My dreams are all I have buddy. But the real part about I said is THE LAKERS NEED TO TRY TO GET THE YOUNG FELLA!!!!
He would be nice, but Pek is no slouch and I just don't think Gasol makes the team worlds better.2) Gasol really seems like a perfect fit for them. An unselfish post player to help initiate offense that has played with Rubio before.
Love's locked up for a couple more years and he already has a roster to compete. If he's not happy, he can go kick rocks.3) Keeps Love happy...which is the major thing.
Who knows what you're really getting though? He's a better player than what he's currently producing, but he also is regressing with age. I'd rather use assets/cap on a quality wing without an injury history (alluding to Roy & AK).4) Gasol's large contract comes off the books in 2 years and it can be re-negotiated for much less (not many quality players will make less over time) or it will become a large expiring that Minnesota can use.
He's also a skilled 7 footer which bodes well for aging, but he's going to regress (whereas Pek will improve) and there are no guarantees as far as him re-signing for cheap.5) Gasol is not old. 32. There is no reason he cannot play for 5-6 years at a relatively high level.
So does Adam Morrison6) He has championship experience...which should be very important for a team like Minnesota.
I don't really see how any of these teams get what they want for where they are. Yes, Pek is a good player but do you want to have to re-sign him if you're Charlotte or would you rather keep your high pick? Denver isn't looking to re-build. LA isn't robbing anyone here so they won't go for it (even though Gallinari is a nice player and plays some 4) and Minnesota has no reason to give up a #2 pick in his sophomore year, a productive center, a nice backup PG and 2 future firsts to make a slight upgrade at a position they don't have an obvious need.Anyway, I understand if you disagree. You watch the team more than me I am sure.
As far as the comment that everyone gets worse. I'm not sure what that means? Gets worse now or in the future? If its now...then how do the Bobcats get worse getting Pekovic for Mullens?
Not trying to be rude either, I just thought it was ludicrous what you proposed the Wolves give up.

SMH, minny fans coming up with 3-4 team trades all for Derrick Williams.
No one is going through that kind of trouble for him.
The Art of The 6 Inch Hook by Sugar Ray Robinson. He could ko you with his left hook only 6 inches from his opponents jaw. Greatest of all time!
I haven't seen one trade proposed in this thread by a minny fan...
I think you're wrong.
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
