Lakers Nation Agrees: Mitch Kupchak is the Best GM in LA

The LA Times just released their grades for the general managers of Los Angeles’ major sports teams: Lakers, Clippers, Dodgers, Angels, Ducks and Kings. With four championships and counting, there’s no way the other general managers can compare with Mitch’s success, especially after having to follow in the very large footsteps of Jerry West.

Many considered Jerry West one of the best general managers of all time, as he helped shaped Showtime with Magic and Kareem along with the Shaq and Kobe era with his legendary summer of 96. Mitch has followed up with some of his own memorable moves: getting Gary Payton and Karl Malone in 2004 & trading Shaq for as much as he could in Lamar, Brian Grant and Caron Butler.

But we all know that Mitch Kupchak’s defining moment as general manager has been when he traded Kwame Brown, Javaris Crittenton and the rights to Marc Gasol to the Memphis Grizzlies for Pau Gasol. That move instantly catapaulted the Lakers from playoff contenders to a championship team that went to the finals 3 out of four years, winning back to back championships in the process.
