This is a quote from another forum. I provided a link to where you can listen in by streaming. Bird & JO are expected to come on radio in Indy this afternoon:

Per JMV on WNDE 1260:

Larry Bird is to be on @ 4:05′ish to discuss the JO situation & more.

JO is said to appear @ 4:30 to discuss what he actually said – & he has told the station that there is tape to support what he said!

Should be interesting….

    IMO,the trade demand by JO was intentional and planned by JO and Kobe (friends for the past 14 years) during JO’s visit in LA. Think about it for a moment; Kobe’s trade demand weakened Lakers position; other teams are taking advantage of the fact that Lakers must appease Kobe. JO’s trade demand to the Lakers balanced out positions on both sides. It’s just a fair game.

    Regarding JO to the Nets, it is a tough deal: Nets are paying $34-Mil just for Kidd and Carter, add $20-Mil for JO and they will pay $54-Mil (almost salary cap) just for 3 players. Also, preferably, teams don’t trade within the same conference, with the Nets and Pacers being in same conference. Remember what JO said “LA is far enough….”

  • cyrus

    Damage is done and Pacers’ position has been weakened no matter how many interviews they give. It’s all documented, black on white and on audio tapes.

    I tried this trade on the trade machine and it works. I don’t want to give up Odom, BUT if we have to, this is the trade we can make!!!!!!!

    Odom/Bynum/Radmanovic/Kwame/Sasha for JO/Marquis Daniels/Jeff Foster

  • http://www.getgarnett.com Fred A.

    JO should annoy the pacers organization and Mr. Bird Brain so more maybe Bird just send JO to the Lakers for a package around Bynum then LO. Anyway, the pacers want youth and shooters so I see Bynum and Farmer as great tools to build around and they are pretty young. For the shooters I see Cook and Radmonivic. Plus 1 or 2 more first round picks to help them out some more. I see this is a great deal for both teams.
    MITCH COME ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • cyrus

    New article about JO to the Lakers, analyzing the deal. Worth reading:

    Hey ED you can’t put Odom in that deal n less you get Granger in return

  • http://www.lakers.com Ed

    Fred A. I don’t know what you’re talking about. This deal is the second best deal we can make, the first being Bynum and some fillers.

  • lakersfan17

    Kwame
    Radman
    Lakers get JO

  • lakerfan81

    lakersfar17 Indiana will not take Vlad conttract. He has absolutely no trade value right now.

  • cyrus

    Are you guys sure you have the right radio station????
    The one posted, only plays music. no talk no nothing.!!!

  • http://www.lakers.com Ed

    The Faze that is the best trade we can do, but I don’t think it will happen because Larry Bird won’t accept that deal. If we can pull that trade off, that will be a comlete steal for us. I don’t know about you guys but I’m hoping and praying that we can convince them to take that deal!!!!!

  • TheFaze

    Heck, toss in the rights to Gasol, a 1st round pick for ’08, and even cash. Dang, just make the deal…

    jeez. i guess indiana got to his mouth real quick once he landed. im not even gonna get crazy over anything. i did the same with garnett and i wasnt that badly hurt by it. so im gonna stay content and wait for some real concrete info. not this he said, i said bull crap that JO is having with himself in that head of his.

  • cyrus

    Wow, the last topic about “changes coming soon” was erased along with almost 70 comments, just like that. Never seen anything like it before.LOL

  • LakerNation1

    i think we got on their nerves haha

    that or we finally struck a cord on the name change? =P

    funny

  • getgarnettlakers

    we need to upgrade quick before kobe kick rocks jo would
    maybe shut him up

  • cyrus

    LakerNation1,

    They know very well that we care and we want them to succeed. I moved here from LA-Times blog because of the unbearable hatred. The K-Bros at LA-Times Lakers Blog are getting paid to be fans. In contrary, GG creators, are paying all the expenses form their pockets to give the fans a sanctuary to express their opinions and affections for their beloved Lakers. I admire and respect them for the fact that they are true Lakers’ fans.

    Marketing and retail has been my profession for many years. I know too well that changing a brand name can kill a market and I also understand their reluctance to change the name. Unfortunately, the “GetGarnett” as a brand name became irrelevant as soon as he was traded to Boston. No matter how they turn and twist it or change the meaning or change the face or change the color or change whatever, that brand name is not marketable anymore. It’s a fact they have no choice but to accept and deal with properly.

  • Billy Kupchak

    how about we just get chris webber & keep our team as it is right now & see how far we can get til february?

  • http://www.lakers.com Ed

    Billy Kupchak, Chris Webber has agreed to sign with the Mavs for the full MLE so your idea will never work.

  • http://www.getgarnett.com Fred A.

    ED that is a great deal I just miss read it a little.
    But you know one thing I like the Sasha. Can you replace Sasha for some first rounder picks? If you did that a I say YES to that deal. I like the Sasha cause he plays great defense and can shoot like dynamite.
    I also try to get PJ Brown if Webber is thinking about the Mavs’.

  • http://www.getgarnett.com Fred A.

    If it means Sasha so be it!!!!!!

    Are you serious??? Sasha is perhaps the most useless player on the Lakers. His defense consists primarily of flopping, (Expected since Vlade Divac scouted him), couldn’t make an outside shot in the playoffs if his life depended on it, and whines like a little baby. The guy is utterly useless….useless I tell you.
