Joy to the World

In late May, after L.A. was bounced by the OkiDogs, the future looked grim: age, no bench, no perimeter game, salary-capped out, disgruntled players, an increasingly frustrated and domineering superstar, a shaky head coach. What Laker fan could possibly have imagined we would be glorying in the greatest off-season by a General Manager in NBA history? Getting Steve Nash for nothing, keeping Pau Gasol, keeping Metta World Peace, re-signing Jordan Hill, signing Antawn Jamison, adding Jodie Meeks. And now -- Dwight has arrived.

Mitch Kupchak for President! Bill Simmons with a funny, and honorable (considering he's a Celtics Freak), appreciation.
