Brooklyn and LA Lakers get screwed. Boston does badly.

Dallas is a huge winner.

The Lakers are going to get screwed period... But I think L.A. gets a ideal players for D'Antoni's system who's familiar & Lopez for Dwight while getting Jeff Green isn't bad at all. I don't know where draft picks would go, but we keep Pierce & Garnett. And the idea is to play Mayo at PG with Avery at the 2. Collison a excellent backup point & Terry at 2 back re-united with Nowitzki. I think this is a trade where everyone gets what they want ultimately.

Not sure what the motivation for Brooklyn to do this would be...why would they trade Lopez and Deron for Rondo and a bunch of role players?

Sullinger & Melo are only role players on our team. Sullinger mainly would probably be a double-double machine anywhere else with big minutes. Kaman good player also with Lee not being shabby. But I understand what your saying as to their motive. But in my opinion this in the long run is better than what they have in the current. They wont win a championship as currently constructed.

I think it's very unrealistic and that there's no point worrying about it.

I once posted a trade where I said we would give up Gerald Green, Al Jefferson, Rajon Rondo, Ryan Gomes etc. for Kevin Garnett that people said was unrealistic years ago & guess what happened. We eventually didnt have to give up Rondo. KG even said anything's possible didn't he? although this was more for chips & giggles but I was sure serious about that Garnett one people blasted me for.

Very impressive, but I don't think an 18-player, 4-franchise-player trade is realistic. Prove me wrong, but I'd hope not. I don't like the deal anyways, too many of our good guys going away, Dirk and Sullinger are likely never moving, it's just not realistic or rational. Sorry!

I know its not realistic when it involves more than 1 team, but its always ok to create a CB trade isn't it?

Cuban isn't trading Dirk, like ever. That's according to Cuban's own words.

I am not sure why the Nets would do this deal.

No disrespect but I think you are overvaluing Sully, Melo and Kaman.

Boston will be just fine. Cannot say the same on Brooklyn and Dallas.

LAL obviously are the clear winners. They are in a deep quandary on how to find solution on the Dwight problem. D12 could simply walk away from them if he aint convinced and happy of a team that is assembled in the offseason. They get Brook and Deron for their superstar who is practically a rental. D12's best destinations are teams that are ready or have shot to win it all this year - i.e. Clippers, Thunder, Memphis and Knicks. Or, he could simply wait for the season to end and join any those teams including the Bulls who are about to unveil a healthy DRose. No team that were mentioned in this proposed trade will budge in  to get D12 because of the risk that he could just walk away. So, clearly the Fakers win (actually hit a jackpot) if they get those 4 players for a superstar that might just walk away from them.
