    Neither are the Lakers. We have one of the best young players in the league in Andrew Bynum and a solid backup big in Jordan Hill.

    Orlando run kids camp or Howard's camp?

    He can be upset with the organization but he should show up for the kids.

    keep telling yourself that.

    nash isn't an all-star anymore. no more than jeremy lin is.

    antawn jamison is terrible which is why he signed for the vet minimum. he wasn't wanted anywhere else that wins more than 30 games. he went where they'd have no choice but to play him because the depth is so poor. jamison scores and rebounds but he is completely floorbound and can not defend anyone, ever. you play him with nash and good grief. might as well get don nelson in as head coach.

    lakers issues: age, severe lack of depth, new offense, lack of defensive players after bynum, poor coaching, severe possibility bynum is looking for the door.

    people assuming the lakers challenge for a title are making the classic mistake of thinking everything goes right all year. that almost never happens.

    Makes more sense for the Magic than that idiotic Cavs deal.

    But I dont see Lakers trading Bynum and Pau.

    We'll see how much say Kobe has in all this since he said just a few weeks ago that he wants Pau a Laker for life.

    The NBA has gone downhill since the likes of Hakeem, Robinson, Malone, Ewing, Jordan, Stockton, Kemp, etc, etc. Kobe is the last of the Mohicans. If the league doesn't implement some sort of age requirement or 2 years of college, then I think the league will be irrelevant in 10 years. I don't want to watch thugs play the game, I miss the old days of great shooting and defense, not a me attitude of selfish ball control.

    I wouldn't go that far. You still have guys like Kevin Durant who will make this league relevant for a long, long time. In many ways he's like a younger version of Kobe. Not as good obviously, but similar players IMO. In just his fifth year in the league he led his team to the NBA Finals defeating the two best teams of this generation in the Lakers and Spurs along the way. That's very. Very impressive. He's my favorite player in the league after Kobe. I love watching that kid play. Barring injury KD will go down as one of the greatest players of all time.

    As others have noted, this one reeks of "hey Houston, we're gonna do this. I swear. I'm just about to do it. No really. Here I go ..."

    Not clear to me what Philly's involvement would be, unless they're moving Iggy for shorter deals.

    Based on Yahoo! report of four-way Howard talks, I gotta think Denver's $13 million TPE from Nene deal is a major, major factor in it.

    Looks like Howard to the Lakers in exchange for Bynum and a 2017 1st round pick. Lakers also acquire PF Earl Clark and PG Chris Duhon. If that's what it cost the Lakers, then I'd say Kup, once again, out did himself cause that's a pretty damn good trade for the Lakers.

    OKC extends Ibaka. Wonder what this means for Harden.
