We all remember the Nadir of a once great franchise. It started with billboards for Dwight Howard and ended with some screwball hollywood pitch for Aldridge that was so sickening and infantile it actually drove him to sign with the Spurs who talked, you know, basketball with him. So now Mitch and Jim are gone and one would hope those great big brains behind those plastic smiles that are forever glued to Magic and Pelinkas faces could actually woo serious players with serious discussions. But no, those two clowns and left over baby doll Jeannie came up with this genius plan to....

I read that so called pitch. To me it sounds more like a welcome card than a pitch. Something they might use for a commercial of sorts if he is signed. That said, who knows, maybe the source wasn’t actually LAL and perhaps it was written by a rival trying to make the Lakers look stupid. I mean, what are they going to do, email it to him? Something just doesn’t add up and I highly doubt this is any sort of a pitch to woo him into signing with the team. He has to make his decision in the next few days (I am sure he already made his decision) and it’s not like we have seen this air on TV or the radio yet and they aren’t sending him Hallmark greeting cards..

This is pathetic. What is next? A resurrection of the Pygmy billboards after the Nets buy out his contract?

Sports Illustrated is a very very reputable outlet of information. They are not like Joe's Blog site. They have sources and check them. They take their reporting and reputation very seriously and have earned the reputation they have over six decades. I believe it.

Baptist,

Anything could be next with this goofy organization and how they view things.

I didn't know it was a poem...

How did I know who authored this post as soon as I saw the title? 😂

SPQR,

Simply brotha I have no words. When I saw that $hit, my first thought was is Mitch and Jim still running the F.O.? Then I thought this has to be April Fool's Day but its June!!!!!.....#ItNeverStops.

Pete,

The idiocy hasn't stopped since the old man lost it. That was a while ago wasn't it?

That script is one of the corniest things I have ever read. Odds are it was leaked, but I’m hoping they put this out there on purpose just to gauge public opinion. If not they still have a ton of learning to do.

The very realistic pessimism. As soon as I read the title I was like, Oh that's interesting.... must be SPQR.

This is to the point of just being embarrassing. Once a Lakers’ FO understands it’s about basketball and move away from the BS like branding, power couples and the two dreams poem over an intercom then maybe we can sign some guys

To me this sounds like a 30 second clip for when he first comes in the room to sit down. PG13 is going to be eating this up. I heard he is having his own 3 episode special about his Free Agency. I don't recall any NBA player not even Lebron having a 3 episode special about his FA. This is what he wants evidently.

Do we even truly know this was a part of a pitch from us? This could of been leaked in a way to make us look bad. I am just saying don't believe everything you hear. Someone who doesn't like us could have made this poem very easily then leaked it to SI and of course it points towards us since we are his biggest suitor.

Ray,

Like I said it depends on the source. I trust Sports Illustrated for good reason. They have been a top dog in sports journalism for over sixty years and have a top flight rep that they earned over that time.

I would say that George's plan to make this a three part video event shows he's ready for Hollywood and his move to the Lakers, lol. Then Lebron should follow suit.

And then I suppose Randle will then depart soon after. Blah.

Why does Randle have to leave us. We are easily capable of making room for PG13 / Lebron and Randle

Any idea when this three part "series" is taking place? This drama is getting old.

Hahahahahahahaaaaaa.....I never heard about that. Too damn funny. And pathetic. Well it's LA. And LA is nothing if not cheesy. The PR game here is everything, AND, crazily enough, a lot of pple here really believe that crap. Greatest place on earth, why would anyone want to live anywhere else...etc. They really do...for real. It's sad really. A lot of pple who don't get out much I guess. Or who prefer sitting in traffic breathing bad air and paying a fortune for a small apt, to a better quality of life, more options, and open minds. This place has changed so much since I moved here, and is so weird right now it's almost surreal. I barely recognize it from lo those many years ago. It really has become a Disneyland version of itself. So, to that end, they deserve to lose the FA sweepstakes now. I hope PG13 stays in OKC where they talk basketball. I hope LBJ decides to stay home. And I hope they don't trade the farm for KL. If they really think you don't need to be an adult and serious and sell the business, vs the childish fantasy. Sheesh. It sounds more like a commercial for Morongo Casino lol. For pple living in a fantasy world who never want to grow up. In other words...Mickey Mouse. They're not ready for the big names. Not ready to take themselves seriously. They already hired one of the youngest coaches in NBA history, who had no previous coaching experience. It's all about the dream. The silly silly dream. It's all about being young forever, coz they're all so afraid of getting old. Weird...just weird. And I'd go so far as to say inappropriate for a multi-billion $ organization. All I can do is SMH at this. Use a 12....
