Harrell was thrown under the bus (as in Jeannie Buss). He became the whipping boy for the incapacities of others, just like last year with the Clippers. In the playoffs, Harrell should have got the minutes given to Kuzma. If anybody is to blame for the Lakers demise in the playoffs, it is Kuzma, but he is the love child of Jeannie. KCP is also responsible for the Lakers playoff failure. But their failures pale in comparison to the incompetency of Jeannie and Pelinka. They are the ones that granted the ridiculous exorbitant extensions to Kuzma and KCP. Blame Vogel all you want, but he was coaching under the demands of Jeannie, Pelinka and Rich Paul to give Kuzma and KCP more minutes than their performance deserved. Lakers need new management. Jerry Buss was one of the greatest owners of all-time. Jeannie, not so much.
