Kobe needs to get his head out of his ass. If he wants any more championship rings or at least a team that doesn’t bring disappointment to fan’s faces, he’s going to have to learn to calm the fuck down. Unless he decides to up and buy out the Lakers, it doesn’t really matter what he says. Every time there is a trade rumor, Kobe always has to get a word in. He either approves of shitty players who won’t threaten his playing time or disapproves of someone who might actually be better than him. What is his deal? Who are we all kidding here, you’re getting old and you and the rest of the Lakers need all the help you can get and it’s not going to happen if you keep scaring people off. If they trade Pau Gasol, then they trade him. Trades MAKE the NBA. Without it we’d still have Marc Gasol, (although that’s not looking too bad now). Aww…at least one of the Gasol brothers made it to the NBA All Stars this year. This hasn’t been the BEST season for Pau and maybe he’d do better on another team, who knows? All I know is that the Lakers need to get their hands on SOMEBODY and Kupchak does not need Kobe running his mouth every chance he gets.
Just play every game like your life depends on it and just appreciate all the time you DO have to play with Pau and the other Lakers. It’s so hard to build a team around someone who doesn’t really want change. Yeah he said he has Pau’s back AFTER he ranted about him being up for trade. The Lakers need to WORK with management, not AGAINST them. I’m sorry we couldn’t trade Pau before the season but it is what it is.
But it’s just like Mark said, who’s going to pay him $19 million per year for 2 years? And the whole thing with DH which affects Deron Williams…well the deadlines coming up soon. Everyone needs to cut the bullshit.
