Per 36 minutes their stars are pretty much the same, actually.

Sure, but Varejao is putting up his numbers against starters, while Jordan Hill is playing against other bench players...and even then, there's a question as to whether or not Jordan Hill could even sustain that level of play for 36 minutes (or more). A lot of players fizzle out after 20-25 minutes of play, which is why many are benched for most of their careers.

I dont care that they have similar stats. Varejao and Hill are NOT the same.

Varejao is one of the best defenders in the league, Hill isn't.

But a frontcourt with Varejao and Howard probably is going to be quite good defensively...

Compared to the situation out in Philly, it's working amazingly well.


Without Bynum, philly is already a playoff team..

With Howard, Lakers are not in the top 8 in the west.
The Lakers FO knows more than you. Sorry.

Jordan Hill would get that chance if a certain power forward finally went to the bench where he belonged :)

Why is Bynum being talking about here?

Dwight is actually playing, which automatically wins that trade for the Lakers.

Not even sure what that means.

You might as well say that, with Joel Anthony, the Heat are NBA champs...so Joel > Dwight? Doesn't make sense.

EDIT: Let me try this again...

The Warriors, without Andrew Bogut, are a playoff team. Therefore...Bogut > Dwight? Hahaha.

The Pacers, without Danny Granger, have a better record than Brooklyn. Therefore, Granger > D-Will?

According to ESPN, the Raps are shopping Bargnani, which is old news. What's new is that they are shopping Kyle Lowry as well and they (ESPN) are saying that the Raps would like to package Lowry and Bargnani for an all-star caliber player. Gasol?

IMO, Calderon and Barg is a no-go, but Lowry and Barg....i think i would do that. Lowry is among the best defenders in the league and when Howard gets healthy he'll cover some of Bargnani's flaws. Bargnani probably fits better in D'Antoni's system than Pau.

The Raptors are more likely to go after DeMarcus Cousins over Pau Gasol, if they are looking for a big. Truth is, Gasol's all-star days are long gone, doesn't matter what team he's playing for, and every GM knows that.

And I find it hard to believe Toronto is looking to deal Lowry for someone like Gasol, anyway, because as it stands, they are one of the hottest teams in the league since Bargnani fell to injury, winning eight of their last nine games (and probably nine of their last ten, since they are playing Sacramento next). The price for Lowry + Bargnani would have to be high.

Ladies and Genltlemen ,i present to you, the kudegra of wishful Gasol trades; the vaunted, somewhat realistic Kevin Love trade. BAM
(the trade has been handed down to me from another Laker forum)

here it is...

the lakers get : Kevin Love ; woooooh!wooooh! yaaa! right!?right!?
ok

the Kings get : Pekovic ,other pieces

Minny gets - Cousins and Pau!

rejoice,laker nation, rejoice

Kobe and Randle led Lakers lead the team to a 32-50 record. the Lakers select Myles Turner with the 5th pick.

Rudy Gay for Pau, somehow lol? Start Hill, and bring Metta off the bench as usual where Gay and Metta play either 3 or 4.

Yes, I know it's a "pipe dream." But in my opinion it would work. Ups our athleticism and maybe defense? Not sure how Gay is at defense.

But you know I'd rather have Love
