    Who's going to force them to do that?

    As a Lakers fan, you know that Bynum injured both his knees against memphis in 08 and 09, so why are you asking?

    I'd say the Lakers won the deal.

    Sad to see one of my favorite Lakers be injured again. He will be another player that had a lot of talent and potential, but was never able to reach his true potential because of injuries.

    I'm new here. And as you can tell from my name here, I am NOT a Bynum fan. And dude, you are totally wrong here. The Sixers gave up two extremely promising young stars. Vucivic is a great young Big, and comes from a great family history of Basketball. Bynum has 12 major surgeries on BOTH his knees before the Sixers traded for him. I mean they knew he was nothing more then Damaged goods. Giving Iggy away was no big deal. Bit two young HEALTHY Star potential players and Multiple draft picks ??? Sorry dude but that was a HUGE mistake by my Sixer team. Re-signing Bynum to anything more then a NBA Vet MINIMUM contract is suicide. I say just let the Fat, no kneed Bum walk away and let some other STUPID team sign him.

    If this is true, my heart goes out to the Sixer fans. After all of the hype and excitement generated, to end up with a Brandon Roy situation is simply awful. They have no backup plan after this.
    This.

    The whole time the Sixers were contemplating this move I was thinking they were insane.

    It was obvious they were just giving away Iggy. Tragic situation for Philadelphia but completely avoidable.

    They just got sucked into the "get Howard" sweepstakes that LA was driving.

    Idiots.

    the flip side to this is if Bynum worked out we would instantly become a top 5 team in the east with youth and Upside and would be contending in 3 to 4 years

    one way or another this trade puts us in a better spot 5 years from now then we where last year
    Good lord, can you please insert a period or 12? Hard as hell to read!

    You guys are missing the big picture. Regardless of what happens to Bynum they were ready to literally give Iggy away to clear cap. If there's a remote chance of getting Bynum on the court its still a win. Worse case scenario he's trade bait for a contender, still a win.....

    What?? You are reaching at best. That's not a viable byproduct of trading Iggy. They could've simply just PUT the ball in Jrue's hands, they didn't have to trade Iggy to do that. Doug Collins is a player's coach- if he said to do it , they would have all fallen in line.

    Bottom line, Sixers lost the trade in egregious fashion. I feel for Sixers fans, really I do, but at this juncture I have no clue how a justification for trading away Iggy, Harkless and Vucevic for essentially nothing can be made.

    A) We didn't trade any picks B) How in the hell are Nik Vucevic and Moe Harkless future stars?!?!?!

    cccFirst of all, I said Vucevic & Harkless are POTENTIAL Stars. And they are. And, BOTH are extremely more fundamentally founded in Basketball skills then Bynum is. Also, the Sixers DID trade away draft picks in that deal. I suggest you do a little research son before you try and post with the " BIG BOYS " here.

    But really, it was Lamar and Kobe those two times, we just happened to be playing Memphis both times.
