Hmmm...Lakers' starting lineup is pretty much the same, the only difference is the bench (age and psychological factors aside).
Getting Dwight won't mean much if we have to give up Gasol and Bynum.
Can we acquire Dwight with the cost of Bynum only? I doubt it.
My point is that getting Howard will kill the Lakers to some extent. It's really a hit or miss. I'm leaning towards to miss side, with the Lakers' bench probably getting even worse after Dwight comes.
If they didn't even TRY to get CP3, Odom would still be here, as he's actually quite an important piece in the whole Lakers team.
So to conclude, I just want to say that Lakers are OVER.
