Just stop: Bosh is not coming to Lakers

Feb 15, 2010, 3:11 PM EDT

bosh.jpgSome trade rumors are like Freddy Krueger or Sammy Hagar — horrible, evil monsters that you just can’t get rid of.

Take the silly Chris Bosh for Andrew Bynum rumors, for example. First, all weekend in Dallas, Toronto front office staff shot down anyone who brought up Bosh’s name in a trade. Then there’s the fact this whole rumor was really something the Lakers front office staff kicked around very casually, but got leaked because of internal office politics. This deal is not going to happen.

Our own Ira Winderman is not even sure why either team should do it:

If you do one of those “who’s better” matchups between the Lakers and Mavericks, position by position, the Lakers still have the superior lineup, even when getting down to the sixth-man comparison between Lamar Odom and Jason Terry .

Then there is the issue of why the Raptors would in any way feel compelled to move Bosh for Bynum.

If anything, Toronto can wait until the offseason and then work out the best possible sign-and-trade for Bosh, upping the ante for what it can get in return.

Exactly — this trade makes little sense for Toronto, would shake up a good Lakers roster and would force Jerry Buss to take on more salary when he says he is trying to cut. Stop asking about it. It’s not ever going to happen. Stop. Just stop.

    I agree, this trade proposal is completely ridiculous. It serves no purpose for either team, especially Toronto who would be giving away their franchise player for a soft-ish hot and cold big man. Bynum will never be a franchise-level player. Toronto needs to stand pat until the summer where they can hope to either re-sign Bosh or sign and trade a more appropriate offer.

    You must’ve flunked out of school…. Sammy Hagar with Freddy Krueger huh? It sounds like another idiots poor attempt at satire.

    I think they should do the three-way trade with portland with chicago, that would send Adam Morrison, Travis Outlaw, Steve Blake and Juwan Howard to Chicago, Tyrus Thomas and Sasha Vujacic to portland and we would get Kirk Hinrich, he is a three point shooter, he could defend the quicker guards such as chauncee billups, deron williams etc..we could also look in about the detroit rumor for Tayshaun Prince.

    Hey Kurt your a douchebag for dissing Sammy. Seems more like your the evil monster and just the fact that you said this make the rest of your opinion completely worthless. You are a moron and I think maybe you should just stop.

    sorry idiot canadians…Bosh is leaving, and you won’t get a better offer than Bynum
    Bynum and Sasha for Bosh (sign and trade)
    start Gasol at Center, he plays better there
