08:09 AM ET 02.21 | Kobe Bryant spoke up for Pau Gasol, hoping aloud recently that the Lakers might bring some clarity to his teammate's future. [The] real motivation behind Bryant going public was to shed light on the dysfunctional, borderline comical way the Lakers are handling their basketball business. ... So here it is: The Lakers' front office is an uncommunicative, rudderless fiasco, and the unrest and paranoia that have been festering for years threaten to derail the team's plans to ride Bryant to his sixth NBA title while they still can. And much of it can be traced to the growing influence of executive vice president Jim Buss, the owner's bon vivant son, who has helped transform a great franchise into a steaming pool of nepotism and nincompoops.

The Lakers will be fine.... All they Need is a Point Guard, Like Arenas then they need to amnesty somebody, Like Walton or MWP, To Have Cap Space for a Reasonable FA.... But they really need a PG that Can run the team and score when the wings are lacking production...
