The media frenzy continues. Although I have to say you’d have to be pretty insane to trade away two hall of famers within five years, “sources” say Kobe still wants out. Jeanie comes on her blog and clearly states that the Lakers would not trade Kobe Bryant, but Hoopsworld’s Eric Pincus reveals the following about a meeting between Dr. Buss & Bryant which occured earlier today.
Hoopsworld: The summer saga of Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers continued Friday as Bryant met with team owner Jerry Buss in Barcelona, Spain.
While the details of the conversation are between the two, the bottom line is that Bryant has not backed off of his trade demand.
At what point does the Buss family simply grant him his wish, regardless of the fan backlash?
Remember they did trade Shaquille O’Neal.
