Now we see why the Lakers failed under Magic

Recommended Posts



they didnt fail under Magic, Magic did exactly what he said he was going to do in that year he was with the team. the Lakers are run like poo but it doesnt matter because they are in LA and that makes everything better.

The Hornets could become the LA Hornets and the Lakers could become the Charlotte Lakers and with no other change, the LA Hornets would instantly become one of the league's hottest FA spots.

I'm trying to think of any top free agents the Lakers attracted in the decade prior to Lebron's arrival....any ideas?

You think Charlotte can get free agents as easily as LA? Seems to be what you're implying.

No.

Got any names?

Just off the top of my head, Metta World Peace and Steve Nash would've instantly been major cogs here. 

It's also worth noting that the Lakers were both cap-stretched due to Kobe, and later tanking, for several seasons -- and still managed to land a superteam in the offseason. Think the Hornets can pull off the same thing in a couple years?

Artest was over a decade ago and he really wasn't all that for the Lakers.  Certainly not an All-NBA player like Big Al Jefferson was for the Bobnets.

Nash signed with the Lakers in year 17 of an 18 year career....Tony Parker signing with the Bobnets was just as meaningful as Nash signing with the Lakers.

Want to to take another shot at any meaningful signings by Lakers in the decade prior to Lebron?

Why? All you’re doing is dissing whoever I mention. I don’t get your point in attempting to disagree that LA is a bigger FA destination.

    • Lol. No merit? You have a stat that in two years has Gano’s best year ever and conveniently ignores the year that made us draft a kicker. A stat that ignores the fact that Gano missed 4 games and is hurt yet again, 3rd time in 4 seasons. It ignores the fact that Gano’s best year ever was because Rivera only let him attempt 1 50 yard FG. Rivera has taken the ball out of his hands and you want to use a stat purely based on his attempts. How about all the punts when we were in FG range? Where’s that in the capture rate? If you also can’t get that Gano cost us $3.5m each year of Butker’s contract then there’s no point. Gano’s done nothing the past three years to merit the amount of faith people put in him around here. Keeping Butker would have been a better decision for our team. Whether you consider it to have merit or not makes not difference to those of us not blind to reality. Andy Reid has faith in his kicker, our coach does not in his.
    • his run style, foot quickness, and speed, all look like cmc. probably needs work in route running but this dude is by no means a cap clone
    • he kind of just did. buffalo's D ain't no joke. and he did it with a crappy OL as well. the guy is going to be great having on the field with and spelling CMC. he's got a lethal punch, he's fast, it looks like he's got good vision, and he's got much better hands than advertised and has potential as a decent route runner.  i'm on board having this guy on the team. gives us another good weapon on offense.
