But don't count Magic Johnsonas one of them. The Lakers great argued as an ESPN NBA analyst Saturday that the Lakers, and owner Jerry Buss, will need to make serious changes to their veteran-heavy roster during the off-season. Johnson's most pointed suggestion involved the Lakers' trading for Dwight Howard, even if it means giving up Andrew Bynum, Pau Gasol or Lamar Odom.

"Dr. Buss has a lot of work to do," said Johnson. "He's probably going to have to blow this team up after the season if the Lakers lose this series because you have to come back with some fresh faces. You have to pick between the two big men with which one you keep and then you trade the other one."

Johnson didn't aim his criticism solely at the Lakers' front line, arguing that everybody outside of Kobe Bryant should be considered trade bait in what will be an uncertain off-season. In addition to the strong possibility Dallas will eliminate the Lakers, the 2010-11 season will be the last for Coach Phil Jackson. Reserves Matt Barnes and Shannon Brown can exercise player options to stay next season, with Barnes telling The Times' Mike Bresnahan in March he planned to do that and Brown conceding he's open to opting out. And of course, the cloud surrounding the league's expiring collective bargaining agreement on June 30 weighs heavily on all NBA teams.

Presuming the Lakers are eliminated, Johnson anticipates a very busy off-season.

"The Lakers have two problems," said Johnson, who sold his 4.5% ownership stake in the Lakers to billionaire season ticket-holder Patrick Soon-Shiong in October but has kept his title as vice president. "They're too slow and they have no athletes. This is an athletic league now. When you think about all the teams that are in the playoffs right now, they all can run fast and jump high.

"Sometimes you can be together too long," he continued. "This group has been probably together too long.

He's right. Like Jon Barry said, "Otis Smith is going to be offered every single Laker besides Kobe for Dwight".

But we're still in a series and STILL can pull it off. Lets go purple and gold! :clap:

I would love to see the best center in the league on the Lakers, but they really.. really need to blow this team up. The only one from this year who should be there is Kobe.

Fisher has to go if lakers are starting fresh. we need someone who can play defense. just playing well around game can make up for fisher clutch (which I hated because his clutch was making up for his whole bunch of mistake during game)

People here really just want to see the Lakers fall... they do not need to blow it up. An improved bench alone would keep them as contenders. People forget to realize how bad their bench and pg rotation is.

Did Boston need to blow it up after losing to the Magic? Or after losing to LA last year? How about the Spurs after winning the title in '99 then not again until 2003, did they need to blow it up? Absolutely not.

LA needs to tweak some things. They are a terrible 3 point shooting team, they have the worst pg rotation in the league, one of the worst bench units as well. There is not 1 consistent 3 point threat on this team, how many times have we seen kobe get doubled, hit Brown, Blake, Barnes, Artest, Fisher in the corner for 3, and they don't convert? They just need to get certain role players, Brown and Barnes are pretty much gone, so that opens up room.

its not contractually possible to do that. the math doesnt add up. odom bynum future first rounders for howard hedo is probably whats gonna happen should it come to that. arenas is a max player, unless you plan on trading him for kobe it doesnt add up.

I think they have to blow it up. Too many guys on the lakers team are "satisfied" with winning a championship, they dont want to do it again and again every year. Some new faces and fresh blood will change the atmosphere in LA

I don't think it is time to blow it up. What they really need is a better PG, a 3 point specialist and deeper bench. If they get more athletic and improve their outside shooting they can keep Kobe and their frontcourt rotation of Bynum, Pau and Odom intact. Of course the problem is those are their only tradable assets and they are over the cap.

All the talk about Howard IMO is wishful thinking. The Magic will not move him until he demands a trade. Unless he names the Lakers as his only destination they will get so many very good offers I'm not sure the Lakers would have the best package.

Magic is always saying things...........I still think you don't have to blow it up...but if you can get Howard for Gasol and Bynum then you do it....but I don't see that happening............just go and get an athletic pg and sf............and maybe another big.

I think Orlando will ask for Gasol and Bynum for Dwight, Hedo, and contract filler.... plus picks at least...I'd rather have Gasol and Bynum than Odom and Bynum...Orlando would have the potential to be contenders if Arenas would come back in good shape and played at 80% of his former level...

shep33
05-07-2011, 11:30 PM
They lost their fire more than anything else. Kobe still has it, Bynum too... Fish has it, but he's just too old now.

Honestly, Magic is right about one thing, guys are distracted...

Ron- always on talk shows, making rap albums... guy was so focused last year
Lamar- he is doing a reality show during the season. Enough said
Pau- something is wrong with him, has to be, I mean I have never seen such a significant drop off in an all-star's production. I think at this point last year he was probably averaging around 10+ points and 4+ rebounds a game after the first round. Now he's at 13 and 7, with 42% shooting?

Yeah Orlandos only two tradeable assets outside of Dwight is Ryan Anderson and Jameer Nelson possibly Brandon Bass.... I really wouldn't be surprised to see Jameer get moved this offseason..... You traded for Arenas.... He needs to start... just won't work with him coming off the bench and Nelson is probably what you might be able to get a decent player in return for...

I follow the NBA as well as my Orlando magic, If you follow. Orlando you'd already know Otis smith has said "I'd rather let Dwight walk away rather than trade him". No one wants Bynum he's a bum nugget.

There will be teams willing to take on Dwight w/o an extension as there was for Melo. I'm sure there's better offers than some damn Bynum or Gasol.

They're picks are high 20's like what are u smoking? If Bynum n Gasol are flaming out with Kobe what are they gonna do with arenas,Nelson bass etc
Orlando is willing to spend, they still can add pieces like never before to impress Howard.

Honestly, this is the correct way of thinking. If Otis doesn't want to trade Howard, he should be fired immediately... Not only does he get a chance to get two very solid bigs, plus picks, plus maybe even Ebanks, he may also get to unload Turks contract. You do that in a heart beat. I'm a Lakers fan, and I would actually be really hesitant to pull this trade off, we're giving up a lot, and Orlando remains a very good team out east. Their size in the east, which has less size than teams out west is going to be a huge asset. For LA I think Howard is a great place, however, I don't want to give up too much, but in reality we would have to.

I think people are overreacting to what's been going on in the playoffs... just to let people know, Magic Johnson also picked Boston to beat the Lakers before flip flopping back on the Laker bandwagon last year.

Gasol, Bynum, and picks for Dwight and Turk.

That trade makes sense for both teams.

I'm sure Orlando would love to get rid of Arenas too. Maybe a buyout or something like that.

Orlando has the 3rd highest salary I believe. Orlando owes Turk and Arenas alone $97 Million... just those two players alone man. Even if they let Howard walk after next year, they still have to pay Turk and Arenas massive contracts. Basically what I'm saying is that there is no money to spend man, unless they use an MLE, if there is an MLE to sign someone.

You cannot get Chris Paul for Jameer Nelson... Even if the Hornets said yes to that trade, Chris Paul still hasn't gotten paid, and you have to sign him for a max or close to max deal. No matter what, the contracts of Hedo and Arenas are still there...I'm not saying trade Howard to the Lakers, I'm saying you have to trade Howard unless a miracle takes place and somehow Turk and Arenas' contracts disappear.

I'm not saying Ebanks is the key guy in this trade. haha People are overeacting to the Lakers going downhill... Gasol still avg'd 18 and 10 in the regular season... Bynum was 11 and 9.... Gasol is 30... he's still got good years left in him. Bynum is injury prone but still young enough to come back from them at 23.... The Lakers aren't losing because those guys aren't playing well...Go look at their bench... That's why they are losing... Orlando would obviously have to play a little different with Bynum and Gasol but we have a BRAND NEW ARENA..... We can't really afford to not get anything for Dwight...

PS- I've never had a conversation with Dwight and don't know his intentions but we WILL NOT find a better deal than Gasol AND Bynum.... to win now and possibly in the future....

If they are forced to trade Howard, no chance management allows Smith to deal him...

He hasn't made a solid move in years and handling a situation as difficult as Howard's will be won't be easy...

Otis Smith will get fired this offseason...

If you don't think an organization can be set back by trading a superstar, just look at the Timberwolves...

You don't let someone that you don't have full trust in handle trading one of the best players in basketball...

One more thing, several teams can come up with a better deal than Gasol and Bynum...

You'd be suprised how many teams will be all in for Howard's services if the Magic start taking offers...

Why wouldn't the Lakers trade away Bynum? People need to wake up, he isn't a dominate force in the league and will never replace Shaq. I would trade him away for less then Dwight Howard, but because he is young and hasn't been able to stay healthy long enough to prove his lovers wrong he will go for something big.

My prediction is Otis Smith trades Dwight for Rashard Lewis, and then gives Lewis a new $125 million extension. Then he'll probably sign Jason Collins to a five year mid level deal to be the starting center. Then he'll begin his search for some more soft, nonathletic players to play PF and sit behind the 3 pt line and chuck 3s. Is Brian Cook still in the league? If so he'll probably snatch him up. If Magic fans are lucky, he'll ask Patrick Ewing to leave the coaching staff and suit up as the backup center.

if a deal between orlando and L.A is gonna happen, orlando's not gonna get both gasol and bynum, and for that reason, the lakers are gonna have to take on some horrible contracts.

Lakers trade: Andrew Bynum, Lamar Odom, Ron Artest, Steve Blake and Luke Walton
Lakers acquire: Dwight Howard, Gilbert Arenas, and Hedo Turkoglu

Lakers starting Lineup after deal:

PG: Arenas
SG: Bryant
SF: Turkoglu
PF: Gasol
C: Howard

They would have to make additional moves to bring in some shooters.

Orlando's lineup:

PG: Nelson/Blake
SG: J.Richardson/Reddick
SF: Artest/Walton
PF: Odom/Anderson
C: Bynum/Orton

Orlando saves a ton of money, and the Lakers lock up a premier player in the league for many years, without having to give up Gasol.

Saying the Lakers need to "blow it up" is an impulsive, reactionary statement from Magic that I don't agree with. His argument of the Lakers needing some athleticism did have some merit though. LA needs to add a little bit of younger talent in their perimeter players and upgrade at SF and PG. I don't think they need to move one of Bynum, Gasol, or Odom at all. One of the main advantages for LA has always been their superior big man rotation.
