Second, How is this a missed opportunity??? For what??? A lateral move????? How does that make our team better? If we can land Artest, it doesn't do us any good unless we keep Odom.

Artest could play the role of Rodman in my situation. Odom would be the missing piece though as Pippen.
Maybe a trade not involving Odom for Artest could happen?
Kwame, Cook, Crittenton
Artest, Kenny Thomas?
Odom (SF or PF) /Artest/Walton
Thomas/Radman/Turiaf (C or PF)

and he's actually playing consistant defense
not the best defensive player...nor is he better defensively than artest
but overall most ppl will take odom over artest
plus artest's attitude off the court just drives ppl crazy
our post defense will go much weaker if odom goes
and ANYONE would know that the best defensive teams NEEDS a big guy that can play defense
odom is not one of the best...but he DID shut down a few players like marion at times
so no way r we giving up odom for artest
