• Lamar Odom


His agent has been desperately trying to find a sign-and-trade around the league, but there’s little there but the Lakers’ offer of $7 million per season. Odom had a terrific playoffs and Finals on L.A’s championship run, but he has few options to make the Lakers raise their offer. Why has Portland so far sat it out with him? It still makes no sense.

blazers don't want odom, KP says there might be too much hype over this. He said on the radio interview of 95.5 the game that he shocked everyone is mad at him for not doing anything, he also said right after that we had 54 wins last season with the 2nd youngest team and that we don't need roster revising or anything big. don't be surprised if we just get millsap. if utah magically puts in the 7-8 million, we'll look for andre miller or hinrich if they are availible!

No they are not. And you have Odom in the wrong spot. He is a power forward. And if he resigns, the Lakers will always have a combination of Bynum/Gasol, Gasol/Odom, Bynum/Odom in at all times. That is tough to match up with for 48 minutes. They wear teams down with that depth. The Spurs front court is sad next to the Lakers.

RJ < artest / odom (even if odom DOESNT resign, artest is still better than RJ)
duncan > gasol (this one was tight, but i gotta give it to timmyD)

Enough said, we will see this season who the better team is. Its just very funny how everyone is counting the spurs out. Funny people. If were healthy just watch out. RJ is better than artest BTW. artest scored 16 ppg as number 1 player which he always had the ball. Kobe demands the ball so Artest wont have as many touches, i say he averages 9ppg this season. RJ will reign since hes finally on a GREAT team. So Spurs vs. Lakers in WCF 09-10. Spurs in 6.

rj in prime manu dyess tail end duncan tail end I'll give you RJ maybe being in his prime I don't think so but he could be, but Dyess is definitely not in his prime anymore nor is Duncan, Duncan is in the same spot Shaq is in right now not the same dominant player they used to be so they focus on defense and rebounding.. Anyway you look at it the Lakers have more players in their prime and collectively are about 5 years younger, It will be a great season but if you are betting on the Spurs to take out the Lakers you may be disappointed come seasons end.

The Lakers are going to be a tougher team especially if they sign Odom. Artest's presence will pose a problem for whoever he is guarding. Your team made some very decent moves this off season but even before they were far off from being better than the Lakers. Your team got a tad younger and I do think they will win more games and make it farther than they did in the playoffs this year but I firmly believe that they are inferior to the Lakers by a moderate margin. The Lakers just have too much size on their team to be beaten by the Spurs and I think it will be their downfall this coming season.

First off, Odom is a PF, second, that Spurs team will blow on defense. Duncan and McDyess will get in foul trouble with the lanes those three on the outside will open up. On the other hand, the Lakers will be just as good as they were against the Magic, but with another DPOY type guy on the team. No way are the Spurs better given LA was already the best offensive team and just drastically improved their defense as well as offense. Artest being better than Ariza on both ends is a huge boost.

No they are not. And you have Odom in the wrong spot. He is a power forward. And if he resigns, the Lakers will always have a combination of Bynum/Gasol, Gasol/Odom, Bynum/Odom in at all times. That is tough to match up with for 48 minutes. They wear teams down with that depth. The Spurs front court is sad next to the Lakers.

Oh yeah, Duncan is real sad.

Lakers fans are just plain ridiculous.

Duncan owns any of the Lakers frontcourt, any day, any week, any year - all the time.

Actually, Gasol "owned" Duncan in last years playoffs. This year, Duncan and Bynum went head to head the whole game and played to a tie. So no, Duncan does not own the Lakers front court, any day, any week, and year- all the time.

The only Spur who can help on Kobe is Parker. If you think Artest won't burn Jefferson, for cheating on Kobe you're nuts. Kobe will light up Mason like the 4th of July, with single coverage.

Its not that they said something bad its just that their awfully wrong i mean dont get me wrong ill pray:pray: for these guys and when they post again we'll see if theres still hope for these guys:D

Anyways as far as Odom i see this as a bluff i guess LAs offer is a "little north of 8mill a year" so id guess 8.5million this is just to try and get that extra 1.5 to get the 10mill he's asking but i beleive when its all said and done he'll be a Laker.....I HOPE!!!

I do not think the Spurs are better, but I do think that a lot of people in this forum are underestimating them drastically. Perhaps it is just to make their point, but regardless - both teams have to adjust around new players and we haven't seen what either team is capable of with the new roster. No one will see who is better until you can see them matchup up against each other. If I had to guess, I'd say Lakers are better, but not by the drastic leaps that people seem to be claiming. The Spurs may be old, but they have a very scary looking team if healthy.

I don't mind you taking recreational pharms, but really, you should share. Otherwise the folks steeped in reality simply won't see this fantasy world of which you speak.

I'll agree that the current Spurs roster is an improvement over last year, but they are not better than the current Lakers squad, especially if LO signs. The beauty of this, naturally, is that the Lakers will show you just how wrong you are in a few months. :rolleyes:

I love the Lakers but I'd never say I'm a "Laker fan". LA fans are WAY too confident/arrogant about Odom resigning but, if the Boozer trade happens and Millsap resigns with Utah, Odom will officially become a Blazer. KP said he doesn't think Odom is a big deal but after Millsap is off the market, Odom is the next best thing and KP will be SO embarassed that another free agent left him last second that KP will have no choice but to throw all of his money at Odom so he can save some face and sign at least one big name this offseason. Personally I think Odom doesn't even want to go back to LA anymore, after Mitch is understating his value so low and signed Artest to get majority minutes between them, but he cant find any better offers, so he may return he may not.

1. The Lakers offer is alittle over 8 million a year. The Blazers can offer about 9. If they do the Lakers will match because it's only 1 million more.

2. Artest plays SF/SG, Odom plays PF. Artest will not be taking any mins away from LO, he will play Ariza's mins and play SG at times to give Kobe a rest and that takes mins from Sasha. LO, Pau, and Bynum rotate at the 4 and 5 spot and all get about 30 min a piece. I really don't see how you love the lakers if you don't know where LO plays and how much money is being offered and how much Portland can offer.

3. If Hedo went to Toronto because he didn't like Portland, why would LO leave LA for about the same amount of money?

Here is the latest on Odom and the Lakers being close to a contract for alittle over 8 million a year. The source is Ronnie Lester and he is assistant GM of the Lakers. He probabbly knows more about the situation:

Can a deal for Odom be far off?
July 11th, 2009, 4:23 pm · 38 Comments · posted by JANIS CARR, OCREGISTER.COM
How far is far apart?

Lamar Odom is believed to be seeking at least a $10 million contract from the Lakers. The Lakers aren’t willing to part with that kind of dough because of salary cap and luxury tax issues. The deal the Lakers were reportedly offering was for around $7 million.

But the sides might not be as far apart as that. Ronnie Lester, assistant GM, told me Saturday that he heard the Lakers offer now a“little north of $8 million” and he expected a deal to get done early next week.

Stay tuned.

Ok? So let me get this straight he'll leave LA because he feels Mitch is "understating his value" and he'll leave for Portland because the Blazers GM said he "doesn't think Odom is a big deal" and thats not "understating his value"??:rolleyes: Right.

While he may feel that Mitch is understating his value Mitch has always said that Odom is an IMPORTANT part of this team and a big piece of the team he never went out and said Odom is not "a big deal" as the Blazers GM did!!

1. Odom plays F not PF, he plays the 3 with Gasol and Bynum at 4 and 5, and he also plays the 4 with Gasol or Bynum at 5.

2. I didn't know you were best friends with Phil Jackson, next time you talk to him about his coaching decisions can you ask him a few questions from me also? Btw if Artest is pushed to the 2 while Lamar plays 3 than Kobe will get less minutes and last year he avged 35mpg as it is, idk how he would feel about lesser minutes?

3. I know how much he is being offered (8+m) by LA and I also know how much he can be offered by Portland (10+m) but where he plays is upto him not you, me or anyone else.

4. Lamar would receive a bigger role in Portland, more touches, more glory, more minutes and more money. In LA he is now the fourth and arguably fifth option on offense, after Kobe, Gasol, Artest and arguably Bynum. In Portland he'd be the second or third option after, Roy and maybe Aldridge, plus he'd probably receive significantly higher minutes than he would in LA (Under 30 in LA, probably near 35 in Portland)

5. Lakers won't match if KP give Lamar the full 10m, Mitch has acknowledged that if the price is too steep he'll walk away. Phil also acknowledged the fact that being 14m over the luxury tax already means they can only spend SO much on Odom.
Mitch: Sometimes you just have to say no and move on, and we've done that in the past.
Phil: Lamar might not get a contract or level of what we could get last year. He may have to get forced into a situation where he takes less money. If that happens, I hope we're the team that gets to do that (sign him), because I know we can't go above a certain limit - because of our financial situation.
http://www.dailynews.com/ci_12773859
The 8m they're offering him now is the final push to get him to say yes before Utah matches for Millsap.

Do I want LA to get Odom back, HELL YEAH! am I too cocky to admit he may go elsewhere, nope. That's why I said that it is upto Odom to make a decision on where he will go, not you, me or any "Laker Fan" Personally I think he takes the 8m and returns but I'm not gonna say it's set in stone

I never said he played it all of last season, I said he plays F, he plays both 3 and 4, btw he did play 3 only for spurts at a time but he did play it, I watched alot of season games with Bynum/Gasol/Mbenga at 5, Gasol/Powell at 4 and Odom at 3.

Because good teams and good GM's (Which KP certainly is) don't think about how they can "hurt" their rivals. Instead they think about improving their team with players that are a good fit..

LO simply would not be a good fit in Portland..If they traded Travis Outlaw or Batum then yea I think they would be all over LO.. But with those 2 and Aldridge in the fold there is no need to overpay for Lamar.

Milsap would bring a whole different dynamic to their team and he is much younger. It just makes more sense for the Blazers.

why arent the Jazz contenders anymore? A fully healthy Deron, Millsap starting and getting something else for Boozer makes us more than capable to contend...barring injuries of course

they never were contenders. Only in 2007

Because good teams and good GM's (Which KP certainly is) don't think about how they can "hurt" their rivals. Instead they think about improving their team with players that are a good fit..

LO simply would not be a good fit in Portland..If they traded Travis Outlaw or Batum then yea I think they would be all over LO.. But with those 2 and Aldridge in the fold there is no need to overpay for Lamar.

Milsap would bring a whole different dynamic to their team and he is much younger. It just makes more sense for the Blazers.

Are you kidding? maybe not hurt other GMs, but they make moves to lower the other teams chances of winning/beating them:
Boston desperately pursued Rasheed Wallace because Orlando and San Antonio really wanted him, does Sheed put them over the top? No not really, they had a great team when healthy and now health is going to mean everything and anything to this Celtics team now that 4 of their 6 best players are in mid-30s.
Cavs have Anthony Parker and are in desperate need of a big PF, and Drew Gooden would be a perfect fit, but as soon as Orlando said they want Matt Barnes, Cavs jumped at the chance to take him away from them, why? to hurt the Magics chances of beating them.
Right now the team to be in the East is Orlando since they won the ECFs last season and since Dwight is the hardest guy to matchup with, Boston got Sheed and Cavs got Shaq, both of these acquisitions were made to beat Orlando and now Cavs are pushing to get Barnes who'll be extremely limited behind Lebron and won't really thrive standing around waiting for the ball to be put in his hands for a catch-and-shoot.
Good or bad GMs all make moves to beat their rivals, that is just a part of the NBA, teams look at what cost them the win and make adjustments to beat certain teams.

Don't tell Laker's fans he won't resign. They'll throw a tantrum like a little kid.

spurs are better

Lakers are the champs brother show some respect. Spurs have yet to prove anything but lose first round of the playoffs last season. The season before they lost to the Lakers. So I would keep quite for now.

Spurs have gotten better, but until the season is over or the Lakers have been knocked out of the playoffs... the Los Angeles Lakers will be the best team in the NBA.

i think any team that wins a championship and then succeeds in keeping the main core together will guarantee a repeat. It's not just L.A. fans...any fan would say the same under the same circumstances.

what r fans supposed to say..."we'll get knocked out in the 1st/2nd round this year"?

other teams have gotten better. also. lol look at boston to make a statementas they seem to have fallen out of the picture in most peoples mind.(im not a celtic fan)

Odem could e a starter for a lot of teams. Surely some one will make a deal for him paying around 8 mil a season. The only question is will the Lakers actually trade him.

no doubt. both conferences have gotten stronger with certain additions, but no way in hell would i say we are going to lose (what actual fan would say that about their team?). i can say it will be TOUGHER and a great season for ALL basketball, but i wouldnt go saying we are getting knocked out in the first round or the WCF.

im a Laker fan & i am looking forward to a repeat this year (with much confidence but respect to other teams). This season is going to be one of the most competitive we have seen in a while. With so many names moving, you never know, but that doesnt drop my confidence with the Lakers.

but like i said...this type of mentality would apply to any team that just won the championship and kept their core intact.

Dont rule out the Spurs/Nuggets/Mavs. If odoms gone one of those teams could beat the lakers. Especially cuz Bynum is a hack-job and you have no other big men besides powell. Not saying Powell isnt good cuz he is. He just aint Odom. Spurs are a lot better with Jefferson at SF. And now either Howard or Marion is coming off the bench. But its

Lakers
Spurs
Mavs
Nuggets

Magic
Cavs
Celtics
ATL- dont underestimate the Crawford trade.

spurs are better



First of all slooooooooooooooooooooooow down homie! were the defending champs! NO ONE IS BETTER UNTIL SOMEONE ELSE WINS THE CHAMPIONSHIP.I would be happy too if i was a Spurs fan........Mcdyes,Jefferson are solid pickups! but those players aren't going to set you over the top.Duncan is 33 and is looking older than his age (gang of playoff games like Kobe but 3yrs older) The Spurs window is SHUT.....they couldn't even get outta the 1st Round! do you really think those 2 pickups all of sudden make you better than the Lakers? cmon don't be a total homer...

LakersnDodgers
07-13-2009, 07:16 PM
Gotta check the stats but i remember in a few matchups Bynum playing as well as Duncan was playing him? or even a game or 2 outplaying Duncan in points and rebounds.....Plus the worst matchup is Gasol....he is way to big for Mcdyes that would be ugly.

He's re-signing with the lakers because nobody is willing to pay odom that kind of money besides the lakers, i dont even know if he's in the top 10 PF:shrug:
