They seem pretty fixated on landing a big free agent.  In my opinion that is the wrong way to go.  They need to start drafting the right people and stop bringing bums in on the cheap and then letting them walk right away.  Even if you have a roster of bums, let them play together for a few years so they have a chance to grow together as a team.  One year, bargain basement mercenaries are killing us.  Clearing all this cap space, for who exactly?

Overall, I agree.  I think the challenge in building through the draft is that a successful team will always be drafting at the bottom of the first round.  That doesn't mean they cannot draft good players, but it does make it harder to find that superstar talent.  Have to get lucky.  What they shouldn't be doing is repeatedly giving away their first round picks.   

I'm not sure who Kobe's replacement will be.  Might be in for another long stretch of mediocrity. 

One thing they absolutely need to do is remove Jim Buss from making basketball personnel and coaching decisions.

I feel like they did a good job with last years roster.  Guys like Swaggy P, Xavier Henry and Wesley Johnson can all play.  Marshon Brooks wasn't bad.  Young talent.  The injury bug bit them and they had, in my opinion, a bad coach.  He was constantly tinkering with the depth chart even with the guys that weren't hurt.  Nobody knew their role so they all just played for themselves.  Lets let some of them play together  for a while under a competent coach that will have them play a little defense and see how they develop.

So far our roster is very small for this coming year.  Our Center is 6/10 and power forwards are 6'9.  We need a 7 footer that can defend.  I would have thrown some money at Tyson Chandler but they couldn't because they were praying Carmelo would come to LA.  Most rational people knew that was a pipe dream.

Oh I see.  You mean five-time champion Kobe aka the Black Mamba?  You can cry all you want about him and the false rape allegation, but he's a champion.  A winner.  Maybe LeCramp will get five rings in his career too, but probably not. 

Did Rapelesberger rehabilitate himself yet?  I haven't seen his name on the police blotter lately. 

Skip Bayless if funny.  He also called LeCramp the Frozen One (before he won two rings).  Hilarious.  And he knows his stuff.  I don't agree with everything he (or Stephen A. Smith) say, but they are very well connected, knowledgeable, smart, honest, etc.  But I do think their show is going a little too Hollywood for my tastes.  Too many actor and non-athlete guests. 

Memories . . . . Smiley

lebron would be 7 time champion if he played with prime shaq, the true leader of that 3 peat

nobody wants to play with kobe the rapist, as proven this offseason he's a scumbag in so many ways

can you provide an arrest record for ben please?  good luck finding something that doesn't exist, and it's even more hypocritical of you considering aldon smith and your qb was accused of rape this offseason, maybe think before you post in an argument you can't win

skip calling him lecramp and the frozen one aren't the slightlest bit witty, i don't hate skip but that is very weak trolling on his part

so you have good memories of a block in an all star game??  i guess that's all laker fans have left and will have for awhile

hahah he will be a contender for defensive rookie of the year, the only person I would have taken over him was bortles but thats ok.

Whats the over/under on the number of games rapesy makes it through this season? 9/10?

last year he played through his 2nd full length season

i think he makes it 13 games this year, based on his injury history

I'm a little upset that I have to root for Boozer now.  I have disliked him ever since he scammed his way out of Cleveland years ago.

LeCramp has two rings that he only won because he had to link up with two other star players. 

Kobe has five rings, including two without Shaq.  Those are the facts.  You can drink the hateraide all you want, but you cannot change history. 

And yes, I do think the nicknames Skip Bayless gave LeCramp are hilarious. 

Does this make you sad?   Grin

As great as Kobe was, he had a great team also!  You think he didn't need 2 - 7fts? allstar Gasol or Bynum or sixth man of the year Odom?  Look at his stats before he got hurt, he was playing at an incredible level, but his team sucked and how far has he gotten?  Who was the best player LeBron/Lecramp/Lewhatever played with?  Mo Williams?  If LBJ had that team I believe he would have won also.  He went to Miami because Pat Riley did what the Cavs wouldn't do, get players!

Bynum didn't play at all in the 2008 or 2009 finals and was injured and barely played in 2010.  Lamar was 6th man of the year in 2011, a year in which the team did not go to the finals.  As good as Odom was, you never knew what you were going to get from him on any given night.  Very streaky and not good in the Triangle offense as Phil Jasckson has said.  Kobe's first three rings were basically him and Shaq and the last two was basically him and Gasol.

I haven't watched a lot of Boozer but what I have seen and heard I don't like.  At least we aren't paying through the nose for him like Chicago did.   He's not costing us much at all.  We really need Randle and Clarkson to play well.  I hope those two pan out.

His offensive game is good.  Defense sucks.  I don't fault LA for getting him at that price.  Not sure how they will handle the rotation at the 4 with him and Randle.

here are the real facts

lebron won titles with two other stars, as did every other player that won a title whether it was michael, magic, larry, duncan, garnett, etc

yes kobe won two titles without shaq, he replaced shaq with pau gasol, kobe also missed the playoffs without another star player while lebron led the cavs to the finals and the best record in  the league without help

those are the facts, it's only "haterade" to you because kobe is your boy, too bad you aren't an nba star because you would be the only one willing to play with him at this point Grin

kobe should thank god daily for being traded to the lakers, if he stuck with the hornets he would basically be tracy mcgrady

I take nothing BB wise away from Kobe, he took over for MJ, and has played hard every game. But without another star or 2, he has won nothing. The Lakers have always been one of the top organizations, the Cavs were garbage before LBJ got there and after he left.
