RE: Lakers sign The Glove and Malone!!!
In case you haven't heard Lakers yesterday signed The Glove and Malone. So all you Lakers haters might as well whip out your napkins and start wiping your tears in advance cos ain't no stopping us now!!!

People are already saying that's too many egos on one team - not so!! What people don't realize about teams with franchise players like Shaq and Kobe is that the team NEVER makes a major mmove without consulting them. They infact lobby for the players they wamt and Shaq actually said publicly he would like to play with Gary 'The Glove' Patton and Malone. Those two cats will NEVER have signed if they didn't feel confident that Shaq wanted them there..

Kobe has said he'll test the free agent market. We all know that's some bull there's no way such an ego maniac will leave a championship team and go for broke.. He's staying put.

RE: Lakers sign The Glove and Malone!!!
Sunset I actually agree with you on that. Karl doesn't really rile me up his style is kinda awkward. But at 40 he's still a better power foward than a lot of young guys in the league. He's a hardworker, his stats is still on point and he STRONG. His style might be old school but unlike Duncan he can be exciting. Proof - his rivalry with Rodman. And he still thorough and not afraid to throw it down anytime. Who will fight dude anyway he too cut..

Imagine trying to get into a fight with the Lakers next season? When Shaq, Malone and The Glove shows up it's pretty much over.. Doug Christie watch out!!

Its over for the Lakers whether they have Payton and Malone. Phil Jackson's psychology has gone about as far as it can with Shaq who IS the franchise. Shaq doesn't have the ruthlessness Jordan acquired from all those years losing in Chicago and adding an old Payton and old Malone will be like an old Jordan in DC or Horry in the last Playoffs. Tired and toothless.

One more thing about the Lakers is that now Shaq is tired who will carry them? Kobe? Maybe. Maybe not. I do not think Phil Jackson trusts that Kid's judgement - as much as he might smile on the bench and pretend he does. So the system will be against Kobe and that along with the Colorado incident might create problems for the Lakers.

Moonlight you're obviously a Laker hater I can tell by the fire with which you spoketh oh brethren.

But my brethren stats don't support your tired and toothless comments about Malone and Paton. Check the stats man I'm scratching my head here, tired and toothless?! oh well that's your opinion so I can respect that.

Shaq had a late surgery and put on weight that's why he was a lil' slow this year. Everybody kows that already they guy is just 31yrs. He already hired a personal trainer so we all know what's comin...

RE: Lakers sign The Glove and Malone!!!
Just as expected, been waiting 2 weeks for this mess, and it wont be official till the 16th.
All these MJ made me not get a ring klub. They should kuku add Barkley to it, maybe Ewing too.
Yeah they have the talent, but can they get the chemistry?
Anyone remember what happened with Kobe and Malone at the All Star game like 2-3yrs ago? This is going to be an interesting season.
Malone used to be a very dirty player in his hay day, I'll never forgive him for the 41 stitches he gave Isaiah Thomas Mad
And also how he knocked David Robinson out cold like 2-3yrs ago Mad
Payton used to be an arrogant idiot back when he played with the Sonics, bad temper, hopefully there wont be clashing of heads.

RE: Lakers sign The Glove and Malone!!!
I see the Lakers self-destructing. You know why? Because the cracks are starting to show.

Crack 1 & 2

Malone and Payton are past their best bro like it or not. Desperate men do desperate things and its telling that they are jumping on the Laker train hoping for some good old Phil Jackson magic to bring them the NBA titles they both could not get in their prime.

Crack 3

As for Shaq, you can turn a 300 pound elephant into a lion for only so long. Phil got the best out of him for 3 years and I see Shaq reverting back to the way God made him this year. Fundamentally unmotivated.

Crack 4

As for Kobe, he badly wants to be the man. He has stomached second place for so long and now the boy wants to turn into the Man. Only problem is he has the wrong style. Lakers dont want no MJ. They have Shaq. Sure Kobe can ball but does he get the final ball? Not with Phil Jackson around. So what happens when Kobe wants power and Phil does not give it to him. No 2 becomes another distraction.

Crack 5

They don't call Phil Jackson the Zen Master for nothing. The man can motivate. He gets players playing to their strengths. He gets his players to play a SYSTEM. But a system is good only for so long as players obey it. Phil lost control of the system this year. Shaq was tired. Kobe was doing his best MJ impression and everyone else stood around watching. Horry became the fall guy but this year the Lakers proved that too much of success is too much of a good thing. There is only one way to go from here. Downhill. No MJ around driven by memories of 6 years of losses. No MJ driven by his love of the game. No MJ. Thats Phil's problem and he knows it.

Moonlight...you hit the nail on the head!

Miprincess...I caouldn't have said itbetter about Karl and Payton..I never liked him either... ... A.T.I.T.U.D.E

This seems like the last desparate attempt of men past thier prime

Too many hard heads cannot make a winning team... So who's gonna lead? Kobe, Shaq, Malone, Payton...each one wants to lead and we all konw it...
same theory as the one that says about two many hands in a pot..the food will never come out tasting right Expressionless

I am frankly embarrassed by the Lakers..it seems desperate.
not hateration...just stating the obvious...

holla

All I know is that I'll be laffin my behind off if they dont win, cause Malone will be not just without a ring, he'll be even broker, with his $1 salary he's taking.
"Lets put our hands 2gether for the MJ stopped me from getting a ring klub, so I'll put my pride aside and look stupid, just to get one" Tongue out
Thats a danggone shame, what the heck is the NBA becoming???? Sad

RE: Lakers sign The Glove and Malone!!!
I am a huge Laker fan but i don't think this combination is going to work. All this players are allstars and also team leaders, i don't think any of this players will want to bow down for another player. The bottomline is that individual ego is going to be the problem.
People are already saying that this Lakers team will break the old Bulls record of 70-2 or something like that. I don't think so, evedrybody on the Bulls team then were role players from Pippen to Horace Grant, the only superstar on the team was Jordan. The Lakers just need role players that can do their job, i think Kobe and Shaq are just enough for the team.

RE: Lakers sign The Glove and Malone!!!
I just want to say I respect all of your opinions because you guys know bball and the game.

At the same time I don't like arguing with Laker haters because they are so blinded by thier hate it's UNBELIEVABLE!! Lots of unnecassary points....

Kareem, Magic and a lot of power houses used to play on the same team it's nothing new... this dates back to the 70s and 80s but salary cap issues mucked up the business for a minute.

It made business sense to get these to cats to the Lakers and they were the only team in the NBA that could even think of courting them with the amount of dough they were offering. Dudes won't hesitate to lambast cats that jump teams and go for the big bucks but when cats take a HUGE pay cut for the ULTIMATE CAREER GOAL, dudes start hatin' (because it's Lakers involved I guess)

I said before how dem two cats couldn't have signed there if Shaq and Kobe didn't want them there. Well today's press conference (where Lakers introduced Malone and Paton to the media today) confirmed the politiking that has been going on behind the scenes for 2 WHOLE YEARS led by Shaq daddy that culminated in the signing of dem two cats. THESE ARE WELL THOUGHT OUT DECISIONS BY MEN WITH FAMILIES sometimes we forget that...

HERE'S THE BOTTOM LINE - STATS STATS STATS!!!
Dudes are shooting off how Malone is old this and that and I told ya'll to check the stats but obviously it doesn't dupport ya'llz arguments so you chose to ignore it..

PEEP THIS:
Karl 'THE MAILMAN' Malone 2002-2003 stats
Regular season: REBS AST PTS
7.8 4.7 20.6
Playoffs: REBS AST PTS
6.8 4.0 19.6
Career Stats: REBS AST PTS
10.2 3.5 25.4

Gary 'The Glove' Paton 2002-2003 stats
Regular Season: REBS AST PTS
4.2 8.3 20.4
Playoffs: REBS AST PTS
3.0 8.7 18.5
Career Stats: REBS AST PTS
4.2 7.4 18.3

need I say more.....
