I just dont see that the Buss family and current FO are going to bring us back to a consistently competitive level. We might get lucky this offseason, but long term, these clowns are not the answer. Want to restore instant credibility to the franchise? Here is a plan to do so. 1. I understand that AEG owns about 25% of LAL, and has a right of first refusal if the Buss family circus wants to sell. Some pressure from agents, the league, former Lakers greats might be enough to convince the Buss family circus that its time. Make the Rambis clan fade to the back shortly. Mend fences with Magic, giving him some symbolic but meaningless position (he's a douche bag but the public still loves him). 2. Hire West away from the Clippers asap, make whoever pi$$ed him off apologize, then hire a GM who will follow JW's advice. Hire some young FO talent that can be mentored/ groomed by West to take over within a few years. It absolutely kills me that JW has done for the Clippers what he should have done for us, except FO egos got in the way. 3. Make Vogel hire some assistants that can be groomed to take over, rather than the re-tread assistants with baggage that he is collecting (probably with current FO "insight') right now. Thoughts?
