OT but feel like I need to respond. Would the Lakers have even pursued Pau Gasol if not for Bynum's injury?True and they wouldn't have any if Bynum didn't get hurt, shit happens.

This trade arguably won them the 2010 title when they could run out both big men against a relatively smaller C's lineup at the end. And at the very least, Gasol's 15 & 10 averages on 50+% shooting is the high end of what Bynum would have given them in 2008.
