Nah we ended up winning two championships and getting two more valuable players after that.

why no ? Jason was still productive at 33-34 and Kevin Garnett Was 31 so still good to with a 29 year old Kobe unbeatable!

No, I don't think giving up our entire roster for 2 aging players would have been enough to win it all. SA, Dallas, and Phoenix still would have been better than us in the west IMO, unless by some magic wand stuff Mitch would have put a decent team around them. But no I'll take the for sure 2 titles we do have and a future to look forward to with Howard as opposed to trading our future for maybe winning titles and then being stuck with ancient players with terrible contracts (although I suppose they both would have expired this past offseason).

No, but a prime Kobe and KG would have been the most intimidating tandom for opponents.

I don't really care for Kidd, never have tbh.

Why would you trade the all time greatest center Andrew Bynum, better than Shaq/Hakeem/Wilt/KAJ for little old Jason Kidd and/or Kevin Garnett?

The real question is, if GP had reported to Boston, and had Marcus Banks in a Laker uniform, would the Lakers had won 70 games and the title that year?

I don't think we could have picked them both up even if we wanted to.

And really after discussing it and saying no for any other reasons, this is the real answer to the question. Our best players back then were Kobe, LO, Kwame and Bynum (and Bynum was only by default because he hadn't emerged yet, his value was potential and height) , how were we going to trade for Kidd and KG with those assets alone?

Are you serious? I mean, I just assume you make assanine threads for joke sakes or because you have nothing better to do but now I think you are serious.

The LOS ANGELES LAKERS WON.... read again... WON..... TWO... read again.... TWO... CHAMPIONSHIPS with the team constructed and made it to 3 straight finals. So the answer is NO we made the right choice.

wow, we are on the cusp of starting a new season with Nash and Howard....the last thing we should be pondering is what ifs from 5 years ago. Especially when the reality of the last 5 years have been awesomely unbelievable

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 ! :jam2:

Lol, OP has made some crappy threads, but I like playing the hypothetical game, so I'll entertain this

^ 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.
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.
