Nice to see since he promised to be more viable this year, but I'm not expecting him to say anything of substance. :boxing1:

I want to listen, and I don't want to listen. I don't want to hear about staying the course, being patient, injury excuses, new coach and new system excuses, don't want to hear any of it. If he's honest and genuine like he has been in the past with these rare interviews though, it will be an interesting listen .

It's Jim Buss.

I agree with all of you guys (not surprising).

I think this could be another "we're not looking for another home run" idea. He'll come out and say "I know we're not where we want to be, but we're working hard on getting better." Then we'll say "ugh! We know that already!"

Then we'll trade Gasol for Kevin Durant.

On Laker struggles

" I don't know if we have 5 games with our starter playing"

"When you have injuries like that.....you can't get chemistry"

"you cant get the defense going if you cant play together"

"You can't get an identity if you don't have your players together playing games"

"we found a re-occurring theme...injuries have played a huge part in our losing"

on blowing the team up:

"how can you not believe in this team

"this team is built to win"

"we haven't seen them all together"

"we would not consider a temporary fix or blow it up"

"why blow up something that can have a future"

"If we put it together we can string 7, 8 games in a row"

"We can go in to the playoffs with momentum....I can see this happen with this team, not ready to let it go"

on Mike Brown, MDA & Phil

"yes I believe MDA is the right choice"

"I like D Antoni a lot, believe in him 100%, I have no questions about him"

"team needs to work together & play together"

What got MDA the gig?

"Steve Nash....the dynamics that those 2 had together...Nash is our feature PG for the next 3 years, and we wanted a coach that suited him"

"he fit the team"

On Phil & Nash, & Nash being in the Fisher role, was this considered in not getting Phil?


"yes"

"if we make the playoffs, we'd be playing good ball in the playoffs"

"so if we make the playoffs, we're gonna go deep"

"the way I look at it, we're still excited about the team, but injuries have played such a huge part...not frustrated with the players"

"our transition D is a little weak, one of the worst in the league"

On Dwight, chances of re-signing

"If we make the playoffs, we're playing well, we'll go deep, & Dwight will stay"

"If we fall apart, hoping we can convince him injuries & not being 100%, and will ask him to give it another shot"

"laker fans understand why we're losing, but they beleive this team can turn it around....I get positive feedback...100% positive feedback from fans....not sure what you guys are talking about these caller calling in"

on pau

"I love Pau Gasol"

"shooting 16-18%, you're lucky to shoot 40% on the season"

"He played well with Andrew Bynum"

"I believe eventually he will move down there & D Antoni will move him down there and his FG% will get back up there to where it was"

on defense

"if we can get rid of the injury bug, we'll be able to play off each other......and improve automatically"

"we have no identity on defense, but that comes with playing together"

"let's not consider blowing this thing up at all"

"if you miss 3's, those misses turn into transition O for opponents"

"we are the 5th best defensive team in the half court"

"I do't see what people are seeing...I dont see loafing around at all, I see easy buckets for teams in transition, but that to me comes with playing together"


all right, meeting time. that's all I can provide

what did he say about gasol?
I should get an assist for that. It's an intentional pass to oneself, so it's an assist. That way people can't say all I do is shoot.

Just a straight up lie.

He thinks the fans are idiots, or he just doesn't consider the fans at all.

Sorry to mislead you guys, no. All that I meant about Gasol is that this is the same schtick he gave to us prior to the team getting Howard and Nash.

This feels to me like he's just working up Gasol's value one last time before a trade.

The western conference is a full court conference Jimbo.

And this is the true crux of what the problem is.

Dude is completely oblivious. I cant tell if it's his arrogance or his ignorance blocking the view, but the guy can't see the truth sitting 5 inches from his face.
