What can they give... Bynum (who is injury prone and will just leave in 2 seasons anyway) and a bunch of late picks (late picks rarely amount to anything - they are hardly a great asset to a rebuilding team). LAC can offer better, even w/out including Gordon.

Lakers already gave away Odom and nothing can top the package clipps offered that included minny's pic but w/out gordon. Unless NO wants bynum & picks, cash, scrubs? That would be stupid of them tho.

Its in Stern's and NO's best interest to take the clipps offer. he'll be a clipper on xmas day.

no he isnt. I know the Lakers did get cheated out of him. But seriously, he isnt declining. He is a 26 year old PG that has had a few injuries early in his career. He can still be the best PG in the NBA for the next 4-6 years. He isnt even close to declining, he is 26.

you cant win if you are only two with scrubs at least three will be difficult to guard. look at heat they are almost successful but not quite with dallas. what you need is at least a superstar but surrounded with great role players not all superstar. i dont get why lake show is pursuing the big superstars if in fact they have kb, pau and drew. what they need is pg upgrade and they are good.

Jerry got medically cleared to leave and went back to work today, which changes the game as he is the one who loves to play poker and can call Stern on his ********. There is no coincidence this gets out today that they are suddenly back in when the real boss and owner who made the franchise returned

I've seen where it has been said that the main snag has been NOH wants someone to take on Okafors contract.

How do these look? Could Stern decline these deals for Paul? Also The Lakers would still have th TE for Odom for another Big.

Sterling meltedd Stgern's brain.

So, unless u r going to let Sterling jerk u around in the headlines another day/week/month/season, and end up getting hardballed by the Clippers, better do the Laker deal FAST while it's stil there.

Bow down! And take it. Lakers are still only 1 of 2 in the Howard hunt (Dallas is out with Odom deal) so if the Hornets want to send CP3, do it NOW.

Don't forget, Lakers are the wishlist team for Cp3, where he'll sign.

Pau doesn't even have to go. Would you trade for the Minni pick if you thought there was a chance he might land there.

The thought alone puts more uncertainty on the pick, making the Clippers trade riskier.

The possibility of getting a player of that magnitude would excite anyone, wouldn't you agree?

I don't think this happens though. I mean we did get Jerry Buss back (thank God) so this may be a reason why this has resurfaced and I trust him in getting it done A LOT more than his son.. But still, it's a long shot.

I got exited until I saw that Broussard was reporting it.:facepalm:

Lol the plane didn't even get off the runway huh. Broussard killed it for you right there.

Yea, but I mean have some sort of integrity about it.

The same people who said "I'm over CP3 going the the Lakers", " I hope the Lakers don't deal with Stern just so it ****s over the Hornets", "I hope we don't deal with the Hornets again because it already cost us Odom the first time", and all that other **** are now excited?

Hell yea it is exciting to get him, but don't ***** when the Lakers don't get him the first time only to make yourself look like a fool the 2nd time around of negotiations.

And if this falls through, the same exact quotes I posted will be said again. And the 3rd time negotiations come back, there will still be the idiots who clap and dance.

Im a Laker fan, and I'm worried about Cp3's knee. Should focus on Howard instead

MAn...not again...

can the nba just trade CP3 so all teams involve can focus on their respective camps...

I dont see how we can get paul... Only 1 trade I see getting him is a trade of Gasol to minny for Williams and fillers...then you flip them to NO...

Cracka2HI!

It could still easily happen. The Lakers will have to take Scola IMO.

Lakers get; Paul, Scola
Rockets get; Raped, filler from Lakers(Blake, Barnes or World Peace)
Hornets; Martin, Buddinger, Hill and Dragic multiple #1's including Dallas 2012 #1 from Lakers

Rockets would get Gasol BTW. It sounded like they we're willing to give up this much the 1st time around, not sure why it would be any different now.

The Clippers could trade; Kaman, Bledsoe, Aminu and Minny's pick and it is still WAY better than that offer, but I think Stern blew it BIG TIME and the Clippers won't even offer that now.

I think part of Houston's willingness to trade for Pau was the hope to pair him with a center like Marc Gasol or Nene.

At this point the Rockets would take him regardless of who else they would be able to pair him with, trust me. Rockets can't find a big :mad:

For the past week I've been following everything he say's on SC, only for him to back track countless times and look confused. I think the guy is so desperate to get something right for once, that he starts making up **** in hopes to get some sort of credibility back.

why cant the clips just make the current trade for cp3 and then trade blake griffin and fillers for dwight AND a 1st pick

clippers will have cp3 eric gordon and dwight.. AND orlandos 1st pick in 2012 which will be atleast top 10 in a deep draft

That's actually quite brilliant!

This is getting crazy
first Lakers score CP3, then it gets vetoed. The Lakers nonchalantly trade LO to Dallas...playing it cool
Clippers get their shot, and dont want to five up what Stern wants.
Houston misses out on M.Gason, up the Ante on a trade for his bigger brother Pau.... Lakers score CP3.

Merry Christmas Lakers

Can someone help me out here? What's the deal in place? Who are the teams involved (Is it still LAL, NOH and Houston) ?

Like we all know, the race to CP3 is back on again for who knows how long.
Looks like the LA teams will have their first match of the season before they even step their feet into staples center. Both teams are looking to add CP3 and at this point, it is a matter of which deal Stern likes better. As of now, we don't know which other team LAL might include to make the deal work and so we really can't say how their offer will look at the end of the day. We do know it will center around Pau.
Who do you guys think will win this match?
Honestly, iam a LAL fan and would wish to say us but i do think the clippers have young talent to give NO plus a first round pick that could turn out like kyrie Irving pick for cleveland that came from clippers.

So i say LAC win the battle. what do you say?

Why isn't Stern targeting Memphis Grizzlies' OJ Mayo? If you can't get EG, bring in a third team, obviously Memphis is willing to part ways with him. Mayo isn't that much of a step back, if at all one.

if the lakers can hook up with sacramento, they have a chance. they have a lot of good young talent the hornets would love. Pau + Tyreke would be a good combo. very intriguing

of course not.

Stern probably wants Gasol AND Bynum, and using the Clippers as leverage. Seriously, this just needs to stop. It's ridiculous that they can't even wait one day after the lockout to top both the Carmelo and the Lebron scenarios with one that is far more ridiculous and no end in sight.

That's what it feels like. He looked like a fool on the Lebron thing and trying to recapture his credibility smh
