LOL. That guy in your sig is a Kings fan from RealGM IIRC...HILARIOUS! :man10:


he was already mad after the Nash trade, think he completly stop posting on the general board after the howard trade along with some homer Celtic fan who was adamant that we would have to include Pau as well to get Howard :man10:


That board is a great place for lulz and d00m.

The text on the right of Kobe kind of ruins it though.

Drew has a cool afro, and if I may say so, looks good in a Philly uniform. Again, I wish him all the best, and I hope he can really carry this team far. He has great young teammates for sure.

I think his fro looks like old school Dr. J's; that's why he looks so good in a Sixer outfit. :man1:

I know he'll never be in the Mount Rushmore of Laker Centers, but Bynum's the only one we drafted and developed and he was an integral part of 2 rings. I appreciated his time in LA. Just wish he had remained healthier.

shame is that his first injury wasn't his fault ... then it all kinda snowballed ... it's Grant Hill like ... shame

The fans want you here long-term and you basically said right away you want to make this your home: Andrew Bynum: “Exactly. I’m looking forward to being here. I don’t like to jump around, jump ship, a lot. I was with the Lakers for seven years. I want to be here for that or even longer.”

no he doesn't. You cannot get a no-trade clause going to a new team.

He can after his 3 year extension ends. All indications are that he's going to sign that extension. If he wants to be there 7 years or even longer, the best way to ensure that is to have a no-trade clause.

At first I was quite skeptical about the Drew-Dwight swap, but now I think that it's a win-win situation. We replaced a good center with a better center and now Drew is on a team where he won't be living in someone's (Kobe's) shadow, a team that he can make his own.

I used to love Bynum for the first six years he was here. I saw him grow as a player and as a person. I always backed him and labelled him the second best center in the league when some were saying Bogut was, or Horford, etc. But this past season and his attitude problem really made me dislike the guy. I wanted him off this team badly. I wouldn't go as far as to say he's a cancer, but he definitely brought some negative energy to the team on and off the court. I didn't really feel like winning was his priority and he didn't really understand the team concept. I couldn't be happier that we traded him for one of my favorite players in the league, Dwight Howard. Not only is Dwight much better (yes, much better), but he's a consistent threat who will show up every game with full effort. His defense will take us to another level.

as far as I know that's not possible.

You have to be in the league at least 8 years and with the same team at least 4 years to get a no trade clause from that team. In other words, he has to spend 4 seasons in Philly to be eligible. That right doesn't come with your bird tights.

Right...which means next season + 3 year extension means he would have spent 4 years in Philly once the extension is over.

I'm still astonished that the Magic didn't want Drew. That was the best trade available by a mile. Swapping out the second best center (arguably the best) for the general consensus best center wouldn't have been much of a drop off at all. They should have kept Ryan Anderson as the stretch 4, too. The slash and burn re-tooling would drive me insane if I were one of their fans.

To be honest, I doubt Bynum would have stayed.

Philly has a much better supporting cast around Drew than Orlando does, which is part of the reason they gambled on taking him without even speaking to his agent.

What astonishes me more is why Houston was left out in the cold. IMO what the Lakers, Denver, and Philly gave Orlando pales in comparison to what Houston could have offered. Even if Houston was scared to get Dwight, why not settle for Drew?
