They traded Bynum for Howard, and nothing for Nash.  You guys were doing cartwheels last year at this time.  Didn't work out, but you can't blame Mitch, he is a master.

great trades, we know, but jerry like pat riley got something for mesmerazing(spelling) people

I believe in Mitch, but not so much in Jim...with that being said, I still believe that we will raise a banner before Dwight does.

I see two possibilities.

1) Howard is dealt in a s/t and we get back Asik/Lin/?? It'll be difficult to win, but who knows. Hell, Dallas wasn't exactly favourites two years ago...

2) Tank. And by tanking, i mean TANKING. Amnesty Kobe and let him win a championship one year with the Bulls or Thunder. Trade all assets for picks and see how few games we can win next season. 

 

Unfortunately, i've lost a lot of confidence in the front office so i expect something in between - like amnesty Metta, play half-assed and end up with the 15th pick in the lottery and a few extra injuries.

LOL. Tank 2014? Even if the lakers doesn't want to tank the chances of this team winning 30 games is very slim.

Actually, you can blame Mitch. His job is to acquire talent that can work on the court together and produce wins. That didn't happen.

 

With that said, there isn't anyone else I'd want as the Lakers' GM. He's great at what he does, but let's not ignore his failures.

We are the Lakers, we don't tank. Just play out the season, whatever happens, happens.

So this is our roster so far

C Pau/ Sacre
PF Hill/Ryan Kelly
SF ???/???
SG Kobe/ Meeks
PG Nash/Blake

We need a minimum of 13 and we have 8...probably will add 14 since Kobe is out

Hopefully no more Morris

There's no point in amnestying him now. We don't have Clark and haven't signed a backup yet.

I'm gonna count on Morris and Goudelock returning. Maybe we can give CDR the SF position.

Gun for that 8th seed, but only to get swept.

im sure we can find 2 SFs who combined wont even make as much as Clark does.   Cheap services. No point in keeping Metta we're not contending
