Wednesday chat transcript

By the Kamenetzky Brothers

We may be deep in the untamed (and somewhat boring) wilds of Lockout Forest, but that doesn't mean there's no room for lively Lakers talk. Among the subjects covered in Wednesday's edition of our weekly chat: The need for a real backup center and some names of potential candidates, whether Kobe Bryant should use the lockout to fix those fingers, what happens with a "hard cap," and revisiting the Ron Artest-for-Trevor Ariza "swap."

All that and more! Here's the link to the transcript.

Also, we're still taking suggestions to rename "The Triangle." The only catch? "Lakers" can't appear anywhere in the title. That aside, we're pretty wide open, so leave some ideas in the comments section, or Tweet us.
