    U guys realy think that Love can get you more than 12 boards next to bynum and odom? HELL NO!!!! Ho was the other rebounders at minesota? NONE!!! They lost 90% of their games nobody even bothered to get in for the board!!! Do you think he can get 20 p a game next to KB bynum and odom? HELL NO!!! Now, most of Loves rebounds came of his own miss right at the rim… So a rebound shoot miss then tip wil give you two boards!!!! Come on guys. Now since he is a good shooter he would space it out for the lakers and make it easier for lakers guards. I would reather go for a good PG and get Fish out. They also need a good 3p shooter. They had farmar and Sasha. They was way better then Barnes + Blake! WAY WAY BETTER! So get me dwight for bynum, throw odom fish blake for CP3 and you get not one, not two, not three….. you get it, we talking about rings…

    I would love to have d-howard and cp3 but here’s the problem YK24, the only comparable big man in the game for howard is bynum and maybe a filler but its a trade that no other team can make.  The only other team would of been Portland if Oden was not out due to very bad knees.  As far as CP3 well here is the issue.  Why would they accept our old unproductive players if other teams will offer younger, faster and more athletic ones?  Would you trade CP3 for our players?  We have Mr. Unreliable in Odom, Mr. Power wheelchair in Fisher and Mr. Disapointment in Blake.  For CP3 who if he didn’t run out of gas would of beat us in the first round.

      I know cp3 would be hard to get, and i just mentioned Odom, Blake & Fish because those are the guys i would dropp. Now i dont know, i would easy have cp on my team. If say CP3 came over, that would make the whole starting so complete, not Miami where u just have to stars at same position. Now you would still have Brown, Barnes, Walton of the bench, well get inn a guy or two more and ur fine. Starting would beat evry team. Now i know i just set up a dream team, but lakers often make some imposible moves… I totaly get its unrealistic and if they was about to trade CP3 the whole world would get in line… But please no Love for Gasol… Not Love and nr2 pick. You just dont bring a rookie to help you get a ring. And he is not that good.
