2012-13 Los Angeles Lakers Thread

I don't think Howard is very "trade able " anyways. He would have to sign and trade Bc he really hasn't abandoned his desire to go to the Nets this offseason.

We Laker fans have been spoiled as f**k. That's why haven't gotten too upset about this season. Not that I'm happy about it, but s**t. We've been seriously spoiled.

exactly. The niners sucking for a whole decade really made me appreciate how the Lakers competed for a championship year in year out. I can deal with it for now. Lets hope the suckage doesn't last long though

Lakers need to blow this team up. The future is not bright for this group and I would try to move Howard right now to get some young talent and picks. Obviously the guy isnt coming back next year.

Well thank god haters like you aren't in charge.

LOL. You can be happy next year then when Howard is gone, you have nothing in return, Gasol is on the hook for another 19 million, and the key players are closer to the retirement home. Sometimes you just have to move on. I wouldnt expect a Laker homer to agree with me but I think it really is time to blow it up. JMHO.

Howard stands to lose a LOT of money of he leaves the Lakers. Something you haters seem to think has no effect on the situation. You say the future isn't bright and the Lakers should move their youngest brightest star, then back up your argument by giving examples of all the older superstars making s**t loads of money.


Do you see the flaw in your argument?

how does he stand to lose a lot of money? He isnt gonna go play for the houston rockets

he will play for the nets or another big market team and get endorsement deals

Griffin is getting a lot of endorsements with his time on The Clippers. So I don't think leaving the lakers will hurt that much financially.
Watch old Kobe wind up going undefeated on the road trip lmao

Do you know what "Bird Rights" are?

Yeah he won't leave just like LeBron, Bosh, Amare, etc. Bird rights don't keep players on teams they dont want to be on all they do is get you a trade exception in return.

I didn't say he won't leave. I said he stands to lose a lot of money if he did. Then ads asked how that was. And I answered it. Try to follow along, reigny.

It isn't that much money. Pay per year isn't that much of a decrease.
Ty Lawson lol's at Lakers

The rules are different now with the new CBA. Can't do the same sign & trade scenario that those guys did without giving up your Bird Rights.
The only teams with an outside chance of landing Howard are Dallas or Atlanta, IMO. Can't see him going to Utah, Washington, Charlotte, or Detroit.

That's right, forgot about them. I'd be very surprised. Howard let them know in no uncertain terms this past offseason that he didn't want to go there. Perhaps he'd have a chance of heart, but I think it's unlikely.

I just think he is going to want out of LA after this season unless things really turn around. So, he might have to change his mind on a couple of teams.
