Most Laker fans remember the game back in 2000 when Kobe Bryant and Antawn Jamison both scored 51 points in a head to head battle when the latter played for the Golden State Warriors. Most recently Jamison was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers to help LeBron James win a title. Well, Cleveland lost and James left town. Since then Cleveland has lost 21 straight and appear to be on the fast track to the lottery.
It would make sense that Cleveland would want to move Jamison, but it doesn’t make sense for the Lakers. After all, Jamison doesn’t fix any of the pressing issues Los Angeles has. Other than the obvious contractual issues that may arise, Jamison isn’t going to toughen the front line anymore than Lamar Odom or Pau Gasol will. It’s safe to say this trade is going nowhere.
