OK, I WAS WATCHING ESPN AND THEY SAID THAT THE BULLS ARE GOING TO SIGN AND TRADE BENGORADON, SO YOU THINK THAT LAMAR ODOM FOR BEN ORDON IS A GOOD DEAL?

BESIDES THEY WERE GOING TO MOVE LO TO THE GAURD SPOT AND KOBE TO THE 3 ANYWAY.

First of all, no to your original idea. We don't need a one dimensional, undersized shooter being paid $14 million.

Secondly, where the hell did you get the idea that Odom is going to be our guard and Kobe is going to play the 3?

Stop using all caps. :mad:

Hell No. Let's trade a 15 and 10 player for a one dimensional player that doesn't play defense. :beers: Do you really want Luke starting at SF? :blink:

Moving Kobe to the 3 is a horrible decision.

Undersized SG who is a streaky shooter, doesn't play much D, and wants to get paid?

The Lakers aren't going to sign and trade for a SG looking for a big score. With Gasol, Bynum's upcoming extension, and Kobe's possible opt out for more money, it makes zero sense to add another long term salary on a player that we don't need at all.

Ben Gordon for Lamar? Haha i don't think so. Gordon is totally overrated, wildly inconsistent [more than Lamar], no defense, undersized, 2 guard in a point guard's body.

No. No. No. No. No.

Terrible idea. You need to watch Gordon on a regular basis. If his shot isn't falling he provides literally nothing else. Odom is a far better player.

No way :D

The only thing I would trade LO for is a true SF who has a perimeter game and has adequate experience playing the position.

I like Ben Gordon. He did pretty well for my fantasy team a few years back. He's had a few 40-point games (I think) and had that one game when he shot 9/9 three's. But realistically, he's a spark plug OFF the bench and doesn't do anything except score points. Kobe is VERY effective moving up to SF in certain situations during a game. However, I'm not so sure he'd be as effective if he logged heavy minutes. He's 6-6, 205lbs and fares better guarding smaller, quicker players rather than bulky forwards like LBJ, Carmelo, and Pierce (although Kobe will shut all of them down during crunch time :D )

If we get anyone from the Bulls, I want Hinrich or Deng, please (and Deng isn't going anywhere). I like Gordon, but he's not fit for this team unless Kobe is gone.
