Kudos, front office! Thanks, Rob! 

Post#1 » by stan francisco » Wed Oct 30, 2019 10:13 am

It’s easy to beetch about the FO when we stink (Pelagic), so I figured I want to say my thanks and praise to Rob, and the entire front office. Including Magic’s contribution.

They’ve put together a contending roster. Period. Since Magic left, it all happened n no time. Imagine if Cousins comes back and if we can trade KCP and Cook for Iggy. :o

I love Vogel as our head coach. Great defensive mind. Very bright! And the assistants...

We’re back to that Laker excellence. We have come a very far way since story time with Rob. Kudos and thanks for the relentless work it took.

THANKS, ROB!!!

Now go get us Iggy!

Yes. We have more offense than we need.

Personally, I’m most excited about the defensive IQ of this team and its coaching staff.

Add Van Fleet at PG next year and this is a roster for a potential dynasty.

Not to rain on everyone's parade but we've beat up on two teams that we were supposed to beat, and pulled out an ugly win against a Bojanless Jazz. Let's pull off a few more meaningful wins before getting too excited and passing out accolades.

This... I'm not sure FV really understands what he has to work with. He seems to be completely defensive minded and doesn't realize this particular team can win games just on offense alone, if used correctly. His forte was getting out-manned teams to compete at a high level by focusing on defense and execution. I watch his rotations sometimes and think "Relax, take a breath, you have AD and LeBron, you don't need to counter what Utah's doing..."
After years of bitching about our lack of D, I find myself longing for better Offense.

That said, congrats to the FO for getting Green, AB and Howard, and all the little pieces to surround AD after Kawhi played them.

In this era, it's hard to give orgs too much credit for landing the big names because they all seem to get together and just decide where they're going anyway. I feel like I should be congratulating AD for making the right decision more than anything. His Brand is about to hit Shaq levels in LA... Smart move.

In any event... It's nice to finally have a proper team again.

Yup. These next two road games are going to be nice little tests. Besides, it's barely about to be November. Even if we pass both we're so far removed from the games that matter that it's barely worth registering.

The one conclusion I am ready to make: Having Anthony Davis on your team does not suck.

But we can agree things are better than they have been in the last 6-7+ years. Last time we had everything in place this well was 2011.

Negative Nellies. If you don’t see the potential of this team and where they’re going already now, you must be blind.

Vogel said he has a five games at a time roster scheme. He sticks to it for five games, the evaluates. This way, the players get a fair chance to lock in. If improvements are needed, he’ll tweak his rotations over the next five games.

I like the methodical thinking, process of elimination, leaving no stone unturned.

People are still doubting Rob? Common man...he basically picked up the pieces Magic left behind and constructed a roster that is respectable,WHILE waiting on that drama queen Kawhi’s decision. Rob deserves a lot of credit.

I always was giving Kudos to Rob ever since he and Magic brought in Lebron
