Wouldn't be surprised if this happens given the luck the lakers have had the last few years.. They definitely aren't doing anything this year so minus well go for a top 5 pick

Boozer is such a pain to watch

NFLNBA
10-29-2014, 10:33 PM
I feel so bad for Kobe. He still has a lot of game but he has ZERO talent around him. He is too old to be best player and asked to basically score 80% our pts. This team would get KILLED by the Smush, Kwame team we had. This has to be worst team we have had in.....EVER!? Honestly is this worst team we have ever had? This team will keep it's pick there is no doubt about that. So we will have 2 first round picks because we also have Rockets. That is ONLY positive about this year

KobeOwnSU
10-29-2014, 10:35 PM
Isaiah Thomas would have helped the offense so much. And he wanted to be a Laker...

Question.

Would you want to see Kobe get his 6th ring on another team? He doesn't deserve this.

I would be happy for him to win with another team, after all the great things he did for us, I wouldn't mind.

NFLNBA

This is no doubt the worst team in NBA. We will set a record for maybe not most losses but most losses by 20+ points in a season. We are not even competitive

I would be happy for him to win with another team, after all the great things he did for us, I wouldn't mind.

I was just thinking about this now.. I am 24 yrs old so I really started watching basketball around the time kobe started playing for lakers, he's my fav player ever.. But I think I'd be ok with him getting traded because he doesn't deserve to go out like this.. He deserves to compete for a chip after putting in all the work he's done.. He didn't come back to chase milestones, he came back to chase championships.

NFLNBA
10-29-2014, 10:42 PM
Right!? Randle was only thing besides Kobe keeping me interested to continue to watch our azz beatings just to see him develop. I can't even watch them. It's sickening

NFLNBA
10-29-2014, 10:45 PM
I think we all feel this way. Problem is his contract doesn't give him that option. He is to faithful to this organization as well. It's to bad we can't freeze him for 3 years and then let him play with that squad for his last 2 years. Not this **** team

Yea and really his contract is key to rebuilding this franchise.. When he comes off the books, they can sign a max contract player and a very good role player just with Kobe's contract up.. They have to think about that if it ever comes down to potentially trading him

Hey how do you think boozer looks

NFLNBA
10-29-2014, 10:57 PM
Not only All Kobes money but all Nash, Hill, basically everyone but Swaggy P and Randle. So all the money we can ask for PLUS like I said we are getting our 1st round pick we traded to Sun's and that pick will be top 3 easily. We also have the Rockets 1st rounder. So if we draft well next year we can really start our rebuild nicely.

Only issues are this next draft is supposidly weak AND what free agents are even available worth looking at next year and following? I don't see Durrant leaving OKC.

jaydubb
10-29-2014, 10:57 PM
OK.. I know other people have asked this before, but seriously WHY THE **** IS THE BEST PLAYER ON THE LAKERS A 36 YEAR OLD IN HIS 19TH SEASON?!?

We down 30 yet? I couldn't bare to watch anymore. Is Kobe still playing? It's a back2back I'd sit him. I'd sit him every back2back and just pray next year we can grab another good player, randle improves, and our 2 1st round picks are gems so Kobe can have at least a competitive team his last year

Maybe, but only cause they're in the east. This laker team might be a playoff team in the east. Hell, we could probably put together a team of people from here and be a playoff team in the east. I'm obviously kidding, but the point is being a playoff team in the east isn't much of an accomplishment cause it's such a weak conference.

What are the positives to take out of this game.
1.they got to travel to the beautiful city of Phoenix.
2.they got some good cardio work in
3.they had quality bonding time together.
4. They aren't far from a Waffle House.
5. They sell blue bell ice cream in Phoenix .

What are the positives to take out of this game.
1.they got to travel to the beautiful city of Phoenix.
2.they got some good cardio work in
3.they had quality bonding time together.
4. They aren't far from a Waffle House.
5. They sell blue bell ice cream in Phoenix .

Sounds like I need to visit Phoenix.

You can see Kobe's extremely annoyed.. No way he sits through this whole season like this.. I wouldn't be surprised if he requests a trade later in the season

Why? Part of this crap is on him, I love Kobe and I know Lakers gave him that contract, but still Kobe can't take all this money at 36 and act like it was possible to build a team who can compete.

True.. Part of its on him.. Still I legitimately think he doesn't think that was an issue, that he's worth that money and can take any team to the playoffs but in reality, he's not that kinda player anymore

Isiah thomas 7 mil a year. Lance stephenson 9 mil. Then maybe gasol stays for a discount. Enough with this kobe contract bs. We could have added some good young pieces and at least been competitive. Instead we are one of the worst 5 teams in the league.

Thats the thing though. Stephenson signed 3 years 27 with a team option third year. Thomas 4 years 28 mil. Hes only getting two mil more than young who also got a 4 year deal.

Kobe off the books in 16. Durant there for the taking. If we actually had something for him to come to. Plus we would have at least been competitive in the mean time.

Exactly.. We'd still have a ton of cap space to go after KD because Kobe will be off the books then..

Jayb587
10-30-2014, 12:35 AM
I feel like the FO scammed Kobe into taking that money so they can continue to make money while they tank. That's why they signed him so early before he was able to see that they were bringing no one good in.

Kd is not coming to the lakers. The allure of the lakers is gone. I hope Kobe demands a trade, then the lakers can play for lottery picks like the sixers, and find the next magic and stop pretending they are trying to be good to keep scamming kobe for money.

Yea but he had to think "I'm taking well over 1/3 of the teams salary for the next 2 years, it might be tight to spread the money out".. He coulda even taken 15mill per year and that woulda made a HUGE difference

Well, with Brown and Dantoni (first year) we had talent. Now we don't. Brown and Dantoni sucked. Scott is decent, but we are playing pretty boring and inefficient offensive basketball. It wouldn't be so bad if we could play some defense, but we stink at that too. Bottom line is, this team is headed for the cellar and there isn't much any coach could do about it. They just need to stop spending so much money on coaches, until we have a team that's actually worth spending money for a good coach. It's not going to make a difference with these scrubs.

Quote from Isiah Thomas, pure comedy, trash front office, waiting on a pipe dream


I heard you had a strong interest in signing with the Lakers.

Yeah, I did….

First off, it’s the Los Angeles Lakers. Who wouldn’t want to play for them? Second off, I felt like they always needed a point guard — a small guard like myself. I always envisioned myself playing with the Lakers, but like you said, they were waiting on Carmelo and other moves. The Suns came out of nowhere and showed a lot of interest, and I fell in love with them.
