Magic's such a clown, even if he is my second favorite Laker of all time.

Just found out some things about R&B singer Jeffrey Osborne who usually sings The National Anthem for the Lakers...

- he was given by the organization six championship rings.

- he has steadfastly refused to sing for the Clippers and Those Guys.

- Johnson in his inaugural game as part of the Dodgers had him sing The National Anthem.

I say if Durant goes anywhere I look for him to go to the Lakers because they’re going to have a tremendous amount of money to give him. Kobe will be on the way out at that point and they won’t have anybody. A guy like him might want to start with the Lakers, or maybe he might want to go a team where he can win a championship.

Which is why I stress so much to start building a contender now, instead of some people here complaining that we're not tanking for a "chance" at getting our draft pick back from the Suns.

No. We are doing this right. We have the flexibility going into 2015 AND 2016. Audition players who can possibly be strong contributors in the future (Hill, Davis, Lin), and if they meet or exceed expectations, try to lock them down long term on cap friendly deals like Nick Young. If we can grab a Free Agent Big in 2015 like a Marc Gasol, Kevin Love, Lamarcus Aldridge, it'll probably increase our chances of getting Durant.

The goal is to get back into contention as soon as possible, that starts with building a winning team with a winning mindset. And hopefully we can land someone like Durant who will fill the Kobe void.

Yeah the plan seems fairly clear and simple:
1. Have cap space each year to add one high profile guy if you can.
2. Acquire young guys with something to prove and hope that one or two of them sticks.
3. Full steam ahead at Durant in 2016.

still would have preferred grabbing a higher profile young player (like Stephenson) this year as opposed to the hill contract. there still would have been space for a max guy next year and the year after if they played their cards right.

Don't think it was between Hill & Stephenson.. It was between Lin & Stephenson.. Lin only came with a 1 year deal & picks, no brainer.. Our other big contract was always going to go to Pau/Hill/the best big we could get to accept it.. They didn't let D'antoni go so they could start Randle at C.

It might have come to Hill vs. Stephenson but Kobe apparently pushed for Hill.

Also note, it seemed in Lance's mind that he is a "max" type player. The way he structured his contract in coordination with the 2016 deal, he's looking to get paid.

No one wanted to give him more than $12M, and Lance didn't want to get stuck long term for less than that. As seen when he declined the Indiana deal. So he takes a shorter deal in NOLA, with more playing time to showcase his skills, and he's hoping to get a bigger deal.

in the meantime, you might have one of the best sgs in the league on a pretty big discount while you round out the rest of the roster then use bird rights to retain him afterwards.

OR you pay a backup pf/c nearly 7 figures.

I thought Lance went to Charlotte? Either way i wish we had him too but i think we are better off with Hill and Lin for now.

You're right; he was thinking of the wrong Hornets.
