And Gasol certainly is no bum(or at least wasn't back then 08-10).
it wasnt bad... but it wasnt great
odom never made an allstar team ( bosh made 8, rodman is a legendary defensive anchor/rebounder, worthy is a HOF legend )
bynum in 2009 and 2010 didnt even play. he averaged like 5ppg and sat 4th q's during those 2 title runs
ariza is a nobody... career 9/4/1 average man... solid defender. crap everywhere else IMO
fish hit clutch shots. but he was a bad defender, old, slow at the time. kobe was the pg and sg for the lakers. fish just hit a few spot up threes and never ran the offense
phil is great... but pat riley isnt? phil coached mike too...
spo is alright. but they won a title against scott brooks. both coaches werent really legendary
not too many teams win without a good coach
