It seems the lakers are choosing LO over Ariza. I would think they should keep Ariza and LO but if they can't keep both I would go with Ariza. Seems with Kobe going to get his max he didn't care about the rest of the team so why should Ariza. He will sign with Portland IMO......

The Clips moved ZBo for QRich which clears up PT for Griffin and also clears up cap space for next year. Ariza would be a good fit for the Clips but they only have the same to offer as the Lakers so we all know how that would end....lol

The Clips are going to be dramatically improved and hopefully will make the PO's....

Though Ariza made a huge difference this year, IMO LO is more versatile. Don't get me wrong, I'd love for both to come back but if it's one or the other I'd go with LO. With Detroit signing their guys, Trevor is going to find it hard for someone to give him the money he wants. From the article I read it looks like Clev, Rockets, Clipps, Raptors and Blazers are showing interest. Clev...LBJ is their SF. They don't have more money to offer more than the Lakers. It would be their MLE and he would sit. The Rockets...Artest is there. If they don't sign Artest, then Houston can grab him. If Artest leaves, he'll go to the Lakers. The Clipps...LOL. Ariza grew up in LA and knows about the JV team. Raptors...maybe but I think they'd like to sign Marion. Portland would work but they are after Hedo. This year is not a good year to be a FA. As far as Kobe, he DIDN'T opt out so they could have some cap space.

Any body else think that LO was only playing well cuz he knew it was contract time?

I would prefer the Lakers keep Ariza over LO, but that's just me.

LO would be making less than he was before and Ariza is asking for about triple what he was getting paid. Look how the last two signing went for the Lakers...Luke and Sasha. Lakers are kicking themselves on those two.

Just in...
Real GM "NBA sources told FOX 26 Sports Wednesday it is unlikely free agent forward Ron Artest will return to the Houston Rockets. League sources told FOX 26 the Rockets would be willing to offer Artest a one-year contract at best. The sources said because of that the chances of Artest resigning with Houston are remote.”

Looks like Artest just signed his deal. Via Twitter. Doesn't say which team. I'm thinking LA since they passed on Ariza.

I agree. Not sure how it will affect the team's chemistry. On the flip side, not a bad fill in if Ariza wanted more money than is available.
And who could blame Ariza for going for the money while he can. If LO was being paid 14mil, Ariza should have been paid at least 1/2 that...but what do I know.

Ariza was offered 5.6 mil from the Lakers, he feels disrespected (oh please, he was a scrub til this year) Kobe certainly made him better. It is said he would take the same mid level from another team just to be spiteful (what an unloyal dick) The East is really building up this off season. Looks like Cleveland will land Ariza. What a disrespectful punk good rittens.

I'm thinking the same thing. Go to Clev and sit the bench out of spite. Good luck with that. :(:(

Role players play with a great player, and end up with good season (playoffs, conference or NBA championships). Then they seem to think, maybe they are as good as the star players (Kobe, Jordan, Nash, etc.). The reality is, they are still going to role players, maybe starters, but they'll never be able to carry a team like the few stars in the league. Go figure, might as well get their money if someone offers it to them. It's all about the money and not winning.............right????:)sphss:)hand

I think Portland is going to blow it's wad on Hedo Turkoglu. He will more than likely sign a $50-60 mil contract tomorrow when he is visiting Portland.

It kind of leaves LO and Ariza both without anywhere to go that really needs them enough to pay them big money. HOPEFULLY they both stay in LA but it's looking like Ariza might leave because his "feelings" are hurt.

I really wish the Lakers could/would ditch Vujacic. That guy is almost 100% useless.

tommy-laker, i love how you talk about the "VARSITY" lakers first then get to the JV talks .... :)devil xo
Only because they are the NBA champs and so forth......They are struggling on figuring out how they can keep both.

Still I say

F THE LAKERS

:)


Ariza won't leave if he fets the same money elsewhere.....

If he can get more somewhere else why should he not go that route.

If Portland signs Hedo then I agree with you about them not getting Ariza.

You Laker fans turn on a dime.....lol

I don't think anyone has turned. Looks like all have said they wish Ariza would come back but if he signs some where else for the same money out of spite...f him. If he gets more money, good for him.

He had some great plays, but mostly off Kobe......I didn't see him create anything for himself......again-this is a 24 year old L.A. kid, ACTING like some spoiled kid from LA.......seriously, you have one decent season-and think you're the shiznit.....lol. I bet ol Ron Ron is chomping at the bit hoping that Ariza follows through on his little pity party.......lol at the mindset of some of these fockers......
