Default 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

bench

Jason Maxiell
Ronald Murray
Jarvis Hayes
Aaron Afflalo
Amir Johnson
Nazr Muhommad
Theo Ratlif


---------------------------------------


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 )

bench

sasha vujacic
vladamir radmanovic
luke walton
ronny turiaf
trevor ariza
kwame brown
maurice evans




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
