Well last year he was a chucker, not anymore. There's so many things wrong with this, it's not all about scoring. Who's going to be the facilitator of the triangle (Odom does this), who's going to be our main rebounder? Who's going to guard mobile big men like Dirk, Okur? How does it make us better defensively? How is Carter going to fit in with the Lakers? If Jason Kidd can't control his chucking, I wouldn't put money on it that Kobe could.
This is like the Miami Heat having Wade on their team and trading Shaq for Joe Johnson.
