So you've all heard the news by now: Pau Gasol is a L*ker.
Use this space for your impressions. How was the trade? How will it look in 3-5 years? Is Blazers-L*kers coming back?
It's hard to see where this hurts them offensively. Paul is a mid-range guy nowadays and won't disturb Bynum in the post too much. The L*kers are already used to only a couple people taking all the shots so no problem there. I don't think he's any worse than Kwame Brown defensively either and he rebounds nearly as much.
Team speed goes down a little. Mediocre future draft picks go down a lot. Salary remains high for a while, but then what room were the L*kers going to have anyway? If they've boxed themselves in a corner it's a pretty good corner to be in.
