I like that trade. If Pau won't be happy in LA, better to get something for him than nothing.

in this case it might be better to get nothing.  first an asian on the lakers, and now they want to add a white guy?  good luck this season.

Lakers can use some diversity on the roster, worked for Spurs.

It looks like, the Lakers will get nothing for Gasol.

Yep... Gasol to Bulls and I think for the same amount of money that the Lakers offered.

So instead of attracting good free agents, they've repelled them.

Also - you have to blame Lakers management. They traded for Lin. Signed Hill for $9 mil. No head coach.

And let Phil go to NY instead of signing him back when they hired NO D'antoni.

Rings

Kobe: 5
Dwight: 0
Pau: 2
Lebron: 2
Carmelo: 0
Chris P: 0

I wouldn't say Kobe never got picked. He good have failed at forcing Charlotte to trade him and have 0 rings to this day.

So basically Lakers will be rebuilding for 2 or 3 more years.

Maybe when Kobe's contract expires, CP3 will move across the hall (actually not until 2017) and LBJ will want to live the Hollywood life after being home for 3 years.

It's sad that Purple&Gold's ability to attract free agents isn't what it used to be.

Seriously, if they hired Phil over D'Antoni, Dwight may have stayed and they would have been able to sign other free agents. Instead we get Linjury, Swaggy P-Shooter, Dreadlocks, OldManNash and Kobchilles. With Pau gone... who is going to wear the big boy pants at center? Sacre?

I think as it stands, the starting 5 is:

Lin PG
Kobe SG
Swaggy SF
Randle PF
Hill C

Looks like a lottery lineup to me.

Trading for Nash was a big mistake. Even if he didn't get injured.

Laker's problem is they are so lacking in assets such as young talent and draft picks, while a 36 year old Kobe is coming off two major injuries with cap killing salary of 20+ million.

lost Dwight for nothing; lost Gasol for nothing; mortgaged the future for Nash who is all but broken down.

Because of lack of picks and Kobe's contract, the best thing front office can do now is to make business/financial moves, not basketball moves.

With Kobe and Lin, the ticket and jersey sales will be healthy; at least the Buss family can pocket pretty handsomely.

For Lakers to come back, it will take at least 3-5 years before they can replenish their young talent pool.

True. Ultimately each team can only play 5 guys at a time so there is a chance that the Lakers will make the playoffs especially if Kobe can stay healthy.
