Allen's Breaking News Story

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – In recent years, Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum – when healthy – have given theLos Angeles Lakers the NBA's most intimidating big-man tandem, a rare combination of 7-footers who can play together and provide a sizeable matchup advantage against opponents. And yet as the start of the 2011-12 season nears, Gasol and Bynum now find themselves eclipsed by the shadow of another giant:Dwight Howard, the Orlando Magic's All-Star center.

Gasol was nearly traded this month for All-Star point guard Chris Paul, and the Lakers engaged the Magic in talks for Howard that would have likely cost them Bynum and/or Gasol. The Magic tabled the conversations, but as long as Howard continues to list the Lakers as one of his preferred destinations and refuses to sign an extension to stay in Orlando, neither Bynum nor Gasol can be certain they'll remain in L.A. for the duration of this season.
