    Delusional if you are the hornets so far as I can tell.

    Re: Bynum for Chris Paul

    I like the idea of the Hornets becoming the Sonics.

    In regards to the trade? I'd go for it in a heartbeat. We need a player like Paul, no disrespect to Fish as he's a smart player, but getting Paul would be huge. Would take an offensive load of Bryant, which has to happen. Bryant may also get 'better' shots having a guy like Paul on the court.

    Losing Brown and Blake for Okafor may be hard to swallow though. Okafor would give us a decent big. But we'd lose a lot of strike off our bench. Okafor is solid tough and would cover Bynum's departure. There's positives and negatives to the second part of that trade. But I'd want a big to cover Okafor. And Fish could cover Blake on the bench, and do a better job than Blake. Brown's loss would be the nasty part.

    Would love to see Chris Paul playing for us. Gives us a long term player for the future as well, unlike Bynum. We could also make some sort of play for Oden if that's possible next season to cover Bynum's departure. Although who know's what sort of role Oden would play when and if he returns to the NBA?

    David Stern to trade Chris Paul for Andrew Bynum?

    If that happens the value of the Hornets will go down. Stern will have a hard time selling a team with a franchise player that is a distant relative of Sam Bowie.

    In Response to Re: Bynum for Chris Paul : Solid response. See my other post for more in depth. What does 'I want a big to cover Okafor mean' And you have given up on Bynum as a 24-12 for many years Center? If the Hornets feel he'd be an injury prone bust that gets you 70 games one year 40 the next and goes for 17-9, then they don't make the trade. LA or whatever team gets Paul, probbaly has to take Oak's contract b/c it makes it that much more enticing for a future owner. You could toss in two 1st rd picks and try to take David West over Oak, but you don't get any bigger or able to defend Shaq/Perk... just get a few more points than Bynum would give you, and I doubt NO would do that over just getting a good return to rent West to another contender. Maybe toss in the 1st rd pick or two and try to keep Brown?

    Oops, that was a typo, substitute Bynum where I wrote Okafor.

    I'm more worried about us getting by OKC and San Antonio to be honest. Attempting to build a side to beat the Celtics would be our downfall this season if we go down that route.

    Re: Bynum for Chris Paul

    Sounds good initally, but it does leave the Laker bench pretty bare in the bigs department. I'm not overly impressed with Okafor. Still, that does give the team more of a sure thing in Paul than Bynum has been.

    Re: Bynum for Chris Paul

    bynum for paul - never gonna happen slackers fans and here's several reasons why:
    1) bynum is greg oden with a big contract and 2/3 the potential, but 2x the waistline. See sam bowie for career and girth illustrations.
    2) NO could get more in talent from any other team - why would they deal to the lakers when NJ would have a far better talent collection, as would Min, Memphis, LAC, IND, DEN, and NYY?
    3) 1/3 of the LA Market Dominos and Doughnut shops would go out of business, worsening the already rough california market. Without Tubbs Bynum to eat the gnp of peru daily, these businesses would go out of business, creating a catastrophic chain of events. 
    4) Greg Oden's self esteem would go down 11 points. Without Bynums overpaid, fat contract and the news weekly tracking his possible return, it would then push the shadow on the second biggest disappointment on the west coast, oden, which would make his ego deflate even more, making him look 93 (vs his current appearance of 74). Said Bill Russell regarding the subject "See, this is why I didn't play basketball into my 60's and 70's, that greg oden can't do the same things he did when he was in his 20's back in kindgergarden."

    There are many other reasons why this deal won't happen, but for now i'll let you dream your pipe dreams a little more.

    In Response to Re: Bynum for Chris Paul : Really? No reason I could see LA not making this trade. Only issue for Hornets is if Bynum is going to be a 20-10+ all-star or an oft-injured talent who lacks the heart Even LA was told he's a LOCK to be 22-11 from '12-'17... but will just kinda drift through '11 at 17-9, 'working his way back'... and that CP3 will be an 18-12-4-3 and Okafor a 10-10-2 the same 5 years... They HAVE to do it, even with the extra 10 million in salary

    Very good for LA. Terrible for Hornets.

    Re: Bynum for Chris Paul

    Bynum would only get traded for Dwight Howard. And Orlando is not about to trade their franchise player. Mike Brown intends on changing L.A.'s defensive system to focus on the bigs.

    If there is a serious weakness that needs addressing, it's the point guard. Since many of you hate Rondo so much, I'd like to see him get traded to the Lakers along with Big Baby. Of course, if L.A. coud rid itself of Lamar Odumb.

    Never happen!  :)

    In Response to Bynum for Chris Paul:
    Who does it? and please no 'this is not an LA board' the move be a very interesting and really affect Boston. I'd like to hear the opinion of a classy LA fan like Worthy The straight swap works w/ $. LA gets thin up front and has 3 PG's. It could also be Bynum, the b*tch, Shann Brown and Blake for Paul and Okafor. In that case whoever buys the Hornets would have a team with a measley 40 million in payroll, 3-4 1st rd picks (assuming they trade David West for a 1st rd'er in Feb) a tanked rest of this year to get into the lotto and a solid trio of Jack (28) - Ariza (26) and Bynum (24) all with nice contracts to build on at the 3 most important positions. Then move the team to Seattle and make them the Sonics:-) and LA gets a 20-10 guard and 10-10 F-C to go for unprecedented (since Boston did 8) 4-peat...

    Centers and wings win titles... point guards are generally a generic commodity...  Tony Parker and Chauncy Billups are the only what I would consider good point guards that have won titles over the last 20 years..... Michael, Scottie, Kobe, Shaq, Gasol, and Duncan are the players that have won titles over the last 20 years and on those teams the point guard was generally irrelevant.....Scottie and Michael were the two best "point guards" for the Bulls, Kobe has been the "point guard" all along but when push comes to shove those guys were the reason teams won titles......  so trading Bynum for Paul is silly...... Give me Bynum for just about anyone in the league.......the NBA is a Center / forward league... the college game is driven by guards because it takes longer for BIGs to develop but once they get to the NBA the BIGs are what makes it happen but of course I don't need to give anyone a history lesson...  so this year when and if the Bulls get to the finals it will be because of Boozer and Noah and Deng and Rose but none of it happens without Boozer and Noah.... and if Miami gets there is further exposes the myth.... or as most that play in the league would say "miff".... and they will likely play OKC that has Ibaka, Perk, and Durant and of course Westbrook....

    trading for a point guard is silly....
