"Snakell Beast is an idiot. Learn about basketball before you prophesize the Laker's demise. We have a good opportunity to sign PJ Brown, Juwon Howard, or other free agents. In addition, the draft can produce very good players even in the later rounds. "
Well, if you want to think I am an idiot then more power to you. I certainly won't try to defend myself or my reputation, it speaks for itself. I am not going to sit here and try to convince you that I am an all knowing fan either, but please don't misunderstand my comments.
"I don't think our ship is sinking (don't get me wrong) but the perception at the heart of this issue is not mine, it is that of the free agents in the market."
Can't you see where I was clearly saying we cannot COUNT ON signing any BIG NAME free agents. We can still get enough from just minimum players to get back on top. I still think, and if you read my editorials (particularly The Alpha and the Omega) you won't find me saying we will be anywhere else BUT back on top ASAP. I was merely saying we might have to do it with guys like Adrian Griffin, Eric Piatkowski and Popeye Jones because ultimately the choice of a ring over money might actually lead players to Sacto, SA and Dallas because we are PERCEIVED as a dying team, even though I think we need about 3 mediocre nba talents to get back on top...No hard feelings bro?
