Put some respek on his name.
He definitely wasn't a top 10 player before, on or after the Lakers but you're kidding yourself if you think people didn't think highly of him then. Dude brought his team to the playoffs THREE times in a row with a bunk squad in the west. Y'all definitely wasn't getting no slouch which is why everyone was crying bloody murder that the Lakers got another franchise's top player without having to give up Odom (who at the time was considered your guy's second best player). You guys were definitely the favorites after that move.
