Kobe pre Gasol
2005 - misses playoffs
2006 - barely makes the playoffs and chokes a 3-1 lead in the 1st round
2007 - swept in the 1st round
Kobe with Gasol
2008 - finals
2009 - Championship
2010 - Championship
Guess who led the Lakers in both plus minus and win shares in both 09 and 10?
Gasol transformed a team from first round fodder into championship caliber if that is not superstar caliber i don't know what is
