    Is the asterisk because of the shortened season or because of the fact that Golden State is going to be a playoff team this year?

    The Mike Brown era, YAY!

    Anyway, it's been so long that I had forgotten Andrew Bynum is suspended for the first 5 games of the year. So he won't be playing until 2012.

    Also, the new luxury tax system looks nasty. It starts in 2 years, but combine that with the Jim Buss era, the Lakers may never be the Lakers again.

    Yeah, I got a bad feeling about Jim Buss and this new system. I think the Lakers will always be a storied franchise because of where they are and the history behind them but the new luxury tax will definitely change how things are done in LA.

    Well, here comes a new perspective. Mark Heisler, former NBA columnist of the LA Times, says that this new deal is actually GREAT for the Lakers.

    Why? Next year, the Lakers start they HUGE TV deal with Time Warner. He says the Lakers no average $30-$40 million in profits, but the TV deal will push them to $150 million in yearly profits. He has a source that says that could actually be as much as $170 million per year.

    Forbes said that the Knicks led the league in profits with $64 million in 09/10. The Lakers, with this new deal, will double the profits of the next-closest team.

    He also says that the Lakers, when they hit the market, will be willing to offer Bynum for Howard, who wants to come to LA, and Gasol for CP3 or Deron Williams.

    And unlike the other teams, they will have the money to pay the nasty taxes.

    Well, if the Lakers are going to double the next-closest team in yearly profits, that leaves them a lot of room, despite the new taxes.

    But yes. Adelman, JVG, BShaw--all would have been better choices. I mean, I can't for the life of me get why Jim Buss hates Jackson so much.

    BShaw came out later and said that Jerry called him and said pretty much that Brown was Jim's guy and that if he's gonna get Jim ready to run the team, then he had to let him make a decision. Kupchak wanted Adelman.

    But I don't get it. The triangle and Jackson's staff got you 5 championships in 11 seasons and you want to dismantle everything about it?

    Maybe Brown's time with the Spurs will have made him better than we're giving credit for.

    Brett: what do you think about the Lakers trading Bynum for Howard and Gasol for CP3/Deron Williams?

    Not more then a casual NBA these days, but I am interested in if there is a bunch of player movement coming up.

    Trades are always fun and there sounds like a big free agent market as well.

    Any other big rumors going around?

    ++++

    Locally in Norcal, it will be fun to see if "Jimmer Mania" takes off at all. Not sure what kind of playing time he will get right away?

    Also how in the world is Jimmer gonna fit in with guys like Cousins or Evans. Talk about guys from different worlds.

    Most likely the Kings are gonna crash and burn and be moving out of town by this time next year. Lots of Arena plans, but nothing set in stone.
