Default Kupchak luck

So Pau Gasol deal happened because of Bynum injury, not because of any brilliant masterplan since the summer to deal with Kobe dissatisfaction.

Luck is a component of quite a few deals. Right place, right time for the Lakers.

Alot of it had to do with the unwillingness of them wanting to trade Critt and the picks, not so much Kwame.

Default Re: Kupchak luck

come on now...

The grizz executive made a statement about how they had been in coverstion for months...

Mitch stood pat after all of KB's bellyaching, feeling that the current team was good enough to compete.. And it was no luck that he was correct, even KB stated it when he said "with (Bynum) were a championship team"....

Yes the Gasol move might not have been first priority before Bynum got injured, but Im glad that after that occurred he did not stand pat and waited on him.. he proceeded to return to the Gasol talks and produce a deal, that made the whole NBA stand with their mouth agape...

So by taking action, not only has Mitched insured that the lakers can keep KB, and stay afloat this season, but also contend for years to come...

...luck...please...

SO after Bynum returns we're going to trade pau back for kwame and javaris.

Hahaaa HELL NO! I'll take the luck.

Right place, right time, right Kupchak response.

I first thought he was a puppet, a dumbo, then later a genius mr clutch like Jerry West, but it appears Kupchak is NOT a mastermind genius but just Mr Luck.
