If Dwight isnt having fun in LA with Kobe, do you really see him wanting to be teammates with a dude like KG, whos more in-your-face? :laughing:

Exactly. KG was the one telling him "paint your face clown!"

Not going to happen, at all.

The author is accurate with that statement. The CBA has made those changes


Thanks. That is a game changer.

Consider this: celts would have Dwight for playoffs this year. If they get 6 seed could avoid MIA until ECF.

They would sweeten pot to pull this off and make one last run with KG and Pierce.

If ATL offered this would you do it?

Al Horford + Jeff Teague + Kyle Korver + 2 1st future round picks for Dwight

Dwight can still get his max and what not and play with his buddy Josh Smith. On the other end I'd be sitting on nails if I were ATL since there is no guarantee either guy re-signs with you

Would Nash come off the bench for a few years presuming he stays that long? That would be an epic pg rotation.

Nash is an unselfish guy. He is not one of those players who whines about not getting touches. Keep in mind also that he has basically started the entire time in his career. It would be a transition, but he is 39 years old. I think that will make it more understandable.

This Lakers front office does not give in to fear. They wouldn't trade a guy like Dwight unless they get a good deal. They knew the risks when they traded for him.

Horrible fit. Our problem is that the coach is the most incompetent coach in the league, who continually takes talent-loaded teams, and turns them into teams that can't even reach .500. Rondo is ball-dominant, and is a weak perimeter shooter. We are already seeing what happens when you pair Kobe with a ball-dominant guard in Nash. Kobe needs a role playing type PG, as well as talented bigs, to be successful...Not to mention, a competent coach who doesn't flagrantly misuse his players.

I just spoke w/Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak about supposed D12-for-Rondo trade talks w/Celtics. He denied it strongly....

Y'all are clowns if y'all don't want Rondo. I know it's giving up Dwight but if you really wanna get best value back it's Rajon Rondo no question Lakers get burned every damn year by an opposing PG and with Rondo he will finally fill that void offensively and defensively. And with all that cap space in 2014 Rondo would be the only person on the Lakers roster and it could be easier to attract free agents knowing they will have an elite point guard that can score, drop dimes, and rebound.


Nope. Non-superstars don't attract FAs. And, you can't really bank on that anyway.

The thing about having a legit number 1 guy is that even if you don't attract top level superstars, you can surround him with complimentary pieces and still contend.

now if we could pair up rondo and dwight that'd be kind of cool.

now this is a joke but honestly kobe and nash to boston for rondo and expirings wouldn't kill us. in a future sense. but in a sense of trading kobe i'd hate it with all my guts.

but for fun i think a

KG
bass
pierce
kobe
nash

team would be kind of interesting to watch
