Didn't he say the same exact thing about Mike Brown and then fire him 1 day later?
Bring Back the Zen Master.
dudes what did you expect him to say?
" yes, dantoni is a son of a ***** and im actually firing him right now, here , give me the mic, mike you are fired!"
then what else , o yeah " since i already have the mic, lets send a message to gms on the league, im desperate, i want to trade you pau for all your talent, come on...dont be *****y , you know, im supermitch and even tough im telling you how desperate i am i hope you be nice dudes adn dont low ball me"
What drugs is the Lakers front office doing?
Then what is the problem Mitch?
Either die a hero or the villian is what you become.
I sometimes think that what people expect will happen.
What they do not see is that if he says that all players loose they value.
I actually like what he said. It might be too late, true that. But I read it and thought to myself that Mitch is planning something bigger than for example just signing K. Martin.
Plus closer to the trade deadline players have a higher value. For example Brooklyn knows they will make play-offs. They also know they will not get to finals. So they will want to bring someone who will change that.
He said correctly that no bench player will change where they are now. So therefore a starter is needed.
We lack energy so thats what we will be looking for high energy guy.
IMO there is two options we either trade Pau for someone who will make sure D12 stays in Lakers, like J. Smith.
OR we trade D12 for someone for future example K. Love
don't buy... he'll make a move.. but not sure if a major move..
Should Mitch get fired? I mean if we had Jerry West we would not be in this. From years back West said Pau and Bynum was not going to work. He also said that Lakers were to long in the tooth. Well Mitch did the opposite. We add older players and got longer in the tooth. He hired a coach for the oldest player on the team and he is still trying to play two centers.
Good. Dont make a trade. We are the laughing stock of the league anyway. Nobody wants to be a laker anymore, now the clippers.... lmao. I say let these old, heartless, crying ***** b****es miss the playoffs and lets try to get the draft lotto. Thats gonna b the highlight of their season anyway!
If u want to be real.
If it were Pat Riley, he would have taken over and fired D'Antoni.
