We entered a contest. Sort of. The guys running the NBA GM FIXIT contest asked us to participate, and being that we are internet whores, we obliged. Craig did most of the work for our entry, which was for the Lakers and will run on their site this Wednesday. Don't worry, if you're like us and have no concept of dates or time, we'll remind you to check it out.
The "sort of" part of the entry is the fact that we're really not that into the technicalities involved in the salary cap, contracts, mid-level exceptions, etc. We prefer just to complain about the problems a given team has, and not offer up any realistic solutions. So it's more accurate to say that we participated in this contest, and expect to finish dead last. We will defend our entry once it's posted, but let's just say the lack of activity in Laker Land over the past two seasons wasn't going to cut it for us.
For the record, we also don't care about the draft, although we're participating in a mock draft as well. Details on that to follow.
