nba says orlando didn't get anything in return. i dont know. they'll have 3-4 first round draft picks to jump start the rebuilding process.

Breaking Down the Dwight Howard Trade
Team Acquires
Lakers - Dwight Howard
Nuggets - Andre Iguodala
76ers - Andrew Bynum, Jason Richardson
Magic* - Arron Afflalo, Al Harrington, Nikola Vucevic, Moe Harkless
* Magic also will receive a protected 1st-round pick from each of the other three teams

The Lakers are going to dominant next season. It's crazy. I love the fact the Lakers kept Gasol. I can't believe Orlando got screwed so badly, they didn't even get Bynum. The 76ers got some great players.

Old legs, a chucker, foul trouble, and missed free throws. :lol:

All kidding aside, OKC is still the team to beat in the West.

Here's hoping for Payton/Malone 2.0 :D
OKC got Perk so they could compete with traditional big men...OKC still beats them in a 7 game series

Here's hoping.

Even with great players around him, Kobe still goes into chuck mode (see team USA games), and I think that's what ends up being the Lakers downfall.

I dont know...I think Nash fixes that. He'll have the ball and won't be intimidated to always feed Kobe. I see more of the big men being fed. Unless Kobe starts stealing the ball from Nash lol

I hope everyone realizes these superstars changing teams are ruining the NBA.
All the small market teams now have relatively no chance of competing and basketball is dominated by 3 or 4 teams every single year.
We will rarely, if ever get an upset team to go far in the playoffs, it's also so predictable now.

Orlando will be this years Bobcats then pray for Zeller, Noel or Muhammed.

PG Jameer -
SG Afflalo - Reddick
SF Turkoglu - Harkless
PF Davis - Nicholson
C Ayon - Vucevic

Orlando should trade like the Lakers 1st pick to Sacramento (who has Brooks, Thomas, Evans at PG) for Jimmer. Then they can have a Jameer / Jimmer combo!!!
