    Default lamar odom

    What about lamar odom for tim thomas , we would get rid of tim thomas and get a 6'10 sf who actually rebounds and is consistent. The only problem is i dont think l.a would accept this trade

    I doubt LA would do this, because one of the big reasons Phil came back to coach LA was because i think he sees a MJ-Pippen combo in Kobe and Odom.

    even if Phil wasnt coaching the Lakers this trade would never fall through, odom is too much of a better player

    u guys are crazy.....tim thomas is way better then odom i dont no why all yall are hatin on timmy for....



    he had prollems in the beginning of the season and he pulled through for us in the second half.....i believe he can still do that......

    odom is a very inconsistant player and hes not much of a shooter

    Lamar Odom is a far better player than Tim Thomas is... Lamar is much younger, gets about 3 times as many rebounds as thomas does, gets more assists than Thomas does, shoots a higher field goal percentage, and is a better free throw shooter... for all those reasons the lakers would not trade odom straight up for TT. no way

    that is true and i respect Tims family issues and i hope they all get cleared up for good BUT did family issues mess with his game for the first SEVEN years of his career??? NO

    i like tim but for Odom, id bite in a second.

    Tim thomas has always been a good shooter... i just looked online to double check he has good Fg and 3pt%

    but i also checked on how many minutes he got per game

    last year he only played 27 mins a game and for his carrear he averaged 26.4 mins for his carrear



    its obvious that he wusnt getting played as much as he should of been and his shooting atributes were great


    carear-443 fg%
    3pt- .368% and thats including a few bad years early in his carear.....

    averaging 4 rebounds a game with less then 30 minutes isnt bad......


    if tim could get more minutes he could be an allstar type player.....but with ariza at sf he wont get those huge number


    but he will still produce like he has been in his carear

    Jayjay makes a good point. Contract year, Tim is playing for money now. He's gonna step it up hardcore if he wants another big contract. Use him to our benefit this season, sign him on the cheap or let him walk when he expires. It's the first step to clearing cap space.

    its not very true at all.....he was a very good player for those 7 years if u read my post!



    he doesnt even play for 30 mins for a game.....



    if he was a 35 min player he would get 6 rebounds a game 18 pnts a game and u guys woulnt be hatin on him like that



    its hard to put up all star numbers if u dont get the minutes to play
