It looks like the Lakers are trying to be the mega team to end all teams this off-season.
Hoping to pull off a pair of blockbuster moves that would rock the NBA, the Lakers are willing to trade anyone on their roster outside of Kobe Bryant to bring Howard and Paul to Los Angeles, two sources said.
Whether the Lakers are able to make it happen remains to be seen, but with stars Pau Gasol, Andrew Bynum and Lamar Odom on the roster, they have the talent and the financial capacity to make the trades work.
The Lakers have had cursory discussions with New Orleans about Paul within the past few days. It is not clear whether they have spoken with Orlando.
So EVERYONE but Kobe is expendable? Even Lamar and Khloe? Imagine Khloe taking her talents to New Orleans or Orlando.
If the Lakers get to pull off this trade, does this make them the team to beat in the NBA? And does that make Knicks fans cry for failing to pull yet another major free agent? Sound off!
