Isiah will be the most hated person in NY if he bring Kobe here. Kobe can't ever get along with the Lakers. What makes you think that he will get along with this struggling team we call Knicks. We have a lot of stars and players that can put that ball in the hole on this team. If Kobe comes, no one else will get a chance to score. Everyone wil have to pass him the ball. Even Curry will average 6 assists a game. Kobe has to big of a ego and just like Artest, fights every game.
la won 40 + games last season and the season before without shaq before flaming out to a far superior suns team both years
if kobe can win 40+ in the west... he should be able to win 50+ in ny with curry/zach alongside him...
we'd prolly have to sacrifice:
crawford, collins, malik rose and balkman/lee FOR kobe
steph, malik, jason collins FOR kobe, radmanovic
i'd prefer the first trade option if we can keep lee... but i think the lakers would insist on steph to keep a box office draw... plus... steph and malik come off the books in 2 years giving them cap room to go after lebron and co in three summers... if we give up lee in the trade... then we need to sign darko to shore up our front court...
randolph has 4 years left and steph has 2... i think it's feasible... especially since LA hasn't made any improvements yet...
i think you can make a real argument that this knicks team other than the star (marbury) is better than LAs team without kobe...curry vs bynum/kwame, lee/now Z-Bo is as good as odom/cook/vlad, balkman/q is as good as mo evans/whoever they play at 3. our backup pgs are about as good as smush and farmar. i think kobe on the ny team would be a way better team than LA now.
