It's funny because Laker fans are thinking "why would C's do this trade?" and C's fans are thinking "why would LA do this trade?". I think this is actually a pretty good trade for both teams assuming there's some other pieces involved in the trade. The C's have shown the ability to win without their all-star PG and acquiring Gasol gives them a suddenly deep frontcourt of Gasol/KG/Bass/JO/Wilcox. It leaves huge holes for LA and Boston at the PF and PG positions, respectively. I'd love to see Steve Blake going to Bos and Bass coming to LA to fill those holes. Lakers would probably have to give up more on top of that to make the trade work though.
