Lakers trade for Gasol

Holy smokes, the Lakers essentially sent Kwame Brown to Memphis for Pau Gasol.

Highway robbery! I know there are some draft picks and Javaris Crittenton involved, but come on.

The Lakers starting five: Fisher, Kobe, Odom, Gasol, Bynum (after he comes back from his knee injury).

That's just scary. Sure, Gasol has kind of fallen off statistically this year, but he still goes for 19 and 9 a night. I'd take that any day. And for Kwame? In a heartbeat.

What the heck were you thinking, Memphis? If I were a Grizzly fan I'd be incensed right now.

My thoughts exactly. I suppose they could have some extremely high hopes for those two draft picks. But seriously, wow.

Worst. Trade. Ever. Oh wait besides the Jason Collins-Stromile Swift trade.
