    The funny thing? The Lakers will probably win AT LEAST 1-2 rings in the next 4-6 years, while the rest of the NBA continues to suck ****.

    The two best teams I could come up with were GSW (maybe a Lee+Barnes type package) or Memphis (Gay+), both of which could go some way to kick-starting a rebuild and keeping Dwight on, while allowing Kobe to contend for the last two years of his career.

    I haven't really seen it talked about much yet, I think because everyone's been assuming that they'll turn it around and that if they don't they'll just move Pau - but I think a possible Kobe trade could become a real story before too long.
    Warriors wouldn't trade lee and Barnes for either gasol or Kobe

    Howard sees the young talent the sixers have and will come to Philly ray:

    We could easily trade Nash who'd be an expiring, but he can still play at a high level offensively. Dude is as efficient as ever. He might even retire by then.

    I personally think if Dwight stays, LA will be the best scenario for him in two years. The franchise becomes his, he gets a max deal, gets to be in movies/tv shows, and has the entire city of LA behind him.

    Now... I have no clue what he's going to do lol. But in 2 years, we can build him any team he wants basically.

    No way. In the last 15 years Lakers have never gone through as rebuilding stage and it's impossible that next 2-3 years they plan to do it. There were 2 years, after O'Neal departure, when Lakers weren't contenders, but after it, they signed Gasol and reached three successive NBA finals.

    I can't imagine Kobe Bryant playing without the chance of win championship, and I don't believe that he sign by other team so if Howard leaves the team, it's easy to see Lakers signing another good player in free agent market this summer.

    That is why Lakers haven't traded Pau Gasol yet. They want to keep a good core to surround Kobe Bryant, and Pau could be the next Lakers center. If they sign a player such as Josh Smith to play as PF, they would be a contender with a lineup as: Nash, Kobe, Metta, Smith and Pau.

    This lineup would be even better to D'Antoni system as Smith fit better than Pau Gasol to PF position. Howard is a spoiled brat, and Lakers will be better without him. Nobody realizes that he is playing without enthusiasm?

    He has created bad climate in the locker room. However, if L.A.L want to fight to win, they must to change this coach because D'Antoni is no the man. Even Steve Van Gundy, or Scott Skiles would be better coach than him.

    Great, that doesn't mean Dwight will want to stay.

    If D'antoni is still there, I think he leaves, and they'll have some trouble attracting free agents.

    That's what happens when you play with a me-first player. I think the Lakers ****ed themselves up when they gave Kobe that albatross contract. If things go the way they are going I don't see Dwight sticking in LA just to watch a 77 years old Kobe leading the league in shot attempts.

    Yeah, I can't see Howard resigning there. Also the Lakers are the type of team that doesn't rebuild they just reload.
    Favourite Teams:

    Boston Red Sox: 46-52, games this week vs. Blue Jays (4), Rays (3)
    Indianapolis Colts: Good draft and off-season so far.
    Looking for new NBA team to cheer for
    Ottawa Senators: 37-31-14, season over, free agency begins this week.
