Nope. They want Dwight here, if they were to flip on their decision to trade him, he would have been gone before the deadline. But if his drama continues and he demands things be done, I can see him being moved.

And just to clear things up. I'm sure that Bynum is a bigger douche than Dwight is. All his little antics on and off the court, selfishness, etc. The media is the one that makes Dwight seem like the anti-Christ. All these "reports" saying that he doesn't want to play in the playoffs, etc, its all bullcrap. Sure he flip-flopped on what he wanted to do, but he didn't go to the media and tell them to publish that. Why would he stay another season if he didn't want to compete with this team? And the whole situation about wanting Stan fired, he did agree that he made that request before, but not during this season. If anything it was brought up in the off-season after we were eliminated by the Hawks in the first round. And I can see why he might have felt that way, it was a frustrating loss and he felt the team was taking a step back. If we aren't going to make any moves, the coach is the next viable option. And at least he is learning. When asked by a interviewer what he would have done better, he said keep his mouth shut.

If I were Orlando, I would have gotten Dwight to sign the ETO then flipped him to LA for every thing I could have. This guy is a serious drama queen and a *****. He doesn't have the mentality it takes to play in a big market. He will crumble

They should regret it. Bynum fits in better in Orlando because of his three point shooting.

Yup, cause you know teams are gonna try and low-ball him now cause of his attitude. I see teams waiting out till next offseason and trying to sign him outright. Hopefully ORL gets more than what Toronto/Cleveland got in their respective S/Ts

And the media hasn't played any role in how Bynum is viewed now? Just a general question for everyone. What has Bynum really done that is so bad in terms of affecting the Lakers on the court? Outside of two fragrant fouls he has had over 7 years, he has not done much. He has picked up some technical fouls here and there for arguing calls, but nothing egregiously bad. Also if you have actually seen the vast majority of his interviews off the court, you would see that he is a pretty soft spoken and honest dude. The whole situation with the 3 pointer was comical if anything else - the media just blew it out of proportion. If anything Bynum just needs to grow up a bit. A douche is someone like DeMarcus Cousins...

BigBongTheory
04-19-2012, 02:21 PM
^Yes, Bynum just has to grow up a little man. At times he just slows down and gets relaxed when he should continue to go at it. The maturity factor should change with age though I presume.

I don't know about you, but as a management from another team with all the stuff this guy has pulled the last few months, I know I wouldn't give up a ton for him like maybe I would've last summer.

That's just my opinion. I'm sure there are those that could careless and would take him in a second.

I might be a little delusional but are the Lakers better without Kobe? I'm thinking they should move Kobe this offseason in return for some young players and/or draft choices to surround Bynum, Gasol, & Sessions.

They're not.
The Bulls were winning without Rose too. But both teams need their superstar to even have a chance at the 2nd round of the playoffs.

That would be a smart move by the Lakers,because Kobe could get you a lot of young talent to surround Bynum.But it would never happen because Kobe is LA,he brings the team a lot of money,and the fans would throw a riot if they ever traded Kobe.

I see, I think his Value is contingent upon his willingness to sign an extension more than anything else. If he's willing to sign a extension for a trade Orlando still has leverage. But I can see where your coming from if he doesn't agree to that extension, Orlando may not get as much value as this season.

of course they made a mistake, atleast bynum isnt bipolar. dwight didnt want to go to 90% of the teams in the NBA and the only one he wanted to go to has a pissed of d-williams who now will probabley end up in dallas.
bynum is dominating right now and doesnt present nearly the headaches dwight does (alot of that could have to do with being in a veteren locker room with kobe and gasol) but still dwight is making lebron james look like a saint with all the **** hes been pulling in orlando, dwight is starting to get looked at as a quite tool.

The closest thing to equal value orlando could have ever gotten would have been bynum which im pretty sure is out the window now

It also depends on commitment. Would they rather face the headache of Bynum or Dwight if it meant long term? Answer is obviously Dwight.

Yeah great move by the Magic!

if dwight stayed in LA, then it is absolutely worth it. Replace bynum with dwight on the lakers and they win a championship instead of being projected to be bounced in the 2nd round (maybe they reach the CF, but even if they do they dont really have a shot at the title).
edit: my bad didnt read the title right, as a magic fan i honestly still dont want bynum.

ya right. Dwight had asked for SVG to be fired long before the play offs. some1 in management just recently let SVG know, so the ***** move is from the organization not dwight. The magic organization needs a change. they need to fire every one in the FO, and its not to appease dwight its to appease the fans. Remember when that idiot Van der weide (ex-Magic CEO) drunk dialed dwight at 3 AM??!?! Enough said.

Because Bynum wouldn't mind being the first option on a team like the Magic with no one around to take shots away from him.. Bynum's already won titles, now all he wants is to be the best player he could be and going to the Magic as the sole first option would be perfect for his career.

I'm starting to hop on the Bynum bandwagon. I think he surpassed or is very close to surpassing DH as the best center in the league. AB is already better offensively and his defense is very good, and he doesn't cause locker room problems as much as DH. I would take AB is he continues to stay healthy.

-dwight a better post player (more efficient in the post), bynum isnt even the most efficient post player on his team

-dwight is a much better defender than bynum. Bynum isnt even a very good defender, he's good, but very inconsistent. LMAO ur talking about a guy who couldnt stop 5'0 jj barrea from scoring in the paint LOL. Dwight is an ELITE defender, 3X defensive player of the year and should be getting his 4th really soon.

23pts-18rbs-0blks on 10-27FG, 18pts-11rbs-1blk on 7-17FG, 16pts-30rbs-2blks on 7-20FG, 30pts-8rbs-3blks on 11-19FG, 23pts-16rbs-0blks on 9-24, 21pts-7rbs-0blks on 8-16FG and 31pts-9rbs-1blk on 12-14FG...

That's an average of 23.1ppg-14.1rpg-1.0bpg on 46.7% from the field without Kobe; give me a consistent 21-14.5-2 on 57+FG% any day of the week (and that's with significantly less touches). Kobe's the reason why Bynum can be so dominant, he takes SO much pressure off Bynum and creates a lot of easy looks for him.

Dwight >>>>> Bynum; maybe if this back injury was serious, you'd actually have a case moving forward.

Bynum isn't consistent, one day he brings it in the scoring column, the next day he has a big rebounding day, the next day he is a big defensive presence; you just don't know what to expect from him. Dwight's much more consistent in all of those fields and he's significantly better in the pnr and at defending the pnr. We've all see Bynum just sag in the paint, giving the opponent's the oppurtunity to just shoot the jumper, Dwight goes out there and contests everything, yet guards the paint better as well and recovers to lead the league in defensive rebounding.

Offensively, Dwight averaged 23ppg last season, the reason why his scoring #s took a hit this year is because he's shooting a career-low 49% at the charity stripe, I expect him to bounce back next season. Dwight will give you 21+ppg on over 55% each and every season, with more touches, that could easily be 25+ppg. He's also used to double/triple teams, so he knows how to score and pass against them.

With Kobe on your team, you wouldn't need to feed Dwight the ball in the closing 2mins. If you are just comparing players, then Dwight is the better scorer, rebounder, defensive player and passer, so the last 2mins wouldn't make or break the bank IMO.

Yes, of course.

Lakers have now dodged TWO bullets this season; first of all, we dodged Odom's complete implosion that would've ruined Mike Brown's first season coaching here, because Odom (bizarrely) requested to be traded and let us totally off the hook, allowing us to quickly dump him for a 1st round pick, which was for sure the absolute high water mark of his trade value.

THEN, Orlando declined to send Dwight Howard for Bynum, even with the Lakers offering to send some other picks and pieces and take back some bad contracts on useless players in return.

Now Bynum is CLEARLY the best center in the league, as of April 2012, and it's not even close, and Howard has morphed into a Starbury-Oden of some sort, who will almost surely sit out till February 2013, raking Orlando over the coals the whole way, and then spring back into action at full strength 3 weeks before the trade deadline, when the level of drama is highest. By that point though I think the Magic will just be completely ****ed out and cross-eyed.

Bynum was pressing Dwight and has now leapfrogged him completely for #1 center in the league.

So yeah, we dodged TWO bullets this season, which is incredible. The Dwight Howard one is probably the worst. If we'd sent Bynum and everything else they wanted and taken back Turkoglu, and then Dwight had broken down, wow. And then Bynum takes over in Orlando and leads the league, has an MVP season. Ugh. So bad.

Nah bynum is more skilled offensively, but dwight is a much more efficient post option and thus better as a number one option on offense. Bynum isnt even the best post option on his team, both gasol and kobe are more efficient in post ups.

Dwight handles double teams better than bynum and gets doubled much more often.

Bynum 2rebounds in a game,yeah he's the best center in basketball.

Seriously just because he scores more than Dwight,it doesn't make him the better all around player.

If Bynum is Hakeem, Dwight is Shaq; if Bynum is Melo, Dwight is Lebron; if Bynum is Kobe, Dwight is Durant... Dwight is the more efficient/productive scorer and will continue to be, as long as both get a similar amount of touches.

Bynum had a 32% usage rate in Kobe's absence, yet averaged only 23ppg on under 47% shooting from the floor.

MVP! MVP! MVP! :rolleyes:

no question they regret it, there is no way they will get a player remotely close to the level of Bynum, they'll just trade Dwight for a bunch of young talent that wont equal anything they will b losing

Honestly, they might regret not trading him for anyone. Dwight is a bit of an unknown right now. We don't know if he will be the same player after this surgery. Even if he comes back the same, he will still walk. Orlando should have traded him before the season started imo for Brook Lopez and picks.
