Lakers starting lineup:
If it was 2004 that lineup would guarantee you the finals. You should definitely be the favorites out west though

Why even bother if you're not Miami or LA? The rest of the teams should just quit. The NBA is trash.

They had better offers from the Nets, Rockets, and Hawks. Smh, don't know why they took this deal. They're about to be bottom dwellers for years.
lol magic that is just awful. Mediocre players and low picks, did they get a single good piece out of this trade?
Oh well, that is still an old lineup and Howard's back is in bad shape. No guarantee they make the finals out west. Bunch of young, hungry teams in the West that can still give them trouble. Plus, I don't care what people say. Kobe is still going to take his 20-25 shots a game, so we'll see how the offense goes and if they're all able to gel. Haha, I wanna see if the two hoe ass, cornballs Kobe and Dwight are able to co-exist.

Nobody actually knows what the Hawks or Rockets were actually offering because talks didn't progress to the point of assets leaking. As for the Nets deal..... hahahahahahahahahahaha I'm not saying this deal is great, because it's not, but to say that paying Brook Lopez a max contract and Kris Humphries a contract of around 8-9 million for at least three years is a better deal is ridiculous. They weren't getting MarShon, and the picks they were getting would be around the 22-30 range just like the picks they will receive in this deal. Sorry Nets deal was complete garbage, this one is just three quarters garbage.......
Brook Lopez was getting overpaid no matter what this summer, but even if you get him on that bad contract you at least have a competent young offensive center to build around. True, we dont know what the Rockets were offering- but I cant imagine it could possibly be worse than this. At least with the rockets, you would be getting a couple of young players who could turn out pretty good (Royce White, Jeremy Lamb, Montiejunas, Chandler Parsons)- I would rather have one of those guys than all the players the Magic got back in this deal. Plus any Rockets pick would be more promising than the ones they got.
I mean seriously- the Bobcats traded Emeka Okafor (with his crappy contract no less) straight up for Tyson Chandler- who would have thought the bobcats got more in a trade for their '04 pick than the Magic? lol, I'm not complaining though, the division just got a lot easier
