    Wow. I hope at least Odom and Bynum are they key pieces, and not Kwame. Which means it's probably Kwame and Bynum.

    He nailed the Ron for Peja deal. There was something else recent that he was dead on about too. The fact that he was so matter of fact (according to UB) tells me this is more likely true than not, but of course nothing is official.

    I don't think Bynum is overrated, and a pick in this draft sure would be nice.

    But man we are going to suck really bad next year. Maybe that's the point, to win the lottery or something? Urgh.
    Yes, we will stink. The restoration (as Donnie described it) is off and a true rebuild is on its way. We can only hope that we have good decision makers in the front office. I guess that's the scary part.

    The good news is, we already have several good young players to watch, will probably get a couple more and some solid picks for a couple years, and see this group improve. Think early 90's. The team needs to play the right way on and off the court and win back the fan base. I am one of many fans who will be happy for this change and support this team more than ever.

    I'll be right there with you--if we get Bynum. I'll mourn JO for a while, but eventually I'll get all hyped about watching that young dude develop.

    If we don't get Bynum.... I'll be mourning JO for a good long while. And Bird will develop what we in the 'Biz call a Conditioned Food Aversion to coffee.

    So how do you feel about a young core of Williams, Diogu, Granger, and Bynum? We need a lot more to go with it, but that's not bad.

    No Bynum and it's a dud in my opinion.

    As most of you know I think Vescey is the best and if he says something is going to happen, I believe him 100%.

    Of course circumstances can change and trades can always fall through.

    But let me be clear about Vescey said. He did not say that the Lakers intend to go after JO, nor did he say that the Pacers intend to trade JO. Vescey isn't putting two and two together and coming up with a trade scenerio (Sam Smith), Vescey is reporting that JO will be playing in a Lakers uniform next season. The impression I got is that a trade is all but agreed to between the Pacers and Lakers (Vescey did not say that - I am interpreting what he did say) For Phil Jackson to tell Kobe that JO will be acquired - that means things are pretty much agreed to.

    Vescey was asked again about 15 minutes ago by Andre Aldridge and Peter matter-of-factly said Lakers will be acquiring JO.

    The only thing I don't know is why the Lakers will get

    If the Lakers organization lie to Kobe, he would join a Western Conf. team and score 101 points wearing #13 jersey.

    I've seen Bynum play a number of times and at times I think to myself he could become the second coming of Shaq. Also keep in mind when Donnie Walsh was asked if the Pacers intend to build the team around Granger - Walsh said he only builds a team around centers

    the real question is when was this trade agreed on? Recently? then why arent the buss's and co. contacting kobe at the start of all this? Vescey is an idiot. He just wants to call it if it happens...if not no one even remembers or cares.

    I really like it.

    Diogu is a question mark but I like what we have there.

    If we can get Farmar and/or 19th pick that would be great. Farmar, I don't know about, I have become a big believer in having a great point guard but if we dump Tinsley on the Lakers than I want Farmar. He has some talent.

    One thing I guess I do like about Bynum as opposed to getting say Gerald Green and the 5th pick is that Bynum is a beast. There are very few centers with his size and talent. I think he has done solid for a 19 year old big man playing in the Triangle Offense, that is no easy task for a 19 year old. Having Bynum in the paint will be great. I think Bynum could be a better defender than Jermaine just because Bynum is bigger than Jermaine, he can be a lot more physical IMO.

    How many posts of flipping out do we need?

    Moving on, can this trade actually happen before draft night?

    *realizes he will probably have to wonder about this trade for at least a month*

    Let's lighten up a bit. This is still not FACT. Having said that, it's not hard to believe since both teams need to shake things up AND this idea has bounced around for awhile with neither side denying anything.

    My concern is not the loss of JO - he's unable to make the Pacers a contender with the talent we have now, and he's the most valuable commodity to use in trying to strengthen the team. No, my concern is WHAT DO WE GET FOR HIM?

    The track record of the current Pacer deal-maker (Mr. Bird) is not too good in this respect. I can't really think of a 'deal' or a draft choice that's been made on his watch -- even with the help of Walsh -- that's been successful other than drafting Granger midway thru the 1st round two years ago.

    So, we're possibly giving up our most valuable player for ????? Kind of scary if you ask me.

    Hey Unclebuck, I saw the same thing that you saw about JO. According to Vecsey, this is the deal

    "Bynum, Odom, filler + Laker's 1st rounder for JO and Tinsley".

    Again I heard vecsey say this myself.
