I will try to make this reasonable as well as have some sense.
First off the Lakers aren't getting rid of Andrew Bynum, he is a true center and 7' tall, he compliments Pau Gasol perfectly. Bynum also allows Pau to play the power forward where he is more comfortable playing. Chris Bosh coming to LA, would make Pau play the center, while still good, he is not comfortable playing the 5.
Also, Andrew Bynum hasn't even hit his prime yet, Kobe is still in his (even if he is declining, his decline is better than most guys primes), and Gasol is still in his prime.
Chris Bosh is a very good player, but him and Pau will simply have trouble co-existing because there styles of play aren't different like Pau's and Bynum's.
I could really care less how many negatives I am given. I was gone for a few days to see a thread about this that is beyond ridiculous. May the reasonable come here.
The Lakers don't care about Bosh.
Agreed, they are focusing on a championship.
The Lakers don't need him. There are plenty of other teams that could use him, give him alot of money, and he wouldn't have to settle for being a 3rd option.
I was really getting tired of these ridiculous Bosh to LA for Bynum rumors. As well as the ridiculous Bosh and DeRozan to LA for Bynum and SHANNON BROWN(???) rumors.
bosh doesn't want to go to la either. he wants to be the go to guy on his team.
lakers don't want bosh. they easily have the best frontcourt in the league with odom, bynam and gasol. they are more focused on getting a quality pg for cheap. d.fish isn't getting any younger.
Lol, how did I know this thread was started by a hopeful Knicks fan? Give it up bro Bosh isn't going to New York. The Lakers can careless about Bynum
Fisher or Farmar/ Shved or Torrance/Bouldin or Randle
Artest/Derozan/Walton(if he isn't trade to the TWolves for a second round pick)
Gasol/Mbenga/Omar Samhan or Brian Zoubek
Next year we will draft Kemba Walker or Renardo Sidney
Quick question: What is the basis for all this Bosh to the Lakers talk?
OMFG YOU GUYS.... That guy dnyce created a riot on this forum by posting those stupid posts about bosh to lakers trade... wtf.... Stop with all those nonsense, cause bosh is going to the team in which he will be no1 option and cornerstone of franchise....
Bosh to LA is completely illogical. Bynum fits perfect and bosh doesn't. Lakers fans just like to think of adding as many big names as possible to try to intimidate people. Bosh wants to be the number one option and if not the number one for the entire team AT LEAST the number one as a big. Gasol being there makes that not possible. IMO bosh goes to new York. It would give him the money he's looking for as well as a playing style he can flourish in while averaging some really good numbers. Besides bosh is apparently caught up in what everyone thinks bases off of his facebook fiasco. If bosh went to the knocks I wouldn't mind seeing Joe Johnson go there. I think they'd compliment each other really well. They wouldn't get past the semifinals in the playoffs unless they got a true center (which won't happen since d'antoni is coach) That played legit defense but they would give new York who has been thirsty for basketball success for some time, some temporary relief for 4-5 years. They'd become the new atlanta hawks and get swept every semifinals.

I will be sure to rub it in when this trade happens
