One of the best design rules to understand is when to scrap a design and start over. The Lakers management need to learn that lesson.
Perhaps the best part of hating the Lakers, and specifically Kobe Bryant, is that in a league where "tanking" is thrown around quite often, the Lakers will never clean house and start fresh. They always believe that they are one piece away from a championship. That hubris is exactly why Lakers fans should be prepared for heaping scoops of mediocrity until Kobe retires.
