Power Shift to Lakers?

A great trade was pulled off on Friday involving Pau Gasol being sent to the Lakers. Gasol was traded along with a draft pick to LA in exchange for basically Kwame Brown, who's been a bust in the NBA. Kobe is definitely happy with the move because he now has more star power in addition to himself, and Lamar Odom. Gasol brings about 18 points, 9 rebounds and a few blocks per game which will make for a strong front court. Many analysts now say the Lakers are among the best of the West.

The Grizzlies will clearly be in rebuild mode now. They have several young stars on the team, including emerging star, Rudy Gay. With the trade they will be able to clear up extra salary money once Kwame's contract is up. They can also use the extra draft picks to add to their team.

So will this make the Lakers the best in the West? It's tough to say, but as long as they keep superstar Kobe Bryant happy, all is good in Hollywood.
