If your first course of action when waking up is checking your smart phone for an update on a Laker trade, constantly listening to AM radio for Laker updates, or spending a good 30 min on the espn trade machine...there is no doubt that this year has been wild from the nixed trade of CP3

My question is when can you remember trade rumors being this crazy during a season?

Maybe the year we were rumored to try and trade Bynum for Jason Kidd/Garnett/Jermaine Oneal

It's the amount of media. Twitter is probably THE KEY item that has made the rumor mill so explosive.

Tweet, re-Tweet, re-peat.

If twitter existed during the 90s era imagine how the George McCloud trade or Cedric for Horry trade would be digested by Laker bloggers
