and I would add, the 2 superstars at minimum plan was derived here while jerry west was our GM.

So you're mad because magic and rob are pretty much doing the same thing.

Jerry never built thru the draft as a los angeles GM. and he aint doing it now with the clippers. He's clearing cap space for max players. Thats right ladies and gentlemen, the same exact thing we have done. the difference with that team is, they had stars over their recently that they moved to clear space, get extra funds, make deals etc. we didnt. we started in the rears with a mos and deng contract hanging over rob's and magic's head like a dark cloud. The clippers were already in late april (it was spring time for them already). the clouds are just now starting to clear for us. its Late Feb.

If any of you laker fans are trying to or wishing for a Team that has lebron and a bunch of solid kids or solid role players but no other superstar. then you are wishing for a forever 4th to 7th seed in the west that will not get to the WCF's, and will not think about beating gstate. If thats what you want. so be it. but if not. then please stop asking for an solid team vs going for the big boys.

Though Jerry West didn't build around Sidney Moncrief, it didn't hurt when there was this kid out of Michigan St named Earvin and then some guy they got for Don Ford, a few years later who wore #42.

running them? no, but he clearly is involved with developing their short and long term strategy....as well as consulting on transactions.

I am not even sure what this thread is trying to suggest? That Magic and Rob are as good at building a roster or championship team as Jerry West? If that is the suggestion, that is laughable.

We are giving away assets and signing poor players while creating the space. They are gaining assets and signing impactful players while creating the space. I wouldn’t consider those the same thing. In addition, there are more rumors surrounding the Clippers being a FA destination than us. In the end, whoever gets the big name free agent will be viewed as doing the best job but as of now, we are miles behind.

The Clippers filled their roster with solid vets while the Lakers wasted cap space on their vets. That and the whole playoff thing.

Anybody want to fortune tell that AD was be a Laker but we will have nooooo youth aftward as they will be sitting as a Pelican next year? Also we will get TY Lue run the circus...and when AD take his usual in the middle of the season "Break"...we want even have the draft to look forward to as that will also go out with the arrival of AD?

Annnnd Pray we get AD...because i feel Magic will go into panic mode like ZU and make a trade ..with our youth ...just to say he did...lol

They signed Gallo when they thought they will have DJ/Blake/Gallo lineup

Nick Van Excel
Vlade Divac
Elden Campbell
Eddie Jones
Anthony Peeler
George Lynch
Derek Fisher

All drafted ... then eventually traded, but we were built through the draft. Were they superstars? No. But they were solid and we only missed playoffs once after Magic retired. They became nice pawns later to land bigger pieces that helped us win championships.

Plus they were fun to watch.

I bet Jerry West as a consultant puts in more work than president of basketball operations Magic Johnson.

Jerry West (or whoever making the decisions for the Clips) was smart enough to extend their productive vets such as Lou and Harrell to team friendly contracts. They also dealt free agents to be CP and Tobias Harris for assets (Lou, Harrell, Shamet, picks) instead of just letting them walk out the door like the Lakers did with Randle. They were opportunistic to acquire someone like Zu.
They have been much better around the edges tbh.
