The lakers dont have much to offer and any trade that breaks up the core group of fox,horry,fisher, would severely damage their chances at 4peating.
The general manager said "their intention is to keep their team intact cause they have earned the right to pursue a fourth title."Youve got to let them do that.

you could read it all at www.dailynews.com and click on the sports section and the article is called
LAKERS LOOKING FOR A NUGGET

Im so happy they arent trading those guys especially horry.They need them even if they are getting old, the 5 starters have to much chemistry.

hmm, I like them too, HOWEVER....

They could have all the chemistry in the world, but the fact is if you don't make improvements, the rest of the field catches up...........FAST.
As we saw throughout the playoffs, with the exception of the finals (the east still sucks), they're not that far ahead of the pack.
IMO, we need a nice free agent acquisition, or yes, a trade for better position in the draft.
No changes=not likely to 4peat.

Well its pretty hard to get good players when your 27th pick in the draft. Also the lakers dont have any valuable person to trade except george.Whatever, the starters are used to the triangle and know how to win and if they broke the starters up, it would not be beneficial.
We cant really do anything but sit back and watch what happens to the lakers team next season.

No matter what changes or doesnt change the lakers 4 peat isnt guranteed even with shaq and kobe.

We should think about trading some backups for 2nd rounders.

As we get closer and closer to the draft, it seems less and less likely that the Lakers will get Qyntel Woods.:(

Although, they could make their team better, by making these moves:

Draft Juan Dixon if still available
Sign a back-up PG
Sign Malik Rose and Jerome James
Resign Mitch Richmond and Brian Shaw
Trade Samaki Walker and Lindsay Hunter to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Trajan Langdon

Lineup:

C: Shaq/James/Madsen
PF: Rose/Horry/Medvedenko
SF: Fox/Langdon/Kobe
SG: Kobe/Dixon/Richmond
PG: Fisher/PG/Shaw

That lineup would contend for another title.:yes:
