Prince was available to lots of teams. you are second guessing draft picks. a worthless waste of time. your team is on the right path and you are still *****ing. winning is not your god given right. get over it.

maybe laker fans aren't 'right' to b!tch and moan, but if you think that rush was a better choice than what was available, than that's your take.

note i wasn't b!tching about last year's or this years' choices he made.

you can go and worry about the mavs now. they didn't have the cuban er, God given right to win the dam title this year.

har har. the Mavs lost b.c they couldnt shoot. plain and simple. i knew all year it could be a problem. i was always blown away when announcers would call them a jumpshooting team when they have but 3 guys (and KVH had a broken hand so two) that could even shoot them.

Kupchak is the fall guy. Of course not every decision is solely his, but that's the way it works. The fact remains that, aside from perhaps Bynum, the Lakers have not had a successful draft since Kupchak took over.

My whole point...if West was still here Shaq would of never left and him and Kobe would still be playing together.

Kobe always listen to West...West got him to tone down his game and play with Shaq...results the Lakers go 15-1 in the playoffs.

Shaq always listens to....and if Shaq respects you he will do the right thing and swallow his pride like he did when Russell talk to him. West is respected by Shaq the same way.

A lot of the draft choices he gets flak for can be blamed on PJ. eg. Rush and Cook.
Barbarosa and Prince, a lot of teams passed on them.
What about manu and parker, wasn't JW with us when they were drafted in R2?
People don't realize that when we bash mitch, a lot of his "moves" were dictated by other people. Shaq trade (Dr. Buss, though mitch should've demanded more of Riles).
I'm not saying mitch is JW reincarnate but he's not as bad as we make him to be.

he 'retired' in 2002. we'll never know what would have been if he was around especially in the summer of 2003. but that influence would have been there and it's would have certainly been more of an impact that kuchak's and it's not even close.

you're right. west made mistakes too.

but when you find a nicky, 37th???

get a kobe at 13...

the deal of the century getting shaq...you can miss a couple here and there.

west was a hard act to follow...it's usually the case for anyone. but we deal w/the here and now and NOW we want results. it's why fans can be so harsh.

no doubt JW is a hard act to follow, ad I wish Dr.Buss had kept him, but it came down to him and Phil, guess the good doctor's duaghter won that round.

Then again choosing between two legends is not that easy either.

Anyway Mitch is a competent GM. I can't imagine anyone describing him as anything else. He's not JW but he's adequate for now, till someone better comes along atleast.
