So no Gasol?
So no Gasol?
Wait so the Lakers got Nash Kobe Gasol and Howard?!
I seriously cannot imagine Bynum in a Sixers uni. Someone needs to Photoshop and Iguodala in a Nuggets uni, oh lordy lordy
The West got so much stronger.
So tired of the Lakers...
Being the GM of the Lakers is the easiest job in the NBA.
Wrong details it's
Lakers get Howard
Sixers get Bynum and Jason Richadson
Magic get Affalo, Harrington, Nikola Vucevic, Moe Harkless 1st rd protected from Lakers, Nuggets and Sixers
Nuggets get Iggy
NO GASOL!!!! Dammit
Poor Magic, didnt even get to shed Hedo's contract.
Nash/Kobe/Gasol/Howard? Wow. Lakers just got nasty.. Again. That sucks.
God help us all
Okay it won't happen because stern doesn't own anyone but i would sure like to see one of those "basketball reasons" blocks again.
this is crazy lakers just keep building and building. I'm glad hornets aren't going to be contenders next year but just thinking about Dwight in LA for the next 5 years [potentially if he resigns] is giving me a headache already. I also don't get why a west team would help facilitate this thing, i mean sure dens getting IGGY and becoming a better team but it's like your handing LA more rings..
**** the lakers
So orlando get an average guard in Afflalo, a struggling young player in Vucevic, a past his prime veteran Harrington, a mid lottery pick, and three protected picks from non-lottery teams? + They didnt even get rid of Hedo or Duhon?!?!?! AND they gave up Anderson, aaaaaand they resigned Nelson to a $27 mill deal.... What a great front office. That team is really going places... LOL:D
The Hornets have a lot of potential but there are still many questions aside from Davis developing/filling out his frame. Can Rivers be molded into a point guard? Will Eric Gordon be here for the long haul or will he potentially be traded, moving Rivers to the 2, and finding a 1 elsewhere? Will Lopez pan out? Will Anderson get better defensively?
Orlando should be ashamed for what they got in return for Howard. Down right pathetic. Doesn't matter much for us though. In 2-3 years, when we are ready to challenge, Kobe, Nash, and Gasol will all be on their way out of the NBA.
The only good thing about this is that it means a) Miami won't get another ring, and b) OKC won't get a ring.
If the league was in the habit of blocking stupid trades where it wasn't a party involved then the Hornets would never have been able to dump Okafor and Ariza on Washington.
