p.s. We may not have seen the prime amare yet, so i accept that as well.



Prime Shaq and Prime Amare would only be second to David Robinson and Tim Duncan (98-99)

I am not so sure of that. Tim and David were great because David was willing to take a back seat to Tim and become a defense beast. I don't see a prime shaq doing that.

As I mentioned, Duncan and Robinson (implied) were probably the best front line, at least since the early 90's.

But there would be no hope against defending Shaq and Amare while both on the floor.

Even when the Lakers had Shaq and Mailman (before his knee injury), they were very difficult to defend. Remember their 18-3 start?

Shaq and Amare at their prime would have no match, unless you had Rodman and Olajuwon at their prime.

Anyway, this thread has completely derailed out of topic.:offtopic:

Anyway, back to the original question, no I dont think any 20/10 PF. Gasol fits the triangle perfectly, he can hit jumpers, create his own shot, passes well, and plays team ball. I dont think the Lakers would be doing this well with a Randolph or Jamison

That is a very difficult question to answer. Fortunately we don't have to answer it because we have Gasol. I don't think Gasol is the BEST PF out there, but he fits the Lakers system to a tee. That is all that really matters.

I think the one guy who would fit the best would be Lebron.

Speaking of that. Stephen A Smith has mentioned that it should not surprise anyone if Kobe and Lebron end up playing together in the future.
