Dog you talking about a regular season game. A regular season game before we added Gasol might I add.....
yall had gasol, he just didnt play that game cus of his ankle. and yao didnt play that game either and we still smacked that laker a.ss. now adding artest to the mix and its gonna be like that from now on for u lakers. except for now, shave 17 points off from ur score in that game and add it to ours.

I predicted and called that Artest would be in a Houston uniform months ago.

I thought they would get rid of Shane though

we got Artest for damn near nothing

Well well...my team has acquired a nut case...but u know every team has to have a trio now to win....Artest is a great add to the lineup...the front court can be stronger than what it was....don't have to rely on McGrady guarding someone a lil stronger than him at the end...he can have more energy to score..so will Artest..and hoping on Yao to stay healthy...

"They weren't going to win a championship with Artest. They weren't going to win a championship with whatever key player they got for Artest. By going for draft picks and the expiring contract of Jackson they're sticking with their long-term strategy of good young players until they can be major players in the 2010 free agent market. That summer they can have Beno Udrih, Kevin Martin, Spencer Hawes, Jason Thompson, Quincy Douby, Greene and three more draft picks under contract, plus some $25 million-plus in salary cap room."



This is exactly what the grizzlies did and are doing and they somehow are idiots.
I find it amusing that Sacto makes a blatantly Pau-esque trade -- giving away a borderline all-star talent for late first rd picks -- and the media willingly accepts and acknowledges that it is part of a plan that makes sense.

Which explains why Darrel Arthur was drafted ahead of Donte Green?

Green is still better than Arthur

Rose was drafted ahead of Mayo and Beasley doesn't mean hes better

Artest's trade value was in the sh*tter all offseason. Houston was apparently the only team willing to part with a 1st rounder.
Pau still had good trade value and other teams offered better pieces than the Lakers.

Shut up. Every time a superstar gets traded, will this thread will be made? Memphis lost because they traded their franchise player to the best team in the West for a bust Center, 2 draft picks and a 3rd-4th string PG on most teams. The Kings got more for Artest than Memphis for Gasol, and Gasol is better than Artest.

But the Kings actually have good young players to build around. And owners that are willing to pay free-agents big money.

The Grizz owner basically just wants to give players away to save money not "rebuild"

And im not even really talking about the players involved in the trade. Im talking about the logic behind the trade.

They weren't going to win a championship with Pau. They weren't going to win a championship with whatever key player they got for Pau. By going for draft picks and the expiring contract of Kwame they're sticking with their long-term strategy of good young players until they can be major players in the 2010 free agent market. That summer they can have Rudy Gay, Oj Mayo, Marc Gasol, Mike Conley, Kyle Lowry, Arthur and 2 more draft picks under contract, plus some $30 million-plus in salary cap room."

The kings only got Green, a first and an expiring contract. the Grizzlies got Arthur, Marc Gasol, J critt, and 1 round pick in 2010 and a bigger expiring contract. And Pau is better than Artest?

there isnt an outrage because we dont know which artest the rockets will get

most importantly the kings are not as bad as the grizzlies

they had some good years

a free agent is more than liley to sign with the kings over the grizzlies

it seems like the only way a good player will sign with the grizzlies is if they are drafted to the team

i hope rudy and mayo want to help that team win a championhsip and to do that they will have 2 sign long term deals
