good Move, as we just needed a guy who has great relationships with other players/teams around the league who knows the business and the CBA.

Also, he's not as big a basketball head, so it allows lakers to bring up Ryan West.

I like it.


BTW, Nice to see you SoCal Mike. Feel like it's been a while. Wonder how guy's like GTS and LakerFreak are doing. Anybody have any idea if they are still on here? I believe GTS still owe's me a 12 pack. Think we decided on Cactus Cooler since I was 20 years old at the time, but I'm game now. haha
