A recent rumor from the NBA is that the Lakers are looking to trade young center Andrew Bynum to Toronto in exchange for All-Star power forward Chris Bosh. Obviously this is only a rumor but it is certainly worth investigating to see just what the Lakers would be gaining, and losing if some sort of deal was to go down.

In case you have been living on the moon the past three years, there is a fairly impressive free agent class about to hit the market this upcoming offseason, and Toronto’s Bosh is on this list. There have been all sorts of rumors for the past fifteen months regarding Bosh teaming up with various superstars around the league, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James are just a couple of the examples, to create a monstrous duo that could make that team an instant title contender. Even if Toronto offers Bosh a maximum deal it is very possible that he does choose to play somewhere else where he has a better chance at winning.

    While it would be impressive to get a player of that caliber, I wouldn’t trade away the team’s future to do so. Ask Jerry to open his checkbook when the season’s over, as he has done in the past….

    advantages- Getting bosh would spread the floor on offense considering he could do damage at 15 feet. Your getting another Allstar that is about to hit his prime.

    Disadvantages- Getting bosh would mean Pau would have to move to center, and In the near future, it would be tough for the Lakers to guard teams with Massive bodies down low. i.e. Boston-Perkins, Magic-Howard, Cleveland- Shaq. Though Pau is a good defensive player and has won a championship playing the 5, he does his best damage playing at the 4. Second disadvantage is that Bosh just doesnt play Defense. He gets rebounds, but thats because hes his team designated guy Down on the block. You can never have too much offense, but defense is also vital.

    Bynum is not quite there yet in regards to his defensive intensity, and has yet to master the art of defending the pick and roll, which is why smaller quicker guards wreak havoc when they play the lakers. I.e. Tony parker getting layups like a knife through butter, and Aarron Brooks running circles around the lakers in the ’09 playoffs.

    AB > CB
    I like the kid.

    This senario seems better.
    What about LBJ > AB? lol k.. that dosent make sense. But will be fun to see no. 1 kobe playing with no. 2 LBJ in a same team. (I can dream)

    Let’s say AB goes to a sucky team in the east… He WILL be that man! “All STAR” Starting Center.
    he will get soo many touches, his stats will pass CB!
    What AB does with kobe & Pau… he is doing a great job!
    I like the kid… he will improve. Keep him for the long run.
