Lakers GM Initiates “Order 66” Following Lakers Loss to the Thunder
Following his team’s horrendous elimination from the playoffs, Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak reportedly initiated “Order 66”. “When you reach a new low like we have done today, you know it is time for change. That’s why I am initiating this order immediately,” Kupchak said in an interview following last night’s loss to the Thunder. “Order 66”, which Kupchak claims he did not steal from Star Wars Episode III but rather George Lucas stole it from him, will eliminate all worthless players from the Lakers roster by trading them to the worst teams in the league. When asked who would be affected by this order, Kupchak responded, “Pau Gasol, (Andrew) Bynum, Ramon Sessions, and some other worthless players.” The Charlotte Bobcats, who set a new record for the worst season in NBA history this year, released a statement saying they were very excited to hear of “Order 66” being initiated and they KNOW the Lakers players are as well.
