Stephen A. SmithSteven A. Smith came on ESPN today and talked about Kobe’s future. He claims Kobe is “disgusted” at the fact that management did not pull the trigger for other stars to play alongside him. Smith says, Lakers had a legit shot at landing Baron Davis, Boozer and Jason Kidd in respective deals in the past. According to Smith, his pretty upset that the Lakers have not taken a chance.

But, not all is lost as we found out that Jim Buss promises to “go after a big name player” this off-season. We here of course are carrying the torch for Kevin Garnett to be THE GUY to get. Yet, Steven A. Smith also talked about Garnett and how he is puzzled – along with other guys in the league – why he has not tried to get out of Minnesota considering the circumstances. Sounded to me he wants Garnett to ask out and it’s a pretty well known fact that Steven A. Smith is with us in the “Get Garnett” movement.

Sounds to me like Kobe should give Garnett a call and at least talk to the man about coming to Los Angeles. These two superstars struggling in their primes coming together is what everyone wants. Stop the suffering andget Kobe Brant and Kevin Garnett united.

Below is the YouTube video, where you can watch the whole segment. Smith even goes on to say if things don’t shape up, “don’t be surprised if Kobe Bryant asks to be traded.”

  • Jason

    Way to fuel the fire!

  • One35

    Kobe is furiously pissed off. in a good way because the Management will know they will have no choice but to make there superstar happy.

  • ricky

    Garnett needs to decide immediately if he wants to get out of Minnesota or not because it is driving Kobe crazy!!!

  • Bill Armstrong

    Why would Garnett want to play with player like Bryant, who only thinks about himself? Why do you think Shaq left? Kobe needs to grow up, and let the upper management run the team, and keep his rich mouth shut!!

  • Kyle

    Oh, boo hoo for poor Kobe. KG does not HAVE to decide anything anytime soon. He is still under contract here in the beautiful state of MN. And do you think he really cares if it is “driving Kobe crazy” that he has not announced that he would abandon his team just to make Kobe and the rest of you MN wannabes happy? Yeah, thats right you take our original B-ball team because you want a winner, you want to take our football team, and now you want to take the face of OUR B-ball franchise just so you can win again. I tell you, you Los Angelites should really be thanking MN for providing you with winners.

    Hey, I see a pattern here. Its makes the whole KG thing a bit more realistic.

    Anyway, he could be under contract, but the guy want to win. He could love Minni all he wants, but at the end of the day I’m sure he’s loves victory much more.

    Hey Kobe… believe it or not… there are Jordan haters too!

    Not gonna point fingers, but we can learn something from the old saying. The one like “Even a fool seems smart… until he opens his mouth!” Much like alot of these comments here.

    Too simply blame Kobe for the “Shag exodus situation is simply stupid”. You have a player proudly wearing the monicker as “Most Dominant” yet he’s only led the league in scoring once, never led in rebounding or blocked (the 3 things you want from a big man)… yet most dominant. And here’s the icing… 4th qtr… he’s a liability. He’s not going to win the game for you when it’s on the line… pun intended. And let’s look at selfishness he was the one who refused to get surgery in the off season to be ready for the next. Instead waiting until training camp. He was the one playing overweight, but goes to Miami and shows up looking like Superman on steriods. He also, goes to Miami and conceeds that the team is Dwayne Wades. But, he couldn’t or shall I say would pass the torch to Kobe. He screwed with his own legency… granted he’ll go down as the “Most Dominant”, four rings. But, with a regrouping in LA and one, two more rings with the same club… awesome. Yelp, I hating on Shaq. I admit it… cause he should’ve died a Laker! LOL… No, Shaq’s a great guy and I could argue him either way, and LA and me will always love your big ass (no rings without you). But, in the same breathe I defend Kobe… he simply wants to wins and I think his efforts over the last couple of years prove it… KOBE… KOBE BRYANT… DON’T LET THE HATERS KILL THE COMPETITOR IN YOU… In this country, if management can’t get it right, the unions represents the workers… Your recent words represents LA! Management… here… in LA… winning is not an option!

    And to the the Kyle from MN… you guys provided us with winners? next time you walk into your arena. Look around the rafters count the championship banners. Then ask yourself, how stupid was that?

    KG loyalty can led to no titles in his career

    KG loyalty can lead to no Title

  • Boo Hoo

    Too bad Kobe. Now you want to win? You mean now that he’s done taking care of his own personal records, he’s mad because he didn’t win MVP because of his team’s poor record.

    Stupid that Lakers were once Championship contenders and he and Kupchak made them the way they are today.

    Why would anyone including Shaq want to pass a torch to an arrogant spoiled rich baby like Kobe.

    Kobe would have had the torch passed to him eventually as Shaq wore down and he developed as he has today. Lakers would also have 3 more Titles.
    Shaq is a liability in the end of the game, but that is what Kobe was for and that is where he could have made his stamp. Plus I’ve only seen Shaq lose 1 game in all his years as a Laker because of missed free throws.

    In all Kobe’s dream was to take the Lakers to the Title without any other superstar next to him so he can hog all the fame. Now he realizes he can’t do it and is crying. Boo Hooo!!!

    I don’t see how all the stupid Laker fans can love a guy that took the greatest franchise (next to the Yankees) from Championship caliber to yay we made the playoffs!! Not acceptable for a golden franchise like the Lakers.

    Boo Hoo needs to get off the site!!!! we here are die hard lakers fans. if kobe wanted to do it on his own his assists wouldnt have went up! its kind of hard to win games when the only other player playin with averages 7 pts. Lamar, Luke, and Kwame the lakers three leading scorers behind Kobe and all missed about 60 games together, and Cook and Smush were next in line and both of them were streaky. I dont care how good you are nobody can with 50 games under those conditions!

    NEWAYZ to Kobe. Stephen A. sent a wake up call to KG. He let KG know that nothing is gonna happen in Minnesota, and the closest they were was KGs MVP year where they got knocked by none other than Kobe and who The Lakers. The Timberwolve have been in a downward spiral ever since. KG is about to realize that he needs a ring to put the stamp on his hall of fame career, and Kobe wants another. Once you put two of the premier NBA players who are hungry and going for the same goal you cant get anything except success! In order for this trade to work out Lakers management is gonna have to grown some balls and let go of Bynum. Once this trade happens the Lakers are gonna be like the Pistons when they got Rasheed. Immediate championships, because KG is a veteran player with a high basketball IQ and he should learn the triangle quick and easily. I GUARANTEE “THE LAKERS FRANCHISE WILL RETURN TO GREATNESS”

  • Ricky

    Steven A. Smith is right, if Garnett wants to win so badly, he should take it upon himself and demand a trade. He deserves to reward himself for his hardwork by going to another team where his hardwork will be useful beyond the regular season. His passion and work ethic are just as strong as Kobe’s. Both love to win and deservedly so. I suggest that the Lakers do anything in their power to retain Lamar Odom, even though he might have to leave. Also, they need to keep Turiaf, Walton, and Farmar. Bynum will probably be dealt if they want Garnett. The Lakers need to remove Kwame, Radmanovic, Sasha, and possibly Cook. I suggest that Lakers try anything they can to get Garnett first, if not, then Jermaine. Package Kwame, Radmanovic, Sasha, Cook, and a 1st round pick to get either of them.

    Mitch better do something good for once in his life as a Lakers GM….were all watching so dont screw up Mitch Kupcake….

  • gamble84

    Kobe is disgusted with the Laker organization? If this is true, then we shouldn’t build around this guy. Imagine when his opt out year arrives… he will be holding the city of LA hostage.

    I say plan for the future. Quick fixes rarely work.

  • Kobe_Rizvanolli

    let’s hope kupcake becomes smart this summer…
