    Must have missed the part where the Lakers have potential or a future.

    Guess drafting busts now accounts for potential.

    Yeah, its a farewell tour.last time we'll see him chuck up crazy shots. Bittersweet. My favorite player ever is Magic, BTW. I didn't get a farewell tour for him.

    Russell looks very good. I don't expect a year one all-star. He is the high ceiling guy, and I see it. Very happy.

    Byron Scott is a problem. Serious problem. Both he and Kobe will be gone next season. Randke and Russell on the bench is ludicrous, but scott has proven to be inept.

    I see the future, not the present. This team makes me happy. Young studs and $25 mill in freed up money, and a new coach. And if they keep the suck going, a top 3 pick. I'm not sad...didn't expect much but I'm looking for flashes and I see em.

    Yeah Russell looks amazing, high ceiling. /s

    I'd take Warren and Booker over Russell and Randle anyday and twice on Sunday.

    Mayhaps you didn't see his game tonight?

    Rookies dude. 19 years old.

    Besides, you are a suns fan. Your argument is irrelevant. Warren and Booker. Loeffingl.

    He shot 40% and had basically no blocks, no steals, no rebounds and no assists in 30+ minutes. I am impressed.

    Booker btw is younger than Russell.

    I'd take Russell forever over Booker. C'mon man.

    You are looking for stat sheets. I am looking at playmaking ability. I am pleased. This is a guy that in two years will be satisfying your stat sheet requirements.

    I heard that Scott is benching Randle and Russell to protect them from Kobe. It was on the radio. Scott feels that Kobe is playing more selfish than ever and teaching the kids bad habits and is stunting their growth.

    not only that, but for anyone who says they're "enjoying" the Kobe Bryant Fat Elvis Vanity Project, they're just proving themselves to be the biggest sycophant known to man. Even Jerry West, the biggest Kobe Bryant fan EVER says watching Kobe is SAD and PAINFUL to watch.

    I'll just be glad when he is gone. Been counting down for years. Wish he had just been kicked to the curb when his last deal ran out. He has raped this team for money and scared away free agents. He has done far more harm than good in recent years for the team, but then again he has always been a very selfish individual.

    Kobe averaging 18/5/4 on 47% shooting in his last 5 games.

    Props to him if he can sustain that at this age and coming off 3 major surgeries.

    Is that worth $25 million? I don't think so. Not even close. He single-handedly killed the franchise for several years. What an accomplishment. :rolleyes:

    I am sure DDogg is like many of the Lakers fans I've seen today on facebook praising Kobe's game last night and his one big dunk over a defender.

    Me? I'm like - We LOST by 20 points. Who cares what Kobe did? SMH.
