    Until they do something of substance regarding the roster we ALL should be pessimistic.

    Marc Gasol looks slow as hell but he looks like he has good passing ability.

    Sun Yue looks very agile for a 6'9 guard.

    Well, Randolph would've been nice but I strongly doubt Portland would deal him in the West.

    I'm excited about Marc Gasol's potential, perhaps more than I like Andrew Bynum's.
    Based on what, the fact he just went 48th overall?

    He seems a lot smarter with the basketball. He's not as agile as Bynum but they're equally slow. If Bynum was gone, i really wouldn't miss him.

    You gathered this based on a few YouTube clips against lesser competition? There is no way that if a Gasol brother was that good that he'd slip out of the first round. I mean, just look at the bevy of project Euro picks that went ahead of him.

    I wouldn't miss Bynum, but he has pretty decent trade value.

    After that first regular season game against the Suns every Laker fan was ready to calm Andrew Bynum the next big thing. He's not that player yet but he's an athletic big man with skills. Whereas Gasol is a slow big man with some skill. People diss Bynum mostly the Kobe nuthuggers because he's one of the guys Kobe specifically cites but if I were the GM of the Lakers and I got a do-over I would have done the same exact thing as Mitch.

    Bynum has skills but he's still raw of course it's going to take him awhile but he has shown flashes. Remember when he was drafted he was the youngest player ever drafted. If he had gone to UConn like he planned even for a year he would have been a high lotto pick. None of the guys drafted after him have been real big time studs. Lee has been the most productive and Warrick is showing to be a decent-solid player but neither of those guys has the upside Bynum has.

    I just provided the link so everyone else can see what he looks like in a game. As far as lesser competition goes, the European leagues are far more competitive than we NBA fans give them credit for. The leagues are a notch below the NBA but a cut above the NCAA level. True he wasn't the best pick nor even was he the best euro pick as his position, but given the predicament that we are in, I see Bynum being as good as gone so i welcome another big center with potential with open arms.

    As of right now, Bynum is the better of the two players, but that's not really saying a lot. Like i said above, i see Bynum as good as gone so i'm just going to have to be optimistic that perhaps Gasol will progress faster than Bynum has. The only reason why i'm open to Gasol is that Bynum has good trade value and it's a necessity for Bynum to be had. He should've been gone last trade deadline anyway.:ddoh:

    Favorite Bynum moment was when he shook off a facial from Shaq and dunked right back on him, then even found it in him to give Shaq a quick shove.


    Edit:
    Here's a link for Papaloukas
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Plrxg2AvXvs

    Imagine next year you see on the Laker floor:

    Papaloukas G
    Radmanovic F
    Gasol C
    Yue F
    Bryant G

    WTF Kuptchak!
