Ahh.... nice to see jet's well thought out commentary back in this thread.
He did have more than a 4 word post a while back. But I bet someone translated and typed it for him.
The Spurs didn't trade Manu Ginobili for a 6th round draft pick.
lakers baby lakers.
That's right bitches.
Lakers are trying again to pick up Chris Paul. It looks they still need a third team to make it happen.
Would Bynum, Gasol, and the Mavs 1st round draft pick be worth Paul and Emeka Okafor?
Yes, over paying in fact.
i would say no. if you think about their original trade, they were essentially just trading gasol for paul. because as we found out later, trading odom was just a salary dump. in the original trade, they traded out $25M and took back $16M and still ended up with the best player in the deal.
so now with this new deal, they're trading more and saving less. if you have to give up pau and bynum, i'd rather do it for howard.
edit: i was looking at this from the lakers perspective and if it was worth it for them to make that trade. but yeah, they'd be overpaying.
also, if the nets end up getting howard for a paltry gerald wallace + brook lopez combo then the lakers would have to be kicking themselves. that's just highway robbery. shit, if i was rebuilding a team, i'd rather just have bynum alone than gerald wallace + brook lopez.
Not sure if cereal.
totally cereal. if rebuilding, gerald wallace is completely superfluous and bynum's ceiling is higher than lopez's. obviously, bynum is more of a gamble. but if i'm rebuilding, what do i have to lose? (except my job as a GM.)
edit: then again, if i can flip gerald wallace for some draft picks, then that route might be worth it.
I'd take Wallace & Lopez base on Bynums history alone. Lopez is a bonafide 20/8 guy, healthy is a year younger than Bynum. Wallace was averaging 18/10 himself at one point w/ the Bobcats and can easily get 16/8 in any team, a forward that can steal and block and out hustle any player on the court. So I would take those two than the immature, idiotic, injury prone Bynum.
i just think the ceiling is so much higher for bynum. lopez seems like the classic case of putting up numbers on a bad team. those 20 points have to come from somewhere. he averaged just 6 rebounds a game last year in 35 mins per game. and he's a 7 footer! then again, at least he played 35 mins a game.
also, i thought gerald wallace was like 32. turns out he's only 29 (but he's been in the league for 10 years.) i still think he's a great player to have on a contender, but pretty useless if i'm rebuilding.
think of it this way, if i'm the lakers and i was offered lopez and wallace for bynum, i would definitely take it. but if i'm starting from scratch, i'd rather have bynum.
