    I think the Lakers will be very disappointed with their aquisition and by mid season, McStiff will be riding the pine or sitting out games........
    I disagree. I think the move is good for both teams. And for Josh.

    We don't have the talent for someone with Josh's skill set--a versatile, athletic complimentary glue guy. But the Lakers do.

    It's possible that it doesn't work out. But I think it is also possible that he really begins to shine in L.A. Heck, ESPN highlights loved him as a Pacer. Imagine the PR he'll get as a Laker.

    “People talk about how quiet he [McKey] is, but he’s really been helpful. He gives a lot of insight to players in how to guard certain teams and what their weaknesses are. The whole team listens to him, and it makes my job a lot easier. Having players like him is what pro basketball is all about for me.” —Larry Brown

    I was going to post something nice about Josh in this thread, but the zealots made me cringe at the thought.

    Either way, LA is a great situation for Josh. With Odom now gone, he can fill that versatile forward role (although much, much less effectively) on the Lakers squad. Happy for him, hope he finds success.
    Compare Josh's numbers from last year (his 4th season, 24 years old) to Lamar's numbers 2002-2003, (his 4th season, 24 years old) and you will see that they are a pretty good comparison.

    http://www.basketball-reference.com/...omla01&y2=2003

    Lamar was asked to be a star on a horrible Clippers team, and was asked to play significantly more minutes. Josh was a supporting player on a playoff team last year, and played his role perfectly. Far fewer minutes, but if you compare their numbers on the standard per 36 minutes basis, the comparison holds up.

    Lamar averaged 15.3 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 3.8 assists, while shooting .439/.326/.777

    Josh averaged 12.0 points, 8.6 rebounds, and 3.4 assists, while shooting .547/.383/.739

    That was as a complementary player to guys like Collison, Granger, and Hibbert. Make him a complementary player to guys like Kobe, Pau, and Bynum (or maybe CP3 or Howard) and you don't think that kind of production will translate even better?

    Kobe Bryant is going to make Josh McRoberts a MUCH better player. Kobe is going to be hard on the kid, but he will be willing to work hard to improve. Kobe will help set him up and see the game better. McRoberts is going to be a much better player in LA than he was here, and I loved his game here. Inconsistent is a word I would use to describe our entire roster the last couple of years. Rush gets most of the blame because he failed a drug test and it is too easy. McRoberts doesn't get the love, because 90% of people don't watch the game. If we had a more consistent situation, there is no reason for him to be going anywhere, but he is and I wish him well.

    Did I mention he is going to blow up in Lakerland?
