O'Neal and Bryant are said to be still fairly close after coming into the league together.

So if the Garnett thing isn't going to happen, why not JO?
Lamar $ 13,524,000
Kawame $ 9,075,000
Brian Cook $3,500,000
1st Round Pick
Jermaine $ 19,710,000
Jeff Foster $ 5,700,000
1st Round Pick
Lakers; Gets a establish big men in JO, a decent backup for Bynum in Jeff Foster (who's contract expires after the 08 season, I had to put him in the trade to make it work) and we swap 1st round picks, moving a couple spots up.
Indiana: They trade away a disgruntaled star and return gets LO, who will probley be a all-star forward in the east (no way it's going to happen out here in the west) and he will be the number one option, which he has shown signs of (early in the season when kobe missed a couple games he was avg. 30 points). Kwame who's a decent defensive prescence and contract will expire after the 08 season (freeing up a little cap space, if they chose to not re-sign him). Cook ( just because I had to put him in to make the trade work and I don't like him).
And no I didn't want to trade for Jamaal Tinsley, he's locked untill 2011 season, though it will also work with Jamaal instead of Foster
I think this is more realistic than any Garnett scenario. Flame away

For Jermaine ONeal,
and then possibly look to free agency to fill some of our other voids?
It worked on the "ESPN Trade Machine"
If I'm not mistaken as of now, don't we only have 10 players under contract due to the expiring K's?
We could resign Luke, and the roster would look like this...
Kobe,Bynum, Evans, Farmar, Odom, Turiaf, Luke, and ONeal.
Since were going to be over cap, we would still have the MLE, and look to add a Guard and some other spots to close out the roster.
I'm new at this, but tell me if you think this would work for JO or not?
There's going to be some good potential in the FA Market this summer.
Some Guys with heart, and some skills to boot...

Indiana sends us:
Mitch should first try to give Indiana just Kwame and Rad, but Indiana is sure to demand Bynum be in the tade, so we demand Granger.
The Lakers will need to resign Mihm (taking a chance there) since both Kwame and Bynum would be traded.
