We have been on top forever, well it feels like it. Even in the 90 we made it to the finals. This is the only Franchise that has not even changed their uniforms. We have been winning and we have been consistent. We change our roster and still we are winning more games than teams that have the same roster for years. Lakers fans, we will win again and again, and we will be chaps sooner than people think.

JUST TO PROVE MY POINT.

Do I Need to say more?

I know a great solution. How about trading Odom, Grant, and Butler for Shaq? What do you guys think about that? :nah:

Well, Minneapolis Lakers aside, Lakers' greatness has been built on 2 factors: drafting and signings.

In the draft we got West and Baylor, but that proved not to be enough.
Magic and James were almost enough.
Then Kobe.

But the biggest factor always has been signings. Wilt came from Phlly. Kareem from Milwaukee and Shaq from Orlando. they were the difference makers (well, maybe not Kareem in the last 2 titles in the 80's).

That being said, and assuming the Kobe-led Lakers won't suck enough/not have enough luck to get a top-3 draft pick, we need to sign (again) a difference maker. And unless Buss goes crazy with his wallet, that won't happen soon.

That's why i don't get carried away about the draft. Unless Suckchap trades up, i don't think we could get an impact player. Maybe a guy who could be a star in 3-4 years, but we need immediate contribution, for God knows how long Kobe will be satisfied in here.

But the trade scenario seems bleek... :cry:

i think it might be a long road ahead for the lakers this time..

trading a player like shaq away will take a long time to recover from and to find another force like that..

plus the lakers are in the worst spot to be in the nba MEDICORE..

meaning therye not bad enough to get a high pick to get an impact player or enough or have enough cap space to sign a star player.. theyre in a bad spot..

It could be worse. They could've pulled off some desperation trade deadline deal(s) just trying to stay afloat like the Knicks do every year, bringing in bad contracts.

It is good to see true Faith once again, the lakers will be great again, and when the time comes, we will laugh in all those who proudly call themselves haters.
