    It's amazing how little these guys know really about pick swapping. We could come out big winners in a year.

    Hah, you wait to see if Sessions can feed their bigs--he will have two bigs that can actually catch the ball AND finish for the first time in his career. And Sessions is shooting 41.9% on threes this year. And Ramon is great at getting to the line--the Lakers needed someone who can get to the rim in the worst way. The kid has improved and is going to make them much better.

    National writers seem to be so stupid. True fans of their cities teams know 1000000x more about their teams' situations than the national guys do.

    The right to swap picks is very nice. Like many have said... you never know. If Kobe, Bynum, or Gasol go down it could be huge...... At the very least, it should help us move up a few spots as I would imagine the Heat will be better than LA.

    National guys are killing us for taking on the salary. Well... obviously nobody cares. We aren't attracting any free agents and Dan Gilbert obviously doesn't give a shit about the money.

    Even better.... We add a fairly decent sized expiring contract to try to trade away next season. I know the value of expiring contracts has gone down, but it does still have some value. I guarantee we get at least some interest in that next season. Luke Walton and Boobie Gibson will be a combined $10 million dollars in expiring contracts. I think this should be getting more attention.


    Gilbert gets bashed instead of getting credit for paying $5 mil to get a pick in the fucking 20's. Guy is a beast.

    For b00bie and all the other Dolan lovers..... DAMN I WISH HE'D BUY THE INDIANS!!!!!

    Forget Boobie, I think he's a piece that will remain here for a long time. But Walton gives us a moveable expiring contract. They've lost value, but a $6 million expiring is much better than Jamison's $15 million. Walton can actually be moved for a piece that isn't high cost. With Jamison, teams would have had to gut their core to get him (for the most part).

    If you ask me who won this, I will say the Lakers. Ramon is going to get Jeremy Lin type hype really soon. He will score close to 20 a game, and he has been great assisting on the drive and kick this year, so the media is going to go nuts for him. I really think he will do well, and help that team come alive because for one thing he has a lot of energy, and if he breaks down the defense, Kobe and Pau are going to have wide open shots.

    I love the trade though for the Cavs too. The pick swap tips it over the edge.

    If the Lakers pick is better than the Heats, we get the Lakers pick.

    If the Heat's pick is better than the Lakers, we get the Heats pick.

    Example: If Heat pick 30 and LA picks 23, we get pick 23.

    If Heat pick 20 and LA picks 25, we get pick 20.

    If the Lakers pick is better then the Heat's, we essentially can force a trade where the Lakers get the Heat's pick and we get the Laker's pick.
    What I don't know is if there any lottery protection on this or not.
    There is a tension, peculiar to basketball, between the interests of the team and the interests of the individual. The game continually tempts the people who play it to do things that are not in the interest of the group.

    I can definitely see Ramon dribbling for 20 seconds before throwing himself into the D and missing, then the camera cutting to Kobe incredulously shaking his head.

    Ramon dribbles A LOT. Kobe might kill him.

    In the 2013 draft, the Cavs are allowed to swap their Miami 1st round pick with the Lakers 1st round pick.

    So basically, we will get whichever pick is higher next year.
