Great trade for Lakers, great

Great trade for Lakers, great trade for Sixers, great trade for Nuggets.... We all knew Orlando was going to get a bad deal for Dwight, but they got a horrible deal for Dwight. I can't believe after all this mess that THIS was the package they were waiting to get.

Nuggets got an All Star for

Nuggets got an All Star for not a huge price so they could be quite happy too.

Again why didn't Orlando look to do a around draft day time with the Lakers, they could have got the picks that the Lakers sent to Phoenix for Steve Nash and maybe Bynum also or if Cleveland had got Bynum all those picks Cleveland packaged to Dallas.

Well, to be honest... It's

Well, to be honest... It's too early right now to determine the winners.

Dwight Howard could decide not to re-sign with the Lakers, though he seems like the perfect fit for Hollywood. As much as I love Andrew Bynum going to the 76ers, he could decide (though it's doubtful he'll pass up on the team that has his bird rights) to not re-sign. And if Bynum doesn't re-sign, they'd end up being bigger losers than the Magic. They'll have given up Iguodala and three first round picks for Bynum.

As of right now, you have to go with the Nuggets. They got a very good two way player in Andre Iguodala, while cutting salary at the same time.

The Lakers did well but after

The Lakers did well but after getting Nash they were already a top 3 team, and they still are after improving defensively.
The Nuggets now are the team no one wants to face in the first round. They are close to a top 10 team right now. They took a jump up.

I created it because

I didn't see a post that had a breakdown of what each team got. They were always about just one team in the trade. Really didn't think it was that repetitive, but whatever. sorry everyone.

The Magic should've taken the

The Magic should've taken the Rocket's deal.. For real. I'm sure a good majority of you guys have seen what the Rockets offered the Magic for Howard and it far surpassed what they got in return from this trade.

Oh well, I'm just glad it's over. The winners are everyone but the Magic and the Lakers. Only reason that the Lakers aren't winners is because we don't know if Dwight will walk after this year or not. If he helps them win a championship? Then they are winners no matter the decision he makes.

its easy to sit back and say

its easy to sit back and say Orlando shouldve done this and that...but bottom line is we dont know the deals that were on the table...i trust their GM got the best deal they could possibly get, besides the Nets deal which isnt his fault seeing Otis Smith was the GM at the time...

they cleared SOME salary, got some picks, and a couple young prospects...not great, but i wouldnt say its a disaster...obviously its cleaning house time and hopefully they get Shabazz or Noel

This just in:

Dwight Howard had back surgery! Maybe everyone else thinks it's just a minor thing, but back surgery is a Big Red Flag! IF he comes back healthy, it's great for the Lakers. If he has back problems for the rest of his career, it's a great trade for the Magic, just to get something for him.

Philly makes out well in the Bynum for Iggy part of the deal. Denver...made some moves.

bad organization

The Magic should have traded Howard to the Nets for their package of Lopez, Brooks, Hump, 4 first round picks & cap relief ( Nets were going to take at least 3 bad contracts). But Orlando did not want to appease Howard at the time .... so they give him up for crap a month later. I find it hard to believe they thought their was a better package out there when they rejected the Net deal. I'm sure they listened to trade proposals for almost a year. Hennigan has stated that he didn't want to be saddled with Lopez's contract for 5 years ? A 24 yr old legit 7 footer who can score 20+ a night . I guess Hennigan needs the cap space because all the top tier free agents will be lining up around the building to sign with the Magic !!

I honestly would rather have

I honestly would rather have what Cleveland got for Lebron. 2 firsts from miami and didn't have to take al harringtons awful contract or afflalos contract back. Afflalo and Harrington will keep them from being a bottom 5 team which is a BAD thing. Also, if a team like the Jazz oe Celtics or Hawks or a middling team who thought with Dwight for the rest of the year they could have won a championship in 2013, I bet they'd give a lot for Dwight Howard. This was a miserable deal for the magic.

This trade was terrible for

This trade was terrible for Orl.

Orl won't be bad enough to snag a top 5 pick and they won't be good enough to compete in the playoffs. All the picks they recieved are really late 1st rounders or 2nd's.

The Magic should have taken the Nets deal...or Houstons and started the rebuild properly. Its what the Nuggets did with Melo and thats turned out pretty well. The young guys the Magic did get have potential, but nothing like what the other 2 deals would have afforded them.

The Lakers, the Lakers... again they pulled off a lopsided deal. They turned Kwame into Paul Gasol and then turned Bynum into Howard. Howard entering the Prime of his career. The Lakers starting 5 of Nash, Kobe, MWP, Gasol and Howard is probably the best starting lineup of the last 10-15 years.

Denver gets Iggy and they only gave up Harrington (who wasn't part of their plans at all and his contract sucks) and Afflalo who is decent but was just resigned last year. This is the second player the Nuggets resign (Nene) and jettison the same season. Clearly the Nuggets got better here but they still need a closer.

Philly adds a high quality part In Bynum. Bynum is a C who gets you a plus at his position almost every night out. Hopefully he resigns with Philly. I like Philly's young core. They are rebuilding really well, but I'm not sure their players will have the talent to compete with a team like the Thunder.

Seems like Orlando finally

Seems like Orlando finally pulled the trigger too early but maybe they got sick of all the trade talks who knows.

Should've waited and traded him to Brooklyn then again he is out of the conference at least.

Good move for 76ers getting Bynum he should stay he's from NJ and they have a solid young team.

Man Lakers salary is crazy now especially with the new luxury tax.

how is the Cleveland dead better?

Cleveland got 2 draftpicks that are garunteed to be late round picks. They were not able to offload any contracts or anything. The magic got three protected draft picks, they got rid of a contract they did not want anymore, they got a young player to develop, AND they got two players who will be sought after at the trade deadline because of their valuable contracts(both afflalo and harrington are better than what they are getting paid and if you dont agree w/ me about harrington, remember that this is the last year his contract is garunteed)... they could turn Dwight into five 1st rounders plus a young athletic wing w/ upside and most importantly they dont have to deal with Dan Fegan anymore.

Please, I am waiting... tell me how this deal is worse than what cleveland got?
