Mike Brown sucks, because Kobe ignores his gameplan and plays his iso hero ball all the time.
Bynum sucks, because being the best center and shooting at high % and still getting not enough touches.
Pau sucks, because not getting and shooting the ball enough due to Kobe ballhogging the ball.
From last year's Mavs series and this year's Thunder series, we see that Kobe is no longer our saver, he is our killer now. His selfish and unclutch plays are completely showed in Game 2 & 4. He solely destroyed Lakers.
To further extend Lakers' future, we should keep Bynum(young+dominant) and Pau(one of best PFs) instead of Kobe(old+selfish+unclutchness). For me, I would like to trade Kobe for Melo+Lin or Lawson+Faried.
