Seeing job Rick Adelman is doing w/TWolves w/out Rubio/Love raises question: is that where Lakers' HC search went wrong?

That's glaringly obvious. They really effed up by not going after Adleman hard and I tell Lakers fans that often.

What an amazing take, Bucher. You're only a year and a half late to the party, dolt.

Hey, seeing Michael Jordan's wikipedia page last night raises the question: did Portland maybe make a mistake in drafting Sam Bowie over him?

I don't think many outside of MN would have thought this after the way our year finished last season.

According to Wikipedia, Sam Bowie said if Jordan was drafted by Portland, he would kill every single NBA owner with a hammer. Oh, he said he'd also copy that floppy.

Is it possible that the trade was lose/lose?

~8 games into the season, and early returns on the blockbuster Dwight trade aren't looking too promising.

The Lakers team that was supposed to challenge the 72 win record is currently (3-5) and has already gotten one coach fired.

After "upgrading" Afflalo to Iguodala, Denver is (4-4), just lost to a bad Suns team, and is currently sitting at 4th in the division.

Orlando is predictably terrible, but surprisingly not the worst team in the league, so that's a positive I guess.

Philly, surprisingly enough, is coming out the best of all the team at (4-3) despite Bynum continuing to look like a constantly injured albatross of a contract.

Crazy stuff. In the unlikely event that this keeps up, this could be a rare 4 team trade that is terrible for every team involved.

For those who wanted Royce White at the draft.

He's about to be very available. Like "pick him of waivers" available.

If you can locate him, perhaps.

With Kirilenko, Williams, Cunningham all as forwards, I don't Royce White is the guy we need. I would be all for signing him and sending him to the D-league but we have a much more pressing need at guard/center and White's limitations (road games) aren't worth adding him to our deepest position.
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt
