Is he overrated by us. I mean some moves are great VC was a amazing move and risking trading for RJ was another great move but outside of that what else has he done? Don't give me any of that stuff about how hw drafted MJ. Anyone with half a brain would have taken MJ when he was expected to go before 3rd. Trading for Kidd was another good move. This off season was a failure if our bench doesn't contribute. We had a choice between a bench and a pf so Thorn went with a bench. Also with the pf issue. Why would he go after a SAR when Stromile Swift fit our need better.We needed a Kmart type player and Stro was it. A rebounder, shotblocker, runs the break and dunks and adds youth along with athletiscm. SAR would only have helped us with rebounding and scoring. Our bench has been a total let down so far. He also wanted a obviously done Aaron Mckie who has done nothing for the Lakers. I think we should have taken Stro. Bottol line is Thorn is a good gm but we ovverate him sometimes. He also is not the best at free agency either.
