Guard Shannon Brown had mixed results in this year's playoff but I am glad the Laker's signed him again just to watch him fly into air at unbelievable heights.



"Shannon had a number of other opportunities out there, but he had been in L.A. for two years and they won two championships. The chance to go for a three-peat is very special to him."

Right, Shannon is a more valuable player in my opinion than Walton who will likely be out again this coming season with medical problems. What a total waste Luke has become. As soon as his contract comes to an end Walton will be history. Sasha, like Brown was not exactly a major force for the Lakers in the playoffs; in fact I was hoping another bench player, Jordan Farmar would have stayed with the Lakers since he was a stronger performer than Vujacic.

I'm not impressed by someone who can ONLY fly in the air and can't shoot

I think he deserves another opportunity and I'm glad he got it.

There are a lot of guys sitting at home watching Shannon Brown on TV that can shoot. The reality is that the NBA game is played above the rim and the highest percentage shot in basketball is a dunk. Shannon can also play some pretty decent defense. Don't hate, there are plenty of other players in the NBA that are good shooters.
