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.

lol @ LRD

Kobe is on a tear for the worst...sorry to say. he is forcing his way to get his shots/points every night and not caring who get's involved. such selfishness, and perfectly exemplifies their record right now.

I know Kobe feels he's the Lakers last saving hope at a mediocre season, but he's doing more damage than any good. we know the team isn't playoff caliber, at all, but to disregard the remaining players to get yours is downright pathetic on his part. so much so, everyone is calling him out

Quote:
"I'd rather not have to do that," Bryant said, "but you can't just sit back and watch crime happen in front of you."

Scott described the Lakers' Bryant-heavy offense as a "double-edged sword."

"We've got to find that happy medium," he added.

Practically speaking, can a team function when one player is taking so many shots?

"We can function," Scott said. "I don't know how well we'll function. Like I said, it's a happy medium between that and we've just got to find a happy medium."

On Time Warner Cable's postgame show, former Lakers Robert Horry and James Worthy, both analysts, questioned Bryant's shooting.

"I listen to, really, what Jeremy Lin says," Worthy said. "I know Kobe is frustrated, and I know Kobe is going to do what he has to do in his own mind -- as he said, keep the team involved.

"But when I hear 'lack of communication and trust' from Jeremy Lin, that makes me wonder if everyone is in sync. It doesn't seem to be because the defense is not showing us that they're connected."

Horry agreed.

"Right now, there is no flow with this team," Horry said. "It's Kobe this, Kobe that, and you can see the frustration in the other guys. Jeremy Lin stated it. Boozer stated it in the interviews that there's some lack of trust going on and they want to be more involved in the team effort to win ballgames."

The team has looked good in spots, coming close to winning some games.

"There have been times," Horry said. "And if you go back and look at those times, you look at the shots taken -- the ball was shared. And then you look at when they're frustrated, and there's one individual with more shots than the others."

It's only mid-November, but everything is happening at an historic rate, and not in a good way for these Lakers. And at some point, perhaps soon, that's all these Lakers may have to play for -- not being on the wrong side of history, in the worst section of the record books.

No, they don't and, while I have really lost interest in the NBA, I will not ever go to another NBA team. I am a Laker fan or not a fan of the game. Sadly, lately, it's the latter. I hate a lot of the rule changes. I can't believe Joey Crawford still has a job. I don't mean to say he's done anything to affect the Lakers, but he is a horrible referee.

One of my former hockey teammates is a Clipper fan and has been boisterous. On his facebook deal, I said, "win something and then talk." I am the *** hole now for pointing out the Clippers are still the only team in that building that hasn't won ish.
