Around the league??? I don't think the whole National Basketball Association is scattering to see who is available to get Andrew Bynum. Donnie Walsh is just being a nice guy. Maybe a reporter asked him a question abut Andrew Bynum and he answered accordingly??? It's not as if he called a special press conference to announce that he wouldn't be surprised if Andrew Bynum turned into Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Somebody probably asked him a random question and that answer to the question turned into a whole article.

Donnie Walsh is probably being nice and diplomatic so that he wouldn't burn any bridges or anything.

Its not just walsh, its the whole league. I have been reading all season and now especially, that most teams think very highly of Bynum and they have all called mitch about him. I heard in an article Mitch say at least every team in the league has called once about Bynum.

Here is an example,
Quote:
Every team that calls the Lakers or every team the Lakers talk to about trade scenarios also ask about the 7-0 Bynum.

Bynum will be a good player but we cant wait for that. Clock is ticking on Kobe's prime.

that kid got not heart, passion, will, and love for the game... he could have all the physical tools but if you ain't got it in you, you will miserably fail

That's cool. But if we have to trade Bynum (I have a feeling we'll regret it...) but if we really have to do it, we should most definitely do better than getting a JO for him, especially if you consider how much more we have to drop into that trade to make it work financially. If it's true that all GMs are that high on Bynum, there has to be a better solution.

I'd still trade Odom instead of Bynum though. Odom is good but not a good fit. Never was, never will be.

There is no way you actually want Gasol over Garnett if you are not factoring in salary and age.

What did Jermaine show you in Portland? This I'd like to hear because the mofo HARDLY played his first 4yrs...both GAMES and MINUTES! Using your hand (you do have all your fingers right?) you can count how many noteworthy games he had in those 4yrs. But yeah he showed you something?

What did Tim show you? He was in friggin college for 4yrs!

Bynum had 1 highlight and thats it in 2yrs? Guess he did nothing for you in the month of Jan which is probably what saved him from being traded huh.

Will Bynum be the next dominant big man? Who knows...time will tell. Kid is still a work in progress. He is in a complex offense called the triangle. His offensive moves still need to be refined. Needs to get stronger. After 2yrs? He avg 8ppg 6rpg over 1 block. Patience is a virtue and thats what L.A is dealing with...win NOW by getting rid of Bynum for an established player or ride out his progress.

Trade scenario:

Hawks get

Andrew Bynum

Lakers get

Marvin Williams

The Lakers get a small forward who can score, while the Hawks get a big man.

Williams can be the third option the Lakers are lacking behind Kobe and Lamar.

Gasol is more low-post. Garnett has more heart, but with Kobe we are set in that department. Gasol doesn't really need the ball to score, is an OK defender, OK rebounder and a humble all-around guy. And I DO factor in salary. Age... not that much. I think Garnett is the better player, but Gasol is the better fit on the Lakers.

I like the idea of Gasol in theory but I think he is soft... He has been brutally outplayed by every pf he has ever played against in the playoffs. Id gladly welcome in Gasol but Id rather have JO and think they would mesh better. Kobe would be much better defensively with him behind him and JO is a better finisher off the kind of passes i would see Kobe making too him...

But I wouldnt knock Mitch for either one...he just has to make sure he gets another usuable player with JO or Gasol....With JO tinsley or Daniels would be fine and with Pau add in ???(idk Memphis' roster very well, how much does Stromile make, at least he can catch and finish around the basket i think??)
