It was nothing fair about that Gasol trade and it's the MAIN reason Kobe is set up to win 2 more titles.

LA had a squad led by Kobe that was destined to be either exited in the 1st round or 2nd round annually, before this gasol deal. Now the team is 'almost' impossible to match up against because of their length up front.

In comparison the Garnett deal sent him to another conference and everybody new it was a 2 year window MAX, for the Celtics to win a title with him.

P. Gasol has atleast 4 more prime years left before he starts to decline and the deal was made within the conference to a playoff team, which made it even more lopsided.

It sent the entire Western Conference scrambling and I remember GM's being irrate about how this one sided deal shifted the power within the conference, with LA losing almost nothing.

One of the most 'gifted' trades in NBA history IMO.

Sorry to go off topic a little.

I think Lebron ends up wherever he can convince Bosh to go with him.

How the hell did the Gasol trade rear its ugly head in a thread about where Lebron might end up.

FYI, the Lakers were the already the best team in the west before the Gasol trade.
As a Laker fan, no they weren't.

I don't wanna get this too off topic, but that is a straight up lie right there. The Hornets, Spurs and even Jazz all had better cases for best team in the west before that trade went down. The Lakers had a chance to make it to the conference finals at best that year.

Yeah the Hornets were. They were good, but I don't think they would've made it to the Finals that year (or any other) without Gasol.

You right King. Don't know what the hell I was thinking.
