John Ireland wrote in his blog that the Lakers & Wolves did indeed try to get KG in LA. Ireland covers the Lakers road games during their season for KCAL-9, he’s pretty connected:

John Ireland Blog: …The Celtics now go into this season with Garnett, Allen and Paul Pierce as the odds on favorite to win the Eastern Conference. The Lakers will go into this season with pretty much the same roster they’ve had for three lousy years. Hopefully, Lakers management can pull a rabbit or two out of a hat and improve the team before October, but I don’t see another Garnett out there.

By the way, I know for a fact that the Lakers tried everything possible to bring KG to LA. They worked on it for months, and offered the Wolves half of Southern California. But in the end, McHale clotheslined the current Lakers the way he did Kurt Rambis in the 80′s.

  • BEC

    Lets stay away from all this KG crap now. We didnt get him, lets move on. Cant wait for the new banner and intro. Any idea on the new site name?
    The STAFF should pick like 4 or 5 new site names and put up a poll for us to vote, that would be nice.

    Listen up everybody. In every dark cloud there is a silver lining. Yeah, I feel the pain of losing Garnett to the Celtics. All of us here spent endless hours on this site. We were all so excited when reports came about Garnett coming too LA and it seemed imminent that he would wear purple and gold. And now it all feels hopeless, but I believe that there is a bright side to this story. If Minnesota agreed to send their beloved Garnett to us, their most hated rivals, our team would have been torn apart. We would have given them everyone minus Kobe. All Laker fans know a trade for Odom Bynum is already better than what the Wolves got. If i were a Minnesota fan I’d be pissed right now. Who is their franchise player? Al Jefferson? Really? They’re basically the Boson Celtics minus Paul Pierce in the WEST! McHale is worst that Mitch! Anyway, I still hold faith that our Plan B will come through. I was always one to say that I would rather much have Jermaine Oneal join the roster while keeping Odom than to gut our whole team for Garnett. My dream roster would be: Kobe, Odom, JO, Luke, and Fisher. My dream scenario would be the Lakers vs. Celtics in the finals. And we will once again crush Garnett’s hopes of winning a ring. He will regret not coming to LA to play with Kobe. All we need is faith my fellow Laker fans. GetJo.Com

    My dad and I call Jermaine O’Neal babyface because he looks like he has a face of a baby.

    So it would be cool(by cool I mean funny) for us to name the website GETBABYFACE.COM

    Screw the Celtic trio (McHale, Bird, Ainge) I dont want J.O. or anybody else from those turds. Lakers need to find another option. Bird will screw us if he can. If anybody really thinks these Turds want to help our Lakers at all your nuts. Theres Bad Blood between these 3 GMs when comes to the L.A. Lakers. All you have to do is listen to an ass like Bill Lambieer who still hates us and anything that has to do with L.A. He hates the Sparks and Michael Cooper especially. Lets just get away from these hating Turds and find another avenue to pursue.
