Jim, I understand your sentiment. But I just can't root for a tank this year. Top 3 is too difficult. We need the basketball gods to throw us another bone.

2 of 4 of these players will be Lakers in 2018 (LBJ/PG13/WB/Boogie)

Get worse record this season, top 3 pick easy. How to do it? Put in a bad lineup whenever we get up by more than 10

Yeah. And when a team plays with no heart too, then it's time to consider making a drastic change.

Too bad they won't hire me ... I'd even consult for them!

Fix the franchise in 18 months easy. Like Jimmy's timeline.

I agree it's too early but I'm curious. When?
