On behalf of TheLakersNation.com, I would like to thank all members participating in our September and final GM challenge for this summer. These challenges were designed to encourage the users to lookup and research references and educate themselves about individual players.
We invited several judges and four of them accepted our invitations but unfortunately two of the judges, D-Briks and Rpoc, were not able to fulfill their mission due to other personal engagements. Cancellation came to late to appoint replacements. Outcome may have been different if we had grades form all four judges. However the remaining two judges worked really hard to comb through all trade proposals and scrutinized each and every suggestion to achieve a fair assessment.
Some members made several proposals but we evaluated only the final offer. We based our evaluation on four criteria:
- Securing the future of the team: 3 Points
- Having a contender team on the floor now: 3 Points
- Suitability to other teams: 2 Points
- Simplicity, number of teams and players involved: 2 Points
- Total points available for each offer by each judge: 10 Points
Taking the above four criteria in consideration and points allowed for each criterion, we are announcing the following…
1. The winner Ishaq Ahmed Shariff (aka; Shaq786) scored 16 points out of 20.

The winner of the General Manger Challenge for month September is awarded with the Certificate of Managing, issued by the TheLakersNation.com and signed by the founder Mr. Kam Pashai
Judges decisions are final and not negotiable.
Judges Notes: Honestly, I was a bit disappointed by the quality of the proposed trades, and the goal of having a contender team on the floor with an eye on the future was not met by any measure. I was hoping to see more unknown but promising young talents, but household names overshadowed most trades. My objective was to get the users to research the 2007 draft list and lookup the EuroBasket players and I emphasized it several time on the comment section, which was widely ignored.
