Yup. And with this move he is inching closer.

I still won't say that Pelinka is a great GM (short sample size).

But I will say it is very clear Magic was a terrible POBO and was getting in the way of better people with his terrible (non) work.

You can't say he's a great GM yet, but what you can say is that he's not the in-over-his-head shmuck that so many tried to portray him as.

Your thinking is ass backwards. Half empty as always.

Everyone here is happy about getting cap space and you come in with your negativity. Geez man, talk about Captain Buzz kill. We would win a Championship and you would complain we would have a longer window if "we kept the kids."

Sigh - you learned nothing, padawan. I dub thee "ESPN employee" or "Fox Sports News employee"...the rush to demand something is great *now* after a small sample size.

1. *If* the news is true (IF), that is a terrific step.
2. We need to know what he does with the $$
3. We need to see how this plays out over time [not one off season]

With that said, I'm throwing my hat in and saying AD didnt give up 4 mil unless he knows a big name is coming.

One thing I like a lot about the approach Pelinka brings, is that it feels like he not only things things through, but he is collaborative.

Now we know why he'd walk around the office mocking Magic... he was holding them all back.

Of course there is still doubt. The team has not been ordained champs and will be thin any way you look at it.

Greatness comes with results: victories, especially those in June.

As we've all learned, it is indeed better to "hold the phone" rather than jumping to conclusions.

I think he has done a great job so far and deserves all the credit. This offseason in the front office has been a cluster freak. To have come this far with this much drama, he deserves some love from LG.

Now he can get the A+ with a max guy like KL, Kyrie, or Butler. But no one knows who will choose to come. If not he can still get an A with well used use of the space and filling out the team with solid starters.

Kudos to Lebron and Davis doing their part by giving up a jersey number and Davis letting the trade kicker go.

Some of you need to do apologize, even this much success is a sign of a GM fully comm to Lakers future success.

You are the one that went after the skeptics first.

I love the people that bait those who don't think exactly like them, and then condemn them for responding.

How about not making the comments, and then you will see how much more peace and quiet you get?

You remind me of anti-Lin posters who bring up JLin every time his name is peripherally mentioned in the news and then complain about how you were victimized by Lin's existence.

Don't attack people if you don't want to hear a response.

Yeah he's done zilch the past 2 months

I agree we should have a "wait and see" approach but it wouldn't kill us to give credit where it's due.

Did I name you?

How about holding you accountable for the things you post? How exactly is this doing this backwards? Where is your evidence for this?

Don't post things on a public forum if you don't want to hear a response and be called out for your bull. Keep on buzz killing though.

I was happy to hear the news. But I call things like I see them.

If he signs a max agent I will feel pretty pleased even though the team is still very vulnerable to injury. I will also feel okay if he signs DLo plus a quality center or a good 3 and D wing.

I will not be okay if he signs role players.

However, clearing the space was a very positive sign, as that at least gives hope for the max agent.

So I'd say my reaction was appropriate and not a buzzkill.

Blind cheerleading is as much of a buzzkill to me as stark reality might be to you.

But we are free to react as we want.
