You know, I haven't commented on the drama with the Lakers since they lost to the Pistons. But this whole thing with Shaq being traded is really dis-heartening. Eric Neel captured my thoughts pretty well in this article.
I've always liked Shaq more than Kobe. While the argument that the Lakers should get something for Shaq while he's still worth something on the trade market, but you know what? He's still Shaq. It's not worth trading away a franchise. Jerry Buss and Mitch Kupchak are taking this franchise down a path that doesn't make me smile.
I'll always love the Lakers, but this is just making me shake my head even more. I did enough of that during this past season and during the playoffs and being a life-long fan, head-shaking isn't a fun thing.
