This dude would be a PERFECT fit for the Lakers. He would do JUST what Penberthy did, just sit outside and drain threes when Shaq kicks it out to him.

That's right, but they think they need more players as insurrance for injuries. But don't they already have enough guards?

Well they keep people on the IR always, but who knows, maybe he won't even make the team.

I had fun last year watching Indiana murder Penn State while forcing Joe Crispin into shooting 3-15 (brother Jon went 1-7)... The defensive hurricane of Dane Fife and future Big Ten MVP Tom "Cov" Coverdale was just a little too much for the newest Laker stooge...
The Crispin Brothers Greatest Fear...
