    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.
    Finally a big picture reaction. Plus if the thunder don't win a championship, they'll be more likely to lose harden Ibaka instead of paying the Lux tax

    Orlando:
    Outgoing: Dwight Howard
    Incoming: Arron Affalo, Al Harrington, Nikola Vucevic, Moe Harkless, Denver's future 1st round pick, L.A. future 1st round pick, and Philadelphia's future 1st round pick.

    Philadelphia:
    Outgoing: Andre Iguodala, Nickola Vucevic, Moe Harkless, and 1st round pick
    Incoming: Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    Denver:
    Outgoing: Arron Affalo, 1st round pick
    Incoming: Andre Iguodala

    L.A. Lakers:
    Outgoing: Andrew Bynum and 1st round pick
    Incoming: Dwight Howard
    It seems like every team benefited from the trade. Orlando went with quantity over quality. I think in the end, they will regret doing this deal.

    That was highway robbery. But because it was us doing it no one noticed.
    Now I do voice overs. Finally!

    It's going to be hard to root for Nash now

    I can't think of an NBA player I hate more than Kobe, except Dwight.

    Yeah i know that i just wish someone could stop this stuff from happening. I mean getting nash in a sign and trade the year before tax teams can't do sign and trades anymore? Some CBA we got here.

    I'm not gonna be frustrated because it really doesnt effect us right now anyways but it just kind of bums me out.

    I'm not convinced the Lakers will win a title. I still like a healthy Miami team.

    Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    I would feel differently if they didn't have Mike Brown as their coach. The Lakers are constructed better than the Heats even with Allen. They would definitely be my favorites to win it all if they had a good coach in place.

    They have the bigs that should drive Miami wild but the Lakers have no bench whatsover. And though neither do the Heat, LeBron or Wade can always play buttloads of minutes cuz they're both relatively young and in their prime.

    Lakers did get Jamison, retained Jordan hill matt barnes (i think) and have Steve Blake. Not an excellent bench but one more player like a jodie meeks or someone like that and theyre on the verge.

    It's been reported that Dwight won't sign an extension with the Lakers, so we only have to deal with this foolishness for one year haha. I'm wondering tho can David Stern weto the trade or he could only veto the Hormets trade because they were the owners at the time

    Howard won't have much of a choice as all of his favorite spots are pretty much tied to contracts.

    The Nuggets got the best of this trade, they got Iguodala for Afflallo and a protected first!! That's a pretty good deal.

    Who in that age group (23/24) will be available at SF next season?
    I can't think of anybody!

    Why do the Lakers always get the best end of all trades?

    Ahhhh, to bad should've took the Rockets deal. I mean they didn't get Bynum nor did they get Iguodala. This was suppose to be my second team i would watch be build up from the bottom into contention once again. But looks like before they'll be at the bottom end of the lottery for some years
