Kobe actually wanted to play in Detroit.. it wasnt Kobe vetoing it as so much the situation defusing in LA. Lakers are winning.. Kobes lowered his stance.. Kupchak never wanted to trade him and Buss lowered his stance as well.
I would love for Kobe to be on this team and furthermore my three team deal is the best i can come up with.
Lakers get- Marbury, Crawford, Lee & 1st round pick.
Kings get- Vladimir radmanovic, Renaldo Balkman
Knicks get- Kobe Bryant and Ron Artest.
but thats highly unlikely also is a package for Kobe in a one on one trade because of Marburys high price. It would take either Marbury and all of our young contracts for Kobe or Marbury and Crawford with some young guns for Kobe and Radmanovic. or somehow and less likely a package starting with Crawford, Malik Rose and Quentin Richardson with Nate Robinson.
I actually think we should start looking at the Lakers though... for LAMAR ODOM. easier to comeby have to give up less talent and the lakers are always trying to get rid of him. a new york native who would thrive here.
