That meant signing a bunch of guys on 1-yr deals to play with Bron and the young guys and see how they develop. I've said before nobody was beating Golden State this year.
People overreacted to the slow start then overrated to the early success. I figured on us being about a .500 team, obviously Bron's injury and the unexpected AD trade drama dropped us below that. Rich Paul overplayed his hand but when it was out there the Lakers had to give it a shot. I think they underestimated how much other teams hate the Lakers and the last thing they want to do is help us put another banner in the rafters.
