You cant trade him to the Lakers... there has to be some perspective here. Its like your girlfriend of 5 years leaving you for the guy who she met while he was kicking your teeth in.

o boy, this is gonna be a problem
I give up. The new Magic GM is either
a. Otis Smith with plastic surgery
b. Lakers spy planted by Mitch Kupchak
c. just a dumb piece of sh**
Why do the Lakers have to be relevant all the time???
Imagine a league where LA is either first-round fodder or just plain terrible. Seems like that'll never happen...
The fact that they don't have to give up Gasol is totally ridiculous. Completely unfair.
All we can hope for now is having Kobe jacking up 30 shots a game.
How can they not give up Pau? How? The Lakers get these absurd trades every single time, every single year, it's **** nonsense.
Can we just give up all of our stars to LA for garbage also?
HEY I WANT STEVE BLAKE! HERE IS RONDO!
All the Lakers give up is Bynum? This is ridiculous.
Can we trade for gasol?
Well, the Lakers are locked into the finals barring an injury. In fact, if they stay healthy they have title wrapped up.
Does anybody else this is a major load of BS??? Once again the Lakers pull off a trade where they're the MASSIVE winners.
C'mon. They're not even losing Gasol?
The Heat are done. The Celtics are done. The League is done. SMH!
SF: World Peace
It sure would be great if people actually wanted to play in Boston.
Huge mistake for the Lakers if they trade Gasol... please let that be the case
this is why we have jason collins. danny ainge is a genius.
HOW DOES THIS ALWAYS HAPPEN?!
What a load of BS. Magic are getting very little value in return. Lakers as usual get the best end of the deal. Never fails.
Bunch of dummies run organizations in this league.
Just an absurdly bad trade for Orlando. I can't believe the Lakers can get that done without giving up Gasol. Unreal. If true, I'm penciling in the Lakers for the Finals now.
Talk about a franchise constantly just handed players.
I HATE this league. Two plus months until training camp and I am already massively depressed. On paper, the Lakers are good for at least 65+ wins. Same for the Heat. The NBA -- where "same as it ever was" happens. It will take Stern months to get the smile off his face after this deal.
can David Stern step in and block the trade again
If i didn't know any better id say the lakers are in the east the way you guys are acting.
wow i dont know if we will be able to beat the Lakers.....
... this should motivate Ainge to get another all-star...
we should trade Fab Melo and Keyon Dooling for Kevin Love..... oh yea i forgot..... we're not the Lakers. we cant give up nothing and get an all-star.
Lakers getting away with robbery. Hopefully Stern finds some way to meddle in this deal. Basketball reasons.
WHY DO THEY GET EVERYTHING FOR NOTHING?
sorry Kareem you don't get a statue its for Mitch.
hennigan is a boy trying to play a man's game
he thought he was the ish and now he's getting his [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.] handed back to him on a platter.
This whole deal is a Stone Cold Steve Austin middle finger to the Nets and Houston. lol.
Pau Gasol = Happiest man in the world right now.
Can we move Orlando to Seattle now?
What a f*****g joke....seriously, don't get Pau or Bynum, don't get any high picks, don't get rid Hedo, and get a bunch of junk.
Seriously, just move the team to Seattle.
We might as well all start bowing down and admitting that LAL will be the new basketball gods.
God the magic would have the most expensive d-league team in the league. Lol and no good picks
Beyond disgusted right now. This is the kind of trade that causes a life long fan to instantly hate a team.
Now Orlando donates Dwight, just like they donated Shaq years ago.
It really is **** amazing how teams continue to bend over backwards and let the Lakers do whatever they want to them.
Sorry to hit Magic fans below the belt but DAMN you two best players in team history in their primes in Shaq and Dwight both left for the Lakers.That's got to be a tough pill to take.
The Magic just got gang banged by the other teams, we had the best player and we end up with this crap. We got screwed without lubrication.
The Mavs have to go up against this opening night......
so they went thru ....alllllllllllllllllll of this nonsense for a whole season ...just to eventually dump howard ...(like everyone knew they had to) .......for AA and Al Harrington? ppppffffffffttttttt lmao ...damn ..... now thats turrible ... just turrible
This is f**ked up on so many different levels.
Orlando just got MURDERED by the Lakers and 76ers.
First the Grizzlies want Deng&Gordon etc from the Bulls and decline every good offerjust to ship Gasol then months later over night to the Lakers without putting him back on the trade market.
And now the Magic trade Dwight hlaf a year before the deadline in a crappy dealwith Dwight ending up 1:1 for Bynum in LA...wtf is wrong

Ah yes, bulls fans, how quickly they remember that their 10 year dynasty was surrounded by more than 30 yrs of laughing stock status.
Can we all give our All NBA players to LA for garbage too?
I WANT STEVE BLAKE. WE'LL GIVE U RONDO AND PICKS
Magic fans...I know its not completely the same, but I'm a Raptors fan. I sat by as we lost a franchise player (albeit not as good as Dwight, but still awesome nonetheless, when motivated) for what amounted to absolutely nothing. Let me just say....it doesn't get easier with time.
Move Magics to Vancouver now...
Somebody call the cops. Lakers getting away with robbery...!
I seriously don't understand this deal from the Magics' point of view. And how does LA only have to give up
Bynum and then bunch of late 1st picks? SMH Orlando
33 year old pau
34 year old kobe
39 year old nash
back up pg
I still got the Thunder myself (plus Pau will be a goner at some point)
+1!!! WTF is this? Do the lakers just get a free reload BS trade every few years? This is worse than Gasol trade.

I will miss Drew too....we all watched him grow on this team.
This trade puts them no higher than the 4th seed.
If Pau is not included then they need to ban Denver, Orlando, and Philly from the league.
OMG, Lakers keep Gasol and get Howard? Damn...
Lakers have a 2 year window with this team, sadly it's the same 2 year window that we have with Dirk.
So what's the plan now? Bynum?
Im flipping out right now...Game over man...Game over
Bye bye 2012/2013 NBA season. Just hand it to the Lakers
Kobe, Nash, Gasol, Howard, MWP. At least Heat won't win another one.
Just run everyone but LA/NY/Miami out of the league. That's all that matter anyways.
dwight, pau, mwp, kobe, nash
shut it down, let's go home.
will be a fun way to start the season in la. = (
What the hell was the point of the lockout ohlord Strong get stronger and weak wallow in suck for years on end.
This needs to be a deal shut down like the Paul deal was last year...how the league, and the rest of the teams continue to let the Lakers just run rough shot over everyone else in trades is ridiculous.
Lakers almost have 4/5th of starting Western Conference All Star Team. Unreal
Apparently. It's like every team in the league wants to bend over for them.
Let's hope Dwight's back isn't ready for the season opener.
Look at the bright-side. they have a 2 year Window.
Lol, Clippers. No matter how good they get the Lakers always will 1 up them.
Seriously, baring injury, just what is the point of this season?
So what exactly are the Lakers weaknesses now?
Perimeter D.. maybe?
I can't think of anything..
I can't believe they didn't have to give up Gasol. Just doesn't seem fair. But I can't say I'm surprised. The Lakers pretty much always get what they want
pipe dreams are really all we have left, so why not?
him and kobe fight and kobe runs him out of town like he did shaq.
I'm still looking back at this trade and it's still so ****ing stupid, like something ihateheat or cowlunteer would come up with.
It's like one of those stupid "Let's trade Ian Mahimi and Roddy for Dwight Howard" trade threads.
I mean...how does this continue to happen, and almost ALWAYS in favor of the Lakers?!?
I want to vomit now.
Looks like lebron will probably retire with 1 ring.
good for him, too bad it was a lockout title.
and the Lakers only lose Bynum??? wtf!
I feel good for the Lakers, their fanbase has suffered so much, they haven't won a championship in over 2 years now, they were due for a break
So in recent years, they got Pao for Kwame and now Dwight for Bynum. Bynum is legit but not THAT legit! BS, I hate LA
The only silver lining in this is that Miami will not repeat.
puke puke puke
vomit vomit vomit
blech. vomit. puke.
