TRADE DEADLINE Update

Dwight Howard is a big bitch and if I were the Magic I’d let him go where he wanted. How could you promise a player to pick the next manager and coach? Is he REALLY that important? Ugh Dwight, even my bro Lebron wasn’t that much of a big cry baby.

But want to know about BIG NAMES that actually DO matter and will probably get traded?

Michael Beasley

Well Michael Beasley is coming to the Lakers which I’m just PSYCHED about! I’ll trade Steve Blake for him ANY DAY! I can’t wait to get my hands on a Beasley Lakers jersey. Haha. I know the Lakers need a point guard more than anything but I’m sure having Skittles won’t HURT the team any more than Blake HELPED the team. Yay!

Deron Williams

So since the Nets aren’t getting Deron Williams he’s out of there but who knows where he will end up. Sorry Nets…after you guys were trying to make it too. Maybe during the drafts you could pick up someone new.

Gerald Wallace

I’m sorry Trailblazers but your team is going to be a mess after today. All your star players are leaving for a better team and especially after that 42 point upset against the Knicks yesterday it’s no surprise everyone wants out. I would want out too if I got beat by the Knicks who haven’t won a single game this month. I mean for god’s sake D’Antoni resigned yesterday AND THEN they won? It’s not like he was the main root of their problems. They’re still going to need to figure out what to do about the team. One win on a whim isn’t going to be good enough to make it back to playoff status.

Teams most likely to acquire Wallace are Larry Bird’s Pacers or the Orlando Magic. This could be taken as an attempt by the Magic to appease the god known as DH. UGH. I hope they DON’T get Wallace. Howard doesn’t deserve anything at this point. GO SUCK IT, REALLY THOUGH.

Jamal Crawford

Like I said, he’ll be in a 3 way trade with Beasley and Blake.

Pau Gasol

Being a life long Laker fan it’s going to be sad to have to say goodbye to Pau but this game IS a business and I understand that it has to be run like a business. LA’s going to miss you Pau! Stay strong!

Where is he headed? Either the Houston Rockets or the Chicago Bulls.

The Rockets have had their eye on Gasol ever since the beginning of the season and they have what the Lakers need, a point guard and maybe that’s just what we’ll get. Hopefully a half decent one at least! DEAR GOD NO MORE SHITTY TRADES!

OR

The Bulls have been showing interest in him as of late trying to build up their All Star team. Who would they give up for Pau though? Would be be on the bench a lot more than? Hmmm…

Paul Pierce

Paul Pierce has been a Celtic his whole NBA career, 12 straight and solid years of loyalty and what does Danny Ainge want to do? He wants to trade him. With who? The Trailblazers. Yeah, I know. UGH. It’s not really clear what he asked for in return but I wouldn’t give up Pierce for anything less than AWESOME. I don’t like Paul Pierce as a person but I can admit that he’s an amazing player and that he too shouldn’t be traded for peanuts. I thought he could be the Steve Nash of the Celtics and just live out his career there. UGH DANNY. Causing problems for everyone during the trade talk season. Although after everything the Trailblazers will be giving up it would be a godsend if Pierce were to magically show up but I doubt that it’s going to happen and I rather it not.

Ray Allen

A lot of teams have been scoping out Ray Allen as well. Top contenders? The Indiana Pacers and the Clippers who have been struggling since Billups went down. DON’T DO IT RAY ALLEN! DON’T PLAY FOR THE CLIPPERS!!!!!!!

SO CLOSE YOU GUYS!

Lake show does it again!

And the Lake Show is on a roll!

Lakers were leading by 15 then tied and it was a close game from the 2nd half on. The Celtics started bringing their game and the Lakers couldn’t stop the Turnovers but it turned out to be an amazing game among lifetime NBA rival teams.

You guys can watch full highlights here. Bynum was on a roll today! All day he was making difficult layup shots and even helping Kobe’s game by knocking in a couple. Fuck it was spectacular!

Ron Artest was ON Rondo like a beast!

What I’m disappointed about? The 17 fuckin turnovers in comparison to the 12 that the Celtics had.

Kobe was of course the leading scorer today with 26 points, then Rondo with 24. Rondo’s been killing it on the road this season and in conjunction with Pierce, they’re still pretty good.

Bynum had 14 rebounds and Pau 13. Overall our shooting was spectacular today! (Except for the free throws, which we’re usually pretty decent at).

Lakers Shooting Stats

FGM-A = 50.7%
3PM-A = 50.0%
FTM-A = 65.4%

That’s pretty phenomenal compared to how we’ve been doing the rest of the season.

Celtics Shooting Stats

FGM-A = 47.0%
3PM-A = 35.3%
FTM-A =  83.3%

FUN FACTS!

* The Lakers and the Celtics have met 12 times in the Finals

* The Celtics have won 17 championships and the Lakers have won 16. Combined that makes 33 out of the total 65 NBA Championship games. That’s more than half!

* The Lakers have been in 31 NBA Finals where the Celtics have been in 21.

* The Lakers have won 8 Season MVP awards and 12 Finals MVP awards.

* The Celtics have produced the most number of MVP winners with 10.

 I mean just WATCH this! Bynum lobs it in for Kobe!

Oddly enough I was wearing my Allen Iverson jersey today…oh well.

And no I didn’t watch the game from the stadium or from the comfort of my own home. I actually haven’t had tv in years. Sooo….I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to work out so I went to the gym to watch the second half of the game.

I actually ended up staying the rest of the 3rd quarter and all of the 4th quarter on the treadmill. I ran about 3 miles and burned over 400 calories by running at an incline. FUCK IT WAS INTENSE! And since I had such a great workout I treated myself with a trip to the grocery store!

I went a little crazy…

Yay! This is the crap that I eat! Now I can enjoy some nice Salmon Crostini while watching an episode of Chopped. But really, after that, I have to get back to writing my contextualization on deconstructionism…it’s getting there…

Now the Lakers are 3rd in the Western Conference with a PCT of 0.610! I’m so proud of you guys!

Yay!

Trade Deadlines

Because Mark and I started talking about possible trades and what the Lakers were going to do if anything so I thought it would be a good opportunity to see what other people think is going to happen.

So the Lakers either need a Point Guard or a Small Forward. (More a Point Guard, but yeah).

The Lakers need to make this happen! We still have our $9 million trade exception we got from trading Lamar Odom. So we scared off DH (Center), we REALLY don’t want Steve Nash. Best possible option? That’s right!

Trading with the Celtics

Scary to think of but it’d be perfect. Who’s our top choice? Rajon Rondo.

The Lakers are also considering Johnny Flynn and Ramon Sessions.

Other options are getting Allen Iverson back into the NBA (he has been aching for some cash and I’d LOVE to see him on the Lakers, for my own personal reasons) and Gilbert Arenas (meh).

I love you Derek Fisher but the Lakers need to get rid of you AND Ron Artest. Sad but true. The Lakers might end up trading Pau Gasol as well.

What might go down:

Lakers trading Pau Gasol & Darius Morris & Mavericks #1 pick FOR Celtics Rajon Rondo and Jermaine O’ Neal

Lakers trading Pau Gasol & Matt Barnes & Darius Morris & Lakers #1 pick & Mavericks #1 pick FOR Celtics Rajon Rondo and Paul Pierce
Along with trading the Lakers TPE for Jermaine O’ Neal

Lakers trading Pau Gasol FOR Timberwolves Derrick Williams & Future Draft Picks

Lakers giving up cash & future draft picks FOR Timberwolves Michael Beasley

Lakers giving up either Pau Gasol or Andrew Bynum FOR Nets Deron Williams

Let’s just make something awesome happen! Come on Lakers!
