Who was out there that could and would have signed that would have had a material impact? Sign a bunch of mid level guys to just miss the playoffs? What is the point in that? I like what actually happened better. We have 3 young players with potential and hopefully if the ping pong balls go our way a top 3 pick this year. Plenty of cap room going forward to hopefully land a KD and/or RW type player in the next couple of years.quote:Originally posted by wine+art:quote:Originally posted by g-man:quote:Originally posted by GlennK:
The front office decisions are to blame for the quick decline in the Lakers.
umm isn't the front office decisions always the blame whenever a team fails?
In the history of sports has there ever been a failed front office decision that lead to a dynasty?
so tell me
what is kobe's win shares per $ spent the last 3 years he played.... Worst in the league.
considering he took up a massive 30+% of the teams cap space.... While other stars late in their career elected to take a 1/3 of what they could have to help their team compete.
i'd call that dragging down the team.... Without debate. The Lakers played better with him on the bench.
numbers dont lie =)
well to start
you would have gotten CP3
