The trade scenario that all you guys laughed at actually happened. Feels good.

The league has no choice but to approve it, they have no reason to veto this time.

Some thoughts after listening to this all morning.
1) Two problems with Brooklyn deal. They didn't want Lopez on his salary and they didn't (where is Wang4Three who talked about the leaks) want to send him to Brooklyn because they were embarrassed at the perception that Brooklyn and Howard had them over a barrel. Bucher said all the information out there about the Brooklyn trade and the daily updates that Dwight wanted out embarrassed the Magic and they wanted him gone as far away from themselves and Brooklyn as possible. The leaking hurt that trade.
2) Larry Coon said Houston had an offer on the table that he knows about. The Houston offer didn't take back enough salary from some reports. (Hmm...why couldn't Houston absorb as much salary? Which two players took up $16M in cap space?) Houston also didn't appear willing to negotiate.
3) It looks like Orlando mgmt got tired of waiting and forced their GM's hand once this got close.
4) Broussard and all the ESPN guys are so full of shit it's not funny.

How come everyone on the board either thinks the Lakers are a lock for a title or will totally suck? Is everyone a ridiculous homer for their team? Neither is true.

And this thought Howard leaves for a lesser team, seriously?

There isn't any in between it seems. This team will be a big time contender. Will be a battle with thunder and miami too. We could do with adding a few more shooters which would be needed vs the Heat

Orlando are idiots. Houston's deal was better then what they ended up with.

You're a title contender. Arguably a favorite. But not an overwhelming favorite. Miami and OKC are still very good.

We don't know Houston's deal. You are probably right but we are comparing to a deal whose pieces we do not know.

Indeed, Miami are the favourites still proven otherwise. Both Miami and thunder will both have the advantage speed wise which could be a big factor.
