Caught in the Web: More exit interview links and draft previews

A quick housekeeping note: There will be a live chat during the draft beginning at 4:30 p.m., although I won't be participating in it. I'll be at the Lakers' facility getting coverage from their end, and I'm sure you guys will be able to hold it down.

Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak provided a quick assessment in the video below of the draft, with the team holding two second-round selections (43rd and 58th overall).

Reader Comment of the Day: "Thinking about PJ leaving makes me puke in my mouth. HOWEVER - I have confidence about a couple of things - the FO wants to win more championships, the FO doesn't want to waste any of Kobe's years, the FO will do what it takes to succeed. I have no idea HOW the FO will do this. I just know they will. Or there will be trouble. With a capital T. -- justanothermambafan

WOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

I'd like to thank all the little people that made this day possible for me.....

LOL!! Thanks Marky Mark!


My stomach feels sick at the thought of no Phil.

B Shaw or B Scott? Scott, no question.

GO LAKERS!!
WIN OR LOSE I LOVE YOU!
BUT I PREFER YOU WIN!!!

Now Utah has Gordon Hayward...They have no plans on resigning Korver...

Korver has a sweet jump shot...We need someone deadly on the perimeter...

I think Korver would be a great pick up...He would have to take a big paycut...

Just wishing...

I say we keep Kobe, Pau, Bynum, Artest, Fisher, Odom, & Brown. The other players can go.

It looks like Cole Aldrich will be going to the Thunder via trade from Hornets...

That gives Thunder their big man they are missing...

What out for this young Thunder team...

They will be giving us some stiff competition for the next coming years...

Does anybody know why there isn't any reference to a Josh Powell exit interview?
