Whether it's Jerry taking the blame or not, it would appear that they would prefer losing with anyone else over winning with Phil. Which basically also means that they don't care about winning championships now either. All this is getting blown up soon anyway....

A part of me also thinks that Jerry may not be mentally all there anymore.

Jerry doesn't want Phil involved in the organization and needs to bolster Jimmy....if the cost is winning now with what's left, so be it.

I understand where you're coming from (I'm sure you think my POV is annoying etc), but this is not going away...not this soon.

Just wait for the first D'Antoni coached loss....

Pringles only prescription now....it's not "Run, Run,...Run", it's "Win, Win,...Win".

Win and you'll shut up the doubters....because right now, everyone's a doubter, even the fans trying really hard to be optimistic.

Report is out that Jerry made the decision to hire MDA and it's all conspiracies, lies and cover ups.

Give it time Shadow. Three days isn't going to magically change how this all went down. The fans all got dragged through this thing. There's a lot of animosity towards the FO. And these new things keep getting piped down the line that stir everything up again, at least they do for me.

I just posted in another thread that D' Antoni will be given a chance - there's not much anyone can do, the guy's been hired. The real fans will be rooting for the Lakers. This is our team. But the verdict will be out on this hire until the season ends, just like it always is in such a case. We won't know if it was a good hire or a bad one until it all plays out. In the meantime, I understand that you want the bad vibes to blow away, but it takes time after all of this nonsense.

Well that may be true..but speaking for myself, I would've put that on Jimmy. Jimmy has been responsible for the last 2 coaching jobs....that's on record. It can't be disputed.

This falls under a coaching hire, so if Phil came aboard and we know that there was something between the two, I would've given Jim kudos for swallowing his ego and making the right call.

You're the king of digging up posts from the past. You can go back to my posts and see what I said when this thing looked like it was Phil's job to lose. I gave Jim the credit stating that I can respect an owner that knew his previous pick was wrong and acted accordingly to make the right call.

I may have opened up Pandora's box on myself, but I'll brace for the hit anyways...haha.

I had moved on until Magic came out with his comments and opened the wounds. I'm attempting to move on again, the introductory press conference today and seeing 'Antoni coach us to some wins should go a long way to helping that. Problem is though, if we fail to win it all this season, Phil will be brought up by fans again whether that's fair or not because the question of "what if?" Is always there and can't be answered.

Oh the irony writes itself. The guy preaching "Run Run" can't do it himself. I hope he recovers soon and wish him the best.

It is pretty surprising that no one is running in this shot. :man10:

Funny thing is, the night 'Antoni was hired, he had 7 votes, now, he's up to 27, so you weren't the only one to vote late. :man10:

FYI:

ESPN Radio will have it: http://espn.go.com/espnradio/losangeles/play?s=la

NBA TV too.

Not sure yet about TWC, but they may likely have it as well if not, have it replayed an hour after.

Kobe on D’Antoni message to team “let’s go kick a**”


:jam2:

Dave McMenamin ‏@mcten

Kobe reserved one of his favorite adjectives to describe D'Antoni, calling him a "bit of an [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.]." That's high praise from the Mamba

Kobe "Mike got bit of ******* in him...sarcastic. He'll fit in fine"
