Wouldn't mind that actually. Brown as the defensive coordinator. Brown and Clifford working on defense and D'antoni on offense. But that probably won't happen.

But getting Smith and Morrow seems like what Mitch wants.

I'm already imagining lineups where Kobe while using himself as a decoy(while dictating the offense while Nash sits) getting open shots for Meeks on one side or Morrow on the other. Would be very nice as I think Morrow is a more viable shooter at that position to be fed than Morris was. Though Morrow isn't really a defender, Smith on one side and Dwight on the other would make up for it.

And I blame Mitch for building a team around a 39-year old PG and I also blame him for keeping washed-up players such as Gasol and World Peace.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

This front office could watch their houses catch fire, and they wouldn't do anything about it - Would just say that it'll work itself out.

Probably my biggest issue with Kupchak this year was him giving away that draft pick. How you cannot account for injuries or everything just falling apart is beyond me. His arrogance got the best of him.

You don't give away an unprotected draft pick unless its for a young, up and coming player, much less a 38 year old point guard.

That's SUCH hindsight, we never have good draft picks and we actually improved every aspect of our team on paper. You can't blame Mitch for getting the best passing PG for the LAST years of KOBE's PUSH.

That can't be understated, the Lakers are loyal to the guy who helped put them BACK in the BEST FRANCHISE CONVERSATION.

The guy who made people forget how the 90s were not a glorious era for the lakers.


Arrogance is beyond harsh. It's an emotional reaction to the poor season.

This is true. And while effort is to blame for the lakers, its the coach that has to get the effort out of the players. Never liked the D'Antoni hire at all, guys system does not work at all with our personnel, and quite frankly even if we had the personnel that is not a way to win a ring you need commitment on defense to bring home a ring, not just taking a lot of shots.

All I want for Christmas is a Laker girl :D

Like I said Mitch dropped hints he's trading Pau for a defensive forward and a better shooter for the bench.

Josh Smith and Korver or Morrow.

well, forgive me if someone has already touched on this, but isn't getting your players to play hard part of coaching a team...an inability to do so seems like a coaching problem to me

So big thing I noticed AGAIN today in the game against Memphis. D'Antoni puts in Pau WITH Dwight still on the floor. Defense breaks down, we lose offensive efficiency. Why would you put them in together if you know it doesn't work? What kind of [expletive] is this? Dwight injured again. Our season IS OVER. Trade everyone outside of Dwight and Kobe. Jettison D'Antoni. Gasol and Nash trade could get us something good. PLEASE MAN.

Mike D'Antoni is GARBAGE.

Ummm no, It's "Antoni." Never before have I seen failure rewarded so much, as I have with the hiring of this idiot, and the keeping of him employed.

He probably has naked pics of Jim Buss. All I can come up with to explain him having a job.

He probably drugged Jerry Buss before his hiring.

I'm sick of people saying it's lack of effort, especially D'antoni. It's a poor excuse for lack of proper defensive coaching. Players are just in the wrong positions on defense, which makes them precarious to getting beat. This makes them look like they have no effort.

Watch any game and you can tell that the Lakers are terrible at off-the-ball or weak-side defense. That has nothing to do with effort. That's poor management, scouting, and coaching. Players have no idea what to do which make them look like fools. When you're in the wrong position and you know you're going to get beat, no matter what you do, then of course you're going to most likely give up.

Maybe Mitch can go shopping some more in Phoenix? I bet the fire sale starts soon over there. Perhaps Mitch can trade Earl Clark for Jermaine Oneal or go for the "big" trade for Beasley?
