Default Mitch Kupchak is not a good GM!!

For those who say that he is a underrated GM. News Flash!
He is not .

This is the guy that traded one of the best centers ever and did not get
a single all star for his team.
He got a pothead inconsistent player who often disapeers in games while being blessed with great skills (Odom). And other player with great potential named Caron Butler. He then traded Butler , who would make the all star game two seasons later , for one of the biggest busts in NBA history : Kwame Brown , also know as Butter Fingers and Wussy.

For those who praise him for drafting Bynum , know that Bynum was Jimmy Buss personal project, not Kupchak.

He made some good draft choices though with Turiaf and Farmar.

Don't forget tha he spent the MLE in three straight seasons with the following players : a 100 year old Divac, a 70 year old Mckey and the Snowboard space cadet (Radmanovich).

**** Kupchak!!!

Can you imagine the Kupchak hate if Kobe had accepted the deal? That would have been worse than both the Butler and Shaq deals.

Be thankful for Kobe. He prevented Kupchak from going down as the most inept GM of all-time.

And some Lakers fans wanted that trade.

What's your excuse? Your team is about 1 injury away from missing the playoffs...and this is if Gibson, Lebron, or Big Z get injured.

He's a mediocre GM at best, which is what I have always contended.

sorry you Laker fans will never live down your retardedness in wanting to trade Bynum for anyone and everyone available at one time just so Kobe could win another championship soon....saying how stupid Kupchak was.

you Laker fans really need to wait a few years before you can talk w/o putting your foot in your mouth. I think 3 years minimum until you can call Kupchak stupid over Laker fans being more retarded.

...that sentence basically wraps up Laker fan.

My main thing is these dudes come with the same excuse-laden BS every year and when you try to call them out, MODS want to start deleting posts and banning accounts. But yet, threads like these remain.

Laker fans have no direction with their rooting interests other than applauding anything Kobe does. Everything else is subject to be criticized at a drop of a dime. Nevermind they're not that good anyway. Let's blame the GM. Let's rename Odom, Odumb, and continue to blame him. Blame the fact Phil doesn't call timeouts. Blame Kwame for being Kwame. Blame Odom again for 'hurting' Bynum and Ariza. Blame injuries again. Blame the teams in the East.

Argh, this crying is ridiculous.

10 games ago everyone was praising him for collecting together a fantastic group of players to make the lakers relevant again. Hello, do injuries mean anything to you guys? We've only had 10 guys suited until just recently when we signed DJ. We're missing our best perimeter and interior defenders, one of our shooters and a back-up C, not to mention second scorer.
Losing to three of the top teams in the league (DAL, PHX, SA) while keeping the game competetive is not a bad showing if you ask me. Let's wait and see how the mega roadie goes. We're playing some struggling teams, and I think Lakers will be able to win over half the games which should be sufficient till the others get back.
