"Goes from an F to an A+"? So he was an F before? Come on Kob, at least give him credit for not making a trade for the sake of making a trade and landing us someone like JO or trading Bynum off or something? I mean if we are at this point right now, he must have been doing something right back then (Patience with the young guys, not dismantling the team, etc)...sometimes the best move is one you dont make.

And no need to bring back some of the Caron stuff or that "pressure to make a diamond" quote


Well, it's the matter of context, I think. Kobe said Kupchak went from F to A in HIS BOOK. I can relate to that since my book writes pretty much the same lol.
That only means that Kobe is speaking for himself, that he considered Mitch to be an F,not that Mitch in general was an F. If you know what I mean.
He did also say a few months ago that he's happy he wasn't a GM, obvious dig at himself there so I pretty much think he's speaking for himself only, not in general terms.
As it turned out, Mitch was smart all along, Kobe was a fool, seems that way now.
But I have no doubt that Kobe considered Mitch to be an F and a terrible incompetent GM before.

But funny how things work out. And for the best.

I would hope Kobe would think enough of his team to take the cut, ala the Big Cactus when he was in Miami, but if that did happen, I hope the FO would spend the money wisely.

Fedor - Laker has an OK reputation so far
Default Re: Kobe: Kupchak goes from F to A+

Kobe isn't going anywhere. He's what 29, he even admitted that he's getting too old, and to go to a team that has a bunch of nobodies and to start from scratch once again, theres not point.

Might as well stick with the Lakers.
