I don't care about outside shooting from a big. Defense and rebounding are far more important

Smith is younger, tougher, cheaper. I'll be the first to say I HATE when he shoots jumpers though

Pau Gasol is GONE

Think about this though guys...Would you want Josh Smith to be one of the big FA's we could spend our 2014 $$$ on??

At first I think wow yes trade Pau for Smith, that would be ideal for the future. But think about 2014 and who we could have as a free agent then? If we get Smith now, we will have to re-sign him this summer with Dwight and between Smith, Howard and Nash we could be looking at $45-$50m. If Kobe wants to come back, there is our FA money gone. No chance for Lebron.

We have Dwight Howard going forward. There's no need for the greatest franchise of all time to grovel to Lebron James.

Sounds like you have something personal against Lebron. Which is fine, a lot of people are not his biggest fan (including myself) but if we have the opportunity, you'd be crazy not to try. Pairing Dwight with Lebron would be insane from a pure entertainment standpoint, let alone talent. If we can't get Lebron, I would rather wait for Kyrie and Love.

You were talking as if Lebron is our great white knight or something. Making the assumption that in 2014 we need to have enough money to land Lebron James.

We aren't getting LeBron. At this point getting Josh Smith or Kevin Love would be a steal.
