    Suppose...

    The Lakers land neither Melo or Lebron. Wouldn't it be rather embarrassing for the organization to once again come away with nothing significant in terms of top tier available talent? Time and time again in times past, the Lakers was the preferred destination for many(top) players. Whether it be via trade or signing as a free agent

    But it seems as though we've fallen drastically as far as guys having that "Get me to LA no matter what it takes" type attitude. Now, I am in NO WAY blaming any one person-- However, I truly wonder what is Kobe saying to these guys? Is he still on that he eat first crap??? Lol...I mean like really! What does his pitch include? Was Dr. Buss THAT instrumental, so much to the point that these other people are completely clueless???

    Ive heard several times Kobe has wanted this person with the Lakers. Or that person. They say Kobe's been recruiting Melo for some time now and I be like damn, is this dude or Chaz or Mitch or anybody capable of closing a deal? I understand completely certain things take time...

    But the Lakers take forever doing everything nowadays. Its been 2 consecutive trade deadlines they were "close" to landing Beasley. Now I know he's been a disappointment for the most part. But my goodness, we couldn't even get HIM by the deadline? Why wait so long to try and make a deal anyway?

    I forreal hope we sign atleast ONE of those bastards. Because if that we're going after Chandler Parsons thing is suppose to place the league on notice...smh...my how our Lakers have fallen...

    A great owner died, The teams superstar is at his end, all of this we are seeing now was imminent.

    It's time to start from scratch and it is unknown if the current owner(s) is even capable. Time will tell and we're at a point where it could go either way. Jimbo proves he's worthy or things get so bad the Buss family is forced to sell.

    We have to build a team and adding one of them right now will not bring us championships unfortunately. Plus,other teams look more attractive than us and can offer better deals to them.
    So,I won't be sad if they don't land any of them.
    Lakers are still in the middle of the storm,I think our FO have not clear ideas on what to do after Howard+Nash's fiasco and last year's shitstorm.
    Now they just decided to start from Kobe again,giving him a too good contract to prserve his happiness and protect Lakers profits.
    On the bright side,we landed a good player in the draft imo,idk if he'll ever be a star,but I have high expectations for him.
    Right now we need first an idendity and that has to be obtained giving trust to a solid head coach,plus helping him hiring assistants that knows how to do certain things(aka defense),unless we hire a defense specialist.
    Then,we have to be active on free agency,damn! A lot of good role players are hired by a lot of teams that are building like us. And we need too. Melo or Lebron want to win rings in these next years and they won't wait us just because we have a long and glorious history in this league.
    We need players that want to play for the Lakers and when we reach a good level of chemistry we'll add star players. But first,we need to look "attractive" and that means HC,assistants and players that give the idea of stability and will to compete.

    I don't think anyone expects them to land Lebron James, that's a given. He's going to end up staying in Miami with Wade and Bosh. As far as Melo is concerned, they have a good chance of getting him. They just met with him on Thursday and it's now Saturday. Let's see what unfolds within the next few wks... If they fail to get him, I don't see it as necessarily a failure because Melo is a NYC guy. I think his heart is in NY. The lakers may be able to entice him as la is similar to New York in terms of marketing and the lakers have a much better track record of winning titles than the Knicks.

    Sometimes I think ESPN hires employees to start threads.

    I'll preface by saying that I read the first two sentences of the OP. The world isn't ending, Zombies aren't attacking civilians, and the Laker franchise isn't going to fall apart. ESPN hyperbolizes (sp?) every transitional period, and makes it seem like the Lakers will never win again. The Lakers brass will figure it out, they always do (with or without Jerry).

    Lol dude I'm not at all hittin the panic button. Its merely something I thought worth discussing thats all. I didnt say management couldn't get things going again. For some reason or another, it seems the transition is more difficult than I thought it would be. I mean my goodness it wasnt that long ago when we won back to back and played IMO a gutsy series vs the thunder and could have very well won had we not blown 2 of those games
