Special thanks to Faith, Fatty and Cyrus for creating this challenge for TheLakersNation.com. Again, if you guys have any suggestions, you want to throw at us, please e-mail us at Webmaster@TheLakersNation.com.
What if you had the key to Mitch’s office while he’s enjoying his “well deserved” vacation? You’d have the opportunity to sneak in his unoccupied office, make yourself comfortable in his leather armchair, and work his phones and computers to play the General Manager of the glamorous Los Angeles Lakers until he’s back from vacation on August 24. Most importantly, just ignore Jimmy Buss and do what you think is right.
You got one week to prove you’re better than Mr. Kupchak in improving the roster. Post your suggestions following these rules:
- Support your trade ideas with facts and why you think your proposal would help Lakers.
- Do not propose unrealistic trades such as Tim Duncan, D. Wade, Lebron James etc.
- All trades must comply with NBA and CBA trade regulations
- Do not trade Kobe Bryant.
- You are allowed to spend $5-Mil luxury tax.
- Staff and judges may not participate.
- Contest ends on August 23
Also, you may pretend that you’re the General Manager of the other team and counter or negotiate offers made by the Lakers fantasy GM. If you’re countering an offer made by other bloggers, please make sure you base your arguments on facts. To make a counter offer, please begin your posts with words like this example:
“I am the GM of the Pacers and I am countering the trade offer of Fatty”
Judges, Faith, Fatty, Cyrus and LakersFan81 will evaluate all proposal and a winner will be announced on August 24th.
Winner will receive a certificate of appreciation: “The General Manager of the Month” honored by TheLakersNation.com.
