Oh, don't worry, dawg, I have thick skin. But what I said about him winning was mainly due to MJ/Pip/Rodman and Shaq/Kobe than it was with BJ and Fish.

Now, why would PJ sit Butler? In favor of who?

LO, Kobe. We need a 1 regardless if we can cover that with a trade great. Caron can spell both 2-3. think how great that would be. LO sits caron in. Kobe sits etc. LO and Kobe sit you put Jones and Caron in.


Ok, I'm still a little thrown here because who starts at PF then if Odom starts at the 3?

Well, I was just listening to ESPN radio an hour ago here in So Cal, and Mason and Ireland were acting like it was a done deal, taking caller's opinions and everything. John Ireland was even saying that it was shown on the ESPN ticker...

Then they cut some poor guy off on the phone because they had Ric Bucher on the other line, and Ric Bucher said he just had word from his "Wizards Source" that this is anything but a done deal, in fact, it's more likely than not that this won't go through. Ric said that when he asked his source if this was some sort of a back up or fall through plan, the source said that was a great way of putting it.

Moreover, Ric Bucher said that he feels that as the NBA gets closer to the July 22nd date to begin trades, Kwame Brown's stock is going to go way up and Caron Butler will not be enough to bring in Brown.

Personally, I don't have a problem with shipping out Butler (because I understand that Butler is our most valuable trade piece), and while Brown isn't the player we all hoped for in return, the Lakers aren't getting any help from any other team in the NBA, so Brown may be the best we can get our hands on.

What's bugging me more than anything about those up in arms with the Caron trade, are the fans who are claiming we must keep Butler because he gets along so well with Kobe. I'm sorry, but the time for appeasing to Kobe Bryant is long over, and we need to get players on the court as soon as possible that are going to help him get a championship, not be best buddies with him.

So kwame fills that hole? I mean seriously. he will get rolled up. AT least Turiaf brings .....something. I wouldput money on it that 4years of college and SPL and an entire training camp will put turiaf on equal ground, maybe astep just below brown at the start. the difference is turiaf has heart and is fine being just another role guy

If Kwame Brown is the best young big we can get then so be it.


Thats basically how i feel. Im very skeptical on Kwame, and how he'll fit, or how he'll progress, but what do Laker fans serioulsy expect to attract dangling Caron butler out there? He's average SF in a league overplenished with such players.

Im surprised he could command any big. If i was the Wizards GM, i wouldnt accept Caron for Kwame, and if I was Mitch, I probably wouldnt deal caron for Kwame until I was sure Id revisited all other options

dohhhh!! :bang: that's true, kwame's stock will rise the closer to the deadline we get, we should get commitments on this deal asap! if it falls through, and we get nada as far as pf/c help, alot of you will be missing this trade proposal. i sure as hell will.

i don't see how we can get magloire if we can't get kwame from the wizz. then after that we're looking at trying to get ratliff or marshall. hardly the possibilities of kwame. :man5:

Thats interesting....

ric bucher ususally does a decent job regarding his feelers for the NBA and what it'll take to get a deal done. If Bucher doesnt think Caron is enough to land Kwame, than my fears may have been realized. The league has finally started to see how commonplace a slasher SF is in the NBA

All indications are that the Wizards WILL TRADE Kwame Brown for Caron Butler. A gamble? You bet it is. However, I want somethign else included.


As I have said:

Lakers Trade:
F- Caron Butler
G- Sasha Vujacic
F- Brian Cook
F- Stanislav Medvedenko

Washington Trades:
F- Kwame Brown
G/F- Jarvis Hayes


A tandem of Kobe- Lamar-Kwame -Bynum has to look pretty damn scary in a couple of years

If you want an immediate quote you can click the "quote" link on the top right corner of that person's post.

Or, you could do it the old fashioned way by using typing it out yourself.

For example, to quote me, type this: [quote=muggle313] and when you end the quote, finish with this: [/quote]

If your fears have been realized why not have him come off our bench? Will someone throw the sink at him in free agency next year. If so he should be valuable now. Like Kwame, Caron stock will rise up to the 22. Not as much but we dont need Bron to be legit

Link, please? And something other than what Peter Vescey and David Aldridge have already written, because that's still speculation and unconfirmed rumors. I want to see something that directly quotes people from both organizations before I buy into it.

And GuRu, I agree with you about Bucher...he's usually pretty accurate on his speculation, so if he thinks this is a long shot then I tend to believe him over Peter Vescey.

true, last year was kobe's year to show he can carry this team without having management bring in significant help but he failed(injured or not), so this year it's not about kobe, it's about how to improve the team, management is more knowlegeable when it comes what's best for the team.

Id be fine with Caron coming off the bench. In fact, ive been calling for it all year, but we didnt have the personnel to do it. if we can find someway to acquire a decent starting PF, and allow Caron to come off the bench them im all for it.

Youd think some people would have learned after every single "insider" rumor over the last year has been proven false.
