The Lakers traded a great young player in Eddie Jones prior to Kobe's 3rd season as it became evident they could no longer keep the Mamba out of the starting lineup. This move hurt many Lakers fans but opened the door for Kobe to become one of the best players in the league. Bryant and Jones not only played the same position, but Jones was a lockdown defender, great shooter and fearless posterizer (ask Shawn Bradley). He was a fan favorite as chants of "EDDIE" " EDDIE" "EDDIE" frequently echoed the Great Western Forum. The Lakers currently boast several core youngsters thatseem to have all star potential. Assuming a move needs to be made to access the greatest possibly potential of these players, who should the Lakers look to move? Who is that one that Magic and Rob need to make extra room for? These are good problems to have. Only this time, the choice isn't so obvious.
