[SPORTS] LAKERS DEFEAT THE HEAT 93-83 [FINALS PREVIEW?]

The Lakers and Heat met up yesterday at the Staples Center for there 2nd of 2 matchups for the season. This time the outcome was very different. The Lakers who have only lost 2 games at home, made sure to keep it that way. The Miami Heat, who were without Chris Bosh, because of a death in his family, came into Staples after losing by 1 to the Utah Jazz. Where most criticized James again, for not being willing to take the last shot in the game, instead opting to pass to teammate Udonis Haslem.

Okay so first let me just say this, people get over it! Lebron James does not, and may not ever develop the killer instinct of Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant. Just allow him to be the new era Oscar Robertson of the league. We have never witnessed a specimen of his type when it comes to an ALL AROUND GAME. Now don’t get this twisted for me becoming a Lebron James fan, uh uh..won’t happen. LOL

Now, with that being said, shout out to Metta World Peace aka the artist formerly known as Ron Artest, who from the tip, had his sites set on making LJ work for every shot, point, assist he made. If you were paying attention, you would have seen that MWP has dropped some significant amount of weight since the beginning of the season, and his body finally looks toned, chisled, and ready to do work. It’s also evident by the fact that he has had 3 dunks in the past 3 games. To me he was the difference in this game. His stat line read, 17pts/4steals (the numbers that matter most to me). Check out what Ron said during a post game interview with NBA TV, as he made the Lakers Big 3, the big 4!

I could go on to talk about the great play of Andrew Bynum as well, but at this point, people should really be getting over this trade Bynum for Howard thing. It’s one thing that I can’t stand, is panting over a guy who does not want to be on your team. Howard is so afraid of the continual comparisons to Shaq, that he is willing to forfeit his possibility of becoming a champion right now, by playing with the best player in the world, Kobe Bryant. So if Brooklyn is where he wants to be, then so be it. We will see him in the finals, and take his candy one more time.

 

[SPORTS] LAKERS TRADE RUMOR: GASOL/BYNUM FOR HOWARD?

In the midst of this NBA All-Star weekend, a trade rumor broke out (Peter Vecey) stating that the Orlando Magic turned down the Lakers offer of Bynum for Howard straight up, but are willing to restructure the deal in order to trade their superstar center. What type of restructuring you are asking? Well, the Magic has made it no secret that the only way they would trade D12 to the Lakers is if they (Lakers) would be willing to part with both of their All-Star big men, so that includes Pau Gasol, according to John Cherwa (LA Times).

Let me just say this, NOOOOO. I really hope the Lakers will not do this deal. Right now they have all the leverage. The Magic will not find another team that can even come close to value as for as players go, if they trade him elsewhere. The New Jersey Nets only big man, Brooke Lopez, even with an injured Bynum is nowhere near his talent level. Honestly Bynum and Howard balance out for me simply because Bynum is better offensively, and Howard is better defensively.

People continue to talk about an injury prone Bynum, yet he does not describe what the true meaning of injury prone is to me, that title goes to a player such as Greg Oden. Not to disrespect Oden, but the injuries that Drew has obtained throughout his career were legit, like coming down on a players foot, or Kobe literally running into his knee head first. And at 7’1, 280, yeah that’s a recipe for disaster. Drew is playing his first injury free season, and his production is way up. People also forget he is averaging 16pts/13rbs with a superstar on his team. Meaning he doesn’t get the ball that often. So, I just hope the Lakers are not desperate and really look at the big picture.

UPDATE: The Magic will throw in Jameer Nelson and Hedo Turkaglou as well. So the Magic would get Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum, and the Lakers would receive, Dwight Howard, Hedo, and Jameer. Heck it looks like they should have just traded Kobe to Orlando…smh. Didn’t our team defeat that team in the championship..oh but our bench was much stronger then..lol.

Ah I’m up in the air on this one. I know the Lakers have to look to the post Kobe era, just not sure this will elevate us to the top? What you guys think?
