This is another bad day for Laker fans.The rumors keep flowing on just about every NBA sites I've been on.So much stuff out there about KOBE,Lakers,Dr. Buss,Mitch(The B-word) and so on! I can't believe how screwed up my team is,it is a real bad situation right now in Lakerland! What will Kobe do?What will Phil do? Buss? Mitch? So much in the air right now. Well these are some trades that have been flying around and I'm going to tackle them with MY point of view. O.K. first of all I DO NOT want KOBE TRADED! That is for all the lakers fans including me that loves kobe and do not want to see him go anywhere. Now if keeping KOBE is not an option,this is how I feel. This opinion is only addressing the KOBE trade and the key figures involved.Of course their could be other players involved just to make some of these deals to go through. I'm not getting into those until I hear more details.
A Dallas Trade: The rumors that I heard were (G)J. Terry, Age (30)16.7ppg,2.9rpg,5.2apg and (G)J.Howard, Age(27) 18.9ppg,6.8rpg,1.8apg Both of these players I think are good ballers.I just don't like trading with dallas and I really don't see it being a benefit getting rid of a great guard for 2 good guards.Would that get the lakers farther in the playoffs? I don't think so!We still would need alot of help up front and in the center!
A Chicago Trade: Rumors were (G)L. Deng, Age(22)18.8ppg,7.1rpg,2.5apg and (G)K.Hinrich, Age(26)16.6ppg,3.4rpg,6.3apg. Very good players also.Not on KOBE's level but oh well. I think these players would fit very good in the triangle. Nice young talent but not rookies.Both have been in the playoffs.But this does not address the week front line and Center.Tyrus Thomas is said to be part of this but will he start over the guys we already have and make this team better right now?I don't think so!
A Pheonix trade: Rumors I have heard say: (F)S.Marion, Age(29)17.5ppg,9.8rpg,1.7apg and (G)L.Barbosa, Age(24)18.1ppg,2.7rpg,4.0apg These guys speak for themselves.Both ballers and lots of playoff time for both.This also addresses the need for help up front.ODOM and MATRIX up front is pretty damb good.Barboso and Fish sounds good to.Speed and defense!The big problem I see with this is what it would do for PHX.I think it would put them tops in the west and that does no good for the lakers.They would be a very scary team to face.
Tell you what Dr.Buss, why don't you just get KOBE some help and we won't have to worry about any of this anymore.I am starting to feel it might be too late though!The one thing I do know is there wiil be alot more offers so maybe something better will come up.I know It's wishfull thinking.
