They've got championship talent and haven't been able to play .500 basketball. It would be worth paying PJ all that and more to get that team up to it's potential. I'm as far from a Laker fan as it gets but they have a phenomenal talent level and should be just as good as OKC if not better. Bryant and Howard are capable of MVP-level ball, Gasol can be an All-Star and Nash is as smart and experienced a point as the NBA has ever seen. You pay Jackson whatever he needs (FFS it's just like giving it to your sister) and go win another championship.
