    LOL, why in the world is that the only alternative? What I would rather is for management to do their job and actually build a contender piece by piece instead of rehashing the horrible idea that was...
  2. I can't believe we are back here again,...

    I can't believe we are back here again, pretending last year didn't happen, when tanking was awesome because it was the deepest class in forever. Then came reality and Jordan Clarkson, chosen in the...

    No one should be surprised that there were no moves made. Stop being myopic and pretending that this is not the plan: keep financial flexibility at all cost until a big name free agent signs with the...

    Yeah, they tank for those guys and then end up with Randle. My example is perfect.

    Just like we are finding out about the whole 2014 NBA draft class, Randle is nothing spacial. Like I said months ago, if he gets to be as good as Millsap, consider it a victory. This should have...

    This is what is frustrating about watching people constantly suggest that the Lakers trade for picks. The Lakers are horrible at drafting, specially with late picks. The best pick they have made...

    Absolutely 100% right. It is the same leap in logic that if we don't get a top 5 pick this year, all is lost, but if we do, everything will be rainbows and unicorns.

    Speaking of "skewing", you do realize that in politics and, to some extent, in sports, people do have a direct impact? However, when someone on this forum says "let's tank", it is childish in the...

    It proves tanking is stupid. It was stupid to cheer for tanking last season, and it is stupid this season. What part of that don't you get?

    And please explain to me what my "way" is. I don't...
  10. Two of my favorite things about all of this...

    Two of my favorite things about all of this tanking discussion:
    1) The childish belief that anyone here has any influence or say on the team deciding to tank. They didn't tank last year, they are...
  11. Poll: I think being on the side of something that will...

    I think being on the side of something that will never happen (tanking) is idiotic. Just as it is idiotic to put up a poll that basically says: "choice A - you believe in what I believe in, or...

    I never said we were exclusively trying to get the first pick. I simply used the example that losing more games (the main part of tanking) does not necessarily create an advantage in the end given...

    LOL, let's all just pretend that tanking works and that last year didn't happen. Let me remind you: A TEAM WITH A BETTER RECORD THAN THE LAKERS GOT THE FIRST OVERALL PICK!!!! The lottery was...

    Wait, so you are telling me the Lakers dominate the league defensively when Kobe is not on the court?

    Watching the game that close, with people who pay good money to see the games, and not with...

    I am at the game and I can't believe anyone would be stupid enough to think that Kobe is the problem in this team. There are so many issues and so many players who seemed to have checked out, and...

    First off, you completely ignored the part where I made the point that NBA owners do lose a lot of money on players that don't pan out. Why did the league institute the rule prohibiting high school...

    There are two sides to every story. The owners do make money but they also risk a lot of money and lose a lot of money. For every Kobe or Durant, there is a player making tons of cash and not...

    If Nick Young can have this kind of effect on the team, imagine if management actually did their job and got a current All-Star to play along side Kobe.

    Blaming any coach for this team is the biggest waste of time in this forum. This team was not put together to win. Just like last year, it was put together to kill time until the front office can...

    All of this is because management, in an effort to appear competent, and with the help of the coaching stuff, have been trying to sell us all on the ridiculous idea that Wesley Johnson can develop...

    Lin and Boozer would be nice additions to the bench of a contending team. They have no business being this crucial to a team, just like Wes Johnson and Sacre have no business being in the NBA.

    The team that won the lottery last season had 6 more wins than the Lakers. Maybe you should be cheering for more wins. LOL

    Why isn't anyone looking at the obvious culprit for all of these injuries? It obviously wasn't D'Antoni. He is no longer here, plus he didn't have so...
