I'd rather have Pau as center and lay Clark at the four..

But yall do need to accept a major possibility that I brought up at mid season.

A possibility you all wrote off by giving me the generic "theres no way D12 leaves LA were the greatest everyone wants to play here" rhetoric.

 

If D12 bolts we essentially traded Bynum (WHILE HEALTHY and still trade-able) for nothing.

 

Not that he has any equity NOW as a player on the roster but he did then. Otherwise the trade would have never worked. We could have traded him for Draft Picks easy. At least we'd have something to show for it. Oh well.

we traded Bynum fo a player who played.

 

What you are really complaining about is an "idea", not anything tangible.

Doubt we would have had Drew after this season, anyway.  He would have left via FA.

 

And we did get Earl Clark out of the deal as well...not an all-star, but at one point just months ago, he was giving us borderline all-star numbers before D'Antoni started messing with his minutes and his positions on the court.

Yea he woulda bolted.

And true Earl was a piece of that deal. Hes a contributor. So atleast we have something to show for it. Neither way am I mad. I think D12 wouldnt even be thinking of leaving the Lakers if KB didnt get hurt. They progressed a lot towards the end of the season. But it is what it is. Cant blame the guy for considering all the current facts in his decision.

Dallas will go after him if they realize they have no shot at Howard, but Cleveland is a dark horse.

The right place for Bynum is Phoenix - who has a good medical staff.

bynum would demand more than the mmle that the lakers could offer and hasnt played in a year. someone will risk it with him because of how thin that position really is in todays game, but it wont be the lakers. plus he is just another p.i.t.a big man.

 

with that said, i still think the p.i.t.a big man we already have will stay, even though there arent any gre at indicators of that.

Abdul-Jabbar told the San Francisco Chronicle last month he met Howard only once and that Howard expressed an interest in learning from the former Lakers captain but he never again reached out to Abdul-Jabbar.

‘He’s charming, he’s charismatic, very nice young man,’ Abdul-Jabbar said. ‘Maturity-wise, he doesn’t get it.’
