Here's a late entry, but this Suns DOOM is full of so much bitterness...I had to post it:
lols....perfect time to rebuild
Nash/Kobe/Who the Hell Cares/Gasol/Howard
looks like we'll have either the last or 2nd to last pick in the draft next season.
Just when I thought it was psychologically impossible to hate the Lakers any more...
Damn! That's a guaranteed ring. Defensively, Nash is their only weakness. There's NO way MIA or anyone in the East can hang with that...
I don't see how you can possibly be surprised by this.. This is how the Lakers have been conducting trades for decades now.. And Stern allows it.. If they did give up a lot I would have been shocked.. NBA never changes except for the stars the lakers get..
If the commissioner cared about the good of the game he would block this trade... but he won't.
Wow and they didn't even have to give up Gasol. I don't see how Stern could approve this and not approve the Chris Paul deal. Oh well at least MIA winning another title isn't guaranteed now.
If Stern allows this trade, the rest of the league should vote him out.
What a ****ing joke
Maybe the commissioner should give the super teams a bye and let the Washington Generals of the NBA play the regular season.
I hope the next time Dwight takes a dump his surgically repaired spine slithers out his butt and makes him, literally, the most spineless player in history.
But seriously, I really hope that Dwight's back turns him into a shell of the player he was.
The NBA is working really really hard to make me despise it.
It's just like the Gasol trade. Other teams think, "Okay, our star big man wants out, should we identify the highest bidder or just give him to the Lakers? Ah, screw it, we'll just give him to the Lakers."
Blame the other teams GM's and owners for endlessly filling the Lakers coffers. Don't know why I'm surprised, but I always am everytime these idiots trade gems for **** to the Lakers.
NBA makes me sick... Thankfully football is starting.
Why bother playing the season for the non Heat, Knicks, Lakers, Thunder group? The rest of us have to look forward to signing guys like Luis Scola and Shannon Brown... NBA sucks.
When was the last time the Lakers made a bad trade? I can't remember.
This is the poster child with what is wrong with the NBA. Why watch next season? It will be Miami and the Lakers and IMO The Suns and Orlando just handed the Lakers another title.
This is the Lakers telling the world.....FU and your no more Super teams. This is simply bad for the NBA.
The Lakers are the NBA's version of Kate Upton..... Everyone else will do anything to get a chance to get into bed with them.
Now Kobe has a chance to match Pippen's 6 rings.
When I heard this last night my level of surprise was zero. I'd blame the Lakers' Jedi mind tricks, but the simple reality is that they were patient and confident while Orlando panicked. The Lakers know that even though they can't outspend like the Yankees because of the salary cap, they are nonetheless in continual position to benefit from the discontent of stars in most other markets.
So Nash is really going to get his ring now. I guess that is a silver-lining. Other than that, can someone explain why people keep giving the Lakers good players for next-to-nothing?
Gonna be very interesting to see if the Lakers don't win it all next year, will their 3 and a half men get the same treatment Miami got after their 1st season of LeBron, Bosh and Wade.
No, because I can guarantee they aren't going to come out before the season and dance around like clowns and predict "No 4, not 5, not 6, not 7..." like the boneheads in Miami did. So far "Miami's Big 3" has won one strike-shortened title. Um...big whoop.
Or Dwight's back never really recovers and this submarines the final years of Kobe's career.
this would prove the existence of God.
Which will immediately be disproved by the Lakers acquisition of Chris Paul for two 2059 first round draft picks.
