    Lakers obtain Pau Gasol!! Yea!

    I just heard that my Lakers got Pau Gasol from the Grizz for Kwame Brown, Javaris Crittenton and two first-round picks.
    ESPN mentioned somehting about options for a couple other players as well, but no one of note.

    I am pumped to see how this rounds out this Laker team.
    They may be mortgaging the future a little with those two #1 pics, but with Kobe in his prime, and Gasol in his prime, and Bynum showing signs of greatness, this could be a fun team for a few years.

    I hope it all fits into place well.
    As they say "Time will tell" and isnt that the beauty of sports.

    I am excited about the rest of the season.

    Wow....they can definitely challenge the best in the west now.

    This is the most interesting the NBA has been in quite a while. Anytime the Celtics and the Lakers are contenders, the NBA is on the right track.

    I wonder how many here know that the "Lakers" used to be the "Minneapolis Lakers," hence their name. Another team that left town for greener pastures when Minnesota failed to support them.

    Good for both teams I guess. Gasol isn't your true number 1, game changing player like Kobe or Dwayne wade.But what he brings to the table is consistency and defense.I think what the lakers needed most, they got.Someone who just like Kobe, is gonna give you points night in and night out.Good acquisition for L.A. certainly.

    I always figure that must by the underlying reason why I love the Lakers (just not as much as I like the Vikes).

    But it doesnt hurt that the paint in my "Vikings Room" is pretty darn close to Lakers colors as well.
    The purple is basically almost exact.
    Our Gold is a little golder than the Lakers Yellow though.

    I think this comment belongs in one of the many stadium discussion threads. But I am pretty sure that everone knew that.

    Don't put Dwayne Wade in the same conversation as Kobe. How is Dwayne doing this year? I guess it doesn't hurt that the Heat front office gotten taken by Kevin McHale. Antwan Walker(sucks, but has a short contract) and a first round pick for Ricky Davis(sucks and has a huge contract for a few years) and Mark Blunt(sucks)!!!!. I mean how bad do you have to be to get taken by Kevin McHale?
