    Like I usually say. Who gives F if its LA? Hope Kobe declines faster than it takes for Deron to make a big difference. Its not like the Spurs, Miami, and OKC wouldnt still be on top.

    Why would NJ sign-and-trade Deron Williams? To tell their fans that they gave up multiple high lottery picks so they can get some scrap low 1st rounders and crappy contracts from the Lakers?

    Yeah, I'm sure DWill is interested. Now he just need to find a team that would want to take on Artest and Blake's horrible contracts for a few 1sts from the Lakers.

    This has already been discussed. It's just a ploy to try to get Dwight and Deron to LA if the Nets don't get a top 3 pick in the lottery to trade for Dwight.

    Maybe he's talking about shooting NJ with his decision to leave.

    "Deron leavin, rat tat tat...Brooklyn left dead bleedin."

    So, possibly it's Gasol and filler to New Jersey for Deron Williams, while Bynum stays put or sent to Orlando for Howard.

    Only a fool wouldn't have seen this coming.

    The Lakers win, yet again, possibly.

    Won't happen unless the Lakers acquire Dwight and still have one of Pau or Bynum left.

    The article touched on it, and that would be the case.

    I seriously doubt NJ would agree to Gasol and filler for DWill.

    Of course, they wouldn't though. If a 3rd team gets involve, like last season you never know.

    At first, I thought it was fantasy for Chris Paul to end up in Laker land, but some way. The Lakers, Hornets, and Rockets worked that out.

    I won't say it cannot happen, but a straight up deal for Gasol and Williams. I doubt it.

    Why would the Lakers want D-Will ?


    They have Kobe who dominates the ball , I dont see how they could co-exist as Williams needs the ball in his hands to be effective.

    If anything , the Lakers need to upgrade the SF spot and find a better shooter / defender at PG who doesnt need to dominate the ball.


    Just doesnt make sense to me .... tho they did want CP3.

    Nets will be plenty interested in a S&T if Dwight is traded to the Lakers and one of Bynum/Gasol is still there. All Deron has to do is tell them he is walking.

    The whole key is will the Lakers get Dwight?
