i'm am NOT a fan of Lamar Odom but he looks good coming off the bench. He's a good fit right there (6th man) for this years Laker team.
Lakers should dumb what they can and get Iverson, A-I can get Kobe the ball, and handle the ball very well... he can also score 20+ a night with or without Kobe.. Rookie of the year, All Star MVP, League MVP, plays hard.. Iverson will be out of Denver almost immediately...
In any event, there are plenty of players around the league that would improve the lakers numbers in a trade for Lamar Odom, Vince wouldn't be one of them though- here's why...
Half Man Half Amazing is just that, he's only half of a man.. he shoots too much, bricks too much, plays with no emotion, too slow, no defense. The Lakers can't get him the ball unless he plays with the 2nd team, therefore he won't be Half Amazing because he has no one to dish him the ball on the fast break or back door alley oop.
Caron Butler, Chris Bosh, Caremello Anthony just to name a few...
Caron Butler, Chris Bosh, and Carmello Anthony score more than Odom,
Play more minutes than Odom
Shoots way better free throws than Odom
Butler shoots the 3 better than Odom
More steals than Odom
And more assist than Odom
Odom tends to make too many stupid mistakes, always has.. and isn't getting any better. This Laker team is only one good player from a world Championship, be it a forward, guard, or what have you. but don't sleep on trevor Ariza, his defense, excitement, and slashing is just what the doctor ordered.
