2. Who cares about robbing Kobe??? LOL...Are you insane? Why should we even have him on the team then? Just for show??? These kinds of comments make me sick. Kobe just led us through the tough Western Conference and took us to the finals without much help, and now you don't care if he loses the little help that he has???
3. "I could care the less if the Lakers win a ring in the next 3 years if they'll win 6 straight after that"....... Nothings guaranteed, especially not 6 straight rings. Heck, making it to the playoffs or finals isn't even guaranteed. Bad things can happen.
My point....we just made it to the finals without our starting C. Our window of opportunity is wide open RIGHT NOW especially with Bynum coming back, not a few years later. If we're gonna trade LO, Farmar and Turiaf, it needs to be for immediate help, not for a rookie who may or may not even pan out.[/b]
1)Yes, trading Odom to get Mayo if we keep Kobe too would be stupid. If you want to build for the future you get rid of all of them, but considering we're close to it, I don't see why we'd do that. You can get a real SF though for Odom so keeping him would be stupid.
2)After the huge LOL at the "little help he has" I have to say that I care more about how many rings the Lakers can win on the long run than Kobe's legacy. So yes. And if my comments make you sick, just carry a paper bag when you read them. I'm sorry for not giving so much thought about the feelings of the people who make 20 million dollars to put a ball through a hoop. He's played to play basketball so he should shut up and do it. This is like me working for a company and complaining about the yearly results and the P\L ratios when I have the biggest wage there.
3)And yes, things are guaranteed. It amuses me when you people think that worse teams beat better teams all the time. If you have the best team you win, if you don't, you lose. And yes, I agree we shouldn't chase rookies, but keeping Odom to play the SF is just as dumb.
