It's only fair after so many years of domination and glory. I myself love it when the Yankees fail, those rich ******** think they can just buy championships every year and they can't and I revel in it. Most of all I love how my Angels own them and they can't figure out why. It's only natural to hate the best I guess is what I'm saying, otherwise there wouldn't be a "Beat LA" chant, nobody else has that.
Well its not like our payroll is double the leagues and we have proven talented players from various places. The Yanks while losing and underachieving still have Rivera, Jeter, and A-Rod. The Lakers have Kobe. I'm not saying we need to spend like the knicks, but if taking on bad contracts will help us to get the talent we need, we need to bite the bullet. After all ticket prices ain't getting any cheaper.
I just want us to pick one direction and do it.
Either win now or win later
Win Now = Trade Bynum
Win Later = Trade Kobe
Don't care which it is, but I'm tired of the Lakers having their cake and eating it too- they charge up the nose in ticket prices because we have Kobe, but won't trade their attractive assets (Bynum, Farmar, Critt, Turiaf, etc) because they are young and on rookie contracts (e.g. cheap).
The best course of action is to trade Kobe because we have more young talent than championship supporting role players. But Buss makes too much money off sellouts and having National TV games and Ad revenue, and kickers from AEG because of ratings.
So they keep the payroll modest, have a ticket seller in Kobe, but refuse to do anything that will put us in the second round, unless, and only unless, they make a trade in which they trade their trash for a hall of famer (e.g. they were willing to do the Kidd trade so long as Bynum wasn't in it).
I just can't stand all the politics going on over there.
Just pick one route and do it.
Give us a team that can legitimately win 50-60 games and make it the Finals, or blow it up and put a young and exciting team out there.
Enough of this 40 win team that gets spanked in the first round. Those are the worst type of teams. Always in the middle. Not sucking enough to get lottery picks, and not good enough to have a legitmate shot at the Finals.
Its a joke.
