so is the Lakers-Yankees a good comparison in terms of their rich dominating history and always being able to attract, lure Superstar players? or is it completely different?

He would be a great fit for the Lakers and a much better option then that overrated soft center we call Andrew Bynum.

yeah but everybody is making it out to be as if the Lakers are guaranteed to get Dwight Howard, that it is a done deal, and if Dwight Howard goes to the Lakers, i bet people still won't be saying that the Lakers buy championships

The Lakers used to make the NBA boring because they won everything. Now that we have teams like Heat and Boston its actually nor more fun to watch. Everyone goes crazy when theres a LA v MIA; LA v BOS; BOS v MIA Game

Except LA and Boston didn't even make the conference finals last year.

That torch has passed.

Would the CP3 trade have made this thread relevant again? Apparently, the NBA owners think so!

and do you think Dwight Howard will stay in Orlando or what? or do you think he will eventually join the Lakers?

I think having the constant of Kobe Bryant and Derek Fisher is why the Lakers have been relevant the last 14 years. Role players come and go, but Kobe and D. Fish were always the base of that team.

Look at the 1990s Chicago Bulls. Jordan and Pippen were always there, everybody else came and went.

Look @ OKC with Durant and Westbrook. If those two stay together, you'll probably see the Thunder making playoff runs consistently for the next 10 years. Role players like Ibaka, Harden, etc, will come and go.

What I love about the Thunder is that team was crafted with excellent drafting and shrewd trading. And they're all really young, so it's fun to watch them grow together. In today's NBA it's hard for teams to stay fully intact for years and years, but I'd love if the core of that team could stay together, including key reserves like the ones you mention. Plus, OKC has like the best HCA in the league with that wild OKC crowd( reminds me of the early 2000 Kings with Webber, Jason Williams/Bibby, Peja, etc), well-coached and the players seem content, which leads me to believe alot of the players will remain loyal to the organization.
