Bynum/ Howard

Bynum/ Howard

Postby therealdeal on Thu May 14, 2009 4:17 pm

I've discussed this elsewhere, but given the current situations I thought why not blow a thread on this.

Say right now, Howard becomes more uncomfortable with the lack of touches he gets. ( I know it's not that big a deal, but this is all extremely hypothetical) He demands a Kobe-esque trade. Do the Lakers offer Bynum + more to them for Howard?

I don't know who else we would offer. I don't think they would take LO considering the personnel they have on the team.

If Dwight makes about 13+ mill, doesn't Andrew make about the same next season with his new contract?

The deal is worth about 58 mil for 4 years. I'm not a contract expert, so I don't know the specific % that is added every year, but it averages to about 14.5 mil a year. So, yes I would assume they are going to make similar money next season.

I don't really know what they would offer besides Bynum either, maybe draft picks down the line or something.

Would I: Yes. Yes. And...hell yes.

(Would Mitch: doubtful)

I think the power + finesse game of a Dwight + Pau frontcourt would achieve greater success.

Dwight is already a defensive juggernaut. To a point I don't know if Drew will ever get to.

Dwight has the charisma and personality to take LA by storm and easily be THE face of the franchise when Kobe rides off into the sunset. He's the closest thing to the original Superman personality wise (minus the blame game) that there is in the league...and we all saw how LA ate that up during Shaq's stint with us.

The only advantage I'd give Bynum at this point is the range on his shot. However, I'd like to see what D12 could learn from studying under Cap. I believe Kareem is a much better big man specialist than Ewing is in Orlando.

Dwight brings a level of toughness. He's tougher and more physical. That would certainly help dispel the "soft" label.

And my last point: Drew has faced a couple injuries. He's not injury prone because they've been freak accidents. But you have to wonder if the basketball gods aren't too fond of him or if these injuries will affect his psyche long term or how long it will take for him to not think or worry about an injury, especially if he ever gets hurt again. Dwight has missed only 3 games since being drafted in 04. Next NBA Iron Man?

Don't get me wrong, I like Drew. I think he can have tons of success here in LaLa Land. But if I had to pick between the two, Dwight's my pick. Also I don't think anything will come of Dwight's post-game squabble. Orlando would bend over backwards to accommodate Dwight. If he asked for SVG to be fired and for Mickey Mouse to be his new head coach, they'd oblige. They're too terrified of having him walk out on them like Shaq did.

there is no way, chance, or possibility in hell (or heaven) that Orlando would give up their rock/cornerstone for, essentially, a guy in Bynum who is unproven, 'soft', and has an injury history...this isn't even a plausible trade from Orlando's pov.


the analogy would be like throwing out a "kobe for lebron" trade idea...

I would trade Bynum and Morrison for Howard and a bad contract with Orlando in a heartbeat. I think LA would have to take on a bad contract for Orlando to even remotely consider it.

for a bynum / howard swap i would take on every bad contracts orlando has on its roster...if a team has a big three ike KB, Gasol, D12 will win with me in the starting lineup.
Me + Bryant + Ariza + Gasol + Howard = Titles
sadly it would never happen
Hi all from Italy... So sorry for my english
