    Default if the knicks get Artest....

    Would you include him in a trade for Kobe?

    Artest and a bunch of our garbage for Kobe I wouldn't wait one second! (as long as we kept Marbury,Q,Lee,Curry I would through in cash and picks if I had to)

    There are very few teams in the league that would be willing to take on Artest and his baggage, the Knicks may be one of the teams but the Lakers wouldn't take him on unless Kobe was still on the team.

    I dont know, I think the Knicks Lakers would take the gamble of Artest....

    Artest would thrive if he was THE MAN on a team, but honestly I think with Curry, Randolph, Steph, and our other guys Artest wont be THE MAN.
    Dont get me wrong I think the Knicks would ROCK if they had Artest but he wont be the #1 or #2 selling Jersey in the NBA. That honor would go to Garnett and Kobe or some other guys.

    But if they Lakers grabbed Artest from the Knicks then Artest would be the main man in LA, and his Jersey would be #2 along side Kobe Bryant's #1 selling Knicks Jersey, and Garnetts #3 selling Boston jersey. There will be a lot of attention on LA and NY and Artest better do the right thing in LA because the spotlight is on him. And Kobe will be the man in NY.

    The idea would work perfectly for both teams and both players.

    I dont care which player the Knicks get as long as they give up the right pieces. But when you think for the better of a players career I would send Artest to LA for Kobe to NY. Ny can be a dangerous place for that Artest kid if he doesnt play his cards right

    Yeah I'm not saying to go and get Artest because i think we have a strong team right now w/o artest, but IF we got Artest i wouldnt include him for kobe becuase we would bring him to NY for his defense and then to trade him away just like that? that wouldnt happen.
