I wouldn't. KG will likely go down as the better player, but Gasol fits our team better and is significantly younger.

I certainly wouldn't complain if this hypothetical trade went down, obviously, but for long-term and practical purposes, I'd rather have Gasol.


Sure, you can factor in age, but in terms of overall skill set, Garnett actually fits this team better, especially as Bynum develops his post game.

Also, Garnett would pretty much solve all our defensive woes that come whenever teams put in their small lineups, for Garnett can guard every single position with ALl NBA team defense.
Gooden>> Lamar Odom. Mo Williams>> Ray Allen>> Gasol. Nene= Gasol.

KG is such a chump he picks on little guys

he never picks on big guys and when he does like zaza pachulia they come back at him

KG almost crapped his pants when that happened

KG is simply a bully not tough but a bully

but it is undeniable he is an excellent defensive anchor

which bynum could be but with phils garbage defensive scheme he can't because there are so many double teams he has to go help out and there are wide open dunks

Wow, that's pretty weird for KG to do. Crawl on the floor? :huh:

He needs to have his national team mindset. Gasol just seems much more passionate when playing for his country.

I think he's busting his butt for the Lakers every night too...

No argument there. I'd probably call comparisons between the rest of their overall skills a push.

the only difference is Pau is an effective center for us, I think he fits better, but KG would fit very well, and maybe odom could play with him and bynum on the same floor at the same time
