They were, and still are, a cocky franchise that believes All-Star free agents will eventually come to their senses, realize Los Angeles is actually Heaven on Earth, take their money and make everything better again.

In lieu of collecting assets and allocating money to young talent, they got engaged to Nick Young and Carlos Boozer and gave up 230 points a night. The Lakers' "analytics pitch" doesn't exist. Instead, they probably told Aldridge that playing for the Lakers used to be rad, and if he signed a four-year, $80 million contract it'd be rad once again.

Here's the scene: Owner Jim Buss slowly removes his flat-brimmed Dodgers hat, points up at Southern California's cloudless, ocean blue sky, then leans in for dramatic effect and softly whispers "Wanna go to the beach?" Buss brags all about Hollywood, the industry and how filming Vitamin Water commercials in Culver City will do wonders for his brand. "Picture yourself guest starring on an episode of '2 Broke Girls' or eating spaghetti with Robert Pattinson. I know people."

But Aldridge is, of course, a basketball player, which was a minor detail the Lakers either didn't realize or preferred to ignore. They spent the past half-decade tuning out the same competitive advantages that the NBA's 29 other organizations aggressively accepted, and it's finally come back to bite them in the ass.

If Aldridge didn't want to take a backseat to Damian Lillard on a borderline title contender in Portland, he obviously doesn't want to be the sidekick to a 37-year-old Kobe on a team that has no chance of making the playoffs.


The Lakers still don't have enough self-awareness to realize they no longer hold unique incentives when free agency rolls around. Everybody has cap space, and players can make a ton of money no matter where they play. But the Lakers are still acting like the Blockbuster Video of the NBA ("Netflix is definitely a fad, there's nothing to see here.")

How would insulting his team discount how stupid yours is? That's the definition of losing.

Nah man this isn't hate out of jhealousy, this is people kicking you when you're down, because you had no chill when you were on top a hundred years ago.

Nobody talks about how other teams take years and even decades to rebuild. But even though the Lakers won a title just 5 years ago and are in their rebuilding phase that every team has to go through eventually, all of a sudden they're the joke of the NBA. Strong everything

This is new and interesting. I just lol @ all of the hate phaggots acting like they didn't win back to back 5-6 years ago which is more than most teams have won in their history. The Lakers have rarely had to be down like this because they've always made a trade or drafted someone good. This is basically the first time they've had to rebuild since forever while all these other teams have been rebuilding and trying to win a championship since then. They'll go through this rebuild just like most other teams and they'll be back eventually.

Lol @ a celtics fan talking **** they've won like one championship in the past 20+ years. They only have one more than the Lakers but the Lakers have easily been the better franchise and have won more consistently throughout the years.

Who cares who goes where the only thing that matters is championships and the Lakers have won way more than the celtics in the past 5-20 years. Btw you're acting like the celtics aren't in the Leastern conference and the Lakers aren't in the Bestern conference.

Celtics win a chip before the lakers do again. Book it.

you're doing nothing right. your franchise is worthless and will continue to be until the rapist retires. SRS.


no one is coming to LA to be second fiddle to a broken down rapist who will take as many shots as possible to score 20 points and then explain his behavior by using horrible analogies about purses being stolen.

bears - 1 super bowl
patriots - 4


bears were invented 41 years before the patriots(1919 v. 1960), the celtics were invented a year before the lakers (1946 v 1947).
