Gasol To Lakers
 
RGM FRONTPAGE. For Kwame, 2 Laker 1sts(which will be like 2nd round picks) and Crittenton. Memphis hands LA the keys to the west.

CELTICS LAKERS FINALS REBORN.

Belsius 02-01-2008 03:35 PM

Dr. J. Naismith 02-01-2008 03:48 PM

WOW, now if the Lakers can stay healthy they'll be a tough team to beat. :(

Claudius 02-01-2008 03:49 PM

He better be... :D

On paper Lakers can be really good now... on paper that is... in reality... who knows? :cheeky-smiley-013:

MangoKidHoops 02-01-2008 04:07 PM

Yup, Kwame is expiring...and Collins expires after next year. Looks like Memphis is gonna do the ol' tank and in the process try to free up some cap space.

How can they not be at least 2x better?

In the triangle having Gasol handle it in the mid post instead of Odom? Gasol in the post instead of Odom? Gasol being able to make a 15 foot shot unlike Odom?

It'll be interesting to see if Odom fades into obscurity now being the 4th wheel. Lakers may be better off starting a shooter at SF because its hard to see how Odom fits in when he isnt gonna touch it much anymore.

Belsius 02-01-2008 06:09 PM

Definetly the Lakers look pretty good now, I like them a lot. Although and I dont like gasol a lot. Gasol+Bryan is pretty sweet.

INSIDER 02-01-2008 07:18 PM

lakers will be soooooo dangerous!

look at their front court when bynum is back... add in kobe...
wow. just wow.

Jay 02-02-2008 01:07 AM

Well, the thing right now is that Gasol is going to have to play centre until the injuries are all taken care of, then he'll be able to go back to PF. I'm not sure I'm as big of a fan of this trade as everyone else seems to be. I think there may be some trouble sharing the ball...

Like what Memphis is doing though, clearing room.

You're thinking of the wrong 'clearling room' (which usually means for capspace to go after bigtime players in the offseason). Theyre doing this so they can sell the team, not go after the Calderons and Baron Davis' of free agency.

Theyre gonna friggin waive Kwame Brown. The NBA should fine them substantially for this bs.

Jay 02-02-2008 02:17 PM

The team never should have been there in the first place, so I don't care at all about them moving. Tank the team, clear space, move to a new city, sign a few FAs with your newly found wealth...sounds like a decent plan to me.

Gonna be hard to do that when their GM is worse than Babcock.

Kuzzy 02-02-2008 10:39 PM

what a stupid trade.
Lakers
Bynum Gasol Odom
to much presence in the paint for the ball to go around
Trade odom for a sharp shooter

Kuzzy 02-02-2008 10:40 PM

but ofcourse aquiring Gasol
for trash
Good things to come :)

Sick, Wicked and Nasty! 02-04-2008 09:13 AM

I think this deal makes LA a contender for sure. They were in my mind overachieving prior to the deal a little bit. With Bynum and Gasol in the front court they will be deadly.
