    Jerry West didn't draft Bynum and Marc Gasol..nor did West trade for Pau Gasol/Dwight/Paul, sign Artest, trade Shaq and rebuild, hoist the '09 and '10 titles, etc.

    You're right.

    He only built an 80's dynasty that won 5 titles and rebuilt another that won three in a row at the turn of the century.

    Yep. EIGHT rings.


    Mitch rebuilt with Dr. Buss for two more.





    Jim Busst needs to build legos. If he can somehow figure that out.

    yes, but again..West didn't draft Bynum and Marc Gasol..nor did West trade for Pau Gasol/Dwight/Paul, sign Artest, trade Shaq and rebuild, hoist the '09 and '10 titles, etc.

    see the difference? you're talkin about 20 year old shit and i'm talkin about recent success from 5 years ago.



    actually Jim Buss has been in his current role since 2005..when he drafted Andrew Bynum. Dr. Buss moved into the background after he convinced Kobe to re-sign, so yeah..Mitch and Jim rebuilt the Lakers for two more. West was gone and Dr. Buss had stepped back.

    We have to stop living in the past, this is the NBA where winning titles means more than money because they make a ton either way nor is loyalty IMHO.

    28 years old, fairly productive, relatively healthy 7'2" rim protector that makes his free throws at a 82% clip..sign me up. he'll have his shitty games and piss everybody off every so often, but he's a good filler at the least. i don't think Hibbert hinders tank-mode much either, so win-win. Lol here's hoping they get a 1st rounder for taking Hibbert like they did with Lin.

    I have a terrible feeling we're going to be mediocre next year. Bad enough because of the West, but not bad enough to land top three.

    Hope I'm wrong, but I can see us getting number four. The basketball draft gods were kind to us this year.

    Adrian Wojnarowski ‏@WojYahooNBA 4m4 minutes ago
    Yahoo Sources: Pacers finalizing terms on a trade to send center Roy Hibbert to the Lakers. Hibbert's been informed he's headed to Lakers.




    4.7M in space left. probably should sign another big man. Amare or Jason Smith perhaps..floor spacing PFs

    So
    C Hibbert/Black/Upshaw/Sacre
    PF Randle/Kelly/Nance Jr
    SF A. Brown
    SG Kobe/SpazzyP/J.Brown
    PG Russell/Clarkson
    Definite need for a SF or two and someone who can play PF/C

    seriously? Nice signing. there goes all the cap room though. Renounce everyone and we'll have a 2.8 million dollar room exception and vet minimum spots to fill out the roster.

    I like the pickup, we still won't make the playoffs but we may just be respectable enough for a big time free agent to sign with us soon.

    Continue to upgrade to make the product more attractive for future FA's.

    We most likely won't make the playoffs next year but the games should be fun to watch.

    3 years 21 million, very reasonable.
