Didn't we trade them the pick that became Rondo in that deal?

Rondo was a Phoenix pick iirc

It was our pick. We gave that to Boston, then Boston gave it to Atlanta, then Atlanta gave it to Phoenix.

Oh ok. sucks

Really amazing to see how much we've improved since then.. Post Shaq trade, Mitch had no assets we could afford to lose & still somehow got us the peices needed for a 3 year finals window.. & then flipped those pieces to give us another 3 year window. We're the luckiest fans in sports.

yes, the only crap thing is that Kobe's prime was wasted....you know 2004-2008 when he was physically on top of his game.

I know, it shouldn't matter but it kind of does. Winning in your prime is special, you really feel like you are bigger than life. When you age and you win because you have a good team, it probably doesn't feel the same.

I would have loved to see Kobe average 40 in the NBA Finals...but he was never in that position because he was either too young or too tentative. We didn't see him with reckless abandon at the top of his game.

I know he had some huge playoff games every year actually but he never put together an incredible monster series (by his standards)...like averaging 40 ppg in a series or going for 60+ in a game etc. During the years he potentially could, he didn't have the teams to get there.


Yeah, I would have loved to see the 35.4 PPG (80 pt game, multiple 50pt games) Kobe in games that really, really mattered. Like putting up a 50 spot in the NBA finals.

On the flip side, if we had a dominant team then, we might be in rebuilding mode now. Think about it. Because we struggled, we rebuilt, got Drew and that one piece got us Howard. If we would have taken probably any other player in that draft, (and one that was more, NBA ready as some people wanted), I don't think we'd be in the position we'd be in today. No way we would have gotten Howard for, say, Danny Granger. No freaking way.

With all due respect to Kobe, it's rare for any leading player to have a monster game in the finals, especially in the zone era. Most moron coaches just zone up on the star player, and make the role players come up big. The stars get too much attention to come up big in big games. It was different in the 90's, when zones weren't allowed, and double-teams were only allowed when you had the ball. A star player could really go off then, doing most of their damage on single coverage.

Kobe hasn't had any bad games in the finals. He's always contributed at a star level, whether it's scoring, assisting, or rebounding. Don't get caought up in what the media says about him.

Here's a long article...from a Celtics fan.

http://clnsradio.com/2012/08/21/damn-lakers/

The Lakers Continue Their Winning Ways by Following the Same Plan
Damn Lakers.


But really, how else can we react? The Lakers have done it again.

This is not a recent phenomenon either. For the past 40 years, every time it looks like the Lakers’ star is beginning to fade, they pull a rabbit out of their hat to not only get back in the mix, but to re-cement their status as the dominant team in the NBA.

So excuse me for being a little, shall we say, peeved.


The emotions have gotten the best of me, however. This writer cannot get over the Lakers fortune over the last forty freakin’ years. And to put it lightly, that fortune has played its part in the Lakers being unequivocally the best franchise in all of professional sports since the 1970s.


And then, of course, those damn Lakers blindsided their haters with yet another haymaker. Dwight Howard to LA, while the whole basketball world’s eyes were on the Summer Olympics in London.

Howard came to LA via Orlando, following the same path of Shaquille O’Neal. In a four-team trade, the Magic got in return for Howard Arron Afflalo, Al Harrington, Nikola Vucevic, Moe Harkless, and three (late) first round draft choices. Hey, at least it was more than what they got for Shaq.

Those damn Lakers caught us sleeping again. They always do. That’s how they do it.


You tell yourself to stop wondering. You tell yourself to not get agitated over it. But you can’t. Those bastids have done it again. The same redundant process has repeated itself. The cycle goes on.

Damn Lakers.

Yet as I watched him Monday, I could not help think how little it mattered and how right he is. He is not fading into the shadows. He does not know how to go out that way.[.]

Respect for that Celtics fan.

At least he wasn't all:
"Oh, will Kobe hog the ball"
"Nash is too old"
"Dwight is going to cry again"
"What about chemistry?"

Nonsense. Hate those dumb "fans". Just completely blind.

its funny though that C's fans are crying bout this, when it was their team who started this recent super-team trend, I mean w/o their big 3 to get in James way, I dont think Mia big 3 comes together like that :man10: and obviously we're trying to counter Mia's 3 with our own.

Here's a gem from 2008 from a Sun's fan:

Might as well trade Nash, Amare and Matrix now since we won't be winning a title in the future.

An idiot Clipper fan tried to tell me today that the Spurs are still better than the us. Man I had a really good laugh at that.

Frankly, I haven't met too many educated Clipper fans in my life. There's something about being a fan of such losers that clouds your thoughts, I fathom.

You're in LA, and you choose to be a fan of the Clippers.

That's like being in a room with an ugly girl and a hot girl, and choosing the ugly girl.

Actually, the big 3 got together mostly because they wanted to end the "Kobe era." Plain and simple. Wade and Bron act like they like Kobe, but they really didn't want him to win another ring because they were coming into their primes and would never live down the Kobe era arguments. I was told by an attorney in Miami who works for the Heat (she and I went to law school together) that part of Riley's pitch to Bron and Bosh was that them teaming up was the only way to ensure that Kobe didn't win 1 or 2 more. dont forget, at that time, Kobe had just been in 3 straight finals. Bron and Wade wanting to beat him and end his run was a huge factor -- you can see it when Wade plays him, always takes it personally (like in the freakin All-Star game).

Riles tried the same with Fish too -- "you can win one without Kobe."

Since they formed -- 2 straight finals and 1 ring. Did the Lakers do enough this summer to get Kobe back to the finals?

If they stay healthy and Kobe buys into the Boston and Mia big-3 mentality of sacrificing stats, then yes...

It's strange how quiet it's been. I think we've seriously done so much damage that it's tough to admit we are going to OWN.

I'm the biggest Laker fan I know, and I still haven't fathomed our lineup.

We REALLY added Nash and Dwight to our starting line-up? AND our bench good MUCH better?

I mean, seriously? Who does that? We barely lost to OKC last year. We blew 2 games. We could have easily been in the WCF.

I have watched a lot of basketball in my time. Laker homer or not, if this team is healthy the entire way, no one is beating them. Especially Miami. If Howard gave Miami fits with Hedo, Jameer and Redick playing a long side him, how the hell are they going to stop him with Kobe, Nash, Artest and Gasol? OKC will be an interesting team, but we already saw how the Lakers pretty much shut down their offense well for 2 games that should have been wins had the Lakers OFFENSE not given Durant the ball to score in 2 secs when they had two leads. And now you are telling me, with Howard as the anchor, it wont be better? Come on.

Lakers are going to destroy team next year. If they do not win at least 65 games next year, that will be embarrassing.

Then prepare to be embarrased. While Nash, Kobe, Pau and Howard is really an impressive team, it's still a newly assembled team, they need to figure out each other and gain some experience together. Hopefully, come Playoffs time, they will have everything figured out, but we will most probably have some struggles during the Regular Season, specially in the pre All-Star period.
