Why would we want the Clippers to get a championship?

The only way for Kobe to lead the Clippers to a championship without CP3 and Blake is if David Rivers come out of retirement and play PG for the Clippers.

I should get an assist for that. It's an intentional pass to oneself, so it's an assist. That way people can't say all I do is shoot.

I guess I'm showing my age. Guess you were too young for Magic too because David Rivers symbolizing the beginning of my Laker obsession. 1988 was the first NBA draft I sat through, just to see who the Lakers pick. "With the 25th pick of the 1988 NBA Draft, the... Los Angeles Lakers select.... David Rivers from the University of Notre Dame." You see how I even got David Stern's pause down?

LOL. I don't really like him, he just represents nostalgia. He represents my first hope and hype of a Laker player. The same type of hype and hope we have for Andrew Goudelock, Darius Morris, Ebanks, etc. David Rivers didn't do much for the Lakers actually. Mainly because he had to play behind Derek Fisher.

Who was David Rivers?

Or maybe because he went face first through a windshield at high speed and severed his body nearly in half, before he had ever played one game in the NBA. And Fisher was probably in middle school then beginning puberty.

He got through the accident and became a 1st round pick. Good enough for the eyes of Jerry West. So I'm not sure what you're saying.

Also, by explaining to me that Fisher was still in middle school means that you didn't understand my joke, my sarcasm. No youngster on the Laker squad like Andrew Goudelock will ever be unleashed until this man retires. The Lakers have developed an unhealthy infatuation or dependency on Fisher's so called "intangibles." He's getting playing time obvious not for his prolific point guard skills, but for "the little things" he does.

Clearly didn't get the Fisher joke. Still don't after your clarification.
While Rivers did recover from the accident his jr year, he was really never the same player. That was point I was making. I saw at least 75% of his ND games living in a ND crazed home at the time, working on the east coast. I was in my 20's at the time. He was drafted on the 'hope' he was the old David Rivers but it didn't materialize and that is why he was left unprotected in the expansion draft. Had he showed up, the Lakers would've clearly kept him as the heir apparent to Magic at point.

LOL! That's my bad. It was more of an inside joke, you would need to know me to know my disdain for Fisher. I can't wait till he's done. I'm basically saying he's been around for 100 years. Exaggeration.

Rivers was never the same, but once again, 1st round 25th pick. Do you think West would waste a pick on someone knowing that he wouldn't amount to nothing and then would have to be left unprotected for the expansion draft? If you're telling me that you knew ahead of time that he wouldn't amount to nothing because you absolutely knew the effects of the accident on him, then you're saying West didn't do his homework. Was it really the accident, or was he just a little bit of a bust?

I remember I was enamored with him because of Isiah Thomas. I thought wow, wouldn't it be cool if Rivers was our very own dominating little point guard... Anyway, David Rivers, my first NBA draft. He will never be forgotten.

truth is at 27 mil and 30 mil for the next two seasons, bryant has absolutely 0 trade value. he'll retire a laker, which is the way it should be. unfortunately, it's going to be some lean seasons until he retires. when you have one guy earning half the team's cap, there's very little that can done to put very good players around him and form a competitive bench. just the way it is.

Actually a much better trade would be Kobe to Charlotte for Byron Mullens and Bismack Biyombo. :jam2:
