And Chris Paul is a Laker...
Great, now it begins, Nets offering Lopez and 2 first round picks (a real trade deal, not belly button lint) to Orlando for Dwight Howard.
And Chris Paul is a Laker...
Even if the nets get howard and we get tyson, the knicks still have a better team, and im from brooklyn.
I dunno, I'm just really worried about D12 going to the Nets. And not just for the short term, for the long term, I dont think Knicks ownership is taking the Nets organization seriously. I hate the idea of some team coming into our borders and making a fool of us......maybe I'm just overreacting....
We beat D12 and Orlando without a true center last year, and they had Nelson plus more.
We beat D Will and the Nets, and he had Lopez again with no true center.
Hate to say it, but with D'Antoni plus defense, teams will struggle to keep up with us. We win on two fronts.
Orlando has stated that they are not going to just let Dwight dictate where he goes and that they are not losing him for nothing....both proclamations sound like they are nixintg any deal to The Nets
Just like CP3 wanted to be a Knick does not mean that is the only place he re-up his deal!
The Lakers can offer up a much, much better package than New Jersey could!
Andrew Bynum,Matt Barnes and Gasol plus either a first rounder or taking back Hedo's contract (maybe both) gets this deal done!
Artest(refuse to use new name)
Equals NBA Championship(s)
A 5th seed in the East (no different than if Howard stayed put) with about 25 million in cap room after resigning Bynum next year to keep rebuilding.
or they end up with Brook Lopez and two late first rounders, you be the judge
tampering charges coming up for Brooklyn and Houston
What a crazy year for the NBA!he New Jersey Nets met with Dwight Howard Thursday night in a move that would be a violation of the league's tampering rules, according to multiple sources.
Howard met with Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov and the Nets general manager Billy King in Miami, sources said. Howard was joined by a few business associates.
The meeting violates the NBA's tampering rules because Howard's current team, the Orlando Magic, did not know about the meeting or give the Nets permission to meet with Howard, according to the sources.
NBA.com reported that the Magic are considering filing tampering charges against two teams, one being the Nets. SI.com reported that the other team is the Houston Rockets.
The meeting was the first between Howard and the Nets but the second between Howard's representatives and the Nets.
At the meeting, the group discussed a deal in which Howard would be traded to New Jersey. The plan was for Howard to ask Orlando to trade him Friday morning.
Sources said the Magic had been discussing a possible trade with New Jersey the past few days but that nothing had been agreed to.
psuh hard for the Nets, because if they get better no doubt youll see more of Beyonce whose hotter than LaLa
