With the new CBA everyone now gets to see if the lakers are really all that good at building a team. In the past they just threw money around, now they're actually going to have to scout talent and become managers.
Ought to be interesting to see how they fare. And those sounds you hear coming out of Connecticut are from the office of espn as they wail and bemoan the fact that their favorite franchises (boston, la, ny) are now down and out.
They're going to have to actually work to provide programming that people want to see.
Since you can't fix stupid, at least you should be able to prosecute it!
