assuming kobe waved his no trade clause. how would the pistons/lakers have done?
kobes contract at the time was 18 million
the 2 core players from the pistons would have obviously been richard hamilton ( 10 million ) and teyshaun prince ( 8 million )
new look pistons
PG - Chauncey Billups
SG - Rodney Stuckey
SF - Kobe Bryant
PF - Antonio Mcdeyes
C - Rasheed Wallace
new look lakers
PG - jordan farmar ( no way fisher comes back without kobe there )
SG - Richard Hamilton
SF - Teyshaun Prince
PF - Lamar Odom
C - Andrew Bynum ( with an alternate reality, bynum might not have been injured the same day or at all in 07-08 which might have prevented them from going after a trade for pau due to kwame sucking as a starter )
phil probably retires or goes to coach the pistons since he only coaches guys like kobe/jordan/shaq
not enough star power in LA for phil.
bynum assumes the role as #1 option and becomes a laker legend averaging 25ppg for many years
predict both teams records... and outcome over the next few years
