    If we only end up with Amir Johnson I’m going to lose it.

    Meh. BI will be better than PG in 2 years and beyond. Don't want Boogie, so I will complain about that being a best case right now. Ugh.

    Im pissed at how Paulina disrespected Magic and the Lakers. I bet our FO knew what was up (Mintz told them) but Paulina should sat with them and tell that to their faces. Guy is a p****. I bet he'll break up with his wife/girl via sms or email.

    I can understand Durant not wanting to meet with us. Hell Lamarcus gave us two meetings but PG not even considering to meet with us? That friendship with Westbrook must be pretty tight. So much so he ignores his family’s wishes for him to play in L.A. Whatever....Westbrook basketball it is for him. Hope he has fun.

    2 max slots and we may not get a max player. Time to extend Deng.

    Seriously, if we strike out with 2 max slots Magic and Pelinka gotta go.

    Why they need to go? The guy didn't even give them a chance.

    Other than LeBron who is worth max money?

    It was easy to blame them because they never defended themselves. Reality is the Lakers have no clout anymore. Lakers will have to do it organically.

    Nah all they need is to trade for Kawhi now and stopped being overconfident because it's LA and the Lakers .

    i'll NEVER defend the veto, but the situations are very different. i think the league looking the other way on paul to the rockets last year was closer.

    the nba has tried to close loopholes on superteams, but when guys will take less money, there's nothing you can do. you can't arbitrate in that way. or at least it would be bizarre.

    now i'm mad about stern again.

    I know what could have stopped the super team and not one TV analyst is talking about, cap smoothing. We wouldn’t have KD with GSW. We wouldn’t have DC taking peanuts to play for GSW because there’s no money. We wouldn’t have a bunch of guys taking one year deal this summer because there’s no money. We wouldn’t have 25 to 35 guys making outrageous amounts of money, while the other majority of players taking less then their worth. We wouldn’t have MOZ/DENG. I wonder if the players had to vote again, if all this crap would have changed their minds.

    Letting Randle go for nothing...

    Signing a bunch of knuckle heads. Great job Rob... Idiocy obviously has no limits.

    Randle pushed to leave. Not sure how that lands as our FO's fault. Those knuckleheads are good players on one year deals. Not sure how that equals idiocy. Last I checked Rob and Magic procured the biggest free agent signing for the Lakers since Shaq. That's not idiotic, that's great.

    LeBron signing has nothing to do with the follow up moves.

    Randle wanted to leave because he felt disrespected... Did you ever ask yourself WHY he pushed to leave?

    No those knuckle heads aren't good players.

    Look for excuses if you want. I won't.

    We could have signed Napier and Cousins for about 9 Mio instead of Rondo.

    We have added LeBron and then screwed up every other move. Congratulations. A bunch of low character non-shooters.
