Well, Kobe is the best in the league. He is the most developed and experienced out of all the top players. You can have a team like that when you have a player like Kobe/Jordan. Not all the top players are equal. You can't just bunch a group of them together and expect it to go perfect. Kobe is good all around. There isn't another player like him atm. Yeah, you have explosive players but everyone else has flaws. Kobe doesn't have many weaknesses because he's solid all around. That said, I believe Dwight Howard is going to L.A. to be with Kobe. Weather is perfect for him and Phil Jackson already has a game plan mastered around their style. Chris Paul would be a good trade to the knicks if he decides to take pay cut because he isn't the same after his injury. I'd rather have Deron Williams traded to the knicks. If we can't get either, billups/douglas is fine but we need a deeper bench with solid defenders.
