Found this from the O.C. Register’s Blog. This makes me feel good about possibly landing KG. The kid loves KG:

O.C. Register Blog: And as much as disgruntled Kobe Bryant has liked Jermaine all these years, Garnett was the guy who sort of took Bryant in at the kid’s first All-Star Game and kept in touch via phone all these years, too. Note that the gist of Bryant’s sentiment, as he told me back in March, is this: “I love KG.”

We’ll see if the Lakers can get it done and if Bryant comes around with a true superstar partner to help him back to titletown.

    Where did the shoutbox go??? wtf

  • Pat

    It’s nice that Kobe loves KG. I think Boston is being kinda selfish, but it’s nice to know that KG would be willing to come to LA He’s got a home in malibu and he has his friend or cuz Mo Exans.

    Luckily I no longer work at a corporate job… I would guaranteed be fired right now. I have never hit F5 so much in my life. I guess even away from my corporate desk, I am still the button pusher.

    I am posting for the very first time today, but have been following the site almost since inception. Earlier today I tried reading the most up to date news and was denied access due to site capacity issues! After seeing that, I knew that the end is near and had to post. The shear mention of KG switching uniforms at the tail end of Kobe’s trade demands means that we are officially amidst the climax of this offseason. If we land KG we will rejoice as a city, for the roller coaster will be over and we will have 2 superstars in purple and gold come training camp. If we don’t get KG, we will return to the years of Lakers obscurity aka the Cedric Ceballos blindfolded dunking days. Either way the end is near…like all of you I believe in happy endings.

    KG + KB = KGB

    Well guys, plz dont get your hopes up that we’ll see KG or even a happy Kobe in a Lakers jeresy next season. It would be a dream come true to see Kobe, KG and Odom (but if Odom has to go u get Artest) but it just feels so unreal because like many other Lakers fan’s out there, the Lakers have failed to meet my expectations countless times whether it was trading shaq for garbage, loosing to PHX twice in a row in the playoffs and lieing to Kobe. All im trying to say is be happy about this KG thing but don’t make ur hopes so big. “The bigger they are the harder they fall”. If it doesnt go through and Kobe’s still upset this site will be filled with trash talking which is not needed. To prevent that dont build your hopes up so big. Peace

    KB24 = best player on the planet

    KG21 = one of the most unstoppable big men in the NBA.

    KB24+KG21= Dynasty

    Nobody lied to Kobe… Kobe lied to everyone else. If the team was so bad, he should have said something at the beginning of the season… but why didn’t he? Because they were winning!

    umm, yea they did they promised to build a contender around him fast and if im not mistaking, what they had last season was in no shape of form a contender for a championship.

    Kobe was lied to, period. They promised to build a contender around him fast when he resigned and a Odom, Bynum, and Kwame lineup isnt a quick way to win a title when your team is in the WEST and like I said in my previous comment, i dont care how much they were winning that roster was in no shape or form a contender for a title. Last time I checked a broken promise is a lie. Lets see what happens, Only time will tell.

    kobe loves KG!!! if the BIG TICKET does become a laker….i know for a fact kobe will resign wit the lakers as long as KG and KB truly wanna win here in PURPLE N GOLD….cause they promised help and help indeed came…..HOPEFULLY….

  • kb+kg=3p

    hey guys, i was just wondering if any of these two trade scenarios would be realistic and possible at all. considering that paul pierce wants a reliable co-star with him in boston. http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/news;_ylt=AoFq78TTHdm4RUhM2_WbDcc5nYcB?slug=aw-pierce062507&prov=yhoo&type=lgnsin

    in both scenarios, the lakers ends up getting garnett. in addition, they are all within the cap boundaries.

    1st Trade Scenario (4 Team Involvement)
    Lakers: Kevin Garnett
    Wolves: Al Jefferson/Sebastian Telfair/Theo Ratliff/Kwame Brown/Celtics #5 Draft Pick
    Pacers: Lamar Odom/Andrew Bynum
    Celtics: Jermaine O’Neal/Lakers #19 Draft Pick

    2nd Trade Scenario (3 Team Involvement)
    Lakers: Kevin Garnett/Troy Hudson
    Wolves: Al Jefferson/Sebastian Telfair/Theo Ratliff/Kwame Brown/Celtics #5 Draft Pick
    Celtics: Lamar Odom/Andrew Bynum/Jordan Farmar/Lakers #19 Draft Pick

    in both cases, the lakers are overpaying for what they’re getting in return. but it seems like the Lakers front office will have to overpay in order to negotiate a deal. any criticisms/comments?

    This would be something special if this occured. Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett on the same stage together, matter of fact in a laker uniform and in the Staples Center were the number one venue of all of basketball. Plus I am a huge laker fan and sometimes I feel like a #1 fan of them.
    Here are two great line-ups if KG arrives:
    1. PG: Smush Parker or 2. Chancey Bill-ups
    SG: Kobe Bryant Kobe Bryant
    SF: Sasha Vujivic Ron Artest
    PF: Kwaume Brown Kwaume Brown
    C: Kevin Garnett Kevin Garnett

  • http://www.kb24.com darkice18

    if we trade Lamar,bynum and 19th pick…for KG

    OUR STARTING LINEUP:

    PG: Steve Blake (sign half MLE)/Farmar
    SG: Kobe/Mo Evans/Sasha
    SF: Artest (trade kwame)/Luke (re-sign)/Vlade/48th pick
    PF: Ronny/Cook/40th pick
    C : KG/Mihm/Magloire (sign half MLE)

    NOW THAT MY FRIENDS IS A CHAMPIONSHIP LINEUP!!!!

    GOOD??????

  • http://www.kb24.com darkice18

    also we can sign vets like Chris webber and Grant Hill

  • nate

    i know we have to trade at least Kwame, Bynum, and Odom for KG. instead of Smush we could probably land Billups and a draft pick with Cook, Radman, Sasha, and Evans. if Artest is needed, try Walton for him straight up. sign veteran forward like Webber, and…

    C: Mihm, Ronnie
    PF: Garnett, Webber, pick
    SF: Artest, pick
    SG: Kobe, pick
    PG: Billups, Farmar

    every team would be simply overwhelmed with this lineup. all have both some range in their shot and come up big in clutch time. no team could gaurd Artest and Kobe with their perimeter defense, and they couldn’t get past Garnett and Mihm on the inside.

    07-08 CHAMPIONS!!!

  • lakerfan81

    nate can’t happen. Billups opted out of his contract so he could get a bigger one. He will probably end up getting about 15 million a year. The lakers can’t offer that because of the salary cap. This is not baseball where the yankees can buy every player they want or A-rod can be signed for a deal that is worth more than a 3rd of the teams in the MLB.

  • lakerfan81

    There is a way to make a KG trade that does not include Indy. Just take them out of the 4 team trade. Chad ford has an articel on espn. Boston gets Odom, and Bynum , Minny gets ratliff, Gerald green, telfair #5 and their 2008 pick back form boston, and kwame, the lakers get KG and Jaric. Boston gets to keep Jefferson. They are getting an all star calliber veteran in Odom, (who will be better in the east where size doesn’t make as much of a difference), Bymum who would be this years consensus #3 pick if he was in the lottery. If you look at it that way they are trading up in the lottery. Minnesota gets #5 pick, their # 8 back from boston, , our # 19 would be included, a couple good young players, and 20 million in ending contracts. Thats probably the best Minnesota is going to do for KG because no one will trade for him if he will just opt out. Its better than PHX can offer him unless they are willing to part with Amare. It’s better for boston than the 3 team deal with PHX and minnesota. out Throw in a conditional 1st round pick to boston from the lakers and it is plausible.
