Mitch Kupchak Presser Today

Recommended Posts



can't tell if i should have no confidence in this guy or if he just doesn't do vanilla interviews well. he sounded more 'just off the boat' than any new hire i've ever heard give an intro press conference. started off with a super disappointing 'here's how i met michael jordan (and probably got this job)' story-- later says he hopes to become real friends with MJ while working for him, then says he answers to MJ (does nothing to soothe fears of who is really in control).

kinda talked a lot about unimportant things slightly related to the questions being asked-- not very good deflection.

idk, i was looking forward to hearing what this guy was about based on his previous stuff, but he sounds like he's just here to wing it til retirement.

The interviews I've heard from him in the past have sounded about the same.  His name gives some credibility to the organization and the hire I guess, but with a somewhat historically great team with Kobe and Shaq and Kobe and Pau how could you really fug that up?.  He did make the trade for Pau, but that's about it from what I could tell.  Gotta be better than Cho though.  Lol

Lakers fans on reddit seem to want to defend this guy pretty adamantly, I still hate the hire but oh well here we go again hornets fans

I thought the interview was awful.  However I only heard the extremely shitty 5 minute thing about meeting mj.  "Gutheridge said I think that guy might can play in the league. " " I responded with you think so? " "that player was Michael Jordan"

 

 

 

Great fuging story Mitch,  no one fuging cares... just make good draft picks

Haven't watched the presser, but Kupchack has the cache that we've lacked in the front office since our reincarnation as a pro franchise.  That means he commands respect not just from other teams in the league, but also I suspect that it will allow him to have more say/push back with MJ when need be.

If you watched the recent Kobe/Shaq sit down, they actually discussed when Kupchak traded Shaq...  you got the impression that Kupchack is fearless and business-first.  Shaq was in full bully mode and wanted to heat Kupchack up, and he didn't flinch...  even had extra security waiting at the office LOL.

Idc about his interviews...  he seems to have a good eye for talent and always owns in trades, and that's all that matters to me.
