I'm still bitter over this. Thanks for NOTHING, Stern.

Truth. My boy was excited thinking we had a real chance to get Melo but even that wouldn't have been ideal. He can score for sure but plays phantom D. No shot at getting Kevin Love, no big marquee name for KB to pass the torch to... ...it's not looking pretty at all.

Joey-E's back!!! had a bit of a hiatus there

Lakers' are out of it until the 2016 FA when Durant, James, etc are all available again (2015 for James if he opts-out). the Kobe contract is good as a business move for tickets, but it kills any gain on the court for them. he just eats away too much.

I'd be surprised for them to make the playoffs...West is pretty dominant:

Spurs
Thunder
Clippers
Blazers
Warriors
Rockets
Grizzlies
Mavs

Dark horses with the Suns, Pelicans, Nuggets...as you said, definitely a LONG season

it was costing the other 29 owners a total of $60+ million if that trade went through, something the majority were unwilling to do. can hate Stern as much as you want but it was the correct decision made.

Sadly, in the East, Lakers would be a comfortable playoff seed next year but this is the lick you take when you've been SO successful for so many long TENURES. I would trade a Kobe who is basically a 2-year rental then retiring Kobe, to a contending team and see if he can get a ring or two to make his comparison with the greats not named Michael Jordan a little more static not to mention Kobe walks off in style. Kobe is not tradeable cause of his mentality in playing style, imo. The benefit of cutting Kobe loose is it allows you to GROW quicker and start a young and now experienced Jeremy Lin who is a great chemistry fit with Nick Young and still get the same if not more production as a team then what a 1 dimensional Kobe can properly bring. Keep in mind, Lin drops 30-40 when he gets to do a little of everything and control the tempo more versus playing with a ball dominant guard like he did in Houston with Harden where he just stands in a corner and watches. Cutting Kobe loose would be the best use of the Lakers overall talent plus it would allow Kobe to snag a ring or two, in the process but too much dusted ego is involved in LA, their fans and whole kit-n-caboodle. Keeping Kobe will just stall their growth for 2 long years keeping their young talent from growing properly into the high octane, up and down offense they need to be in order to be successful.

Thots?
well LAL believes that they owe Kobe this contract for his tenure, so to see him go anywhere is a hard sell from the LAL front office but I don't discount it when the season gets underway. Kobe doesn't like losing and to be on a team that will more than likely miss the playoff's in his two remaining seasons won't sit well and I wouldn't be surprised if Kobe demands a trade. Kinda along the same lines you're hinting at.

I do agree that they should be in rebuild mode...had Kobe not taken the huge contract, I believe Melo would have landed in LAL and been able to keep Pau and still fill a contending roster going forward for at least the next couple seasons. but it all comes back to that contract, it put a big dent in the Lakers' plans...if there was any, really...as that contract made only business sense and not much bball sense.
