funny thing is, if he'd just let the front office do their job, he'd probably get redemption for the Rudy T hire and be considered a good owner.


if he just did NOTHING.   :laugh:  this guy has no intuition, common sense, or knowledge of the game.


remember about his scouting statement? "get any 5 guys out of a bar and they can scout as much as professionals"


a damn straight lie, i never met anyone that i can have a intelligent basketball conversation with. whether if its regarding contracts, foot work, post games, court vision, etc etc.


most people dont know absolute shit.

The other mistake I forgot to add was not trying to smooth out the Chris Paul Trade. Instead, he just let it die. David Stern did what the rest of the NBA owners, who he works for, told him to do. Jimmy should've got on the phone, like his dad would've, and spoke to the Dan Gilbert's, the Mark Cuban's and try to make the situation right.

Ultimately, dude is struggling to live in his dad's shadow. He's trying to "prove" that he's his own man. It's not working out. Every major move that has happened with the team, with Jim at the head of the table, has been terrible. Until he changes his ways or the team let's Jeenie (and by proxy Phil Jackson) run the team, this is the path the team will continue on.


i guess we'll fall like the romans and the targaryens

that veto cost us another dynasty, straight up


duno if it was mitch or not, but it was under jim's watch...I think that veto was the turning point in jim losing his confidence as an owner


david stern fucked us






a couple good picks in the draft this year can erase that...

See, a sign and trade with Howard would have gotten picks this year. Man, Mitch fucked that up, he should have signed and traded Howard for picks now.

all them links say nothing of dwight wanting or agreeing to a sign and trade...he has no incentive.

Nor did anything say he DIDN'T want a sign and trade, but those links point to the Lakers NOT wanting to do a sign and trade. And they did mention the incentive, one extra year and $30 million extra in the overall deal. But even if he wanted a sign and trade to get the extra money, the Lakers were saying no. Now in one of the deepest drafts, it looks like that was a mistake as the Lakers could use a few picks.

the priority was to sign him, we knew there wasn't gunna be a sign and trade.



Better for the Lakers to get something for Howard instead of letting him leave for nothing, right? Not really.

Let’s be real. If Howard leaves while Kobe Bryant is in the early stages of his comeback from a torn Achilles tendon, the Lakers have no chance to win a championship next season.

That wouldn’t change if they accepted a sign-and-trade deal that sent every player on the Mavs’ roster not named Nowitzki to Los Angeles. All that would do is prevent the Lakers from avoiding a massive luxury tax bill.

If the Lakers added Shawn Marion, Vince Carter and Mavs filler to a roster that features rehabbing Kobe, ancient Steve Nash and Pau Gasol, they’d be fighting just for a shot to sneak into the playoffs again while paying a luxury-tax bill in the neighborhood of $28 million, assuming they’d use the amnesty clause on Metta World Peace.

What about that would possibly appeal to L.A.?

If Howard leaves, the Lakers might as well unofficially tank the season. They could avoid the luxury tax altogether by using the amnesty clause on Gasol. Kobe could take his sweet time with his comeback.

In this scenario, the Lakers could be looking at a high lottery pick in a loaded 2014 draft, when they’ll also have a ton of cap space. Why would they want to end up with a middle-of-the-road pick after putting together a mediocre team with a nine-figure price tag?



and lets be real, no one was trading away lottery picks in this years draft...we're gunna get a high pick now because we DIDNT sign-and-trade. but it wasnt happenin on either side.

But what was shown is that whoevernhas Howard isn't making the lotto. You get a couple of washed up players, J. Lin and first round draft picks from now until 3 years down then road and you can rebuild. Or have other teams draft picks in there. Fact is, every high superstar pick the Lakers have made have been other people's draft pick. Mitch botched this situation.

Hum... in June he asked for a sign and trade so he could get more money.

Dude, your talking out both sides of your mouth. You're like, Lakers should sign and trade Howard, well Howard didn't want a sign and trade. Fact is Howard wanted a sign and trade at first, then Lakers refused, then when they realized Howard was leaving Howard refused because he just wanted to be done with LA. It was dumb on the Lakers part and the biggest mistake in the Mitch era. Though I mainly blame Jimmy Buss because I am sure Mitch knew the right move to make, he was just taking orders. The Lakers have NEVER missed the playoffs 2 years in a row in franchise history. With Jimmy still running the team, I am very worried about that.

I don't remember anything about him wanting a sign-n-trade...and there was more money to be made by signing with Houston, because of the tax laws. either way, he was leading us on and making us think theres a chance he'd stay for some time..the sign-n-trade was always pipe dream.


things are quietly goin good for us right now....everyone comes off the books in the summer, we found a potential point guard for the future in kendall marshall, kobe fractured his knee, allowing more time for the Achilles to rest, enough money to sign two max-level players this coming offseason, a probable top 5 pick comin our way.......the odds are in our favor. if we play our cards right, we'll be killin the game again by next year.

Okay... I'm not so sure...

Lots of contracts come off the books, but Kobe is signed for too much, we need luck to get into the top 3 and the Lakers are about to lose 7 in a row at home, plus they don't look ready to compete next year... this is NOT good. Unless they can make a trade for Love.

And the sign and trade was not a pipe dream. There was lots of options, Dwight wanted it, Houston was ready to give it, and the Lakers tried to act tough at first. It was a misjudgment about how LA has never lost a big name free agent. It was a slap in the face, and I truly hope the organization realizes that it will take more than Gold and Forum Blue uniforms to regain their mojo. I want to see #17 and #18 in the next few years. I can't stand Boston being on top. And this could have been avoided had the Lakers sucked it up and talked to Houston in June instead of trying to push something last minute.

We are not good right now. Marshall, cool, Nick Young, cool, but these are not starters for a championship level team. At best these are role players. I wouldn't be convinced the Lakers are back unless I see some real talent on the roster under the age of 27.

I want Jimmy to stop running the team, let Jeanie and Phil handle that, get some young talent under 27 ready for prime time and an exciting brand of basketball that I don't feel bored watching. Hell I'd take a team like the early 90's with Van Exel, Jones, Cedric, Campbell and Vlade. It takes time to build a championship team, even Shaq and Kobe needed 4 years. But make the product watchable, even if you are going to lose. At least when they lost after. Shaq left the team had a young Kobe. Right now, I take time to watch the game, and it sucks. I have never felt this way as a fan. And if they had more draft picks, at least I'd feel better about the future.
