Will Lakers front-line doom the Spurs?

68

The Spurs are obviously rolling right now, with the best record and point differential in the NBA. But at that level of the game, it's all about how you match-up with the other elite teams. And I just don't see how SA can handle a Bynum/Gasol/Odom rotation in the playoffs. This is not 2003; Timmy Duncan can't go 3-on-1 on the paint anymore. Unless Spurs fans believe in Splitter more than their coaching staff apparently does? I think a good move would be flipping TP for Sacramento's Jason Thompson. Thompson is a 6'11 athlete who can defend multiple front-court positions while George Hill can provide 80% of TP's contributions, and frankly, I can't imagine TP is too terribly popular in the locker room right now anyway.
