    Kobe does speak Italian, so perhaps it wouldn't be a terrible partnership.
    yeah since Kobe grew up in Italy that just means Bargs would get a multilingual tongue lashing... but maybe saying it in Italian would finally get through to him ... rimbalzo!

    from what i remember, Houston wants to be a team that can get up and down the court. not really a fit for gasol.

    Eliminate the ones that we know won't come to TO (e.g. Paul, Howard) and the pool thins considerably. Milsap might be interesting, as would Reddick and Mayo, but I don't see that much else that excites me.

    Agreed. No "superstar" is coming to Toronto, but the 2nd-tier players you mentioned would still be worth pursuing this offseason simply because they're upgrades to what we've currently got.

    The Lakers can wait all they want to see how it works, but I think that the writing is on the wall, ever since Kobe insulted Gasol by telling him to "put on his big boy pants". That situation is toxic, and it is only a matter of time. There's no way Kobe and Gasol can co-exist anymore.
