    Well I do remember when the reports first hit they said that La La wanted NY or LA because of career concerns.

    I'm just anxious to get this over with. I hope he does make it to NY some how some way. We havent had a break like this since the Ewing lottery...

    if he goes to the lakers..we should all fear for our lives. i dont think he'll leave LA if he gets traded there..kinda like cliff lee. it seemed he loved the yanks but he got traded to texas and everybody thought right after the season, he'd go to the yanks as a FA, but that certainly didnt happen

    No way this goes down, LAL needs their size and Bynum alone isn't going to get it done, plus LAL has no picks they just traded one to NJ

    Maybe...unless he realizes how difficult it will be for him to co-exist with Kobe.

    It'd be kind of weird for the Lakers to do this. Gasol and Bynum are dominant.

    Keep this in my mind, Melo's favorite player growing up is Bernard King, and...is his favorite team the Knicks?

    That could hold a lot of power in a decision.

    Bernard, send him an invite!

    Also past history the Lakers always seem to get their man. I remember them getting Jabbar when we had first dibs.

    This is a horrific development...
    Ok then, we'll just take NeNe or Bynum (whom I offered to trade Gallo for last year) instead, either this yr or in FAgency.

    No issues here, we win either way. Den giving away their franchise player to a rival...smh

    For a rental? Smh more.

    And then will be cashed strapped with Bynum and/or NeNe although he will be a FA (Bynum salary is 15mil next yr) or forced to give up NeNe

    Perfect for us if we can add another big like NeNe or Bynum.

    Remember " a man with nothing to lose as everything to gain"

    Donnie has put us in the perfect position. We can't lose. Plus we might sign Melo over the summer anyway

    LeBron Wade and Bosh are buddies who decided and conspired for years to play with each other.

    Kobe is notoriously difficult to get along with, especially when there is another star in the mix.

    I just can't see Melo being able to play with Kobe. They both need the ball in their hands all the time.

    Obviously LeBron works with Wade and Bosh because he's such a great facilitator.

    I think that this is partly just investigation into possibilities by the Lakers, but I think it's more of an attempt by the Nuggets to put pressure on the Knicks.
