LoL I remember when Smush said he could do what Kobe does at the end of a game...regardless of if that's a joke or not, that was pretty hilarious and one of those moments Smush should've kept to himself before speaking.

It boils down to why? Odom is running the bench so smoothly, we're blowing teams out, why? Maybe if he starts to play bad or complains (unlikely) or we start losing to the great teams of the league the Lakers explore the possibility of moving him for a starting 3, but not now when we're playing so well.

You can not attack an argument that is basically pointless so inturn one has to attack the "arguer" who deemed it worthy of arguing about.

If you think you know it all go on make a deal.

The point people are "trying" to make is that we do not just make trades for the sake of making them. This thread fails because of its lack of a point.

To the poster above learn how to spell that hurt my eyes.

You do remember the first line in this post I am quoting? It is this little gem you directed at therealdeal "don't use that fallacy of attacking the arguer and not the argument". Wouldn't it be better to not actually do what you are telling someone else not to do in exact same post you are telling them not to do it in?

Harrington drives it in stronger harder than odom and doesn't just shoot 3's.

Forget that Odom can play 4 positions and can bring the ball up off a rebound. Who cares about the fact that he is vastly better than Harrington in overall basketball talent. While I like Harringtons game he CAN NOT do what LO can do for this team. OH and lets not forget we actually need people to shoot 3's. If you bothered or attempted to watch the Lakers play you would know that LO doesn't shoot a lot of 3's. Infact the knock on LO has been he isn't aggressive enough on offense and much rather get his teammates involved. Psh, why let facts get in the way of a good ole "trade LO" thread.

Just look at the link . Plus he gots better basketball iq.

So because he uses boxing to keep himself in shape we should trade LO for him? :man10: Logic is sometime hard to find.

Big Al dunked on King James has odom ever done that?

OMG......... Sasha dunked on Drew and LO in practice maybe we should make him our starting center now. You do know EVERYONE gets dunked on, right? Oh nevermind I am sure that has been overlooked as well.

those highlights are just one year.

Congrats. Devean Goerge was spectacular for 1 year and got 18 million out of the Lakers for his effort. How did that work out again?

You can't tell me he is impressive.

So you went through all that and you don't want us to tell you he is impressive? I am confused. :man3:

If traded a player makes me less of a fan then what about the people that dislike Cookie, or Smush.

What? :man3:


To the OP, pretty much what he said.

Thanks for saving me the time puffy. :jam2:

IdK but for some reason I wish we could assemble the greatest team to ever grace the court..Why settle for less
I want this team to destroy Boston blowing them out everygame
and I want Kobe to win 7rings
and this team to go 73-8. Is to much to ask for

look at that warrior


1) many guys have dunked over guy X. that argument is completely invalid unless we're talking about a dunk contest or vertical leap. what we care about is how a guy fits in our system.
2) the guy plays in a run and gun system, yet only has averaged maybe 14 points a game, dishing out less than 2 assists, and not much of a rebounder either, while playing approx. 30 minutes a game
3) harrington can't play as many positions as lamar, which also means he can't defend as many positions as lamar, a key piece of the puzzle w/ a defensive mind set this year
4) sure it's possible that lamar leaves, but we're having salary issues as it is, so it's not necessarily a bad thing. think of it as a trade for salary cap space (which tons of teams do)
5) lamar is a terrific passer, more than can be said for harrington, and in this offense, passing is a key skill to make a unit click

those are my thoughts/counter-arguments.

He's an important part of what the team already has. Your name is just wrong in so many ways right now... please just drop this.

Odom deserves a line-up position that the lakers can't give him, so walking away is a better choice for him. It's true that he is good and he is still doing great work for the lakers but he is in his contract year. Who the hell knows whether Bass will open up his purse and pay millions of Lux tax for him? We'll get nothing if we just let him walk when his contract expires. an expiring contract is more valuable for a rebuilding team but not a contender like lakers. And playing in a weaker team is also good for lamar himself as he is gonna be the no.1 or 2 instead of 3 then he will get considerably plenty of game time to increase his value, then he can get a pretty satisfactory contract when his present contract expires in the summer.
Trade him to wolve for MMiller and some picks, clear up some salary space and plan for the future a little bit. MMiller has proven himself to be a good bench off player and his 3s are miles better than walton and radmanovic. he can also start at SF in place of walton.

Bynum/Pau/MM(or walton)/KB/fisher.

wait, isn't "big Al" Al Jefferson?

Al Harrington is just a scorer, Odom is more useful to the team than him.

Odom would be an awesome off the bench player..
but for what were paying him hes just not living up to the standards
yeah he'll hit a few 3's and sometimes get on a lucky hotstreak
but hes just too inconsistent - especially in the playoffs
