McRoberts to the Lakers

Josh McRoberts signs a two year deal with LA... Marc Stein from Espn says.

Nice backup PF for LA... Still have to do something can't just give Odom away for nothing!

McRoberts very

McRoberts very underrated.

People forget that he's only 24. He's not Lamar Odom, but he can do a lot of things on a decent level. He shoots it well. He can handle. He's a versatile defender. And he's a great athlete.

Solid pickup for the Lakers.

I hope he can showcase some

I hope he can showcase some of his versatility and mainly his insane athleticism for a 6-11 white dude. Now if they had someone to throw him some lobs he would be even more valuable for them.

I predict McBob being a candidate for the Dunk Contest due to being in the big market now (If there will be one).

Derrick Caracter has a torn lateral meniscus in his left knee and will have surgery tomorrow. Could be out two months or so.

Thats really bad news, because it seems Caracter has developed better with his "character" issues. Even asking Magic Johnson for advice.

From DC's twitter. http://twitter.com/RebuildCaracter/status/146685510948093955

@MagicJohnson as a upcoming star in our league what role do you think would best fit me for this yrs Laker Team?

Caracter is tripping

"as a upcoming star in our league"..... who is he kidding? That's almost as ridiuclous as calling Josh McRoberts an impact player on the Lakers.

It's comical how overrated

It's comical how overrated Josh McRoberts is by posters on this site. You guys realize he's a scrub right? Just because he went to Dook and was a 5 star recruit, doesn't mean he's anything special.... Someone said his block numbers per 36 min are sick? LOL... 1.3 blocks per 36 min should be expected from a 6'10er....

HUGE downgrade from Lamar.

@FDAPO

McRoberts will have an impact on the Lakers.

He's nothing special, but he does everything on a decent level. He's sort of like a poor and broke down man's Lamar Odom.

All he can do is dunk.

All he can do is dunk. Everyone who says he plays defense has no clue what they are talking about because he is far from a defensive player.

"He's nothing special, but he does everything on a decent level. He's sort of like a poor and broke down man's Lamar Odom."

He is what Yi Jianlian would be if he was born in Indiana. Lamar Odom has been an NBA stud for a decade. McRoberts has failed to be consistant for his entire career. He is tall and has tools, but so does Yi.
