I strongly agree with this statement. And for some reason... I'm not that upset. Maybe we're simply not good enough, for whatever reason. WE had great three years, won two championships... but we don't have that magic, that chemistry anymore. Although Barnes is a really good addition, IMO, the rest are not very motivated.
Lamar, the 6th man of the year, disappeared and is focusing on his TV show, Artest played alright but lost some of the fire, Kobe is declining (but is still pretty good) -- and Pau is doing absolutely nothing. They are pretty much crushed mentally and physically, and Bynum is the only one worth something right now. Even Fish lost his playoff magic and it's time for him to retire. Good team overall, solid couple of years, but it's time for Mitch to rebuild. Hope I'm wrong, but... some things have to be changed IMO.
