    Something is up! Odom headed to Dallas now.

    I bet the Lakers are going after Howard instead of Paul.

    Ainge probably can't get the West deal done until Paul gets done.

    Mitch and Danny are staring down each other. These moves will determine who is the first to get to 20 Titles.

    Well if this is true. Paul could be pissed with the Lakers if they pull out. So Ainge should just try to get Paul and West and call it a day. The Knicks already signed Bibby.

    Rondo, JON, Green and #1 for West and Paul

    Paul goes to Boston
    Howard goes to LA

    You guys serious?.. I'd rather see them get Paul to be honest, no?

    I thought Howard to be the main prize????

    i think boston jumps back in for paul...and i don't think we can trade green..we just signed him going to have to wait 30 day's to trade him i think.

    all this is driving me crazy.

    Well they still have a championship team and he knows the Lakers will spend to stay competitive....

    You really think Paul and Howard fall through for the Lakers?

    Stern will never hear the end of this one.

    If Lakers trade Bynum and Gasol to Orlando, Orlando is going to have to take 72 mil, I dont think they would want to inherit that.

    They Lakers sent Pau to Spain(JK), and Howard swaps with Bynum....  they don't need to take both players right?

    This could still go down.

    All this makes Howard to Lakers MORE probably.  Orlando can take Gasol or Bynum and lots of LA assets and then move one of them.   They can take Bynum and Gasol, move Gasol to Houston and get some other players to go with Bynum (step into New Orlean's shoes).   I see Billups to Lakers or to Miami at that point.

    Doesn't matter - if we got Paul and West for Rondo, JON, 2 first round Picks, and whoever else is tradeable, kept PP, Ray, Green, and KG - we can beat ANYBODY.   Just don't see New Orleans doing that deal.

    In Response to Re: Lakers pull out of Chris Paul talks!!! : They aren't prepared for this fast action .... Way over the cap and no young talent to trade. Not much difference between KG/RA and Gasol/Bynum other than the years left on Gasols contract ... LA could toss in the PTE they got from Dallas I suppose but they still aren't getting youth. Danny has a few yoots at his disposal as well as picks. I'll take DH at his word that he doesn't want to follow the footsteps of Shaq ... It's up to Otis I guess.

    That's the only thing the makes me think it wont go down.  Stern really screwed the Lakers, man.  Wow.  I'll even admit that.

    I hope Danny is already working the phones becuase it looks like the Clippers are going to get involved now.

    Sources close to the situation tell ESPN that Clippers have emerged as "early frontrunner" to acquire CP3 now that Lakers out of running

    In Response to Re: Lakers pull out of Chris Paul talks!!! : I'd rather LA replace Odom and Bynum.... two guys who will give you 60 minutes, 30 points and 20 rebounds in the frontcourt... with Howard's 38 mins, 24 points and 12 rebounds and then nothing good replacing that other 22 minutes at the 4-5 then get Paul scoring 18, dishing 12, and turning the 18 ppg Bynum into the 26ppg Bynum. Either way... LA won't be better than the '09 team.... and they will be better than the team of crybaby quitters from rd 2's sweep last year.... but they are hardly guaranteed to be better than a handful of other contenders. just very good and having to adjust to new faces and a new coach

    They are going to be missing a PF even if they get Howard and you're right about that.  They way you broke down those numbers shows overall weakness, but he's never played with a player like Kobe before.  He could hit new strides, but you make a good argument.

    I think we can come out of this with Paul.  That is why the West trade is held up.

    To get Paul and West together could be a blockbuster trade. The question is why would the league allow that with out plenty of young talent. Do we have enough?

    Rondo, Green(Sign and trade), 2 First round picks, and get Ini involved as rumors before to send over Collison... Is that enough?

    Howard to LA would be better for the Lakers then getting Paul, imo.  No way the Celtics can offer the Hornets a better deal then they would have got from Houston/LA deal.  The commish isn't going to let Paul go without a huge, one sided deal. 

    The commish [expletive]ed Paul.  Whatever the hornets accept as a trade for Paul will be compared to the Lakers offer, if it's not as good of a deal you can bet the NBAPA will be seeking legal actions with Paul against the NBA.  Stern has messed up big time!
