24 Seconds — BREAKING NEWS: Superman Drama Finally Over
Laker Fans have reason to cheer now. A blockbuster four team deal FINALLY went down just minutes ago that will be finalized tomorrow sending “Superman” Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers. The talks picked back up heavy, and the 76ers and Nuggets jumped in and made it happen. Maybe now all the drama with this is over and we can all stop hearing about it. Laker fans will miss Andrew Bynum, and will remember him as a Laker, but the future is looking bright for us.
The Lakers will receive Howard, the Denver Nuggets will acquire Andre Iguodala, the 76ers will receive Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson, and the Magic will get Arron Afflalo, Al Harrington, Nikola Vucevic and one protected future first-round pick from each of the other three teams. Now the details are not complete yet but will be by tomorrow they will be. This trade will send the obvious star to L.A, but the Denver Nuggets and the 76ers are also improving here.
The Magic have gained important cap relief as well as young stars and draft picks. Now I see people wanting a Heat-Laker finals, but remember a determined Thunder team is still in the West. The Lakers are serious contenders now though. Good luck on getting number six for Kobe and number seventeen for the Lakers.
