You were right...they should have keep Bynum.
lol...we should've traded for Nikola Vucevic instead of Howard.
Yeah...he's tearing it up. He had something like 13 rebounds in the first half against the Celts the other day. I know the Celts are a crappy rebounding team...but still.
So the Lakers do not have Pau Gasol, Dwight Howard, and Jordan Hill. This makes it more difficult.
Saw this on ESPN.
Mitch Kupchak should contact Billy King about a Howard-for-Lopez trade. Now!

Pfffft. Yeah cause the Knicks would be one of the 1st teams in line to try and nab DH.
Im thinking this could be the beginning of the end for Pau.
- The big fellas have a shorter shelf life it seems
- He hasn't shown much killer instinct
- When he has he seems incapable of performing at a high level physically.
Pau killed it in the Olympics and that was while playing the low post alongside another big man (his brother). I agree that he is inconsistent and does not often play aggressively, but I do think a lot of that is D'Antoni and Brown's insistence on playing him well outside of the post. He still has better post moves than just about anyone in the league but if you want him to sit at the top of the key and then put the ball on the floor and drive, you're not going to get great results.
actually, statistically the taller you are the longer you last in the league...on average.

Two thoughts on that:
1) I wonder if its because true big men are rather scarce and thus less easily replaced, so teams are more likely to keep them on even when their skills/physical ability/durability are in obvious decline. If you're a solid but unexceptional guard or small forward who has obviously peaked, there are about 5 million adequate replacements out there every year. Not so for a true center.
2) True big men are probably more likely to have nagging, chronic-type injuries than the catastrophic ones that can really derail a career in a hurry, because they don't usually play above the rim and and making hard cuts. You see a lot of sprains, tendinitis, etc. but you don't really see the torn ACLs and such like you do with guards, for example. A big man can still play and add value to a team even if tendinitis in his knees impairs his explosiveness, but a guard with bum knees who can't cut or drive is probably not very valuable.
Big men dont require very much athleticism that's why. See Kurt Thomas

So with this premise, does that make Spud Webb the most athletic NBA baller ever?
Him and Allen iverson are definitely up there
