And thus the final link to the championship Lakers teams of the early 2000's is gone. I miss those days.
Devean was criminally underused in the last season, especially during the playoffs, since he was (as aforementioned) the only Laker other than Kobe with championship experience. I would have much rather seen the ball in his hands than Smush Parker's or Kwame Brown's.
I really hated this trade up until the moment it was learned that the Raef Contract of Doom might finally be exported, and somehow to someone not named Isiah Thomas. Still hope they trade Telfair, but, at worst, they let him walk in another year.
