Maybe this could just be the off-season topic.

 

Nothing from what Real Deal said in the opening post has changed.

Use Pau to get a SF and some backcourt help. Our frontcourt is fine

Simply it's time to blow it up this team sucks and that's it. Resign Howard and keep Kobe everyone else should be traded for younger players or expiring contracts, use the amnesty on metta and hope Steve Nash retires.

Sucks that more than likely Mike Antoni will stay but we have no other choice even though that guy proved to suck just as bad as potato head. We need younger faster players that can shoot very well since Dwight is the future and the plan is to build around him.

Yep. Should have got Fisher instead of Nash since Ramon opted out.

And since Dwight was hurt, he should have traded Bynum for Iggy since Philly did that anyway.

He should have traded Pau before the deadline even though he was injured. He injured Pau.

He should have kept Mike Brown and if they would have lost one more game with MB, they would have missed the playoffs and Meeks would not be injured.

He should have signed LeBron because its his turn to win and we shod accept that this year was as bad as it gets (for the Lakers).

Dwight and Pau come in hurt and out of shape. Nash legs breaks. Kobe death stare. Blake injured cBernie. MDA , no Phil. Dwight,Pau and Hill go OUT in same game. 17-25. Dr Buss passes.Hot tub time machine Kobe. Kobe Achilles.make playoffs, everyone goes down.

Real Deal's opening post was great. I think the Lakers being an old team trying to play young is a good summary of this season. He explained very well what a disaster it is basketball-wise.

 

I truly believe it's a big reason why the Lakers have had trouble staying healthy all season too. Old guys playing big minutes trying to constantly run up and down the court was going to be disastrous. You think the Lakers have had "bad luck" :rolleyes:  with injuries this season? Try next season if things stay exactly the same. The players will be a year older and will be coming off injuries. It would be even worse next season.

The most disturbing thing I wrote...

 

If not, we're heading in the same direction Boston is...but without a Rajon Rondo...and with the Clippers having the potential to rip away all of our free agent prospects, rebuilding may not be a pretty sight.

So today...

 

Celtics - 7th seed, without their star player who does everything on the court (Rondo), down 0-3 to the #2 seed, with a player who may be retiring in the next 1-2 years (Garnett) and a star that could be traded this offseason (Pierce)

 

Lakers - 7th seed, without their star player who does everything on the court (Bryant), down 0-3 to the #2 seed, with a player who may be retiring in the next 1-2 years (Nash) and a star that could be traded this offseason (Gasol)

 

Meanwhile, with Westbrook out, the Clippers actually have a shot at getting to the NBA Finals...and after snagging Matt Barnes from us, and picking up Grant Hill (and having Barnes, Butler, Turiaf, Odom and...well, CP3...all on their roster as former Lakers), plus winning the division, you start to wonder if it's not all falling into place, sadly.  Free agents will be attracted to the Clippers, more than ever, while others may be turning us down because of our coach, or our current situation with the roster.

I'm just concerned about the Lakers going forward in general.

 

I'm not too concerned about the Clippers factor. They built their team really before the Lakers' downfall this season. And, they're not going to have room for a big time FA anytime soon. Money and role are big factors if we're talking about adding role players.

 

The Lakers just have to do a good job in finding the right talent to add to this team. Plenty of teams in the NBA are deep, and obviously not all of them are attractive FA destinations. It would be nice to be the first choice for everybody, but you can still add good players if you have a good eye on talent. That's really what has kept the Lakers down.

The all-laker hindsight team:

 

Dwight Howard / Hill

Josh Smith / Jamison

Ron Artest / whomever Hawks offered for Gasol / Clark

Kobe Bryant / Meeks  / Goudelock

Ramon Sessions / Steve Blake

Looking into our performance?

 

We sucked. MDA sucked. Nash didn't live to expectations. D12 working on it

Pau late bloomer.

Metta was horrible.

 

Kobe was amazing as usual but his season was murdered by MDA.


Mike D'Antoni is GARBAGE.

Our great offensive team has 34 points in the first half.

 

At this point, I really think he does nothing positive for this team. He can't even cover up the Lakers on offense when their talent is limited on that end.

 

The Lakers shouldn't do anything else if D'Antoni is still coach. It would be a waste of time. The Lakers need a lot of help roster-wise, but no roster will win with this guy as coach. I don't think he would win with the Heat's roster.

This thread could probably be merged with this one:

 

http://lakernation.c...s-go-from-here/

 

They're quite similar imo, just a suggestion, nothing more.
