The time is now. Do you side with the older Kobe, or the younger Bynum; this is the question which has caused tension between all of the Lakers fans, and the front office. J. O’Neal is putting himself out there for the Lakers to grab, many agree we’d be in contention with a Fish/KB/JO/LO lineup. But are the Lakers willing to trade Bynum away? Indy star, and others, sadly say no:
