They don't lack depth. Outside shooting isn't really their style in the first place. Why shoot outside when you have two giants you can dish the ball to and work your offense through? Gasol would have had the numbers of a HOF, but the titles would not have been there if he stayed with the Grizz. Plus he'd be part of a small market team and they are always overlooked. It would have been a tough sell, but an HOF bid would have been possible. But never mind the speculation. You say, Gasol couldn't do it without Kobe, but I don't see any titles on Kobe that didn't have Gasol or Shaq on the team. You severely underestimate the importance of having a skilled big man to make a title run.
