      Boston got a boatload of assets and picks from Pierce, Garnett, and Rondo
      Lakers got nothing from Gasol, Howard, Kobe and paid for LO to leave for Nash who robbed us of picks smh

        The only people who can figure it out are the ones in Staples everyday.

        Maybe they are, but what we as fans also see is Jeanie Buss following Mitch’s lead by covering up and spinning this free fall.

        Doesn’t matter if it’s a Fortune 500 or Mom and Pop, you spin it cover things up that hole gets deeper and darker, I know what I’m talking about here.

              MS, maybe not for longview fans, man, but there’s not a majority questioning her.

              Most fans question the Puppets, not the PuppetMaster.

              Jeanie’s well liked in the community so she mostly gets a pass here. Jimmie’s never been liked and he’s the one who felt the need to prove his basketball acumen so he’s set himself up to take the heat.

              But all of this is common knowledge. .I just don’t see the “cover up”.

              Three people know the truth. One of those people is dead.

              Quite possible one or both are covering up the real truth.

              Jeanie was about to open the Cookie Jar when Phil got passed up. But the jar stayed closed.

          And a footnote.

          If you asked Jeanie Buss, a simple question: What is your organizational strength right now?

          Would she even know? I do not believe she would.

          Jeanie is dumb when it comes to on the court concerns. She doesn’t look or sound confident doing press, she thinks she projects confidence, but it’s phony, disingenous. She may be Hollywood but she can’t act worth a d**n.

          She is our greatest strength for PR and Sponsorships. But she’s not ready to be an Organizational leader, she is scared, and that is a big reason she cannot roll heads. Because no one in the Lakers organization outside of their ‘yes men’ squad have faith in her.

      I was thinking good, it gives me hope that the NBA knows how important the Lakers are to the league as we are not the NFL (American Religion)….If OKC, Utah, or any other podunk city’s team is bad it’s irrelevant. The NBA needs the Lakers to be relevant and to have a superstar once Kobe is gone. The smart business move would be to make sure Simmons is the one who takes over after Kobe.

      Can’t say I agree with him on where he feels Kobe should be ranked, but he did make what I felt were a few valid points about playing with Shaq.

        therealhtj 7:18 AM on January 7, 2016 Permalink | Log in to Reply

        Reggie Miller, local guy and Laker homer, on the show later that same day put Kobe in the 10-15 range. As high as top 5 to just outside the top 10 is probably where most respected basketball analysts will have him. Hanging on after that Achilles tear isn’t helping perception.

        A lot of revisionist history about who led that 3-peat out there, but there’s little argument that Shaq’s numbers were ridiculous during that peak. Peak-for-peak, Shaq could be considered one of the best ever. Kobe won the longevity battle, last 3 years notwithstanding.

        What’s funny are the superkobetards unequivocally proclaiming him the hands-down GOAT, when outside that small, vocal minority, no one thinks it’s even close. That’s a blight on Lakers fans everywhere.

          Name one player in NBA history who mastered every aspect of the game as well as Kobe. You can’t. Calling Lakers fans “kobetards” automatically eliminates you from being a real Lakers fan. You make me sick.

              Oh wow DJ, tell us again how you’re a fan for 50 years.

              Tell me where exactly I knocked Kobe as a player? I think he’s an all-time great. He hung on too long, took up too much of the cap, and now the inept FO thinks trotting out his rotting corpse somehow makes up for putting together an altogether atrocious team.

            Michael, Magic, Hakeem, Oscar, probably Larry too. I got Kobe in my top 5 for the record, ahead of Bird.

            Cheering for this team to keep sucking just to capitulate to one over-the-hill former great and preaching some misguided patience eliminates from any sort of rational argument so keep on trolling on.

              You must not really read all my blogs. Mick and Jete hung ontoo long, but never heard a Yankee fan wanting to ki ck them out the door and more importantly I don’t believe I mention any Bloggers name.

              No Salary Cap in baseball, DJ. That’s really the big difference. NFL and NBA have to show old-timers the door if they won’t take a paycut. Let someone else pay for the decline.

              There was no major downside to paying Jete. Mick’s era was completely different. The blogs you read must be more homer-centric than this one.

          The thing that I definitely agreed with Scal on was him asking who would u choose between he and Shaq to start to build ur franchise around? A peak Shaq or a peak Kobe? For me, that’s a no-brainer … it’s Shaq, hands down.

        GDUB, do you know how many Hall of Famers Bill Russell played with every year? In the skinny year, three more besides him. So I guess Bill would have been a better than average player without being constantly surrounded by 3-6 Famers.

      A glimmer of hope for the haters, Better hope Kobe doesn’t find his stroke for the remainder of the season, because, if he does start lighting it up, and the team moves up the standings considerably -- he will be back.

        Exactly how I feel Bay. My feelings towards Kobe as a life long Lakerholic whom grew as an adult as he did (same age) can now reflect on the joy he’s added to my life. I’m now at peace with him shooting 30+ shots in hope that there is one more 50 point game left. [Partly because I’m on the tank train :)] Now I can appreciate all he has left that he too has come to the realization and peace of mind that he is now on his farewell tour.

        Thanks Kobe for 20 years of excellence

    Zach Lowe with his usual astute take on 28 teams in the association coupled with his overly optimistic views of the Celtics and backhanded snark on the Lakers. Pretty spot on in general:

    “Los Angeles Lakers: The Lakers probably deserve to be in the above category. Over the past few years, they lavished Kobe Bryant with an absurd extension; lost Howard and Pau Gasol for nothing; squabbled publicly on the precise timeline by which Jim Buss might step down; cycled through four coaches of wildly varying philosophies; botched their meeting with Aldridge; mounted an embarrassing public relations campaign to prove they have an analytics department; and signed Jordan Clarkson to only a two-year contract when they had the muscle and cap flexibility to push for a longer deal.

    But Clarkson was a great pick at no. 46 and he’ll be a restricted free agent this summer with a tiny cap hold.13 Julius Randle looks feisty, and league observers generally applauded L.A. for taking D’Angelo Russell at no. 2. Keep an eye on Larry Nance Jr. A Lakers team with blue-chip youngsters and mega cap room is a dangerous animal. The Lakers, somehow, might be on a path to somewhere. They are like the lost camper who wanders blindly through the forest, accidentally drops a cigarette, burns the whole forest down, and sees their destination twinkling in the distance.

    Or maybe it’s just a mirage.”

      Zach has a great way with words but what the Lakers see is not a mirage. It’s just the dust from the last few seasons settling so the Lakers can see the future clearly. And what they see are three potential future stars along with a corps of promising role players that fit together well and have the skill sets needed to play the modern pace-and-space NBA game. Like Zach said, “A Lakers team with blue-chip youngsters and mega cap room is a dangerous animal.”

      ” lost Howard and Pau Gasol for nothing”…..Dwight, I didn’t want him anyway, healthy or not, Pau….big mistake to let him go, and in both cases to get nothing in return. Not good.
