ndPac is starting to rub some people the wrong way
Default What if the Lakers actully got Kidd AND O'neal. . .

Say with the slight chance that it would have actully happened, they do the Bynum for Kidd deal. . . Then they also work out something like getting jermaine O'neal and some bench scrub (s) for Odom/Kwame/ Mihm in (sign and trade)/ maybe swap future draft picks too, or expiring contracts to make it work. .

Lakers could have had a starting line up of :

pg- Jason Kidd
sg - Kobe Bryant
sf - Luke Walton
pf - Cook/ Turiouf
c/pf - Jeramine Oneal

bench would have been pretty weak like Celtics ended up with, but I think it would have been worth it. . . Pretty crazy line up that would have been. Prob wouldnt add up contract wise but say that actully happened. . .would have been nuts. Kobe might have got back to the finals where he belongs! . . .allthough doubt even that could get by the spurs. .

what does everybody think?

Because Kidd for Bynum straight-up would REALLY happen.

well seeing how both the nets and pacers hinge the trade on Bynum i doubt they could have both... maybe after they arm wrestle or something...

kidd would be nice to have on the lakers it's too bad the deal got switched up in the last hours

and i myself don't feel jermaine is a replcement for odom and bynum i think the two of them have more on court value than jermaine does by himself at this point in his career...

Sad thing is, Kidd could've been gotten, but the Lakers didn't want to give up their future in Bynum. That lineup is very similar to the current Celtics, i don't think they would get past the Spurs though.

I don't know why the Lakers would want Kidd.

He doesn't fit in to their system, Kidd wouldn't look good on the lakers at all.

. . . .

Im not even a Lakers fan by the way Im a Suns fan. . I do realize Kobe is the best player in the nba however. .

I think Jermanie is under rated, everyones been saying he sucks and is old and washed up, but i dont think hes any worse into his career than pierce or allen or anything. . he did lead the league in blocks last year with like 2.5 per game. . on top of 20 and 10 ish thats pretty good, and he plays D. . . if he could actully stay healthy he would be a real good addition, too bad Odom and Oneal each have about a 2% chance of playing entire seasons.
