    Lakers giving up way too much.

    "I'm not going to allow my putative owner to answer that question, this is an NBA related press conference. Paul Tagliabue and Roger Goodell have collectively sung their praises of Tom and if uh ESPN has a problem with that tell Mr. Skipper to call me at my office."

    If i were orlando I would just take Bynum and Gasol and flip Bynum later, he's got to net more than afflalo

    Same question I had. O_O At first I was like, I'm sure Iggy + some other asset. But as it looks, Lakers look like they are overpaying.

    Bynum on the sixers will be great! Iggy for Bynum is a no-brainer. Win for Denver and Philly kinda Lakers but its stupid for Magic GM he had a way better deal with the Lakers and Rockets. Now hes getting those two and picks from nothing but contenders for the playoffs.

    At least it looked possible. If this deal goes through? It looks like an impossibility. Maybe we can get Wilson Chandler for chump change? I'm pretty sure they'll field a Lawson | Iggy | Gallo | Faried | McGee lineup - and I personally think that fails cause Iggy is better as a SF.

    Iggy to the Hornets is a bad idea, anyway.

    Personally, I think Magic GM is using this as a way to leverage more value out of what is already an incredible offer from HOU.

    Bynum hasn't committed to signing an extension and that isn't part of the deal so Bynum to Philly may be a rental...It's a huge risk more than anything.

    Looks awful for Orlando IMO, compare Gasol and Afflalo to the package we got for cp3, I think we should consider ourselves lucky!

    I love me some Iggy. Don't see why we jeopardize some cap flexibility by paying his hefty contract number.

    He'd make our team more versatile to be sure.
    Now I do voice overs. Finally!

    I think if Iggy was 23 or 24 it would make sense to go after him since Anderson, Gordon, and Davis are really young. I think Demps will look for a SF in that age group. Iggy is probably a bit too old even though he's in the prime of his career. Batum would have been a perfect fit if he wasn't getting 12 million a season.

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    If Orlando knew they could have ended up with Gasol, they should have kept Anderson. Those two fit well together. Not sure why they want Gasol for two years. They need to tank.

    I assume the Magic will flip Gasol? I don't get this trade for them much really. Afflalo is good and all but not great and the 76ers are raping this trade. The Lakers are overpaying, and probably wont still won't beat OKC. Denver and Philly are the winners of this trade IMO as strange as it sounds.
