Harrington is still young I would do it because there is a slim chance bynum becomes what us laker fans want him to but, by adding harrington we become instant championship contenders.

Odom
Bryant
Vlad
Harrington
Brown

If kwame improves like he is expected the lakers surpass the pistons for the best starting line-up in the league top to bottom and kobe is the oldest player in the starting line-up do it mitch.

I think the NBA needs to address the cap situation because they have a cap and almost every single team, with the exception of a few, are over the cap, but this is another discussion for another day.

I don't see how you play Odom at the 1.... especially when it comes to defensive assignments... remember, im all about D, and true point guards would run circles around Odom, getting him into constant foul trouble... and the penetration would force our bigs to adjust and get them into foul trouble too.

Kobe would guard the point, while Odom guards the SG, but it would still create too many match-up problems for us on defensive, and it might not pay off on the offensive side of the ball.


This would be a REALLY bad deal if it went down, we could get much more for Bynum if we traded him for Artest, so why would we trade him for a player like Harrington. We could still probably make a deal thats sends Bynum to another team like Chicago or Indiana.

Also, the Hawks just signed Lorenzen Wright to a contract, so that would fill their need at the center position. They have Zaza, Sheldon/John Edwards, and now Wright at center, so I don't think they would really want Bynum unless they give one of them back to us.

There is no way Kobe guards the PG... you would wear him out. His production would go down... it just makes not sense.

I definately do not want this deal to happen. Bynum is going to be great and will be a big part of the Lakers future so trading him now is foolish. Plus this deal makes no sense for us at the moment. It would mess up the roster.

If we sign Harrington as a free agent I have no problem with that but if this is what we have to do to get him, it is not worth it.

This is not a bad deal. This is a pretty good deal considering that after next season, there are going to be alot of draft picks who are Power Forwards and Centers.


PG - Lamar Odom

SG - Kobe Bryant

SF - Al Harrington

PF - Vladimir Radmanovic

CT - Kwame Brown.


The above starting lineup, each and every person is known to be either a scorer or a rebounder. This deal is not bad considering how many Power Forwards and Centers are around in the 2007 National Basketball Association Draft. Yes, Andrew Bynum was scheduled as a three to four year project. However, what happens after those years??? Will he be good or bad??? You never know. He was a high school player.

The players in the 2007 National Basketball Association will far be more experienced than Andrew Bynum as far as playing in a system. Andrew Bynum did provide some entertainment for the Los Angeles Lakers, but it might better for his athletic growth to be traded to the Atlanta Hawks where they're patient with their young players. They're used to their young players so there won't be any high expectations for Andrew Bynum as there are high expectations for him with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Andrew Bynum will have time to grow as a player with the Atlanta Hawks, they will have patience with him. What if three or four years down the line when it's time for Andrew Bynum to suit up, and he's not ready??? What happens then??? People are going to look back and say, "the Los Angeles Lakers should've traded Smush Parker, Andrew Bynum, and the number one draft pick to the Atlanta Hawks for Al Harrington."

Why's everybody so down on Chris Mihm??? Shaquille O'Neal's place was very hard to fill and no one ever said Chris Mihm was an All-Star, so why expect All-Star numbers from Chris Mihm??? Chris Mihm always did the job, and that's what mattered. He can still contribute from this team off the bench as a backup Center.

This is a pretty nice steal for the Los Angeles Lakers. They should sign the papers and get it over with if the deal is still on the table.

Furthermore, it seems that alot of teams have vastly improved their squads including:

Portland Trailblazers who added Jamaal Magloire.

Los Angeles Clippers have improved with Aaron Williams and Tim Thomas.

Amare Stoudemire's going to be back for the Phoenix Suns with Steve Nash, Shawn Marion, Boris Diaw, and a re-signed Leandro Barbaso over there.

The Sacramento Kings will have a full season with Mike Bibby, Kevin Martin, Ron Artest, Shareef Abdur-Rahim, and Brad Miller.

Golden State Warriors, if healthy, can make some noise with Dale Davis, Jason Richardson, and Troy Murphy. They also have recently acquired Devin Brown, Mickael Pietrus, Ike Diogu, and recently drafted Patrick O'Bryant, not to mention Monta Ellis, Chris Taft, and others.

Denver Nuggets have improved as has many other teams.

The point I'm trying to make is that alot of teams have made efforts to improve their teams, so why not the Los Angeles Lakers??? If you think the addition of Vladimir Radmanovic will solely ensure the Los Angeles Lakers a Playoff berth, then put down the pipe, go to Taco Bell to get some munchies, then go to sleep, because that won't happen.

Believe it or not, Devean George was a contributer to the Los Angeles Lakers and his contribution to the team will be sorely missed. The addition of Al Harrington will fill that void.

This is a good trade for the Los Angeles Lakers.

That's a very good point hotsizzle, however "could be" is the operative word. If the opportunity presents itself, then one should go for it. The National Basketball Association Draft in 2007 is projected to be filled with Power Forwards and Centers who have extra years of experience than Andrew Bynum, I think it's worth rolling the dice on this trade.

Dude, this is NOT a good trade for the Lakers unless a legit starting PG is included as part of the package. You can't have Kobe or Lamar at the 1 from a defensive perspective. See post #23 above.

Geez, come on now!
