    Both Odom & Bynum for Bosh? This is an expensive price to pay at first glance. Jack is decent, but the Lakers lose a lot of size and depth in this deal. If the Lakers can add another solid, versatile front court player I'd feel better about it. I think you're asking for trouble playing Gasol at center all season.

    PG - Fisher
    SG - Kobe
    SF - Artest
    PF - Bosh
    C - Gasol

    Yeah me either. I still have hope for Bynum's health and as far as the situation with Odom goes, I guess I'm the only Laker fan who still likes him. Yeah he's often a pussy but he's such a valuable player to come off the bench for us and when he plays solid it's pretty much a guaranteed win for us.

    Nope.

    Whoever wrote this article chopped up Sam Smith's article where he speculated Toronto would offer Bosh and Jack to LA for Bynum and Odom.

    Pure BS article.

    I'd rather trade them for Melo because we already have a power forward who is far better than Bosh in Pau Gasol.

    You don't trade size to get smaller. That'd be a really, really stupid idea. If we're going to trade a couple of bigs, we need at least one in return. Bynum/Lamar for Anthony is just a horrid, horrid idea.

    On this note, I'd be more ok with the trade if we didn't have to give up Odom in the process. Bynum + filler for Bosh, I'm totally ok with though.

    If we give up both its retarded.

    If we give up just Bynum, we lost a strong post presence that can muscle people around, when he is dedicated to doing it.

    If we give up Odom, who goes to the bench between Bosh-Gasol-Bynum?
