Nobody cares what he did back then at this point, everyone knows the reality of his injuries except people like yourself. No team wants to be saddled with his contract and his injuries. One of the worst contracts in the league, for whatever reason you don't understand that because you think that having several years left on his contract was a good thing.
Where did I ever notion that? Way to put words into my mouth. Lack of reading comprehension maybe.
Last time you brought up the Stoudemire/Gasol trade, here's the quote with you inferring that having 3 more years left was a good thing.

I remember when there were rumors of Bosh for Stoudemire a couple of years back. Stoudemire had one bad season and he's now valueless? His season in 2011 was elite and he has 3 more yrs left on the contract.
So nope, not really putting words in your mouth at all, and no reading comprehension problems.
meanwhile, here's your attitude on Stoudemire

So yeah I'm sure people would love to have that lol.
Weis is known for having been "posterized" by the United States' Vince Carter during a basketball game between the two teams at the 2000 Summer Olympics on September 25, 2000. After getting the ball off a steal, the 6'6" (1.98 m) Carter drove to the basket, leaped, spread his legs as he jumped over 7'2" (2.18 m) Weis, and ferociously dunked the ball. The French media dubbed the slam "le dunk de la mort": "the dunk of death." The US won the game 106-94. After USA won the game, Frederic Weiss was ordered by a judge to name his first born child Vince Carter.
Apparently Anderson is quite high on the list of players the Lakers would want to bring in if Gasol is moved.
Makes sense, but I'm not sure there's a deal to be made there. Would definitely need to bring a third team into it. I have no idea what good value would be so I'm just spitballin' here, but how about something like:
New Orleans: Asik, Terrence Jones
Los Angeles: Anderson
Maybe try and find Royce White a new home in the process?
Rival executives believe the most likely landing spot for Gasol is Toronto, which could offer Andrea Bargnani in return and bolster the Lakers' point- guard deficiency with Jose Calderon, who is backing up Kyle Lowry. CBSSports.com
Minnesota? Rival executives have long bought the notion that the Wolves want to accommodate Ricky Rubio's desire to play with Gasol. They, too, have a point guard D'Antoni covets in Ridnour, and could offer Nikola Pekovic, 2011 No. 2 pick Derrick Williams (whom coach Rick Adelman is down on), a first-round pick and filler. But unless the Lakers got Kevin Love in the deal -- which they wouldn't -- it's difficult to see how such an exchange would fit into their tiny window of opportunity to send Kobe off into the sunset with his sixth championship before he retires.

Pau Gasol is unlikely to be traded at this point because Steve Nash made the Lakers promise to keep Gasol before signing with L.A., a source told Ric Bucher.
First and foremost, the Lakers need defensive help on the wing and they need to strengthen their bench. For those reasons, league sources say D'Antoni is using whatever organizational capital he has to push for the signing of Raja Bell, whose agent, Herb Rudoy, is in the midst of buyout negotiations with the Jazz. Bell would immediately slow the wing penetration that is collapsing the Lakers' defense and exposing their rotational deficiencies on the back side. He's also a career 41 percent 3-point shooter who made a league-high 205 3-pointers in 2006-07 under D'Antoni in Phoenix. And Kobe wants him, so there's that. CBSSports.com
