Don't slain me for this or grill me for it's irrelevance but this could for some offer hope in our future for others just repeat the obvious. This may not be a huge shocker or breaking news but it's an insight as to how the whole Dwight situation panned out. Maybe this is the reason why our team is in such turmoil and offer hope for when Kobe leaves. I'm a Kobe fan but a lakers fan first.
Basically when Kobe told Dwight he was staying longer than his original plan and Dwight knew he wasn't going to be the pure face of the franchise he opted to leave. I don't miss Dwight, I really don't but the relevance with this article is the fact that this may be the reason why we have been striking out so much.
I'm glad I'm seeing these short term contracts that expire alongside Kobe's, it generates optimism for what of recent has been a front office impotence. I have hope, and hopefully you all will eventually have hope too.
