Another factless rumor debunked.
New York Newsday: Sam Smith of the Chicago Tribune did a wrap up on the Americas tournament in Vegas and briefly discussed Kobe Bryant’s future. Let me nip this in the bud before anyone gets hysterical, because Sam suggests the Knicks will be major players in trying to get Kobe. Sam merely speculated on what we’ve all been speculating since Kobe first came out and said he wanted out, so don’t read too much into this. There is nothing new.
