wait... I thought Brian Shaw sold Luke on Mozgov. Luke didn't have time to do much of anything before he got to the Lakers as GS had just finished up it's season.

Jun 19, 2016, ...lost Game 7 of the NBA Finals on Sunday...
Jun 20, 2016, Walton drove down from Oakland on Monday and immediately got to work.
Jun 21, 2016, The Lakers formally introduced the 36-year-old Walton on Tuesday.
June 23, 2016, Draft
midnight, July 1, Mitch and Luke call Mozgov

Lakers assistant coach Brian Shaw is even more familiar with Mozgov than Walton is, having coached him for a season and a half in Denver. In fact, it was Shaw who first promoted Mozgov to a starting role, and his eventual success there led to Cleveland trading two first rounds picks to acquire him. If anyone knows the positive impact that Mozgov can have on a team, itís Shaw.

So much disrespect for Mitch This man was the best GM in the league for a long stretch of time and brought us rings.


I agree.. he made 2 deals that had the NBA in a frenzy.. Pau trade and almost CP3.


And after the CP3 trade was nixxed the very next off-season landed Nash and Dwight Howard.

People bash it, but no one could forsee Lillard breaking Nash's leg. If that doesn't happen we may not be having this discussion.


The DH deal was good and fine. Actually that was a great deal if you consider that Bynum never really played again.


Except that, for Bynum, they could have gotten almost anybody in the league at that point in time, and they chose a player who had made it clear by then that he had little interest in playing for the Lakers. In fact, he was actively trying to maneuver his way to the Nets.

I think just the fact that all the relevant parties will be working together and communicating, brainstorming, etc - including the team president and including the coach - is going to make the machine work a little better. Luke is going to have input.


Absolutely this. There was so much disconnect between ownership, management, and coaching that it was amazing that anyone could see through the (bleep) that was. I mean, the whole Jeanie/Jim bashing back and forth obviously wears on the organization, and thankfully that era appears to be over. And we have a new management in place that appears to be backed by ownership. And a coach that obviously everyone is high on.

This is also what I think. There has been soooo much BS surrounding this team.

I also think that the media has done their best to make it worse. Like the recent Heisler article that is completely setting Jeannie up.

Somewhere along this ride, everyone needs to be aware that people are trying to make money off the Lakers failing. Click baiting us to death.

Having that dynamic going on while our FO basically hated each other was a sure fire way for us to fail and give our detractors so many obvious ways to denigrate us. It was no wonder that no FA's liked what they saw!! Who would?? Nobody wants to work for a company in total turmoil.

And Jeanie made that turmoil public at every trade deadline and the beginning of every FA period.
