Gilbert’s Blog: For the last couple weeks people have been calling me saying, “Are you coming back to L.A.?”
I’m like, “Yeah, I am … NOT.”
“Why would I be coming back to L.A.? Don’t you know the season is getting ready to start?”
And they’re like, “No, they’re talking about you and Kobe getting traded for each other.”
And I’m like, “Oh, that’s what’s up. Sounds nice … NOT.”
Nothing against getting traded, but that would be a dumb thing on the part of the team who is accepting me because, don’t they know I’m a free agent? What that means is, if you lose somebody who you really want and you come get me back and I leave too … TA-DAH! That means you have nothing.
So take my name out of it because whoever gets me, there ain’t a guarantee that I’m staying.
Y’all go ahead and take my name out. To all of my friends back home who want me to become a Laker: If you have NBA LIVE 08 you can fantasy draft me, because otherwise I don’t think that’s happening any time soon.
