Probably the highest offer available in a place he wanted to play and to add on to that Buss was lowering it because he was taking so long

He was better off taking the 3yrs $30mil. Unless that was speculation and not what Buss offered. Heck atleast get 4yrs $36mil. Odumb is weird.

Ah well, Lakers lock and loaded. Should be an awesome NBA season with the heavyweights. Spurs, Lakers, Nuggets, Magic, Celtics, Cavs, who am I leaving out?

The Hawks.

We won 47 games, we kept all of our free agents except Flip (hopefully we will keep Solomon Jones - I thought he was restricted, so hopefully the Hawks will match), plus we added Crawford, Teague and hopefully Joe Smith and one more big or shooter (Wally World).

Yeah we could. Heck Atlanta and Portland could be grouped with them as well. Whomever Boozer goes too we could be adding another team. Perhaps Miami. No way Boozer is a Jazz when the season arrives.

Cant wait to see how L.A plays with Artest. And if Bynum progresses.

Ah well he's loss really, he had the chance to accept an offer along those lines and instead he decided to try and find something else...

Default Re: Lamar Odom to return to the Lakers

Boston with Rasheed is a dangerous team, I don't really see how LA are the clear cut favorites. There are some questions on that team. Can Bynum regain his former self? Can Artest keep a cool head and learn to become a role player? Can some of LA's bench players continue to contribute?

Rasheed makes Boston a very good defensive team now, I consider him to be easily one of the top low post defenders in the league. He can also play the 3; imagine Perkins, Garnett and Sheed all on the floor at the same time. Good luck getting interior points on that trio. Boston still has Pierce and Allen, man I think they got just as much fire power as LA if not more. Their bench is clearly inferior to LA's bench and their coaching staff is no where near Phil/Tex's level. Their age is a concern too; if they can remain healthy I pick them to face LA or SA in next years finals.

I stay humbled as a Laker fan, I'm glad they got the job done last year but it's a new slate this upcoming season and most of the elite teams got better.

I'm very excited that Odom returned to LA because now we have his versatility to try out numerous different lineups.

Look, I'm pretty sure everyone agrees the Lakers are the clear favorite to win the NBA title... but come on, nothing is ever guaranteed. That's why sports is so ****ing awesome.
