The Lakers go supernova: Phil Jackson quits

The Lakers go supernova: Phil Jackson quits as coach, Kobe opts out of his contract, and Shaq wants to be traded. Shaq back to Orlando for McGrady? To Denver for Carmelo? To Philly for Iverson? To Chicago for the whole team?

Hooray! I hate the Lakers!

And the Yankees!

But isn't McGrady asking for a trade?! Well if Shaq comes, I doubt that he will want the trade. Maybe Memphis for Jerry West.

As much as I hate the Lakers, trading Shaq would be the stupidest thing ever. Kobe can be replaced, but not Shaq.

Watch Dallas here... it would be a mistake to rule out Cuban.
