Lakers Trade Kwame Brown for Memphis' Pau Gasol


In a big time trade on Friday, the LA Lakers traded Kwame Brown to the Memphis Grizzlies for forward/center Pau Gasol. The Lakers will also receive the Grizzlies second round draft choice in 2010. In exchange Memphis also receives guard Javaris Crittenton, guard Aaron McKie (who the Lakers signed earlier today), the draft rights to Marc Gasol and first round picks in 2008 and 2010. This should make the Lakers contenders in the West and helps them get rid of the overpriced Brown. Kobe Bryant has got to be happy with this deal, doesn't he? This could be one of those trades that changes the playoff run for the Lakers and be a huge help in rebuilding the Grizzlies in future years. Gasol is a 7th year player out of Spain and averaging 18.9 points, 8.8 rebounds and 1.44 blocked shots per game this season. The 27 year old 7’0” forward/center has career averages of 18.8 points and 8.6 rebounds. Gasol was a 2006 NBA All-Star and 2001-02 NBA Rookie of the Year, Gasol also won a gold medal with Spain at the 2006 FIBA World Championships while being named tournament MVP.

A little off topic, Guys... I have a question. Last weekend I saw this site:
[url=http://www.rivalspot.com]Rivalspot.com - Playstation tournaments[/url]
They say you can play online Fight Night game tournaments on any console for cash... had anyone tried that before? Looks like a cool idea...
Are there any other sites where you can play sports games for real moneys? I Googled and found only Bringit.com and Worldgaming.com but it looks these guys don't specialize in sport gamez. Any suggestions?
