It took a little while, longer than we might have anticipated, but yesterday, it finally happened.

Did the Los Angeles Lakers finally land a point guard of the highest caliber? Did the Lakers pick up another star to show their intention of competing with the dynasties of youth and athleticism developing in Miami and Oklahoma City? Did they take a major step forward in putting together pieces that make sense in a post-Triangle world? The answer, in some variation, to all of these questions is yes. But none of them describe the "it" I am referring to.
