OK have been in the car and hearing the Melo meeting is still going. Whether Melo is the "right" "perfect" big name to sign or not, he certainly would be intriguing and exciting to watch play with Kobe, Randle, Marshall or whoever "might" beat him out for the starting position and the best of the "in LA at least for a short time, but prety good players" that Mitch will assemble this year. Love to have 3 or 4 back from last year that are on the bubble.
All that said, Why The F*** was Kobe not able to have his schedule with planes and whatever else…..work out to be here in this meeting? Such a letdown if they want this guy. I am good if this is some last minute change, bumping the time of the meeting up to where it screwed Kobe's timing and logistics up. Is this what happened? Or did Kobe just not get it done at his end? This REALLY disappoints me he is not in there with them. If this is a guy HE feels he can actually work well with and compete with. I trust him. So, WTF happened….why is he not in there. All I heard in the car was now he is going to meet with Melo, last thing after the Knicks. FAIL. Should have been today. What happened please, if anyone knows real quick?
