    It was not Kobe.
    Kobe was left to fucking steer a rudderless ship when his job was not to steer but to be the best rower in the team of rowers.
    This team was fucked by Jerry Buss when he fucked over Jerry West one too many times and the final fuckup was the halfmeasure of giving his kids coownership knowing that they despised each other and would create a slow burning cold civil war within the organization.
    Jerry set the team and Kobe up to fail because he wanted Jim to have his shot at running the team.
    And when Jim saw the writing on the wall he brought in Deng and Mozgov as a final fuck you to the fans.
    Luckily Jeannie was able to bring Magic who is working his magic to get those contracts off the books.
    And do what Jim and Mitch promised but never delivered. LeBron and other top caliber FA.

    ????
    So you magically forgot about the previous 5 games where he put up a total of 81 pts and shot better than .500 each of those games, all while going 5 for 11 from behind the arc.

    Actually it started before that when Jimmy B screwed Jackson form the head coaching job and brought in DiAntoni. To which Jeanie gave Kobe that massive 2 year extension there by eating up all their cap space. If they would have not signed Kobe to his extension first and say resigned Pau and maybe another PG like Bledose/Lowery/Thomas, or a Forward like Haywood. Lets say they had the cash or a one MAX FA in Haywood, then Resign Pau with bird rights and then Kobe with bird rights. Yeah they would be way over the cap but the starting line up would have been W. Johnson/Bryant/Haywood/Pau/J. Hill. Not devastating but far more competitive than 21-61.

    I thought bird rights allowed a team to go over and above the cap to sign a player?

    Its designed to let teams sign their own FA if they are over the cap.
    But they cant purposely go over the cap once the season is over and then sign their own FA.
    I think only in situations where the FA is restricted and there is an offer sheet can they wiggle it through.
    Even then I think they started using the cap hold thing to keep teams from doing that.
    I dont know the current rules all that well but the rules back then I know wont let you do what you want.

    BTW, on some Laker boards, if you criticize Lonzo just a little....like his atrocious shooting percentage, it’s like Team Lonzo comes and attacks you...you family....your mother.

    Good god, such reactionary responses.

    Perhaps they are more worried than everyone else.

    Just mention he has to shoot better and the antibodies start flooding the chat boards.

    6 losses in a row for the Clips
    Now that's the Clips most expected under Griffin's leadership

    Simmons VS Zo
    Saric VS Kuzma
    Ingram VS..Fultz?
    Still no timetable for Fultz's return. Smh
    Philly traded away all that shit to get Fultz.
    Embiid is on the warpath, though, so Lopez is probably in for it tonight

    Lmao Eric Pincus is gotdamn genius
    Says if LAL actually gives Deng a 3 year extension this season, for no guaranteed money beyond his current commitment, that LAL could nab another 4 or 5M in cap space when they stretch and waive him after the season.
    Never even thought of that shit.
    Give him an extension and then waive him..tremendous.
