Lakers get Pau Gasol.

I don't know if they're the team to beat out West.
I still think the Spurs are better.
I have a hard time seeing him in Laker's jersey.
It seems like he could really shine out there, and be 20 ppg scorer.
Someone said the Lakers now have the best talent in the league.
Lakers talent > Celtics talent. I lawled

Both Odom and Gasol are very smart posts. I really look forward to seeing them play together as well as the ever improving Bynum.

Gasol will have a huge leap in scoring.

Shaq goes to Suns for Marion and Banks. I know this is now old news...but I thought I'd keep the thread updates. I hate Marion..he wanted to leave because he couldn't stand not being the #1 go to guy on the team. I also dont think Wade and him will have much chemistry.

What the f....?
I had no idea. Well, most basketball insiders think Shawn Marion is the most underrated player in the league, and I think he's pretty good. I wouldn't say I particularly care for him that much (or that 1st grade looking, volleyball-setting, push the ball up from your chest jump shot of his), but I think he makes them a lot better team. I definitely predict the Heat are back in the playoffs next year. As for the Suns, I don't know why they'd want a slow, old man on their team with their hyper-up tempo style of play, but not like the Suns are ever going to win anything anyway.

Shawn Marion wanted to leave...why would you keep someone with that attitude. Shaq has really never had a REAL power forward to play with...I think we'll see some interesting stuff from him and Stode.

Miltamec Soundsquinaez 02-07-2008 05:43 PM

That's true. I would actually give them a better chance next year.
Shaq off season rehab, then make one last finals push, then I think he still has one more year on his contract after that. I think the trade actually benefited both teams.
Kind of like that Boston/Minnesota trade :P

Fast breaks almost always are with the 1, 2, and 3 spots, the center almost never is in on it.

Dwight Howard won the dunk contest........
I don't even know who won the all-star game, or care
I guess DH didn't even make his final dunk, and won it anyway, that reminds me of that year that Nate Robinson won it, and made the dunk on, like, his 1,000th attempt.
Gerald Green did a dunk where he went up and blew out a candle in a cupcake on the rim, now that takes hops. I haven't seen it, but he would have had to have his head above the rim..........I would have like to seen that one win it.
They ought to be bring Josh Smith back, btw, who is a legitimate candidate for Defensive POY.

JKidd is dealt to the Mavs.........from what I've heard. Goes back to town he started in, only this time they're good. I would actually like to see him play with Nowitzki, the Mavs are pretty up tempo. I'm impressed by Kidd's longevity, seems like he's still near All-Star playing level. Pretty impressive for 14th year guy.

how about the Cleveland boys both winning All Star MVP's

LeBron (of course) and Boobie Gibson

shame everyone else on the roster except AV and Big Z suck right now
