    Re: DH back on the table?

    Replacing Gasol and Bynum essentially with Harrington and Howard would be the end of the Lakers.

    Gasol is arguably the most skilled big man in the NBA who can shoot, pass, rebound and defend.  And the Lakers will replace him with Harrington, a 32 year old 6'9' forward who ONLY shoots 3-pointers?  I don't understand that one and he's on the books for the next 3 seasons.

    And then you replace a dominating and still coming into his own center like Bynum with Howard who is the best center in the league WITH MAJOR FLAWS and a bad back.  Howard's major flaws (no offensive skill other than the dunk,  cannot be on the court deep in 4th quarter) make Bynum (again, still developing) as good as Howard with more upside.

    I think the Lakers will regret this deal simply because there is just no comparison in the skillsets of Gasol and Harrington.  Bynum is dominant enough that Howard is not going to come in and be any more dominant.  But Harrington will never be confused or even mentioned in the same breath as Gasol and that is where the Lakers will falter.

    The Lakers are a more dangerous, cohesive unit with Gasol and Bynum than they would ever be with Harrington and Howard.  I'm presuming Harrington would play the PF spot.

    If the Lakers make that deal, they would be killing their future.

    I hope DH goes some where soon. I agree this deal would not be good for the Lakers. How do you think AB feels hearing his name every time this comes up. I would be worried about AB going to Philly in this deal then DH going to L.A.. Philly would be a tough out with AB in a 76ers uniform.

    Orlando please end this sooner the better!

    Boston fans forget that we had a center who also couldn't shoot free throws. How'd that work out?! Oh yeah, 3-peat lol.
