would the lakers trade kobe, not for some avarge player, not for some player like joe johnson or josh smith or michael redd. im talking about trading kobe for LeBron or Kobe for CP3 and Mo pete as a package.

The better question is would those teams do it? Both Lebron and CP3 were more productive and are wayyyy younger.

Of course they do. They are both far younger, and LeBron is argued by many to already be better.

I would think that since it is a business, they would atleast think about trading Kobe(since he is getting older, even though he is still great) for someone like LBJ or CP3 since they are still young, great, and not even in their prime yet.

CP3 and LB is more valuable because of their age and potential.
Besides they fit for their teams pretty well especially Paul.

If there are gonna be a trade,i would think about Tmac.Rocket might be good with that.
But do you lakers want Tmac? Maybe plus Shane Battier,huh?

10-09-2008, 11:22 AM
I don't think so, it wouldn't be smart to piss away the chemistry we gained last season, especially whilst we're trying to get the chemistry back with Bynum...

If we weren't a contender, then maybe, but right now it's about the stupidest thing the Lakers could do.

i dnt think it will hurt the lakers if they trade kobe for lebron but the cavs will never...ever do that trade.

It could potentially screw up the chemistry. A lot of LeBron's game is driving to the basket and creating contact, but it's already going to be crowded down there with Pau and Bynum. Also, LeBron would be yet another SF, and we'd be depleted in the back court with only Fisher, Farmar and Sasha.

if they are a loyal franchise and kobe plays good for them and keeps in-line and doesn't ask for a trade, they better not.

No way, because if the lakers traded him Kobe would make it his sole purpose in life to make them regret it. He would score 40 per game, win the MVP and average 250 points per game against the lakers

Lebron held down Pierce better than Kobe did.

CP3 led the league in steals as well and made the defensive team.

CLEVELAND (AP)—The two superstars wanted to guard each other in the final moments: Kobe on LeBron. LeBron on Kobe.

It had to end like that.

“I didn’t even ask,” James said. “I just told Sasha (Pavlovic) to go somewhere else.”

James scored 33 points and shut out Bryant when the NBA’s top two scorers went one-on-one in the final 2:23 and the Cleveland Cavaliers bounced back from a dismal loss with a 94-90 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday night.



Looks like Lebron did quite well on defense.

No, they SHOULD if they are not stupid and focus simply on BUSSINESS.

But Lakers are loyal.

They Were offered a high Pick by the Hornets for Big Game James who was on a later stage of his career and they said NO, that pick turned to Be Grandmama Johnson.

Out of Loyalty i think they wouldnt trade him.

But it is STUPID no to do it specially for Lebron.

The Lakers would be fools to not trade Kobe for LeBron or Chris Paul.
Bynum and CP3/LeBron running the Lakers for the next ten years?

Kobe for Chris Paul?

Odom, Gasol, Farmar, Ariza and two firsts for B. Wallace, E. Snow and LeBron? The Lakers could use Wallace's expiring to sign Bynum long term. (Never happen, I know)

I'd still keep Kobe for the sake of this season, but you gotta think long term. CP3 and LeBron are the only players with higher trade value than Kobe. You could argue Dwight, but not with Bynum in the middle for the Lakers.

:laugh: Dude, you need to stop coming up with this ********. Kobe doesn't even guard Pierce, maybe only a few possessions a game. As for that article, Lebron hardly shut down Kobe during that game. I remember it because I knew people would be saying that after I watched it. Kobe deferred to his teammates during the end of that game because they were doubling, so he didn't score.

If its the last year of his contract, and he decides to confess that he will be leaving cleveland, then I think this is as good a deal as you could possibly get.

You cant be serious with this stuff. So if I took an article from a paper after last years summer game, when Kobe made the go ahead shot and then proceeded to stop Lebron from scoring the next possession, that would end all arguments right?:rolleyes: Or how about 2 years ago when Kobe hit 4 jumpers in Lebrons face in the 4th quarter while Lebron missed his game winning attempt. Should we have said its no contest then?

Plus, Kobe did not guard Pierce for more than a handful of possessions each game. I remember Lebron guarding Pierce while he went off for 40 something points though.

Anyways to the question. I hope they dont trade him and I hope he does not go anywhere and become one of the few great players to stay with one team his whole career. Like Magic, Reggie Miller, Bill Russell and probably some others I am forgetting. Loyalty is a very nice thing to have

Loyalty has to go both ways and Kobe's loyalty is directly tied to our teams success

I know that. I said I hope the Lakers dont trade him and he does not go anywhere. Meaning I hope is does not opt out to go look for a better deal somewhere else. If he stays after this season, he will be a Laker for life. P.S. The Cavs would never trade Lebron for Kobe and a first. Lebron is about as untouchable as a player can get. If the Lakers could get Lebron, I would throw that loyalty crap right out the window. But for the players that would be offered for Kobe, I would take a big PASS

Trading a player before they start down is good business.
Usually, stars name & image remains even even after they have started downhill.
And their pay stays high, way too high. So get cheaper better players or at least cheaper players with higher up sides.

This next year or so is the most the Laker's will ever get for kobe, so if he can't bring a title with all the talent around him...trade him while his value is high.
The Laker's owe no loyalty to kobe.

Hellcrooner
10-11-2008, 03:00 AM
No, even if they wanted they woulnt be able to do it, because he has a NO TRADE clause, i gurantee you that if Cleveland was crazy enough to offed Lebron for him he woudl veto the trade beause he woudlnt want to go play in cleveland with some scrubs.

Only way Kobe does not retire a laker is if he himself demands a trade or opts out at seasons end...... wich woudl be intriguin, since without his contract and Odoms and radamns in 2010 they woudl have enough Monehy to go for Lebron or Wade in the "magic" Summmer,,,,

Lebron, Pau, Bynum ........sounds good.

now i understand that you are really a kobe hater. but honestly you know that kobe is better than mj... and you know why? because kobe had done things that mj never did until he retired. and one more thing mj's era is not comparable to kobe's era where he is always guarded by lock-down defenders, aside from being double-teamed or triple-teamed. if you argue, name some lock-down defenders who guarded mj during his era and compare it to kobe's stoppers during his era.
