The season is coming up - does kobe play or not?
If kobe plays here are the scenarios
1 It will be a MEDIA CIRCUS The media will be horrindus question after question will be asked to kobe or question after question will be asked towards his teammates about kobe just imagine the distraction it will cause and plus kobe probably will not be focused 100%
If kobe doesn't play here are the scenarios
1 The dream package for mitch kupcheck will not be there Shaq,Payton,Malone and kobe and to be truly honest the oppurtunity will be lost without kobe the lakers probably don't win the championship
For the best for the lakers it is best for kobe not to play it will be too much of a distraction for his teammates the media circus will be too much and will take its toll thru a 82 game season plus playoffs i can't see it happening and if kobe does play does he play 82 game season skipping games here skipping games there is that best for the lakers wouldn't you want someone else in there to build chemistry with and also the pressure on his wife and family if he intends to play and 82 game season all together will be a bit much....
so all you laker fans i think its best to keep as much attention away from the team and if kobe plays it will be a media circus beyond belief..
you are right for the media circus. But to be honnest I think it will be a circus even if Kobe doesn't play!
My opinion is that Kobe will play all the games if the trial allows him to do so. What happen now is like a small "dead" for him and not playing would be a second one. Sure his personal and familly life is way more important than basketball but basketball is a huge part of his balance as well.
This guy is a winner and wants to carry on. Maybe he won't be focused 100% but playing basketball will probbaly relax him a bit. We will see. What I think is when he is found not guilty (hopefully.......) then he will be stronger than ever and this story will be forgotten quickly, at least by the fans.
THE LAKERS WANT A CHAMPIONSHIP MORE THAN ANYTHING
IF WE HAVE TO FACE THE MEDIA CIRCUS TO WIN A RING,
WE SHAL DO SO
AND KOBE WONT WANNA DISAPOINT PAYTON AND MALONES FIRST YEAR AND I THINK IN A WAY PLAYING COULD MAYBE TAKE KOBES MIND OFF THINGS U KNOW?
SO YEA I THINK KOBE SHOULD PLAY!!!!!!!!!!
