Even if he was healthy it wouldn't have made a difference. Best to sit it out and do what you have to do to get right. All the starters should honestly. I'd cash it in and put Kobe on injured reserve if they'd let him.


lol I don't think Kobe would take to kindly to that.

Hill should just get himself ready for next year. We got the Duke of Earl now haha

Meanwhile, our GM watches games and does nothing but smiling.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

Exactly what I've been saying.

All you hear is b.s. rhetoric and nonsense from management on all levels. This blind belief that somehow things will magically turn out alright.

This year has been a failure on all levels.

There's not much management can do really. In the offseason after Sessions left we had to adequately replace him and we actually got someone much better in Steve Nash. We needed depth so we signed two very good shooters in Antawn Jamison and Jodie Meeks. We traded for a legit superstar to build the franchise around in Dwight Howard. We kept Gasol and World Peace was in good shape. Everything looked great as far as the roster was concerned. The pieces seemed to fit well until we actually got on the basketball court. I'm not sure what a trade would do for this team.

It needs to be shaken up. They need to start maneuvering for next season right now.

Waiting around will do more damage than shuffling some cards. I don't think they'll make the playoffs any way at all right now, but pieces have to be moved around to get things in some kind of order for next season. This sitting around and towing the company line, acting like all is well, is just terrible team management.

I think you can get more possibilities in the off season. If this season is truly done which it seems to be pau, metta, and even hill if we choose to move him are more valuable in the off season. All are expiring contracts and I think teams may over value pau when they havent seen him play for a while. Also more teams are willing to deal in the offseason.

Moving players now would only be to salvage this season and wouldn't get us as good as players as in the off season.

I am not giving up on us making the playoffs yet.

When I said it wasn't our year, I meant it from a luck/health standpoint.

I still believe and have hope in this team.

They may have been informed that nothing of relevance can be down currently, thats why they acting like things will work themselves out.

They need to let their bad decisions run the course by expiring. Kobe included (though he was not a bad decision, though you can get more for max money). Pau, MWP and Nash have contracts so bad, you had to know this is how it would end. I just thought it would be next season.
