i think

I think the lakers could go for Drew Gooden or go cheap with Tim Thomas. Thomas isnt as athletic as he used to be, but would still be good coming off the bench.

Gooden

Gooden would probably be the best option left for them, but they would still lose a lot of what Odom provided. If Odom is gone, that is probably going to mean bigger minutes for Walton, which isn't always a good thing. The Lakers really need to try to address this point guard situation no matter what. I don't think they'll get rid of Fisher, but they need to find a younger more dynamic guy...Raymond Felton anybody? Sign and trade with Charlotte for Farmar maybe?

Sign and trade with Charlotte for Farmar maybe?- No

If they lose out on Odom, they will not win a title

How are you gonna add Drew

How are you gonna add Drew Gooden or Hakim Warrick?

Morrison is a good shooter, below average defender and I don't think he can replace Odom on the boards and passing

If all Odom could do was

If all Odom could do was shoot, then Morrison could replace him, however, he did so much more. Morrison is not the answer. Honestly, there arent many players that can provide what Odom can. IMO he is a top three SF in the West. Soo, they Lakers are just out of luck if the dont bring him back.

We never said anyone is

We never said anyone is going to replace odom.......but you need someone to add to the team, but i doubt odom will leave.....he even apologized to jerry buss about not responding to his deals and wants another one.......odom wants to win .... and wants to stay on a winning team for a while

The Lakers may have to find

The Lakers may have to find a player to do a S&T

The Knicks will get someone in 2010 or 2011. Melo was NY born and he comes back to Brooklyn alot.

Lakers

If they lose Odom, they will sign somone on the cheap for like 2-4 mill. There have been some real good suggestions on here with guys like Warrick and Gooden. Obvioulsy none of these guys replaces what Odom broughtto the table, but the Lakers could still win it all. Eventually Bynum is gonna need to get 30+ minutes a game. Gasol and Artest make a great forward combo. And Walton, Morrison, and Powell can all contribute off the bench. They just need one more guy to play 15-20 minutes and rebound. The only real risk is if Bynum gets injured again.

were talking bout the lakers if they need to find some money to sign a player ti go back to the ship they will get it

kobe bryant is a house hold name so is the los angles lakers who doesnt know of this team....we will get sponser owners will put up more money if they see were losing out on free agency, players will be traded first ound picks secound round picks, we got artest for a reason.......we got pau for a reason to nothing is impossible for the lakers nobody had lakers going to the ship 08

ps los angles is a big stage if you perform well here you can have a chance to cash in later down the road {ARIZA}

so them signing a player for now for cheap price

may help a player get a ring and raise his worth again perfet example is {ariza}

IMO, it will be hard to find a player who can replace Odom's overall shooting, rebounding and passing. After Odom, noone in FA is on his level

replacing odom

Yeah, no one out there is going to replace what he brought to the table. But If he leaves, that just means Bynum, Artest, Walton, and Powell will get some more minutes. The Lakes would just need to sign another big to help off the bench and be ready in case Bynum goes down with another injury. Losing Odom really hurts, but I don't think it will be as bad as people make it out to be. The Lakes have the people to step up. Plus, Bynum needs to start becoming more of a focal point now that he's 21 and entering his 5th season.
