The TRUTH about Sports

Lakers’ Christmas Wish

So it seems like the Los Angeles Lakers are interested in Chris Paul and Dwight Howard.  Let’s just say it works cap-wise, how the heck would New Orleans and Orlando basically hand the Lakers the Championship. The Lakers starting lineup would be Chris Paul at the point, Kobe at the 2, Ron Artest at the small forward, Dwight Howard in the middle and Derrick Caracter at power forward?  In essence, the Lakers are going all in with this move, if it happens.  I do like trading away Andrew Bynum.  He’s had knee problems for a while and I don’t think he likes being a 4th option. I’d love to see how he is when he’s the man.  Although I’d miss Pau Gasol, getting Howard will give the Lakers a physical presence in the paint.  As for L.O., consistency has always been a problem for Lamar.  Double-double one game, M.I.A. the next. Getting Chris Paul will finally give the Lakers a true point guard, one they haven’t had since Magic. I can see the Dwight Howard trade happening but not Chris Paul. Paul has made it obviosu that he wants to go to NY to play with Carmelo and Amare.  Paul is not an LA guy.  He’s East Coast. If the Lakers made this move, it would be the sickest every.  Better than the Shaq signing, better than the Pau Gasol. Anyway, Lakers better be good if they want Santa to give them title hopes for the next 5 years…

  1. Paul, Dwight and Kobe would be one ridiculous good lineup and I believe far superior than what the big 3 have in Miami or had in Boston. Being able to feature a point, wing and legitimate big man is so much more balanced than having two wings and a big, if you can call Chris Bosh a big. With that being said, it’s unlikely this could happen in LA but I mean, if CP3 and D12 decide to team up somewhere it would be quite a tandem indeed. Or if they go their respective ways they will add a lot to a contender. It’s going to be real interesting to see where these guys go and I sure would be surprised if they decide to stay on the only franchises they have ever known.
