There's constant rumblings on the board concerning teams like the Lakers falling into great talent because teams are willing to "hand them" great players. I'd like to start conversation and get your thoughts and others on two things:

A.) Haw many stars are traded for "equal value" as far as talent and pciks are concerned.

B.) Why some teams seem to be the recipients of this more than other. And yes I know we'll have to have a bit of a history lesson due to different CBAs and such.

I'll post my thoughts in the morning. Just want to get some conversation rolling
