How 'GM' Mitch Kupchak Screwed Up the Hiring of Luke Walton

May 2, 2016 - Posted by SPQR

The Lakers have their new coach, wonder boy Luke Walton of the champion Warriors.

As fans we all had opinions of who we wanted, we all had our favorites.

Some wanted Luke, the new bright shiny object; others wanted Kevin Ollie, or veteran Messina from the Spurs. Or the well traveled no nonsense Van Gundy.

And if you wanted someone, that's who you hoped would get the job. And that's fine, because you and I are fans. All we have to do is want someone and hope we get that person.

But the GM of a sports team has to do more than just want someone, have a hearts favorite. Because a GM...

Better Luke Now Than Later.

May 1, 2016 - Posted by SPQR

We have our new coach, Luke Walton.

I don't think too many are sad to see Byron Scott leave. The team was historically awful under his charge. Was it all his fault? Probably not, but he was the head man and some culpability falls his way.

After Scott's departure GM Mitch Kupchak said there would be a long search populated by many names in order to find the right man for the job after several years of mediocre choices. And there were many good choices out there, including Spurs heir apparent Ettore Messina who was interviewed.

But they could have saved Messina the plane ride because...

Goodbye to a Legend

April 13, 2016 - Posted by PurpleKnight

How do you say goodbye to a legend? I've done it before. First with Kareem in 89. Then with Magic in 92. Worthy. Shaq. And now Kobe Bean Bryant

This is definitely the hardest since Magic announced that he had HIV. Kobe has meant so much to The Laker Nation. He literally gave us his all. He dedicated his life to being the best basketball player that he could be while honoring the iconic Purple & Gold jersey with all of its rich history. Was he perfect? No. Was he the best? Debatable but probably no. But he was ours. He brought great pride to our great franchise. 5 Championships...

What Phil Jackson gave the Lakers and what he ripped away.

April 1, 2016 - Posted by SPQR

Phil Jackson. His name says it all. The ultimate winning coach in the NBA. He won six rings with the Bulls and was rewarded by being run off in spite of the fact that team may well have won more if he and they had been allowed to stay together.

With our Lakers, he won three in a row, left, then came back to help us get two more. We owe everything to Phil with no complaints, right? Nothing bad to be said, no regrets. It was all good with him and he did nothing but help this franchise.

Or did he?

The Lakers powerful edifice of success was long supported by two powerful columns that...

Russell, Swaggy P the Lastest Clowns of the Lakers Circus

March 30, 2016 - Posted by SPQR

Well, to paraphrase the Beatles, We heard the news today oh

Our first round pick and future franchise player D'Angelo Russell outed the cheating ways of a 30 year old engaged teammate who likes to be called Swaggy P.

This was the kind of thing one would expect, years ago on team like the Clippers or in football today on a team like the Browns. But it happened here and is it really a huge surprise? For the last half decade or so the ownership and management of this team has been striving to turn the erstwhile most successful, respected, and storied franchise in NBA history into...

Lakers All in on Durant and I Don't Want It.

March 13, 2016 - Posted by SPQR

Was listening to a sports radio show the other and heard some things Mitch as planned that did not exactly thrill me. Of course the words thrilled and Mitch Kupchak have pretty much been mutually exclusive for me for some time.

What the said was the Lakers are going to go after Durant like no team has every pursued a free agent before. That includes stratospheric money and promises made in all kinds of areas including player decision. It also includes up and including hiring Scott Brooks as our coach if that is Durant wants.

Hiring a failed Scott Brooks is not what I want. There are a...

Next Lakers Coach Candidates

February 17, 2016 - Posted by Apollon

Personally, I think Lakers will keep Byron Scott for another season, beyond this one, for 2 reasons:

1. This year was Kobe's farewell tour, and Lakers' management realizes Scott's ability to develop players and achieve results was compromised. I believe they feel they owe him another chance, to see what he can do when there are no more excuses or distractions.
2. Mike Brown, D'Anthony and now B. Scott - firing a 3rd coach in almost as many years sends a message to the league about the competence of Lakers' front office. Lakers FO is already heavily criticized by everyone, so the last...

Balancing the Lakers from Within

November 8, 2015 - Posted by warrenweelim

Balancing the Lakers from within
by: Warren Lim

Kobe Bryant has been the face of the Lakers for most of his 20-yr storied career. There is no question who the greatest Laker is, from start to finish. With 5 rings, an MVP and 2 Finals MVPs, 3rd all-time in scoring, 81-point game, among many others, it will be awhile when the next Laker great will ever smear that record.

The skeptics and the media will tell you to "suffer" through Kobe's 20th (and perhaps final) the truest of fan in me says I'll relish the time I still see the Black Mamba spew venom to the enemy....

Lakers Free Agency Rollercoaster

July 6, 2015 - Posted by PurpleKnight

The Lakers were on a hot streak. They not only kept their draft pick. But also jumped up 2 spots over New York & Philadelphia to secure the #2 pick in the draft. That landed us the best point guard in the draft. D'Angelo Russell. Who has the potential to become our best point guard since the legendary Earvin "Magic" Johnson.�

Heading into the free agency you could had put some butter on us because we were on a roll. Jimmy, Kupchak, Kobe & us the fans were almost cocky. We all just knew that we were getting Aldridge, Love, DeAndre, Lopez, Monroe or Cousins. Shoot for a...

Egomaniac Kobe, Obtuse GM Mitch Chase Aldridge from LA.

July 1, 2015 - Posted by SPQR

So the free agency festival began today. Teams and fans with high hope to lure a star or two to win a title or buttress their team to another level.

And as quickly as it began, it seemed to come to an end, particularly for the Los Angeles Lakers. Love, Butler, Lopez and host of others, all whom the Lakers had designs on signed back with their teams for long deals.

But there was one player out there whom the Lakers coveted who reciprocated that feeling: Lamarcus Aldridge, the 29 year old all star from Portland. His camp had made it no secret that Aldridge's first choice was the LA...
