This is a nice thread. And everyone is saying things that are true. My favorite part is keeping the Pillsbury Dough Boy on the bench for a year. He can do his GQ interviews from there.
But - we have to think here, people.
Once Howard left, that was the end. I knew it, you knew it......and the lakers FO knew it, too.
They will stink for the next two years - no 6th ring for koME. Even Jerry West said so last week.
However, a new cable contract, and $500/game seats for Jack the Joker, et al means they HAVE to have something to watch.
For the next two years, koME will chase MJ and Kareem on the scoring list. All the delusional lakers fans out here will talk about him being the GOAT, and life in la-la-land will go on.
They cannot justify charging that much money to watch a team s.ck.
It was a good business move...................now, hiring two-time failure Byron Scott as the coach would be perfect. Former laker star, and "above" any blame since he played with Magic - yes, these are all very clever moves by Jimmy. It's "best for business....."
