The Lakers, who currently stand in 14th place in the Western Conference with a 22-44 record, were officially the first team to be eliminated from playoff contention after Friday night’s loss against the San Antonio Spurs.

The franchise will look to move forward by starting this off-season with the 2014 NBA Draft. The Lakers will be guaranteed at least a top-10 pick. The Lakers are rarely in this position, but the last time they had a lottery pick, Los Angeles drafted Andrew Bynum.

    West sounded like a disapproving parent in assessing Bryant, Magic and other Lakers greats strategy to question Lakers management publicly.

    “I really don’t want to get into that. But if I were a player I would never say a word,” West said. “You’d like things to be like they were before. But time changes everything. Leadership changes everything. Jerry Buss was a great leader, but he also had the benefit of having some incredible players. They don’t have that kind of talent there today. People should let them try to rework this franchise and give them the opportunity without the constant criticism.”

    Dr. Buss said the same thing back in 2005.

    West pleaded patience surrounding the Lakers’ struggles that include a missed playoff appearance, an injury-riddled roster and an embattled coach in Mike D’Antoni.

    “This is not the most talented team I’ve seen. But this team has played really hard this year,” said West, who has had a consulting role with the Golden State Warriors for the past three seasons. “It’s easy to criticize when you’re on the sidelines to criticize. It’s easy for fans, particularly players and ex-players to rant and criticize everything they do over there. But it doesn’t help.”

    West again went in on the hype of this draft class in this interview and how tanking is not the way to rebuild a team right away. If you want to hear the words from the Logo, you can by searching….

      “It’s easy to criticize when you’re on the sidelines to criticize.”

      Fans, pundits and ex players need to meditate on that. Deep statement by the Logo

    • Saydikinz Borda

      Kobe had every right to say what he wants. He’s the star of our franchise. West left the Lakers. He should stfu!!

      • Daryl Peek

        West knows more about building a winning team than Kobe could dream of. And just because you can say something doesn’t mean it’s the wise thing to do.
