I don't agree with Jennings here and let's not focus on what he tweeted.
Now, the Lakers played at an elite level from 2008-2010 considering the three finals appearances. Who do you credit for their success in those three runs? IMO I think Gasol was the most significant in terms of impact to their playoff successes. While I do credit Kobe, I don't think the Lakers would have achieved much of their success without Gasol. For the sake of it, let's disregard Phil Jackson and focus more on the players.
