Make it Happen. Something was seriously wrong on the lakers team this year. Maybe we will find out. But they had a really good roster.
PAu was def not in Playoff form.

I agree. Why would they want a soft as silk center/PF.

get rid of Gasol, Bynum and add Bargs and Dwight Howard.. I don't know how that could be done, but it would workout

Its probably the dirtiest play in basketball in throwing your momentum in to a player who is full steam ahead and in mid air outside of punching a guy. Bynum needs to be punished for 10+ games for it.

PS dont suspensions usually get handed down the day after? No word on anything today
As a matter of clarity, I said I could almost understand that action, as it is at least a plausible mechanism for achieving an end goal that I approve of: stop your opposition from walking through the paint repeatedly. I obviously do not agree any time that a player in any sport takes an action that seems likely to cause injury.

Why was this thread moved?! Cause one guy thought it should? It is only of relevance to TO and possible, previously mentioned trade. Do I have to put "Toronto", "Raptors players" and spell it out?
What could possibly have been my logic to put it in TO's forum and mention Bargnani together with another player he was linked to be in a trade with before??
Do I give a flying +0$$ about Lakers?

Lakers center Andrew Bynum has been suspended for five games next season for his flagrant foul on Dallas guard J.J. Barea in Los Angeles' final playoff game.

The NBA announced the suspension Tuesday, two days after Bynum was ejected for the foul late in the two-time defending champions' 36-point loss to the Mavericks in Game 4. The league also fined Bynum $25,000 for ripping off his jersey while heading to the locker room, which means the suspension will cost Bynum more than $700,000.

Bynum expressed contrition for the episode after his exit interview at the Lakers' training complex earlier Tuesday, saying the foul was "terrible" and "unacceptable."

Bynum said his actions "don't represent me, my upbringing, this franchise or any of the Laker fans out there that want to watch us and want us to succeed," Bynum said. "I want to actually apologize to J.J. Barea for doing that. I'm just glad that he wasn't seriously injured in the event. All I can say is, I've looked at (a replay), it's terrible, and it definitely won't be happening again."

Bynum hit Barea with a flying elbow in the ribs while the Dallas guard drove to the basket for a layup in the fourth quarter. Barea wasn't seriously hurt, but he stayed down for an extended time while Bynum left the court.

Bynum was suspended for two games in March for a hard foul on Minnesota's Michael Beasley under the basket, although that foul didn't have the same element of pure malice that even Bynum acknowledged in his foul on Barea.

Bynum said he was frustrated by the Lakers' awful performance in an elimination game, falling far behind in the first half and never contending. He was less apologetic about the foul immediately after it happened, saying he was frustrated by the Mavericks guards repeatedly driving the lane for baskets.

Same. I think he wanted to get kicked out of the game but that was unnecessary. He should have made a aggressive play going for the ball instead of that lazy cheap shot which made him look like a complete asshole.
