so you're hoping some RF members are among those insiders? since you're seeking confirmation.

I have a friend who's a die-hard Lakers fan and he said that if he was ever offered Bosh for Bynum, he'd take it and run, then hide in the corner and giggle like a school-girl. He wouldn't even need a second to think about it.

We could build a nice core around Bynum but we would never win a championship because the Lakers would win 6 more.

Yeah but really Bynum for Bosh is a joke...

When it was originally reported i remember reading "The Lakers may be prepared to offer Bynum for Bosh straight up" and i was thinking, they'd have to be high to think that Bynum would be enough to get Bosh, not only does that seriously undervalue Bosh, but it also really overvalues Bynum. Even tho the guy is pretty good.

Bynum without Kobe and Gasol is pretty average. It would not make me overly thrilled. And seeing Bosh in Laker colors would be nauseating.

Bynum doesn't have his head straight on sometimes has missed a lot of time in his career due to injuries

I don't think a guy voted #5 on race to the MVP should be traded for any team's 3rd option.

Bosh is in a category with Kobe now, not Bynum.

Oh my god.

Category with Kobe, lay off the koolaid man.


Dumbest post I have ever read from you, and that is really saying something.

Bosh in Kobe's category.

Bosh one of the best players on the planet, all because he is number 5 in mvp race. best player on a barely over 500 team is in the same calss as kobe.

Fuck.

Bosh isn't one of the best players on the planet? You really really really need to take a look at what you're posting.

You made so many idiotic claims in the summer how Bosh had plateaud and that we should trade him to GSW. And I said that Bosh is a top 10 player in the league. My claims have been proven true... and well.. GSW is one of the worst teams in the league.

Kobe plays with an all-nba first team defender, an all-star postman who used to win 50 games on a team by himself anyway and the greatest coach of all time.

And I didn't say Bosh was as good as Kobe did I?

Wow, Bosh has put up a massive 0.8 points per game more,(not impressive) and 1.5 rebounds(that is impressive) FG% is up a little not much, and his offensive rating is up a little as well.

He is down in every other statistical category including assists, Blocks, Rebounds, Turnovers(actually up), and defensive rating.

Free throws per game are the same


Me saying he plateaued is not a stretch at all and other than rebounding better he hasnt done ANYTHING to make me think otherwise. Contract year accounts for the slight improvement in other areas.



note: Numbers based off this time last season.

Bosh >>> Byrum ... that's obvious and Lakers would take it run. They probably could win 5/6 championships in a row.
