Default Do The Lakers Regret Trading Andrew Bynum For Dwight Howard?

Simple question:

Deep down do you think Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, Metta World War, Steve Nash (to an extent), Mitch Kupchak, Jim Buss, Jerry Buss, Magic Johnson, Mike D'Antoni (to our an extent), and Laker Nation regret moving Andrew Bynum and would rather have kept him instead of trading for Dwight Howard?

Still too early only because Bynum hasn't played at all. I imagine if Dwight doesn't get healthy this season or resign next season then they gotta regret it.

Oh and that quote at the bottom of that picture, is that real?

I think they regret not getting a star wing guy like Iggy who would have fit this style much better

I think Bynum has a worst attitude than Howard. Not a single regret. Althought we do take crap for crap...

I agree with this. LA did not want to deal with Bynum knowing the chances of him finishing down the line was slim and his attitude. Dwight has mailed it in now but before he was give you 18-13- and 3 blocks. I think Mitch and Buss are probably calculating moves to see what they can do with cap space 2 years from now. This team doesn't have pieces to advance.

People say Dwight will leave in off season but I dont buy it. His tape has looked pretty shaky and some teams will redirect from "selling the farm" to get him. the lakers will gladly take him and pay him that massive contract h wants.

Honestly Earl Clark has been better than either Howard or Bynum, so it seems like they made out.

Yep. And the chances are he'll play much better next season after a proper training camp.

That quote is 100% legit.

He said it last year or the year before when asked about a possible trade out of town.

The grass ain't always greener on the other side. I think LA got too greedy.

Probably not because Drew has been out the whole year...and his injury history is damn shoddy.

No they regret not taking Iggy, Afflalo or Vucevic in return.

If teams are willing throw the max at Roy Hibbert and Joe Johnson I'm prettty sure Dwight will get at least one time willing to pay him.
