Odom + Ariza is better than Odom + Artest. The Lakers shouldn't have done this if Ariza wasn't asking for much more than the Mid Level Exception.

Ariza is way younger than Artest, he's less volatile than Artest, and he's more unselfish/efficient on offense than Artest. Ron-Ron's defense is a bit overrated; he's not that quick anymore and he can't hand-check the hell out of players like he did when he was with Indiana.

This move has the potential to backfire, particularly if Jackson doesn't return as coach. I'm guessing he'll be back, though.

Good point.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).
