haha, i thought i was the only one having this idea in my head. for those who say they won't trade kobe for LeBron right now is not a laker fan, they're kobe fans and his fans only. imagine having LeBron and Bynum together and maybe flip gasol for a 1st class young point guard. man oh man, our franchise is set for the next 10 years.



complete and utter disrespect for the man that has brought so much joy to laker nation for 13 seasons(and counting). Kobe has committed so much of his personal time to bring us 4 championships, he's worked so hard every off season to make sure he is in tip top shape to dominate the league. that would so jacked up if Buss just decided to ship him out. Kobe is a Laker for life, and he's earned his stay. get out of here with that lebron crap, what has he ever done for us? and most importantly what has he ever won?

and get out of here with that "kobe fans and his fans only", Kobe is too beloved in LA to just throw away. oh and what's this talk about flipping Gasol? if kupcake traded my two favorite players away, man is he going to get a nasty call :mad1:



oh give me a break, i'll take a laker dynasty for the next 10 years over a short two three year title run in a heart beat. and trust me, if kupchak has the deal to swap out kobe for lebron right now on his table, he'll definitely take a long hard look at it. it's a business, kobe has done a lot for this franchise over the last 13 years but when it comes to set up your franchise for the next 10 year, our front office should never hesitate. but who am i kidding, there is no way cleveland would ever do this trade unless lebron forces them to and kobe agree with it since he has the no trade clause, so chill out people.

Did we not just win a championship last year?

How about we clone Kobe and then just have him for another 15 years?

LOL if yall think management wouldn't trade Kobe for Bron in a heartbeat if they had that offer.

Any team in the league would trade the best player on their team for Bron. Most teams would trade several of their best.

So lemme get this straight. In your opinion, Bron is head and shoulders above everyone else in the league and it's not close at all?

This.

I'd do it to if I were Mitch. Yes Kobe is better at this moment but Lebron is 25, never hurt, and has never had any real talent around him. Put him on this squad with Gasol, Odom, Artest and Bynum and we're straight for the next 8 years.

But would you consider everything Kobe's done for the franchise, or just boom you'd do it without question?

Frankly, I think most people would consider everything Kobe's done for the franchise... and then trade him for Bron. I mean, the guy is built like a tank, is never hurt, and is 25 years old.

This is pure fantasy talk here though.

Exactly. I think Kobe is still the better player and easily the better fit for this team. There's no way as a GM I trade Kobe for LeBron right now.

I think if we trade kobe for bron right now we'd actually have a big obstacle by facing the cavs in the finals.

I'm a fan of Chris Paul, Kevin Durant and even Brandon Jennings.

Call me crazy but I have questions about Lebron going forward. He's probably one of the most entertaining players to watch, but there will come a time his athleticism fades. And it's then he'll have to develop a consistent jump shot. But as soon as he does that, watch out.
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.

It has. Much better than previous years. He's more of a pull up shooter though. I haven't seen him really do much besides drive and pull up shots. Maybe it's because we get to watch Kobe all season long, but his shot still seems limited to me.

No, in my opinion every general manager and owner in the league would trade any one of their players for him without thinking twice. Just like I said.

As far as what I personally think, Lebron is as good as or better than any other player in the league at this time. Some he's much better than, others are close to his skill level.

Apart from his skills and abilities you have to factor entertainment value. Owners are in the business to make money. Lebron will make them lots of it, more than any other player in the league.

Kobe on the Cavs would not be a challenge to us in the playoffs. I doubt they would make it past the Celtics.

You also said most teams would trade several of their best players. Logically, you're kinda saying he's the best and nobody comes close.

And I don't disagree, Bron can make you money as an owner but doesn't Kobe have the best selling jersey? I think Bron's popularity is a little overrated too.

And Kobe on the Cavs wouldn't be a challenge to us, but it's not like Bron and the Cavs are.

sorry but Kobe is still the most popular player in the league, which is surprising considering how ESPN seems to run a smear campaign against him, and how much Lebron/Dwade they force feed us.

Kobes got 6 strong years left I'm sticking with him. People like to compare him with Jordan let the man play in his 30's and win just like MJ did.

I have a feeling theres an epic fail about to hit Lebron land.

Do you think Tyreke Evans can be interresting ? I never had a chance to see him play, butt he has preety good numbers for a rookie on an average team.

I never had the opportunity to see him play so I don't know if he can be a star in the future ?
Offseason's finished for my long sleeping nights. NBA is back !!
