See, this is what I can't stand at all.

We lose and stuff that has ZERO merit comes up.

Jim meddles and Mitch just takes it?

Jerry doesn't meddle and never has?


Y'all act like Jim is out there like Al Davis, Mark Cuban or Jerry Jones.


I can't understand why people can't blame Nash for not playing well... KObe for getting older and not being able to do the same things, Dwight for having a back surgery, and Pau for his knees giving out.


Jim isn't calling the freaking plays, and MANAGEMENT doesn't have to HIRE PHIL.

They fired Mike Brown when they thought HE was the problem.

It's more than coaching.

it's injuries, it's chemistry, it's confidence.

Some poor coaching decisions. Dwight has made crucial turnovers in a few of our losses.

Kobe as had bad shot selection down the stretch of a few of our losses.

Refs have not been fair in a couple losses(Joe Crawford)

Pau's lack of lateral quickness and strength cost us a few games.

It's not JUST coaching and ONLY Lakers fans talk about the front office this much.

It's ridiculous.


So by this line of logic, the FO can acquire whatever for players, even if they dont have the talent to perform at X level ... and when they dont perform at X level, its those same players' fault? Huh? Nash is, at best, a well past his prime all star point gaurd, at worst, a washed up former shadow of himself, who in his prime could play no defense. Jamison has never been a decent defender and is a volume scorer. Meeks is an on agin off again streaky shooter, mostly off. I can keep going but you get the idea.

There is plenty of blame to go around- players, coach, FO, owners. But to suggest that its mainly the player when they were never capable of performing at the needed level is not accurate in my view.

Better idea - Sell the damn team to Magic Johnson and his investors. Not the greatest coach, but a team under his ownership would never make these mistakes.

Why did Jerry Buss give his doofus son the keys to the kingdom and not his daughter? Jeannie just seems so much more capable and intelligent than Jimmy Boy. I was just wondering if there was a reason.


It's been reported that Jerry is old fashioned and therefore wanted to give that control to his son rather than daughter.

In theory, Jeanie would probably be a better owner, but it is what it is.

I recall a thread on another boardat the start of the season where a guy suggested that Donald Sterling is now a better owner than the Buss family. We massacred the guy for suggesting it. May have to revisit that thread, nit because Sterling is any jewel himlsef, but because he has gotten out of the way of his basketball people and finally let them make decisions. Cant say the same for the Buss family lately.
