The lakers general manager mitch kupchak speaking, this no doubt is a difficult season. In an interview with USA today, he said since he entered the lakers management 26 years since there has never been a season of difficult compares this season, including the magician because infected with HIV and announced his retirement last Nike Air Max 1 year, and more of the lockout-shortened season (1998-99 season). To kupchak speaking, 26 years, still no season like this season so that make a person feel heavy, and so tortured people. "It's hard to find a recent one and a half season this difficult time," kupchak said. "we also had a difficult time, such as the magician announced that the risk of AIDS, and the last lockout-shortened season, first coach del Harris, then blue, than take over, we have got the virtuous man, with kobe and shaq cooperation, although a good team, but we still can not achieve expected. And this season (the season) is very unique, I had not thought can equate." The offseason introducing Nash and Howard, but into the season, the lakers performance is disappointing. Although the lakers recently showed progress, kupchak described when this season still can only use the word depression. "Depression is a great word," kupchak said. "I don't think who can predict to appear now this situation. We had a lot of different things, including new players, injuries, the new coach, etc. Everything is full of frustration." Then kupchak began to defend Howard, though Howard Nike Air Max i body did not return to the best, suffered a lot of questions, but kupchak but firm support Howard. "I think he should get more praise," kupchak said. "(after back surgery), he doesn't have to so early. He is not in order to return this summer (become a free agent) just like this, because the doctor said, he is a year later can restore health. But he still early return, because he wants to play, he is eager to win. This season, he also suffered a shoulder injury problems, I think he got unfair criticism." "I was surprised, he had participated in the training camp, and not miss any one training session." Kupchak said, "I this because he will be in December or return in November. I'm not sure that he can return so early, but I think people to his expected too much, and lack of patience."

Since the all-star weekend later, about kobe Bryant and Howard has spoken out about narrative, kupchak more talk about is the dressing room, "for me, the equation is very difficult, we are to win more ball. If you don't win, so in the locker room won't full of pleasant atmosphere, think that these players are all very strong competitive spirit. In our dressing room, money is not influence factors of atmosphere, so we don't have to play the contract guy. These guys are eager to win. If you don't win, it will create a problem." "For us, in order to enter the playoffs, then we have to play very good level. And if entered the playoffs, that means we play well. By that time, we are willing to tell anyone in the series competition. I think, in a 7 game 4 - system series, the team can win. I really think so. But for now, we must find the method to the Cheap Nike Air Max 90 playoffs."According to the Los Angeles media reports, just four months ago, the lakers are still in the fantasy team history 17 champions, but now they mouth say most is "the playoffs," it makes the lakers star before shark o 'neal disagree, he thinks the lakers think should be the title.
