I think he would have helped the Lakers to be a better team this year, but could not have pushed them over the top. All in all I'm not disappointed he joins Detroit.
i did NOT want webber on the lakers.
lakers current issues are defense. we have enough forwards on this team as it is and i don't think webber defensively would make a difference.
the main reason i didn't want him is partly what elementally said about karma.
his karma is not of a winner. i just think that whatever team he ends up on won't win at the end.
