Kobe Bryant and the Bulls?

Steven Freeman/

OMG! I'm so tired of "Ko-baby", please Lakers just trade him to the Bulls and get it over with. The season starts Oct. 30 and Kobe still doesn't have a true home. Buss, owner of the Lakers is finally ready to hear offers for the whining superstar and the Bulls are the front-runners. The Lakers are asking for the following players: Deng, Gordon, Thomas, and Noah! Wow, talk about over-haul of the team! The only problem with that deal is Bryant wouldn't have any desires to play for them if they don't have enough players that can support the ball-hogger! They're the only team I can think of that has enough cap-space and players that can equal the value of Bryant. I can only assume that Gordon would have to give up that number in the trade. He still won't compare to the greatness of Jordan! Do you think it's possible for " Big Ben" and " Ko-baby" to co-exist?

People are blaming Kobe for everything's gone wrong in L.A. since Shaq was traded. Stop doing that. Here's why.

No one made the Lakers accept the little bit that they got for Shaq. And no one made them decide to draft Andrew Bynum or keep him over Jason Kidd, Jermaine O'Neal, AND Kevin Garnett.

Now, they're trying to prove that they've got big balls by demanding all of the Bulls' best players for Kobe, which will make Kobe veto the trade, and I can't say I blame him.

Thing is, the Lakers have no leverage, because at some point, they're going to have to take what they can get for Kobe, which is going to wind up being less than what's being offered right now. They're still screwed because Kobe's just gonna opt-out in two years, then they'll be left with nothing. The fact that Mitch Kupchak and Jerry Buss have no idea what they're doing is the reason why Kobe wants out. They created this mess, not Kobe.

The perception that he might leave if they didn't trade Shaq is what started this. Now, I guarantee you that if Jerry West was still in L.A., none of this would have happened. Period. It's not Kobe's fault.

This is going to wind up benefitting me anyway, because Kobe's going to end up in Chicago before it's all said and done. As long as the Bulls don't give up Luol Deng and Andres Nocioni to get him, anything else they send will be fine with me. Trade Kobe!
