Easily the Gasol Trade.

Lakers gave up Kwame.

Celtics gave up Al Jefferson

KG trade was not a steal...

As far as I remember, I say the Dennis Rodman trade was beyond robbery... They got him for a stiff Will Perdue, WTF...

I'd say they are about equal.

Jefferson is nice, but Gasol's going to eventually be better. Gasol is the type of player who will be able to initiate an offense and pass from the post...a lot like his brother.
Gooden>> Lamar Odom. Mo Williams>> Ray Allen>> Gasol. Nene= Gasol.

KG + Ray Allen = Championship

They probably don't get to the finales if they only get KG

2 things

first off thats a what if the only thing we do know is KG was traded to boston and in year 1 he finished 3rd in MVP voting, one defensive player of the year, and won the NBA title

second ray allen was non existent in the eastern conference playoffs believe me they could have advanced without him i mean people began double teaming off of him he was that bad

Not the whole playoffs you're crazy^
there were defintely games where he was like a ghost out there,
but without both of them Boston wouldn't be the champs

ray allen was the best celtic in the NBA finals and game's 5 and 6 of the ECF

before that he was arguably the worst player with playing time and definately the worst in the starting line-up

Considering the Garnett deal was pure collusion, I don't even put them in the same class.

Also, you have to look contract wise. Grizzlies got a fat expiring in Kwame while Wolves had to absorb Wally...whom they were luckily able to deal.

The Lakers deal was not as bad as the media makes it out to be for the Grizz.

Exactly. I don't even want to get started...

And I agree, the media looks at it based on talent. I believe Lakers helped out Grizz for what they were looking for. I am not going to say it wasn't a steal, but it did provide them with cap space.
