    Since 1970 this Lakers franchise has hit an all time low point, in my 40+ years of following this team. I havenít seen this teams roster be this bad since Kareem was acquired in that huge deal sending Junior Bridgeman, Dave Myers, Elmore Smith & another player for a young super star who was about 26 years old. At that time we filled our roster with an old players such as Lucious Allen, Don Chaney, Cazzie Russell & a drafted rookie Don Ford as starters. You all remember the rest & it was history in the making with new ownership & some great deals that brought us Magic & James.

    We always had the opportunity to improve this team because we always had players we could move & an owner with the passion & desire to win! Now his son takes over & we are in disarray. I have NEVER ever seen a team with no coach before or after a draft, while trying to sign free agents (donít wanna hear bout the super stars opinion of who cause Mitch keeps saying Kobe was never given that opportunity), going into summer league with no system, etc. Who in the world is gonna sign with us when they donít know whoís going to coach them? We donít even have more than 4 players signed to fill a starting line up, unheard of.

    Face it, Lebron was never gonna sign here nor Melo for what itís worth. I had so much confidence that we would acquire K. Love & or Irving after their rookie contracts or that group instead of all these rumors which are completely absurd of getting players who are already 30 years old & doing it all over again in 4 or 5 years. Havenít they learned their lesson on acquiring older players or BUILDING a team like the Spurs, Suns, Raptors or OKC. Iíd rather have 7 players making 7-8 mill a year instead of what they have done signing a once great player coming off a achilles injury who is 34 & has much mileage on his legs & body or sign another super star for another 22 mill & still not have the pieces to make the playoffs. We all know they over paid Kobe, he certainly isnít worth 25 mill anymore & they could have given him 20 mill & either he takes it or walks!

    Kobe has been great, but Iím a Laker fan far before & after. He is all about Kobe since his early days, the Piston Finals loss & since he forced Shaq out. The days of him isolating & hogging the ball were over 3 years ago, thatís why management shouldíve known, even more with latest injury. Iím a fond believer in you donít pay a player for the past you pay them for what you think they can contribute now & in future.

    The Lakers have NO plan, I firmly believe that. Jimmy Buss is gonna Frank McCourt this team into the ground, Mitchís hands are tied & heís gotta be stressed out. This team, city & fans would be better off with new ownership! We are in a sad pathetic state right now, no room for improvement & players like Nash canít be traded cause of age & contract.

    I tell my son every week, stop getting your hopes up because they wonít show any improvement or get any better until Kobe is gone. They must rebuild this team not add huge salaries & old age to it. My years of knowing this team & years of cheers & jeers have taught me to not get over excited about this situation & according to these unbelievable rumors, hopes & threads are immune to emotion unless it is finalized.

    I would like us to be respectable & sign players who play hard & understand the all around game. I thought the Meeks, Youngís, Johnsonís would do well here, but the last two coaches have ruined any young players ability to sustain production. I would love to see Jordan Hill come back & be given a chance to play 30 minutes a game if the training staff is sure his body is up to it, we need more compe ive players not selfish players.

    Melo nor Bron was considering LA, many posts & concerns are obvious. I would like this team to move on & hire a coach immediately & get involved with the free agents that are NOT table scraps, because once again I believe thatís what were gonna end up with if they donít start acting instead of pretending & creating their own fantasy team. Why is this so hard for everyone to understand?

    I am so disappointed in ownership for this false conception & misleading of the fans, we are the laughing stock of the league right now. I just saw the Celtics make a trade for a decent player in Marcus Thornton, but we donít have the pieces to even pull off a trade such as that because we have NO trad-able pieces, yes Pau should have been traded two years ago. Iíd much rather be in the position of having a young super star at age 26 like Kareem & build a team, than add on older players. Like I said I really donít see anything good in the next 2 or 3 years until Kobeís is gone or retired & Nash are gone! Don't hold your breathe all, but I am not to optimistic about next two or three years. By saying that, it could be 3 or 4 years before Lakers basketball is relevant again. I certainly hope management proves me wrong?
    ^ Props to this guy for taking Buss and Co. to task, but a nice meltdown nonetheless.

    Tom - i dont see Kobe accepting the fact that the lakers will be medicore for thr next 2 years of his contract, are you sure he sounded that way? Wasnt he the one thar said a few months ago that rebuilding is not in his mo? I guess hes ready to go out with 5 oes.. oh well hopefully randle leads us to multiple les in the future.
    Woj mentioned about the spurs persistence making them a contender for paus services.. imagine if the lakers forced the spurs into a S&T... while we got splitter and danny green.. that would be great.
    Damn I miss the good old days. This sucks
    Getting Lin and Boozer even if it comes with picks basically destroys our franchise. This is not how you build a championship contender.
    I agree putting crappy teams together makes the Lakers look like a bunch of losers. They are building a reputation that looks like a penny pinching FO that dreams about stealing a star from someone else. Dr. Buss is turning in his grave. Time to sell the team.
    Exactly. You guys really wanna see a garbage team for two more years at minimum? You think that's gonna be attractive to potential FA stars? Jim buss is killing our franchise. Next move will be hiring mike Dunleavy
    (following the Lin trade) I'm more interested in what else is coming our way.
    Swaggy P and Jordan Hill

    Most of y'all have been good to me. I do not wish Lin Only Fans on your board.
    I wouldn't wish Lin on my worst enemies.
    Most ridiculous unnecessary no sense trade I have seen in a long time if this is true, we don't need Lin, he stinks & we have enough guards. What are we giving up another 1st rd pick, who else are we getting this makes no sense & ties up more money!!!

    AWFUL, AWFUL, AWFUL... A 1st rd pick, LMAO what a 20th pick...

    What a F'in joke, why are we helping the Rockets to make it worse...

    Makes me wanna throw up!!!~

    Like Spurs will give up Splitter for Gasol.

    Gasol would be a nice acquisition but let's face it, its just temporary. Gasol is almost tapped while Splitter its still young and has tons of mileage.

    Rockets have dealt Jeremy Lin and a future first-rounder to Lakers, sources told ESPN. Houston clearing space to land Bosh, keep Parsons.
    pathetic if u ask me

    this is their plan B?
    PATHETIC!! We are the damned 76ers helping OTHER teams build contenders.

    EFF you Lakers front office and eff you to Kobes handicapping contract!!!

    Kobe gets a thank you while us fans get a "hey just stick with us the next 2 crappy years!"
    You don't have to stick around.
    I have been around since the 80s but thank you for your permission. Dont mistake anger and frustration for disloyalty.

    It kind of makes you look ridiculous.
    This is... deflating. I trust they have a greater scheme working here. I just can't believe this is how the off season wraps up.
    Lakers still think they're in the running so they trade for a PG that Melo dislikes. Great. What kind of monkeys are running the show?
    ESPN is interviewing the guy that ran on the court to hug LeBron right now... Seriously? Way to promote stupid behavior like that ESPN! Just for a stupid interview.
    And that stupid (bleep) Linda Cohn interviewing. I wish someone punched her in her laker hating face.
    I love how everyone in support of this trade keeps mentioning some future pipe dream. Every (bleep) year it's the same thing here on LG "wait for 2012 guys" "wait for 2014" now it's "don't worry 2015 will be our year to land a big FA" and then when we get nothing it'll be 2016, etc.

    Keep puffing the future is bright pipe while other teams are working in the present to make an actual team.
    Are you completely drunk off all that whine that you've been doing?
    Now I'm legitimately worried about the franchise. Did we really just watch 30 years of prestige get shat on? We can't even land Carmelo Anthony?
    I have a feeling a big move is gonna come soon either with a FA signing or a Pau S&T.... and I hope it makes us excited... I'm pretty sure the Lakers aren't gonna let Pau walk without getting a all-star calibre player in return so that NY rumor package is probably fake.

    I don't think 5 mil is terrible it's not cap busting.
    It's beyond terrible for a terrible player :dead:
    Swaggy was far from terrible this year! What games were you watching? Probably wasnt because kobe wasnt playing lol
    I have watched Young play enough to know he is exactly the opposite of what a team player should be .

    A black hole who doesn't play defense, doesn't rebound or pass and shoot everytime has the ball.

    Popovich wouldn't want him to play even for free...
    Mitch doesn't deserve to be fired...

    He deserves to be placed in a life boat and forced to paddle himself to Asia.
    I told u all that Mitch and Jim had no idea what they were doing after the Lin trade. We just wasted $22 million cap space on 3 career backups
    And we missed out on Lionel Hollins.

    And now we've missed out on Lance Stephenson.

    This has got to be one of the dumbest front offices in the league. So incredibly stupid.

    No, thinking on it, they're the dumbest front office in the league.

    Just think about all the crappy moves they've made. Dumbest front office in the league. Just stupid.
    Mitch is just clueless IMO

    He signs Young to a decent deal and then blows $18mill on Jordan Hill for 2 years? Can the guy stay healthy? CMon man
    Nearly 15m in 2015 cap space gone just like that.

    And no Lance Stephenson.

    We re-sign two guys that lead us to our worst season ever, and now they're taking up all of our (bleep) cap space next season, and preventing us from signing Lance Stephenson.,

    We're also about to hire Byron Scott.

    Jim and Mitch need to go. This is no longer all on Jim Buss. Mitch is just as stupid as he is.
    I've been saying for many years that Mitch is probably one of the worst GM's in the NBA. But nobody wanted to listen. Mitch has done a unbelievably piss poor job of managing the cap, drafting, and just overall decision making.

    He's been living off the greatness of Jerry West (Kobe Bryant) for far too long and it has finally become clear enough that even the biggest Mitch supporter cannot ignore it.

    How in the world do you give this pile off crap roster to Kobe after a ruptured achilles and broken knee? What kind of disrespect is that?

    Kobe will be traded. No possible way he isn't traded within 7 days. That's why Nick Young got a 4 yr deal. He's our starting SG for now.

    if Kobe somehow got traded to the Spurs, this forum would turn into a blackhole and suck every bean3r into it.

    Obviously I hope he rots out there in LA.

    How about this?

    Splitter $10 mil
    Ayres $3.5 mil
    Daye $1 mil
    Bonner (Sign & trade) $ 4 mil
    Two second round draft picks

    Even then we're short $4 odd mil in salary gap. Astounding that Fredo would give Kobe $48.5 mil.

    Why, it's a 20% cut on a 25/6/6 stat line. It's reasonable.

    Question. And you can't pick both.

    Are you a Kobe fan or a Laker fan?
