    [QUOTE]RUWorthy, So you are basing your '91 statement on an assumption that Kobe is going to be forced to retire this year?  Magic was the best Lakers player on that '90-'91 team along with James Worthy. Only, AC Green, Byron Scott, and Mychal Thompson had won any championship rings with their last being in 1988.  The current Lakers who have more than 5 players on the team with multiple rings and only 1 year removed from being in the NBA Finals 4 straight years are in much better shape than that '91 team regardless of how you spin it. Do you even realize that this current Laker team has played 67 playoff games in the past 3 years alone? Of course, they were worn out when the playoffs began this year and with the internal issues, it was too much to overcome for them. But anyone with common basketball knowledge knows that the extra rest with not having to play into June this year is only going to help them, so if you really believe that this Laker team is like that team of '91, you need to take a refresher course on your Laker history as the differences are too many to even count. The Lakers will be back and stronger than ever this next season with revenge on their minds. And as always, thanks for playing.

    You must be a Celtic fan. Didn't you LA trolls say that only Celtic fans make excuses like that?

    Not an excuse, just a mere fact. Laughing

    You expect us to believe that?

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Interesting article from the LA Times : Yet, Jerry Buss is turning these Lakers over to Jim, and that’s the reason sources say he conducted the search with his father and general manager Mitch Kupchak assisting him. Now, Jim Buss has two guys in the franchise: Brown and  Andrew Bynum (notes) .   In fact, Buss has made something clear within the Lakers, sources say: Bynum is untouchable in trade talks. For now, this could include a sign-and-deal for the  Orlando Magic ’s Dwight Howard (notes) .  The Lakers are Howard’s preference, but they don’t have salary cap space to sign him. They’ll need a deal that includes Bynum to the Magic, but there are those seriously doubting Jim Buss’ desire to make such a trade. After all, Bynum was Jim Buss’ discovery, his pet project and believes Bynum will ultimately resonate as the son’s personal Lakers legacy . http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/news?slug=aw-wojnarowski_mike_brown_kobe_bryant_jim_buss_lakers052511

    Jim Buss is the unknown here. My uneasiness is tempered by the presence of Kupchak, but decisions ultimately are left to the guy in charge. His first big call worked out well - Bynum. His second - Brown... well, we have to wait and see. But the Lakers have done nothing to lose the trust of their loyal and passionate fanbase. Yet.
