    What do you think? If there was a way to acquire Ty Lawson without losing any assets (apart from J-Lin), would you do it?

    Nope. As much as I think that Ty Lawson is a great player I just like Lin too much... I want Lin to just get better and better.

    Of course but I don't see the point of this thread. There's no way Denver makes that deal. Should have just put this in the random trade suggestions

    Lawson is a humble, nice locker room guy. He's definitely more explosive from end to end. But he is short and doesn't finish well when there's a big in the paint. He doesn't have Lin's feel for the game of running a team offensively. He doesn't have vision. He's a scorer but he's very one dimensional. And defensively, Lin wins handily.

    Lin >>> Lawson

    Haven't seen Lawson enough to voice my opinion, really. But seeing as how they seem to in the same spectrum skill-wise I see no reason to even entertain the thought, especially because I like where Lin is headed now.

    I personally like Jeremy more of course, but Lawson is a hell of a player.

    They'll never give up. Even if we win a championship, the following summer will be filled with wacky trade scenarios with the futile fantasy of swapping Lin for a PG with similar production because they "fit better with the team."

    So far, the people agree Lin (who has played 85+ real-minutes NBA games) is better than the $12mil borderline all-star player.

    Lin is the future.

    Ty Lawson is better, but Lin is actually better team player/leader imo.

    If we have AB back, then why do we need Lawson? And yes, 7-11 and Family Mart rank way above the convenient store Lawson
