Caught in the Web: Lakers trade talk and Lakers-Celtics matchup

59319728--The Times' Mike Bresnahan and Broderick Turner quote a Lakers official who says a four-player deal involving the Andrew Bynum and Ron Artest and the Nuggets' Carmelo Anthony and Al Harrington was never discussed.

--Turner details how the Lakers will try to get payback on the Celtics.

--The Boston Globe's Julian Benbow looks at the Celtics' injury-plagued lineup.

--The Orange County Register's Janis Carr calls Derek Fisher one of the NBA's good guys.

--The Boston Herald's Dan Duggan sizes up the importance of the Lakers-Celtics game from the Lakers' perspective.

--ESPN Boston's Chris Forsberg wonders if Celtics guard Ray Allen purposely attempted only two field goals against Charlotte so he could break Reggie Miller's three-point scoring record against the Lakers in front of Miller as a TNT analyst.

--Fox Sports Florida's Sam Gardner wonders if Dwight Howard would leave Orlando for the Lakers.

--ESPN Los Angeles' Brian Kamenetzky asks readers if it's acceptable for the Lakers to sacrifice some of their ability to win a title this season if it meant helping secure the future?

--ESPN Los Angeles' Dave McMenamin highlights Andrew Bynum's reaction over the recent trade reports.

--The Orange County Register's Jeff Miller argues the Lakers shouldn't pursue Anthony.

--Hoops World's Eric Pincus believes the Lakers should get Anthony, but doesn't believe they will. 

--Sports Illustrated's Britt Robson argues Lakers forward Ron Artest should drive more to the basket.

--Fox Sports West's Matt "Money" Smith argues Melo wouldn't be a good fit for the Lakers, but believes the trade rumors are improving his stock.

--Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears talks with Anthony, who said he might actually sign an extension with the Nuggets.

--The Daily Breeze's Elliott Teaford has more on the Melo Drama.

--Sports Illustrated's Ian Thomsen answers a question from Artest (supposedly).

--Lakers.com's Mike Trudell notices the team handled the trade talk fairly well during Wednesday's practice.

--The Boston Globe's Gary Washburn highlights Jackson's little dig at Allen on surpassing Miller's three-point record.

--Pro Basketball Talk's Ira Winderman argues the Lakers shouldn't trade Bynum because they'll need him to secure Dwight Howard

--Silver Screen and Roll's wondahbap breaks down Lamar Odom's shot attempts.

--Forum Blue and Gold's Darius Soriano notices a few trends in the Lakers' lineup combinations.

Tweet of the Day:"What's up everybody! This is Magic and I'm officially on Twitter!" -- MagicJohnson (Former Laker Magic Johnson)

Reader Comment of the Day:"This year the Celtics will have HCA and Perkins, add to that the Oneal's and a better overall bench the Lakers look to be in trouble unless Bynum turns into the second coming of a latter day Wilt. Tomorrow game will be an intriguing game on many levels A Laker loss adds another game to the "Practice Season" excuse makers. Realistic fans might find this a troubling trend. A win with an agressive Bynum and Artest raises deeper questions about motivation and work ethic. by the way, did anyone find it curious that Ray Allen took only two 3 point attempts last game. Anyone think he was stalling to break the record at home against the Lakers (and especially Kobe)?" -- Troll Man

The tension is mounting… Boston on Today... It will be a slug fest… I think Ron is going to bring it
against Paul, Lamar is going to bring it against the boards, Pau is going to score on Garnet without
mercy, Drew will show them who is the bigger team, Fish will hit a key three towards the end, & we will see the Mamba strike! (and Big Baby will start crying… ;-) Go Lakers! I am a Lakerholic. @Lakerholic
*________________________________________________________________________*
In my mind's eye, the Lakers and Celtics are rushing towards each other in the fashion that they have
in years past. Matching each other, blow-for-blow, against all-comers until the time to meet arrives.
They are looking squarely in the others direction while they simultaneously brush aside any with the
misguided notion that they are contenders. It is the same as how Bruce Lee will casually vanquish all
OF the Big Boss' henchmen on his way to the real dance. It is about Boston. It has always been about
Boston. Boston is the only franchise that has earned our RESPECT...and our DERISION. @ FEARLESS

Laker Land: where all that is possible and even a lot of what is impossible happens on a daily basis.
History repeats to the same patterns, but evolving from them to a more perfected reality, round after
round. So we are the same: just better than last time. And we are getting better with every step more
we take within the future. It's a great life to be a Lakers Fan. Sorry others: you just can't compete. Still
wearing my Purple & Gold Pride.Not because I will think of what others are doing, which I don't
care for, but only because I am well aware and assured of what WE ARE CAPABLE OF.

Phil knows he's got a Ferrari this year. He's just got it purring along. Trying a few things in 2nd & 3rd
gear. Knows he's got several more gears, but sees no need to even try them now. Hasn't even floored
it yet when the NBA cops aren't looking, but knows he can lay a patch of smoke & rubber a block
long if he ever needs it. But yeah, Sonny Belfast, Phil knows (and YOU know) he may not even need
to floor it this year at all. But just for the heck of it, I think he will...on Christmas day. @CORNERJ

Kobe can win THROUGH his team mates. He can win WITH his team mates. He can win
DEFERRING to his team mates. He can win IN SPITE OF his team mates. He can win INSTEAD
of his team mates. He can even win BY HIMSELF (just ask Dallas & Toronto). Champions are
forged in the 4th QUARTER. Franchises are defined in the 4th QUARTER. Dynasties are cemented
in the 4th QUARTER. Sit back & watch PJ, Kobe & Fish orchestrate this symphony we call Lakers
basketball to another parade down Figueroa Blvd.@ FEARLESS

Yes it does DBDH, YES IT DOES!!!!! Preach Brother, Preach!!!

TrollMan!

The PSP is proud and envious of you at the same time. The PSP thought that 'trolls' do not get the RCOTD award! You my friend have gone down in la times laker blog history as First Troll Winner of RCOTD; this is legendary stuff.

Can't believe Magic went and got on twitter. Seriously people, WHAT IS TWITTER? It's amazing how society is getting dumber by the day. The PSP wish though that the PSP came up with that idea; the PSP would be swimming in millions instead of hundreds of thousands. On to another session of brainstorming then, maybe this monetizing content thing has serious potential.

As for tonight's game, the PSP think the Lakers better get their act together and deliver a good ass whipping to the green goblins. The PSP is still waiting on practiceseason888 to appear and tell us that this game is also 'meaningless', unless of course we win the game. The PSP is starting to think that the PSP does not know the right meaning of the word 'meaningless'.

I LOVE THE SMELL OF ROLL CALL IN THE MORNING...

Especially when Boston Cream Pie is on the menu...

LEWSTRS Checking in for Game Day Roll Call Baybee!!!

Even it's one of the 82 practice game...I want a win tonight...even though this game won't matter if we meet again in the playoffs...It would be a win to end all this trade talk silliness...

So let's hope we play our A game tonight...and most importantly...no injuries to both teams...I want Doc Rivers to once and for all shut up about his 'starting 5' excuse...

Lakers Dynasty - The Next Generation...

#17 Coming Up!!!

I love the smell of troll call in the morning.

Okay, LOL... sorry... seriously though, tonight is to show what we're made of.

Bottom line.


@LROB... Thanks for the link. I love that song and have not thought of it for year. For some reason, I never connected it to my hatred of everything else Boston, including the Celtics, Red Sox, and Patriots. Come to think of it, I even liked the band Boston. Of course, now that you have made the connection to me, I’m debating whether I want to add the song to my iPhone or not. LOL.
.........................
@PSP... “Unfortunately it looks like we wont be getting our Practice Season888 vs BynumTom mega fight; i had booked front row seats too, oy vey :-( .” LOL. Fortunately, I have been too busy fending off LRob and the masses to take on a powerhouse like KobeMVP888 so you will have to be satisfied with the undercard. It’s now time to focus on the Green Meanies, anyway.

THEN LET THE BEAST BE UNLEASHED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Dude...Most of you Lakerholic know the ODDS of the Lakers going into Bean town to beat down the C's are SLIM at best. Although the game doesn't mean much, it's a gauge to where their game has been elevated from last month SPANKING.

I know the KOOL AID is being passed around today, comments are being pulled from the crack of your BUTTS. "we got this", "the swagger is back" HOPING that the Lake Show actually shows UP.

Praying Kobe don't go 1 on 5, that Fish has his partials in place,(needing a last bite from this toothless dog) and that Pau don't ROLL OVER for KG, that Drew is MOTIVATED from the trade talks. So many questions, so few ANSWERS.

It should be a FUN game to watch for entertainment VALUE, nothing MORE it's not the PLAYOFFS, it's still PRACTICE SEASON. So please don't meltdown after the BEAT DOWN, it just your EGO, it'll HEAL.

Congrats to the TROLLMAN -Anyone think he was stalling to break the record at home against the Lakers (and especially Kobe)?" --

Lakerholics enjoy the PARTY, It'll be UGLY.

BynumTom!

The PSP say you sound like Floyd Mayweather right now LOL; actually wait, that would make practiceseason888 Manny and the PSP say hell no to that, he aint no Manny! Anyway you are right, lets beat the hell outta the Greanie Meanies tonight, then we'll get back to the more important issues.

@ChicNStu - Very good. Phillippe Wynne hooking up with Funkadelic....classic. Now lets get Knee Deep in Boston...


@Troll Man - Congrats on RCOTD. I thought the same thing about Ray Ray.


@LakerTom - Go ahead and add it...its a classic...and by the way at the end of the song he asked her to come to LA instead of Boston...lol.

FYI...I don't do undercards...either main bouts or nothing!

DBDH,

Ehh the PSP inquire because you had MT as part of your signature a few threads back. Carry on sir, no warnings and no tickets!

Agree! Something tells me that #17 Bynum will have something to tell about title #17. Let's keep the faith!

I expect a competitive game but I also expect a hungry Lakers team, after all the trade talk and how this team only wins against weaker teams.
That's bull because that's disrespecting the other NBA teams. Memphis won in OKC and the Bobcats won against Boston. Every team has value.

Let's show some heart! And dominate the rebounds battle!

This is an important time for Bynum to show what he's made of. If he flops, hopefully something will materialize out of the Rumor of Bynum for Carmelo.

Big Game for Bynum.... if the lakers loose, the organization is going to need to make a move or hope that the celtics roster gets plagued with injuries. Their simply to big AND DEEP! They match up very VERY well with the lakers.

Good morning brothers and sisters of Laker Nation.

I'm in Ohio right now.

I have access to the Lucky Barstool. I'll make sure it's working its magic tonight.

What do we play for? RINGS!!!

Lakers Today... Lakers Tomorrow... Lakers Forever.

GO LAKERS!!!!

Access to Lucky Barstool? ACCESS TO LUCKY BARSTOOL???
AW HELL...WE GOT THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you Agent Jon K....Carry On!!!

Good morning team! Finally GAME DAY~!!!

And yes, I totally believe Ray Allen only attempted a couple 3's so he could break the record against the Lakers, on national tv and in front of Reggie. I wouldn't be surprised if TNT asked the greenies to do that.

I am totally expecting Doc to call the first play for an Allen 3.

Oh please Laker defense be on full power display tonight. Ron - please bring it. KB24 - all defensive team stalwart! AB17 and Pau - hands up! Fish - bring your under the radar defensive prowess - we need it tonight!

And a W for the purple and gold would be a welcome sight as well!

Cheers all! PLG

Jon K - just make sure they don't suck you back into staying in OH!

JR

PSP - It was in reference to someone's claim that I was he, or he was I, or I were him, or he were I, or he was me, or I was him.

It was in jest for you to ingest.

PEACE!

@PsychedLakerGirl, Fear not Psyched, as Justa says...WE GOT THIS!!!!!! Besides Jon K. has the Lucky Stool and if and only if things get a little close then Mamba24 will break out...The Purple and Gold Thong!!!!! LMAO!!!!!!!!!! Carry On!

Don't count your chickens. The Celtics are only 3 games ahead of the Lakers in the loss column, and after tonight it will be only 2 games.

PSP - It was in reference to someone's claim that I was he, or he was I, or I were him, or he were I, or he was me, or I was him. It was in jest for you to ingest. PEACE! DBDH!

THE SWAGGER, THE SWAGGER!!! IT'S CONTAGIOUS LAKER NATION!!!

New York Knicks still firmly believe that Carmelo Anthony will suit up for them this season or next. In fact, according to a source close to the pursuit, the Knicks still firmly believe that the hiring of Anthony will lead to the hiring of Chris Paul. "Go back to the wedding toast," the source said. ESPN.com


"Go back to the wedding toast," the source said

hmmm, non sequitur

Only ESPN would take something as innocent as a wedding toast and turn into nonsensical jabbering. Cough. Chris Sheridan {tool}. People make strange wedding toasts all the time. My Cousin married his high school sweetheart a couple years ago, my other cousin (best man, brother) pledged his affirmation that the Maple Leafs will win the Stanley Cup.

Does anyone seem the juxtaposition between what Chris Paul said and what my cousin said?

It's very similar, when liquid courage is flowing, the brain stops processing and starts streamlining everything else. People make drunken stupid toasts all the time.

@Mark Medina- well put Mark. They don't make stuff up, sometimes though, as outsiders, we see that they push the envelope between perception and reality. And being we live in a fishbowl of media coverage, social networking, excetera, the space between perception and reality is the truth and usually nowadays, the truth takes a backseat to opinions. ESPN doesn't make things up, but they are guilty of hamming it up to death on these sorts of things. Good, bad or indifferent.

@Mark Medina- Hey Mark, I know you responded already to this post. I'm not trying re-hash the conversation. I just thought if had a good example of what I was talking about, it wouldn't cause any confusion on my part in explaining what I meant.

ESPN doesn't make things up, so, they shouldn't really expect to be reputable source of information if their source is someone who gave a half-drunk wedding toast. Who knows what was said before? What did he really mean? It's a joyous occassion a wedding, even ESPN has to put an opinion of ambience around friends kidding around. Joke.

>>>A win with an agressive Bynum and Artest raises deeper questions about
>>>motivation and work ethic.

No... perhaps it raises a "non dedication to winning every regular season game for the fans who paid to see it" question.

But it also brings some credence to Phil's long time philosophy that individual regular season games aren't as important. Phil has never really stressed going for the best record in the NBA over staying healthy and slowly rounding into form so that you're ready by the playoffs.

>>>>.I want Doc Rivers to once and for all shut up about his 'starting 5' excuse...


You're too late. Paul Pierce already rolled out the wheelchair last night, sicking out of practice.

So if they lose, that will be Doc's excuse.

LongtimeLakerFan...You are on FIREEEEE!!!!!! LMAO!!!!!

Very important game tonight. It won't be a complete sign of doom if the Celtics sweep the Lakers during the regular season (Orlando swept them in 2008-09 before swooning in the finals), but it would right the Lakers listing ship to have a road win vs the best team in the East.

And if the Lakers lose, then we'll have a week or more of trolls overrunning the blog and pooping out their little braggadoccio turd posts.

And if the Lakers win, the few trolls who show up will say that it's all because 3 of their centers are out and wait until the finals, we'll show you.

And despite all my posts in favor of the Bynum for Carmello trade, I will say this:

I hope Jim Buss is right. I would gladly admit how wrong I am and what a jackass I was for even suggesting trading Bynum for Carmelo if Bynum ever plays up to the level that the Lakers expect him to reach. I would love to have the power duo of Bynum and Gasol propel the Lakers to 3 or 4 more titles before they retire.

An All-Star 7 foot center is a much more valuable commodity than an All-Star small forward.

Go Lakers, but Boston doesn't suck.
Why lie?

>>>And when you LOSE, what will your excuse BE?

Hey troll.

If the Lakers lose, we won't offer excuses. Phil won't go whining to the press about missing this guy or that guy. The proper response is that the Celtics would have been the better team on that night.

It's only your whiny-ass coach who makes excuses when he gets beaten. He's to deluded to accept that his team wasn't the best team when it counted.

deal with it.

Time to bring out the big guns, lucky barstools, and statement games from players not wanting to be traded from the world champs...GO LAKERS !

@Justanothermambafan, see I told you, when you hurt The Mamba Clan hurts. When Justanothermambafan catches a cold, mamba24 catches the Flu.
LMAO!!!!! Justa saying!!!!

LongTimeLakerFan,

To be fair, when we lose some fans do offer up excuses. The PSP would like to know what you think about the Practice Season theory?

Thanks
PSP Solutions Architect

Early signs to watch for:

I have noticed that in these big games, Kobe tends to press too much initially and how Kobe goes is how this team goes. Nobody else seems to have the 'whatever' to pick up the slack. So, if when Kobe starts shooting he shoots well, that always is a good sign that the rest of the team will be more inclined to produce points/rebounds/tenacity. If he does not, then the tendancy of this team is to wilt (and not in the good way - WILT C.)

Trying to figure out which Lakers/Mamba t-shirt/hat still have any luck left in them for tonight! Greek take-out, and the wife with her rooting hat on and we have done all we can do for our vibe!

Hobbitmage,

I'll take a few prime seasons of Kareem, Shaq, Wilt, Hakeem or Russell over a few seasons of Bird, Dr J, Elgin, Havlicek or Pippen any day.

You could point out that Bynum is no Kareem/Shaq/etc., but I'd counter that Carmelo is no Bird/Elgin/etc.

The thing is, it's a lot easier to find a really good SF than it is to find a halfway decent C (let alone really good).

Roll Call ... checking in!!!

I know the players think tonight is important and many fans are treating it as do or die, but today is February 10th and the playoffs start in mid-April. Where were the Packers at this approximate point in the season? 7-4 with losses to 2 teams that didn't make the playoffs and losses to teams that finished ahead of them in the standings. The ONLY win of ANY note was against the Kevin Kolb led Eagles in Week 1 of the season.

OK, this isn't the NFL, but when you perch yourself as high as I do with binoculars so I can see the big picture when I'm not wearing them, but zoom in when I think I need to, the comparisons and analogies to all professional team sports can be made. DEFENSE! The Packers continued to get better, just like the SF Giants did. It's all about improvement and peaking at the right time and, especially in the case of the NBA where there are only 5 guys on the court for your team at all times, it is also all about HEALTH!

The Celtics are banged up and Paul Pierce had the flu yesterday. Yes, their most important bigs will be on the floor ... KG, Perkins and Big Baby ... but Pierce is without a decent back up tonight. The Lakers have played great fourth quarter DEFENSE the last 3 games, including the Spurs game. If they continue that tonight, we should win. If we win, we've accomplished zip. If we lose, we can still finish the road trip with an excellent record, the real goal of this trip.

1-2-3 RING! #17 coming up STRONG!!

P.S.- As a side note I was listening to Colin Cowherd this morning and he was interviewing Chris Forsberg, the journalist who covers the Chowds for BSPN Boston. Forsberg said that the near unanimous consensus back there was to help facilitate a Bynum for 'Melo deal. THAT is how highly a sophisticated NBA fan base thinks of Bynum and how much they are aware that matching up with Bynum is their biggest problem when they face the Lakers. To me, that says a LOT!

It's actually rather un-Ohio-like right now. Sunny and clear. I was kind of hoping for blizzards, gray and ice storms to remind me of how awesome Southern California is. Instead I got sunshine reflecting off snowy fields. Clearly Ohio is trying to trick me.

This will be win #1oo for the Lucky Barstool tonight.

I want to see the Lakers play like, well... THE LAKERS crush the Green Slime and the put all this trade talk to rest.

What do we play for? RINGS!!!

I'm still down for the Carmelo trade. But what I would like to see is an Andrew Bynum with a chip on his shoulder. I want to see Bynum eat up Perkins and dominate the paint. I want to see Bynum go hard for 30 minutes at least. I also want to see Bynum in the game during crunch time. I would like to see Bynum prove his worth.

Otherwise, why won't we trade him for a great one in Carmelo?

Go Lakers!

Really, bro, Really?

Do you not realize this is a Lakers blog and we're supposed to believe in our team chances of winning any game? Talk about hittin' the pipe... you must be hittin it pretty hard yourself to not know that the Lakers have both the talent and the ability to beat Boston in Boston whether they do or not.

@justa
this one's for you, "Just Feel Better:"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=icD8mBBeIwU

I'm still conflicted about all of this trade talk. I think a big game from Drew will cure it.

Ray-Ray can get the three point record for all I care- we'll take the win and the RINGS this year!

Is it 5pm yet?

Bynum plays big tonight.
Artest plays good defense and makes some open shots.
Kobe doesn't press.
Gasol plays tough.
Fisher only shoots when he is absolutely open.
The bench shows up.
That’s all NBA4ever ask for!
Practice season is over!

...and this one is for our team, and tonight's game:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vsOmvSlPuys

had bynum not been plagued by injuries, he would (would) have been yet another great acquisition. Sure... who doesn't want two 7 footers in the front? BUT... we can't seem to keep 1 of the 2 seven footers we have their all the time. Yes, an All star 7 footer is better than a small forward all start... BUT... we can't seem to keep one of our 7 footers in the line up long enough to become one. That then raises the question... why can't Buss count his looses and jump on this Rumor? Our educational system teaches History for a reason... To Learn From It. Bynum has yet to go through a whole season without an injury. And we almost lost him at the end of last season.
