Lakers Finally Get Howard

Lakers will receive Howard, the Denver Nuggets will acquire Andre Iguodala, the 76ers will receive Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson, and the Magic will get Arron Afflalo, Al Harrington, Nikola Vucevic and one protected future first-round pick from each of the three teams.

The Lakers also will acquire Earl Clark and Chris Duhon, a source told ESPN The Magazine's Chris Broussard. Draft picks the Magic will receive are the Nuggets' (2014), 76ers' (2015) and Lakers' (2017).

In addition, the Magic will be getting other pieces, including 76ers first-round draft pick Moe Harkless,


I'm glad the Lakers only gave up Bynum. Can't wait to watch next season and see the Lakers destroy teams!

Lakers are slow and old, and will be slow off the dribble. They will win a lot of games but not a championship.

Blake 32
Gasol 32
Peace, lol 32
Kobe 33
Jamison 36
Nash 38

They are going to need a lot of trainers,

They are really old though, they are not in their prime anymore and age will kill you over you a season. Also speed kills ......they have none. Very one dimensional team, but that's why we play the season.

Nash had one of his best season last year and he played with scrubs. I can't wait to see how much easier Nash makes the game for Kobe, Gasol, and Howard. We have speed w/ Howard and his defense.

76ers are gna be a very nice young team for the future!

Don't you say that every year. He he

Dream team #3 looks good but as Gramps said they have some age to them. I was surprised the old farts Boston made a another run last year. I can see Kobe yelling at Howard during the playoffs for choking on the foul line.

I don't think people are realizing how much of a difference Nash is going to make.

Not a Nash at 38 with all this mileage on him. The Knicks tried that with Baron Davis and now are going to try it with Jason Kidd. It equals fail. You can not beat Father Time, he always gets you in the end. They will win a lot of games in the season for sure, but it will catch up to them in the playoffs. I just don't see it, but you have to play the season so I wish them luck.

If you are compairing Nash to Baron Davis you obviously know nothing. Last season Nash had one of his best seasons.

Not comparing talent, comparing teams thinking they will catch lightning in a bottle with an old player. Like I said no one beats Father Time. It catches up with you sooner or later. The later could be this year, one never knows. He will be 39 in February,,,,it's a long season and he is long in the tooth. I wish him good luck, he has always been a class act. We will see what happens at playoff time and if he has anything left in the tank.
