So if you're the Lakers, who do you want to pay $15mil a year to if you trade Kobe, Pierce who'll get you 25PPG, 7RPG and 5APG or Ben who'll give you 2.8PPG, 8.9RPG and 0.0001APG?


Pierce, #5 pick and Gerald Green(or Rajon Rondo) straight up for Kobe. (Lakers get to keep Bynum in this scenario)
Kobe and Al Jefferson could be a formidable 1-2 punch in the (L)East.
And Danny Ainge left on a jet for LA last night with a DVD of Paul Piecre's highlights under one arm and the name of a great DUI lawyer under the other arm.

The plot thickens.
I dislike Kobe Bryant, but there's no denying his talent and the Celtics should seriously look into that, although it probably won't happen.

Take Tim Duncan off the team and its zero finals in 5 years.

Take Manu off, its 3 finals in 5 years.

And your point is?

I never said Manu was the star of the team, I just said he is a good player.

i never said ginobli wasn't a good player. he is/was. he seems to me to have lost a step this season... perhaps he's injured and not letting on... but he's still a nice quality player who would be held in the same regard as hedo turkaglou if he wasn't playing along side the (arguarbly) greatest power forward of all time.

that said, he flops so much it drives you crazy. i think it's about time that you acknowledge that.

The sentence implies that Manu is the reason the Spurs have made 3 finals in 5 years.
I simply pointed out that the one player most responsible is Duncan.

Would you call Scottie Pippen the greatest player of the 90's because of his 6 rings?

Did Greg Kite or Scott Wedman lead the Celts to titles in the 80's?
Or Kurt Rambis lead the Lakers to 5 rings?

Your wording implied that a role player was the reason behind the Spurs' success.

Manflop is a good role player.

There are now reports saying that the Knicks are the only team Kobe wants to be traded to.

I, for one, find that hard to believe. He's citing poor management as the primary reason for wanting out, so why in god's name would he want to go to NYK? That's like saying, I'm going to stop smoking cigars now because I don't want to get cancer, and instead, I'm going to start smoking cigarrettes.
