Lakers are not a world class organization. Ever since they signed that half human Artest, I knew the Lakers were losing their hold as a well-respected and professionally-run organization. The manner in which they played Phil was very indicative of how poorly their organization is run.
No doubt they should have signed Ariza who they never made in offer to instead of that clown know as Metta. What a joke. 11 time champion Phil was not hired, instead they got this weirdo Mike D.
Without Artest they would have never beaten Boston in the Finals. When it comes playoff time Artest steps up. He isn't my favorite player but he is the least of their problems.
