No offense to all those posting, but can we please have a MOD move all this non-sense to our misc thread. I like reading people's thoughts on trade ideas. Not so much into this whole immature stuff. Not that there can't be comradory, but leave that stuff in the thread it belongs please.
llullz yea KB-Pau-DH stop being so immature.
I think this yr, we have no choice but to be patient. Ultimately, I do not think that trading Pau will all of a sudden make us the best team in the league, so we have to work at it with all the pieces we have right now to get to the mountaintop. Easier said than done, but what else can you do? These guys have to put in the work to deserve to be champions.
A lot of people have to understand that we can't just build off the 2009 and 2010 titles. That era is done and over with. We're basically starting off from scratch, except at the helm of this young process, we have a 5X champion who needs to find that leadership to create a new era of Lakers basketball.
He was able to mold that culture (after SHaq) left when everyone thought there was no chance of getting back to the mountaintop, but we did.
Now we have to adjust and re-mold another culture with Phil and all the triangle gurus gone.
Essentially, we're starting from scratch, but the journey back to the mountaintop in my estimation will be quicker as we have several guys who are really itching to get that 1st ring.
Now, if Coach Brown "known as a defensive guru" couldn't get these guy to play close to adequate transition defense after 1 season + 1 1/2 months, then we need to give someone like D'Antoni a break and hope that our veteran players understand that our championship will be won on the defensive end.
No trade etc. will fix that mentality.
