Yeah, let's trade away a top 5 - 10 player all time, and still the best closer in the game. That'll happen.

And also a franchise icon.

Oh, and he has a no-trade clause so he could handpick the team he wanted to go to and could even pull the plug on a deal that netted us too high a return (thus rendering his new team too weak in his opinion).

BRILLIANT PLAN, BUCH! :bang: :bang: :bang:

Ric Bucher must have forgotten that Kobe has a no-trade clause. He also seems to forget that if a club wants him, they would have to blow up their roster to get him. Kobe isn't going anywhere.

Even if that thought was possible, Kobe's no trade clause makes him nearly untradeable.

so Ric Bucher and his douchery can just go away.

ahh ESPN with its desire to dismantle the Lakers at all means possible... I see what ya'll are doing over there...
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

Kobe could always waive the NTC if he really wanted to get traded. But even then, his destination team would need to send back literally half their team match his salary. Or he could go to a doormat team with tons of cap space and young talent/picks to send back.

Why would he do either thing?

Bucher is just trying to stir the pot....everyone's talking about him right now.

It is kind of incredible really. How do I get a sportswriting gig, again? Oh, I'd have to sell my soul to the devil (i.e. BSPN). Sad that credible sportswriters are canned from the LA Times, but idiots like Plaschke and TJ Slimers are still there spewing nonsense. Then you have these numbskulls on BSPN like Butcher, et al, with big mouths and no brains. It sickens me. And they must be getting paid a pretty decent salary, too. Certainly more than I do. :disagree:

Ric Bucher - June 2007

I guarantee Kobe will not wear Laker uniform again



Dude should just get over it.
Ah, women. They make the highs higher and the lows more frequent.

That bold bit is the most infuriating thing isn't it? I mean wow...

I know everyone says the old cliché that you can't beat father time, but you know what, Kobe Bryant is giving the old man a run for his money and this idiot thinks we should trade him.

Then like you said, He gets paid more than a good portion of this nation to spout **** like this?

Why would Jim Buss consider doing something he lacks the ability to do?

The only thing the Lakers can do without Kobe's consent is to exercise the amnesty clause on him. They'd still have to pay him the remainder of his contract (minus whatever token salary he made with his next game).

Kobe's cap number would come off the Lakers payroll as a result.....

And for all that, the Lakers would still not be under the cap. And there would be fanbase revolt to deal with on top of it.

Didn't Bryant once blow snot in his hand then rubbed it in Bucher's hair? If so then there's your motive. :man1:

I would actually consider it more likely that the Lakers use the amnesty clause on Kobe than trade him.

Or phrased in other words, trading Kobe is dang near impossible. Have to remember no team will give up so much for an aging superstar who doesn't have many years left at his current level. Further, what if the Lakers don't want to take back so much salary for Kobe given the new luxury taxes? Given those taxes and that the 2013-14 season is the first year they kick in, if the Lakers are in a breakup mode that summer, then I could see them letting Kobe go in order to rebuild around Bynum. Let me modify that by saying I think it's more likely they use the clause on MWP or Gasol. And I've thought it's possible the team never uses it; they'll find other ways to unload these players.

His reasoning: "then Kobe retires and you got nothing left?"
How about having one of the greats deservingly retiring as a Laker, having played his entire career here... oh and a lot of cap space to work with?
