I hope so.
So i guess all we can do now is sit here and hope...a) Kobe elaborates on what he said and b) management to come out and say "they will talk to West".
What really hurts is if we were to have West, we cant have him until AFTER the draft which handcuffs us from making any deal with those draft picks...unless maybe that Artest deal?
