So being a successfully run business

No we don't. I am sure most of us don't. It's not being a hater but the Lakers just being handed talent and being flooded with money, and getting everything easy takes away a lot from the NBA.
I like that the Lakers are struggling because it means that basketball is as much about making strategic moves and finding the right chemistry of players and coaches than it is about spending the most money, getting ridiculously unfair trades (see Gasol/Kwame, Gasol/CP3), being the destination of choice for douche bag stars (Howard), and stars looking to team up in their twilight years in Hollywood (Nash, Payton, Malone, Richmond).
over the course of many decades means the Lakers should be on the same level as go nowhere/incompetently managed/small market team that would rather cut good players as soon as they want money and accumulate money from revenue sharing?
You sound really salty bro. So in your mind, any losing season for the lakers is karmic payback for being a destination most players would like to play for? Because let's get real here, if players weren't able to hold teams hostage, most of these deals wouldn't happen.
And stars in their twilight all seemingly had one thing in common - desire to take a paycut to play for the best team available at the time, outside of Richmond.
You are being a Laker hater, and you're doing a terrible job of hiding it. You can try to present it however you like, but you're bitter about a sports team having (presumably) more success than whoever it is you follow. That's petty behavior.
