This is a good trade for the Lakers. Pau can flat out play. He will be a good second option When they get Bynum back and he moves to power forward they will have an excellent front line with Pau, Bynum and Odom. They will be tough to beat once they get some time together. They will challenge for the finals out of the west. This is all Kobe wanted and now he has it. They have Pau locked for three years and he is young too. Hell the whole team is young. They will be a contender for years to come.

A good trade. This will keep them contenders for years to come and Kobe cant complain anymore. I was hoping the lakers would trade him though, just to shake up the league a little bit...I wished they traded him to my bulls.

I remember those days well. My dad was a celtics fan and I was and am a Lakers fan and we battled back and forth for ten years. The eighties were great NBA basketball. These young players should go and watch some film of Bird and Magic and Mchale,Parish,Worthy,Cooper,Ai nge, and all the rest. Then MJ was there and the Bad boys of Detroit and all the others. That was great deacde of basketball! Hell I almost forgot to mention DR J!
