Sadly the state of Lakers has come down to: hope, potential and tank.
The state of the Lakers is so bad that we have to look into the future and hope that in 4 years we're relevant.
We can sit hear and we can make all the excuses we want but the bottom line is we suck... s--- has come down to hope, prayers and banking on "potential" in addition things have gotten so bad that now we're down playing the importance of keeping this pick, LOL.
Russell: We still don't know what he is, Im not sure he knows what he is, is he a PG or SG? Is he a keeper or a moveable asset? IMO he seems more comfortable playing the 2, as of now Im keeping Russell but he's on the table for discussion.
Randle: I've said it before and I wont back off now, Im not a fan of his fit with this team/system, I wish him all the best that said Randle is definitely on the table for the right deal but Im not giving him away.
Clarkson: He is who he is, I don't see him getting much better, a nice piece at a good price but he can be kept or he can be moved, just depends on the return.
Ingram: He's a keeper.
Zubac: He's a keeper.
Nance: I like Nance, I would prefer to keep him but...
Mozgov: No comment.
Deng: No comment.
Young: It was time to go 3 years ago.
Robinson: Plays hard but...
MWP: Thanks for the good times, would make a nice defensive coach.
Black: Plays hard but...
Brewer: 7M damn...
Nwaba: Played hard but... back to the D.
Walton: Im a fan.
Its a dark time for the franchise, lots of uncertainty, 32M tied up on 2-bench players at best, lots of journeymen, kids with "potential" and the pick is unknown.
Pelinka and Magic have their work cut out for them, I hope they are up to the task.
I still believe... Go Lakers!
