If your fans are hopeless then you probably weren't going to attract much of anything anyways.

So does the mentality of shooting your self in the foot cuz your losing the race produce better results...

Pretty intelligent

I don’t see where it’s up to the fans to inspire the team, it’s quite the other way around.

Looking mighty foolish all 40 of you people who went to staples to protest. Whats the old saying about opening your mouth and letting the world know you are a fool. Your grips should have been kept in house like a fan forum, Like LG. You Fools were played by the media, Clipper fans and a few days later by The very Laker management you berated as having no damn basketball sense. As usual any move by any org will be proven in the up coming season. The Lakers started making their moves, y'all still with us?

Just as the organization took steps in the Wrong direction, they were scorched with justified criticism. Now we got a coach, a high profile assistant coach, the fourth pick in the Draft, things are trending up. Those that jumped the gun to protest are looking even more foolish. For not keeping their powder dry before events needing to transpire come to past. Before the shape of our team comes to pass there are more events to come to pass like free agency. People juot hold you breathe and let the front office work. The things I mentioned were accomplished under duress, not bad. Lakers trending Up... Because they are The Lakers. Have faith.

I hope those season ticket holders are happy with the price they are paying for those seats cause you are paying a ton of money to see a D-League team suit up in Purple and Gold. Enjoy!

This Laker Organization has not yet hit bottom. It is moving there quickly, and I suspect this year we will see zero talent coming to the Lakers and we will trade away Kuz and BI for old vets in the hopes of giving LeBronze some scapegoats.
