Derek Anderson and the Lakers - What went wrong.

Anderson offered the Lakers a younger (31), more athletic option, averaging 9.2 points last season in Portland, although he missed 66 games in his last two seasons there.

However, the Lakers weren't convinced he was the defender and leader they wanted. Anderson is known as sunny and likable but his attitude was questioned by people in Portland. He reportedly didn't take it as a compliment when the Lakers asked him about it during his visit here two weeks ago.

Last week for the first time, the Lakers contacted McKie's agent, Rose. Until then, McKie had been expected to take a $1.1-million offer to back up Vince Carter in New Jersey.

By then, Anderson was reportedly leaning toward the Rockets, who could offer him only $1.7 million but made him feel he was the player they wanted.

The same thing that happened one Christmas in my family when my little sister said "I want a pony".

I think those 66 games misses plus his overall history for getting injured had a lot to do with the Lakers going for the other guy.

That's a no no in LA.

I think Jackson didn't really want him.

I read somewhere that DA was offended by the Lakers questioning him about his attitude from past teams to see where he stood.

Then again, as I have said many times, DA didn't choose, the Lakers did.

McKie fits the Ron Harper role for Jackson. DA would be more like BJ Armstrong.

DA is a good guy off the court, but his on court demeanor is not cool.

A friend was a waitress for DA several years back. He didn't tip. Not cool! And no, it wasn't at IHOP.

I am not sure whether it is Lakers that did not want DA, or DA decided to play for Rockets. This article mentioned that Lakers know about DA's decision on last Friday.

I don't know why but this little character weakness is probably why DA has never reached his full potential.

NBA players get picked on and criticized every day of the week - now more than ever with the internet. If you can't ignore all that and focus on the game how can you really excel?

Well there's only room for one head case player on the Lakers. Kobe is enough to deal with on and off the court, with the two of them they could end up fighting eachother during a game due to *****ing at eachother about all the bad shots they take.
