Lamar Odom could be close to final piece for next 3 years

The chances of Lamar Odom wanting to play in Portland while sharing time with Aldridge, Odom and Pryz are slim. I think if you are the Blazers you offer him a 3 year mega deal, then as he exits his prime we move on to the future. Addition by subtraction from the Lakers would catapult this organization past the Lakers IMO. We could then see what we can do about upgrading the PG position. Sure Odom shows up when he wants and is thought of as soft, but you take him off the Lakers and they suddenly do not have as many guys being long out there. That, is the #1 reason I believe they won this year, Kobe 2nd(maybe 3rd). Chances are slim to pull this off, I think you do as much as possible to make this happen because this takes you immediately into the first leg of championship runs with Roy. I am 100% confident in Batum and Roy's ability to take it to a declining Bryant.

This would leave Portland with:

Oden/Pryzbilla

Aldridge/Odom

vs

Bynum/Didier Ilunga-Mbenga

Gasol/Josh Powell
