Re: Lakers dodge a bullett with Turkoglu signing?
If he would have went there they would have been one of the favorites. Think about the length they would have had with him, Aldridge, and Oden on the front line.... Add Roy into the mix and that team would have gotten past the first round for sure. They would have probably been in the top 3 or 4 in the west (besides the Spurs of course). They would have been a match up nightmare for teams. Of course the Lakers would have a little more fire power, especially if they can work out something with Lamar, but when things are that close who can really predict it. I think it makes things in the West a little easier.
Like I posted in some thread before, I don't think there is going to be as much parity in the NBA next year. The top teams will be significantly better than the crappy teams. Thanks to this happening Portland will not be in that mix.
