due to injury or lack of trade partners

would the Lakers organization go down the drain?

Doesn't the amnesty period end at midnight tonight?

If

And no, not even close. They'd trade everything for Dwight, sign Deron in the offseason - they'd be fine.

Unless he became Brandon Roy-ed then I don't think there is any possible way the Lakers would amnesty him.

If it meant getting cap space and financial relief to sign Deron Williams or Dwight Howard, maybe. I personally think that would be wise but not good for pr and the die hard Kobe fanatics.

Yes, it does end tonight, I DONT SEE IT HAPENING though. but I also cant see anyone trading for Kobe's rediculously large contract.

If the Lakers were dumb enough to amnesty Kobe? I'd like to think Kobe would sign to the Clips for the vets minimum and help destroy the Lakers every year for the rest of his career. As if Kobe needs to be MORE competitive.

Kobe getting amnestied is never going to happen.

Yeah they should amnesty him. He's clearly not a productive player anymore. At this point he's reduced to merely one of the top 10 best in the game. Not acceptable........

What the hell are we talking about here??? It's Kobe friggin Bryant!!!
Why would the Lakers even consider trading him let alone CUTTING him? Are you serious?

Unbelievable

Uh...

A) This isn't happening
B) They'd have a ton of free money to bring in the next Kobe. It's the Lakers, every NBA player wants to play there
