the spurs have a lot of good support players - that's on buford not pops - pops is a great coach no doubt but the difference between a guy who gets to a couple conference championships and one who wins titles can be vastly overestimated -ask Eric Spoelstra

Re: Is it time to start the Pau Gasol watch back up

And it's not like Woodson is a terrible coach anyway. Some of his Hawks teams seemed like over-achievers to me (though Drew has done much of the same), and though he got a bad rap for Iso-Joe offense, he's put together a nice one in NY.

But yeah, with great players, a coach needs to get in their way to not have abundant success. VDN is one of the few I see in danger of this.

Lakers Rumors: Lakers Targeting Ryan Anderson For Pau Gasol?

By Ryan Ward | December 2, 2012
The trade rumors continue to circulate around the NBA with the Los Angeles Lakers supposedly dangling Pau Gasol once again in order to find a better fit at the power forward position for Mike D’Antoni’s offensive system.

The ideal fit for this position would be a forward that can stretch the defense with an ability to consistently be a force from beyond the arc. Reportedly, one player that continues to get mentioned as a potential candidate for the Lakers in a trade scenario with Gasol is Ryan Anderson of the New Orleans Hornets according to Mitch Lawrence of NyDailyNews.com:

The name that keeps coming up for the Lakers is Ryan Anderson, the Hornets’ long-distance shooter who was once a Net and later played for three seasons with Howard in Orlando. He’d be perfect. But first, they want to see if Nash can jump-start Gasol.

The current Lakers squad has yet to reach its true potential with Steve Nash yet to make his return to the floor after suffering a leg fracture in the second game of the year. Without Nash running the show at the point guard position, there’s no telling if Gasol is truly the right fit as the team’s starting power forward.

If Gasol continues to struggle in D’Antoni’s system even after the return of Nash, there’s a good chance the Lakers’ front office will pursue a trade for Anderson or a player with a similar skillset.

—- Show off your team pride with your own Lakers Nation t-shirt! —-

Amar’e Stoudemire of the New York Knicks has been tied to the Lakers as of late with talk of a potential swap for Gasol. This trade rumor has since been refuted with no talks between the two teams taking place. Amar’e’s contract is enough to discredit the rumor with the Lakers not looking to take on the enormous salary remaining.

Anderson is an intriguing option on the other hand at 24-years old with a deal that is comparable to Gasol’s, but with three more years on his contract opposed to one remaining on Gasol’s deal. Anderson is owed $8.3 million next season, $8.4 in 2013-14 and $8.5 the in the final year of his contract.

The reigning NBA’s Most Improved Player is coming off a career year with 16.1 points and 7.7 rebounds per game while shooting 39 percent from beyond the arc for the Orlando Magic.

In 15 games for the Hornets thus far, Anderson is already making an impression with career-high numbers across the board shooting 42 percent from deep while averaging 17.2 points and 8.0 rebounds per game.

Re: Is it time to start the Pau Gasol watch back up

Like it or not, I knew it was coming (the rumor, not the trade actually happening). The minute D'Antoni was hired it was clear this roster wasn't ideal for him nor Nash. Adjusting the personnel to Nash and MDA when you have Kobe, Dwight, and Pau seems beyond moronic, but that's what you get when you bring in a coach so reliant on a system.

I hope they hold on to him as he declines and loses more trade value.

Not really. Short of him making a demand, the Heat are never trading Wade.

ok, you can't be lobbing multiple attacks when not personally attacked and claim self defense. And yes, I'm too lazy to edit the quotes.

This is world class hate. This tops DaRizzle-Ron.

Maybe he listened to your demand that he "get the hell out of the thread"

You know how Ron is about thread titles. Darizzle started some "misleading" ones and Ron chewed him out. Darizzle didn't take it lying down.

That's at least when I noticed it.
