On this day in Lakers history...

I'm not saying Dwight Howard is coming today (really, I'm not), but the gentle echoes of yesteryear say it would make some sense. Via NBA.com's "This Date in History" Page:

"June 16, 1975: The Milwaukee Bucks traded Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and reserve center Walt Wesley to the Los Angeles Lakers for center Elmore Smith, forward David Meyers, guard Brian Winters and swingman Junior Bridgeman."

(Incidentally, nobody ever talks about Wesley, who played one pretty productive game in purple and gold, scoring four points in only seven minutes. Very efficient!)
