Did you even read the second article?

Dwight didn't ask for Kobe gone.
The guy that wrote the article said "hypothetically" that "IF dwight ever askled it if he was going to stay in LA that he thinks the Lakers would do it.L
Dwight didn't say a thing and the writer said off bat he was basing it on hypothetics.
Did you read the article? The guy even said they could "amnesty" Kobe hypothetically.
Bet your bottom dollar they'd amnesty Gasol before ever amnestying Kobe.
Think..and read..

Yes, I read it, but what I meant is that we shouldn't force Kobe out or amnesty him after what he has done for the organization just to get Dwight to stay

With Kobe being done in two years, there's NO CHANCE they get rid of Kobe. I'm 100% sure of that.

That's what I'm saying. Kobe deserves to retire on his terms for everything his given us. Lakers would be stupid to "dump" Kobe

Well if Kupchak says the Howard IS their future. You can best believe if he request that Kobe Bryant to be removed he IS going to be on his way out.

Mitch also understands that if Dwight remains we still aren't doing it without Kobe.

As he said we got 2 year window which depends on Kobe. Basically he's saying if Kobe only plays another 2 years while Dwight is here, that's our window.

it cant happen this yr nor next yr so if Kobe wanted to continue as a Laker past that point & D12 already resigned with Lakers - Mitch aint gonna honor D12 request.

Kobe isn't going to retire till the end of 2015 season. He's gonna take a smaller contract 2014.

Nothing in Kupchak's interview indicated that he was considering the possibility of trading Kobe.

Is Mitch puffin that wacky tabacy? Seriously can we slow down and limit the expectations of Dwight just a little bit. It took KAJ like 20 years to get a statue and now Mitch is ready to give D12 his already.

And if the Lakers force a trade of KB24 somehow/someway.....I'm sorry but the Lakers will lose a fan thats spent lots and lots of money over the years on tickets, merch, memorabilia, etc.

You dont give more loyalty to a injured center whos done nothing but sign a one year deal with you than you do to the player whos won 5 chips and is your greatest all time. Its the exact definition of LOYALTY.

Then they aren't laker fans....they are Kobe fans.

Kobe is going to retire a Laker. He won't get traded, he won't be amnestied. Talking heads just doing what they're paid to do.

lol the same posters over re-acting over another rumor from some media member . Also, of course Dwight is the future, they're not going to dump Kobe, he is in the twilight of his career and he's not going to be around in 2014 when they issue in the new era pairing some one with Dwight.

this is the funniest thing Ive seen all week because it actually means that Obama, Binden and Pelosi dont read the crap policies they vote for and institute. Like a Health Care bill that was voted on and passed before it was even written. Thats a awesome image...lol
