After Shaq left in 2004, Kobe was left searching for his new sidekick.  After a couple years with no avail, they traded for Pau Gasol.  The Lakers traded Pau’s brother, Marc Gasol, to the Grizzlies in exchange for Pau.  While Marc has certainly turned into a great player, you cannot possibly say the Lakers made a bad trade.  Kobe and Pau played great together, and got along much better than Kobe and Shaq did.  Pau helped Kobe earn his 4th and 5th rings, and joined the list of great championship post players in Lakers’ history.
