Happy now you big f**king baby?!
Dwight Howard Acquired By The Los Angeles Lakers From Orlando Magic In 4 Team Trade
The long-running Dwightmare of the Orlando Magic has reportedly become a dream come true for the Los Angeles Lakers.
According to a report from ESPN, the Lakers have acquired the All-Star center from the Magic as part of a four-team deal also involving the Philadelphia 76ers and the Denver Nuggets.
If the report is true and the deal is approved by the NBA, then expect to see a very happy Kobe Bryant when USA Basketball hits the floor against Argentina on Friday at the London Olympics.
Per the ESPN report, the Lakers are sending Andrew Bynum to the Philadelphia 76ers. Denver will ship Arron Afflalo and Al Harrington to Orlando and acquire Andre Iguodala from the Sixers, who are also getting Jason Richardson.
Pau Gasol is reportedly not included in the deal. So, you may see a relieved Spaniard in the semifinal matchup that takes place before the USA-Argentina tilt.
The Lakers already added two-time MVP Steve Nash earlier in the offseason. Once the latest Lakers’ trade goes through, assuming commissioner David Stern doesn’t come up with any basketball reasons why it shouldn’t, the Lakers will have a starting lineup including Kobe, Nash, Gasol, World Peace and Howard..
Wonder if the folks that hated on Lebron James for creating an all-star team in Miami will have as much hate for the Lakers??
