Bynum & Odom trade rumors are false

This is great. We don’t want to lose 2 big pieces to the team.

ESPN: If you believe Kupchak, a sign-and-trade is unlikely to involve Andrew Bynum or Lamar Odom, two names that have been thrown around in trade scenarios, because the GM said Friday he doesn’t expect any “major changes to the team.”

  • KWAME SUCKS

    Damn it. Looks like we’re going to have to go through another season with a cripple as our starting center.

    • B Holland

      Can we trade you because we don’t want to have to go through another year with you as a “fan”? Much rather have a clipper fan.

      • lakers0828

        lol Yeah lets trade his ass to the clippers

      • KWAME SUCKS

        As long as you include Bynum in the deal.

        • LEADERFISH

          Don’t need to you are a clipper fan.

  • ricky

    This “rumor” was never gonna fly. Seriously, what team is stupid enough to trade away two major players with that much size. People who want Drew and Lamar out of the picture are out of their minds. Get it in your head people; in the past 3 years (despite losing to Boston in ’08), no team has been able to come close to our size in the middle. That is what sets us apart from everyone else and that’s why were champs! Why fix something that’s not broken? This is our formula for success, our size is our biggest advantage. Add to that a superstar in Kobe and a defensive pit-bull in Ron-Ron, we have a great thing going on here. Don’t f*** it up by doing something stupid.

    We are really on a good track this off season, re-sign some key player(s) and add some free agents and we got a deep roster next season.

    • Reality

      Well said, Ricky but that won’t keep the dip$hits from making stupid “trade Odumb” or “trade Bydumb” comments. They are the ones that voted for Nobama. Look how great that is working out. *****sarcasm*****

  • rondo

    Kwame Sucks you are a real jerk. You are not a Laker fan go the fuck away.

  • ^ ^

    To Laker Nation and ‘ricky’ and ‘rondo’ remember Bynum and Odom didn’t play Dallas, Denver, and San Antonio last season in the playoffs. They play tall but to short teams to get to the finals. All these teams I mention are a threat next season in the WC.

    Odom and Bynum are SO inconsistent. Odom plays whenever he wants to and acts like a fucking baby. Bynum will always be hurt and I bet anyone he will be hurt again next season. ‘Kwame Sucks’ is right. No ‘rondo’ ‘Kwame Sucks’ and me are the real die hard fans. We bleed purple and gold. When the Lakers lose or make any mistakes we feel like we lost too or we made mistakes too

    Remember about Dallas, Denver, and San Antonio Laker Nation

    • http://www.twitter.com/TLN24 Marwan Marzina

      If they were such big threats, why did they lose to the undersized teams (Jazz, Suns)

      • ^ ^

        Denver didn’t have a coach. San Antonio didn’t have Tony Parker full strength and remember the suns barely beat the Spurs. They were lucky…

        • http://www.twitter.com/TLN24 Marwan Marzina

          Well if they were lucky, then what if Nuggets and Mavs and Spurs did make it to us, we would’ve destroyed them cause of the reasons you listed…

          • ^ ^

            No… Bynum has no basketball skills. His excuse is being hurt to off set his basketball skills. He is just tall. How many times was he call for travels. He is so mechanical. He’s no good. And Odom doesn’t want to play and play without heart. And he has no eye brows LOL!!!

          • http://www.twitter.com/TLN24 Marwan Marzina

            Then what can you say about Dwight? He is tall and muscly with no shooting skills what so ever. He relies on his height and power to dunk the ball. I don’t think being tall and built is considered having skills. Bynum can shoot and do what Dwight does. Dwight struggles at the FT line shooting 50 %. Bynum doesn’t, shooting 76%.
            Lamar plays with heart, sometimes things don’t go right for him. Cut them a break… geez.

          • ^ ^

            How many years have they been in a laker uniform? And still they are still the same SO inconsistent. They don’t know their roles in the team. It’s just frustating as a Laker’s fan…

          • Odom the worst player

            Are you crazy Odumb doesn’t play with heart. What’s your definition of a heart

          • ^ ^

            @ Odom the worst player: He plays when he wants to that what I mean by it. He has the skills but he doesn’t display it on a consistent base. He plays like a fag lol

        • say queensbridge

          wtf lucky, youre calling a sweep lucky!!

          • Idiots

            we are winning championships with odom and bynum thats all that matters..shut up and stop complaining…stop tryin to fix whats not broken

          • Bynum & Odom Sucks Balls

            Remembered we didn’t played Dallas, Denver, Houston, San Anthonio, even Portland and we will play Oklahoma City again. This pass season we played a few undersized teams to get to the finals and an undersized Phoenix team gave them hell… what you think about that @ “Idiots”?? Not enough production offensively or defensively from these inconsistent FAGS. The Lakers will not 3 Peat. Trust me!

  • ^ ^

    Laker Nation and Mitch, we need sharp and consistent shooters for next season to beat Denver, Dallas, and San Antonio also Oklahoma

  • http://www.twitter.com/TLN24 Marwan Marzina

    Guys always come up with excuses to dishonor the players when you should be paying homage to them. You say Bynum didn’t contribute in 2009 Finals? Then who put a body on Dwight in the paint? Was it Pau? No I don’t think so.
    You don’t need to score to be considered a great player or be considered a threat. Your mere presence is a threat.

    • ^ ^

      Bynum didn’t play Dwight last season. What games were you watching man..? Bynum weren’t even effective in the NBA finals. He barely played that showed the Lakers can win without him. He sucks!!!

      • http://www.twitter.com/TLN24 Marwan Marzina

        2009 Finals against Magic.
        Bynum had the assignment of putting a body on Dwight and it was very effective. Dwight didn’t dunk till Game 3. His presence alone was enough to stop Dwight. Go rewatch (or watch for the first time) the 2009 Finals then come back and tell me I was wrong.

        • ^ ^

          Well… just a body… but he’s no good. We can get someone else like a Okfur with better skills to off set Dwight. Beside Dwight doesn’t have offense. Like you said we just need a big body. We don’t need him plus his contract is ridiculous. We can get some sharp shooters like a Mike Miller with that contract.

        • ^ ^

          Again he barely played in the 2009 finals…

        • http://www.twitter.com/TLN24 Marwan Marzina

          Sure, get Okafor and put him in the position Bynum was in 2009 Finals and the outcome would be different. Simple as that. If Dwight went off then the series wouldn’t have been that easily determined.

          • ^ ^

            Again Bynum barely played in the 2009 finals. The lakers can win without him. And I disagree, Okafor has better skill and cost less then his mechanical ass…

          • ^ ^

            Okafor has better skills period! And cost less!

  • Str8 Ballin

    if u guys think Bynum sux! well u Stupid n Fag…

      @ Str8 Ballin Yeah good come back bitch. You band wagon faker…

      • ^ ^

        @ Str8 Ballin Watch Bynum get hurt again next season I’ll bet you. A hurt guy for 13.8 millions for 2010-2011 Fuck that Bummed!!! He’s no good. Okafor is better and cheaper!

        • ^ ^

          Bynum has no basketball skills. He’s just tall and big

            @ team_me Any basketball player can do that. Go and play one on one with Okafor. Ameka would beat his SORRY ass

          • A bynum & Odom hater

  • Odom the worst player

    Nooooooooooooooooo get odumb out of here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • matricks00

    Why isn’t anyone bringing up Udonis Haslem?? He is battle tested, championship tested and proven. He could provide a valuable backup to Bynum and lower Gasols minutes. Can bang, play defense aginst 5 or 4, and knock down the midrange. Plus he’s only 29! He would also allow Lamar to slide to his natural position of facilitating 3. Add a combo guard/forward like Rasul Butler and Lakes are stacked on the bench. Why give Blake (untested) 4 mil a yr to do what Sasha can do and proved he’s tested when he knocked those freethrows in w/o playing the whole game??

  • Bynum&Odom = BO!!!

    Bynum is Shit!!! nothing but just big and tall. No basketball skills. If you look at him play. He is so mechanical. If he play one on one with Okafor he’ll get beat. And Odom is shitty too!!! I bet anyone of you that Bynum will make an excuse of being hurt again next season. A scrub that makes over 13 million next season. What a waste of money. If I was a GM I would get rid him and get me a few sharp shooters for the team with a sign and trade.

    • A bynum & Odom hater

      Yeah I agree. They are both shitty!!!

      • matricks00

        Can’t say Bynum is bad, and he’s 22. Can’t trade away height and a traditional big, he will extend gasol play @ a high level, plus Bosh has stated he doesn’t want to be second fiddle, with the lakes he’d be third. He’s also stated he does not want to play center leaving the lakes with no backup big.

    • idiots

      and thats why your arent the GM because you have no clue what you are Talking about bynum on one leg is better then okafor and to say he has no skills is crazy..his footwork and touch for a 7ft center are second to none …Bynum will be an All-Star next Season remeber that

      • Bynum & Odom Sucks Balls

        @ Idiots I don’t think so. He’ll never be an All-star far from it. He is SO mechanical. He have foot work that travels a lot. LOL!!! All-star my ass!!!

  • rondo

    Who is this no name ass acting like a laker fan you guys are a disgrace to all the loyal fans on this board. You creeps have no life so you spend your whole day down grading our players. Only thing you bleed is bull not purple and gold. If i was a Los Angeles Laker player i would not want you as my fan.

    • Bynum & Odom Sucks Balls

      @ Rondo Tell me and the Laker nation what have they done sense being in a Laker uniform. How long have they been inconsistent as a Laker? How many years and counting? They weren’t barely there in the playoffs this year or last year. Bynum didn’t really play in the Oklahoma series, or phoenix series and the Boston series… That goes with Odumb too. He was on the floor but weren’t effective at all. They weren’t effective at all…in 2008, 2009 & 2010 nba finals. They were bailed out by Kobe, Pau, and Ron. Yup that’s the Lakers real “Big 3″ and core. And yes I bleed purple and gold. I don’t know about you and this lovey dovey scrap. But how long can a lakers fan stand for this mediocrity from both of them. Plus they are over pay for their production.

      • why?

        helped win 2 championships thats what they have done…obviously they are doing something right if they are still on the team and arent going to get traded

        • Bynum & Odom Sucks Balls

          Well the Lakers played a few undersized teams to get to the finals. With that Phoenix gave them hell as an undersized team. And did you see what Oklahoma City did? The Thunders almost took them to a game seven.

          Well, then I don’t know about this coming season if you ask me.. with them on the team there will be no offensive production and not enough effort because both will still be the same… As you know in the playoffs we didn’t play Dallas, Denver, Houston or San Anthonio and we will play Oklahoma City again. I’m sure these teams will be a threat next season. It will be harder to win it again. The journey will be the hardest if there’s not enough production from Bynum and Odom. This Lakers team needs some sharp shooters on this team trust me…

  • rondo

    All you Bynum and Lamar haters are a bunch of fake ass fans. get off this board punks

    • Bynum & Odom Sucks Balls

      @ Rondo are you gay? What a fag!!!

  • matricks00

    Sasha @ the guard position is fine with who will be with him on the second unit. Sasha, Butler, lamar, haslem, and whichever big man stays. 9 man rotation that can’t be messed with. Miami was interested in Farmar anyway if haslem is priced higher, work out a sign and trade w some other pieces.

  • say queensbridge

    sure odom doesn’t play consistent but when he does play he plays big and where basically unbeatable when that happens. And besides all the laker players love odom as Kobe, Pau, and PJ once said ” Hes is the most popular guy in the locker room … hes friends with everybody.” Trading “Odumb” will just be bad for the championship nucleus we already have and even worse if fisher doesn’t comeback as hes the vocal leader of the team.

    • Bynum & Odom Sucks Balls

      Yeah I understand… but he acts like a bitch on the floor (court)

      • Bynum & Odom Sucks Balls

        And he just not trying that’s all. Besides that he acts like he’s cool all the time. He has and act like this “victim mentality” for some reason. IDK he’s just needs to grow up and play!

  • rondo

    You the one posting about doing something to balls punk!

  • rondo

    Stop counting people’s money punk its not coming out of your pocket. Mr. Buss don’t need a fool like you counting his money. He did not get rich being a fool . Stop player hating. (Bynum &Odom)

    • Bynum & Odom Is Shit

      @ Rondo I’m not hating BITCH. Dr Buss just need to spend his money wisely. Just tell me when have they been consistent? They are both worthless trust me. Odom acts like a cry baby. He plays basketball whenever he wants to like a Bitch. He has the skills but doesn’t display it on the court. Tell me as a fan for a long time. Doesn’t that get you angry at times that he doesn’t give his full effort? And this Bynum is just big and tall and have no basketball skills. Have you seem him play? He’s so mechanical and travels a lot… And he always hurt every year plus he’s just twenty two. When will he stop getting hurt and when will he ever improve his game for over 13 million dollars for 2010- 2011 season? Being hurt is just his excuse for the lack of basketball skills…

  • rondo

    Bynum& Odom: You sound kind of crazy to me. calm down young man. Nobody cares how you feel about Lamar and Andrew.

  • Bynum & Odom Is Shit

    @ Rondo Trust me a lot of people feels the same way. I’m not crazy if you don’t care why did you respond? I bet you that Bynum will pretend to get hurt in some kind way for his lack of basketball skills as a nba player next season. All-star my ass… “Bynum & Odom Is Overrated” is right. LOL getting hurt every year and he’s considered an All-Star WhatEver!! LOL And Odom will still be the same inconsistent playing like a fag. Watch out for Dallas, Houston, Denver, Portland, and Oklahoma next year. If these fags plays with inconsistency the Lakers will not 3 Peat.

      u know how piss off ur name gets me get the fuck outta here with that shii u aint no laker fan bynum was suppose to gain sum fans playing with one freaking leg and doing well with it and his size against boston was clearly needed and help us win a chip…u fuken non unappreciated motherfuker

      • http://thelakersnation.com l.alakeshow

        and odom ainow how mad u guys get cause he’s inconsistent but he’s kinda player that we clearly need agains teams like the suns jazz etc what would we have done without um in the phoenix series

      • Bynum & Odom Is Shit

        @l.alakeshow One leg my ass!!! He’ll get no respect from me until he’s consistent for 7 games of 20 and 10 player. Another thing why then is he running and jumping to Ron Artest to celebrate in game 5 of the phoenix series when Artest hit a winning buzzer beater? That fag is faking his injury. And then after the Finals he went to Africa to the world cup and not taking care of his knee? If the knee was that injured, in my opinion, if I was an injured knee basketball player I would stay home and take care of it right away! What a Bitch!

      • Bynum & Odom Is Shit

        @ l.alakeshow I’m a real Lakers fan BITCH! You are not a laker’s fan. You are more of a Faker fan. You like bynum for giving at least amount effort every single time or might I say ” half hearted” player every year. How long will you make excuses for him? Forever? You are a fan that excuses for Kwame “no hands can’t ball” Brown also and you’ll make the same excuses for Bynum… What kind of fan are you? This lovie dovie shit is Shit!

        • 242LakerFan

          I won’t argue too much for Odom because clearly he is not there every night and he sometimes plays like he’d rather be somewhere else, though not to the extent you claim.
          But you really are crazy if you think Bynum is just faking, slacking and not giving it everything and more out there. Faking? Really? How do you fake a torn maniscus, dumbass? How do you fake a scan that clearly shows damage to one of the ligaments in your knee? And do you think you could play NBA post ball with that kind of pain?
          As for skills, he might be one of the most skilled true centers in this league. He certainly has better basketball skills and footwork than Dwight Howard or Shaq. Yes, he has been injured a lot, but most of those were contact injuries, not his own fault. How does that take away from his skill level?
          If you really were a fan, you’d at least appreciate what you do have. It may not be exactly what you want, but last I checked, it seems to be good enough for three straight Finals and two Chips.
          They’re not Kareem and Worthy, but who the hell is? That doesn’t mean they’re shit.

Real fans don’t hate their players,you need to go follow Chris Bosh and root for him at his next destination. We as Laker fans are tied of you guys who seem never satisfied with the Lakers. Lebron James and Chris Bosh will welcome you fake punks who are not happy over here. Also i really wonder do you have a man crush on Bynum and Odom?

    • Bynum & Odom Is Shit

      @ Rondo What’s up your celdick name? Wha? And so you are keeping on making excuses for odumb and bydumb? So how many more years celdick rondo are you going to make excuses for them? For their half hearted playing? What kind of fan is that a fag fan or a faker fan? You’re the asshole that’s enabling some half hearted not giving it their all fags players and they always get bailed out by Kobe, Pau, and Ron. You are a dumb ass muther fucker!!! You fucking fag!

You are very a sad sack you need to wish Andrew the best and stop sending negative enegy to him. Lil man look at the glass as half full.

    • Bynum & Odom Is Shit

      @ Celdick Rondo How am I fuckin jinx? Are you gay Bitch? Bydumb is a grown man and a professional. You think he can’t handle criticism? He’s not baby? Is he? Why are you treating him like he’s a baby? Can’t he vote? Can’t he drink? He’s needs to man up and not pout and have a back bone! It seem like you need one too. Nah man you are not trying build anyone up Celdick! You are trying to build him up so other teams can look at him and maybe get a trade for him too. Don’t tell me about negative energy? All that negative energy comes from him playing half heartedly every year. And how many years is he still the same way? Don’t tell me about this half full shit. Hey man that half glass which was full but it’s been emptying for this bydumb& Odumb… If this bydumb & odumb plays to their full potential then they’ll get praises. Then every fan will say nothing but good things. Look at Fish. He doesn’t have the potential like bydumb or Odumb but he plays HARD and give it his all plus helped us win championships. A very character guy. Do you see that in bydumb or Odumb? they play like they are non-existent on the floor (court). How many more years are they still the same? Trade them because they can’t changed…
