Question Should Bobcats explore Kobe Bryant deal?

May 31, 2007
Should Bobcats explore Kobe Bryant deal?

Stray thoughts from the pre-draft camp:

The Bobcats should explore any way to acquire Kobe Bryant. Since they’re one of the few NBA teams with massive room under the salary cap, they could offer the Lakers some attractive pieces and not also throw garbage the Lakers’ way to balance the deal under the cap. But even with that cap room, any offer that would turn the Lakers’ head would include the No. 8 pick and either Emeka Okafor or Gerald Wallace. (Wallace would have to be a sign-and-trade.)
By the way, Wallace’s agent, Rob Pelinka, also represents Bryant.

(Francine here--now who would seriously think that Kobe would consider, even for a split-second, coming to Charlotte? And would we even want an ego bigger than Mecklenburg county to come here and try to run the show???)

I usually agree with Rick, but this time he's gone off the deep end.

Kobe would never play in Charlotte, and personally I wouldnt want him here anyway.

He never even played in Charlotte. He got traded as soon as he was drafted.

well since kobe has that no trade clause in his contract, he can veto any trade. which he would to charlotte. kobes only concern is another ring and lets face it, the bobcats arent exactly in the hunt for a ring just yet

Kobe's ego would destroy our team plus there's no way that he wouldn't clash with MJ.

Kobe doesn't have a huge ego IMO. He is just so frustrated with the Lakers Front Office because they are slackers and suck at trying to get a trade to go down.
