Lakers have nothing but mistakes last year

So, expect more mistakes this iffseason

So if we would have done nothing last off-season and had no Bynum, no Clark, no Meeks, no Jamison we would have been better?

 

 

Ramon left. Got Nash.

 

 

if Kobe were just healthy right now, we would be at least IN this series right now. The bottom line is without health we have been good enough to snag 7th after a horrendous start 917-25). 

 

 

I just don't understand what people want the front office to realistically do.

 

 

 

We had Kobe for 2 more year. They said forget drew and got Dwight Howard. is it their fault he wasn't at his healthiest?

 

Is it their fault that Pau played in the Olympics and was wore out when the season rolled around?

 

Was it their fault Kobe suggested the Princeton offense to Mike Brown and ultimately had to get a new coach based on that, because Mike Brown had done better in his more primitive system with less pieces the year before?

 

 

 

People though Nash was JUST the point guard to play off all these stars.

 

Few thought( though I did) that Kobe would need to be the ball-handler for this team. Once that happened and Dwight played a defensive role and Pau played the role of the offensive big, we became a pretty good team. But how many games did we get to play that style before another injury.

Firing D'Antoni is first no doubt about it. Hopefully Mitch sees how badly he's getting outcoached right now

Honestly next year, ebanks is gone so I see the lakers signing CDR to replace him. I would go hard after Martell Webster and Corey Brewer to provide some much needed depth. I think we will be fine like that. 

 

Rotations would be much better as all these guys are younger and more athletic than their counterpart and relatively cheap. However I do believe MDA will cause more harm than good by playing his awful 7 man rotation and create chaos with the players not getting time. 

 

Also getting Metta to opt out and sign longer for less money would be great as well as buying out chris duhon's sorry ass contract.

If by build depth and a bench you mean fire D'Antoni, then yes you're right.

I didn't think our bench is even that bad.

 

Blake: Was injured but has been playing amazing lately....now he's injured again.

Meeks: Pretty much hit or a miss. Our weakest link.

Jamison: Pretty solid. Took a pay cut to be here.

Clark: Has had some big games but has been a little uneffective lately. He's still good for a backup PF though.

Hill: Hill was injured the second half of the season but is a good backup Center.

 

We need to focus on our starting 5 IMO. MWP HAS TO GO. His defense is really not that good anymore. He's like above average and he's just such a liability on offense.

How you think JAmison is solid when he is the most pathetic defensive player on the team is beyond me. SMFH at you.
