The coaches would've made it difficult anyway around it. I agree there. I think if the Lakers would've landed CP3, they still would've landed Howard. They would still have an improved Artest. We wouldn't be worrying about how to move Pau right now. We wouldn't need Kobe to be the playmaker. Not to mention all the people's feelings that got hurt with that trade too.... Looking back on things, that was really the beginning of the end.
