    Default Jerry West says Lakers are too old

    http://sports.espn.go.com/los-angele...ory?id=6053767

    West says the Lakers are "long in the tooth," and it's hurting them defensively. Phil Jackson agrees they're old and it's starting to show in their speed, which is affecting their defense.

    If they want to get younger and faster, I suggest we trade McRoberts, Lance Stephenson, and TJ Ford for Kobe.

    Or Brandon Rush for Ron Artest

    Oh, and since they're concerned about defense, Dunleavy plays really good team defense, so maybe they'd want him too.

    before anyone gets the wrong idea, I posted this for a little fun because our season has taken such a crappy turn. I obviously don't expect any of that stuff to happen.

    Seems more like they are playing possum to me. I don't expect anything less than another finals appearance from the Lakers.

    I'm not buying it one bit, and I'm sure the players aren't either.

    Better to say old than to constantly say your players suck and could do better.
    Offseason

    Likes:
    The entire draft. Love the picks of Turner, Young and trading for Christmas.
    Signing Glen Robinson III
    Trading for Budinger
    Signing Monta Ellis
    Signing Jordan Hill (not for the player, but for his deal)

    Dislkes:
    Re-signing Stuckey and Allen

    They are acting like an old team. They'll play well when it matters.

    This might be a good way to **** off kobe though. That'll be good for Lakers opponents.
