Noah is one of my favorite bulls of all time but if he has something left in the tank I must miss those games. Which is entirely possible.

Statistical comparison of players in question:
https://www.basketball-reference.com...igma01&y6=2017

-You will notice Noah cannot stay healthy. Season after season after season. That's no good.
-Nene is too old and done. That's no good.
-Faried doesn't have enough to judge on. His defensive stats look okay, same with Gortat and Speights.

Go with Dwight imo.

Faried is younger than Dwight and won’t demand touches like Dwight. He’s also not nearly as bad at FTs.

Dwight still has more talent but the Lakers should really be avoiding players who will take touches away from LeBron and AD.

Yes, Dwight has been healthy except for 2 seasons in the last 15 years. That sounds healthy to me. He was able to play extensive minutes even when his back was messed up that 1 season with the Lakers.

mehhh, 10 shots a game can be afforded to Dwight even with LeBron/AD.

Honestly if Noah could stay healthy, I would definitely want him on Lakers. But he is done health-wise. He has not had a single healthy season in past 5 years

We need rebounds and post defense. Dwight is the best rebounder of the 5. Defensively, Dwight arguably has the advantage. Experience-wise, Dwight easily sweeps the floor. Shooting, it's between Faried/Gortat/Speights.

Speights is not a post player so I would not get him, same with Gortat. Faried is better offensively but Dwight definitely better defensive player. I think Dwight has the overall edge as long as he doesn't complain about the number of shots he gets, minutes, diminished role, etc. Just shutup and play.

dwight played 9 games last seaon.
noah played 42 games last seaon, 7 games before that.
gortat played 47 games last seaon, but 82 games before that.

we just need a dude who can play 70 games + to shed minute off AD and macgee.
we dont need a dude who plays 40 games only.

Stop mentioning Faried. The guy was unplayable in the playoffs and we don't need a godamn 6'7 scorer as a our other C when we need defense and a BIG man.
