as for whether it's like miami...agree with others. it also is different given the career arcs of the players involved. it's a lot more like boston in 2008 than miami in 2010.

Instead they end up with a big 4 or Nash, Kobe, Howard and Gasol. Based on this and how it appears on paper which do you prefer?

The Lakers played this one by the rules and won. Class.
