Desperate times call for desperate measures. They actually played pretty hard tonight, and stiil lost to the Cavs.
Losing to a 10-32 Verajao-less Cavs team after being blown out a second time by a poor Detroit team, I think qualifies as desperate times.
Time to do somthing drastic: trade the Captain for Gasol, or in other words, Paul for Pau.http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=aafkwm6
Last night there was a thread on trading Rondo for Gasol.
I'd rather give them Pierce than Rondo,though, because we could dump Bass on them and get some nice peices back in addition to all that Gasol brings: inside-out game, great passing,excellent pick and roll or pick and pop, rebounding, blocking shots
Gasol's value to the Lakers and in trade is at an all time low for 3 reasons:
1.Gasol's sporadic play this year due to injury
2. Gasol being relegated to the bench and deeply in D'Antoni's doghouse
3. the $$$ he is owed this year and next
Pierce's contract is far more valuable to the Lakers, and Pierce is a huge haul (hometown boy, championship pedigree, etc).
That's why the Lakers would be forced to swallow Bass and give us some decent pieces in return.
Lakers get PP, BB
Celtics get Gasol, Earl Clark, Jordan Hill (injured) and Sacre
Now we are a lot bigger and younger, and we get to keep all the younguns.
