Haynes was just on the Sedano show (will post link when it becomes available) and expanded on his story saying multiple other NBA players who he’s also spoke with, not just Laker players, feel the same way that they consider the Lakers a “laughing stock”.

It is embarrassing. The players have every right to feel that way.

Interesting.
When I transcribed it on the other thread, he said, SOME players said it was an embarrassment. I hadn't him say the players were embarrassed of the front off.


Can you hook me up w/ the link that says the players said they were embarrassed of the FO?

Maybe some of them won't be around much longer to worry about it anymore.

Some should be embarrassed at how they played (unless not hitting free throws and playing no D is OK).

Where is the Lakers media and PR department?

In a vacuum, when the team and its top people are not responding publicly, everyone will fill it with every rumor, innuendo and agenda driven drivel.

They are being told not to speak.media is shut out so they are manufacturing their own narrative.

I think the media should be the ones embarrassed, because most of what they say is nothing but trash. The beauty of it is I have a feeling they're the ones that are going to be walking around with their tails under their arses.

Everyone's a laughing stock when their PLAYERS play like crap.

Conversely, Bron, Steph, Klay and other players have made some new legends.

Harden turned a laughing stock into COTY overnight.

All that money and mirrors to look into?

Honestly, yes loud mouth Magic is at fault but these young Lakers and Celtics need to STFU and give it their best. They will not survive in this league if they act the way they did this season. Don’t care what the rumors are, block it out and focus on your game.

Yes, very embarrassing unless you somehow believe that was our plan. It wasn’t, we got the 4th pick because we screwed up so badly.

Aleluya then. Screwing up seems to have its rewards.

I'm interested to see how this plays out.

As much as people rant on the media here, Haynes has a point about hiring a real set of FO executives to help build a sustainable, balanced roster instead of relying on confidants like Kurt and Linda Rambis and leaving the POBO position empty.

I wouldn't use getting a #4 draft pick as any indication the Lakers are doing things right, not when we have LeBron James on the roster. That's a very good way to get giggles out of non-Laker fans.

The #4 pick is an indication of how badly we crapped the bed after a few of our starters went down with injury. Again, a more balanced roster, not a bunch of 1 year mercenaries and depth issues, would have been more helpful last season than a good draft pick.

My jokes aside, there is no doubt the FO needs an overhaul; completely agree.

How, by signing Lebron and our players getting hurt?

They didn't build a balanced roster last season. The plan was to sign one year deals and have max space for a FA. It worked and now La has the #4 pick and a max slot. Last year was always gonna be a wash.

Thank god they didn't pull a Mitch and sign marginal players to take up the cap room they had.
