i read somewhere that the atlanta hawks want pau gasol straight up for josh smith
but the lakers wanted more than just Josh for Gasol........

that means if the lakers wanted to they could just do a straight up trade gasol for josh....


than they could go to orlando and straight up tell em we will take dwight, here goes bynum even though
Dwight said he wont sign an extension.........

lets say the lakers do take a gamble with taking dwight.....i would like to know all of your opinions
especially billfinger, on what u think the lineup of

Nash, Bryant,Metta,Josh smith and Dwight are capable of ?????????

and do u think that would be a better line-up than
Nash Bryant Metta Gasol and Bynum ???????



heres the article about josh

    Dwight said time after time, he ain't signing an extension with L.A., so trading for him would be stupid as fuck. Dumb as fuck.

    Josh Smith for Gasol is a great trade, Lakers are stupid by not making it happen.

    Josh is 26 and in prime form, Gasol is 31, not that old, but he soft that adds 10 years .

    smh @ you still not believing they cant




    got kobe bryant for vlade divac

    got pau gasol for kwame brown

    flipped pau gasol into chris paul (before stern blocked that shit)

    Exactly. The Lakers are one of the most storied franchises in all of sports, in one of the biggest cities in America.

    Why the fuck would it ever be challenging for them to get stars.

    D Howard is smart, he knows Kobe is on the backside of his career and a fucking ball hog. Dude wants to play with D Will because D Will is younger and they can have a 8 year run together, plus he is unselfish.

    Orlando can talk Lakers, Hawks,etc all they want but Howard holds the trump card of not signing an extension. No GM in their right mind will give up their best assests for Dwight only for a year.

    that nigga dwight has limited offense anyway, nigga would be blessed to play alongside nash who could get him the rock "when necessary" and kobe who has enough left to carry dwight limited offensive skillset.....

    Why do people still think Dwight holds all the cards tho? Honest question, which ever team he goes to has to play ball or he'll have to take a HUGE pay cut to sign with the nets as a free agent. You think he'll do that?

    Negro, what GM in their right mind are gonna trade for Howard when he specifically said their is only one team he wants to play for. Wtf are the Lakers, Hawks,etc gonna do, strong arm him into signing pass the 2013 season. He holds all the cards!

    He will not have to take a huge pay cut, he might not make as much as the Magic could pay him, but he will make more than enough playing in a big market like NY. They can offer him a shorter contract and Larry Bird him in, then give him a bigger second contract. Prokarov don't give a fuck about no salary cap nigga, they'll make it work.

    Cuz Howard is a proven flip-flopper and you can't take his words at face value.

    Say he gets traded to Lakers, and Lakers win it all. And the Nets don't do shit.

    He really gonna not resign??? And go to the bum ass nets?

    Don't think so.

    He ain't going to the Lakers, want to know why? Kobe Bryant is 35 years old, Nash is 38 years old, the Lakers only have a 2 year span and that will leave Howard in the same position he was in in Orlando. Dude wants to play with younger players his age where he can't have a 8-10 year run with. Plus Kobe ball hogging and condescending ways won't click with dude, he ain't tolerating the Gasol treatment.

    what part of ''could'' don't you understand, that sounds like the writers opinion. Dwight Howard came out of his own mouth and said there is only one team he will play for, that's his opinion, not some writers thoughts.

    Stop bein shook if they get dwight they still wouldn't have a bench or shooters and the magic would force them to take hedo or j richardson which would financially handicap the lakers you cant build a title team wit a mini mid level

    Next year durant gonna shine get mvp and put up 30 ppg,thunder will win the west imo

    If they dont heat vs lakers is what everybody wants to see,so the king can send that hog to the pasture like mike did magic

    This nigga also said about a billion things the past couple offseason and 999,999,999 of them sayings changed at some point.

    You acting like, #1 he has the final say on where he gets trade and #2 if he DOES get traded somewhere not named Brooklyn he just gon go on strike, and refuse to suit up.
