Update from Clublakers.com: Seemed like lies from the beginning… the Blazer Announcer did say that Kobe will be traded in 10 days. But the other announcer laughed at him. My guess is that they were joking with each other. I’m gonna keep watching and tell you more later. The comment happens at the 17:00 mark. Plus, Kobe has a no trade clause and would never go to the worst team in the league.

Kobe Bryant

AOL’s Fanhouse: During the online webcast of the Summer League Suns/Blazers game, one of the broadcasters (I don’t know who it was, sorry) made a little bit of a mistake. His mouth believed he was off the air, but his microphone disagreed … and unbeknownst to the broadcaster himself, he told the whole world this:

A Lakers team source told him that the Lakers would be trading Kobe Bryant to the Grizzlies for Pau Gasol and Mike Miller, and that it would be going down in the next 10 days.

For whatever it’s worth, the proposed deal does work under the cap.

Now, I’m not telling you that this is going to happen. I don’t know who the source was … hell, I don’t even know who the broadcaster was.

He sort of backtracked when the broadcast went back to live, and someone made him aware of his boo-boo. He said that anyone who listens to him knows that he just makes stuff up … and hey, maybe he did. That’s entirely possible. Maybe he’s a pathological liar.

  • LAKERSFAN24

    I THINK THE LAKERS COULD GET MUCH MORE FOR KOBE THAN GASOL AND MILLER.

  • http://www.otrforums.com alcstarheel

    Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah…why would he approve Memphis? No big market, still in the West, and in strongest Division, no quality players to contend with.

    And to top it all off, his boy Chucky signing with the Nuggz?! Don’t think so ;)

  • http://LOL ZACK

    LOL DIS IS CRAZY LOL DA BEST PLAYER 4 SCRUBS LOL

  • k0be da 1 andonly

    Even if this was true, Kobe wold be like “Fuk dat, ill be in an even worse position”

  • guest

    nooo waaaay, this is b/s … kobe aint going no where, this is HIS team and HIS city. and of ever place .. memphis?? even if gasol stayed in memphis, kobe gasol aint much better than his current stituation .. this rumor is bogus.

  • Brett

    That is a load of crap, Kobe would never end up with the worst team in the western conference. Before they could ever force a deal, Kobe would use his no trade clause. Just a huge load of crap.

  • SILO

    TWO WORDS! BULL ****

  • http://LOL ZACK

    That isn’t true, it was Antonio Harvey and he was clearly joking

  • Sotelo

    Yeah F***** right. Memphis? kobe goes from bad to hopeless!!

  • LAKobe4Life

    That is the most bullsh*t story I have ever seen. First off, Kobe ain’t going NOWHERE, He’s stayin, 110%. Second, who the hell can even think about this kind of deal EVER happening. There’s no way in hell, this deal will EVER happen. Period. End of story. People says alot of sh*t, sources this and sources that, people are just trying to stir up the Kobe fiasco again because it’s been very quiet on that front for a damn good while. Everyone, don’t even trip, cuz it’s completely 110% BULLSH*T.

    the Nugget dude

    You should be ashamed of yourself for reporting on gossip. You must know that getgarnett.com only deals with cold hard facts. We don’t listen to gossip, and refuse to even consider anything unless it is the absolute truth. We all know for that deal to happen Memphis would have to throw in at least a first round draft pick.

  • lakerfan81

    I think that trading Kobe to Memphis works. Kobe would then have to take every shot. He could average 40 pts/game and 50 shots/game a win win situation.

    Why would Kobe Ok a trade to Memphis?

  • http://www.getgarnett.com Fred A.

    This is not cool. Kobe needs to do a lot more talking
    about this situation. I thought the lakers will not
    trade Kobe. No I am little bit sader and my worries is a
    little bit stronger. I love Lakers with Kobe on it.
    A Percie/Arenas/L. James/Duncan trade for Kobe is not
    good enough. Kobe is worth to much value. I want Bryant
    to stay he is the best player in the league. And he
    is the only exciting player to watch theirs no other.

  • http://www.getgarnett.com Fred A.

    I am scared!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Justin M.

    Man, the only people that could be that guys source is someone “behind the closed doors”, remember all that privacy stuff, If this was true why the hell would the Lakers something that big slip? I don’t know, in the end its Kobe’s descion to stay or go and we all hope he stays.

  • Justin M.

    Was there really nothing else to post?! Laker fans have been through enough stress so why are you guys causing more stress based on something stupid a guy in portland said?

  • Justin M.

    LOL, he caught Ric Bucher syndrom.

  • magicbalala245

    this is the worst rumor in “NBA HISTORY PERIOD” I mean think about it wouldn’t ESPN already interview this announcer about this trade and his sources of this trade happen just like they do with Ric and Stein and if you look closely about this article
    it says “Posted Jul 15th 2007 1:34AM by mjd” and who is mjd a user who probably wrote this to create hype does he have any credibility NO this rumor is absolutely false cause KOBE KNOW KG IS COMING TO LA

  • kobe124

    this is bull crap. kobe for miller and pau gasol. these guys suck. WE NEED KG not some crappy players.

  • klao

    since you guys are laking a good article to post, maybe you should post this one about Javaris, very good article and story about his faith and work ethic.

    If this guy can be that good this year, maybe just maybe the Lakers will bounce back.

    Living in Portland I am forced to watch their coverage of Laker/Blazer match-ups because League Pass blacks them out. In doing so, I have to listen to the joke that is their announce team. I understand most announcing duos for local telecasts are byist, but these guys take it to an extreme. Also, I’m assuming the guy who said this is the same one that I heard define the kick ball rule as, “it doesn’t matter if it is intentional or not, if that ball touches your foot it is a kickball!” lol so I really wouldn’t take anything he says seriously. It seems like most of you guys aren’t anyway :-).

    I have no clue why you guys have a problem with this post. If you read the description of the website it states: GetGarnett.com is a website/blog dedicated to the latest Los Angeles Lakers news and rumors. We try to post anything relevant to the Los Angeles even if its good or as horrible as this article is. Moreover, I was quick to debunk the article, in question.

    I understand, being a Laker fan, during the summer, waiting for something to happen… ANYTHING BIG to happen is a hard thing to do. WE UNDERSTAND that. Hell, thats part of the reason why we created the website, to have fans scribble their feelings down through comments and their own articles; On how they feel during all this crazyness we are dealing with right now. So if it makes you feel good to attack me for posting this crap, by all means do it… But, please don’t attack what the website means and is. It isn’t his fault. :)

    I feel good about this article – why LD2k, you ask? Because IF – and that’s a big IF he gets traded, it would be Chicago and only Chicago in my opinion.

    Funny story.

  • DYNASTY

    IF WERE TRADING KOBE TO MENPHIS..WE GONNA HAVE TO GET MILLER,GASOL,GAY,WARRICK,AND THE OWNERSHIP OF THE TEAM!

  • magic32

    WTF why would Kobe Bryant The 2nd Greatest Player Of All Time wanna play with a crappy ass organization with people who look like they have bad hygiene. Funny article.

  • Bones 24

    Ya cant build a team around kobe, WITHOUT KOBE…

    UPDATE:

    The Blazer announcer is totally lying. On the next timeout around 21:50 mark. He mentions that in the next 10 days that Lakers are going to trade Kobe for Pau Gasol and Mike Miller. The other announcers started chuckling again.

    AND HERE’S THE NAIL IN THE COFFIN: Then the guy says that Kobe was angry about being traded to Memphis and would sit out the whole season if he was traded there. This Blazer announcer was obviously spewing BS for fun, since anybody knows that Kobe can veto any trade with his no-trade clause.

    Definitely wasn’t trying to say this post is bogus man, I’m really sorry if it came off that waY! I love this site and everything you guys do and understand that you try to keep Lakers fans updated on all rumors. Keep up the good work!

  • lakerfan01

    this is some dumb S*H*I*T….those 2 guys were just messin around bout him being traded…they stupid, just tryin 2 start controversy…

  • Kevin McHale

    Im back from my trip refreshed and recharged only to come back to THIS SHIT!! The trade is KG to Memphis not KB!! I’m suing those fucks for letting that shit out AND getting it wrong!

    Don’t matter now though, I’m pulling the trigger on the deal – KG to Memphis for that shitty Gasol and weakass Miller because I’d rather get Memphis’ garbage in return for KG than whatever Lakers have to offer. I’ll enjoy watching the Lakers in the f’ng lottery for the next 10 years. KB will leave and go into the Hall of Fame as a Chicago Bull. Screw you Laker fans! Eat shit! HA!

  • http://twitter.com/nugge7 The Nugget

    Plus, I wasn’t at the game nor did I hear the broadcast from this game. All I had working with was this article. So, I had none of the information we have now.

  • jmkb24

    I absolutely do not believe this article one bit! Kobe has a no trade clause and would not want to go to the worst team in the league! He wants to win championships. He would be in a worse position in memphis than he would be in L.A. ecspecially without Gasol!

    EVERYONE SHOULD READ THIS: This is a comment from the other blog:

    To clarify–(I thought this comment posted earlier, but apparently it didn’t, I apologize if it shows up twice)

    3 nights ago, Mike Rice, a Blazer broadcaster was caught on-air calling someone an (bleep), albeit in a joking manner. It got on youtube, the radio guys had a good chuckle about it on their weekly Thursday radio, much fun was had.

    So tonight, Antonio Harvey was doing the game with Rice, rather than Mike Rice. Harvey decided to joke around during commercials (the people watching on the internet still get the audio feed during commercials) so he started cracking these bizarre “trade rumors”, during which he was cracking up, and obviously kidding.

    Later, Brian Wheeler admonished him off-air for it, telling him the players are really sensitive to this, and Harvey admitted he was joking.
