This Really Bro goes out to the front office of the Los Angeles Lakers. You just traded away the Reigning 6th man of the year
LAMAR "CANDY MAN" ODOM
-2 time NBA Champion
-6th Man of the Year
-U.S.A. 2010 FIBA Champion
And what did you get in return? ....What'd you say? A 2012 1st round pick and a trade exemption?
Ok Lakers, you really positioned yourself in a great position for Chris Paul and Dwight Howard.......
Lamar Odom agrees!!!!
You think a non-lottery pick (barring any surprises this season from the Mavs) is what the league wanted for Chris Paul or the Magic wanted for Dwight?
The acting owner/GM/Rule Maker of the Hornets David Stern and David Stern's pawn Dell Demps (so-called GM) and Magic GM Otis Smith said REALLY BRO?????
Today, Chris Paul was traded to the Clippers and the Magic announced that they will continue on without trading Dwight for the time being.
There are reports that Lamar Odom requested a trade after hearing his name in rumors. REALLY BRO??? After the Lakers gave you these great opportunities the past 7 years. Your family and TV show are both located in LA. Take it in stride and if you were as loyal to this team, you wouldn't take offense to working out a trade that would have sent you out for the best PG since Magic Johnson.
Now the Clippers are top 4 contenders in the West and the Lakers are left trying to figure out what to do with an $8.9 million trade exemption, and a void to fill after losing the 6th man of the year and a versatile player.
The Los TeBros are really confused on all ends on how this transpired.
Comment on how you think the Lakers will do this season. Or where Dwight will end up at the end of 2011-12.
