It's probably going to be Chicago, Philly, or Charlotte.

Philly has nothing to give, Charlotte isn't a good fit.

Chicago is the team everybody is expecting.

Alright, I can see your point about Philly, but how's Charlotte not a good fit?

It's a relatively weak division other than the Magic and maybe the Wizards (the Heat will be absolutely terrible this season) and the Bobcats have a lot of young pieces to give. Plus, there's the added incentive of playing under his idol, MJ.

I doubt he would go to such a small market team.

Chicago has better young pieces to give...

Ben Gordon
Luol Deng
Andres Nocioni
Tyrus Thomas
Jokaim Noah

Except is is very unlikely that Paxson lets go of Deng, even for Kobe.

And keep in mind, Kobe has a no-trade clause...he can veto any trade. He wants to win. He won't ok a trade that depletes the destination team so much that he no longer has a good team around him.

And Charlotte JUST traded for Jason Richardson...same position.

Richardson can be a trade piece for salary purposes. I don't know, the Charlotte thing is a longshot, but I think it's still in some realm of possibility.

Chicago sounds like a definite, but what about New York?

What does NY have to give? Isiah isn't going to trade Curry or Lee, and he JUST got Randolph.

Marbury? Marbury+Crawford+pick+what?

I don't think NY has enough to get it done, but even if they did, they'd have to break the bank, and the team around Kobe wouldn't be good anymore, and he'd veto it.

I'd throw Stephen A. in there for good measure.

My money's on Kobe starting the season with the Lake Show.

The buzz in Dallas and LA is that the Mavericks are offering Jason Terry, Josh Howard, and the Mavs' 08 and 10 first round picks for Kobe.

I love Josh and I hate to deplete draft picks... but you kind of have to pull the trigger on that if it's there. Kobe's the exact kind of superstar Dirk has said he doesn't want to be, so it'd be good to get a guy in who:

1. Actually plays excellent defense
2. Has the swagger
3. Has the rings
4. Can "score the basketball" and take pressure off of Dirk

At present, Kobe plays better defense and even averages more assists than any Maverick. If this deal is able to go through, I think it's a no brainer.

kobe was drafted by the hornets and demanded a trade because he didn't want to play in charlotte.

something tells me his mind isn't going to change on that one.

Maybe Ainge can swing a deal and we can have the "big 4" in Boston.

Actually that would be good, cause I am tired of hearing KG, PP and Jesus Shuttleworth called the "big 3".

There was one big 3, and good as these 3 players may be, they don't measure up size wise or accomplishment wise to the true big 3.

yea... if the celtics were able to do that with so little talent outside of the medium sized 3, it would officialy make buss the worst GM/owner in sports history, instantly over-taking both dolan, isiah and matt millen.

even though i don't think he wants any part of charlotte... kobe would have a better chance at getting to the finals on any team in the east than he would with the lakers in the west.

not that he'd have a good chance in charlotte... but, yea. he'd at least be in the playoffs every year.

if he goes anywhere i'd have to imagine it would be to the bulls. no one else has what LA would be looking for.


btw... is it prediction time yet?

If Kobe gets traded to Chicago, would the Bulls have to include Ben Wallace for contract/money reasons?
