Need it. Now. Haters gonna hate.

So here is our current roster:

PG Steve Blake
PG Jordan Farmar (pending)
PG Steve Nash

SG Kobe Bryant
SG Jodie Meeks
SG Nick Young

PF Pau Gasol
PF Ryan Kelly (unsigned draft pick)

C Chris Kaman
C Jordan Hill
C Robert Sacre

So first thing's first, we are way over the cap. Kobe is taking up 30mil of it. Nash and Gasol are also on big money. The good news is...

Only Nash is under contract for 2014-15, meaning we'll be roughly 50mil under the cap.

Unfortunately, Kobe has adamantly stated he won't take a paycut, and he doesn't want us to tank. This could mean... deep breath should we rid of Kobe? Discuss.

But back to this season. We really only have 9 players under contract thus far, and it doesn't look like we'll be getting many more solid bench players, so we'll have to look at minimum salary guys, but who? It looks as if we're lacking in the small forward department. Kirilenko would have been a good addition there, but he's gone. As is MWP. Discuss.

Before you do, though, here are some good memories:

Dear Laker people,

Please keep a clear distance from the Orlando Magic's most recent draftees and its peoples. We will no longer be your 'farming system'. Therefore, please cease and desist any ill-conceived thoughts about stealing our youth. Breed your own players, and * off from ours.

Yours sincerly,
Orlando people

PS - Subbed to laugh at your s**t roster.

Just for you, we'll recruit Oladipo and Vucevic once we get a good pick next year. :)

Looking at the roster i dont think we will need to tank at all, we will just be very average this season.

lakers are making moves to put us in prime position when there are decent FAs available. we dodged a cancerous bullet in not landing melo. our depth is deep without being exceptional. but it could work in our favour as we have players who can move and start. so fluid.

C: hill/sacre
PF: boozer/randle/kelly
SF: young/henry
SG: kobe
PG: nash/marshall/lin/clarko

Marshall has been waived. :(

Yeah, we're not going to be complete and utter s**t like many are suggesting. Particularly if Boozer/Lin/Swaggy P become their most dangerous, we could be not far off the playoffs. I have a gut feeling we'll be lottery again, though. Did we trade our 1st away this year?

Where is everybody?

Pick 2 and either Okafor or another gun prospect will be ours to place alongside Clarkson, Kobe and Randle.

I think Swaggy would be the perfect sixth man for us although I doubt his ego would agree.

We also have the possibility of landing a big free agent like Jimmy Butler.

I'm bullish about this team for the first time in 2 years.
