Murphy still has that disgusting contract. I really doubt that J.O and Murphy are better than Kwame,Odom and Bynum. I rather have Tinsley than Murphy.

I'm sure Kobe will be full of understanding for the Lakers FO once he's told that his buddy JO who wanted to play with him isn't coming because the Lakers once again didn't want to part ways with some of their players.
Oh yeah, Kobe sure will understand

They dont have to get JO...

I would be happy with signing a center with MLE and then trading Kwame for Artest...If any1 remembers that span right before the brawl Artest was absolutely killing it on both offense and defense...


Farmar
Kobe
Artest
Lamar
Bynum or MLE or Mihm

Then you could trade Bynum if something good pops up or you can keep him if he develops but at least you can see where he is at to start next season...Kobe should try to get Bynum 5 straight 30 point games but just drawing mad heads and dishing off for easy dunks...Then the Lakers should trade him as quick as possible..

Artest will be a Laker..I can feel it ...It will be like Phil with Rodman all over again..Plus Kobe has been working on his quickness and defense a lot this summer...Put that with Artest on the wing and Farmar is no slough they could have a sick perimeter defense....

Bynum+ others for Camby
Kwame for Artest
MLE for PG

I'd be happy with that.

The Lakers are desperate. Every GM in the league knows that. They"ll not going to get Camby or Artest for Kwame despite his expiring contract, get real.
They'd need to throw in much more and perhaps take on some more big contracts like the one of Kenny Thomas in case of an Artest trade.

I think Kobe made his point pretty clear. Let's see how long this whole thing stalls, I'm sure we"ll hear something from Kobe soon.

I'd rather see Kobe traded to the Bulls, then to trade our entire frontcourt + LO for "I'll give you 40 games a season" Jermaine O'Neal, and screw ourselves for the next few years as a result.

With JO, we win 2 games vs Phx on our way out of the playoffs instead of 1. WOW.

Don't be suprised if within 24-48 hours we hear from someone from the ESPN that there's a new change of developement regarding Kobe. Don't be suprised at all.

Could the Lakers get a guy like Zach Randolph without Giving up Odom...

Lakers should sign Varejoa...Im not kidding...He can catch, play decent defense and dunk the ball. That much more then could be said about KWame...

I disagree with that. I think Kobe + JO is hella lot better and more balanced than what we have now and it's a whole different set of dynamics and everything else would get so balanced out that the Lakers would become a much better team.

But anyway, who cares what I think.

What matters is what Kobe thinks. That's the interesting part of the story.
