I don't trust the current Lakers ownership to build a serious contender for the upcoming years ... it's going to take a while before passing the Celtcpricks in the number of titles category ... and as a fan it's killing me...
Vash reasoning is correct , we need some bad seasons so ownership will be forced to take a look in the mirror ... being an average team is the worst situation to be stucked in ... when it comes to draft picks AND ownership self assessment

His rotations are off now, he obviously didn't inform Kobe that Blake is the PG, he takes out a guy doing great in Henry for no reason, and Hill barely plays until late while Pau is allowed to stink it up for a long time. This team needs to play exactly how it has been, Blake making plays, same bench rotations. Kobe is not Kobe yet, we need to run things how we have been, but does 'Antoni have the power to do it?
@KevinDing: Tonight marked eighth different Lakers starting lineup--and D'Antoni suggested it will change again. Guessing Shawne Williams for Sacre.

Pau makes us much, much worse...he does nothing on offense nor defense; and when he's ineffective, he blames it on injuries. Either way, we're at a competitive disadvantage everytime Pau is on the floor, period.

I agree that Pau has been making us much worse, but we NEED him to get better, and we need him to find his confidence. At this point, I feel like we should at least ride him out till the end of this year just because of this team's chemistry alone. If he continues his 3rd consecutive year of garbage ball until the end of the season, then we offer him mle or he can walk.

Mike D'Antoni is tired of big men going off for career-highs vs. the Lakers. "In the paint, we're awful and we've got to get tougher."

Lakers starting lineup tonight: Blake, Bryant, Meeks, Williams, Gasol. Robert Sacre coming off the bench
