Picking a star for the Lakers, I would go with the combo of Love or Milsap and Granger.
Trade Dwight tomorrow to the Clips (they won't refuse to help keeping Paul and running around with Dwight and Blake) -- for Jordan, Bledsoe (super athletic, fast, and good defender to learn behind Nash for 2 more years), and LO (and whatever other pieces needed) and picks.
Turn Metta, Blake and those picks into Granger (whom Indy wants to move for picks and cap relief plus players to help them win now and center around George and Hill).
Then turn Gasol's large expiring this summer or in December into pieces/picks in a 3-way for Milsap or Love. Give Clark some decent money. Next season's team is perfectly STACKED -- with young, athletic and fast talent (Bledsoe, Meeks, Clark, Love, D. Jordan, Hill) that compliments each other well and is solid to build around for the future, plus the perfect mix of playoff-tested vets (Nash, Kobe, Granger, LO). And this would be a great team for MDA's system (both the first and second units).
Nash, Bledsoe, Morris
Kobe, Meeks, (FA min contract)
Granger, Clark, (Jamison back?)
Love (or Milsap), LO
Jordan, Hill, Sacre
That team could give Kobe # 6, no doubt, AND be a very solid POST-Kobe team needing only a 8-14 million dollar combo-guard player like Ellis, Mayo, or Tyreke to take Kobe's place in the rotation and run with Bledsoe, while letting Love and Granger become the first/second options. I don't think the ball would get stuck too much with that team - running, gunning, having fun, and rebounding. They also would have decent defenders at the point - Bledsoe, wing - Granger and Clark, and rim - Jordan and Hill.
