Forget Houston. Our L.A. Lakers have a problem. A double-pronged problem. Jimmy Buss and Mike D'Antoni. Two losers who have sold the farm to hold on to their egotistical pipe dreams of doing things their way. Holding on to a coach that has never won jack, and snubbing the winningest coach in history, was a huge mistake. Especially given all the circumstances of a roster that was ill-suited for his offensive vision (that never succeeded in the first place). All the lies and misdirections given saying that this is what Dr. Jerry Buss "wanted and envisioned for the team", "we....

I agree .... When has a GM or a coach or cap space or draft picks ever help win a championship?? The players do the work ... Do you really think after this any big time free agents want to come play for a loser coach who hasn't proven ****??? A GM who hasn't done **** ?? He just took 5 steps back after almost getting Chris Paul and Howard on this LA team with Phil Jackson it would have been over....

The best move this offseason will be for Jeanie Buss and the rest of the Buss kids to unseat Jimmy boy, and put in Phil Jackson as President of Basketball Operations. Probably won't happen, I know Jerry wanted Jim in charge, but for the sake of Laker fans, it would make them forget all about Dwight Howard.

I'm glad dwight is gone but we are a mess!! Dantoni will unfortunately be given a chance for at least a year, then its on. Oh they're gonna come, trust me. Lakers did not TRULY believe in dwight, if the had they would have fired dantoni this summer to keep him. as DISGUSTED as I am with busss, I refuse to believe that he is this freaking stupid....I will wait and see what we end up with.

I'm more disappointed with the fact that we could have had barnes on this team but oh well.

he is that, but he had other kids he could've appointed that position, and he chose jim. dr buss is the sole reason jimmy is running the basketball side of the franchise.

An old man who loved his son and knew that he could not take his team with him when he left us.

In addition, Jerry Buss was so estute that he surely knew that his legacy would look absolutely fantastic if the person who replaced him was a total boob.

Had to repp the Original Poster of this thread. Your comments were right on. The Lakers Board of Directors should sit down and make a decision - Jimmy Boy or the franchise. You have 15 seconds to make a decision, and if it takes you more than 2 seconds, you must forfeit half of your shares in the team. Sounds fair to me!

Cap Space? Forgetting about the Heat?

Again, dr buss has other kids but specifically appointed jim the basketball side of the franchise. People blame jim, but your assessment is the "downfall" of the lakers is really dr buss's fault and his dying wish was for the lakers to be terrible so he could look good.... dang dr buss.

I personally don't see jim as the problem or he's the downfall of the lakers, but if we're blaming anyone, you're right, dr buss is sole person responsible.

what in the world are they thinking? It is an honest mistake to have the wrong coach for the whole season but taking him back and present it to your future franchise players and just sit there and say nothing?

Let's be real....D'Antoni did not want Howard here. He did not want to change his way of playing inside. Let's face it Houston runs almost the same offense, the difference....is that McHale is willing to incorporate post ups and is willing to feed Howard. That of course is my opinion. On that note I am going to bed...goodnight LTB!!!!!

we are in the same place the heat were when they got lebron. We have a star who will resign on the cheap to be teamed with two other stars we get with a crazy amount of cap space. No guarantees on who the star will be but the team will be a contender.

So those saying who cares about cap space and lottery picks and that they don't win championships should look to the heat or the countless other teams that don't make crazy trades but build from the draft. we are in this position now because we don't value cap space or picks.

Exactly!!! Their guards Wade, Cole and Chalmers were all draft picks. Cole and Chalmers were low picks and have played great roles in the Heat winning championships. I don't get how some fans think just mashing together a team is going to produce a championship. Miami was savvy in getting the right vets to come here, but has some young players that has developed into good players. Forgot to mention Haslem...he wasn't drafted, but they took a chance on him, developed him and he has been a catalyst in Miami's winning ways. That is one way for a team to build.

we are actually in this position because of the new cba and the league vetoed the chris paul trade. but I get the gist of what you are saying and can agree. gotta make smarter decisions with the picks and spend wisely.

I'm not happy that Dwight departed but I'm really excited about the Summer of 2014.
