Jeannie and Magic are CLEARLY the way to move forward. If I could I would make that faggot Jim eat a cyanide capsule.
Could you please be a little less ambiguous?
I'm not quite sure I know how you really feel
Mitch will be fine. I am pretty sure he doesn't need to work if he doesn't want to.
I think that regardless of what he might be able to accomplish when not having to follow Jim Buss' directives, I still think he needed to go.
The reason I feel that way is because I believe that the Lakers currently have a perception of incompetence issue among players and agents in the league if Jim Buss or any of his minions are involved in basketball affairs for the Lakers.
I don't the Lakers could have afforded to keep Mitch in his current role moving forward without risking the continued impression that things are a complete and utter SNAFU in their front office.
Mitch was unfortunately collateral damage at best. He had his chance, and he along with the man he reported to were a total sh*tshow. He had a good (very) long run as GM is a league that doesn't tolerate a lack of results for too long before something has to be done.
I would say "thank you kindly for your contribution, but we are going to go in a different direction moving forward."
I wish him the best, but I just don't think the team could afford to keep him as GM.
