would the lakers need and want him? my friends and i were thinking, he could be Kobe's Pippen. I'm not sure. this is not an expert opinion, i just want to know what your thoughts are. with TMac's current situation with the rockets and his health, I'm not sure any team would gamble on getting him. if the lakers would take him, is he going to be more of a liability or an advantage for the team?
