Possibly, he did orchestrate the Big 3 and signed Battier and Allen. On the other hand, Mitch acquired Dwight and CP3 (though neither worked out) and turned Derek Fisher and Luke Walton into Ramon Sessions and Jordan Hill.

Either way, Jerry West >> both. Got Shaq and Kobe, Marc Gasol and later Z-Bo and didn't he draft Klay Thompson?

Pat did a great job in one summer at free agency and is moving with it.
Mitch always comes up with huge trades and never had cap space or high picks. Last year team didn't work out (mainly because of injuries) but you can't say he didn't make a heck of a job bringing D12 and Nash for Bynum and a trade exception.

This goes without mentioning Ariza for Cook and Mo Evans,Radmanovic for Shannon Brown and Pau for Kwame.

Only moronic Laker homers ever claimed Kupchak was better than Pat Riley. Riley turned an expansion franchise into a multiple champion. He built the Heat from the ground up.

Kupchak pulled off the Gasol trade, which was great. But he's done nothing else worthy of mentioning outside of that. He was living off Jerry West's work for a while up until that.

Pat vs. Jerry West? You can have that conversation. Mitch? Not remotely.
