You see a handfull of pieces starting to move - including the Clippers getting Doc Rivers. But what are the Lakers doing? Looking at [expletive]ing Shawne Williams??????
You're breaking my balls here, Mitch.
Tell me this:
If you dont believe we can win next season, why not just amnesty Pau or Kobe and then aim for the lottery. To me, that's a stronger move towards a championshiop, than ending with the 7th or 8th seed again.
When you see several teams making room on their roster for a pitch to Dwight why do you stand pat? If i was running the show i would have Micth, Jim, Jeannie, Jerry West, Magic, Kobe and Phil calling Dwight 24-7 telling him how awesome an opportunity it is to play with the Lakers.
You see the Clips get Coc, a move that really can change a lot for the Clippers, but you stick to MDA who is a complete [expletive]ing tool. Why not send a massive F-U to the Clippers organisation, by hiring Phil Jackson for a two-year deal. That's the type of message you should send: you get a good coach, we get the best.
I think we can win this upcoming season with what we have and what we can get and it's not that [expletive]ing difficult: Sign Phil in a Front office role, hire Shaw as head coach, amnesty metta, sign Martell Webster or Dorrell Wright to mini-midlevel, sign Ronnie Brewer to vet minimum and see what else we can get for cheap. Perhaps move Blake, Duhon and perhaps even Hill depending on what's out there.
Instead we see the Lakers organisation scratch their asses while Dwight ends up going to Houston.
