not to beat a dead horse, but:

"Kevin Garnett and Mike James

for

Lamar Odom, Kwame Brown, Brian Cook, Vladimir Radmanovic, and a 2008 unprotected first round draft pick"
(article)

I LIKE IT.

okay, back to that playoff mindset. so 7th place (yes!), perhaps 8th place (no mavs!)?
7th seed- the lakers players and coaches better be mastering the strategies of each and every one of thosee 20 teams who beat the suns. i'm dying for the upset/revenge!

perhaps more of this ZONE defense? it seems to be working okay at times.
any thoughts?

lol...i kno a lot of u think im mad, but i want the mavs! i think we have a better chance of beating them than the suns! i dont mind though i do want revenge against the suns too! yes we must employ a zone defence! it was the only time i saw our defence actually look good! i kno phil jax doesnt like it! but u have to to work with what u get, and this team cant play D, so lets put in a zone! against either suns or mavs is will be good to stop penetration and fast break opportunites! i kno we as a unit (or kobe) can score! we always get around 100 pts, we need to stop the other teams 4 times to get 4 wins!

hey kobe is 1 hows it going? nope I dont think your mad at all I see you thinking, the mavs dont have as talented a team as the suns they just play hard together, dirk and howard are there main threats who else do they have, jason terry? not much there, and dirk is known to choke in big games im really not afraid or dirk I suppose everyone is just caught up in the revenge factor, the problem is we didnt look good against the mavs this year but you know what I do think we match up well with this team too, however they do play good defense and they can run, I dont care anymore bring on any team, I always say it shouldnt matter who you have to face if you really are meant to win the championship you will beat any team that comes your way, so no my friend I dont think your mad at all.

Be careful what you wish for...
I think that Dallas is probably a better matchup for LA, also, but I can't see you guys dropping to the 8th seed (unless it's on purpose). A G-State and PHX series would be like watching 80's b-ball, a high scoring, high flying, offensive battle! While it would be nice to send Phil and his crew fishing, I'd get more pleasure out of knocking S.A. and Dallas out!
GO SUNS!!!!!!!!!!

As far as the subject of this post...I think my Suns should get into the KG sweepstakes! let's see:
PHX-
07 1st rd pick (lottery from ATL)
SF/PF-Boris Diaw
PG-Marcus Banks
C-Kurt Thomas

MINN-
K.G.

Now that's a good deal! Minnesota gets a PG that they're familiar with, a swingman that has a lot of upside and a lottery pick in an extremely deep draft!

bring on those suns! it's true though, the spurs, the suns, the mavs will all have to go down anyway to get where we want to go eventually, so it really doesn't matter.

lol thats a funny joke, you are kidding right? there is no way mchale would go for that, plus you guys are in the west makes it even harder, you would have to give up one of your main guys, amare or marion cause I know you wont give up nash, then they will probably want diaw or barbosa, mabye bell as well, they will take your pick, like I said I hope your joking cause you will kill your team trying to get KG your better off not getting KG, plus dont change this team yet I still want my revenge lol, and if you really want kg give mchale some of the stuff your smoking cause that suggestion is a pipe dream.(you know I just say that to mess with you)

thx dude!! look i kno we havent played well against them but the truth is lamar odom didnt play in one of those games! not one of them! he can take our dirk if he can produce the way we kno how, the mavs struggle in the zone Defence as well, apart from terry and dirk they cant shoot great! so we can do this then! against the suns u cant really cos they are a great shooting team! but u said it well...u have to beat the best teams anyway so it doesnt matter who we play and when we play them, we just gotta got out there and do it! yeh i hope the lakers are going to forget the horrible second part of the season and just start fresh with all our pieces together now believe it or not.

Exactly just close your eyes and ram through the playoffs and if you hit a wall so be it at least tried, for some reason all the years I known dirk I have never been afraid when the lakers face him, perhaps we havent faced him enough in the playoffs but hes soft on defense and his biggest thing is he can shoot, lamar and dirk would have a great battle especially if lamar plays the way he did in the last playoffs and takes it in on dirk make dirk work hard cause hes not a good defensive player, jeson terry should just be guarded at all times from behind the arch, and stop this double teaming crap because the lakers are not quick enough in their rotations they will eat them alive with 3 if they do that, but it looks like we are gonna face the pick your poision suns at least with these guys you take more pleasure in beating them either way its gonna be fun, GO LAKERS!
