Nice letter. I agree with pretty much everything you said. Our future will look be a lot better once we resign CP3.

As far as the Lakers future, In 2014, the Lakers will have a lot of Salary Cap space because Pau, Kobe, and MWP's ridiculous contracts come off the books. Kobe won't be asking for $30 million. If he does not retire, he will take a pay cut. And unfortunately, somehow the Lakers always get good players.

So our future looks better for now and only if we resign CP3.

I also think it will be extremely hard to outshine them historically.

If Kobe doesn't retire after next season, he will most certainly take a paycut for a 1-2 year deal to give it 1 last push. I honestly think if he's genuine about wanting to retire on top, he may only do 1 year deals. I think he also cares about the Laker franchise and he wouldn't want to screw them by taking a ton of cash and they can't make a run at good free agents or potential trades because of his big contract.

Just want also to express what's in my mind. Kobe will try to play side by side with CP3 before he retires and accepts a paycut just to have a happy ending of his career. I just hope CP3 will re-sign with us. Smile

I would love to read it but with no paragraphs it's unreadable.

As well please use standard writing conventions. It's annoying to C U guys write this gibberish. While I try to read it because guys have good ideas I often ignore stuff like that and stuff all in lower case. Are there any females on this post?

English writing conventions are reel hard fore people who lived over sees. Yew can knot find the wright word if ewe were born abroad. It sleighs me it's sow funny. The farmer tried to sow a crop of corn but the sow eight it.

yes folks U can C english makes sense ( I could say cents but they are actually pronounced differently.)

I don't know about Kobe taking a paycut. Sure if the Lakers are the only game in town who can pay him the most then yes. He's a very selfish player and a very selfish individual. I always thought that 30 mil. was outrageous for him. He's not on Jordan nor Lebron's level.

Jordan, Lebron, Magic, Bird, Hakeem, Kareem teams would never have had this poor of showing heading into the end of the year. Dude is the most overrated 5 ring player in NBA history.

I've given props when props is due but there was a couple things I didn't agree with. Historically, yes the lakers are better. But currently, the clippers are way better. It's hard to tell if over time, the success of the clippers will be enough to overshine the success the lakers built, but it's possible I guess. As for Dwight, even if we don't make the playoffs, I'm still 100% confident he's going no where, he would lose too much. Lastly, yes the clippers are rising and the lakers are dying but that doesn't mean the lakers are going to stay dead lol. The fans won't let it, we're too spoiled. On top of that, time Warner cable probably won't let it either because they didn't agree to a big contract for a team who is going to stay dead and not win a couple more championships within the next 20 years lol. But I agree with the fact that you guys deserve more respect. Enjoy the success.

^ Still, 11 has us in a pretty deep hole. I dont think our "history" will ever look better, but our future and present do.

And I am of the mind set that we dont need to hang our division banner in Staples. It doesnt add to our franchise to hang it there. Hang it in the practice facility where the players see it every day and use that as motivation to get the only banners that matter.

Hahahahahahahaha. This is sports, where your team is the best and every other team sucks. I'm mad at you talking trash about my team and I'm going to write you an angry letter to let you know just how mad I am. Who cares what Laker fans think? I didn't care what they told me about my loyalties when we were a laughing stock, and I certainly don't care now.

I took the liberty of reblogging it so I could help (and in my reblog I fixed the typo in the opening paragraph - Clipper francise, also I think wake-up call should have a hiphen, and isn't 'fan base' supposed to be altogether?).

Yeah, not bad but.. how many people would care about it, honestly? Question

(And I don't mean to rain on the parade, that's not my intention. Parades are fun - unless you're actually trying to go somewhere. Then it's simply a bunch of avenues blocked off by people who are satisfied just to be out in the sun. wink )

I dont think we have to get 16 championships for our history to outshine the lakers

we live in a world of generations

the current young generation loves blake more then they love kobe tbh... we just have to remain a true contender and win a couple titles in the process and 5- 10 yrs from now no one will be talking this history stuff

same way that alot of young kids think kobe is better than jordan... well the younger kids say lebron is better than both lol those are the kids that will acknowledge the clippers in the future

whats sad is that if this was any other franchise we would feel sympathy for their troubles this year, but historically the have had so many a****** on that team that you cant help but be happy at their misfortunes. For years they raped small market teams by taking away away their best players so its only fair for them to have a little misfortune
