If you were Mitch and you went back in time before the trade deadline, would you have traded Bynum for Melo?

You do not trade your defensive anchor for a perimeter offensive minded player. I would of done it if we got NeNe back in the trade, or if we can get some "secretive" guarantee from Dwight that he will join us in the near future, but yet again, salary will be an issue.

KOBE. #VINO. BRYANT.

Yes I would.

A Kobe-Anthony-Gasol trio, would be a solid foundation for the future.

With Mike Brown in the house teaching defense, it would be nice to have three guys who can score on anyone.

How would Kobe-Anthony-Gasol be solid for the future?

Did Gasol and Kobe gain the secrets of the fountain of youth from Melo?

If Pau Gasol hadn't fallen off the face of the Earth, I would have done it.

No, Melo does not provide the secrets of the fountain of youth. However, he is a top 15 player in the league, and perhaps the most gifted offensive player in the league, and he would be the no. 1 guy on the lakers, when Kobe starts to decline.

Also, the Bynum, Gasol, Kobe trio didn't work this year. Why should we believe it will next year. Melo played very well in the postseason in NY, depite being without Amare and Chauncey.

I would prefer Howard or CP3, though.

I cannot stand 'Melo. He's an offensive threat, but that's about it. I can't understand why he's called a "superstar". That term should be reserved for past players like Barkley, Hakeem, Magic, Bird, (of course) MJ. Or current players like Kobe, D-Howard, Durant, or (despite how much I hate him) Lebron.

If we were to add 'Melo to the Lakers it would've been a hindrance, not an addition to a team. And the loss of a center would've been even more devastating. The ONLY way I would've done a trade like that is if I were trying to immediately re-package 'Melo to another team for a player that would've been an upgrade for us.

Anyone remember when Rasheed Wallace was sent to the Hawks for ONE GAME? It would've been funny to see 'Melo in uniform for a single game.. then bye bye.
