And the only true center in 2012 team is Chandler....and I'm sure Robinson and Ewing wouldn't have a problem doing their thing against Tyson.

Those centers can score too while Chandler is simply a defensive specialist. Those two would destroy Chandler.

As the wing, Pippen could take care of both Lebron & Durant. Pip is pretty damn long and fast for his size too. Keep in mind the 92 Dream Team are much more physical too. The players today would cry for flagrant everytime those guys would give them some love tap.

'12 team has a bunch of known floppers, whereas dream team has a bunch of killers. No contest.

That's why owners don't want to send their players.

Especially not ones that just signed an extension!

Wow...rockets just used amnesty on Scola.....now they have cap room to absorb all of orlando's shit. I'm pretty sure deal will go down

Lakers should pick up Scola. He'll be great once they get rid of Pau

Does Dwight have no say?

Fuck Dwight. He needs to come over and be Kobe and Steve's bitch for a while.

I don't get amnestying Scola, isn't he a better trade bait? I mean wouldn't the Magic benefit from just talking him via trade? I mean it seems like it's just to clear cap space but Scola is a good player and the Magic could use him especially with all the guys they are getting rid of.

It clears the way for the Rockets to absorb not only Howard, but Hedo Turkoglu, Jason Richardson, Glen Davis, Chris Duhon, nearly any combination of bad long-term cap holds. The Rockets are in position to take any and all contract trash the Magic wish to dispose of. They also have picks. They also have three rookies.

Rockets looking real desperate right now.


And sadly, the Lakers cannot get Scola as teams with below cap are the ones who gets first dibs and you know damn well everyone will bidding like crazy for him. I see Dallas making a run at him. Clippers too but it would seem like a waste to bench him though he'd be great from there.

Like I said, they are very desperate. They admitted that they didn't care if Dwight or Bynum promises to re-sign. I guess they feel that once they are in Houston that they can convince them to stay.

Bleah. Typing on phone sucks. I meant if magic decides to trade him to rockets does Dwight get to say no?

Also dude is a 12 year old in a 12 foot 200 whatever lb body. My 6th grade cousin is more mature than him
post #8654 of 27236
do you guys remember when he came into the league portrayed as this humble, mature kid who was deeply religious and has no ego? lol
