Analyzing Baptist's remarks on his above point by point suggestions...

1. Kobe and Shaq can't coexist anymore.

2. Phil as an assistant? Get real. He's done.

3. Cook was a rookie this year. Why trade a rookie? Sampson isn't under contract and is available in the expansionn draft. So he is gone.

4. Nash would be nice, however Dallas has only one free agent,him, so I'm sure it will be tough to wrangle him from Mark Cuban. K-Mart is a headcase, the last thing the Lakers need.

5. Slava is a free agent...audios Medvy.

6. Rush doesn't have nearly the talent to start at 2guard. And if you suggest keeping Kobe, where will Rush play at? The man is a spot up shooter, and can't create his own shot.

7. Agree on building Walton, although he will never have NEARLY the offensive capability of Wally.

8. Agree on Shaq losing a few pounds.

9. Whoever the new coach is will bring in their own staff. Jim Cleamons is most likely the choice if the Lakers hire within, although a hard push for Pat Riley would be nice.

10. George has a HUGE contract and is untradeable. L.A. is stuck with him for several more years.
