The People of Los Angeles v. Mitchell Kupchak


Dear Dr. Buss,

I know you are getting up there in years and you may not be down with the Internets like us younger folk. But someway, somehow, I hope you get a chance to read this.

On behalf of the diehard P&G faithful, I would like to suggest that it's time for a change in leadership. Mitch Kupchak may be a nice, intelligent man but he is not the right person to be the General Manager of the Los Angeles Lakers.

We've been suffering these past few years Doc. Really suffering. First Chick died, then that Kobe thing, and then the meltdown in the Finals against Detroit. And then the losing. Oh dear God, the losing. All that agonizing, heartbreaking, "what the hell was he thinking? I'm not going to sleep tonight" losing.

Through it all, through all the mindnumbing losses, we've tried to keep the faith. We're not those powdered donuts that you see on the lower level of the Staples Center. We're the guys who listen to the radio shows, post on the boards, buy the jerseys and really put that money into your pocket. We're the ones who hurt after a loss, who watch the grainy Internet feeds and get manic during win streaks.

We're the Lakers fans. We bleed Purple and Gold.

Like Kobe, we had hope that someway, somehow, things could get turned around again and we'd all be dancing down Figueroa doing the Madsen 3 step. But like Kobe, we've had our hearts broken by some really dumb decisions by management. Brian Grant? Vlade Divac? Aaron McKie? Kwame the Kake-throwing Klown?!? (Don't even get me started on the ongoing water torture that is Sasha Vujacic.) Why did we draft Brian Cook instead of Barbosa? Why did we compound our mistake by giving that bad attitude, low-flying matador an extension? Whose idea was it to let Fisher walk [and then bring him back at way too much money], piss-off Payton and then give the starting point guard job for 2 years (2 YEARS!) to Smush Parker? And why, oh why oh why, did we let one of the most annoying Celtics of all time, Danny Frickin' Ainge, punk us over Marcus Banks [and now KG!!!]?

I could go on but you get the point. There are a lot of questions about the moves the front office has made, or failed to make, during these past 3 years. Granted, it's a bit unfair to pin this all on Mitch. But he's the GM. Like any CEO, he's the one who ultimately needs to take responsibility for the bottom line.

You're a Poker player. You know that some dealers give you nothing but junk cards. I don't know when Mitch killed a lephrachan, broke a mirror and walked under a ladder but the guy has some really bad luck. First as a player and now as a GM, the guy is a walking 3-leaf clover! The organization needs some dynamic, daring visionary who will put an end to all of this squabbling and BS and bring the trophy back to Los Angeles.

I know you have high hopes, as any father would, for your son, Jim, but the game is too dynamic and too complex for a latecomer like your son. He's up against guys who have done nothing but eat, sleep and breathe basketball for every waking moment of their lives. You need someone like Bryan Colangelo (or Magic!!!) who seems to have that Midas touch.

Find the hot hand Dr. Buss and then ride the shit out of it. Ditch Mitch. He's suffering under the sort of karmic debt that would make serial killers weep. Hire someone who is willing to make the sort of bold moves that made the Lakers great for all those years.

We're begging you Doc. It's not too late for another dance down Figueroa.

Sincerely,

Magic for GM works for me!

return2glory said...

The case for Magic as GM:

Already a part owner and part of the Lakers family.

Has the trust of Dr. Buss and has the cojones to stand up to the Buss children and Phil.

Unlike Mitch, he has the respect of GMs and players around the league (as well as Kobe).

And as his business ventures have shown, Magic's got a shrewd mind and a good dose of luck.

Oh yeah, the guy knows basketball. Magic's the guy who always stacks his teams during pickup games so he wins. He knows talent. He knows who can ball.

I've edited the original petition to include mention of Magic as Mitch's replacement.

Fire Mitch. Hire Magic as GM. Hire West as a consultant to be Magic's Gandalf. Get back to winning.

Go Lakers!

don't know what the hell he's doing, time to let him go or give him another job within the organization and let someone else step in.

Definitely need somebody different, I don't know who that would be, or how they are gonna get him, but I just know it needs to be somebody other than Mitch at this point, he has failed, might as well cut your losses now and get him out of there and get somebody new in.

Steve Kerr was probably one of the best moves you could have made. Granted, Kupchak tried, but he had the limitations of being one of "jerry's kids" (no offense, bad joke). Your alliance with your son is understandable, but perhaps if you look at him from a business standpoint, instead of a familial one, then you may come to see that he is not ready. I want him to succeed, but I, nor other millions of Laker fans, do not want to suffer during his learning curve. The team is not horrible. Injuries and a bit of bad attitude dragged it down. Rebuild from the top down, not the bottom up (sorry Smush, who gave it his all and was good enough at times).

Laker fan for the last 40 years, and I'm not even 50 yet!

As proud loyal Laker fans we deserve better. Mitch has destroyed this team. I can't figure him out? If he was trying to clear cap space to sign a free agent in 2008 like he said. Why give a non starter like Brian Cook an extension and sign Vlad Rad to an overpaid multiyear contract? Brian Grant and Kwame Brown are two of the biggest underachievers in NBA History. Why take on their contracts? Butler for Kwame, what a joke? How could a team that is lacking in talent be over the cap? Unless the team is carrying to many bad contracts. If that is the case who's fault is that? Fire Mitch!!! Stop him now before he makes anymore of his brilliant moves. Like Trading Lamar Odom for Michael Olowokandi.
