Lakers Got Pau Gasol

The Los Angeles Lakers got Pau Gasol in a trade. Grizzlies got Kwame Brown, Javaris Critenton and a first round draft pick in exchange. The whole NBA Community were shocked since there are no rumors about this trade before it happened. Fantasy people are looking for these new acquisition and predict that things would be the same for the players involved. Pau Gasol will still get his numbers plus a boost in assist since he will now have Kobe Bryant who can pass on while Kwame and Javaris will still play the same role for the Grizzlies and expecting Mike Miller, Rudy Gay and Juan Carlos Navarro to step up. Because of the trade, the Lakers becomes an instant NBA Finals contender for the west. Looks like a modern Celtics vs. Lakers matchup could be great deal. Can't wait this things to happen.

The Griz suck. They played in Dallas not too long ago and they SUCK. I think their record is what, 3 wins and over 40 losses? I may be exaggerating a bit, but they've sucked for quite some time. I also heard the Lakers gave the Griz over 2 million in cash for Pau as well. Navarro is about the only decent player the Griz have.

I think the grizzlies are back to their 1995 team. Its disappointing because they've been a playoff contender for the last years and now they're going back to what they've started. They should really have a superstar in the lineup for them to go back in the race.
