Lakers Going to DEMOLISH The NBA

Post  Apologist Puncher on Thu Dec 08, 2011 9:41 pm

Not sure if any of you are basketball fans, but I definitely am. First, the Lakers go and trade for arguably the best PG in basketball: Chris Paul. NOW, rumor has it Dwight Howard WILL be a Laker, possibly within the next 24 hours. Miami who??

With Superman & CP3 along-side Kobe, Lakers win the next 3-4 titles in a row.

Stoked!!



Look at THAT! On topic too?!?

And then the NBA steps-in and does some ILLEGAL BULLSHIT:

http://basketball.realgm.com/wiretap/217181/Owners_Push_Stern_To_Kill_Chris_Paul_Trade_Deal_Could_Be_Off

The blockbuster Chris Paul trade is off, according to ESPN's Marc Stein. Other media outlets are now reporting that sources have confirmed that the trade is dead.

NBA owners have pushed David Stern to kill a proposed trade that would send Paul to the Lakers from the NBA-owned Hornets.

Owners were irate with Stern during Thursday's Board of Governors meeting.

You CANNOT force a puppet GM to kill a trade because a great team gets BETTER. You just can't.

I hope the Lakers are filing suit tomorrow at 8am in Federal Court.

This is some fucked-up shit.

It took an extra season, but it's happenin'!!!

http://probasketballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/08/09/report-call-scheduled-with-league-office-friday-for-approval-of-four-team-howard-trade/related/


Report: Four-team deal sending Howard to Lakers finalized, awaits league approval
Kurt Helin Aug 9, 2012, 10:27 PM EDT

Finally, Dwight Howard is being traded.

A complex four-team trade that sends Dwight Howard to the Lakers and Andre Iguodala to the Nuggets and involves the 76ers and Magic has been approved in principle by the teams and will go to the league for formal approval on Friday, reports Marc Stein of ESPN.

"Sources close to the process told Stein and ESPNLosAngeles.com’s Ramona Shelburne that a trade call with the league office has been scheduled for Friday to secure the necessary NBA approval to make the deal official."

The deal means the Lakers get Howard; the Magic get Arron Afflalo, Al Harrington, Nikola Vucevic, just drafted Moe Harkless (No. 15 pick in this draft) and a first round pick from each of the three other teams; the Sixers get Andrew Bynum and take on Jason Richardson and his contract; the Nuggets get Andre Iguodala.
That varies from the original report but fits with reports that Pau Gasol is not part of the deal. Expect some changes in the final form, but that seems to be the core of it.

This makes a lot of sense for the Lakers — they would start Steve Nash, Kobe Bryant, Antwan Jamison (probably), Pau Gasol, Dwight Howard and off the bench… does it matter? They would move up with the Heat as title contenders, and we can debate it but I think it moves them just past the Thunder.

However, Howard will not sign an extension with the Lakers. He shouldn’t, if he does he only gets three years at lower raises than if he becomes a free agent and re-signs with the Lakers. That would let him get a five year max deal with larger raises. Still, there is some risk for the Lakers.

Also, there is concern about Howard’s back — he had surgery on it and is rehabbing it in Los Angeles. That said he does not have a history of injury concerns (like Bynum), before last season he had never missed more than three games.

I get this for the Nuggets, who have wanted Iguodala for a while.

I get this for the Sixers, who get an anchor big in Bynum — and they are reportedly willing to gamble they can re-sign him. Philly athletes will tell you that if the fans in the city respect you and your effort it is the best place in the world to play… Bynum lived up to that last season, but before not so much. Bynum also grew up in New Jersey about an hour from Philly. Bynum is very money motivated and the extra cash the Sixers can offer with his Bird rights will play a big role. Also, Richardson’s deal is less painful than Iggy’s.

For the Magic, is this really better than what they were offered before? Afflalo is a quality NBA wing, Vucevic is young and could develop into a solid big, Harrington can be bought out after this season, Harkless is a rookie. There are three picks but all are lower in the draft.

Is that better than what the Nets offered with Brook Lopez and picks? Is it better than the picks and cap relief the Rockets are offering?

Or, is it something you can at least sell to your fan base as good? That may be the case.

Give it up, NBA. Lakers got this on LOCK.

Kind of missing the point, but I guess you're not wrong?
