    I wouldn't want Kobe in NY either. All we need is another ball-hog that shoots way too much. Personally I have no problems with Kobe but to mortgage the farm on a guy that can't win without Shaq around is crazy. The only way I would consider it if we could dump the dead-vet weight like Marbury and Francis of the world. An Eddie Curry/ Kobe combo does sound interesting though....hmmm

    Kobe has a veto rights to any trade. Why would he come to NY if the reason he wants to leave LA is because he wants to win. Chicago is closer personnel wise to becoming a contender than the Knicks.

    Default It Could Happen

    the nba needs the knicks to be good again. with the ratings the league had this past post season stern will do anything in his power to bring the viewers back. he's a huge knicks fan too. if kobe goes anywhere i think ittl be to ny. since he has the power to determine where he goes kobe knows New York is a goldmine 4 him. on top of that he knows the atlantic division is garbage and he could be the savior of the knicks just like MJ was to the bulls. if i was IT id press 4 a trade like this...
    --------------------------------------------
    to the knicks...
    kobe bryant($19,490,625)

    for

    steve francis- $16,440,000
    david lee- $990,600
    channing frye- $2,487,240
    (maybe add a 1st round pick)
    total- $19,917,840
    --------------------------------------------
    whatever the case might be this squad could own the east...

    pg- marbury
    sg- crawford
    sf- kobe
    pf- jeffries
    c- curry

    back ups
    pg- collins
    sg- robinson
    sf- q-rich/balkman
    pf- morris
    c- james

    with the 23rd pick in the nba draft id take bad ass Sean Williams - [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - he definatly could be that shot blockin son of a bitch we so desperately need. isiah seems to relate good with players who have problems off the court too so i think it could work out.

    all and all with a line up like that, answer me this... who the hell is fuk'n with us?

    If we get Kobe, it'll be a blessing. We'll finally have an elite NBA player again and a chance at competiting. It'll be great for the NBA, an elite player in the mecca of basketball.

    Anyone hear about this video of Kobe ripping the Lakers and Bynum?

    I think to say he's disgruntled would be an under statement. This is a hell of a lot worse than the Allen Iverson situation in fact. Buss doesn't seem to want to give up on his game plan to cultivate young players- and Kobe wants to WIN NOW.

    You can do this Zeke.

    Ideally Buss would need Lee and Frye involved with any deal before he even picks up the phone, but because of salaries- Stephon's contract would be the best one to swap.

    Stephon still has some popularity that might be a small band aid on the franchise's fan base. This talk of Francis being the center piece is not pragmatic. At best, he should be waived and be a bench player for Utah or Suns.

    Stephon, Lee, Frye for Kobe is the best deal out there.

    Collins and Kobe would be a hell of a back court- especially since Collins wouldn't have to worry about his offensive game so soon.

    Let's do it. Chicago beats us at everything, lets stick it to them and steal Kobe from them. Our package is more apealing to Buss.

    Lakers would like nice with

    Bynum, Lee, and Frye in their front court

    No, No, No!!! Come on Isiah. Don't trade away everything for Kobe!! Come on guys, is it really worth it to bring Kobe to the Knicks? I would much rather keep the team we have now and be at the bottom of the worst division in NBA history, then win a championship with Kobe on our team. Doesn't anybody have any integrity any more??? Is winning really worth prostituting yourselves like this?? Have some pride people!!

    Dammit, if we trade Lee and any other players that I like on the Knicks to get Kobe, I will have to be a Laker fan. And I HATE the Lakers!!!

    I don't know about you, but I'd at least like to hear Kobe's rebuttal when Isiah tells him the following: If LeBron James can get to the Finals with Drew Gooden, who's going to stop you from doing the same thing with Eddy Curry?

    Imagine Isiah Thomas telling this to KOBE

    What would you think KOBE's response would be?

    if this is a hell of a lot worse then the iverson situation then y the hell would we give up marbury, frye, and lee for kobe. did u forget what denver gave up for AI? andre miller, joe smith, and 2 1st round pix. in these situations the team losing the superstar rarely gets hooked up. the ball isnt in the lakers court. its up to the kobe and phil. on the real i cant see chicago offering a better deal then francis, lee, frye, and a few draft picks.

    I dont know if the lakers would want both frye and lee. They already got Bynum so why would they want 2 powerforwards? I would take Frye out of the deal and ask for mardy collins if i was the lakers. They might want crawford too. I'm wondering what chicago will offer. Im not sure if i want Kobe to come to the knicks. I got mixed emotions about this cuz I'm afraid Isiah is going to give up too much and another reason why is that I would really miss David Lee.

    SXmarbury516, you a true hip hop fan for listenin to tragedy khadafi. The MAtrix is a classic like every other tragedy album. Queens rappers lyrically are the best, they got Nas, cormega, mobb Deep, tragedy, big Noyd, CNN, MC shan, twin gambino, and the list goes on. Aint no other borough or city F**kn with Queens.

    I got to agree with you bro. Kobe is a Laker, case closed. Honestly, if MJ won a title in Washington during his 2nd comeback, would DC fans consider him a Wizard? Hell no. Winning a title would be nothing more than a footnote in NYK history. Now, I definitely would love to win a title, but not this way. Wouldnt it be much more fulfilling if we won with guys that came up as Knicks, not cut and paste strategy like the Heat did. He would be nothing more than a hired gun, just like Roger Clemens. But, if he came, would I embrace him? Unfortunately Yes. Therefore, it is a very hard question to answer b/c I can not say that I am in total agreement with having or not having him on the Knicks. Plus, getting rid of Lee would really suck b/c I think he is the second coming of Oakley.

    Thanks man! It's nice to see someone else that doesn't want Kobe here. Everybody here is falling all over themselves in love with Kobe. I live in Colorado, so after that whole rape incident I lost all respect for him. That whiney bitch can go play for some other team.

    Hold on, Kobe was a quited of all charges. I've never been a Kobe fan ether. He's an arrogant lil prick but he is the best all around player in the league. There is no one with his determination sense M.J. and he could turn this franchise around. So in a way I feel you on not liking Kobe but you've got to move pass the Colorado situation. At this point all of the Kobe talk is pointless because LA aint trading him. Kobe is the worlds highest paid prisoner.

    IT HAS BEGUN BOYS AND GIRLS
    From ESPN:
    "The club has also looked into whether or not they can repair the relationship with Bryant and they have reportedly received a resounding 'no' from their 'back channel' overtures."

    Lakers have begun trade discussions!!!!

    So it's between NY and Chicago! Make it happen Isiah!
