The King of trade bullshit rises again

Who else could I be talking about but the Master of Flip Flop, Mr. Dwight Howard himself.

Everyone is talking about how the Lakers would regret it if we didn’t trade Andrew Bynum for Dwight Howard but is this really the deal that LA has to make? Sure DH may be a tad bit better offensively Bynum is still young and only getting better year after year. The Lakers need to keep their young star players instead of risking them for older washed out players like DH.

Yes Bynum has had his own injuries and problems in the past but nothing like Howard’s recent list of injuries which could affect his rate of play from here on out. Season ending injuries for older players can be career ending as well.

And besides, wasn’t DH supposed to go play bball with his BFF Deron in Jersey? Did I miss something? Although I’m surprised Deron is thinking of staying after all the fuss he made this past season. Sorry, Brooklyn not Jersey.

I’ve been watching a lot of Bridezillas on TV and Dwight is beginning to sound a lot like those crazy bitches who need to have everything THEIR way.

There’s only one team on my list and if I don’t get traded there, I’ll play the season out and explore my free agency after that,” Howard told Yahoo! Sports.

And get this, he’s going to try to take “Legal Action” if the Magic doesn’t move him somewhere else since they “FAILED” to do what they had promised him. Who else isn’t annoyed by this big baby?

So let me get this straight. It’s a Catch-22 so try to stay with me here.

1. Dwight Howard wants to be moved and will only play for the Nets.
2. The Nets are trying to re-sign Deron Williams as well as Joe Johnson which leaves no money and no talent to offer the Magic for Howard.

I wouldn’t even trade a bag of peanuts for Dwight Howard.

And apparently the Rockets are in all the trade rumors now a days because they’re just trying to get their hands on anyone possible. But they’ve moved on from trying to get the big man since their Draft flop the other day AND they already signed Omer Asik to a 3 year contract worth $25 mil.

Why do the Lakers have to be the ones to get stuck with this dude? We don’t want his ass. I say we take another route to improve the team.

I really don’t want DH anywhere near LA unless he’s here for a pounding from my home team.

If I have to sing a song and put it on Youtube to KEEP Howard from coming to LA, I WILL DO IT! I SWEAR!

New article titles to describe DH, Dwight Howard has out-LeBroned LeBron with free-agency gaffes.” It’ll always be slang for the times but people who REALLY know what happened and KNOW how much work and effort Lebron gave to Cleveland will know that people are misguided when they use the term.

And for Pau, poor guy has just been the basis of almost every Lakers trade rumor for the past year now. If he ends up being traded I will of course be sad but maybe it’ll give him and the Lakers another opportunity at seeing a possible Championship. Up in the air is 3 possible trades for Pau (that we know about) but I’m pretty sure the one with the Hawks was already rejected. I’d LOVE to have Josh Smith on the Lakers but the Lakers still want more. And I can see both points of the situation. We’d get a great forward that’s not only an amazing defensive player but also one of the most efficient players in the NBA but we’d lose a big man which is pretty important. The Hawks, and any team that took Pau, would be left with a heavy burden of a $38 million/2 year contract which would put a pretty big dent in their hopes of scouting out other players.

Mark’s hoping for Pau to be traded to the Twolves so he can have an all white starting lineup. Hahaha. Hey, it IS Minnesota. I’d pay to see that.

We had a debate to see if he could make a Championship winning team with just white players. Maybe we should start the whole Fantasy League thing. I still haven’t decided who would be on my “non-white” team though. Apparently I only want 3 Lebrons instead of 5 according to Mark. For now, I think I’ll just stick with 1 and build on it.

Maybe when I have some more time to think about it I can do an analysis of my “DREAM TEAM”.

Bleh. That was my two cents on this whole situation. I really thought I had heard the end of this bullshit back during the regular season but I have to hear about it during the off season too? Now THAT’s bull honkey.

Gasols Double Triple!

Gasol’s made like five 3 pointers this season and 2 of them were JUST NOW, back to back during the Mavs vs Lakers Overtime!

Two 3 pointers within 40 seconds of each other!

FUCK YEAH!

FUCK YEAH! LAKERS ARE GOING TO BE CHAMPIONSHIP CONTENDERS BITCHES!

That’s right.

We got rid of Luke Walton AND Jason Kapono to get Ramon Sessions!!!!!!!!!!!!

And Christian Eyenga.

But we had to give away some of our first round picks…BOO!

BUT YAY RAMON SESSIONS! No one knows how much I love the Cavs!

And we traded Fisher to the Rockets. I love Fisher but it was time for a change.

But we got Jordan Hill from the Rockets which isn’t too bad.

WELCOME TO THE LAKERS!

Still unclear about Pau and Skittles but YAY!

LUKE WALTON AND JASON KAPONO ARE GONE!!!!! FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!

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!

6 more days…

So hopefully this won’t affect today’s game against the Wolves but rumor is that Pau has already been traded.

With who?

No one’s quite sure at this point. Don’t want another Chris Paul situation on our hands now do we?

There’s a lot of talk about the Wolves wanting Pau and the same with the Rockets but until they release something official it’s still anyone’s game. I mean we all thought Wallace was on the Lakers too but that didn’t pan out too well.

6 more days until the deadline.

Are the Lakers going to get Derrick Williams? Josh Smith? Someone from the Rockets? Who knows.

What I DO know is we can’t trade for nothing again. That’s for sure.

I’m going to miss you Pau! Thank God we got you instead of Marc.

Updates

Love and Barea are out, Pekovic is in. 

We got this!

And NO Pau will NOT be wearing a Wolves jersey tonight.

Love = Back Spasms

Barea = Sprained Ankle

Do You Know what time it is? TRADE RUMOR TIME! OH YEAH!

I guess we’ll talk about the MAN OF THE HOUR first.

No, it’s not you Dwight Howard.

I’m talking about Skittles.

It’d be cool to have Michael Beasley on the Lakers, but it’s not going to happen. We’d either have to give up our TPE or some players or picks and if we don’t…then we’re super close to having a huge luxury tax slammed in LA’s face. And besides, the Lakers already rejected that offer. We didn’t want to get rid of BOTH of our first round picks. Hope it wasn’t a mistake! Lolz. If it’s what I’m thinking the Lakers turned down the player-for-pick swap to save money for a player they actually DO need. I’m still keeping my fingers crossed for Rondo or Sessions.

He’s probably either going to the Nets, Rockets or the Celtics. And God knows all three teams need as much help as they can get!

Plus the Wolves roster is getting a bit crowded with Williams and Webster. And seriously it looks like they are ALL too happy to get rid of him.

Do you remember when Derrick Rose got his own custom Skittles Machine?

I don’t get how people can eat so many of those…There should just be an NBA Skittles League. It’d be Michael Beasley, Derrick Rose and Kevin Durant. I’m sorry Lamar, they don’t make Chocolate Skittles.

Speaking of Lamar, after the Lakers traded him for basically nothing, this has been his worst playing season. Sad but true.

The Mavs might end up moving him to Phoenix to get Steve Nash instead…or Odom might not play at all. He should’ve just played out his days as a Laker. I don’t understand. Meh.

And what’s up with Dwight Howard?

The Magic want to keep him but does DH want to keep the Magic? Wait…that sounded corny.

DH wants to go to the Nets or to the Mavs but they have nothing to offer the Magic. And I guess they’re banking on him NOT becoming a free agent. And the Lakers are not going to give up Andrew Bynum. Who knows what’s going to happen? One thing is for sure, the Magic can’t give up everything for nothing again like they did with Shaq. THANK YOU ORLANDO. HAHAHAHA. OR MAYBE….they SHOULD do that again. Muhahaha. I still don’t think Kobe would play nice with him though and I would miss Pau.

And there’s that whole Dwight and Deron thing going on. Williams is going to leave if Dwight doesn’t come so should the Nets just trade him before he decides to leave anyways? Or do they just keep pushing to get DH? The Nets would have to accommodate Howard as a free agent which means less money. But in times like that you have to think of what’s REALLY important. Playing well on a team that you like and also one that can support you? Or just doing it for the money. I guess we’ll just have to wait…less than 2 weeks and we’ll find out.

ALMOST THERE PEOPLE! Hahaha.

No Howard. No Rondo. No Williams. Just Wallace.

Rasheed Wallace? Really? When and how did that happen?

Do the Lakers even need a Forward? Is it to cover Pau leaving? But when asked that question they just said it was to “strengthen the bench”. Man I haven’t seen Wallace play since that last game of the finals in 2010. I wish we could just all take a play from his handbook and retire for 2 years and then jump back in like it never happened.

Is he even in shape to play? (I mean he is getting a little old for the NBA at 37). I’d still take Allen Iverson instead. OR CAN I HAVE BOTH? Hahaha.

And I guess the Lakers haven’t given up on Dwight Howard just yet. They offered to trade Bynum for Howard. Uhh…like the Magic would want JUST Bynum. It’d have to be Pau + Bynum + some other incentives like the TPE and picks. Well after this weekend it’ll be a rush to sign before the deadline. I still think Rondo is our best bet. Maybe Rondo + Wallace will make a good pair for the Lakers. I don’t think we need Jermaine O’ Neal though.

GO WEST! I knew we could do it this year! And I guess we’ll just all have to welcome Wallace to LA.
