Well to me if they could get a sign and trade deal with the sonics and get rashard lewis which is not better than KG or JO but it wouldnt cost odom to bring him here and hes a deadly shooter who averaged around 22 points a game. no disrespect to luke walton, but the lakers lacked a deadly consistant shooter all year long, this guy is a sharp shooter who would spread the defense, you get him and sign mo williams you got your point guard and you get another allstar on this team...Jason kidd would be nice to have along with odom and kobe but hes gonna turn 35 I am a bit worried about that, do you think its wise to trade andrew a young center with alot of potential for a guy whos gonna last maybe 3 more seasons, and thats if hes healthy, yeah KG is the best thing to get but I cant see him coming, you think kevin mchale would help the lakers? another thing is why wouldnt he want to trade KG to the east, I just think the KG thing is getting away, we have a much better chance to get JO.

YEAH THAT MAKES SENSE. ALSO THINK ABOUT THIS THOMAS COACHED ONEAL ON THE PACERS AND YOU KNOW HE MIGHT END UP THERE. EITHER WAY HES A SURE BET. LEWIS HUMM I NEED TO WATCH HIM MORE. YOU ARE RIGHT ABOUT CONSISTANT SHOOTER. IM WITH YOU ABOUT KG. I JUST DO NOT THINK HE IS GONNA PACK UP AND LEAVE THE WOLFS. AND I DO NOT SEE MCHALE TRADING HIM. BYNUM THATS A TOUGHIE. WITH ALL THE NEW CHANGES IS IT GONNA BE WORTH KEEPING HIM OR TRADING HIM. I TELL YOU WHAT IT WOULD TAKE ONLY KG FOR ME TO WANT THEM TO TRADE BYNUM, CAUSE IN THE YEARS AHEAD HE IS GONNA BE WORTH IT, I THINK BIG CENTERS ARE ALWAYS GONNA BE IN DEMAND IN THE NBA. IT AMONG OTHER THINGS SEPARATES US FROM THE INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE. BUT I DO LOVE TO WATCH KIDD PLAY, HE HAS SUCH HEART. WHO KNOWS MAYBE HE HAS FOUR OR FIVE LEFT IN HIM. KIDD AND CARTER ARE A FORCE TOGETHER HATE TO SEE THEM APART. MAYBE THEY CAN GET A RING TOGETHER. ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE IN THE NBA. DID YOU CHECK OUT THE MAVS AND GS. WHAT A KICKER. FELT LIKE I WAS BACK IN HIGH SCHOOL WITH THE CROWD SO INTO IT.

It will be interesting to see what happens, I was one of those people that didnt want to trade andrew but I guess KG is an exeption but you know KG has alot of wear and tear and hes 30 now thats the only concern other than that hes the best pf in my mind, so yeah I would go for it..As for J kidd they better not request andrew I be willing to give them some picks and whatever they want but not bynum,kobe or odom, hes just too old and doesnt score consistant enough for my taste, but heart he does have...Oh yeah the goldenstate warriors have shocked the world, the mavs just proved they are chokers but everyone knew that from last years finals, it will be interesting to see how far the warriors go, I will say this the mavs were clearly out coached, avery made no adjustments and I dont think hes that kind of coach, the best thing he does is teach and motivate.

I GUESS IT IS SAFE TO SAY OLE NELLIE DID NOT TEACH HIM EVERYTHING HE KNEW. BUT AT LEAST THEY ARE ADMITTING THEY WERE BEAT. NOT LIKE THE FINALS LAST YEAR. YOU KNOW CUBAN HAS BEEN MORE RESPECTFUL THIS YEAR. I DID FEEL A LITTLE BIT FOR HIM. YOU COULD SEE THIS ONE HURT. LIKE THEY SAY 29 WILL NOT WIN. ONLY ONE.

Yeah it sucks to lose no doubt, even when you dont like someone you still hate to see them down. I have had to learn to like charles, I didnt really like him at first, I thought he was nothing but a trash talker trying to be funny all the time, but I will say this hes a good sport cause they let him have it and tell him things and he takes it well so if your gonna talk trash you better be able to take it and he handles it very well. It depends on who watches him, im ok with him but theres times I want a serious opinion and I just dont take him seriously, and well I dont know what your husband meant either you should ask him.

no I didnt get to watch the rockets jazz but yeah I know it was very close and T mac cried after the game I thought it was very sad to watch him that way, all he kept saying was that he tried, I think the rockets need to get some more help but they dont need any superstar help they just need a couple of pieces here and there and they are fine, and a new coach cause van gundy is apparently leaving thats too bad, how about larry brown I think hes a great coach..Oh yeah and boozer has proven hes a hell of a player cause this is where you find out what players are made of and boozer to me is awsome, funny how he looks more and more like karl malone as these playoffs go by, another player the lakers almost got in a trade.

YOU ARE SO RIGHT ABOUT MORE HELP, JUST LIKE WE DO. I KNOW MY HUBBY REALLY LIKES THE ROCKETS. I DID NOT KNOW THAT ABOUT BOOZER. SOMETIMES YOU JUST DO NOT SEE THEM COMING. LIKE KOBE, DRAFTED 13TH. WHO KNEW. OH I SEE CUBAN IS BACK TO HIS OLD SELF AGAIN. HE NEEDS TO LEAVE HIS MOUTH AT THE DOOR. I THINK HIS TALK IS TO BE MEAN, NOT JUST SHOOTING OFF AND TALKING A LITTLE TRASH. GOOO LAKERS

yeah carlos boozer is amazing, and he was drafted very late in the first round or was 2nd round but hes looking awsome, much like gilbert arenas who was 2nd round as well if my memory serves me correct, tony parker another guy taken late, ginobli another guy taken late, barbosa taken late, I mean its mind boggling the lakers get stuck with guys that dont belong in the nba....Anyways mark cuban feels he can say anything since hes a rich boy and he gets carried away in doing so, your right he needs to shut up sometimes, I didnt like cuban at all before, but I do like that he treats his players well and the players respect him back. From what I seen he gives the other teams props if you beat his team, but he will say alot of stupid things he shouldnt say and he doesnt care about paying for it later, oh well thats just how he is, and I think he likes the attention.

MY HUSBAND SAYS THE SAME THING ABOUT THE NO TALENT IN LAKERS. HE GETS SO PISSED WHEN THE PERIMETER FAILS OR THE POST. HE IS DOING THE TRADING IN OUR LIVING ROOM. BUT NOT KOBE, THOSE IF FIGHTING WORDS WITH HIM. HE REALLY LOVES THE LAKERS. ANYWAY I HAVE A LIST OF WHO I WOULD GET RID OF SOME OF THEM ARE HARD CHOICES. BUT HEY, THEY WANT WIN THEY ARE GONNA HAVE TO SACRAFICE, CAUSE THEY ARE NOT GETTIN IT WITH NO HELP FOR KOBE AND ODOM. KWAME IS A PERSONAL FAV OF MINE, IF WE CAN KEEP HIM HEALTHY, HE DID PRETTY GOOD ONE GAME AGAINST STOUDEMIRE. THERE YOU GO A TOUGH CHOICE. NEED A NEW CENTER, PARKER, HE GOTTA BOOGIE. ALTHOUGH LIKE KWAME HE WILL HAVE A GAME WHERE YOU SEE A SPARK OF WHAT COULD BE. RONNY I WOULD KEEP AS BACK UP CENTER. I HAVE SO MANY MIXED EMOTIONS ABOUT THIS TEAM. GOOO LAKERS

Honestly I do not like thomas no offense, I think hes just trying to save his ass, he got rid of brown and I feel brown didnt have enough time to turn that team around, yup I dont understand the knicks keeping thomas aruond they obviously dont know what there doing caues why in the hell would I want to keep thomas over brown, brown to me is one of the top 3 coaches in the nba, all he does is turn a francise around everywhere he goes but he did not have the time with the knicks. Thomas is terrible as a gm, he makes terrible decisions, hes a better coach I think he should stick to that.
