Don't think we would have been able to deal for Kittles as we would have used the money on Bryant, but we could most likely have Richardson at the backup offguard pending we would have matched his offer sheet with Phoenix, and don't think we would have kept Moore, and still have dealt Wilcox, along with losing Simmons, and waiving Brunson.i wonder how it would've looked present day...hmm:
CE: Chris Kaman | Johan Petro | Josh Boone
PF: Elton Brand | Sean Williams | Melvin Ely
SF: Corey Maggette | Quinton Ross
SG: Kobe Bryant | Quentin Richardson | Guillermo Diaz
PG: Shaun Livingston | Marko Jaric | Jared Jordan
Petro was the 05 draft, Diaz was the 2nd rounder in 06, wouldn't have gotten Paul Davis, due to still having Ely, which leads us to having one 06 2nd. Wilcox dealt for an 06 1st as well imo, which is why Boone is on the roster.
But that digresses from the point off the topic. The answer is simple, Celtics seem to want to win, while on the other hand, Lakers FO seems content with just making the PO's and cashing in.
