No way the Lakers get rid of Lamar. Jax loves the kid and plus he is going to be playing with some fire this year. After losing his kid, he's going to be working on pure emotion and focus.

Ely would be good, but why? Give our current front court a chance to play. It's our back court that needs help.

Look at our front court with Odom, Radman, Turiaf, Bynum, Kwame, Mihm, Walton and Cook. That has potential to be a great rotation. Give Turiaf some minutes this season to prove himself. You have to love his passion for the game.

That back court needs help - although I like Smush to break out this year - they have Farmer and nothing else "proven".

We need help there -

My 2 cents!

I would give mihm and maybe cook

I wouldn't trade a first rounder because i hear this year's draft is going to be pretty huge.

The Charlotte Bobcats then sign Bonzi Wells and their lineup would look like this:


Charlotte Bobcats starting lineup:


PG - Brevin Knight

SG - Bonzi Wells

SF - Lamar Odom

PF - Emaka Okafor

CT - Primoz Brezec


Andrew Bynum, possibly, Adam Morrison, Raymond Felton, Sean May, and Ryan Hollins??? That's a heck of a youth movement for the Charlotte Bobcats.

Los Angeles Lakers starting lineup:


PG - Smush Parker

SG - Kobe Bryant

SF - Gerald Wallace

PF - Melvin Ely

CT - Kwame Brown


The Charlotte Bobcats have plenty of cap room to make it happen.


Why the Charlotte Bobcats would do this??? They have cap space and it's time for Mr. Bernie Bickerstaff to make some noise in the National Basketball Association. They would have a decent mix of veterans and youngsters to make some noise in the Eastern Conference. Andrew Bynum vs. Shaquille O'Neal??? Lamar Odom vs. Lebron James??? Eastern Conference matchups and games would finally center around the Charlotte Bobcats and they might get National Television broadcasts they need.

Why the Los Angeles Lakers would do this??? Gerald Wallace is the type of player the Los Angeles Lakers are looking for. He knows his role and won't be confused in this lineup. Melvin Ely provides so much hustle and tenacity to a position that is really vacant with the Los Angeles Lakers. Help wanted. Power Forward position for Rent. If you want that vacancy filled, Melvin Ely will fill that position, pay the rent on time, and won't be a nuisance to other tenants. Waive the application fee to move in and have fun with your new resident, Melvin Ely, become a model resident.

Sorry, Cat's aren't going to trade Wallace for ANYBODY. Ely currently has a 3Mil qualifying offer to stay in Charlotte for a year. We would be stupid to trade him for another forward since we have Harrington, Hollins, Brezec, May, Okafor, and Morrison who will probably play either a 4 or 5 at at least some point in the year. A draft pick would be good, maybe even cash considerations? Nah. Then we sign Wells and the lineup would be like this:

PG: Felton/Knight
SG: Wells/Wallace
SF: Wallace/Morrison
PF: Okafor/May/Harrington
C: Brezec/Hollins/May/Okafor

I don't think anyone in the Lakers management including mitch would even tinker with he idea of trading away Odom the only valuable commodity they got in return from a trade that nowhere compensated for the lost of Shaq and could possibly go down as the worst trade ever. Lamar should only be considered trading if it involves getting someone like a KG that could put us back on top.

Well it nice to see a charlotte fan letting us know whats up in his team's forum.

Now are you sure they dont wanna trade wallace? I dont think he's untouchable if someone showed the right trade scenario.

Yes I'm pretty sure mainly because the team loves him, the fans love him, and we currently don't have the money to lure in a superstar worth trading for him in a package deal.

I think that Wallace becomes a free agent (unrestricted) after this coming season and right now there's no way of predicting what will be that far ahead. But I think that what happens to him will be his call.

I just dont think he is untouchable.

He seems regular to me, just because Im not a charlotte fan so im not really looking into him much.

He's hardly 'regular.' Watch him play.

He is clearly not a franchise player, thats for sure. I would argue that if I was a player in the NBA, that I would much rather play for the Lakers than the Cats...

No offense, but the Cats have no history of success. If I were any of the Cats players, I would love to come to the Lakers. That allure alone, makes anything possible.

Well, the Cats ARE a relatively new team and arguably won't excite the cream-of-the-crop of NBA players, but I wouldn't bet that any of the Cats players would want to play for the Lakers. The Cats are a special group of people with character, humility and drive and seem to mesh in a special way. Those things will result in not-so-surprising success before too very long. No offense to you, but I've followed the Lakers for over thirty years (dates me, I know) and it's been a VERY long time since one could accuse their players of possessing the kinds of positive qualities that the Cats team has.

Certainly, no offense taken... I just believe that you underestimate the mistique and lure that the Laker organization has (I too, like you, have been a long time Laker fan). I think you might be surprised to see how many Cats would defect to the Lakers given the opportunity.

With regard to the success of the Cats, only time will tell how special these players and the organization are. I tend to measure it by wins and losses, playoff appearances, titles, etc. I don't mind diversity in the league, so if they eventually become a viable team, more power to them!

Welcome to our Lakers forum by the way!
