Default I say forget the future plan and win now!!!!

I understand Mitch has a plan to lure in another superstar but let's face reality, Kobe Bryant is not getting any younger.

I appreciate What mitch is tryin to do but we cant wait all the time. I say lets win now.

Lets make big trades, forget Salary cap, thats just insecurity.

Lets get big help now because we can do that in the future also.

We are impatient and hungry for another finals appearance and we have many good pieces but we wont get anywhere if we keep waiting for money.

What do you all thnk?

Great idea...too bad 10th pick wasted on Bynum and not on Granger. Missing out on Artest hurt as well.

The future is another 7th seed if they are lucky. Alot of teams are better.

It can go either way...yea we want to win now but what big trades can we really make...we have lamar for trading bait and that is all...i dont know if we can pull off some blockbuster trade to bring in a superstar...but yes i agree with you kobe is not getting younger...whatever they plan on doing must be in the next 2 years at least...i think they are hoping next summer will be their big push to real contention becasue brian grants contract comes off the books..i dont think they can wait longer than next summer...

Andrew Bynum was not a bad pick. He is going to be one of those players that you have to wait a long time on and reap the rewards later. He will be a good guy to have around in the future and you will be thankful we have him. Would Danny Granger contribute quicker? Yes, no doubt. You have to remember Bynum came out of High School, and he is no LeBron James and you would be foolish to think it was a bad pick when he hasn't even had enough time to develop. Just give the guy time, ok? And we aren't gonna get any superstars with Lamar Odom. And even if we did, we would have to give up alot of our role players to make it happen. And even two superstars won't win us a championship. You need a team to win. And we aren't going to get a Shaquille O'Neal caliber player even if we trade everyone but Kobe on our team. We don't need another superstar. We need rebounders and passers, and maybe another shooter, like Q-Rich or something. But no superstars.
