http://www.latimes.com/sports/sportsnow/la-sp-sn-dwight-howard-to-lake rs-20120226,0,7656235.story NBA All-Star Game week has all the movers and shakers of the sport in the same place. So it makes it a great place for rumors. Here's the latest one on Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard coming to the Lakers, courtesy of Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel. The Magic send Howard, Hedo Turkoglu and Jameer Nelson to the Lakers for Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum. The Toronto Raptors are also part of the rumor sending Jose Calderon to Orlando, although no one is quite sure what would complete that part of the trade. The rumor also has all this happening on March....

Bandwagon? I hate the Lakers and I've never been partial to the Magic. Dwight has a post game because he's athletic and works on it. Bynum is fat and scores simply because of the attention drawn on Pau and Kobe. Get over yourself.

How is Bynum better than D12 offensively, D12 is 15th scoring PPG and Bynum is 41st?! hard to fully analyse this trade until it is known who is being sent to the Raptors but assuming starting 5 D12, Hudo, MWP, KB, Jameer that ain't too shabby, Hudo and Jameer should be better players having less pressure playing alongside KB who plus D12 will carry the bulk of the offensive load. Coach Brown is preaching defense this year and having DPoY in his team will fit perfectly into his system. Fact 1: Lakers will be better with this trade. Fact 2: Magic will not

Bynum is a truer Center and plays like a center. Dwight is a top athlete playing center. Bynum is a better center in the true fashion of a center. Dwight is a Superstar and hands down more athletic. Dwight hands down is the best player.

So what you're saying is they are both centers?

What I am saying since I do coach Basketball. That there are very few true Big men in the NBA anymore. The Shaq, Kareem, Ewing, Robinson, Hakeem, Wilt, Russel these were true dominant Centers that can post up and play like a true dominant Big man.

While there are very few true centers in the NBA like Kaman, Greg Monroe, Marc Gasol, maybe Demarcus Cousins and of course Andrew Bynum. Now when you compare the true centers who can post up, box out, rebound and Block the ball. You would hands down have to take Bynum as the best True Center in the NBA. I also believe the Greg Monroe is young and will soon be the best true center in the NBA. But until thal happens Andrew is the best true Center.

Now players like Chandler, Deandre Jordan, Javale Mcgee and Dwight Howard are tall players that are athletic. Most of them have great athletic abillity. Good for rebounding because they are taller and can out jump there opponents. They can block because they jump higher. They Dunk because there taller and better athletes. There athletic abillity or height makes up for there lack of fundementals as a true big man.

For example could you see Andrew Bynum in the Dunk Contest no of course not.

Dwight Howard has won a dunk contest.

The only reason that Dwight is by far the better player is becasue he is a freak athlete. With tremendous jumping ability and upper body strength. He has some but a very limited low post moves. His athletic abillity, health and hustle allows hims to outrebound and outjump his oppents. That allows him to have easy dunks and bigger highlights. Also Dwight is more likable than a quiet Andrew Bynum Personallity. Therefore he is the better player but has less skills. Dwight is the Superstar and Andrew is now. Therefore hands down Dwight is the best player in his position. Which is considered the Center position even though he is not a true traditional Center and that is why Shaq said bynum is the better center. Becasue he is looking at it from the true sense of what it means to be a big man. He just didnt know how to make the general public understand what he meant.

Dwight is the better player by far not neccesarily the best Center.

You coach basketball and claim Greg Monroe is a true center? You do realize that even the Pistons announcers say almost every game he isn't a true center right? He's a power forward, that's why they want Kaman because Monroe is playing out of position. SAme reason why they would draft Andre Drummond.

^ You might be correct on Greg Monroe. I have seen him play only a few times. I have been watching his stats. Seeing him on the highlights and Shaq was speaking highly of him as a center. I have heard no mentions of him playing like a forward. The few times I watched him he looked like he was playing like a True center. But you might have more insight on Greg Monroe. So I will accept you thoughts on Greg for now. Until I can watch him a few more times...

Monroe is 6-11, he will struggle against the length of a true 7 foot plus center

Lakers fan here!

Bynum is better offensively BECAUSE his post game is dominant.

Dwight struggles doing post moves, BUT he is strong enough to get to the line, which gives him points.

However, hands down Dwight is the better defensive player and rebounder.

Bynum is not athletic so his explosiveness isn't there.

FINAL DECISION: If you want a consistent scorer who's dominant, go Bynum. Explosiveness, defense, and rebounds, go Dwight.

Dwight is based on atheltism if he wasn't so atheltic, he wouldn't average 20+ points as where Bynum gets 17 points when Kobe is hogging the ball 90% of the time. If Bynum had his own team, he could be able to average 23-25 points.

Yeah, we lost. Just shows how terrible our depth is. Kobe, Pau, Bynum: 72 Points Rest of the team: 13... 13!!!!! You can say Kobe shoots too much, but when Lakers take Kobe out, they couldn't make crap!

I agree it's basically a 3 man team and no pg to set up the twin towers. But Kobe shouldn't take over 20 shots and shoot less then 33% when his boy bynum is having a monster game.

Monroe was a PF in college and was drafted as a PF. Since the Pistons are horrible and play everyone out of position, they switched him to C at some point last season. Although he does have the height ( 6'11" ) to play center, he lacks muscle and weight ( 240lbs is rather thin for that height ).

Pistons were using Ben Wallace at C last year and others before realizing Monroe was worthy of being a starter. They play him, Stuckey, Jerebko and others out of position as well. However most of these guys on their team, can play multiple positions but either lack the height, skill etc to be a true say, PG, SG etc.

They need Anthony Davis.
