I'm a lakers fan for life. I cannot follow or even watch any other game were the lakers aren't playing. But I am also a kobe fan. Whereever he goes, I'll support him and watch him. I'll root for the lakers and the team kobe is on. Kobe is just an exciting basketball player.
They dynasty is over, and we've been workin on the KobeBall formula for a few seasons now. It's not working out. At this point I'd be okay with having a couple young stars and a solid group that would grow together, possibly into champions somewehre down the line.
Mostly (F). I'll have no interest in watching games anymore except for when Kobe plays at Staples to watch him destroy whatever team the Lakers put on the floor. In general though, this pretty much ends my interest in the NBA. I moved here just before the Shaq/Kobe championships and that was my introduction to the team and the league. Those teams brought me some great memories and good times even though I was never a big Shaq fan (I despise lazy people), but Kobe's talent is what makes the game worth watching.
If Kobe leaves then I really have nobody to root for and I don't have enough interest to follow another team that he's on as closely as I did the Lakers. Since nobody else is left from those championship squads, other than watching the occasional sunday ABC HD game of whatever teams are on, I imagine I'd be pretty much done with being an NBA fan.
I'm a Kobe fan. The Lakers front office is way too messed up to be a Laker fan. They only care about making money, not winning. If they cared about winning Kobe wouldn't be asking for a trade. If they cared about winning you wouldn't be out in the first round of the playoffs. If they cared about winning there would have been a major trade by now. The Lakers can do 1 of two things. Start to care about winning again and make a trade to help the team and calm Kobe or trade Kobe and suck for years to come. If they choose the second option five years from now everybody is going to be making the same posts it's just the names will be different. Instead of how do we get KG in here it will be a different name in KG's spot. The only trade scenario that looked decent was the one that involved the Wizards and you guys ended up with Arenas. But he could always opt out in two years (which he will because he has a big pay day coming) and then go wherever he wants to, which leaves you in a worse position than you are now.
