Lol, OP has made some crappy threads, but I like playing the hypothetical game, so I'll entertain this
NO ! two years late boy, I want to trade for KG in 2005, imagine a prime 26 yrs old Kobe and 28 yrs old KG in a same team, championship in 06,07,08,09,10 I am talking about, 5-peat baby !
^ I agree to an extent, I would have taken chances on a 28 year-old KG in 2005... maybe. But in any year after that? I say no, because by then we had traded for Kwame and any deal would cost us both Bynum and Odom. So 2007? No way. Pau was far and away the best deal for LA.
But if that deal happened in 2005, I would assume that our package would include Butler-or-Odom + our 1st rd pick, which ended up being Bynum. So would you rather trade Bynum for KG, or trade Bynum for Dwight? KG is no slouch but I'd go for Dwight.
Also, KG is a douche.
