The Lakers are a shell of the organization they once were.
Gone are star studded names, and in their places are journeyman, and players who are a long way away from being star players.
The Lakers will add the new cast of characters, to the already declining games of Pau Gasol and Steve Nash. Nash and Gasol are box office in name only at this point in their careers.
All of those components will end up meshing with the return of Kobe Bryant from an Achilles injury at some point. Tracy McGrady has been keeping track of this version of Showtime from afar, and he isn’t impressed.
McGrady took to Twitter to point out just how bad he feels for Kobe, after watching one of the Lakers recent preseason performances.
