Ticker reports: Kobe Bryant averaged a staggering 51.0 points in helping the Los Angeles Lakers to a 3-0 record. He became just the second player in league history to score 50 or more points in four consecutive games, joining Chamberlain, who holds the record with seven set in December 1961.
Charlotte Bobcats forward Gerald Wallace won Eastern Conference honors. Wallace averaged 20.3 points, 7.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 2.33 blocks and 1.33 steals in helping the Bobcats split four games.

He would be a monster in Memphis on the fastbreak. Mike Miller and Kyle Lowry can create plays well and he would slam it down at least 4 times a game. His defense along with the rest of the team would create a great combo with Gasol.
In Orlando he could be a crazy combo with Howard on paper. I don't know if he and Howard would fit because they have different tempos.
Milwaukee he could bring their franchise back around maybe. If they got GW and Mo Williams stays and Bogut/Villanueva continue to devolop and Michael Redd continues to play well next season they would have a decent team. Injuries have brought that team down a lot.
I think he might stay with the Bobcats though. I think he should jump ship and play for a contender. Winning championships is more important than getting paid an extra 3 to 5 mil every year. But thats just my oppinion. I'm sure the money would be tempting.
