Twitter is shredding Dwight to pieces right now.

Hilarious.

Re: The Lakers WON'T make the playoffs (what's next?)!

dude, seriously, they cant be cheap because they are holding up the entire west coast with their twc deal - they must deliver the goods - they've never been cheap in the past and they especially cant be now with their new TV deal - of all the things to grouse about this one is the least necessary

At this point I'm on the fire MIke D'Antoni bandwagon.

Incredible mismanagement. Guess they never considered what would happen if D'Antoni was a bust.

Disagree. They could never get full value for him now from New Jers...er, Brooklyn.

Over 20 years. Once you make money, the last thing you want to do is give it away.

Is Brooklyn over the cap?? Larry Coon says teams that are over the cap can't receive players through sign and trade.

Like I've said before, this entire situation is going to make for a great case study. There have been so many mistakes on the managerial and coaching sides. You think good ol' Jimmy would've learned his lesson the first time, when he hired Mike Brown.

I agree with Bill Simmons. It was never a matter of D'Antoni being a better fit; it was because Jimmy has issues with Phil: The classic "I hate my sister's husband" scenario.

And I hope to god that the Lakers don't sign Howard to a max contract. He hasn't shown that he is worth that type of money whatsoever. I'm tired of his act. Bynum at least walked the talk, even though he was hurt 60% of the time.

It's more like Jimbo doesn't want to lose control over the team I'd guess. He doesn't seem to get along with his sister either, I guess because they both want to wear the pants. At this point I would guess that Phil probably thinks he dodged a bullet. I don't think he could have fixed that team without selling his soul to the devil.

Well, I said in an earlier thread that head coach Jesus Christ himself couldn't get this team to .500, I am wondering if the devil could.

The Lakers and the hereinafter. Heaven help us all.

According to Coon they have to be over the APRON which is 4 million over the cap.
