After analyzing these numbers it would appear as though the Lakers made the right decision for the longrun and kept the right guy; the regular season and postseason records are pretty impressive considering Kobe had very poor talent around him for three of the first five years:

Shaq: 226-184

Kobe: 34-22
Shaq: 26-19

If you are talking about choosing between the two of them, of course they made the correct choice. They could take the fading big guy who was gaining weight left and right or the 20 something 2 guard on the verge of being a mega star. If the two of them could have co-existed, how many more titles would they have won? And please don't come on here and talk about the "very poor talent" Kobe had around him. Lamar Odom was the first pick in the draft and a nice player, Butler is an all-star but couldn't function playing next to Kobe. The Lakers have taken the next step for two reasons that are connected

1) Kobe matured and realized he could not do it all by himself.
2) They got Pau Gasol.

keep in mind shaq did not play nearly that many games. u must have grabbed his team's season stats. not that big a deal, but im sure they had a slightly better record with him in the lineup than without. it would be too hard and time consuming to check tho so i cant hold it against you
