It's not over. This is just a temporary set-back. This will get Mitch to finally get some quality players on the roster during this off-season, so I look for the Lakers to win the championship next season, fa real!!!!

I know that is hard to swallow but anything else is just wishful thinking and will cost us in the long run. One of the best things we still had going for us this year was that a lot of people still feared us. That fear is gone. I don't mean to rag on Shaq too much but I think his lack of commitment to stay in shape over the past couple of years is costing him now(carrying that much weight around is too much for his feet and knees). Of course we don't trade Shaq, but we must understand that it isn't his team any more and we need to go ahead and plan like we don't have him. I know there are a lot of veterans that want to come play here next year but getting older probably won't help much. In the end losing this year will probably be better for us than if we would have won. Why?...because did you see the tears from Kobe and Fish? That's a bitter feeling that will motivate them to play harder next year. Also, because this forces the ownership to make moves in the off season.
Seawell wrote:You're right it will be hard to trade any of our vets but I was thinking maybe we could package our two draft picks along with it? If we can't get that to work out then we should definitely be agressive in the free agent market and at least get younger vets who are still playing well like GP and Pippen.

Definitely, thank you guys for the great run! The great memories far outweigh the pain we all feel right now!

And to Tracy Murray and Samaki Walker, get the f*ck out of here a-holes.
A total waste of a couple of millions.
