With the Los Angeles Lakers (probably) on the verge of their second consecutive second-round ouster, another offseason of uncertainty looms.
It stands to reason that Andrew Bynum or Pau Gasol (or both) will be shipped out the door to bring new life to a squad that's spent much of this postseason seemingly on cruise control. It has also been theorized (by Magic Johnson of all people) that coach Mike Brown could be a one-and-done candidate. (Hey, I hear a certain 11-time NBA champion coach "has the itch" again.)
And then there's Dwight.
But before we get to the offseason, there needs to be a fresh round of blame to be passed out for this season's failure. For me, the blame always starts at the top and works its way down to the bottom. So let's get this blamefest started with the reasons Bryant is to blame for the Lakers' impending ouster.
