was it the horrible bynum for howard trade that the lakers are surely regretting?
i think you misunderstood my point... i said a "mistake" not a trade
as for what have they done poorly... everything other than nash and D12 quite frankly
they missed out on a TON of FA's who signed for the minimum elsewhere in order to maintain roster spots for 4 scrubs DJO, Ebanks, Morris, Sacre
how would the lakers be playing if those spots were held by
blatche, barbosa, Pietrus, West?
I use those guys simply as examples... there are TONS of other vets who signed for the minimum who could help
The real problem is we accumulated ZERO bench assets this offseason KNOWING we had no picks we could deal during the season to improve the team...
what if we had signed a blatche for the minimum... wouldn't that have made hill expendable in a trade?
If Mitch and Jim had taken the approach the Nets did with their bench then we wouldn't be playing scrubs major minutes right now.
Bottom line, the FO got lazy after the two trades... nothing more nothing less
