Bill Simmons wrote an excellent piece lately where he gave the Los Angeles Lakers the blueprint to rebuild their franchise in one short year. He begrudgingly did this as the Boston Sports Guys, but he also mentioned that Jim Buss is basically the real life Tommy Boy and that he would screw everything up next year much as he screwed things up last year.
Lakers will be a 45 win team……. and totally miss out on the Andrew Wiggins sweepstakes .

Personally, I think Kobe Bean Bryant will be back sooner than people give him credit for and though he will not be as good as last year, Bryant will be good enough to play the Lakers out of high lottery position. Instead the Lakers will either slip into the 7 or 8 seed, or possibly even miss the playoffs for the first time I can remember in some time.
@Joey_Balcom3 If we get Andrew wiggins ima be so hype. Need somebody of that skill set to go along with what will be a Veteran Rondo

Wiggins is a special player and he deserves a special team, but that does not necessarily always happen for the team with the first pick in the draft.
"@CL_Blessed14: What if Andrew Wiggins & Jabari Parker don't enter the draft next year…"first we have to see what they'll do in college il
