LOL seriously rockets just screwed themselves. They needed right now someone that can play with the ball. Their primary scorers are brooks and shane.

Yahoo Sports writers are not to thrilled about the trade and neither am I. I've heard they might be losing Odom too. I don't think Shaq will help the Cavs that much, which is the reason all of the trades are going on in the first place.

Since Lamar Odom and Ron Artest are longtime friends back to their younger days does this deal seal Lamar Odom re singing with the lakers?

Well Kobe already mentioned Lamar wasnt going anywhere.

since lakers even saved more money we thought they would, I would assume they'll Keep Odom and give him an extra buck than they previously planned. Just a thought.

Why would Ariza take the MLE with Houston rather than Cleveland? Houston doesn't really have a chance with Yao out. It seems like he would want a chance to win another ring. I am sure there would have been plenty of times he and Lebron would have been in the game at the same time so he would have had plenty of PT.

hopefully this will lock up Odom as well...

wow talk about one of the best front offices in the league if not the best front office. Look at how we get Gasol.. and now we sign Artest for 6 mil a year for 3 years??? He made 17mil last year.

WHAT ABOUT ODOM THOUGH?? SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME HE IS COMING BACK

He heard somebody walk in and assumed it was one of his teammates, or maybe a staff member. Instead, he looked up, and it was Ron Artest (to this day, Kobe has no idea how Artest got into the locker room).

Artest said that his friendship with Kobe was a deciding factor in joining the Lakers.

I think he said his friendship with Odom was a deciding factor...but we all know he respects Phil and Kobe as well. Sad to see Ariza go, loved everything he did for us this past season.

So this pretty much confirms that Odom won't be leaving...that's awesome.

That is going to be my biggest worry about him in the upcoming season...I love his Swagger and his toughness...He has MAD game, but he takes ill-advised shots and can be a really selfish player at times. Overall I am extremely happy that we were able to get him at a bargain price. He definelty makes our team better than we were last year!!!

and I was thinking
Kobe, Odom, and Artest with Phil seems very similar to
Jordan, Pippen, and Rodman with Phil

3 peat anyone???

Wow this is crazy....

Ron knew he was coming, he just had to figure out how...and it looks like he found a way.

Im watching a lot of Ron on youtube right now.

This craziness people talk about seems to be something approved by his teammates. Artest is an intimidator and he won't stop at anything to try to get in your head.

Look at this clip when he was on the kings against the Jazz.

The whole time he was intimidating Utah players, he gets ejected eventually for getting a second technical but you see the hard effort he put the whole game draws a slap in the butt from Bibby, and high 5's from the teammates.

Enjoy!
