L.A. Wins McKie 'Sweepstakes'

It looks like the Lakers have signed Aaron McKie to man the point for the next two seasons.

Excellent Laker blog Forum Blue & Gold had a nice summary of McKie last week - take a look to see how the rival will improve. I expect Aaron's numbers to improve - starter minutes, a superstar partner in the backcourt and the absolute lack of quality point guard defenders in the WC will impact it. But McKie at this stage in his career is nothing more than a stop-gap placeholder.

Makes you wonder why L.A. didn't make a play to move up in the PG-heavy draft this year to get Chris Paul or Deron Williams. Next year ain't looking as deep at that position.

The Sacramento Kings are a tough act to follow, literally.

SKB does the dirty work so you can forget about the blood, sweat and tears.

Oh, you'll still need the tears in April, though.
