I am not generally into conspiracies, but I really get the sense that Laker legend and NBA Logo Jerry West had something to do with helping this get pulled off. the day I heard of the trade, I almost injured my neck by trying to perform a backflip of joy!Even if I had to end up wearing a neck brace, it would have been worth it.

Yes... Gasol was one of the biggest steals in NBA history!!! Even the Bucks got more use out of all the players they received for Jabbar when he was nabbed by the Lakers.
