    Wow.

    If these GM’s think so highly of Kobe, why are we getting low balled in Kobe offers? Haha

    hZm. Everyone knows Kobe is arguably the best player in the game right now. (Actually right now the only player I would put close to Kobe is Duncan, James and Wade might be there in a couple years but not yet). He is also the best seat filler. The problem is that Kobe controls where he goes and teams like Chicago and Dallas think they have a championship caliber team already and are not willing to break up the core of their team even for someone as good as Kobe.

    Not one person said they want LeBron taking the last shot, and he’s their MVP?? Ok…

    Clutch Factor: -70

    … I don’t count those wide open layups as clutch shots.

    “Which player in the NBA would you want taking a shot with the game on the line?”

    Duncan, Melo, Nash all 3.8%

    Not all GM’s responded, but with that 3.8, even with my limited Algebra skills, I can figure that each of those guys votes came from their own GM’s. “Homers” lol

    Duncan never makes FT’s when it counts.

  • MILO

    ID TRADE THE WHOLE TEAM BEFORE I TRADE KOBE LET’S GO AFTER MARION, LET GO OF LAMAR PLEASE, THEN WORKOUT SOMETHING SO WE CAN GET A REAL CENTER HA HA HA LOL! NO BUT REALLY THE LAKERS NEED TO MAKE SOME CHANGES

  • fatty

    milo,

    I think we need to make some changes too. I would like to wait until Dec 15 to see what our vital needs are then. Other teams will be thinking for the same thing. Might be some good deals to be had.

    Kwame and Cook = 12.5
    That has to get you somebody, that is big, can block shots and rebound.

    agree….

  • ricky

    kobe is the best in the game today, hands down! i dont care what everyone is saying because i truly believe that kobe is gonna be a laker for life! if he and the organization can improve this season and just hold out a little longer, i think the upcoming free agents and potential opt outs of talented players can give the lakers a good chance to sign some much needed help. i think with the team we have now, we are deep and talented at all spots. just a few minor adjustments via trades and signings can help upgrade the team drastically.
