wud u deal bynum in order to get harrington? al harrington is a very good player he averaged 19 and 7 boards. i think he wud be very valuable to us. i like our team now, but i wud feel more comfortable with another player like harrington. lets get bonzi wells. he cant get a big offer now, let trade some ppl away to get him. he was dynamite in the playoffs last season. averaged 23 and 12 boards against the spurs! yall kno the spurs aint a soft amatuer team.

BYNUM CAN GO BECAUSE HE STILL A FEW YEARS AWAY FROM BEING A FULL TIME STARTER AND BY THAT TIME THE LAKERS COULD POSIBLY GET HIM BACK...

I think the Lakers should rather trade Kwame Brown or Chris Mihm and try to get Al Harrington. kobe can play point, Radmonavic at the two, harrington at the three, odom at the four and Bynum at center. what do you all think?

if we can trade harrington without giving the hawks bynum...i dont mind...but if they say they want want bynum and they will give us harrington, then we have to accept.

If you think radmanovic has the ability to play the 2 at the nba level, perhaps you need an examination........

IF WE CAN TRADE,mIMS, COOK,MCKIE AND ANOTHER PLAYER FOR HARRINGTON, IT WOULD WORK, KEEP THE BIG FELLOW, LET HIM DEVELOP WITH FARMAR AND THEY WILL BE THE FUTURE OF THE LAKERS.

we need to keep mihm he was our best big till he got hurt and if we had him against pheinix we would have won and we dont even know if farmar and bynum are busts or if thre something special like i said give bynum about a month or two, see how hes doing and how the lakers as a team are holdin up, and then make a deal

What about Kobe as point, Walton as two, Odom as small forward, Kome as power forward and Minn as Center?

I think we need to give Bynum some more minutes in meaninful periods to see if there are possibilities

do you follow basketball at all? firt let me say that is not a horrible lineup if the lakers opponents go big and last season chris and kwame did not play well together at the same time the lakers best bet is what worked in the playoffs well what did work till they fell 3 in a row with kwame, lamar, new addition radmonovich, kobe, and smush, williams or possible farmar

Sounds about right... Mihm could possibly start for Kobe's Lakers next season, moving Odom to the Point 4 and Harrington or Radman at the 3 and the other 6th man will make Kobe's Lakers INSTANT TITLE CONTENDERS, IF KUTTCHEKKS IS WORTH ANYTHING HE WILL MAKE THIS (BYNUM/HARRINGTON TRADE)HAPPEN. HE DOESN'T MAKE IT WORK, GIVE HIS JOB TO PHIL OR MAGIK!!

You know, when the Hornets drafted Kobe 11 years ago, they figured 'well he's a young player and hasn't proved anything yet, we'd rather have someone who is proven to be a consistent role player and someone who contribute regularly.' Do you think, if they could go back in time, they would make that same decision? HELL NO! Bynum hasn't proven anything yet, but the guy is an investment and its good to keep him and develope him. Kobe's got another 6 great years and maybe 2 or 3 more good years after that ahead of him, and in that time, if Bynum blossoms into the next dominant big man, that could be the return of the Lakers dynasty. I know its dreaming big, but you gotta look at the best possibilities.

And for those who don't remember, I was refering to the Hornets' decision to trade Kobe for Vlade Divac.

NEVER trade ANDREW! lakers must look to the future, not the short-term like the heat... BYNUM isn't there yet, but he will be. don't you know that bynum and kobe were the only sure players to NOT be traded this past year. i've witnessed his talent in the NBA and in the summer pro league for a couple years now... remember what he did to shaq last year?
please trade mihm or lamar before considering anyone else...

Heh well we do need to take advantage of Kobe's greatness while he's still in his prime, but I definately don't think that should involve moving Bynum. And I think Lamar is going to have a break through season this year, if not, then we should trade him. Mihm is expendable, if we can trade him and a couple of bench guys for a good contributor.
