    Found this over at the ESPN forums.
    BOBCATS BASELINE » Rip and Tayshaun for Wallace and Okafor? // the most obsessed Charlotte Bobcats Blog of all time
    Basically proposing Okafor+Wallace+ Nazr for Tay+Rip+Max. And he lists great reasons for Charlotte to do it.
    NBA Trade Machine - ESPN
    And we'd still have enough money for Glen Davis, Drew Gooden, or Chris Wilcox.
    What do you think?
    C: Okafor/Kwame/Nazr
    PF: Charlie/Big Baby(or Drew Gooden or Chris Wilcox)
    SF: Wallace/Summers/Daye/Jerebko
    SG: BG/Deron Washington???(OK, obviously we would need help here with Afflalo gone :()
    PG: Stuckey/Bynum

    Someone needs to e-mail this to Joe like right now!

    I think all of us would love this trade.

    This sounds intriguing. However, who would play 5 for Bobcats?

    Larry Brown get two of his championship players in Hamilton and Tayshaun.

    I was going to save you the trouble but figured your words would carry more weight.

    Because as fans, we think that because he won a title with these guys 6 years ago, he is partial to them.

    He isn't. He is in the business of wins and losses. If anything, his coaching career has been characterized by wanting the guy he never coached, the guy he doesn't have on his roster. Once he is familiar with a player, he's already shopping for an improvement.

    We're romantics about players. Coaches can't afford to be. That is why the 13th man spends most of the season deactivated, even if we think the egalitarian thing would be to activate him and let him get some garbage time.

    This I understand. But why do you think he wouldn't want them on his team?

    LB is not in love with the players from 04. We are. We project our emotions onto the professionals.

    I have reason to believe that LB is not a fan of one of the players being traded. And that is all I will say about that.

    As long as there is reason there. I have no facts or knowledge, so I naturally question the conclusion.

    I have to disagree with you Roscoe. You truly have no idea what he truly thinks of those 2 players. Just like we think he loves them, you think he doesn't. There's no real way to tell.

    If a trade such as this went down, I'd be VERY VERY VERY happy, which is also why I don't believe it will

    Actually I do have an idea about one of them. But I am not at liberty to divulge it.

    Depending on how sincere you think I am, you can take it or leave it.

    It will never happen.G-Force is a better player then Prince and Bobcats don't need a SG when they have Bell and drafted Henderson.

    It was widely known after the Pistons won in '04 that LB went to Dumars and Davidson with a list of core players he wanted to be moved, something that caused a little discord to say the least.

    He was not in love with that entire starting 5.

    It's hard to imagine who though. It seemed like he had great relationships with everyone in the lineup.

    Remember in '05 when the Pistons were playing the Spurs in the finals and LB stopped everyone in the huddle and said: "I love you guys".

    He didn't say: "I love you guys, ...except for you Rip. Your a whiner. ...And Tayshaun. You're too skinny and your luggage is too small."
