Yes - without a doubt, the most excited I have been about any pro team EVER. More than when the Yanks signed Rocket, or A-Rod and Giambi, or CC and Tex later. More than when the 49ers signed Prime Time to beat the Cowboys. More than when the Lakers signed Malone and the Glove.
This summer we signed Steve Freakin Nash to replace Fisher and Sessions.
Finally got Dwight. Signed Jamison and Meeks for our bench.
And now I have never been as sad, embarrassed, and frustrated as a fan of any team in any sport (even more than when the Yanks choked a 3-0 series lead away against the Sox). The Lakers have the highest payroll, talked about a championship, and now are more likely to be a LOTTERY TEAM than make the playoffs.
Now I don't even like turning on sportscenter or reading CBS Sports or even following the NBA. The Lakers are paying taxes to all the other teams that are laughing at them.
And on top of it all, we totally dissed Phil in a classless way. Wow. I am almost beyond words with this.
I wish we could all meet in person for a group hug.
