    Default Dwight Howard Traded to Lakers

    http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/82...-deal-complete

    Wanted to post because I didn't see it anywhere else. Bynum is a 76er now...

    Thoughts on how it affects us?

    @SamAmicoFSO: May have already been reported, but my sources say Howard to Lakers deal is complete.

    Bynum in Philly makes them better too, trade makes non sense to Denver in my opinion and Orlando gets screwed.

    I would say it actually improves our chances at a better record. No Dwight means Magic, No Problem... Bynum is not gonna make a big enough impact with the 76ers to offset loss of Iguodala and increase their odds against us, either... AND, he may not resign with them next year? Win for us!

    It's championship or bust for the Lakers. I predict bust.

    Sixers just made off like Bandits and are likely laughing hardest out of everyone who is not part of the Magic Organization. Not really sure about how good/bad it is for the Nuggets, but at minimum I can say they improved defensively. I have to wonder though, what made the Magic go through with this trade? I know the Lakers, Nuggets and 79ers give protected 1st round picks, but it just seems odd that this is deal that made the Magic go "Well we can't do better than this" or something to that degree.

    Joke of a trade for orlando.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Doubt it, Nash, Kobe, Artest, Gasol and Howard? = Championship.

    I could argue every player you just mentioned that is not named Dwight Howard is on the decline. And Howard has back issues...

    What does worry me about this is that I believe that Bynum will likely end up in Atlanta next year, as he for all intents and purposes is beginning his free agency now. Don't like how Atlanta has positioned themselves to be players next year in free agency and it seems as if their might be motivation from around the league for players to exodus there. We will see

    You know, **** like this is exactly why the NBA is losing more and more fans every year. There is no point to even watch the NBA if your a fan of smaller markets anymore. The NBA happily ****s over 27 teams for the benefit of 5.

    I hate the NBA, I really do. However, I have this love for the Indiana Pacers. I can't not follow them, its sad. However, of all the sports, NBA is my least favorite. My love for a random team hundreds of miles away keeps me here and keeps me following every single game they play.

    And end up with less $$$? I know Dwight has made multiple dumb moves and gutted his PR image, but even he knows it's all about the green.

    NBA isn't screwing over anyone. The NBA owners and GMs are. They are the ones who make these deals that are questionable and make us all go "wtf?". They don't complain when bad deals like that happen, but when the Chris Paul deal was going through (It was fair for all three teams) you saw Dan Gilbert and some others crying it isn't fair that the Lakers get the good players. You can't knock the Lakers for actually being smart and sometimes lucky. It's why the Lakers, Celtics and Spurs are teams that for the most part are in contention multiple times during a decade. They will make bad deals every now and then, but you don't see them consistently making horrific deals over a long period of time.

    I'm still wondering myself why the Magic went through with this as if it was the best thing they could get for Howard. I'm sure they could have done better.

    Waiting for Dwight to say he won't re-sign with the Lakers, and the whole trade to fall apart, hopefully that doesn't happen for all that is holy.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    At least he's out of the East, but I hate to see him end up on the Lakers.

    However, Roy Hibbert has to be smiling. And yes, I think he can take Bynum.

    I can argue that those players even though they are in declined together make a badass team.

    The NBA isn't losing fans after the recent so called "super team" trend. They're gaining them. In droves. You may not like it, but the public absolutely loves it. This won't hurt the NBA's reputation in any way, shape, or form.

    I'll admit it: I'm jealous of Lakers fans. Can you imagine having your favorite team go through guys like Mikan, Wilt, Kareem, Shaq, Bynum, Gasol, and Dwight? Unbelievable. And that's just their centers.

    I forget they also signed Antawn Jamison, so he may start at 3 for them. Nash, Kobe, Jamison, Gasol, Dwight. Ugh. At least they're old and out west. Playing against them in 2k13 will be a pain in the ***.

    I do take Philly more seriously now. They just got a major upgrade at their weakest position for a guy playing the most disposable position in the NBA who, in a vacuum, probably never nets you a guy like Andrew. They probably won't challenge for the #2 seed, but they could be top 4, I think. If not, they just made the first round of the playoffs more dangerous for everyone else.

    The NBA doesn't have the power to tell the Lakers not to screw every team and they for sure don't have the power to tell teams not to get screwed by the Lakers.
