The NBA trade deadline is on Feb. 24, so let’s start getting crazy with idiot Lakers trade speculation.

This morning ESPN The Magazine’s Chris Broussard reported that sources said the Lakers were willing to trade center Andrew Bynum for the Denver Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony.

ESPN has taken Broussard’s story and ran with it. ESPN Los Angeles’ Arash Markazi even went so far as to post a link to a picture of Melo in a Lakers jersey on Twitter.

While we're at it, let's bring over LeBron James for Lamar Odom, the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders for the Lakers girls and Eva Longoria for Khloe Kardashian.

For all the Lakers fans with visions of Melo in their heads: don't. This is not going to happen.
