    … Ewwww, no.

    “If Kobe goes, you’ll lose a lof of fans” – NOT TRUE LAKER FANS!! There is a group of Laker fans out there that remember harder times such as when Magic retired, the years when our team consisted of Elden Cambell, Sedale Threatt, Cedric Ceballos, and more and we still supported our team.

    Everyone thinks that you can’t win championships without Kobe. Well the fact of the matter is the Heat did it (what does that tell you about the significance of Shaq), the Pistons did it and the Spurs did it (with defense), all without the “greatest player in the world”. If it means trading the “greatest player in the world” for a team that will make championship runs, so be it.

    In the end, I’m a LAKER FAN, not a Kobe fan – Remember “TEAM”

    beautiful. i love this song.

  • lakerluv

    hey lakerfirst, You do remember who the general manager was then dont you. The two idiots in the front office (Mitch and Jim) now cant even carry Jerry West jock strap. So dont count on trading Kobe turning into an NBA championship. Hey if they trade Kobe, that would be trading the only three All Stars on the team the last four years (Shaq, Caron, and Kobe). Holy crap when I put it that way, they really are idiots. In the 80,s it would be like trading Kareem, then Worthy, then Magic. Oh well, sucks to be a laker fan right now, but my love will always be strong no matter how bad they are.

NOW IT WILL BE 2 FUTURE HALL OF FAMERS GONE IN A MATTER OF 3-5 YRS…NIETHER WILL RETIRE AS A LAKER!!!!! THAT IS WHAT HURTS!!!! SHAME ON DR.JERR BUSS AND CO…I WILL NEVER FORGIVE THEM!!!!

    Agreed. I hope we get rid of Kobe SOON. The Lakers play MUCH better TEAM BASKETBALL without him. Get a couple good players in exchange for Kobe, sign Agent Zero next year and we’re good to go!

    Those who say “Don’t Let Kobe Go” should be saying “Stay Kobe Stay”. It is Kobe who wants to be traded and who doesn’t want to play with this team. The laker FO would rather keep him and hope that he could play with this team which does have talent as we have seen. You really can’t keep a player that doesn’t want to be here. All your energy would be better used if you urged Kobe to stay because remember Kobe has a “NO Trade Clause”. I don’t remember MJ ever saying for the first six years of his career “trade me” when his team was struggling slowly and getting better.

  • foxxy

    THIS REALLY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE TEAM…DR. BUSS LIED!!! HE USED KOBE FOR NOTHING MORE THAN TO FILL SEATS AND SELL GEAR…NO INTENTIONS OF BUILDING AN ELITE TEAM.WHAT KOBE SEES IS ALL HIS HARD WORK AND DEDICATION TO BRINGING A CHAMPIONSHIP BACK TO LOS ANGELES WAS WASTED. HIS TIME IS RUNNING OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Amen brother. I am first and foremost a Laker fan, and I will be (and have been) whether they are champions or dead last.

    You are also 100% right about team play. We already have the league’s best player and have for 3 years after Shaq, and where has it gotten us? Kobe is better than Duncan, Nash and everyone else. It doesn’t matter. The Spurs play as a team, and so do the Suns. Kobe does not.

  • getgasol

    …and can you count on Kwame Brown? No.

    can you count on Andrew Bynum?

    Maybe.

    Lakerluv, don’t forget it was also Jerry West who did not want Phil Jackson to be the head coach of the Lakers (remember that?). Jerry Buss overruled his a** and said, this is my team and I want him as the head coach.

    Don’t also forget the fact that it was Jerry Buss who simply opened his wallet and told Jerry West to get me Shaquille O’Neal at ANY COST. It doesn’t take a genious to get an all-star by opening up the wallet, so don’t give West too much credit. Yes, he was a good GM but Jerry Buss is the man who ultimately makes the decisions. All the Laker GM’s do (i.e. Kupcake and West) is merely follow the directions of the OWNER.

    Foxxy, don’t forget Jerry Buss wanted to keep Shaq, he offered him 2 years at $45M (that’s $22.5M). He wanted Shaq to take a minor paycut so he could resign Kobe and what does Shaq do? He declines the offer and yells “PAY ME” at the owner!! The big greedy SOB.

    Don’t forget, it was the Laker FO that stuck by Kobe’s his side during his whole Colorado ordeal and what does Kobe say “I wish they could’ve gotten me a better private jet?

    Don’t forget it was Kobe who publicly bashed his own teammates (guys he goes to war 82 nights a year) and bashes his own front offer crippling any chance the Lakers had to get KG. I’ll tell you right now, the Laker players all hate Kobe.
