i was surprised by the nash signing. most nba fans went nuts about the lakers getting howard, but that wasn't a big deal. they had to give up a 24 year old all star center in the process. nash was a total heist that required phx basically doing him a solid and helping a hated division rival in the process. i was shocked when i saw that.

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.

Wade was surprised that someone else can form a super team without players colluding in the background.

I don't know if this has been discussed somewhere but what if the Paul trade wasn't vetoed...Lakers would most likely have a big 3 of Paul, Kobe and Howard...lost Gasol. 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?

Definitely a much fairer comparison. This is a team that has compiled a lot of veterans and a little youth to make a contender. Boston brought together 3 aging stars to make a run. Although there's a little shadiness to the Garnett deal, we heisted Nash so we can't really talk.

It's difficult to say because we would have had such a vastly different team.

I think everything worked out perfectly for LA. Paul/Kobe/Bynum would have been nice, but there's no guarantee we get Howard. Let's say we do though...

Then we've got Paul/Kobe/Howard on the same team. That's a nightmare for any team ever and we've got two of the league's premier players in their prime. In 2 years we're still cleared of major contracts and we've got about 10 million to go find them a running mate. Give them about 2-3 years and the Lakers probably build another Championship team.

However, with the way things worked out I think our team has an equal, if not greater, shot of winning short-term and they have a similar ability to work in the long-term. Considering the Lakers always build for now first and the future second, I think this team worked out well.

Also, remember Chris Paul can still be a Laker if the stars align in 2 years. If not, we can go sign another younger permier PG potentially in John Wall or Brandon Jennings or someone like that.

As much as i like CP3 and that hes the best PG in the league and will end up one of the top in NBA history...i would take Nash & Pau together over just CP3 but that depends on who would end up being our starting PF bc t wouldnt be Odom. I think keeping Pau was huge for us and not sure CP3 + ? is better than Nash + Pau.

CP3 would make one of the best backcourts with him and Kobe. But Pau is key bc him and Dwight can switch on D and still be good and also Pau can play Center really well which is also key.

I know right Pau got over 17 ppg last season no disrespect to Nash but anyone were to be left out I would it be him with 12 ppg and 10 assists a game but anyway We Do HAVE A BIG 4 And People Need to Really start to Reconize that

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

this

as far as i know, nash, kobe, and dwight never had a meeting 2-3 years ago and decided to team up and join the lakers in a few years. nash was rarely even part of the rumours about coming to LA and dwight at one point didn't even want to come to LA. nice try mr. wade
