I'm so glad we didn't trade him or buy out his contract. There's been a lot of mumbles the past year that the team has considered both options during at least one juncture and there have been many fans begging for the same over the past year (a lot of them on this site, as well). I really don't think the Lakers can win another championship without him. Nash and Dwight clearly add a whole new level of talent to this team. But the heart, fire, passion, tireless effort, and the toughness necessary in May and June all runs through Mr. Artest. When 100%, Dwight is the best defender in the game, but he doesn't have a nasty bone in his body. Sometimes you need to roll up your sleeves, get in the mud, and wrestle...that's what MWP brings.
