Default So whats really going on with the lakers ? An Overhaul from the top to the bottom ?

"It's awful funny that the Lakers, one of the highest grossing teams in the league, could do this to their employees, just throw them out in the cold," he said.

I ask if there's any chance there has been a misunderstanding about what comes next. Teams have to tread carefully on any matter related to the lockout or risk huge fines from the NBA.

Lester said he thinks something else is going on.

"The Lakers have not done a good job in communicating that to anybody whose contract has ended," he said. "Obviously the Lakers don't want these guys back, don't want the scouts back, or they would've said something in that regard.

"So I don't think anybody is coming back. They've not treated people well in that regard."

They are keeping this core for another run at the title. They will obviously try their hand in a trade involving either a PG or C. (CP3 or Dwight are their prime targets)


I got a better question for you though Ash.

What in the world is going in LeBron's head right now?

It seems like the removal(not retirement) of Phil Jackson was just the start of a takeover by Jim Buss. Now he is basically running the team without having to deal with what Phil wants, considering they had a cold relationship anyways.

This seems to happen in a lot of companies where the removal of 1 employee allows the executive to part with everyone else who he doesnt like so he can have a staff full of guys who he hired.

Yeah the removal 20 personnel employees, Phil Jackson, Jim Cleamons, & Brian Shaw makes it seem like Jim Buss is making an Executive Decision.

The fact they've been shopping some of their current players as well makes me think we have a new age beginning for the LA Lakers.

It's about improvin or trying to. Lakers didn't become successful by being kind and loyal

Who cares? As long as they got Kobe-Gasol, they have a shot at a title.

Not too worried about thunder until they get somebody who can score inside and truly know who their number one option is. Lakers need minor upgrades an they shouldn't be worried about anybody.

Picking up a competent starting PG is a lot more than a minor upgrade, dude. Not to mention the implementation of a completely new system courtesy of Mike Brown could create a need for many more potential upgrades.

Won't be hard to find a Upgrade from what is there now. A PG who can shoot, defend and slash will do the job.

the new system will take tim to adjust bu long term it will be fine.

Lakers need minor upgrades, not a overhaul.
