Hopefully Mitch can make some magic happen.
I think Mitch has expended his magic for a while, after the strenuous deals it took to get Dwight and Nash here in the first place, plus filling up the bench with vets and aged journeymen, the Lakers don't really have any pieces to move other than maybe Pau who is currently low value for how bad he's been playing and his knee issue.
But the real discouraging thing is that this is the type of poison that just isn't going to be cured by bringing in some exterior salves. Lakers only chance at this point is to rebuild from inside out and get on the same page, and start actually playing basketball at the high level they are paid millions of dollars to perform at.
The types of errors they are making, consistently, game after game, are D-league caliber, they're worse than D-league caliber. They can't even make a loss entertaining, their wins feel like losses half of the time. That stuff isn't going to be fixed by recalibrating the personnel, it's going to be fixed by practicing, taking the games seriously again, and actually committing to what they are doing on a personal and collective level.
