Could you elaborate?

What mistakes drafting wise are you referring to?
"crickets"


Sacre, duh

Kevin Ding said he crippled the franchise


Actually it was Shelburne

According to her, Jim Buss' fixation on Sacre was the main reason we could not sign a top tier FA.


no she said because of Jim Buss's fixation with Sacre, we had to let go off Kent Bazemore


I'm glad Mitch and Jim are gone. But Kent Bazemore is overrated and now way over paid.
We dodge that bullet but only to get ran over by the Moz/Deng contracts.


its about Bazemore vs sacred. one is getting paid 15m and other guy is out of league

At the same time, we overpaid Deng because we couldn't get Bazemore.

I wouldnt want either player on this team though, one i getting 17.5 mil a year for less production than Clarkson. The other is Sacred, no winner between the two in my mind.

A lot of people saying he wouldn't leave his agency to be a yes man to Magic. So far that's what it sounds like he will be, or maybe it's just me getting that vibe.

Why would Magic hire a guy for the GM job who had a completely different vision for the Lakers than his own? On the other hand, why would Pelinka have accepted a job working for a guy whose vision for the Lakers is completely different from his own? My point is, you might be mistaking uniformity of vision (a good thing, IMO), with Pelinka being a "yes man".

Was that the "Connected With.." program after the game or was it different? The Connected With interview was filmed shortly after his introductory press conference and was just more of the same, "collaboration and Laker brand" talk along with some additional anecdotes from his past.

Oh I guess so. I thought this was the first time it aired. It was p boring. He's had his talking points memorized for a while, even down to the wording

I'm already tired of that Lakers 2.0 phrase. Time for some re-branding.

I am really excited about Pelinka. The NBA is different than other sports, you have to be VERY careful as a GM for a couple of reasons:

1. Limited Roster Spots

2. Guaranteed Contracts

This isn't football where you can just cut a guy and not have to pay him. And you don't have a huge roster like football or baseball.

The money is guaranteed AND there is a cap. Yikes.

Bottom line is Mitch/Jim completely cratered the franchise...it was beyond brutal and Mitch's botching of the draft protection haunts us still.

Pelinka is being wise to not do what I am sure he wants to do which is act boldly and try and change the thing right away.

Instead, he will have to be patient and strike with stealth, deadly strikes.

Getting Fultz, Ball, Jackson or ? in this draft isn't imperative (I hope) but obviously it would be very, very nice.
