The Lakers’ New GM

fan.jpgI have no clue who Andy Martinez is or his buddies are but big-ups for mentioning GetGarnett.com to Dan Steinberg. Keep spreading the movement, guys. :-)

Washington Post: I was hoping to talk to Awvee Storey last night for any number of reasons. To begin with, there was his jersey, which mistakenly read “Story” on the back. My old “Matt’s News” softball jersey read “Steinburg” on the back, but I figured the NBA employed better proofreaders than a slow-pitch softball league.

I also wanted to get Awvee’s feelings about his old wrestling-mate Gilbert Arenas’s “Takeover” season, and about his own career progress, after his D-League incident and all. He was certainly noticeable in yesterday’s win over the Sonics, going for 13 points, 6 rebounds and 9 fouls.

But I never got to talk with Awvee, due to multiple arena exits and the extreme rudeness of a Thomas & Mack Center employee who insisted that I could not possibly stand within 75 feet of a Summer League locker room. And so instead, I wandered back into the gym, where the shot-clock didn’t work and the PA announcer had to count down the seconds left to shoot the ball, where the Lakers were playing the Greg Oden-less Blazers, and I was left to do a story about the guy in the suit and shaved head carrying the sign pictured here.

He was holding it over his head and yelling in the general direction of either current GM Mitch Kupchak or the Lakers bench, depending on his mood. His friends were extremely happy about all this. Eventually, the game ops people showed Andy on the video board, and everyone in the arena cheered.

    How the hell do u know he wont be good? Anybody right now would be better than mitch. I rather have this guy whos animated and willin to do watever it takes to get his voice heard than to have mitch sitting on his ass waiting to see something magically happen. Id be doin the same thing as the guy whos heckling.

    A side note about the guy with the sign.

    On Sunday he chickened out and moved away from the hecklers. He said he didn’t want to be thrown out. A change of heart last night put him back with the gang. Way to go guy!! On Sunday he was wearing #8 Jersey. Change of clothes last night. Must have known pictures would be taken.

    That’s two plugs they have given getgarnett.com You owe them a share in all the millions you are making. lol

    At Sundays game they yelled out to Mitch to go to Getgarnett.com to see what the fans wanted and if Mitch couldn’t read he would tell him what it said. “Getgarnett Mitch” I reported on this Mon. Evening/ don’t remember the thread.

    It was well received by the crowd.halol

    Fatty – if you were one of the fans there, then thanks for sticking it to f’ng Kupchak (and Jim Buss). They need to be reminded once in a while.
