John Wall or Turner to the Lakers?

I know the haters aren't going to like this, but hypothetically lets say the warriors won the 1st pick the Lakers could trade Pau or Bynum for wall or Turner. The Warriors would be a much stronger team. They don't need a PG/ OR A SG.

Lakers
Wall
Kobe
Artest
Odom
Bynum

Warriors
Curry
Ellis
Maggette
Randolph
Gasol

This trade would be Vlade for Kobe all over again.

Is this really all we have to talk about?

Who really cares? Its not going to happen and its completly unrealistic. No team would trade the number 1 pick for either one of those players, mabye both but probally not even that. How about instead of thinking about this you should be worrying about the lakers real problem and that is Kevin Durant and the exciting OKC Thunder.

The warriors would have a strong team that would be playoff bound.

Curry
Ellis
Maggette
Randolph
Gasol/ or Bynum

They would not be a better

They would not be a better team.. Infact they would be a worst team. They don't need a SF so they dont need Turner.. Maybe adding john wall might help but Derek adds that veteran leadership. You tell me, which PG can hit clutch shots over and over and over in the playoffs? And I don't mean game winners, I mean just your average in game 3's when the other team has full momentum and the crowd is cheering like crazy, then he swishes the 3... and the crowd quiets down... that's clutch, not the to end the game, but during momentum swings.

DFish would still be on the team and he can give Wall or Turner that much needed leadership. Fisher would be the backup PG, and what are you talking about, Turner is very versatile he could easily play the 1-3 in the triangle.

HA your telling me to get real

Your telling me to get real your the one who made this ridiculous thread. Ya they would have a decent team if they got Gasol or Bynum but if they made the playoffs it would be a quick exit in the first round. If you get wall or turner you could be a legit contender for a long time.

bvalliere?

When would they become this contender? Wall and Turner wouldn't fit in that great with the Warriors. The Warriors won't even make the playoffs next year if they draft Wall or Turner. Lets be realistic.

@DNYCE Phil Jackson won

@DNYCE

Phil Jackson won titles with Derek Fisher, BJ Armstrong, and Ron Harper as his PGs. His offense (the Triangle Offense) doesnt need a ball dominant PG, infact it hurts the offense because the ball has to be moved around.

Although Evan Turner is a better fit as a PG than John Wall for the Lakers offense. Turner can be used as Scottie Pippen.

Why do Lakers fan always

Why do Lakers fan always make unrealistic ideas thinking they are always gonna get better? Why would Gasol be traded for the #1 pick?

What are you talking about Pau Gasol is a top 10 player in the NBA your acting like he is a scrub. If Pau was traded to the Warriors he would be the best Center/PF in the West. Hypothethically if a team that gets the first pick already has a good point guard(Hornets, Jazz, Warriors, or even theRaptors) this is a trade that is possible.

Urealistic?

Pau for Wall is unrealistic? Raptor fan your just mad that your team doesn't have expendable parts like a Bynum or Gasol to trade for a top pick.

I can't believe Lakers fans

I can't believe Lakers fans are ready to give up on Shannon Brown already and trade Paul Gasol straight up for a rookie.

Shannon Brown is going to opt out of his contract

We might be losing him this offseason, and I only included him in the Bynum deal to make it fair, but I would keep Shannon on the Lakers. Hopefuly a team doesn't overpay for him this summer.

Here is the thing man, the

Here is the thing man, the Lakers are one of the most poised and veteran teams in the NBA. There is no way they'd trade for a rookie point guard, and they would contend next year. Phil is not going to stick around for rebuilding years and as long as Phil is in LA they aren't going to trade All-Stars for unproven players. Look at his track record, he acquires players through free agency, trades, and making the most of the draft picks he has.

In the west you have better PFs then Gasol. Nowitzki and Duncan. Top 10 player in the league? No way.

James
Bryant
Wade
Howard
Durant
Anthony
Bosh
Nowitzki
Roy
Deron Williams

I don't think any GM in the league would give up Wall or Turner for Gasol. Think about it, Gasol is going to be 30 yrs old this summer and you're giving up on a chance for a franchise changing player in Wall or Turner for Gasol? Doesn't make any sense. At best, Gasol is a second option on a good team. He was the pinnacle point for Memphis and it didn't work out there. Wall and Turner will be first options in the NBA.

Teams already have their PG

Nowitzki is not better than Gasol. Gasol is a better passer, rebounder, low post defender, and his low post offense is also better. Tim Duncan is getting up there how old is he 34? Gasol is in better shape than Duncan and he just signed his 5 year extension this season, that will give teams a franchise players for 4 years. Gasol is also better than Bosh because GASOL becomes a better player when he plays the 5 because he loves to play with his back to the basket. Gasol is a top 10 player in the world and now he has a championship on his resume, Dirk Bosh, Roy don't.

I know about Hoops...You must be sniffing them LA fumes tooo much

LeBron, Kobe, D-Wade, Chris Paul, Carmelo, Dirk, Chris Bosh, Duncan, Derrick Rose, Paul Pierce, Dwight Howard, Durant, Joe Johnson, Josh Smith, Brandon Roy, Deron Williams...the list could go on.

You need to look up your players first before talking.

Knickboy

Pau isn't a number 1 option you &$#%#&@! tard, but he is better at this point that a 19 year old PG that couldn't even lead his team to a National championship. You just don't understand basketball, Pau is one of the most versatile big men in the game. If Pau is the center on any team he is easily the 2nd best center in the NBA behind Dwight Howard assuming Yao comes back healthy, which I highly doubt.

2.Lehype
3.Chris Paul(Healthy)
4. Dwyane Wade
5.Deron Williams
6. Carmelo Anthony
7.Tim Duncan
8. Joe Johnson
9. Dwight Howard
10. Pau Gasol

Sorry, He's not even the 4th

Sorry, He's not even the 4th best C in the NBA. It's Howard, Yao, Noah and Bynum.

Your not even making sense. Explain how Gasol is a top 10 player but not a #1 option in the NBA? Makes no sense. If your gonna be that biased- Take that &$#%#&@! to a LA msg board where you and your Laker friends can all say "Yes, We agree!"

In the real world? It won't happen and NO team is stupid in dealing a player with unlimited potential in John Wall for Pau Gasol who's now overpaid and hitting the 30's so you have to question how many years are left in the knees.

You need to logoff now and just think about the crazy statements that come out your mouth

Whoa, Whoa, Whoa. They played Dallas and Phoenix and got swept both times as well as San Antonio. Let's not lie now.

Durant is 10000 times better the Pau Gasol

Also, tell me someone who is a top 10 player and NOT a #1 option?

Plus Noah is a scrappy C who not many teams have. I would take him in a heartbeat.

Gasol was 0-12 before moving to LA in playoffs games

Durant is 21 and already has 2 wins.

Gasol can be a number 1 option

Gasol would become the number 1 option if he went to the Warriors. Gasol has the complete package. And the Lakers would rather keep Bynum over Gasol because he is younger and he has potential to become a better player, but right now Gasol is a much better player than Bynum. Hello Idiot he was an allstar Bynum wasn't.

I like how your getting mad.

Why would the Warriors even look at this deal if there getting a potential superstar in John Wall if they wouldn't even get a player who could be a potential superstar back? Please- Were going by all-stars now? You really can't win this argument sir. Just logout.

Pau Gasol is too soft for my liking most times, I have a hard time saying he's a top 10 player.

Lebron, Chris Bosh, Kobe, Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Kevin Durant, Brandon Roy, D.Wade, Carmelo Anthony, and Steve Nash are 10 players better RIGHT NOW.

This is not as bad as it

This is not as bad as it sounds. Number one it is GSW and number 2 they need a big over a point guard. It would almost make Curry expendable if they took Wall and taking Turner would be like if they just kept Jamal Crawford or Stephen Jackson. Wall would help Lakers out tremendously.

I know...I didn't say

I know...I didn't say anything about Golden State drafting Wall, your scenario had them trading the pick for Gasol and you said Gasol would then be the #1 option there, I disagreed. I think... If Golden State got the #1 pick I think they would either draft Cousins or draft Wall and trade for Cousins and try to pick up a veteran bench player in the process.

The Lakers could add

The Lakers could add Biedrins to the deal to make the deal work money wise, and Im shure the Warriors would love to get his awful 9 mill a year contract of there hands.

Lakers get Wall and Biedrins

Warriors get Gasol and Shannon or Vujacic

Don't forget about our 2nd round picks

We could easily pick up a Lance Stephenson, Sylven Landesburg, or Willie Warren type player to package for Wall.

Listen, I'm not gonna call

Listen, I'm not gonna call you dumb or disrespect you but- Come on. Be real with it. You make yourself sound like a Homer and a fanboy.

When healthy, Biedrens averaged 11-11 and was a respected defender. Your'e telling me I'm giving you someone with limitless potential in John Wall.

Pau Gasol is not a top 10 player right now and if we did a draft of all NBA players- I doubt he's in the top 20. I'm telling you- The Lakers would not get John Wall unless Andrew Bynum AND picks are in the offer.

I do believe however, The Lakers could look at two potential good players in Ricky Rubio and Yi

DNYCE, You're way to biased

DNYCE, You're way to biased to the lakers,
Gasol is getting Old, a second option on a good playoff team
Wall and turner have the Potential to be Stars (or Superstars)
in the league.
Gasol a Top 10? You're making me laugh,
and saying He's better than Durant Just Proves you Know even less
Gasol isnt a Franchise player or a Second Option
You Have to Watch more Basketball other than your lakers
