Chris Paul could become a Laker this weekend. After Commissioner Stern vetoed the first trade, which would have sent Pau Gasol to the Rockets, Lamar Odom to the Hornets, along with Rockets Luis Scola, Kevin Martin, & Goran Dragic. Now I’m seeing that the Celtics have agreed to trade Jermaine Oneal to the Hornets (which he would actually become a Laker) to become a part of a package that the Lakers would send to Orlando in hopes of landing the 3 time Defensive Player of the year. I’m not sure what the Celtics would get back in return for him (tacos..lol). But seriously, I just want this deal to be done, because Lamar may not decide to recover from this, and I feel bad for Pau, but we all know this is part of the game.
The bottom line is this, Dwight Howard was pushing for a trade to New Jersey because the NBA nixed the Chris Paul trade. So it’s my belief that when he seen that, playing with Deron become his 2nd choice of pg’s to play with. But now that the trade is still possible, he got permission from Orlando to talk with the Lakers, (also the Mavs, & Nets), so we have to see what happens. But the truth is, I really don’t believe the Mavs have a true chance if they have to give up Jason Kidd, because Howard wants to play with an all-star caliber guard. Someone that can get him the ball in his comfortable spots. Chris Paul is definitely the one he would want to play with.
The Mavericks will sign Vince Carter to a 1yr deal, so I wonder will the Lakers take a look at Rip Hamilton, just to add depth to the roster? Because once the trades go down (if they go down) the bench will have to be revamped. Ah no sleep till the deal is done.
Looks like Dwight Howard is NOT having dreams of following in Shaquille Oneal’s footsteps, and bolting Orlando to end up in LA. It’s now being reported that Howard’s first choice is to remain in Orlando and create his own “footsteps” for others to follow in. Honestly I don’t think that the Lakers are in DIRE need of Howard. Of course I’m no fool, if the Lakers were able to do a straight up trade for the center, that’s one thing, but giving up the farm, NO. In my opinion, a point guard is much more needed. Especially being that now the triangle may be gone forever, so they definitely will need a point guard to come in and start for the aging Fisher.

Dwight Howard is not planning on following Shaquille O’Neal’s lead and bolting the Orlando Magic via fee agency.
Or so Howard is saying a year before the he hits the open market following next season. The center is is under contract with the Magic through the 2012-13 season, but can terminate the deal a year early.
O’Neal, looking to take his talents to Hollywood, left the Magic for the Los Angeles Lakers after the 1995-96 season.
“I’m not trying to run behind nobody like Shaq or be behind somebody else,” Howard told the Orlando Sentinel Monday.
“I want to start my own path and I want people to follow my path and not just follow somebody else’s path. I want to have my own path, and I want to start that here in Orlando. But I can’t do it alone. Not only do I need the right teammates, but I need the city behind me. That’s the only way it’s going to get done. We can change this small city that we have — this small market that we have — and we can make it a big market.”
So Laker fans don’t hold your breath to see this
instead hope and pray to see something like this Should Mike Brown do completely away with the triangle, Chris Paul not only has superstar status, but is definitely the best point guard in the league right now. I know D. Rose won the MVP, but all in all, CP3 is the best all around.
