Yes, this is the same stupid front office that got Nash and Dwight without giving up Gasol. Our management is so dumb.


I will admit I kinda wanted him. We had no production from the point guard position. But now, Nash and Blake are nearing their returns.


they excecute what they want well,,,but theyre just average at knowing what they need.

Yeah like I said with Nash's return close and Morris' last two games they probably feel like they can survive till Blake got back. Now IF we'd lost to Washington he'd probably be in a Lakers uniform right now. But we won three in a row. So I guess that was enough.

That said, I'd have loved to have had West. Makes me wonder who they are trying to make room for by moving Ebanks.
 

I've always liked Steve Blake.

I wanted him but I am guessing they know more than we do. He did get kicked off the mavs for a reason. Gotta move on.

Gotta love it when random posters on the Internet question a front office that has delivered five championships in 13 years.

While I did want him in a laker uniform because we simply sucked and needed any string of hope. I see FOs thought process. West will end up shooting Kobe 5 games in. Guy is a head case

1. Didn't you say "get him here now"......change your mine much.
2. They brought us 5 champions....that is excellent but it doesnt mean they don't make mistakes.

I wonder what the front office is trying to get.

Hopefully a small forward.
 

Trade for Austin Rivers, say, Hill & Johnson.

i smell something fishy here.

Our FO is so stupid that we traded a 9 year old brat to get the best center in the league!!

Pick up Fish for leadership and strong lockerroom presence.

Fisher is down with a knee injury and is signed by the Mavs and won't play for 6 games.


Let go of the past.

We need more talent right now. We desperately need a competent back-up PG who can defend. Bad move.

He doesn't have to play that much... and this team can use some more leadership. Having three great leaders in Kobe, Fish and Nash would benefit us on our drive to #17
