Kobe would destroy Bargnani!! Going into his seventh season, there is no "ON" button you can press. At least they have another stretch power forward (Jamieson) that can insert when they see his true colors. Bargnani doesn't play hard for nobody, he plays for himself. He wants to chuck up shots and wants no accountability on defense and rebounding. Again, Kobe would destroy Bargnani!!

That's just not true... or at worst, it's just not known.

This is why the trade never happens IMO.

I can literally see Kobe going to the GM and saying HELL NO to any Gasol for Bargs trade.

Direct quote from Bargnani:

“I do things that are more complicated than rebounds and defence”.

What happens when you can do nothing, you're value is worth less than Ryan Anderson. Remember a few years back, when posters were justfying the no. 1 pick and they would still pick Bargnani over Rudy Gay and Lamarcus Aldridge. The only thing I can say is Ryan "f****n" Anderson.

Well, I guess we're talking about different players.

THIS.

i can even remember kobe saying, that he as the leader of the team and that he wants to win a ring together with gasol, i can't see him given away by the lakers in a hundred years

especially not to the Raptors

When a player says that it's not a good sign.

Sam Mitchell is a dofus.


Everytime I see this thread on the page that lists all of the different sections of the forum, I see the Lakers symbol and Marc Stien: Lakers Recieve and my head thinks for an instant that it is an official trade

The Raptors should NOT try to acquire Gasol. Acquiring Former All Star/Hall Of Fame Centers has never worked in Toronto(Mourning,Olajuwon,O'Neal,etc..). If they're doing a 3 or 4 team deal where Pau goes to a contender then fine. There's not much teams that can afford Gasol though.

Raps should selll everybody on a multiyear deal for as many picks as they can. Not prospects, picks only. Rebuild to compete in 5 years, draft high upside talent only.

Sell em all. This lazy plan where Gasol makes everything better is just not a good one. Think harder, sell, sell, sell.

it's almost as if posters on here know nothing about bargnani, absolutely nothing. Bargnani in his career has been a better player playing in the high post, where he can shoot the mid range after getting room with a pump fake, drive with his quickness and pull up when he's made room, or drive straight to the bucket, or back his man down for an easy layup. that's where he's most versatile on offence and dare I say it, the man he's most compared to, nowitski. Bargnani is not, I repeat, NOT most effective on the three point line. he's not a good enough shooter from deep to be. gasol also operates in the high-mid post best, or at least he did, so acquiring gasol would be worse for this team. worse contract, worse player (right now), being put into the same position Bargs should be if we want to score the ball more efficiently. bargnani's defence has NOT, been the issue. his rotation's have been fine, or at least, not worse than the rest of the team. I really do believe the coach is to fault here and ocho. those two need to go. I've seen too much of an elite scorer being wasted on the 3 line just cause our coach is too dumb to incorporate a driving point guard and a high post player. and if anyone says it's not possible.. celtics right now anyone?
