What do you think I was referring to? Have I ever, ever been on Steve's side?
Good article, but if the Lakers trade Bynum+ for Paul who plays center? Gasol? No.
If they trade Bynum+ for Howard, who plays PG? I don't know, but a great center is not easy to find.
I think they have to go for Howard over Paul.
Then again, apparently they "have shown significant interest" in Jason Kapono, so what do I know?
God is on my side. That is all that matters.
D12 in LA would be awesome.
yes for sure... trade who to get him?
That's like saying trade jordan LOL!!!
here's my outlandish prediction: Danny Ainge just say's: "fuck it lets try to win this year with this old assed unit" and still does a trade for CP3 one season rental for rondo (+assets). The hornets get rondo (whos got a great contract) and don't lose too much face.
might as well push all your chips in with one last run. because:
from there the 2012- 2013 contracts for the celtics all fall off and they only have literally to pay two players: Paul Pierce at $16mill and Avery Bradley $1.6 million. Thats it only two players under contract for 2012. http://hoopshype.com/salaries/boston.htm
from there they can start over and have max money to sign two type A free agents perpetuating a newer "big three" with whom is still available... CP3/D. Howard/ect.
Hah, that is going to be a big bet on your side since Kobe, CP3 & Dwight are arguably the 3 best in their position right now and the odds certainly isn't in my favor.
With the short season and given how free agency is going to pan out for the C's after this year, something crazy like that certainly could happen. I'd hate to see Rondo go though and I really don't think that CP3 would give us the boost we need to make a last championship run. We really need some size in the middle.
Kobe can't/couldn't pack Jordan's lunch. And yes I know Jordan has proved to be an even bigger asshole.
I'm old and feeble minded. I need a free bet every once in a while.
I thought you Lakerheads would find this interesting.
A. The NBA owns the Hornets;
B. New Orleans can't support a mediocre to bad basketball team.
C. The Hornets could be sold for hundreds of millions to an ownership group that would move the franchise.
D. The team would be easier to move if it were so terrible that no one in NOLA went to games.
E. The NBA would like to see popular, superstars in big markets
A--E means the owners of the Hornets benefit from dealing Paul in a horrible one-sided trade with Knicks or Lakers, the more one-sided the trade the likelier the big market team will go deep in the playoffs and the bigger the Hornets will tank. Expect to see Paul for Artest trade.
Wait how about 3-team: Bynum and Lamar to Orlando, Howard and Paul to LA, Arenas, Hedo, Artest, Walton and Blake to NO.
If Chris Paul gets traded to the Lakers in another ridiculous Gasol-type of deal, there will be no question in my mind that David Stern runs the league any way he wants to maximize profits.
There's always something that seems a bit too fairytale-ish about what happens in the NBA, just not as obvious as pro-wrestling. Just a few in recent memory.
#1 pick goes to Cleveland (and the "good luck" kid) after lebron debacle
