[QUOTE]In Response to Re: HOW is that PERK trade working out now for OKC : This isn't about the Lakers, this is about the fact that Perkins went further than you guys. He made it to THE CONFERENCE FINALS. The other fact is that no matter how he did with OKC he was still a major piece of the cs, period. He was the starting center for the only championship the cs have had in a quarter century, and he was the starting center in last years finals and you were all saying that if he was there in game 7 you would have won. The last fact is that the cs f***ed up. Personally, I think you guys would still be in it if he was starting against Miami. Major bumbling by the franchise you guys call the smartest. And now, all of a sudden your back on the decline and talking about moving this guy and bringing that guy. You all know the writing is on the wall and will very lucky to even compete next year. Who's gonna start at center for you, the 40 year old Fat Daddy? Or no-defense Kristic? The Lakers will still be in the hunt next year even if they stand pat. But of course we're on the move to get Howard, who actually wants to come here. And if he does, it's all over, we'll get to 18 very, very soon, cetainly before you.

Brian Scalabrine made it to the conference finals too... I guess that means we made another huge error letting him get away, according to your logic.
As far as your opinion the Lakers will be in the hunt next year...well, youre right, they'll be hunting elephant with a pop gun. Kobe is going down hill fast and he was way over rated to begin with. Artest has a screw loose and you already got the best from him he'll ever give, the rest is all bad stuff..
Bynum has potential but thats been his middle name his entire career... and what about Pau? He melted in the playoffs and it has to be a great concern how/if he comes back next year.
and if thats not enough, the cherry on top is Phil taking off while the getting is good... You know if the Lakers had a shot at winnin a title next year, Phil would be planted on that bench. We all know Phil wouldnt dare stick around with a weak team....
Lakers will not be relevant next year... as far as contending goes..
Also, never forget... Lakers have 11 titles, not the imaginary ones the teams in Minneapolis won.. I know that bothers Lakers fans not being on the C's level..
