Teams in the NBA will hire a player just to prevent him from going to a competitor. We Have seen It in the NBA time after time. For some reason The Lakers seem confident letting Jerry West go to their most competitor in the Clippers sharing the same city the same building knowing what Jerry Can do. Is it Ego Partly yes. It is about getting credit rather coming together for the same purpose winning a Championship togheter. A key to the car has been given to Magic Johnson so Magic wants to show he can drive the car without any body’s help . Jerry has been successful almost every where he has been , him been part of the Lakers will almost certainly take credit of any goods coming out of the Lakers few years to come. The problem is you have to produce and if you don’t , The Lakers fans aren’t going to seat down without challenging your ego. Let Imagine Jerry West Bring in on Board LeBron James instead of the Lakers and becomes a factor not only for a championship while the Lakers continu to improve their young core with a minimal impact . when before Jerry The Lakers seem like a favori to land Lebron and Jerry reverses the trend. History had told us ego can be a problem to society , Just ask Jim Buss he will tell you. it only pays if you find yourself on the good side. Any thing on the bad side may be so destructive , I do not know if it worth a try. Time will tell. They better get it right. I do not know if the Lakers fans will accept another 5 years of waiting and being deceived. Let hope they truly know what they are doing. In the past ego has proven to be the root cause of all problems.
Lakers nation. The Lakers may actually get worse without Lu William their best score, their bread and butter from the Bench. The man who saved them so many times. If that Happened that will be demoralizing. I do not think the Lakers can afford to get worse. The last time I check , Magic Johnson said The Lakers are one start away from becoming competitive. And magic Johnson was A saler to bring one in. I do not see the trade of Lu William bringing the Lakers a star They so Seek. I do not see the Lakers beating golden State any time soon. So what the Rush. All we are asking for the Lakers at this time is Improvement. We the fans want to see Improvement not taking chances that may make the matter worse. we didnt see the fruit of Trading Steve Black. There is no reason to believe trading Lu William will Improve things. All The gossip of Trading Players has done to the Lakers is Upset Players for them not To want to play for The Lakers. We have seen it with Gasol. Players refusing to come to the Lakers upset because the Lakers didnt treat Them well while they were here. They Missed on Whiteside as soon as they turn out good with another team suddenly they want them back. All we are asking you is to be patient and improve at This Point. Stop listening to all the craps from outsiders and people who do not like the Lakers and do not want to see them Improve. Since the passing of Jerry Buss The Lakers have turn into a team with no direction. Jerry West Can store part of that in a limited role base on his age. we all Know what He had done over the years with teams. There is At least confidence there instead of saying we have to move to a new Blood not the past The same mistake the Lakers made refusing to hire Phil Jackson That turn the team into a saga Part of the reason why they are in this mess in the first Place and still having problem to understand it Continu to read
“West spoke to Durant from the perspective of an all-time great player who kept falling short of winning an NBA championship, ” ESPN’s Chris Broussard reported Sunday afternoon. “While West won a title with the Los Angeles Lakers in 1972, he lost his first 7 trips to the NBA Finals and finished 1-8 in the Finals overall. West, 78, told Durant those losses still eat at him to this day, according to sources.”
“West also told Durant that playing alongside the Warriors’ star trio of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green would make it much easier on him,” the ESPN report continued. “West opined that in Oklahoma City, most of Durant’s shot attempts are difficult and contested.” continu to read
