Wow, can't help but feel for Orlando (even though I've been believing in Gold and Purple for awhile now); Dwight leaves for basically complementary guys (Afflalo, Harrington and etc.) and average pieces (Philly, L.A. and Denver are all playoff teams and their 1st picks don't yield much value in return) whereas Philly gets Bynum (2nd best center for a perimeter team) and J-Rich can replace part of what A.I. brought before he left in terms of explosiveness, athleticism, etc. though he's older. Denver also gets an All-Star scorer for a couple of average roster pieces in the guys they dealt to Orlando.

Enjoy the basement alongside the post-Lebron Cavaliers, Orlando!

Also, looking forward to seeing

Metta - Dwight - Pau
Nash - Kobe

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.


Jesus LOVES YOU!
2012, meet Matthew 24:36-47!

The Lakers took it a step further than Miami. They have a big 4 while most teams are looking for the big 3.

How do they have the cap space to keep Gasol?

The Heat have no one to match Howard at center because Bosh isn't physical enough to withstand the pounding inside.

Looking forward to the draft and off-season moves. This team needs major changes.

 

Needs to get more skilled,physical, faster, younger.

Can anybody tell me what kind of a player Howard is? I don't know too much about Basketball so maybe compare him to an NHL player. I hear he's really good at D and i'm assuming he's good offensively.

If he were an NHL player he'd be someone who is strong around the net. That's what Howard does. He positions himself close to the basket. Due to his height, he generally gets a lot of rebounds both offensively and defensively and gets a fair amount of blocks. 3 or 4 time defensive player of the year.

The dream team Lakers make their debut tonight. Will be interesting to see how Nash handles the ego's of Kobe and Howard and if they will butt heads if things go rough early on.

Don't know why OKC would trade Harden.

Also Ray Allen playing against his former team as a member of the Heat.

Who needs hockey when you have football and basketball to watch?

They traded him because he turned down a 4 yr. 53 million dollar contract extension.

The harden trade was a great one. Yes harden was a great sixth man but remember the key word here is SIXTH MAN. They don't have their top defenders guarding him

Meanwhile kevin martin is a great starter and should take over sefolosha now as starting SG. OKC's starting five just got a lot better, though they lost a ton of bench points

Very entertaining game between the Heat and Celtics. I watched the second half of the Lakers and Mavs game also. Not as fun to watch as Miami and Boston was, but still pretty good.

As an OKC Thunder fan, and longtime hater of the Lakers, I loved watching the chokejob tonight. Dwight Howard cant hit a freethrow to save his life, what was he, 4 of 16? Lakers 39% from the freethrow line, I dont care who you are, but that will cost you alot of games if they dont get that figured out.

Is the bandwagon full yet? So funny seeing people who dont care about basketball all of a sudden become laker fans cause of Nash and Sacre. I love Steve Nash, BC boy, and a huge Canucks and Whitecaps fan, but he plays for one of my 4 most hated sports franchises, got no choice but to hope he and his team chokes, and theyre off to a good start. Portland will be licking their chops tomorrow night and will pummel LA.

Cheering for the Lakers is like cheering for the Yankees or Maple Leafs, you just dont do it.

How about the Lake show getting upset in the season opener by the Mavericks without Nowitzki.

Gonna be interesting to see if Howard and Gasol can co-exsist or if Gasol will be traded by mid-season if it doesn't work out.

Big 3's can work but maybe not a big 4 when you have two bigs who need their touches on offence.

Not too surprising that the Lakers lost. Just like the Heat, they need to get their chemistry figured out first before they can start to really be effective.

My favorite player is Dwight Howard -- but I'm not going to be a Laker fan. They're a good team but Dwight is just a wannabe Shaq right now. Used to be a Magic fan, after Dwight was traded I realized I only liked them cause of him though.

I've decided to hop on the Brooklyn bandwagon, biggest reason is Dwight will probably head there when Kobe and Nash reitre in about two seasons. I'm also a pretty big Trailblazers fan (my 2nd favorite team) hopefully they can get back into the playoffs soon.
