    Let’s stop blaming Mitch when everyone knows it really Jim Buss’s fault and his Daddy for putting that “IDIOT” in charge.I don’t think were going to trade Kobe any.Now if Jimmy were fully in charge he be gone by now.Jimmy’s just jealous of Kobe because at Christmas dinner Jim has to sit at the kids table while Kobe sits across from Jerry trying to figure out how to SHIP JIMMY’S !$&@?
