comes.

            Be fair.

          • DKWTTY

            Oh it’s like that!

            No I remember his first game was a disaster, a disappointment and totally embarrassing. That game you are referring to is his first start as Laker. His first game he scored 3 points and had 4 turnovers…oh and +/- of -1. I have nothing against him I just don’t think he’s a talented basketball player. Yeah okay we’ll see what he brings next season then.

          • Chrmngblly

            Oh I agree. To look at him I would never think he was much of a BB player. But I also know there are different kinds of athletes. Some guys do what you wouldn’t think they could just on heart. That’s hard for the eyes to see. Some athletes learn differently, and take longer, but learn better. There’s different kinds of smarts in this world.

          • kookiebuger

            It’s like I said his stats are inflated from a lack of depth at the PG position plus playing on an awful Lakers team.

          • Chrmngblly

            Think about it. If the Lakers were trash, and they were, wouldn’t that put even more pressure on him and drag his numbers down?

            Regardless, let’s hold our breath and see. There is a reason Mitch hangs on to him.

          • kookiebuger

            Not really that would mean low expectations from management, coaching staff, and fans, he didn’t get a chance until Nash,Blake,Farmar,Kobe,and Henry were all hurt. Marshall’s stats are inflated and he might be a product of Mike’s system just Jeremy Lin.

          • Chrmngblly

            He wasn’t even a Laker until all those guys got hurt. I think you are very ungrateful and unappreciative of what he actually did last year.

            If you are right, he won’t be around long enough to be any kind of problem. He earned a summer and a full camp and a chance in my eyes.

          • VillainKing

            But when Kane and Clarkson will play for the Lakers, Marshall will be replace..heheheh

          • Chrmngblly

            Fine. You get to blurt stuff out of your ass, but the truth is we will see in real life. So you saying goofy stuff makes zero difference to anybody about anything.

          • VillainKing

            Your the one had a blurt stuff out in your ass Chrmngay..but in the real life your nothing but a disgrace in your family Chrmngay!!!You are BITCH Chrmngay..

          • Tune

            Actually he can shoot well and is mostly a pass first PG, which will resonate perfectly off the bench with Young, Bazemore, and Hill.

          • Chrmngblly

            He’s not useless. You and me are useless. Why is he there and not Farmar? Because there’s a million guys like Farmar. Marshall does something different and Mitch wants to hang with him for a while. So do I. I am sorry you can’t see why. Why don’t you spend a few minutes thinking about that? Enlarge your view of the game.

          • VillainKing

            Your correct he is young but no improvement very lazy in defense..Lets give a chance for the Lakers new PG’s Kane and Clarkon..

          • kookiebuger

            Kane is just signed to the summer league, the Lakers current PG situation is Nash,Marshall, and Clarkson.

          • VillainKing

            I hope he will step-up and show the Lakers that he is better than Marshall..In terms of potential to become a good PG Kane had the upper hand againts Marshall..

          • A Fan

            Marshall’s a great playmaker and a decent shooter, and again, young and I disagree that he won’t improve. Pairing him with a defensive or energetic guard (like Bazemore) could hopefully hide his weakness.

            I’m still intrigued to see what Clarkson and Kane could bring to the table but for now, gotta be optimistic with the few players we have.

          • VillainKing

            So you are saying that Marshall is very useless in defense that why Lakers don’t need him!!!!

          • kookiebuger

            Marshall’s stats are inflated, he can’t play defense, his jumpshot is slow and inconsistent, and he is slow. His play making ability and his cheap contract is the only reason why he is still a Laker.

          • A Fan

            And he’s only 22 and can at least still develop his shooting. Like him or hate him, he’s here to stay. not that I like him, but I can’t imagine FO trading him so again, gotta be optimistic with the few players that we have.

          • VillainKing

            why Marshall is so very lazy on defense.?Defense is one of the key in winning but he is not showing effort on that doing that..FUCK KENDALL MARSHALL!!!!!!!!!

          • A Fan

            or you can pair him with a defensive guard and just have him mark the less effective offensive player, like a spot-up shooter while the defensive guard marks the penetrating guard? sheesh, it’s all about gameplanning dude. again, he’s here to stay, and whether or not the new coach includes him in the rotation remains to be seen. So once again, be positive with the few players we have because it doesn’t look like they’re going anywhere

          • VillainKing

            all the five players in the court must know how to play offense and defense..they need the back of each other..what if Bazemore will be screen by a bigman and Marshall is the only defender left..He will give-up and make the opponent score because of his lack of defensive skills..Lakers don’t need Marshall!!!

          • A Fan

            I don’t know, the big man will be the one to help while Marshall has to stay in bay with his man, especially if it’s a shooter? But you know what, there’s no point in trying to even convince you anymore.

            So I’ll say it again and I’ll say it to you for the last time:

            Like it or not, MARSHALL IS HERE TO STAY AND I CAN’T IMAGINE FO GETTING RID OF HIM BECAUSE HE’S YOUNG AND ON A CHEAP CONTRACT. He can get buried in the bench or be a rotation player, whatever. If the new coach ever decides to make you puke by going with the latter then, if you’re really a Laker fan, just hope for the best

          • VillainKing

            I hope for the best for the Lakers and that is getting rid of Marshall first..He will not stay for the Lakers our new point guards will make a noise Kane and Clarkson!!

          • Tune

            Honestly, what is wrong with you? You just blurt out non-sense like a 5 year old throwing a temper a tantrum. People on here at least have reasonable debates, you’re just acting like something you’d find in YouTube comments.

          • VillainKing

            honestly BIG BIG FUCK YOU ONLY FOR YOU Tune!!!YOU wanna enter our conversation OK bring it on!!!FUCK YOU BITCH!!!!!!!!!

          • Chrmngblly

            Yeah…I agree with taking a look at the new guys, but it is unfair to expect any defensive improvement from him while MDA was coach. He changed his game quite a bit from when he first came aboard, if you were paying attention.

          • VillainKing

            Nothing chance on him he can only pass the ball that is all he got..Westbrook, Paul, Lillard, Parker or even Robinson will eat him alive playing defense on them..

          • Chrmngblly

            Why don’t you just hide and watch? Mitch has done OK without your advice so far. You wore us all out over your constant Marcus Smart predictions—and It turned out exactly like I said: Both Smart and Gordon were gone by the time the Lakers got to choose. Just chill.

          • VillainKing

            My prediction is so close but your Gordon and Embiid is so FUCK up very far away..and I remember that you always keep saying to me that the Lakers will draft Gordon or Embiid..but it also never happens..heheheh..Just chill Chrmngay!!

          • Chrmngblly

            They did draft Gordon and Embid 2 whole slots before Smart. Everyone knew Smart had a bad attitude–like you.

          • VillainKing

            hahaahh…are you angry that my predictions is so close than yours Chrmngay.?YOUR AN IDIOT CHRMNGAY!!!!

          • Tune

            You do realize Kmarsh wouldn’t be our first choice at PG?

          • VillainKing

            NO he is not a good PG for the LAkers that is why I want him to be replace..and men FUCK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Tune

            Honestly, how old are you?

          • VillainKing

            Ok greetings for you Tune FUCK YOU VERY MUCH TUNE!!!!!!!!!I’m not obligate to answer your question BITCH!!!

          • Chrmngblly

            Who wants to see VanillaKling banned?

          • VillainKing

            No one can ban me Chrmngay!!I already told you before..understand Chrmngay!!!FUCK YOU CHRMNGAY!!!!!!

          • Chrmngblly

            We will see.

          • VillainKing

            Sorry Chrmngay but this site is like a HELL for you..and always remember this “NO ONE CAN BAN ME”..heheheh..FUCK YOU Chrmngay!!!

          • Chrmngblly

            We will see.

          • VillainKing

            OK..heheheh

        • nlruizjr

          towards the end of the season Marshall was not as effective as he was in the beginning after he came in and the reason for that is because, 1st he was an unknown and therefore not receiving alot of pressure, 2nd after they realized he was slow and not a threat to drive and score, more pressure was placed on him, thus making him either not as effective passing the ball or creating a turnovers. It would seem to me that the FO would not base their decision on Marshall on his first year, when he did start to fade out at the end of the season and noway should’ve been placed higher than Farmar and now with this waiting game that Mitch is playing and also losing good role players when he does not know if Melo or James will come to L.A., that just seems like a really poor strategy as far as cementing your role players.!!!!!!

      • http://www.haveslot.com/ richard

        I think Bazemore can be better used as a 1 and 2, rather than a 2 and 3… if Melo chooses to stay in NY, then we should really go after Deng or Ariza, and add Caron Butler to strengthen bench. Release Nash and sign Isaiah Thomas and Lance.

        If no Melo, we still have a very competitive lineup:
        PG – Thomas/Bazemore/Clarkson/MArshall
        SG – Kobe/Lance/Bazemore
        SF – Deng/Lance/Butler
        PF – Randle/Butler/Kelly
        C – Pau/Sacre/Hill

        First 8minutes of 1Q … Thomas/Kobe/Deng/Randle/Pau
        8min- 2min 2Q = Bazemore/Lance/Deng/Butler/Sacre
        2 min2Q to 6min- = Clarkson/Bazemore/Lance/Hill/Sacre

        TO finish the Quarter: Lance/Kobe/Deng/Butler/Pau

        Kobe and Pay plays 14 minutes first half and 16 minutes second half

        • Guest

          Lol if we’re going to pay Lance big money then we’re going to need him starting and not coming off the bench.. And I’d rather get Nick Young and X over Caron

          • http://www.haveslot.com/ richard

            I disagree with you on 2 points…
            1. Lance must come off the bench to balance the team, but has to finish the game along with the starter, just like Ginobili and Odom… he will still command starter minutes.
            2. Butler is way better player than X and Young. He can play the 3 and 4, and also is a better defender of the three. Kobe wouldn’t recruit him if that isn’t so.

    • LakersHeatBeef

      Eric Pincus ‏@EricPincus 7m
      If Lakers do get Melo – and Pau – speculatively I could see Steve Blake and Caron Butler back with team – I hear Kobe recruiting both

      I think Kobe should recruit his friends yes but us fans should recruit Kent Bazemore all now holla with me WE WANT BAZEMORE!!!!!!!!!!!

      • roseducanna

        No BUTLER.

      • A Fan

        Caron fckin Butler? Did you not see how horrible that guy was in the playoffs? I’d rather bring back Xavier Henry or even Wesley Johnson, at least those guys are younger and athletic

        • GoLakers2014

          U mean X Henry and Wes Johnson? Did you even see them play in a playoffs game? Id rather have Caron who atleast played in the playoffs rather than those two.

          • A Fan

            So? It’s not like the Lakers are a team full of inexperienced players. I’d like my bench mob to be mostly young and athletic. They want instant offense? Re-sign Nick Young. They want experience off the bench? That’s what Steve Nash or Steve Blake (if signed) will bring.

        • Tune

          You mean under the coach Scott Brooks barely polaying? why yes, I did. He barely got minutes, should’ve been in game 6 in the end of the 4th quarter/overtime while Brooks stuck to small ball like his life depended on it, essentially handing over the series to the Spurs with the Spurs playing the mismatch on Fisher. Brooks is a pretty bad coach and I wouldn’t call Butler a bad player due to it. Their offense is literally KD and WB fighting for the ball for iso.

    • Scott

      The numbers in Las Vegas are moving way up in The Lakers favor people are betting on The Lakers to win the conference and championship and Las Vegas betting venues moved the odds in half for The Lakers in recent days.Someone in Vegas must know like LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony are coming to The Lakers or how else can they explain this huge jump in the Lakers favor so fast.Vegas always has the inside scoop.

    • Sam

      Kobe+LeBron+Carmelo The Three Amigos.They will sign with the Lakers.

  • meep

    sign him up!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://www.sportsblog.com/profile/Wytols Wytols

    Well then sign him…a great player of the bench who wants to prove himself.

  • meep

    if they dont get melo why not bring back young and bazemore. you got your offense and defense right there

    • Zimmeredge

      Bazemore and young are part of the plan as well, Hill too. we will use bi annual, Mle and every single exceptions that we have over the cap.

      • meep

        it just getting annoying waiting for melo. but i wonder what plan they told him. since lakers only have like 5 players

        • Zimmeredge

          Biannual for bazemore
          Hill and young will hs are the Mle
          Then vet contract
          And you have good bench with melo in or melo out.

  • Badazztj12

    Great news would love to have him back

  • Thomas Klein

    The Lakers should give Melo until Tuesday mid day to decide, and if no decision, move to plan “B” sign Isiah Thomas, Lance Stevenson, or Trevor Ariza, and then resign Gasol, Ryan Kelly, Bazemore, Nick Young, and Randle and Clarkson.
    They should also sign Jermaine O’Neal to a vets minimum 1 year deal.
    Keep Nash and use his salary cap money to sign Kevin Love next year.

    • meep

      if you want older vets why not Okafor who a little bit healthier

      • DKWTTY

        Okafor is a little bit healthier? Has anyone even seen him lately? Didn’t he just miss an entire season due to injury?

        • Badazztj12

          yup neck injury

        • Chrmngblly

          Hey. It is true that I have been the object of female desire for many years. This has not led me to view womanhood in any sort of negative light. Far from it. I love to “loose the tiger” in my women—and they love having their way with me. For you to call me misogynistic is just wrong and untrue.

          Why do you say such things? Is there some desire building up inside you that you are trying to hide? Is this how you go about concealing it—by lashing out at me like this?

          These are valid questions. How was your day?

      • Chrmngblly

        I guess we could get Kareem to suit up, too, if we are going for age.

    • roseducanna

      No Jermaine O’Neal.

    • independentbynature

      They will grovel at his feet until it’s over.

  • Al Haldie

    Mitch; Start getting our team togeather -MELO should of had enough time to make up his mind….

    • Zimmeredge

      Yeah he could use the exception on certain players now.

  • meep

    while not breaking the bank if no melo this would be a decent team
    pg thomas,clarkson
    sg kobe ,Henry or someone else
    sf bazemore ,young
    pf randle kelly
    center hill sacre.
    while it wont be much of a different team from last season i still see the lakers improving in much needed areas

  • Tyrone

    Carmelo Anthony is coming to the Lakers okay i heard that like 1000000000000 times just today lol alright so we gotta keep Kent Bazemore he is the only player other than Kobe and Pau that i want back from last season.

  • wangkon936

    How many quality FAs will we let slip through our fingers before Melo makes a freaking decision!!!

  • DKWTTY

    You know who else said they’d love to return? Jodie Meeks and Jordan Farmar. Don’t talk about it, be about it. I’ll believe it when I see it.

    • meep

      meeks took the pay day and ran with it and farmar i bet couldnt wait for the lakers.

        Meeks I can understand but Farmar is a traitor.

        • meep

          well he got to stay in la and who knows maybe the lakers would of never gave him a contract the clips did

          • DKWTTY

            $2 million? He already made a little over $1 million and the Lakers paid to bring him back to the NBA so I think they would have. Steve Blake, a man who loved LA and playing for the Lakers was upset he had to move away from his family to make room for Farmar and then he leaves for the enemy?

          • Chrmngblly

            They are going younger and cheaper. The Lakers don’t need some gunner point guard if they get Melo/LBJ. Or Stephenson.

        • Chrmngblly

          Into each life a little rain must fall. I know letting Farmar go must feel like a slap in the face to you, as a woman. Did he hurt you badly? Is there a child involved?….:-)

          • DKWTTY

            LOL! What is your obsession with me being a woman? Are you jealous of my ovaries or something?

            It doesn’t feel like a slap in the face but again, no, he isn’t my type..

          • Chrmngblly

            Right. And I know you are saving yourself for marriage, too…:-)
            I am just throwing you softballs, luv.

          • VillainKing

            Its like a punch of your boyfriend Chrmngay because you are a GAY…BITCH!!!!!!!You want to become a pure woman Chrmngay??no you will be GAY forever..hehehheh!!

          • DKWTTY

            LMAO at chrmngay.

          • independentbynature

            Good to see you haven’t lost your charming way with words.LOL.

          • Chrmngblly

            How are you? I was just throwing a few softballs for fun. I will be glad when some of these decisions get made and we see what we have.

          • independentbynature

            I’m doing good.Good to see another crabby old guy on here with me.I’m just waiting for Melo to reject us,like everyone else.I’m getting a little worried about our non-existent roster.We’re still the only team without a coach.I’ll be glad when all this groveling for Melo is over.

          • Chrmngblly

            Ha. Touché’. Me, too. I am already sick of it, but I never dreamed Mitch would try for this big a grab. If everyone signs, I have no idea who they will get to coach. Phil? LOL

          • independentbynature

            Byron’s the only one left now.He wants the Lakers job so bad,he’s waiting.The FO thinks that they can entice Melo and LeBron by letting them pick our coach.I just call that shameless begging.It doesn’t exactly inspire confidence in their ability to do their job

          • Chrmngblly

            I don’t know if it is a good plan but I think they think coaches will come out of the woodwork to coach such a team as they imagine assembling. Maybe. And they have good ole Byron in reserve, as a backup plan.

          • independentbynature

            Sorry,I’ve been busy replying to Farmar’s jilted girlfriend.And she thought YOU were sexist.LOL.She really doesn’t know how to deal with us crabby old guys.Oh,yeah.Byron will wait for them.But,it’s embarrassing to act so desperate.You know?

          • DKWTTY

            Oh explains a lot. You two are gay lovers and in cahoots with one another. Explains everything. Don’t let me get in the way of this sausage-fest. I wasn’t pressing up on your man.

          • independentbynature

            Oh no.I’m so worried about my sexuality now.LOL.Strike three.You’re out.You can’t rattle me,little girl.

          • DKWTTY

            No, no, please I insist! Do not let me get in the way old man, he’s all yours! My bad.

          • independentbynature

            I’ll bet you call every guy who rejects you gay.Must keep you busy.Whatever it takes to make you feel better about yourself,honey.

          • DKWTTY

            I’m a lady, I do not approach any man and surely do not get rejected. Calling someone gay for rejecting you is a male trait. Please don’t get it twisted grandpa.

            I do admire your dedication to learning how to use a computer though. Did your boytoy teach you?

          • independentbynature

            I work with computers for a living,honey.Computer science was my major.Judging from the maturity level you exhibit,maybe I could be your “grandpa.”You act about 14.And you are no lady by any definition of the word.My ex always had to get in the last word,too.

          • DKWTTY

            You’re a very cranky old man, didn’t get a nap today? If I act 14 than you act 10. You replied to me not the other way around, again stop playing the victim card. I am not your ex-get over her she left you. I can see why. You have feminine traits and want the last word yourself. Stop replying-simple.

          • independentbynature

            You’re really hurting my feelings…Yawn.

          • DKWTTY

            The nursing home must have not gave out jello today, huh?

          • independentbynature

            I like jello…..

          • Chrmngblly

            I fear the word is out on the Lakers and they may end up stuck in the gutter.
            And I AM sexist. I admit it. I love Ladies for being Women—when they like it, too. Otherwise, be whatever you want.
            Who thinks I am sexist? DKwhatever? Shame on her.

          • independentbynature

            I don’t think she’s a woman and definitely not a lady.Little girls get intimidated by old guys they can’t lead around by the you know what.I think she uses the terms misogynistic and neanderthal.Too funny.She’s confusing this site with the Jerry Springer show.

          • DKWTTY

            You’re right. I’m totally lying about my gender. That’s really logical. I’d rather be a little girl than an impotent, destitute old man in the sunset of his life. What was it like walking to school barefoot? Or did you take a horse & carriage? I think you two and your gay circus act are confusing this with the Jerry Springer Show. Take your carnival over there.

          • independentbynature

            This must be some of that “respectful”behavior you were talking about.LOL.You really are having a meltdown.

          • DKWTTY

            Ask your boyfriend chrmgay or whatever his name is, that’s just how I reply to imbeciles. I have to speak to you on your level. I have to give it to you men you are experts at this playing the victim stuff. You would have swore I was the one who replied to you calling YOU a little boy and emotional but nope it was you who did that. I really don’t understand how me throwing shots that you took first is me having a meltdown. Male logic is flawed-unsurprisingly of course.

          • independentbynature

            You really must like me to keep replying.I know some women act like that sometimes.I really do like strong women,but you’re too rude and too bossy for my taste.I prefer an equal.You’re too domineering.Even though you are very insecure behind the mask.You might even be beautiful on the outside.But you need make up on the inside.

          • DKWTTY

            Your delusions of how men and women act is truly bizarre. Maybe you’re a shut in. So you reply to me first, attack me first, but I’m the one who likes you? Nope that’s what men do. You are one weird old man. For your taste? You act like you have a shot with me or that I’m interested in you. I don’t like old men. You don’t prefer an equal, you prefer a woman who doesn’t reply back and have her own brain. You must be having flashbacks to the 50s but it’s 2014 out here gramps. Understand the depths of the 2014 woman. LOL thanks anonymous geriatric online-I shall really heed your advice and put some makeup on the inside for DARING to have an opinion. I’m really just a nasty evil jezebel. How dare I? You need a lot more than makeup on the outside and inside. You are a disgusting excuse for a human being.

          • independentbynature

            Depths? LOL.You’re as shallow as a rain puddle,girl.I told you,I’m not interested.You really should stay on your meds,though.You might hurt yourself in your fragile state of mind.

          • PlayerHaters

            GODDAMN this shit still continues?? Lol
            oh hold up let me get the popcorn first!

          • independentbynature

            I think she really likes me….LOL.

          • independentbynature

            Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.Farmar done her wrong and now I did,too.

          • DKWTTY

            And you would be out of your depth in a parking lot puddle grandpop. I guess the nurse didn’t bring your meds around today? Poor thing is senile, probably thinks the Lakers are still winning titles with Magic. Women don’t hurt people IF they are in a “fragile state of mind”-men do-I told you that.

          • independentbynature

            You seem like the Jody Arias type to me.You have the three D’s.Delusional,deranged and dangerous.You have a very limited mental capacity,too.I hope you get help soon.

          • DKWTTY

            You know you keep saying stuff like that but never proving how or why. What did I do? I keep proving you are the disrespectful one but you keep deflecting and not addressing it. That was a new low for you to compare a complete stranger arguing over…basketball…to a psychotic murderer and you wonder why you’re alone? Are you always this emotional and dramatic during sports talks or is today a special occasion? You have a mouth that won’t quit and a brain that won’t start.

          • independentbynature

            Your comments speak for themselves.You are an obsessive lunatic.The more you comment,the more you confirm it.You need help.I’m sure you have a therapist.Call and make an appointment now.Before it’s too late.Oh,I’m not alone,either.But,I’m sure you are.Maybe you should get out more.And I thought “only men hurt people.”You’re psycho,girl.

          • DKWTTY

            You sound like Oscar Pistorius-obsessive, delusional, paranoid, jealous, narcissistic, lunatic, dangerous. What’s funny is you’re doing the same thing I’m doing so what does that say about YOU?? See your narcissism doesn’t allow you to realize that. Why would I need a therapist when I have you? My e-counselor? Do you make a habit of diagnosing people online? LMAO!! You are a jack of all trades and all knowing, huh?. You must think you’re God too, huh? Delusions of grandeur-you are the typical nutcase.

            You found one of the rare cases of a woman hurting someone and are proud of yourself when I can name hundreds of thousands of men? Pathetic. Your hate for women is bizarre. Your ex really broke your heart didn’t she? Don’t take it out on all of us.

          • independentbynature

            One of your delusional symptoms is to project your own motives and behavior onto others.It makes you feel better about yourself to think that others are just like you.I don’t hate women at all.My best friends are women.You are the hater.Your comments confirm that.You even admit it.Take your meds,get some rest and then go back and read your hateful delusional ramblings.Maybe you’ll have an epiphany.Then you can start over and try to act a like a rational human being.Change your name and no one will know it was you.I’m really starting to feel sorry for you.I don’t want to be mean,even though you’ve brought it on yourself.Get some help with your emotional problems.

          • VillainKing

            Nice one..:-) I hope Chrmngay die as soon as possible!!heheheh

          • Chrmngblly

            Are you talking about DKWTTY? She says she’s a lesbian. I don’t care. I know she can out-cuss me…:-)
            I like her.

          • independentbynature

            Yeah,she’s even ruder than you are…LOL. I think she’s really just looking for love…..In all the wrong places.

          • Chrmngblly

            Don’t you think you were a little hard on the Beaver last night? Nobody’s that rude….:-)

          • independentbynature

            She’s insulting,arrogant and a man hater.I trust you read all her insane commentary?I warned her from the beginning that she was out of her league.She can dish it out,but she can’t take it.She had some nice things to say about you,too.That being said,I feel sorry for her and I am feeling a little guilty,even though she asked for it.The internet is not the place to go around insulting people if you can’t take it back.She does have some emotional issues and I don’t really want to push her over the edge,though.I’m done with it.

          • Chrmngblly

            Well, don’t piss her off….LOL

            Face it though, nature, Nobody’s as nice and well-balanced as we are…:-)

          • independentbynature

            You know,I was civil to her.Then she started with the insults.”Misogenistic pig,”knuckle dragging trogladyte,”and the like.She called herself a man hater.I never cursed at her like she did me.I really don’t like using foul language.She started with the gay slurs and various sexual and age taunts and lots of others that I never returned in kind.I never sank to her level.I just pointed out her emotional and irrational behavior.In the end,she just couldn’t handle the truth.I feel bad because I probably made her cry.Maybe it will do her some good and she’ll be a little nicer to people from now on.She certainly had a meltdown.I’m respectful of people I disagree with until they get personal.Then,the gloves are off.That’s just the way us crabby old guys are.You know how people get on the web.It’s anonymous and they get cyber courage they would never have face to face. Courtesy is none too common.It’s not like our day when people were respectful unless they were looking for a scrap.I miss the good ole days.

          • Chrmngblly

            She probably has the hots for you…:-)
            She can be calmed down. I like her. The guy that never quits being a cussing, swearing, spoiled, retarded child is VanillaKling. I keep trying to talk him back from the ledge, but…

          • independentbynature

            I told her that she must like me to keep replying and she really got mad.Me thinks she doth protest too much.Women love Shakespeare.

          • VillainKing

            Hahahahah..What the fuck are you talking Chrmngay did your boyfriends brutally gangbang you again??that is why you are not in your own self today Chrmngay??..heheheh

          • Chrmngblly

            I am tired of you acting like a retard, VanillaKling. You are no fun and you are not very knowledgeable or thoughtful. So many others on here are.

          • VillainKing

            You are the one that no fun at all Chrmngay..why don’t you tell me that I’m going to be ban again..That will never happen Chrmngay!!

          • independentbynature

            And what’s up with you and VillainKing?He just posted that he hopes you die as soon as possible.hehehe…..See what I mean about that cyber courage?

          • Chrmngblly

            I don’t know. I think he wants my manhood…:-) I have tried to make piece with him but he just blurts out some statement and then cusses the other person out. I don’t know what to think. Very low cerebral capacity.

          • VillainKing

            Really your manhood is gone because you change it to a fake vagina.:-)heheheh..I’m the one that thinks you only want and really like my extra large Manhood Chrmngay!!

          • independentbynature

            Someone should clue VK in.Real men don’t “heheheh.”Especially if they are claiming to be “Bad” in their profile.

          • Chrmngblly

            Really. Who does that?

        • PlayerHaters

          Lakers only signed him for ONE season. How exactly is he a “traitor”???

          • DKWTTY

            After all they did to get him back in the NBA and he goes and plays for the Lakers well known rivals.

          • PlayerHaters

            Thats because with Kendall Marshall, Jordan Clarkson, Deandre Kane and possibly another signed guard where was Jordan Farmar gonna fit?? And what does them bringing him back to the NBA have to do with anything?? im pretty sure he appreciates the organization for giving him a second opportunity to continue his career in this league but the Lakers DID not bring him back to keep him long term. They just needed to fill out their roster last season

          • DKWTTY

            Who said those guys are even going to play for the team? No decisions have even been made yet and he just panicked and jumped ship. You think NO TEAM would have signed Farmar if the Lakers didn’t pick him? He’s a decent backup PG with a great 3 point shot. They even called to inquire about him coming back. He just feels like he’s too good to wait around until after Melo gives his decision. He was talking about the Lakers have no coach and no players as if he’s Lebron out here just wading in the water. He’s a C or D list player. He could have waited.

            What does it have to do with anything? It shows loyalty and care about him to buyout his deal to bring him back HOME and back to the NBA where he wanted to be. You think they wasted all that time and money just to fill a spot? You mean they couldn’t have found someone in the d-league or other players ALREADY in the States to fill a roster spot like they did with Marshall? Don’t be silly.

          • PlayerHaters

            umm you “don’t be silly” he was obviously a good choice to pick up because he WAS ON THE CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM back in 09-10 and he would have been a good leader for the bench.
            “couldn’t have found someone in the d-league or other players” no gm is stupid enough to just make that type of move on a whim smh AND THEY DID sign a temporary D-Leaguer remember Manny Harris??? They did like for him to come back but they’re not his friends, you’re not his friend, im not his friend. This shit is strictly business cmon cuh
            He said he doesnt want to be a 3rd string, who does? Loyalty and care? thats debateable. They could have at least gave him a 2 year contract if they wanted him long term

          • DKWTTY

            That is ABSURD. That Lakers team Mitch put together last season was a complete joke and you think he didn’t know that? You think he cared about a “leader for the bench” with those rejected scrubs he scraped together to have a team? Mitch is smarter than that.

            No GM would do that on whim? Did they not do that with Kendall Marshall? You mean to tell me Jordan Farmar was the ONLY CHOICE for a PG for them? That’s hilarious. I know it’s business but his reasoning was stupid and impulsive for someone who was taken care of by the Lakers and for someone who claimed over and over how much he loved playing for them. AGAIN who said he would be 3rd string for the Lakers? He’s a disloyal low level peasant.

          • PlayerHaters

            umm you’re absurd. With Nash and Kobe out, Pau was gonna lead the starting lineup. They at least needed someone to lead the bench. What makes you think Mitch didnt care about that?? So you wanted the team to lose EVERY single game?? Farmar was attainable and they took the opportunity. So you’re telling me that Mitch just signed Farmar on a whim and NOT because he was a veteran who contributed on a championship team back in 09-10 and could possibly lead the bench??? Kendall Marshall isnt just “any player” he was a former lottery pick and he didnt turn out to be too bad. You’re argument was that the Lakers could have easily picked any D-Leaguer or any other player but you dont understand that its not that easy to pick up any player who can compete at the NBA level smh. Like i said remember Manny Harris?? Remember what he was doing in the D-League? Farmar is replaceable so stop crying over him

          • DKWTTY

            I’m not. It’s not about wanting to lose every single game! He knew that team COULD NOT and WOULD NOT be competing so why would he care about getting a leader for the bench that consisted of scrubs? To attain Farmar they had to go out of their way-this is what you aren’t understanding. He was not the last PG on earth at the time, they definitely could have got other veterans to “lead” the D-league all stars. What are you even talking about? Getting a free agent or a PG from the d-league is doing something on a whim? That doesn’t even make sense. I didn’t say he got Farmar on a whim. They needed another PG and Farmar is family, he contacted them because he wanted back in the league and THEY went out of their way to get him because they knew what he could bring and he’d be cheap. It wasn’t about being a “leader”. They ALREADY had Steve Nash and Steve Blake so why would they go out of their way to search for a “bench leader”?? Kendall is a scrub and there are A LOT of busts in the NBA so his selection in the draft is totally irrelevant. What is the d-league for then??? The d-league is not the only place they could have got a PG either and I said that. Manny Harris is irrelevant to the discussion as well. I’m not crying over him and let’s see how easy it to replace him come next season.

          • independentbynature

            They got a bargain.They didn’t do Farmar any favors.You’re way off base on this one.

          • DKWTTY

            So did the Clippers, what’s your point? Paying half a million to get him out his miserable situation and back with his family isn’t doing this ingrate any favors? You haven’t stated ONE fact yet but I’m off base? No.

          • independentbynature

            Yes….You are waaaaay off base.I’m the only one of the two of us who’s stated any facts at all.Your gripe is all emotion,no logic.Half a million ?Are you serious?That’s chump change for the billionaire Buss kids.Take a chill pill.

          • DKWTTY

            Where are your facts? It’s not about emotion. It’s not about whether it’s chump change, it’s about the FACT that they did it FOR him. What other team wasted money to bring Farmar back to the NBA? I’ll wait…oh that’s right none of them. It’s not the money, it’s the principle. Steve Blake WANTED to be a Laker he WANTED to stay in LA and they traded him and kept Farmar when he knew all along he wasn’t going to remain with the team. You sound emotional defending him.

          • independentbynature

            They didn’t do anything for him but give him a one year contract,which he fulfilled.You’re all about emotion.Getting defensive about it too.Aren’t we?I’m sure if he’d have known how much you care,he would have left his wife and child and moved in with you.When your employer stops paying you,do you wait for him,or go get another job?You’re being childish.Let me blow your mind one more time,honey.This is a profession.Not a relationship.

          • DKWTTY

            So you’re STILL going to argue that they didn’t bring him over. Okay. You’re only calling me emotional because you found out I’m a woman which says A LOT about you and your neanderthal mentality. You’re now comparing regular jobs to the NBA and ranting on about his wife and fucking kids. Let me blow your mind one more time, go fuck yourself you knuckle dragging troglodyte.

          • independentbynature

            Are you sure you don’t know my ex?

          • DKWTTY

            By the way you post I’m pretty sure you never even had an ex.

          • independentbynature

            Yep,she thought she was psychic,too.

          • DKWTTY

            Now I think I’m psychic? I can see why she left you. Here’s a free little tip I’ll give you, NO WOMAN likes a condescending overbearing man who thinks he’s knows it all and does not value her opinion because she’s a woman. Women especially don’t like when you call them “little girl” and “emotional” when they aren’t. THAT’S what really makes us pissed off. I should probably just go start a war and invade another country since having a vagina makes me so emotionally unbalanced, or shoot up an entire school because I’m sad, or rape someone…oh wait those are all things MEN do.

          • independentbynature

            You have no idea what a woman likes,honey.Unless your mother told you.So,you’re a man hater,too.That explains a lot.I call you a little girl because that’s the way you act.If you don’t like it,don’t play the part.You got one thing right…..I don’t value your opinion.No one but you does.

          • DKWTTY

            You’re a woman hater and I’m a man hater. Perfect. So not wanting to be disrespected makes me a little girl? No wonder you struggle with women. Is that how YOUR mother taught you how to treat people and women in particular? Don’t take your anger out on me, you know how you men get when you’re angry-you might rape someone.

            No one values your opinion either. Again, perfect.

          • independentbynature

            Oh.I’m not angry.Do you always over-estimate the effect you have on men?Don’t let that make you angry.You know how you little girls get.You might falsely accuse someone of rape.The difference is,I don’t care who does or doesn’t value my opinion.My mother taught me to always respect a woman who acts like a lady and not to concern myself with the ones who don’t.I haven’t always followed her wise advice.I guess that explains why I’m talking to you.LOL.

          • DKWTTY

            No I always underestimate the effect I have on men actually. In fact no I don’t really think or care about the gender of the person I’m replying to online, that seems to be an issue you have, not me.

            If I’m not acting like a lady you’re not acting like a gentleman. What did your mother have to say about that? Or are those another set of standards only reserved for women? She was born in the dark ages so most likely believes her place is beneath a man and to keep quiet. I guess that explains you. Did I disrespect you? Call you a little girl and insult you because you are a man? No I didn’t. All I asked is that if you are going to argue with me then do not disrespect me because I am a woman. I guess that’s too much to ask of cave dweller but two can play at that game.

          • independentbynature

            If you think you’ve been respectful and acted like a lady,you really should read your comments again.You’ve been consistently disrespectful.I guess I should add delusional and dishonest to your over-emotional behavior.If a woman acts like a lady,then I treat her like one.If she acts like you………

          • DKWTTY

            I don’t usually make it a habit of respecting those who disrespect me. Do you? That’s fine. I’m not really a woman but I’m a little girl, I’m emotional, I’m stupid, I’m not a lady, I’m delusional, I’m a bitch…did I forget any other sexist stereotypes? I’m everything all at once. Your mother failed you and that’s why your ex left you. You probably drove her crazy too.

          • independentbynature

            No,that just about covers the stereotypes you exhibit.And that’s exactly why I haven’t given you respect.You haven’t earned it.If you expect it just because you’re a woman,then act like a lady and you’ll get it.What comes around,goes around.Sounds more like I’m driving you crazy and it looks like it was a short drive.

          • DKWTTY

            Oh right I didn’t earn respect from independentbynature. Whatever do I do now? So sad. So I have to act like a lady when I’m disrespected by a pig male? Yes that’s very male of you. I’m so sorry for the audacity to have an opinion that differs from yours and *gasp* having vagina too! I’m just an evil little wench. I feel sorry for your ex and clearly she wasn’t crazy if you keep talking about her. You like to put labels on people when you’re the one with the issue.

          • independentbynature

            If the shoe fits………And this is more of how you don’t disrespect men?Issue,what issue….I got no issues.LOL.

          • PlayerHaters

            thats exactly what i said. they gave him a 1 year contract and he fulfilled it, BUT NO shes rambling on about how hes a “traitor”

          • independentbynature

            She’s a lunatic with an attitude.I was just having a little fun with her meltdown.I’m sure she called her therapist this morning.Probably got off her meds.

          • PlayerHaters

            lol hey watch it she just might be that ex of yours that you were talking bout

          • independentbynature

            It’s a scary thought.

          • PlayerHaters

            she is off base isnt she? you can tell if you go back and read her posts that its all emotion

          • independentbynature

            Yeah,she definitely doesn’t understand anything about sports.She’s just a hateful man hater with penis envy.

          • PlayerHaters

            Actually it is easy to replace him and its obvious that you’re just emotional about him leaving smh
            you’re just like any other ridiculous fanboy that wants to resign the whole fuckin roster from last season

          • independentbynature

            Fangirl………Fan as in fanatically emotional and ridiculous.

          • PlayerHaters

            lol yeah thats true
            she doesnt like to be categorized as the “typical emotional girl” but she’s obviously not paying attention to what she’s saying

          • independentbynature

            She rants and raves and thinks it’s a logical debate.She insults everyone who disagrees with her and then cries about not being respected.She’s a man-hating hypocrite with an attitude.But enough about her good points.LOL.

          • DKWTTY

            You sound upset. Actually I don’t want to re-sign the whole fucking roster, that’s retarded. You don’t want Farmar back who is a good backup PG and 3 point shooter? Lakers fans like you are the true ridiculous fanboys. What type of dumbass fan is excited that one of their talented players signed with a rival team who is doing better than us? Enjoy getting beat down by the Clippers for years to come. As a “Lakers fan” that must be a dream come true!

          • PlayerHaters

            How do i sound upset?? just cuz i said “fucking”?? i actually pity you. You get way too emotional, you’re obsessive, and you also don’t have good comprehension skills and thats just the start smh
            NOTHING you just said is correct, not even the part about the Clippers beating down the Lakers “for years to come”
            Would it have been fine to get him back? Yes. But l already told you that hes replaceable. Where did I EVER imply that i was excited to see Farmar leave?? Now you’re just reaching. And if you really are a “Lakers fan” then you would know that he was way more talented back in 09-10. The Clippers LOST on opening night last season. It just goes to show that with the right pieces, Lakers aint gonna be that easy to dethrone in LA. Its obvious you’re lacking knowledge about the sport AND worse, the Lakers.

          • DKWTTY

            Yes you sound angry, emotional and obsessive your damn self! Calm down. I don’t need your fucking PITY. This is a basketball discussion so quit getting your panties in a bunch and being overly dramatic. I’m not emotional or obsessive. Stop the ad hominem attacks and stick to basketball, we are all adults. You call me a emotional fanboy and don’t expect me to reply back the same? Really?

            Okay then who do you replace him with? You haven’t answered that….

            You’re telling me to get over it, making excuses for why he left and deflecting/denying that what he did was traitor like after all the Lakers did for him. How is the part about the Clippers beating us down for years to come not true? Unless they get Melo we will be mediocre for years. Are you one of those delusional “fanboys” who think the Clippers aren’t currently better than us? Add Hawes and FARMAR and now they are even better. Opening night was a fluke. Do you remember when they killed us on national tv? Biggest loss ever to them? Doc is on a mission, you watch and see. He has hate in his heart for us.

            What does him being more talented back then have to do with now? That’s not even true. He’s vastly improved and more mature. It’s obvious you are in denial about our place in the league and worse, LA. We may still have more fans but the Clippers are more talented. Get used to it. Everyone knows it but delusional Lakers fans like you who are stuck in the past.

          • independentbynature

            He took a pay cut to play for Lakers,leaving lots of cash on the table in Turkey.Lakers didn’t commit to him.Our loss.

          • DKWTTY

            He was miserable in Turkey. That’s not the Lakers fault-he took the pay-cut, no one put a gun to his head. Lakers haven’t committed to anyone.

          • independentbynature

            That’s right.Lakers haven’t committed to anyone.If you want a player,offer him a contract.Lakers didn’t.Clips did.Our loss.Hill and Baze are next.

          • DKWTTY

            Clippers aren’t waiting on Carmelo. They have a team together already, we don’t. We can’t do everything the Clippers way. They called his agent to ask about him coming back, the same way they did with those other guys. Many free agents are waiting for why couldn’t he?

          • independentbynature

            He wasn’t the first to leave and he won’t be the last.If the Lakers had let him know they wanted him,I’m sure he would’ve waited.Sports is a business.It’s not personal.I’ll still be a Farmar fan,but not the Clips.He got to stay home.The Clips were his only other option for that and they needed him after Collison left.Makes perfect sense for him.

          • DKWTTY

            Whatever. I’m not repeating myself nor am I am going to keep arguing about Jordan Farmar. You have every right to support him just like I have every right to not support him and think that he’s a traitor. It’s a business right? I don’t care about him or his family the same way he didn’t care about Steve Blake and his family.

          • Badazztj12

            Just saying what have Steve Blake family have to do with it. Why would he care about Blake’s family more than his own?

          • DKWTTY

            Blake was traded to free up roster space since they wanted to see what Marshall and Farmar could do and he was devastated about it. After reading Farmar’s quotes about the Clippers I have every reason to believe he wasn’t returning to the Lakers no matter what. We could have traded his disloyal ass instead.

          • independentbynature

            You’re not making sense.It was the Lakers who didn’t care about Blake’s family.They traded him.Farmar didn’t.

          • DKWTTY

            Woah so you’re telling me Farmar wasn’t the one who traded Blake? Mind blown.

          • independentbynature

            It seems like you didn’t know that.Your mind must be easily blown.

          • DKWTTY

            No, that wasn’t my point, it seems you can’t grasp that.

            At least I have a mind and brain that works. Don’t you have a terribly empty feeling — in your skull?

          • independentbynature

            I never could grasp hormonal imbalanced responses.I’m feeling fine.Thanks for asking.How are you?

          • DKWTTY

            You can grasp a logical debate and the fact that a woman knows more about sports and is out debating you is what you meant to say. Your fragile male ego can’t handle it so you resort to misogynistic ad hominem attacks.

        • independentbynature

          Farmar wanted to stay in LA. Lakers gave him no reason to wait for them.Ask Pau about how loyal our FO is.It’s a business.He did what he had to.I hate to see him with the Clips,though.

          • DKWTTY

            1. We didn’t draft Pau
            2. We didn’t pay out for Pau to come back into the NBA
            3. Pau has never been traded by the Lakers
            4. The Lakers have not signed or re-signed ANYONE yet so what makes him think he’s so special?

          • independentbynature

            He left a big pay day to play for cheap for the Lakers.What makes the Lakers think they’re special?They show no loyalty.Pau has been on the trade block for years now.It’s a business.They play for a living to feed their families.Your indignation is misguided.Lakers never told him wait for us.

          • DKWTTY

            That’s his issue because he wanted to be in the NBA. Who said the Lakers think they’re special? Not locking up Jordan Farmar a mere days into free agency means they think they are special? They show loyalty to those who deserve it. Pau has been on the trade block the same way Kobe threatened to leave-it never happened. How you know what the Lakers told him? lol. It doesn’t even matter if they told him to wait, smart players realize they should way. Like the great poet Chris Brown said, “these HOES AIN’T LOYAL!”

          • independentbynature

            If you think Chris Brown is a poet,that just might be part of your problem.You’re acting like a jilted lover.A woman should know.If you can’t get a commitment,you move on.No need to get overly emotional about it.

          • DKWTTY

            If you can’t detect sarcasm than that’s part of your problem and explains your inability to comprehend what you read. Now you’re a misogynistic pig to top it off-typical. Let me know how much you love Farmar when he’s raining 3′s on us and the Clippers are blowing us out by 40 every night. Your panties must be wet about it already.

          • Badazztj12

            You kind of just disrespected our team there. That shows you don’t have faith we can get this shit together. Why you think Lakers are targeting Lance? That wasn’t a rumor

          • DKWTTY

            Oh please. One day I’m called crazy and overly emotional about our team and the next I disrespected them? Yeah I don’t have faith in them when they are dragging their feet for someone who isn’t likely to join and Lance isn’t going to stop us from sucking for years to come unless Jim and Mitch get their act together.

          • Badazztj12

            But the dude will help us. Not in a major way but will give us a player for the future. We are not contending now but doesn’t mean we can gather pieces together to try to contend

          • independentbynature

            You sound like one of my ex’s.That’s why she’s an ex.She got overly emotional.too.I just moved on with my life.Don’t even bother trying to rattle me little girl.You’re way out of your league.I know who I am and what I’m about.Go waste your time on some of these younger guys.I’m way past those kinda games.

          • DKWTTY

            You sound like a fairy little bitch and that’s probably why your ex is an ex. No woman likes a weak bitchmade little dick man. Now you’re an e-thug. I’m so scared little boy…what you going to do? An e-drive-by? Awww. It’s nice that you care for Farmar so much though. I’m sure he really values the love ‘independentbynature’ has for him.

            You wasted my time so please bore me less. You should follow your boo & hop aboard the Clipper bandwagon.

          • independentbynature

            You whiffed again little girl.No effect whatsoever.I respect the athletes I like.I used to be one.You are the one confusing business with love.It’s your time to waste.Take your best shot.

          • DKWTTY

            Another old guy reminiscing on his glory days and comparing it to NBA athletes.

            I’m not confusing anything. I stated my piece. Jodie Meeks just made BANK by going to another team-more power to him. Farmar is making peanuts again, that’s a bad business move so saying it’s “just business” is ridiculous when he’s not even making big money.

            Don’t act like a victim when you came into MY replies and attacked me solely because I have a vagina. That makes you look like an asshole. Any other misogynistic gems from you?

          • independentbynature

            I thought your comments were immature and idiotic.I didn’t know you were a little girl,not a woman,until later.But,I should have guessed by the emotionally imbalanced nature of your comments.I never act like a victim,because I never am.You just can’t handle an alpha male.

          • DKWTTY

            You didn’t know that but you kept calling me emotional and a little girl. What’s it like in your cave? How are you getting internet access? You are a misogynistic asshole who can’t handle an alpha female no wonder you switched to sausage.

          • independentbynature

            I love women.I’m too old for little girls.And you ARE emotional.And there’s nothing Alpha about you.The B word comes to mind,though.I’m assuming that you were born a female.You never know these days.

        • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

          Farmar’s not a traitor. I love his game, but there is no role for him with the Lakers. He’s not starter material, and the Lakers are keeping Marshall (cheap) and Clarkson (cheap) as backups. He’s moving on again–just like 2010. No big deal.

          • DKWTTY

            Okay.

            You’re a far wiser man than me,Josh.LOL.

  • Dion Dnice Snowden

    He shoulda been signed baq before Ryan Kelly smfh

  • roseducanna

    LAKERS must sign now BAZEMORE, HENRY and YOUNG.

  • Derek Clark

    One of the biggest things that I think I like and front office likes is that Bazemore fully embraced the bright lights of LA. Immediately he came in the game in Boston (against the hated rivals) and fit right in. He was directing traffic, calling for picks, and was actively involved with the crowd and the game from the jump. THAT is a guy you want on your team. Lakers don’t need to wait around for Carmelo to lock this guy up. Maybe Nick and Jordan Hill because they are more expensive but guys like the Baze and X should have been signed already.

  • PlayerHaters

    nah i’d rather take X over Bazemore

    • big game james

      Then you sir, are an idiot

      • PlayerHaters

        nah dont think so. never been in special ed before so i think im doing just fine. AND IF it ever did come down to just the two of them, i would take Bazemore just because he’s less injury prone

    • independentbynature

      I like both of them.

      • Badazztj12

        X returning most likely because he teaching kids at Lakers Camp

        • independentbynature

          I sure hope so.

      • PlayerHaters

        they’re both good dont get me wrong, im not taking anything away from Bazemore. its just that i personally saw more potential in X thats all.

        • independentbynature

          Bazemore is way better defensively.That’s what we all like about him.He can be a lock down defender.Lakers need that bad.

    The Knicks are trying to trade away Amare to the 6ers to clear cap space for LeBron.

    • Jim213

      Lebron won’t decide until 10+ days from now IMO. He’ll have to interview with the most likely suitors too.

      • independentbynature

        Does that mean we’re going to wait on him,too Jim?When do we get some players?

        • Jim213

          FO better NOT!,,,waste of time. Funny if he ended up with the Cavs. No title contention for the next 3 years.

          • independentbynature

            I just don’t see how he could co-exist with that idiot Gilbert. Lakers need a roster.Someone please tell Jimmy and Mitch.They don’t seem to know it.

      • kookiebuger

        The Lakers need to do something because if the Knicks do manage to clear up Amare’s 23 million plus a few other players they can offer LeBron a max and can re-sign Melo to a max, this offseason is starting to look bad for the Lakers.

        • Jim213

          Very unlikely unless a team that has cap leeway considers a trade to acquire another player. 76ers want Iman Shumpert to be included in the deal for Stoudemire. It’s said Phil won’t consider the deal with Iman involved. Too much salary $23 mil going to the other team for them to take a shot at Amare.

          Especially if he isn’t considered in their long term plans. IMO, just a few teams would consider acquiring Stoudemire. Too much salary being dished out to him.

          • kookiebuger

            The 6ers would be one of those teams it’s pretty clear from the draft that they don’t plan on winning anytime to soon by taking Emiid who will probably sit out all year and Saric who will be in the league in 2-3 years at the earliest plus they have 30 million in cap space available. The Knicks will probably have to give up Amare, Shumpert, and a pick which is feasible for them especially if it means LeBron James.

          • Jim213

            Phil’s not taking the deal proposed but we’ll see if he manages to ship him out. That would make the Knick fans ecstatic for next season being they were supposedly waiting until 2015 to make some major moves.

          • independentbynature

            It would make Melo ecstatic,too.He knows Phil will get it done.But,he wants it all now.

          • kookiebuger

            The only issue would be draft picks the Knicks have their 2015 1st round, 2016 1st round (Nuggets have the rights to swap picks), and 2017 1st round. I’m not sure if they will be willing to trade away one of their picks just yet, I guess they’ll need a verbal commitment from LeBron first, so that might mean we will have to wait longer for Melo to make his decision.

    • independentbynature

      Sure wish Phil was running the Lakers.

    I really don’t see how resigning Bazemore right now puts a dent in the cap to sign Melo, give me a break, give Bazemore a 1 mil salary and get it over with, it’s a no brainer unless he seeks a higher payday which I doubt.

    • Brandon A. Benitez

      Thank you! Yeah I get the whole wait for Melo’s decision then they proceed with whatever plan they have set up but you might as well sign the role players you eventually were gonna want before they’re gone. Yeah you can always get role players but you have to have SOME kind of idea of who you prefer

    • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

      He’s easily worth at least $2-3 million. But it’s no big deal for him to wait. He can’t sign a contract until Thursday anyway.
