We also have to give up two more players, Brian Cook and Slava. Phil said he dones't want to see Andrew Bynum to be traded, either.
Brian Cook, Slava, and Devean George
Ron Artest and Austin Croshere or Jonathan Bender.
This trade can fit into the salary cap system and both teams are getting something back from the trade.
Austin Croshere's 3 pointer and his free throw give us more options at the end of the game.
Jonathan Bender.... this KID.... has always been on the injury list. Sparks a little and then fades away. I think the Pacers may have ran out of patience for that kid. He 7'1, tall enough but not strong enough to fight for grounds in the paint. But having a 7'1 guy that he is able to sink a 3 is always a good thing. Plus he was once said to be the next KG.
Artest.... is ARTEST. I am sure Phil can control his temper and raise his basketball skill into another level. Look what Phil did to Dennis Rodman. Dennis loved Phil. By the way, Artest is wearing number 91 to honor his idol Dennis Rodman.
Brian Cook's 3 pointer we can get it from Croshere or Bender.
Slava........ just a gift for them to make the trade looks more fair to them plus Pacers needs some depth in the paint now since Jeff Foster is not doing a great job inside. Another big buy would make Pacers GM's Walsh heart beats a little faster.
Devean George and Ron Artest they are basically the same type of player. Both hustle the boards, run for fast breaks, pull up for 3s, and PLAY D. George had proven himself he is able to play with star players like J. O'Neal. Look what George has done when Karl, Gary, and alway fake injury O'Neal were with the Lakers. Right now he just need more minutes on the court. Damn.... I am gonna miss him a lot.
Anyways, if this trade is do-able. Here is the starting line up for the Lakers. Pretty solid, huh?
Starting Line Up:
C Chris Mihm
F Lamar Odom
F Ron Artest
G Kobe Bryant
G Smush Parker
FC Kwame Brown
FC Andrew Bynum
F Austin Crshere (Jonathan Bender)
GF Luke Walton
GF Laron Profit
G Aaron McKie
G Sasha Vujacic
G Devin Green
G Von Wafer
Damn... back to our deepest hole.... PG
By the way, if Bender does come to Lakers. Look at our 3 young post players!!
Bender 24 7'1
Kwame 23 6'11
Bynum 18 7'1
We owns the future!!

Mitch is the one that has to go away , if we want any improvements.
so , calm down , as long as he is here , no trades will be done even if Indiana asks for Slava onlt for artest
