The Warriors are still after Bynum

The Warriors have been linked to talks for Dwight Howard. Publicly they have stated they are willing to try to talk Howard into staying in Golden State after the season. I do not think they are really planning to do that if they can land Howard. I think they package him to LA for Bynum and Gasol.



It's clear to me that West is very, very shrewd. He's had a plan for the entire time to grab Bynum from the Lakers. I really believe that. The Lakers owner probably has strong feelings for Thompson, and I think he was drafted with that in mind as a "bonus" that no other player had for this one need. The Lakers are trying to shed salary, dumping Odum for nothing and going all out for Paul or Howard. I think they could see Thompson as a cheap future piece. They really need shooters. Their back court isn't very good.

I live in LA, and I can tell you the talk is everyone here wants to offer Gasol (too old and getting softer each minute) and Bynum (dominante for 60 games out of an 82 game season, but bad knees) for Howard (Best Center in the NBA.)

I believe the Lakers are trying to make Bynum look "dominant" early in the season to up his trade value. Bynum is kind of an immature punk. He's mentally soft. But he's a 7' center who can score on anyone when he wants to. I think West believes he's the best talent the Warriors could land.

Howard is going to LA to find is place in history as a great Laker center like Chamberlain. Book it. He won't be talked into Golden State, and the Warriors aren't trading half the team for nobody. I believe the plan is/was to trade Curry plus whomever it took minus Thompson for Howard and whomever. Then turn around and ship Howard plus Thompson (Kobe's successor) and whomever is left for Bynum and Gasol and change.

I think in the end the Warriors would have Bynum, Gasol, and a bunch of scrubs and bad contracts. And that's an improvement that future moves can be made from. The W's haven't done a thing with Curry and Ellis. Of the two, I think Ellis is the better asset, but if the Lakers demand him, then throw him in also.

This FanPost is a submission from a member of the mighty Golden State of Mind community. While we're all here to throw up that W, these words do not necessarily reflect the views of the GSoM Crew. Still, chances are the preceding post is Unstoppable Baby!
