Happy Presidents Day, everyone. I hope you've enjoyed a nice afternoon of mattress-shopping and not being at work. To cap off this most cherished holiday, we have Game 32 of the Lakers' season for you. Just moments ago Mitch Kupchak addressed Kobe's and Pau's trade-rumor complaints as follows:
As a former player, I understand how the days leading up to the trade deadline can be nerve-wracking for an NBA player. Nonetheless, as General Manager of the Lakers, I have a responsibility to ownership, our fans and the players on this team to actively pursue opportunities to improve the team for this season and seasons to come. To say publicly that we would not do this would serve no purpose and put us at a competitive disadvantage. Taking such a course of action at this time would be a disservice to ownership, the team and our many fans.
Right then. Have yourself some liquid refreshment whenever someone mentions:
- Greg Oden and microfracture in the same sentence,
- Gerald Wallace's athleticism,
- Whether Nate McMillon's job is in jeopardy,
- The Lakers' upcoming back-to-back in Dallas and Oklahoma City, or
- What the hell... the Oscars.
Your comment section awaits.
