At an abismal 17-24 the Lakers fans might as well give up because the players already have. Except for one-Kobe Bryant-who is having the best season of his 17 year career averaging 29.2 points per game. So what does Kobe think? TRADE EVERYONE!
So why don’t the Lakers trade everyone? The Lakers pay a hefty $130 million dollars to lose. Lakers owner Jerry Buss has to be wondering why pay anything to lose, heck losing is free!
One way to cut costs, get rid of Pau Gasol! Who makes almost $40 million over the next two seasons.
This year Gasol averages a sad 12 points per game, 8 rebounds per game, and 3.7 assists per game. These numbers are not worth $19 million per year, not even close. Furthermore his lack of performance brings the rest of the team down. He is lazy on the court, which is why I deem him The Spanish Curse!
Trading Pau is not a new idea and the Lakers haven’t done it because he is “undervalued” by other teams. Well I challenge that notion and say he is valued right where he should be.
So don’t take Kobe’s advice and trade everybody, because there is still a ton of talent on the team. Just trade Pau-for lack of effort and for taking too many Barcelona Siestas while on the court.
